I am so, so excited to share that today's number of the day corresponds to...the number of children we have! Because we're having a baby!
I'm about 8 weeks pregnant. I had an ultrasound yesterday and got to see the sweet little baby, and the heartbeat pounding away. Everything looked good, though the baby was measuring small (interestingly so did Anna, and by about the same amount), and apparently I have a subchorionic hemorrhage. Bummer. Usually they resolve on their own without causing a problem, though sometimes not, so of course we're praying that everything will be fine. The doctor DID say she wouldn't expect the baby (SHE used the word "fetus", but I will say baby) to have such a good strong heartbeat if something was amiss, so that is good I guess.
So far this has been the easiest of my pregnancies, although I am SO TIRED and pretty emotional too. Thankfully I'm not sick, but the exhaustion and grouchiness are no picnic either. :)
Normally we wouldn't share our news until later (for various reasons that maybe I'll blog about later), but I am seriously showing (and gaining weight, ugh) already--as in by about 10 a.m., I look 7 months pregnant. And my mom, who must have radar when it comes to such things, was suspicious when she called yesterday only to have Kevin answer the phone and say I was at the doctor's. :)
Anyway, we're so excited about this latest blessing! Please pray with us for this sweet little one!
