Happy Day, Sad Day

Today is a bitter sweet day for us.  It would have been my due date if our first Little One had made it.  However, as sad as we are to not be holding our first Little One this Spring, we are ecstatic that our Ultrasound appointment and screening went fantastic last night.  We were both nervous going in to the appointment, because it was this appointment last time that we got the heartwrenching news that our baby had not survived.  This time was so very different.  Our Little One was moving all around and doing flips, but the ultrasound technician was able to get a few great shots.  We have a few profile shots, one of the baby's arm, and one of the baby's leg.  The two pictures posted are from my first ultrasound, done at 8 weeks 5 days, and this ultrasound, done at 12 weeks 5 days.  It is amazing how much they change in just 4 short weeks.  The baby is already the size of a lime, and weighs over an ounce. Next week, it will have developed its fingerprints. 


  1. Ok, first of did I not know about your horrible loss??? I feel awful that I didn't know. I am so sorry, but I am so excited that you guys are pregnant again and sharing the good news with us. We could not be more excited for you!!!! All our Love......and you know September babies are the best! Paige was born on the 20th, ad River on the 25th!! xo
