Today is my 30th birthday. Six years ago, when I turned 24, DH and I had been trying for baby 2 for four months and I was just sure that by the time I turned 25, we would have another child. Year after year has passed, but this year dear husband and I celebrated my birthday with fizzy lemonades rather than wine. Today I am 20 weeks and 5 days pregnant with a beautiful baby girl. For my birthday, my husband bought me new pandora beads, including the little girl and a baby booty. I have had a hard time since the loss of my twin, but feel so excited for the life still within me. I feel her kick and move more and more everyday. We spend a lot of time praying that this pregnancy will continue and they she will grow bigger and stronger every day.
I had a level two u/s with Ohio State Maternal Fetal Medicine at 17 weeks and all look good. The other baby is still there and visible, but does not seem to being posing a threat to our daughter. She has all of her pieces and parts and nothing extra.
