Why is Life Cold?

i actually have a very happy life. i just saw this graphic one day and got an inspiration for another blog. why not write about the stuff that makes life cold? from the huge, catastrophic, life-altering events to the seemingly trivial, little incidents that rub you the wrong way. it doesn't have to be a personal experience, it can be something observed.

on writing these down, my intent is to learn to appreciate life more and have a better handle on things when life throws you a curve ball. i want whoever will read this to contemplate, not get depressed. hopefully, you'll share with me your experiences as well so we can learn from each other.

p.s. it doesn't always have to be cold

9 1/2 Weeks

I had a doctor's appointment today. My stepson was so excited about this - he woke up at six, took a shower, then woke us up to remind us that we're going to the doctor. Yep, he wanted to come with me to the doctor.

At the doctor's I went through the usual height, weight and blood pressure measurements, then waited in the examination room. The doctor arrives and asks me the usual questions, then begins to examine me.

She tries to look for a heartbeat but, after about five minutes of probing, couldn't find any. I can sense that she's starting to worry, and so is my husband. She asks me if I'm sure of my last day of menstrual period, and I said positive, but I am not regular. "That explains it," she says and excuses herself to get the ultrasound equipment.

After prodding me with the ultrasound wand, my husband and I get our first glimpse of our baby:

The second picture made us laugh because the baby was moving its tiny limbs like crazy. The doctor said it's happy in there. The doctor pointed to us a plus-like object in the middle that was flashing, and says "See? That's the heartbeat right there. Everything looks great!" I was speechless as I watched his/her heart beating away. When she measured the baby on the screen, it confirms what we thought - we miscalculated the age, the baby's younger than we thought.

I'm nine and a half weeks pregnant.

After the consultation we stepped out of the doctor's office to find my stepson with a sad face. He thought we were going to call him in so he can see if he'll have a baby brother or baby sister. I told him we won't know the gender for at least a couple more months. To cheer him up, I said he could help us name the baby once we do know. He had this wide smile on his face, but made us laugh when he said "okay, I'll wait until we see if the baby's white or brown, so I can give a fitting name."

We're being really careful and restrained, especially after the last time. I know that I'm not out of the woods yet, but I'm so happy I can't hold it in. I want to shout it out and celebrate this baby!

Please include us in your prayers.
