I'll post an update in just a few minutes (everything's good!), but I wanted to post separately for this.

Today I'm a little melancholy. Very happy to be pregnant, but missing Baby #1. Today was my original due date. Until now, the date's been in the back of my mind as a day that probably wouldn't be easy for me, but now it's here. All I can think about is that today I should be visiting with the midwives for my 40 week appointment. Maybe having an NST or an ultrasound to make sure baby's doing fine. Probably starting at-home techniques to put myself into labor and trying hard to enjoy the last few days of my pregnancy.

Instead, today we're remembering our first baby while going about our lives. We're thankful that our take-home baby will be here soon--but that doesn't make us miss our first baby any less.

I just wanted to send you a virtual hug.

I'm coming up on my original due date as well (next month) and I completely understand your feelings. Being pregnant again doesn't mean it hurts any less to have lost the first baby.

Take care.
