Second Trimester

Today, I'm 13 weeks, 3 days pregnant, and this is officially the first day of my second trimester.

Two months ago, I was sobbing hysterically (that's an understatement) in the ER because I truly believed this pregnancy was over--and that Danny and I would never be able to have biological children.

And today, I'm entering my second trimester. Today, our baby's heartbeat was louder than ever on the doppler. Today, I feel so blessed.

...despite the fact that it's 3 a.m., and I've been awake for 2 hours because I can't stop peeing, and it feels like there's a campfire going on in my chest. This baby's kicking my butt tonight... but I think it's his or her way of saying, "I'm still here, Mom!"

You sure are, kid.

I just found your blog through thebump and I should say that I truly admire your courage! I just had one loss, at 27 weeks last year and today I am 16 weeks pregnant...just 3 weeks ahead of you... Just like your DH, my DH and I have decided not to find out the sex of the baby this time...I get anxious at times, but reading stories like yours make me realize that I am not alone...and we gotta stay positive!!!
good Luck to u!

I'm terribly sorry for your loss, E. Hearing of late losses always rips my heart out. You're right, though--let's stay positive. We're bringing these babies home with us! :)
