This particular post doesn’t have anything to do with saving money. Just about having a baby. I am actually really letting myself realize that we are having a baby. Many mothers have the common concern of losing their baby. And the fact is that miscarriage is far more common than any of us would like to admit.

We have reached a milestone in our pregnancy. No I haven’t felt the baby moving, no I am not showing to the point that anyone (besides my husband and my too tight jeans) would notice. I actually haven’t even been to the doctor yet (that comes tomorrow). I know that we are not “out of the woods” yet. But I am feeling more confident. The statistics say that when you reach 8 weeks your odds of a miscarriage drop to 5%. After having a miscarriage several months ago at 5 1/2 weeks, those statistics are reassuring.

After one … not so amazing… visit with my family doc, my husband and I are visiting an OB tomorrow. Not quite sure what to expect, but I am going armed with questions, note taking devices and information about what my insurance will cover when. So here is praying that more reassurance will be coming tomorrow.
