I think of the rainbow babes like this... the rainbow after the storm of sorrow. We are suffering through the storm of sorrow when the universe lets up on the storm and we get a reprise in our sorrow, there is a RAINBOW. They do not "undo" or erase the storm they just make the enduring the storm a little more hopeful. Chris~ Mommy to ^Lucy^ & Danger

25 1/2 wks... 12 or less to go!!

I am happy to say I am 25 1/2 wks as of today!! We had a really good report at the Dr's last week. For one we are definitely having another little girl :D and secondly Amelia was 1 lb 13 oz. Which they said is in the 57th percentile so they were happy all around. I was thrilled to hear she was that size b/c Emma at 31 wks was only 2 lbs. 3 oz. So seems as though the shots are doing there job. My appointments have been moved to every 2 wks. Mostly for my own sanity. Amelia is starting to be very active certain times of the day mostly morning (when I want to sleep in) but I am so happy and grateful for every kick and movement. We have less than 12 weeks to go until we can meet our little girl.. I know that doesn't seem like that long but some days it feels like an eternity. But once again just taking things a week at a time and every time we get a good report from the Drs. I feel a bit better as well. I even managed to buy her a bathrobe and a little outfit w/ cherries on it. And I am thinking that next week it is time to pack up all the boy stuff and re access what we have. WHEW.... I feel really good this time BUT there is always that lingering doubt in the back of my mind. DH has started to talk about Amelia and all the things he is looking forward to doing with her. I want to go there but am afraid. But just for today I will be happy to be this far :D

they are going to test me for clotting and lupus, after 12 weeks post partum (i am 8 weeks now). i have read your story and definitely noticed how they figured that's what happened to your babies. i have written many questions for them based on your story. i wondered if my placenta would have shown clotting, or the cord. i have only so far been given results over the phone by a nurse, when i see the doc in person i will have many more questions. i am praying and hoping for you and baby amelia! you can make it! i know it will be VERY hard for you to switch back from boy to girl items... i cant imagine how hard if i have to take katie's girl stuff down for a brother. but it's ok... i just want one that cries next time!!! i will take a boy~!!!

That is fantastic news! You look fabulous! I love the name Amelia. It was on my list when I was pregnant with Ella.

You look so adorable! Rob is always talking about the future with our little boy too and it is still hard for me to go there as well. We're so close!

Well you are looking quite radiant these days.

I'm glad you have gotten good reports and Amelia is still kicking. It's just reassurance.

I look forward to seeing her in that cherry outfit :-)

It's heartwarming to see you this far along and to have good news from the doctors. Can't wait til Amelia is home, safe and sound.
