The Big Day.

Today we go in for our first ultrasound. I think I am officially six weeks along, but I won't know for sure until my appointment. I'm realizing that we may or may not hear a heartbeat and that may or may not be a bad thing (sometimes it's too early to hear it). We are still immersed in the "if's" and the reality that this pregnancy may not make it. But, I really believe that our chances are just as good that it will make it. I'm allowing myself to be excited, but when I stop and think about it, I realize I'm really, really nervous, too.

I think I just want to know. You know? I just want to make it to the appointment and go from there. But, really, things could always change, so I can't throw all of my hopes into this appointment, you know? There are always "if's" and questions ... we just have to acknowledge each day as a gift and live it accordingly.

I know I say that a lot. I think I need the frequent reminders. :)

So, friends, I'll update you as soon as I can. Here's hoping for a healthy Baby Baskins!


  1. well, the good news, is that your pregnancy symptoms are progressing.. you weren't sick last week, and now you are. morning sickness can be a very good sign. With all 5 of my miscarriages, the m/s stopped abruptly and didn't return.

    Can't wait to hear about your ultrasound!

  2. Looking forward to hearing about it! Good luck!!!


  3. I've been reading your blogs FOREVER and have finally decided to leave a comment! Thanks for your recent posts- my husband and I just went through our first pregnancy, which tragically ended in miscarriage. It's so wonderful to have a joyful example to read about, and to give me hope for the near future!

  4. Praying for a great first doctor's visit and good news!

  5. i don't remember how i stumbled on your blog, but i want to wish you many good thoughts today from the east coast! my little girls are 19 months apart and while it's challenging, it was a wonderful surprise blessing.
    here's to hoping it all goes according to plan :)

  6. Best of luck! This time for me has been full of anxiety. I'm not sure if it's because I know more this time around, but I worry all.the.time. Hearing that little heartbeat sets everything at ease. It's truly amazing.
