I have plenty of blogging to catch up on, but it seems that when I am child-free all I want to do is snuggle up on the couch and snooze. Snoozing wins over blogging these days. I already got my morning nap in, so now I get a second to blog. I wanted to introduce everyone (or at least the few followers that might still check to see if I am blogging....) to our newest addition to the family!
It amazes me what is going on inside of me. There is a little baby in there. WITH a HEARTBEAT!!! It was amazing. God is so awesome and seeing how life is created awes me. I measured right on track and the heartrate was 172.
Yesterday was a crazy day for me (along with many other crazy days lately). I found out we were going and my nerves were just about to go crazy. We headed to the doctor and sat in the waiting room shaking. What were we going to see? No heartbeat? 1 heartbeat? 2 heartbeats??? My legs and arms were shaking as the technician started the ultrasound. AND, then we saw our baby. Michael was the first to see the little fluttering heartbeat. I melted. Cried and tried not to just sob out of joy.
This road has been hard. I know so many others that have been on this road and might still be on this road of not being able to experience what we did yesterday. I pray for you, know that. I feel your pain. I don't know why God has chosen to bless us in this way, we don't really deserve it. I know that God has a plan for each of His children though, and that plan is good. I know He loves each of His children and draws close to them and hurts with them.
Thank you Lord for our blessing. I pray that whatever amount of time we are given with this child will bring glory and honor to you. (And I pray that it will be a long time :)) But, I trust you through this (though I have to daily remind myself of that).
To God be the glory, great things HE has done.
