Short and bittersweet

  • I am no longer carrying a healthy baby. Very sad. I came back from vacation expecting and preparing for the worst. But after the ultrasound and heartbeat, I got my hopes back up. Now the heartbeat is gone. Not sure how much it has really hit me yet. Everything went so smoothly with Marissa that I kinda didn't think this could ever happen. Oh well. D & C scheduled for next Friday. Any tips on weaning/not weaning/pumping, etc. (keeping in mind the Dr's worry about Marissa's lack of weight gain) for the surgery are much needed. Moving on...
  • The house is wonderful, but it's a disaster area. It is a very slow, but exciting process of unpacking and arranging things.
  • We bought a king size bedroom set, and it was delivered Wednesday! We love it! Pictures soon.
  • Marissa is diligently practicing for her upcoming (2 yr) birthday already. Wow. Whining, screaming, squealing, biting...we're having a grand time More pictures soon. I know, I've been slacking off. She is finally drinking milk! It took some convincing, but she drinks it out of a sippy with a straw now. Hopefully it will help her gain some much needed weight. She also has been eating a little better. The other day she had 6 chicken nuggets for lunch, among other things. And she ate her first PB&J too She also is well on her way to mastering the use of a fork and spoon. It's so darn cute, and she's so proud of herself. She's actually not too messy either. She is so much fun lately, and so loving. Just what I need these days. She certainly knows how to make her momma happy!
  • Rach (my sis) is moving into our extra bedroom this weekend, and will eventually move into the basement once we get it finished. Fun times ahead!
  • We finally have internet at our house! I'd been going through xanga-withdrawal. I promise to get back to posting regularly as soon as I can! In the meantime, I will be busy setting up our house and trying to cope with the difficult things ahead.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I have been in the same place that you are and I know how very painful it is and how hard it is to understand. I know that nothing I can say will really make you feel better.

Hang in there! I just said a prayer for you...

I am very sorry to hear about your loss! I will be sure to keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Yay for Marissa taking milk! My little guy is tiny also and won't take milk yet. We're working on that!

Hang in there.
