Today I Embrace My Pregnancy

When I talked to Dr. Sher’s nurse after our ultrasound last week I told her how worried I was about not seeing the baby for 3 weeks.  She asked if I wanted another ultrasound.  Who doesn’t want to look at their baby another time?  So, of course, I said “Really? Yes, please!” 

So here we are, 8 weeks pregnant and with more beautiful, fuzzy, black and white pictures of our little bubble.  It is measuring at exactly 1 week ahead of last week, 8 weeks 3 days.  The heart was clip clopping away at 167, which, from what I’ve read, is a perfect increase from last week also. 

Little 8 week old Hunter bubble, you can even see one arm and leg poking out!

I promised myself yesterday (after closing my 500th go.og.le search of miscarriage after seeing a heartbeat) that if everything looked good on today’s ultrasound that I would embrace this pregnancy.  Now here I am, with a perfect little one growing away and committed to my promise.

Here it goes:
  • I will not go.og.le miscarriage anymore
  • I will not stalk blogs about missed miscarriage
  • I will tell people I’m pregnant (except for work, I’m waiting until 10 or 12 weeks)
  • I will remember that there are no guarantees in life and that I am the luckiest girl alive to be pregnant at all!


  1. What a wonderful attitude, Lindsey! I'm so happy for you and your little bubble.

  2. hey there from TWW and ur new follower!! yay we can follow eachother! girl you sound JUST LIKE me about googling miscarriage stuff! Ahhhhhhhh I drove myself crazy! But look at us... we have two little beans! Wishing you soooooo much positive energy to you my dear! Lets TRY (key word) not to go too crazy with any little symptom or sign. We gotta embrace it!!! =)

  3. I love your attitude! I'm really trying to embrace my pregnancy too and just believe everything is okay in there. One more week til my NT scan so I'm sure that'll put my mind at ease and then I can start telling everyone, :). Let's keep being positive!

  4. There we go my friend! It's TIME to embrace this, enjoy it, and love that little one with everything you've got! He/She (meaning, he OR she... I promise I didn't just call your nugget a he-she!) is here to stay!

  5. Congratulations!
    Thanks for your comment. Sadly in the UK we do not have blood tests, we have to pee on sticks. Is so annoying!
