We've Drafted a New Player


While I've been absent from the blog the above was only a small part. Truth is I've been sick with a cold and this horrible congestion. I was taking some medicine that was working somewhat until I discovered those two pink lines and stopped because I'm not about to take something that is unsure of being safe--especially in the first trimester. 


We're very early, but we've been to the doctor and originally had our ultrasound scheduled for today, but are pushing it back until next week by choice to be a little further along to see a heartbeat.

Today we're 5 weeks, 1 day.

I'm realistic in that I'm a 39 year old woman who will be 40 next month and coupled with my pre-eclampsia with Lily---anything can happen.

We are proceeding happily and do feel very positive that come October we will be holding our baby! And that is ultimately where we are.

After our miscarriage in 2009, and some of the complications with our pregnancy with Lily in 2010, George and I  feel that sharing our news early can only lead to more love, support, and prayers.  That is more important to us than the unspoken pressure to wait until 12 weeks to announce, for if something should happen, then we'll have that much more love, support, and prayer around us.

We're excited and having a baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

More details to I told G, what the older kids had to say and Lily's funny stuff. :)
