SLIUP

Single Live Intrauterine Pregnancy

Funny how the emphasis on certain words changes as you get older and your life/perspective changes.

The miracle of modern technology allowed us to see the teeny tiny flicker of heartbeat AND hear it.

Thank you all for your well wishes, prayers, and generally good mojo. We appreciate it.

We also appreciate all of your kindness in remembering Travis.

Bittersweet is a good word to describe today. I lasted until 8:19am before starting to cry.

But tonight...we are smiling tonight.

Girl, you make me wanna SLIUP, SLIUP-ee-doop, SLIUP-ee-doop-ee-doop-ee-doop, etc, with apologies to Salt 'n Pepa.

Congrats!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Having been in the hosp for 6.5 wks and unable to get into blogger, I'm a THRILLED to learn of your wonderful news. I've had 3 m/c's in addition to Emma's loss, so I know exactly how nerve wracking the first few u/s's are.

I know I'm late on saying "Thinking of you!", but please know that my thoughts are there. I cannot imagine surviving the death of a child twice. (HUGS)
