Writing this post has been one of the hardest things I've done in awhile. Every time I want to write it, fear holds me back. But here I am, defeating the fear and telling the world that we are pregnant! Why was I so afraid to publish this post? I don't really know, other than the fact that we recently suffered two miscarriages. But even that seems like a silly reason not to let others share in this joy and hope with us. And what's the worse that can happen? Do I really think that the sting of loss would be any less with fewer people knowing? Certainly not! It would only be more lonely. So here we go! I'm eight weeks, two days along, due Sept. 15th 2008! The morning sickness, or I should say all-day sickness, has been a little worse this time than I remember with the girls, but I'll take any symptom that gives me a little reassurance that all is well. We've already had an early ultrasound and were able to see a heartbeat, which also gave us a little more hope. I have my first official appointment on the 13th, at which point we'll schedule another ultrasound just for peace of mind. Here's a picture of our little one at 6 weeks. It doesn't look like a baby, just a little white mass inside a dark sac, but you get the idea. Thanks for letting us share this with you and we ask that you would pray with us for a healthy, uneventful pregnancy. We are pretty positive that three children feels complete for our family, so I'm really trying to treasure this "last" pregnancy in every way that I can. God is good, and we are daily leaning on Him, giving Him our fears and anxieties, knowing that He has purpose for this little life inside me. Girl or Boy, we feel so blessed by this baby!
