we had our mid-point ultrasound today. the baby slept through the whole thing, despite me drinking cold water, eating tootsie rolls, rolling around, and poking him. we’re actually going to have to do another one next month because they weren’t able to see all the important things they need to see to make sure everything is healthy.

snuggling the placenta pillow

so, although lazybones was uncooperative with what the dr felt was important, i was able to roll around just enough for the tech to get up under the legs and see that IT’S A BOY!!! the turkey is going to have a little brother and they’re going to be best buddies! i feel so incredibly blessed.

baby brother!!!!

One more day…

   Posted by: arcanai    in happy things, heartache

I spent the night last night hanging out with my daddy. We talked and laughed and shot pool together. He knew about the sequel and was happy for us. He laughed about the turkey’s shenanigans. I yelled at him for leaving a day too early. We hugged fiercely when it was time for him to go and Eskimo kissed until my nose hurt. I woke up feeling his presence… And his absence. I miss that man so much but I’m grateful that he reaches out to me when I need him most.

Mom enough

   Posted by: arcanai    in the sequel, the turkey

I love my little turkey so completely that my heart aches when I look at him. When he smiles at me or calls my name, my heart bursts. I can physically feel my overwhelming love for him. He’s always had all of me. Now, I smile at the little kicks in my belly and I worry. The sequel deserves all of me too but the turkey doesn’t deserve any less of me. And suddenly I’m hyperventilating and crying because I don’t know if I’ll be mom enough for both of these precious blessings. I don’t want either of them to ever question my love for them.

it’s good to be home after a trip to the mountains with the in-laws.  the turkey had a great time playing with grandparents and aunts/uncles/cousins.  i’m just worn out.
