too slight to be felt.
I received the sweetest card last week, when I was still in my 10th week of pregnancy. It was from the same online friend who sent me that beautiful rose/baby bookmark, which I believe was the rose in answer to my novena for Gabriel (the baby I miscarried last November at 11 weeks, who was due this coming Saturday, June 13th). That little rose bookmark seemed to be the start of a month long “Shower of Roses” ending with this one on my calendar just minutes after I found out I was expecting this new little one. My children were so excited to see and touch the little pin which shows the exact size of a 10-week unborn baby’s feet. Thank you dear friend!!
I also had my monthly check-up today. It was such a relief to hear this little one’s heart beating strongly!! Even though I had an ultrasound a few weeks back, I’ve still been nervous to get through this first trimester… I’ll be 12 weeks this coming Saturday, and so far everything looks, and sounds, perfect!
Speaking of dates, since this was my first appointment with my doctor since my ultrasound, it seems that I was given the wrong due date from the ultrasound technician. My “official” due date is actually December 25th, Christmas Day instead of Christmas Eve! Not much difference, but there you have it. Looks like we will be counting the days till Christmas earlier than usual this year! 😉
