9 Weeks

I really must remember to unenroll myself from the weekly Baby Center emails…

There I was happy as could be with the thought of starting over when my inbox surprised me with “My Pregnancy at 9 Weeks:” 

Baby Center

Sigh. I didn’t really want to know that my lost baby would have been forming teeth this week or that the sex organs would be developing, even if still not distinguishable.  In another 9 weeks, we’d have known what sex for sure.  And although most days I go on with my life, this thought today completely depresses me.

I already spend enough time postulating girl or boy, girl or boy?  Either would be wonderful.  I now just have to wait 20 weeks to find out, if we’re lucky.  Pray this month is a good one.  The waiting is murder.

    I am crossing all my fingers and toes for you and wishing you good luck. Enjoy this this you have now because week 8 and 9 were my worst morning sickness weeks. Are you already taking prenatals?

    Thanks Leah!

    I’ve been good about taking my vitamins — never really stopped since we figured we would give it another go as soon as we were allowed to!

    I’m thinking of nothing but good thoughts for you & your husband. We got pregnant right after Christmas & then had a miscarriage on Feb. 4th. It would have been our first & we were devastated. I got my period in March & by April I was pregnant again. As of today I’m 14 weeks. But most importantly, don’t give up hope!

    It doesn’t hurt to know a little about what you have to look forward to. I am sure it is next to impossible to not reflect on what if, but I know once you are pregnant with your little one you will feel better about everything and it will all make sense to you. Now, it’s hard. I know not being pregnant when you want to be leads to some serious insanity! But once you are and you know you WILL have a child then suddenly everything all makes sense, even that icky stuff that seemed so unbearable just a few months ago. I read my posts from the winter and I wish I could go give myself a hug and let me know that it would all work out in the end. Instead I’ll give you a virtual hug and assure you that you will look back and feel similarly someday soon.

    On a more positive note, you will be having a LOT more sex than me this month 🙂 Enjoy it!!!!

    No worries my darling, no matter how many times we have to do it (a bunch I hope), this time we’re gonna create some magic! Look out world!

    Just stumbled upon your blog and thought I would point you to a song that a friend of mine who has miscarried found she really related to – it is called Glory Baby by a group called Watermark. They are a married couple with amazing voices and from the heart songs…and after great sorrow now have beautiful children of their own. You guys will be great parents!
