Our Big News

Ultrasound #1

Ultrasound #1

Ultrasound #1

I'm pregnant again!  We had our eight week ultrasound yesterday, and since Baby looks good with a heart rate of 174, I can't help sharing.  Primarily because we want lots of prayer -- for Baby's health, and that I can navigate this pregnancy after a loss with faith, hope, and peace.  I feel very nervous sharing this big news so early, but I want whoever wants to pray to be praying, so that is why I'm sharing the news so early.

And really, I want to celebrate.  No matter what happens, this baby is alive now.  He (yes, I think it's a boy!) is not a thing, not a fetus, but a human being.  This baby is a gift from God.  This is life.  And I want to celebrate that gift, that life.  Even though our first baby died.  Especially because our first baby died.

Will you pray and celebrate with us?  I'd be honored to share this journey with you, dear blog friends.

"At that time, people will say, 'Look at what's happened! This is our God! We waited for him and he showed up and saved us! This God, the one we waited for! Let's celebrate, sing the joys of his salvation. God's hand rests on this mountain!'"

~ Isaiah 25:9-10

  18. hehe thanks, Hannah! it feels very special sharing the news with other BLMs, because they KNOW. and I LOVE hearing about this kind of news from other BLMs, because it is even more hopeful than non-rainbow pregnancies, in my opinion. if we have to be walking this road of babyloss, I'm glad we can all do it together. that community is so important.
