Thank You

September was a big month around here.  I had wrestled with the decision to leave my program all summer and finally made it official at the beginning of September.  Then, literally three days later, I found out I was pregnant.  That's some crazy timing right there, folks.  It was a lot of emotional up and down in the span of one week and I can honestly say I don't feel the need to go through that craziness again anytime soon.  But, it made me grow and stretch; uncomfortable spaces make that happen, and it's when I learn the most.  Perhaps the universe was trying to tell me something?

Thank you all for your kind comments, texts, and emails following my last post.  It was definitely the right time to start blogging again; little did I know how soon or how greatly I would need this outlet and all of your support... but I sure do!  So, thank you.

Hopefully we can return to regularly scheduled mommy blogging and move past all this excitement for a little while.  A drama-free, boring pregnancy would be lovely!  

Oh, and to answer Dawn's question, I'm about 7 weeks along and due the end of May!  Still early... still plenty of time to fret and obsess.  My first appointment with my midwife is in 3 weeks.  After that we'll schedule the 1st trimester screening for around 12 weeks, when we'll get another peek at the bean.    

Hoping and praying until then.  

p.s. Does anyone else wish they were as wealthy as Tom Cruise and could buy an ultrasound machine for  home use????

I'm so glad you're back to blogging! Congratulations again, and isn't it funny the timing of things sometimes? Just kinda makes you stop and go, "huh....." ;)

Thanks for answering my questions! I know it is so hard to squelch that fear, but the hope always wins out in the end. It's amazing how things work out some times. You are in my prayers.
