In case she forgets to blog it; here are the cues; package store with the kids, then walks an empty double stroller home.

The Happiness Project

I mentioned it in an earlier post but I FINALLY bought the book that was recommended by some classmates in my Abnormal Psych class a few months ago. I waited till I racked up $15 in Borders bucks, THEN I amazingly had a 33% off coupon in my gmail inbox that I could use and to my "happy" disbelief I got the $26 book for $2.43. Not a bad way to start my Happiness Project off if I do say so myself. Off to purge the closets and get rid of all of these extra PILES AND PILES of clothes around the house and then dinner, kids in bed, and I'm diving into my book!

What is that I see????

Here is a little of the situation that has been playing out over the last fourteen days....I was late, got BFP, went to doc, got BFP there too, went to ultrasound the next day for dating to figure out how far along I am only to discover that there was a gestational sac but NO BABY growing in my uterus. Something they diagnosed as a Blighted Ovum. Sad, cry, move forward, make doctors appointment for Wednesday May 12th to do follow up.

So.... I went to the doctors on the 12th to do a confirmation ultrasound basically to figure out at what stage in my miscarriage I was in, whether I needed a D&C and/or if my body had already started the process and no medical intervention would be necessary. To the entire office's and my own disbelief there on the screen appeared a little peanut....with a heartbeat. The office is calling it the "miracle baby" since it was confirmed quite a few times that there was no baby growing last week BUT this week....there is a perfectly healthy 8 week old baby out of nowhere. They said it was now safe to spread the word and let family know since a strong healthy heartbeat was established multiple times.

I now present you with Bambino Numero three....The third (and unplanned) addition to the Norman Family.
