Blessed


They say a picture's worth a thousand words, right? :)

I'm so happy to (finally!) share the news that we're expecting a sweet little one in October! I got pregnant a mere TWO WEEKS after we lost our baby. I don't pretend to understand everything that happens in this life, and I feel incredibly humbled and blessed that God has given us the gift of this precious baby, especially in the midst of such loss. It is beyond comprehension.

I had an ultrasound last month, and got to hear the swish swish-y of the heart beating yesterday. We find out the sex at the end of May. Everything is going so well, and while the past few months have felt like a bit of an emotional rollercoaster--sadness, pure joy, processing through it all--I am THRILLED, positively THRILLED, to be on this journey. (Yes I know my stomach is huge, but the doctor assures me there's only one baby in there.)

Five kids...BRING IT ON!

So, you've been in your first trimester for nearly 6 months. That's a long time to feel yucky. I hope the next 6 months are easier on you. Congrats again!

YEA!! What sex is everyone rooting for? Do the girls want a girl or the boys a boy? By the way, your stomach looks adorable, not huge. I can't believe that team Heldt is going to have a majority winner soon!

Congratulations!

Hooray!

Mama Mote said...

Well, well. I don't know why, but everytime I read your blog, I somehow wondered if you were going to try to have another baby - or if you were already pregnant. Don't ask me why I was thinking that - maybe because your family is so adorable and I figured you would want more and could handle more. Strange, I know. Congratulations to you and Kevin. Say hi and congrats to him for me.

Sugar Plum said...
