Round 2...


Is going very well.


This picture was taken at 8 weeks, 2 days and I just heard my little kumquat's heartbeat again today at 13 weeks, 4 days.
It was good.
Due date, September 21st and WE. CAN'T. WAIT!!
Tyson has been imitating the little heartbeat sound we heard, and then grinning at me all afternoon. It's so cute.
Although I am so glad to be out of the 1st trimester and all the fear that comes with it (although I know that things could still go wrong at this point) I am still waiting for that cursed "morning" sickness to end.
Oh, why, you ask, is morning the only word in quotes?
Because I am not so sick in the morning. Just the whole rest of the day... and night... and anytime I smell onions... and whenever I'm tired... and if I've been at church too long. You know, "morning" sickness.
Anyway, now that I'm not keeping this MONUMENTAL secret anymore maybe I'll blog more often! Or maybe not, you never know.
And for those of you who are struggling with fertility, I am so sorry. There was a time when I cried every time I heard about someone new being pregnant because that was all I wanted. I wish the best for you and keep a prayer for you in my heart always.

  4. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! What a miracle, it is every time! Although, you have cursed yourself with a September baby b/c this summer could be miserable and you will find yourself constantly wearing the least amount of clothes possible, but it will all be worth it. I also hate all-day sickness; but again, it will all be so completely worth it. Anyway, I'm so excited for you and will pray that things stay healthy and normal!! Congratulations again!!

  24. I have to add my congrats to the list. I am super excited for the two of you. I was just thinking the other day how struggling with infertility and trying to get babies here helps you marvel at the miracle of a healthy baby or even just the miracle of finally getting pregnant. Unfortunately it doesn't work to get rid of the "morning" sickness. I look forward to future updates!
