More on this wild pregnancy ride.....

We are thrilled to welcome a new baby. To be honest, I love being a mom. The smiles, the awe on her face with new things, the newly spoken words. To me nothing is better. I am afraid of how it will be with two? Praying for even more grace to get me through. But we are so ready.

This is my 5th pregnancy. Crazy right? After losing 3 precious babies we were so happy that this one decided to stick with us to become part of our family. It is so hard to lose babies, really one of the hardest things I have faced. My mother-in-law came for our specialist appointment last Thursday and brought the sweetest book. It was called "Heaven is for Real", it is how one special 3 year old saw heaven. In one chapter, it talked about how he meet his baby sister that his mom miscarried. (Crying was involved at this point. Happy crying!) She even told him she did not have a name because her mom and dad did not get to name her. She told her brother she could not wait until her mom and dad got there! Really?!? The little boy went on to tell his mom not to worry that God adopted her for now. This made me so very happy. To be honest, my negative side was wondering....did this little boy really go? Is this for real? But I am hoping so. What a joyous day when I have 3 kiddos who can't wait to see my face as I can't wait to see theirs!

This has been a hard pregnancy. There have been daily Lovenox injections involved to make sure my body does not clot the baby off. Scary stuff! I still, 13 weeks later dread those nightly shots. I keep hoping they would get better but not yet. I still cringe almost every night.
We had our appointment with the specialist last week and everything looked great. Baby T was dancing around having a great time. What a relief to know so far baby looks as healthy as can be. We were even told most likely what the baby is! Since only by 70% we are waiting to tell until we go back to him in 5 weeks.
Here we are at 12 weeks plus a few days.
We think God for this "Bun in the Oven" and pray many great blessings on its life.

More to come soon.
