Our baby has a growing brain.  Hands and feet.  Individual fingers and toes.   John Elway baby wiggled his arms and hands in a little dance.

And I sobbed.

I don't cry at the bad ultrasounds, just the good ones.

With each week, I grow more confident.  But with each week I also grow more attached to a baby I know could still have fatal problems.

But my heart is happy because I know, at least for today, that a little baby is dancing inside me.

7 These posts make a lump in my throat and I tear up every time. Life is such a beautiful, amazing and fragile thing.
May God continue to bless your life and this little one He has given you.
Praying for you daily!

8 My tears joined yours and the others. Prayers too. And just for the record, I joined little John Elway in the happy dance.  Big hugs.

9 Tears in my eyes. Lump in my throat. Who knew one could get so attached to a stranger's baby? I am so happy for you, your husband, and that little one.

10 I'm an army wife, mom (who lived through a Mothers Day miscarriage 2 yrs ago) and a long time lurker who has followed your blog for a few years now...I cant put into words how happy I am for you today, I have happy tears, goose bumps. I will continue praying for you and your family. You are my "imaginary" hero.

11 Checked yesterday to see what the "kanga baby' update was and realized I was a day early.  I was so glad to read today's post.  Another longtime reader and sometimes delurker.

14 Yay for the John Elway baby.  Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

How many weeks are you?  I, too, have nothing but good and hopeful things on my brain (which is probably about the same size as John/Johnna Elway's!)....

I'm so very very happy!  Every time you post I have a knot in my stomach as I read, hoping there is no word of bad baby news.  It seems a little ridiculous that I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high for someone else's baby, but I know how it can go.

Grow baby, Grow!

Its been a while since ive checked your blog and when i do WOW do i get a suprise. I was so excited about your wonderful news. You are all in my prayers and thoughts. I cant imagine how odd it must feel to have strangers getting all excited about you and bubs.

22 yet another faithful reader/occasional delurker coming out to say how very much my heart soared to read this news. . . . and how very much I hope and pray that all continues to go well with the wee one. . . . Semper Fi!

That is so exciting.  Can they give you a video of the ultrasound that you can send to the Mr.?  Are you going to have a CVS test?  I don't know if its indicated in your case, I was just impertinently curious.

I'm so happy for you.

24 Oh Sarah!     

Posted by: dutchgirl at August 06, 2009 02:51 PM (hLAkQ)

25 Glad to hear everything went well at the scan.  I will continue to think good thoughts for you.  Grow John Elway, grow!
