Isn't it lovely?

Last night, while I was driving I felt my baby move for the first time! The experience brought tears to my eyes. It was like nothing I have known before. It's a pulsating feeling inside your lower belly and it is wonderful!

I know I have been quiet for a while and haven't posted. Honestly I haven't had much to say. I've been going through life one day at a time hoping for the best. The anatomy scan is scheduled for the first week of January. At that point we will have a clue if the Single Umbilical Artery has caused any birth defects for our baby. I'm wishing and hoping that everything will be OK, but alas like everything else it is out of my hands (I hate that!). I think after I get the results of that scan I can either breath a sigh of relief or prepare myself for what it means to care for a baby with potential birth defects.

On the bright side, now that I can feel the baby move, the ever consuming question of "Is she still alive in there?" gets answered frequently. Oh what a blessing!

Yay for feeling Baby Girl move! It must feel miraculous.

Praying that all continues to go well and that January's scan brings nothing but excellent news.

BTW - I tried to email you a couple of times at your hot account, but got errors.

Just thinking about that feeling (one I fantasize about regularly) brought tears to my eyes. I'm so happy for you. Good luck and try to stay sane, despite the insanity that is Life.
