finally, i feel like we can finally breathe....

we just returned home from our fetal echo cardiogram AND the bean has a perfectly normal heart. i can not even begin to tell you how relieved we are. this was the big hurdle. i can now start to get excited about the bean's arrival in february.

we are going to have another fetal echo at 28 weeks, but that is just for peace of mind. the bean's heart is currently the size of your thumb nail, which is pretty darn small, so the cardiologist likes to take another look when the heart is a little bigger. if there was anything major wrong with the heart it would have shown up today.

thank you for all your well wishes and good thoughts today, its what got us through...

and now on to shopping, knitting and sewing for the bean!


  1. Hoorah! Still thinking of you.

  2. I'm so happy for you and Jamey - and for all your (our) extended family
    who love you. Knit away!!


  3. Yea!!! I'm sure you are both relieved, as are all of us. Take a deep breath & enjoy it!

    Vanessa, Matt & Gus

  4. ***exhale.**** Thank you. I've been waiting for this news all day so I could finally do that! Plus, it's been really hard trying to type with my fingers crossed! : )

    Congrats. Congrats.

    Doesn't even sum it up.


  5. Oh, I can't tell you how happy and relieved I am for you all!! Justrevel in all the joy that c arrying and preparing for a baby can be. And we'll be cheering you on. Just remember, when you are so big you can't see your feet, we can't help....you're on your own. (Smile face)

  6. You don't know me, but I follow your blog and feel as though I do know you. And I sent a bird for Cooper's flock last year - and have been following your journey of healing. I am so happy to hear this news. I just know that Cooper's little brother will be healthy and that you'll be blessed again. I hope you can relax and enjoy your pregnancy.

  11. Lucinda, I tried to comment and then something happened so maybe I'm commenting twice - if so, just chalk it up to my lack of technical expertise... Congratulations on the wonderful test results! If you want to do some sewing, please let me know ;)
