I am sad.
I am happy.
Sad because in just a few weeks, I would have been due with that little bird who flew away.
I would have been experiencing some pre-labor I'm sure and getting my bags packed.
But that was not meant to be.
Now that your thoroughly saddened with me, let's take a turn toward life.
I am happy because today I am 16 weeks along with the next little blessing! I was slightly fearful between week 9 and week 15. But that has past, only trust remains.
I have heard this little one's heart beating 2 times now, steady and strong. At the first hearing of that miracle sound, my midwife said "That is the best heartbeat I've heard in a long time!" I knew there was double meaning to those words. She walked through the hard times with me.
My baby looks like this today:
Miracle of life. So beautiful. Inside me. Wonderment.
My belly is getting rotund and my barely there chest is finally perking up!
I am thankful to the Author of all life today.
