about the piece.
Beth talks about her piece, "I did the ultrasound painting the night before my first ultrasound with my 3rd child. I was a nervous wreck, so I painted what I wanted to see. In the corner, I wrote 118, which is what I wanted the heart rate to be: over 100. My first ultrasound with my second child, who I later miscarried, was only 84, which is way too low. I grieve so deeply the idea that she never even had a chance. It's such conflicting emotions: I couldn't have this 3rd baby if I was still carrying the second. I want them all. The next day, the heart rate was 108. I was close!"
