Somewhere Over the Rainbow


  • I think it's understandable that you would have those thoughts and feelings.  I think it's really neat that you're waiting to find out it Little Foot is a boy or a girl.  Not many people do that these days.  I think it would be so hard for me not to cheat and try and find out... but how special it will be when you finally have him/her!

    Hang in there.  I know these next three weeks are going to be hard and slow.  Keep thinking positive.. we're all here for you if you need us :D



  • Libby-

    I so hope these next three weeks go by really, really fast for you.  I know you'll be able to breathe a huge sigh of relief after the sono.

    I too understand the true meaning of the 20 week ultrasound- i guess all of us who have been through such tragedies do....

    And btw- don't apologize for blogging about your feelings- it's totally understandable given what you've gone through and are going through :).

    Keep us posted- hugs to you.


  • Hi Libby,

    I remember all those feelings you are having. Pregnancy after a loss is so hard and no one understands all sensitivities we have....the worries, will everything be ok, the faith it takes to not worry all the time. Looking back on this last pregnancy ( which just ended two wks ago).  I do wish I was able

    to open my heart more, I spent so much time thinking about the what Ifs that I didn't enjoy allot of moments of my pregnancy and I hope you are able to enjoy those moments.

    I will be thinking of you at the 20 wk ultrasound, I know how diff that one was for me, as well as feeling those kicks. I had excessive fluid with Baron and we knew of his anomalies so I did not much as well. Wishing you a healthy pregnancy, with a plump little baby at the end:). I have faith it will happen for you!

  • Libby:

    Just yesterday I was wondering about you..... wow 17 weeks already! Yes a pregnancy after a loss is so hard, you don´t want to get excited, but I think in a way we are, just for the simple fact to be pregnant again. I will pray for you, that these 3 weeks to come, and the 20 weeks sono, will be great. Praying for 23 healthy weeks to come, and cheer for you and the baby.

    You know, I didn´t buy a thing for miss V, even when she was in NICU, I didn´t want to be so hopeful, but in my heart I was happy and excited. Go along, cheer up, and why not, dream awake, you and your baby deserve it.

    Big hug


  • I don't hear nearly enough from you girlie!!  I'm glad that all is well, but completely understand how you would have the feelings of being scared.  I haven't been there, but the idea alone scares me so I can imagine that if I were there.....those feelings would be there.  Hugs to you as you go through each day and take steps closer to the ultrasound date.  My prayers are with you!!


  • Libby,

    17 weeks already! Oh my gosh where does the time go.  I shared so many of your feelings.  I dreaded showing and tried to hide for so long just to avoid all those "SO exciting" comments.  Ugh.

    And oooh the movements.  We also had too much fluid with Akeelah and notice many more movements with Micah.  It was bittersweet.  I'll be keeping you in my thoughts as your 20 week appointment approaches.



  • Wow, 17 weeks already!  That's so wonderful to hear Libby!  I am so glad that you are going to a support group too.  I hope that is helping you along with Share.  I wish you good luck that the next few weeks whirl by so that you may breathe a little easier.

    Keep thinking those positive thoughts girl!


  • Hi. Sorry, I have been AWOL for a while, computer issues with Share site. Hopefully, it is going to be worked out soon. I have missed everyone.

    I am excited for you, and totally understand the feelings you are having. You have learned the hard lesson that just getting pregnant does not guarantee a positive outcome. That is a lesson no one ever forgets. Your feelings are very understandable.

    Here is looking forward to a good report on the 20 week ultrasound. I know that feels like a million years from now. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, you will get there.

    Sending prayers your way,
