Five weeks today.
We had an ultrasound this morning (it's early, I know), but because of my history my doctor deemed it necessary.
And there it was, a tiny little thing...a perfect little home for our baby. A sac measuring right along with our timeline and sitting in a perfect spot in my uterus. Praise God.
We are ecstatic and overjoyed and nervous and afraid and overall, just a little bit crazy.
I've gone back and forth about whether or not I'd post our news this early, but seriously friends, I need your prayers. I would love for you all (my wonderful blogging buddies) to be involved in this new baby's life, just as you've been involved in our journey thus far.
We are celebrating our little May baby's life each day, enjoying this sweet time with such a wonderful miracle. But seriously, I'm struggling not to wish the days away until May.
We need your prayers. We do believe that our Father has lovingly numbered this little one's days already, and yet we still pray for as many days with him/her on this Earth. We would love to bring this baby home to raise and watch grow up, to do all things we long to do with our children.
We are praying for comfort and rest in this time of, what's that, yes- more waiting. If my calculations are correct, then we are in week 5, which means we have 32 weeks until sweet May baby is born. I really don't want to wish away these precious pregnant days, but I don't have to tell you that pregnancy no longer holds the innocence and naivety that it once held. Frankly, I'm scared.
I want to be all bliss and joy, but there is so much worry and fear.
Please pray that we'll rest in our Father's loving arms and listen to no other voice but His alone.
I'm sorry to spring the news in such a vague way, but I really didn't know what I was going to do, and then the words just popped out.
That's a pregnant brain for you.
