In June, we went in for our first OB visit, and saw a blank screen… (If you missed our miscarriage story, you can read it here.)
This past week, we were blessed to see a tiny beating heart!
This baby is just over a centimeter long, and yet I watched its tiny heart pumping. Amazing.
“For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.”
Psalm 139: 13-14
We are all very excited to watch our family expand from 4 to 5! Jonathan is going to be a GREAT big brother. He is currently super into babies – both real babies and dolls!
I might not be posting quite as often on here… we’ll see! This pregnancy has hit pretty hard with the worst morning sickness I’ve ever experienced. But, I still have four boys who need to be busy, so it’s not like life slows down much around here! I’ve been coping by having them do a little less official schoolwork and a little more reading. Now that the weather is finally cooling down, we can get outside more, which will really help. And I have an amazing husband who has been doing the grocery shopping, grading math lessons, and washing most of the dishes!
