Beautiful things

In my Women Who Do Too Much calender today, I received this:
"To be surrounded by beautiful things has much influence on the human creature; to make beautiful things has more."
- Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Well...I am making something beautiful...

And, it is amazing.

My EDD is now changed (by one day) to June 10th - I am measuring perfectly from the u/s done on 10/24: 10 weeks, 1 day. I am also getting kicked and punched like a massive soccer ball...might have to talk to this baby about it when I start feeling the movement in the weeks to come. Heart rate is about 150 bmp.

And, I gained no weight from the last appointment three weeks ago - very good, since I am eating like a cow right now!

Everything looks so right.

It is so amazing right now. But, it still feels so, so unreal - two years ago this Thanksgiving Day, I had my d&e for my second m/c. This Thanksgiving, we will be sharing very different - very good - news at just a few days shy of 12 weeks pregnant. It is hard to wrap my head around that. I am having a hard time, still, feeling happy. I am - I am elated! But, I have - and probably always will until this baby is born - that cautious voice in the back of my head. I am trying hard to ignore it...but, knowing how bad things can go now, it is rather hard to ignore it.

I am taking it day by day... And praying day by day...

Enjoy every minute and"try not to worry" about sharing the news, you want your friends and family to be there for the good and heaven forbid if anything bad happens... but things are looking great so enjoy that~! But i know what you mean of the innocence being lost because of all that you know- they say ignorance is bliss! Too bad we are too smart :)
HUGS to you, ENJOY
love di
thanks for being there

Oh I am sooo happy for you!!!
I also spent my last Thanksgiving m/c-ing so there seems to much to be thankful for for both of us this year.

Blessings to you and your little one!

I am so glad things are going so well with the pregnancy. I can't wait to hear about how everything goes when you tell your family on Thanksgiving.
