Acknowledgment

Maternity clothes are the only clothes in my closet. We're discussing the nursery and going to start working on it this weekend. We've started researching cribs, car seats, and bedding. I smile when she kicks and My Babe has felt her. We've narrowed down names. When people ask me about the baby I can finally feel and express a little bit of excitement. Our 21 week sonogram was great and my cervix is cooperating for once. My fFn test was negative and I'm actually feeling pretty good. I've had several dreams where I've brought a live baby home. I held a newborn the other day and didn't burst into tears.

Everyone knows. There's no turning back and the stakes are very high. So much can still go wrong. However, I'm going to have a baby girl again, and this time she will come home with me. I have faith.

I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I did and I want to tell you that I know how you feel. Dh and I have been ttc for 3 years and after 1 m/c last November, we are pg with twins -- I found out at 20 weeks I had IC, but thank God, I was a candidate for a cerclage. I too went countless times to my OB doc with pressure complaints and was told it was "ligament" pain. I was so pis*ed if we lost our babies. I have been on strict bedrest now for 7 weeks and am hoping for 2 healthy babies in 2008. We waited until 25 weeks to order our cribs and will now start prepping the nursery. I wish you all the best with your pregnancy and your secure stitch -- may both of our stitches bring us happily into parenthood.

So glad to read this. I'm happy you are finally able to invest in this pregnancy... I know how hard it is to do that after a loss. I know you probably hate hearing this, but you are a damn strong woman.

Care to share any names you've thought of? I just love hearing baby names!
