Mommy's Moment: And Baby Makes Five

Yes folks, we are pregnant. 9 1/2 weeks. It was a bumpy road to start but the Lord has blessed us with what looks to be, thus far, a healthy baby. Little squirt should arrive around October 23rd...so the doctors say. We have had FOUR, yes FOUR, ultrasounds due to some minor complications. But, the last three I have seen the sweet comfort of a rapidly beating heart. Though we're never "out of the woods" I can rest peacefully in knowing that NOW, at this moment, we have a healthy child. So we are excited. Hannah is convinced it is a girl. She already has offered to get her "little sister" a very small pair of Crocs, to hold her, to let her sleep in her bed, to feed her, and to let her wear a large array of her clothes. Needless to say, she is highly anticipating "her" arrival. Should it be a boy? Well, we've tried to prep her for that possibility, to which she often replies, "no, she's a gurl." Oh well. We'll take it a day at a time. For now, I am simply grateful for this little life inside of me. And, I try to remind myself through the tiredness, nausea, and headaches, that these are all healthy signs of a normal pregnancy and for that I should be thankful. So, here we go again....

I'm so THRILLED to hear this Jess! I've been thinking about you a lot lately, and this must be why!! Praying for a healthy baby!

Yay, Jess! I had a feeling you were pregnant when you said in Hannah's post that you were feeling under the weather! A woman's intuition, I guess!

Hope the nausea and all that goes with first trimester passes quickly.

Thanks everyone. Jason, yes, we are. My first due date was the 20th. I was dying to tell Tiff but needed to make sure all was well before I could officially say anything.

Congrats again! We're so excited for you. It will be wonderful to have cousins so close in age!

Ask Hannah what she thinks we're having. :) We have our ultrasound on the 14th, so we can tell her if she's right! :)
