And the good news is...

The baby is doing great, the midwife found the heartbeat easily and it was strong at 170bpm!! I am so relieved. I think I may put up a pregnancy ticker soon, I'm almost feeling safe enough now. YEAH!!

Now for the bad news..

We went over the Ultrasound report from my u/s. We would have had twins. We lost one at 6 weeks. They were fraternal which means I ovulated twice. We are in shock. Amazed that we would have had 2 and devastated to have lost one. I have some grieving to do, I don't think I've fully grieved my first miscarriage and now I have to add to that. I am so grateful that I still have a healthy growing baby growing inside me or I'd be a complete mess. 3 pregnancies, one beautiful daughter, 2 losses, and still pregnant. Definitely feeling weird at the moment.

It makes me so aware of how fragile life really is, and how blessed we really are to have the children that we do. Congratulations are in order in spite of what you must be feeling. Love you lots!

I am still wrapping my head around that one! I agree with what Sue said. It really does make you realize how precious life is. Congratulations though and I will keep praying. We love you. You got those tickers up!! I like the one on the side. Hugs Chel.
