We had our 8 week appt today. Other than lots of information, 100 reasons to be afraid, and some necessary bloodwork/labs, there wasn't much to hip hooray about. After hearing all of the things you need to avoid and all the genetic things that COULD go wrong, I told Brian, "yes, you COULD go outside and get hit by a car, so make sure you look both ways before crossing the street!"
Good lord things have really changed since my last pregnancy!! They didn't tell me any of these things. There is a lot to worry about if you choose to. My prayer is that I/we will enjoy each stage of the pregnancy and not worry about every little thing. It is hard and as a parent is never ending. Once they are born, that fear only continues and gets worse. So, we just have to make a conscious choice not to live in fear.
So, that is the update for now. We go back in two weeks. Right now, the date of birth would be September 13, 2008....(the due date is the 20th but with the C-section, it would be 9/13....Please continue to keep us and Baby H in your prayers. God truly has been miraculous in this situation.
