Baby Bear's First Prenatal Appointment

We had our first prenatal appointment yesterday.  I was terrified, I was worried all day, sick to my stomach, trying to prepare for the worst, thinking that I would have to say goodbye to another child.  Of course everything went well, Bear is measuring normal for gestational age, there is a beautiful flickering heartbeat and I felt like I could breathe for the first time all day.  This pregnancy feels more real now, but also still like a dream that I could wake up from.  So many years of infertility and then two pregnancies without any Western medical intervention in such a short time span....  We are so blessed.


  1. Little Baby Bear. Stay strong.

  2. Whew whew whew!! Onward.... Grace absolutely must be watching over all 3 of you, personally assisting this child to come to it's vivacious robust life outside your womb and will join with great satisfaction her family you hold him/her - all together.
    Congratulations on a very successful appointment! There are lots of BLMs out there who will ride this ride with you. It's the only way I think I got through mine with any trace of sanity. Look for them online, I promise it's worth it. :)
