Shared support needed

If you have a moment, please drop by my friend's blog
After much struggle to get pregnant, her baby died in utero. She could use some support and gentle words.

I am so sad to hear about this as I had so much hope for her and this pregnancy. Please share in a united wish that 2010 brings better times- only happiness and good things.

It's a girl!

Long time no post. I just have felt so overwhelmed with life that I haven't taken the time to do much of anything other than the required and then rest for mama and baby.

I'm almost 20 weeks now. It's hard to believe it. At 17 weeks I got a sinus infection and I was coughing so hard that I began spotting. An immediate trip to the urgent care alleviated the melt down feelings. Nothing since. Just kicking baby and clearing up stuffed nose and throat.

I hope all is easy through 24 weeks and beyond. I hope the pregnancy stays smooth and easy.

Smooth and easy is not something I have a lot of experience with but it is something I definitely need. Next u/s is in a week. They will do biweekly u/s until the end of the pregnancy to make sure everything is going ok.

For those of my blog girlfriends, please know that I am reading to keep up, and that sometimes I can't write from sheer exhaustion. I do want to say that I hope this holiday season is good for you and that you remember to be gentle with yourself.
