Happy Mother's Day

In the past this day has been really hard to get through. I'd dread it for weeks before. Today, we celebrated with anticipation of what's to come. It was great to not cry and fight back tears at church and to be wished Happy Mother's Day by the people at Sam's (yes, we went again today, like it's some sort of tradition) and not feel like a fraud.

Josh gave me the Willow Tree wood figurine of an expectant mom and a sweet card. We have not forgotten how blessed we are or those who today are still hurting and longing for children.

I am 13 weeks along now and have an appointment on Thursday for an NT scan and to check my cervix. Moving right along!

Happy Mother's day mama! My day was a little similar. I didn't go to Sam's (I'm on couch arrest again), but I did have some carrot cake from Sam's -does that count? My husband gave me the willow tree expecting mom too! We must have good hubbies. I'm glad everything is going well, and can't wait to see a picture of the little one on Thursday. I hope you're feeling okay and it sounds like everything is going well. 13 weeks? Look at you go, mama!
