/ The RE's Muse: A mother's intuition

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

A mother's intuition

For weeks now, I've sworn up and down that I'm carrying another girl. Everything with this pregnancy has been spot on to that of my pregnancy with J.

At today's amnio appointment, we received confirmation that Juliana is going to be a big sister to a little girl (no, the amnio results didn't come back that quickly--the u/s scan before the amnio clearly showed a little one who had very little modesty when it came to showing off her girly bits).

The amnio itself went well. It was a bit more painful than the one I had with J but still bearable. Now we wait the requisite 10 to 14 days to find out if BG 2.0 (baby girl 2.0) is healthy (knock on wood).

A and I are beyond thrilled at the news of another little lady to love. And love her we already do.

P.S. Thank you for your help with my boob dilemma. I went back and found Julie's post--seems like a trip to the lingerie department at Nordstrom is in my not-too-distant future. Thankfully, it's right across the street from my peri.

Hooray! Congrats on the girl and the amnio going well. You must have had a nice tech. I asked mine if she could see any bits and parts and she snapped, "Too early for that!" The genetics center I visited wasn't the most friendly place in the world. Will this baby be the same season as J's birth? It certainly would be a money saver on the clothing!

Congratulations on the impending little sister! How awesome. In the words of Hub-D, "Every girl needs a sister." It's SO TRUE! Just ask my sister and me -- I mean, you need another chick to laugh at your parents with...
Also, it's so funny you wrote about your boobs. Yesterday I went to Nordstrom and presented my new post-weaning boobs and basically said, "Can you do anything with these?" There was a lot of lifting and tucking involved, but I've got some new bras. Do it! You'll feel so... supported.

Forgot to thank you when I commented yesterday for sending out the link to the thread project through your RESOLVE newsletter. Is there any listserv for boards of regional chapters to send the message? Get it going in other regions?
