It's time for an announcement!
Yes, it's true! It's time to tell everybody our good news. I know I am a little late in letting you in on the secret, but given my recent history with back-to-back miscarriages, I am still very cautious. I had a couple of scares with this little one already, but yesterday, Paul and I went for our first ultrasound and I was put at ease by seeing our little one. The baby is already very busy moving around. (There's a lot of leg kicking already.) I've never had an ultrasound this early (11 weeks and a few days) before, but like I said, we've had a few scares and I am still feeling anxious. Having this early ultrasound has helped me to calm down. When I had my boys, I never gave my pregnancies much thought at all aside from all the normal complaints. They developed like they were supposed to and my pregnancies were very routine. I know that I took those experiences for-granted. Now, I am in even more awe of the miracle of life. (The ultrasound image isn't mine. It's one I found on the internet that's measuring 11 weeks.) I have our first ultrasound pictures on the fridge. Baby is expected around November 30. Please keep us in your prayers. I'm going to borrow the ticker I saw on Elizabeth's blog so we can track the baby's development. Check out the sidebar. We are overflowing with joy!
