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!

That is great news, Carmen! When we talked earlier this month, I was sure hoping you would be pregnant soon - and you already were. I can understand you're waiting to tell. I will be praying for you - for a healthy pregnancy. See you in a few weeks.
