Don't Count My Chickens

Today had a slightly sad twinge to it. Next ultrasound reveals we should apparently now only expect one child-to-be. The other one is ... well ... not there. It's not unheard of, but still, the thought of having twins to term is basically off the table. It's still early so there are decreased risks with a single pregnancy, but it's still somewhat of a letdown. So as some people might say, "Beta was a ninja." That's going to be my stock quote as people get informed of the change in plans. Not much else I can say about that. My wife is better now, but hopefully she won't mind me pulling the "mother hen" trick and keeping a close eye on her anyway.

And I can't skip pointing out the baby we DO have is feisty. My wife can't feel it, but he or she is definitely alive and almost kicking. The hands were plenty fidgety even if the feet weren't moving much yet. So it's a mixed results kind of thing and not all gloomy.

All in all, we're not doing much tonight besides picking up my cell phone (yes, I lost it again) and having dinner. I'd had some other things to post, but you know me, easily distracted and all.

And this Kevin Max guy I've been tipped off to tune in to, he's pretty good. I dig the tracks I'm hearing on this mix CD I've been given.

Lots of hugs and love to you both. I would like to send some mother-henning myself - to both of you. You two and your little one are in my prayers. :)

I was/am sorry to hear about what happened. *hug*

But I am ecstatic that the baby is so healthy! :)

Man, that sucks. I guess you have to look at it as a "it'll make things less complicated", but I'm sure that is easier said than done. Either way, whatever you need, we are here for!

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. On the other hand, I must commend you for your quick refocus on what's really important...Your other baby is fine, and so is your wife. I find that a dose of perspective is often helpful when feeling bad about your lot in life, so realizing that you all have your health and each other where others do not, can perhaps make you feel better. But, if there's anything I can do on an emotional or comfort level (casserole? Hugs? Protection spell for you and yours?) please feel free to ask anytime!

Love,

e
