Happy 30 to us!

This is a "30th" that I definitely want to celebrate. What a huge milestone for us!! Looking back at that last few trimesters (omgosh I can't believe I can actually say that outloud!) - it has been filled with an emotional and physical roller coaster ride.  I can still remember the moment we got a BFP with Sprout and how nervous/scared/happy I was.  How I thought "was this really the One" or would our hearts and spirits be crushed once again. Then, as each week passed us by, my heart opened just a little bit more to the possibilities. 

I recall how happy our families were to hear of the news, everyone jumping up and down and hugs all around in our living room. My mind was still apprehensive but the hope and the light at the end of this dreary tunnel started to get brighter and brighter. What it felt like to see Sprout's heartbeat for the first time. What it feels like now to feel his/her movements getting stronger and stronger.  My belly getting bigger and bigger.

These upcoming 10 weeks will be the homestretch.  I feel like I can see the finish line *just over there* and imagining a real, live, cute, cuddly baby in my arms is becoming more of reality than a dream.  

I would not be here without the support of this team - my bloggy buddies, my prayer army.  If only all women who have gone through loss and trying times can find support through complete strangers as I have, it would make the journey seem less treacherous and more bearable.  I look forward to sharing with you all what these next 10 weeks or so will be like - and I can't wait to share my happily ever after story, finally.

  7. I remember being mixed with excitement and some concern at 30 weeks (due to my sister-in-law's late loss)...but now that I'm at 36 weeks, 30 weeks seems like it was so long ago...and yet I don't know where the time went! I'm looking forward to sharing all that is to come in the next 10 weeks!
