Girl Power

Today I fell in love. It was the strangest thing. What was before such a huge burden finally feels like a blessing.

I saw my baby on ultrasound today, which is also my pregnancy hump day (fitting name). I saw my little girl. Her femur, her spine and all four chambers of her little heart were absolutely beautiful. Today the pregnancy stopped being about me and started being about her. I am finally excited.

I'm having a baby girl!

I feel exhilarated. And on the writing side, I've made it a goal to write every day again. I'd left all my passions alone for awhile. Something inside me is waking up.

This is a beautiful post, Hoodie. It sums up your changing perspective and possibilities.

(I'm glad those vomiting days...weeks...are over now.)

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to hear your "voice"!

Chanting: We want pictures! We want pictures!

Oh, and have you thought about getting a 3D ultrasound?

Missed you!

What a wonderful transformation. Nothing can drive that connection home like an ultrasound. It's a fall-in-love machine. :)

I'm so happy that you're feeling rejuvenated, Hoodie! It's good to see you back, too.

I'm glad you're 'waking up' again--I remember that feeling very well!!

Wow. There's little to compare with the moment you connect with your unborn child. Enjoy it all!

Thanks for joining the book launch party, Hoodie. It was great having you!

A baby girl. How wonderful! Congratulations!

I've really missed you so hopefully this means you'll be getting out in the blogging world more. ;)

Isn't that a beautiful feeling?

I get to see child #2 on the ultrasound early next month. I'm so excited.
