20 weeks pregnant

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

This week is a significant milestone in pregnancy...or is it?

20 weeks today. It's the half way mark.

It's also the time when everything changed for us before. The ultrasound indicated that my first pregnancy was not going to be the "perfect" pregnancy I had dreamed of. We learned our baby girl was in danger. What a strong and powerful feeling that was.

Today we slip into this 20th week of pregnancy with an ease and a tender remembrance of the time before.

A different story is being written for us this time.

Things are calm. So very calm.

I am still settling into that.

It's strange.

It's peaceful.

It's sweet.

I snuggle my Cayman close to me. She's such a big girl now. She sits next to me on the couch as we watch some more "Signing Times" together. My one arm wrapped around her, my other resting gently on my baby bump.

And I think to myself...

"I love these everyday miracles."
