Our first look

We will be having our first ultrasound on Wednesday, March 5. We will try to scan the picture on the computer, so everyone can see. Of course, the early ultrasounds can be hard to make out, but we will try. Please pray for Baby H as we prepare to enter the second trimester. Check back on Wednesday for pics!

"Bum Bum Bump, It's where the Heart is"

A quote from one of my favorite movies, Where the heart is, is the title that came to mind for this post. We were able to hear the heartbeat today. I cried. It was the most beautiful sound ever.....Oh it was just hard to describe..after waiting, wishing, hoping for 7 years. I know some wait longer but it was a rough road. God is just so good. I have learned so much through the process but am speechless as to why God gave us this gift. WE are so underserving, yet I feel so special. I feel like this is no doubt a concrete miracle in our lives.

To all of our faithful readers

Please keep us in prayer as we go for our 10 week appt on Thursday. I have been quite anxious about it b/c this is the appt where the Dr. will listen for the heartbeat. I have been told that most parents to be do not hear the heartbeat this early and some end up getting ultrasounds b/c of this. After all we have been through, it worries me to think of not hearing the heartbeat. I do feel, however, that God is delivering me from this fear and I am beginning to think positively and am getting excited. Please keep us and Baby H in your prayers this week and of course we will update you on Thursday!

Our 8 week appointment

We had our 8 week appt today. Other than lots of information, 100 reasons to be afraid, and some necessary bloodwork/labs, there wasn't much to hip hooray about. After hearing all of the things you need to avoid and all the genetic things that COULD go wrong, I told Brian, "yes, you COULD go outside and get hit by a car, so make sure you look both ways before crossing the street!"

Good lord things have really changed since my last pregnancy!! They didn't tell me any of these things. There is a lot to worry about if you choose to. My prayer is that I/we will enjoy each stage of the pregnancy and not worry about every little thing. It is hard and as a parent is never ending. Once they are born, that fear only continues and gets worse. So, we just have to make a conscious choice not to live in fear.

So, that is the update for now. We go back in two weeks. Right now, the date of birth would be September 13, 2008....(the due date is the 20th but with the C-section, it would be 9/13....Please continue to keep us and Baby H in your prayers. God truly has been miraculous in this situation.
