Project Poblano: Right on Track!


Well......ladies and gentlemen......we have ONE. ONE perfect, lovely, incredible, amazing, beautiful, wonderful BABY!!!

We have decided, contrary to our poll results ("Bell" was the winner by one vote) that this little one feels like a "Poblano"....so we're going with it. And today, at 6weeks 3days old, our Poblano is right on track, measuring just about 5mm long and with a heartbeat (gasp! a heartbeat!) of 109. I started crying as I watched the teeniest tiniest heart I could ever imagine work away inside of me so perfectly. I am so proud of our little one. What a miracle.

Thanks to everyone for praying, for wishing, for thinking of us, for holding our hands, for voting on silly polls, and for supporting us. We are truly aware of how utterly blessed we are. We really feel like celebrating now......so here we go!!!!

A word of warning: I have a 7-year old Poblano. If the name predicts the sass, you may want to reconsider Bell!

What a satisfying post.

Thanks for the great comment. You managed to express stuff that has just kind of been hovering around the margins but I haven't been able to identify. You're right that it does make me feel more alive, more in tune. And also that feeling of real hope - it's not just a theoretical thing anymore. I really could be pregnant right now. And I think I'd like to enjoy this as long as I can. So I'm going to try not to test. I might test before going in for my bloodwork next weekend because I don't know how long it will take them to get results, but I'm going to try to hold out until then.

Of course, I could change my mind at any time. But I've already kind of thought of this cycle as a freebie, a test run. So if it's negative, I'll be disappointed. But I think I'll still be ok.

Thanks as always for your wonderful words. You're such a gift to me!

Absolutely beautiful. I am in awe at your ultrasound and so happy for you. I hope you continue to celebrate until your Poblano is in your arms. And since I am behind on commenting your letters to your pepper show you will be an amazing mother. You are one already!
