The Next Big Adventure~

What you are looking at is a picture of , as Jason put it, our family's next big adventure.  Yes, this is a picture of baby number 2 in utero at 12 weeks and 3 days with its little hand up near its face.  Amazing isn't it?!

It was such a relief to hear the baby's heartbeat yesterday and see that the baby is thriving and doing well.  I felt like I was in a holding pattern with this pregnancy due to the fact that the last two have not been viable.  I didn't want to get too excited for obvious reasons.  Now that we have made it to this point, I feel like I can breathe a sigh of relief and let go into the experience.  The risk of a miscarriage at 12 weeks with the baby being healthy is only 1 or 2% .  The statistics are nice to read but the good feeling I have inside is an even better indicator of this being a happy, healthy pregnancy.  

It is so nice to actually be able to enjoy this experience now instead of feeling I am waiting to do so.  In about 6 weeks or so we will get to find out whether this little bean is a boy or a girl.  My feeling is that it is a girl.  I say this because I keep calling it a "she".  I haven't had any dreams during this pregnancy yet.  However,  I did have a dream during my last pregnancy of a little girl with lots of dark brown hair and big brown eyes.  She was a happy baby in my dream.   I will be sure to share any dreams I have of this little one.  So far my dreams are just plain weird.  

All in all, I feel good.  Jason is back home from Costa Rica and things have slowed down, which is a nice change.  It is hard to believe that the holidays are here and the end of the year is near. I have much to reflect on over this past year as it seems a lot has happened.  2010 has been a wild ride and not an easy one.  To be honest,  I am ready to say so long to this year and open myself up to what is next to come. 

So here I am making the most of the moment, welcoming our next big adventure, and loving every minute of it all.

Peace Out,


  1. Marcia!!!!
    I was hoping when I saw the first "excited" FB post that this might be what it was! I am so happy for you as I know how difficult this last year has been for you all!
    I hope for nothing more than a fabulous experience this time around full of love, joy, and excitement. Have fun with the holidays coming up and try to enjoy this new adventure you are on.
    Sending you much love and warm, tickly belly hugs! ;)
