Hi Nummies! Lovely to be HERE! I like the sound of kicking brothers...!
Nummies, Gumby, Julia's Mom, Thanks for the help on the 6 wk u/s details.
CRM, Thanks for the eloquent comment
I appreciate that. You make such a good point. There is not going to be a defining moment when we are told to relax and it's important to decide within to enjoy this. I am enjoying it, for sure, it's just quite a transition after being so defined by being "infertile" with no kids, and I suspect I'll enjoy it just a bit more after the u/s.
Anyhow, thanks for your self-generated smilie fest. That is the right idea.
Besides, my friend tells me, "Worry is ... Faith in reverse with the pedal to the metal." I was thinking of making some kind of ceremony for myself after the appt. this week to help mark letting some of the long journey go and celebrating what is happening NOW.
Full of Hope and EffervescentMind, Thank you both for your thoughtful and compassionate replies. Sharing the aftershocks with you guys was really helpful for me and I appreciate the candid talk about transitioning from constant medical monitoring and disappointment to actual motherhood and pregnancy!
Jelinifer, Nice! Appt. on Tuesday! I would not be surprised if you have more than one in there...for some reason.
Don't know what kind of symptom this is, but
I have had multiple dreams now about babies in cabbage patches, surreal huge thriving cabbage patches with perfectly globular cabbages bursting with babies.
