Thursday was a big day for me! Not only was it my six week mark, but I had my first ultrasound. We were able to see our precious little jelly bean! One perfect baby! We were even able to hear the heartbeat. Mom and K were both there, and we shed lots of happy tears. I couldn't take my eyes off of the ultrasound screen. It was by far the best day of my life, and I am so grateful to the Lord for bringing me here. I never thought this would happen to me, and I'm doing my best to savor each and every moment. It's hard sometimes, and fear so easily slips in. I know that our struggle has tainted me to a point. That fact makes me angry. I know the next coming months that are normally joyous and exciting for most pregnant women will be largely consumed with fret and worry for me. I'm being pro-active against this fret and worry though, and I'm determined to not allow it to take over and rob me. As an act of faith, I made my pregnancy public on Facebook this week. It was a blessing to have so many encouraging comments! Just knowing that we've had so many people praying for us and this miracle makes my heart full.
This week will be another milestone week. We're going to Dallas this Wednesday for our second ultrasound to make sure our sweet jelly bean is growing, growing, growing! I can't wait to hear that heartbeat again. And it will be nice to see everyone at the clinic. I miss them!
