6 Weeks!

Hello friends!

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!


  1. SO HAPPY you saw your little bean, as I remember that moment so well. I was excited, yet guarded. Its sad that we are robbed of the "normal" pregnancy bliss, but that just goes with the territory. You'll become more at ease as time goes along, but fear will be present...just take things minute by sweet minute :)

    Much love, prayers and hugs...and a sweet, sweet journey with friends at your side cheering you on!


  2. Yea!!! You know I'm so thrilled and can't wait to hear about your visit this week too! You can tell them hello for us and should be able to update about our miracle girl too!! I'll try to text you a pic too! :)

    Can't wait to continue with you on this journey and see your sweet angel baby in 34 weeks!!!!!! Praise God!

  3. Amy, check my FB wall. I am going to post a link to our sermon last night. I think you will be super blessed! Angie
