We're having a baby.

I went to the doctor's office yesterday. I was 12 weeks and 5 days. And... it looks like we're having ... A BABY!!!

She was able to find the heartbeat with the Doppler pretty much right away. Our lil bean was pretty active in there, and was moving out of the way as soon as we found the heartbeat.

I cried tears of relief after leaving the office. I was, in fact, a blubbering idiot even when I phoned Mr. Legalosaur to tell him the good news. He thought something had gone wrong I was crying so hard.

When I saw him later in the day, I played him a sound recording I took of our baby's heartbeat. He grinned so wide, I thought he might break his face.

Ladies, for those of you who have gone (or are going) through a miscarriage, the emotional and physical aftermath is not easy. The subsequent TTC journey is not easy. The subsequent pregnancy is not easy. None of it is easy, because you cannot help but worry and wonder if it's going to happen to you again. But, chances are, a successful pregnancy will happen for you. There is hope. And really, after such a devastating loss, all you can hang on to is that hope.


  1. I'm hanging on as much as I can...although honestly, I'm starting to lose it a bit lately. :( I'm terrified that the first time was some kind of accident that will never happen again, and I'm terrified that it will and I'll have another miscarriage. I know you can understand that...

    And I'm so happy for you and Mr Legalosaur!

  2. Congratulations! That is awesome news!
