so- i posted for the first time earlier today. so scared about having a potential downs syndrome baby. i don't even know for sure, but my labs are off and i have to have more screening.
but-- my husband who was gone last night for work came home and i told him. i have already lost two babies and i was so scared to tell him. he said to me, you know God has picked out our kids a long time ago and this one is special for us. if he/she is healthy, sick, normal, disabled, whatever...this is our baby- a miracle.
man oh man i am grateful for this man. my friend, my lover, my soulmate. i am luckier than i deserve to be. hope some of y'all feel the same way. how did i get so lucky?

well no one responded to my post, but i am still so grateful! Lat week my husband and me went from excited to be pregnant 15 weeks, to maybe having a baby with Downs Syndrome, to finding out we are expecting twins and i am 14 weeks not nearing 16 like i thought. rough week for sure.
today i return to work and i see a bunch of roses on my desk; 5 red ones for each year of marriage, two pink ones for the babies i lost and two tiny white buds for the twins that grow inside me. i feel so lucky. today of all days. i was so sleepy and queasy that i did not get up to cook breakfast for derek. i usually make a meal for us to share before he leaves for an overnight flight so we can talk, say a quick prayer and he leaves before i go to work. today i just slept and derek did not complain. he said good-bye and left. i am a lucky woman. this man is so good. i almost don't deserve him.
