Exciting News!!! March 10, 2010

Yep, it’s true.  I’m preggo again.  I measured at 6.1 wks.  I was a bit nervous…okay, I was a nervous WRECK today…especially when we were waiting on getting the ultrasound.  We’ve known for a couple of weeks that I was pregnant, but we wanted to wait to tell people until after we saw the heartbeat.  So, two hours later…we saw it.  The little thump, thump, thump.  I think it’s a boy.  His rate was on the lower end of normal.  It was 128 bpm. 

So far this has been a totally different pregnancy than with Zoë.  I haven’t been anywhere near as sick as I was with Zoë.  While some may be thankful for this, I’m not.  I actually “enjoyed” spending time at the toilet.  It gave me the feeling that I was in control.  Well, let’s just say that God’s like “Oh, you’re in control, huh?  Let’s just see about that.”  So, I’m really having to learn how to trust Him with this.  I’ve been waaaay more tired this time, though.  I haven’t had too terribly many food aversions yet, though there are a few.  I have been really hungry. 

Anyway, for those of you that actually read my blog, you know that this is a scary time for us.  We lost Keelan when he was around 6 weeks.  We didn’t see a heartbeat with Zoë at 5 weeks (which I was further along, and they argued with me saying I wasn’t), so we had to wait a long agonizing week…but at the next appt she was measuring much bigger with a very strong heartbeat.  So, with this one…it was a miracle in and of itself to have a fairly normal first prenatal appt.  I look forward to getting past the first trimester.  But, I know that I serve a Good God.  I know that He does whatever is best for me and those around me.  Just pray that I will have a peace and even though I may fight it tooth and nail…that I will learn to fully rely on Him and Trust Him.

One more random comment about this….I must say it was very weird planning to have a kid.  The first two definitely weren’t planned really.  We fully expected to get pregnant right away.  Well, here we are 7 months later and pregnant.  I’m not complaining that it took that long (trust me, I would NEVER complain about this part)…it was just weird and different than we expected.

Okay, I’m off to bed now.  I’ve got to get up super early to go to work.
