One Year Ago

One year ago today, my Dr. confirmed my 3rd pregnancy with a blood test.  I had already gotten 2 positive HPTs...this was just my confirmation.  I remember sitting at Louie's with Taura eating lunch when Beverly called to tell me the good news.  My numbers were great and it was my first pregnancy since my surgery in September 2008.  I was very nervous and very anxious, because this was like THE test...did my surgery work?  We sure were going to find out!  At 6 weeks and 1 day, we went to the Dr. and we heard and saw the best thing in the world...there was a heartbeat!  I couldn't believe it!  I was astonished, hopeful, and yet fearful all at the same time!  This marked something we had never experienced before!

Who knew that 17 short weeks after that joyous moment, we would be experiencing my the most devastating and heartbreaking of moments? 

But one year ago today I was happy, life was good, and all was right in my world.  It's hard to believe a year from that one moment has gone by...

It's hard all over again now that anniversaries of happy days are starting pop up. I am thinking of you and Bailey often.

I know I look back on myself before the miscarriages... and I feel that that gal was an entirely different person.

Time really passes so strangely.

I'm praying that next year at this time, you'll find yourself either with a baby in your arms... or one on the way.

Sending you hugs...

Those moments are surreal and just beginning for us. It is amazing how much can change in that time, how we can be changed forever in one moment.
