Another View

I went yesterday afternoon to see the pe.rinatalogist again*. Again it went very very well. Dr C. says this baby looks about as healthy as a baby can possibly look. I have trouble believing him. I want to, but I imagine there is some mysterious ailment around every corner. The shadow of losing Owen is always over us. I can see bright times ahead but can't quite believe they're real. Is it even possible that an "easy" pregnancy can follow one where the worst has happened? I hope so but I don't know, so I hold my breath a little longer.



* I put up some of the ultrasound pics here. You are welcome to look if you'd like, but if you are not there, I understand.

Edited to add- I almost forgot we will be away for the next week with limited to no Internet access, so don't worry if things get silent over here for awhile.

If I could hold my breath that long I would, as I imagine you are too. An easy pg after a stillbirth, yeah, that's right up there with unicorns and flying nuns...

cute. the photos look girly to me but i'm no sonographer! :)

I think its hard to treat this pregnancy like you did with the ones in your past. I wouldn't feel guilty because you take the pregnancy seriously. But I do hope you get to smile and enjoy it from time to time.
