    17 Weeks!

    We've made it to 17 weeks today

    I feel a little comfort but I'm sad to admit that there is still a piece of me which won't fully surrender myself to the thought that everything will be ok and we will get to hold our babe in 23 weeks time.

    Its a sad feeling and whilst it doesnt consume me, I envy the days where the thought of losing a babe would never enter my mind.

    I'm still happy though and am enjoying the reassuring kicks and swirls from the little person growing inside me.

    Congratulations Sara, we'll always remember Reid but I'm glad you're happy and finding some reassurance from this baby! I think once you've experienced loss it's never truly gone from your mind, but I hope your baby kicks you whenever you have a bad thought to remind you that they are there and they are on their way.

    Congratualtions on reaching 17 weeks! It's like you can almost breathe a little bit easier now?? I remember feeling relief when DD was born - she came out screaming and I was truly grateful for that! 23 weeks will fly by & i hope you can continue to relax and enjoy your pg a little more now.

    I have been wondering about you in the last 2 weeks

    A big milestone has been passed, but you'll always always have baby Reid in your heart and mind even as this new little person rolls and swirls like nobodies business and it must be tough at times

    Wow Sara! 17weeks is amazing. Dd3 pregnancy was extremely hard to 'attach' too. You are not alone. And it doesn't mean you won't live this baby when it's born. It just means that Reid is right there with you every step of the way!!
