It's Real

Arabella is getting stronger, I sit here on the couch typing this and she is kicking the crap out of me and I love every second of it. Tomorrow we will officially hit viability. I dreamed of feeling kicks again for 6 long years. I though that dream was never going to come true, so many losses stole it away.

So far, all of our other tests and ultrasounds are looking good. She is active and responsive. We finally got the shot we have been trying to of her spine and it showed "no noticeable defects" which is fantastic news.

My house is filling up with little pink outfits and blankets. Neil and I stare at our closet in wonder. PINK, it's a girl and she is growing more by the day. In about three months will go from a family of five to a family of six and will finally be complete.
