Here we are...
So, here we are. 16 weeks... Robert and Maya are now gestationally older than their big brother, Nicholas.
Yesterday, other than the sorrow, anxiety, and soreness from the vag u/s wand, was pretty uneventful. I cried a lot and snuggled with their blanket. When Peter came home, he just curled up with me and we remembered and held. He made Nick's dinner and, at 7:45, we just let the world sink away while we shared memories from his birth and life. At 8:45... when he journeyed on to his eternal life... we said a special prayer and had his meal. A hard night. But we cant remember without smiling through our tears.
And so, now we are here.
I remember this milestone with Alexander. The worry and then the sort of calm, the "we made it this far so we'll be fine." If only... We are now a week away from his gestational birth, on day 106 of pregnancy. Next Saturday... 7 short (long) days away...
Thank you all for abiding with us during this time. For your understanding, prayers, and support. It is so very appreciated.
