Dream you’re mine

The journey from miscarriage to whatever comes next

Halfway point May 4, 2009

Yesterday, I hit the 20 week mark. Halfway. I wonder what it is like to have the weeks just tick by without all the memories from the previous losses? After going through 5 losses in 15 months, I just feel incredulous to actually be at this point and be able to feel the little guy moving around in there. I am awe-struck and just hope and pray this little guy will continue to grow and stay safe.

So in honor of this monumental event, here are photos of my belly progression. I was hoping to just gain 5 lbs during the first 20 weeks, but was up 7 yesterday. (I’m convinced at least one of those pounds is poop though!) Of course I want my baby to get all the nutrients he needs and to be healthy, but I pre-gained almost 20 lbs through the losses and started with a BMI in the overweight category with this pregnancy. So the medical advice is to gain 15-25 and I’m trying to manage to that.
