10 Weeks

Phil: Lem, you can’t hurt a baby.
Lem: Well, you can hurt them. They’re not indestructible.
Phil: I meant it’s morally indefensible.
Lem: Well, what if the baby killed a man?
Phil: You and your moral puzzles. I just love ’em. -Better Off Ted

Our appointment with the specialist went so well this week. He was very pleased with Piglet’s progress, and said the heartbeat was very solid and strong. He also thinks that since my bleeding is triggered by bending and lifting, that it might be just my cervix bleeding, and nothing internal, which is very good. I’m still going to be monitored every 2 weeks, but he said everything looks great.

He also said I’m ok to start doing a little bit more activity, but if I start bleeding again, to back off. So I’ll start out slow, and we’ll see!

If you look closely you can see Piglet’s little legs. She/he was kicking and waving his/her little arms. In just 2 weeks we get the NT scan and we’ll get to see Piglet up close and moving around for at least 30 minutes. I can’t wait!

After our visit we had a little impromptu photo shoot in the backyard, next to the rose tree we received from my father in honor of Roo. It’s been in full bloom since we found out about Piglet, and I like to see that as a sign just from her.

Please forgive the pajama pants. If you knew how comfortable they were you wouldn’t judge me! How cute is the look Monkey is giving me? It’s like he’s asking what’s in my belly. I love that little dog, and I love this baby!




    Girl I would happily live in pajama pants and I am not pregnant- but especially when you are yes live away! And how awesome about the tree- that is wonderful!!
