The gig's up
Sareny drew this sweet little picture almost two years ago when she was in kindergarten, right before my first miscarriage (which explains why she drew Finley bald.) I have been saving it all this time to make the big news public, so here we go.
After 2 years, 2 miscarriages, lots of clomid, and 1 surgery we are expecting again. Despite the fact that I am only 8 1/2 weeks along, I am feeling pretty good about things this go round. I've already had 3 dr. appointments, 2 blood draws, and 3 ultrasounds. That's a lot of numbers for one paragraph! The most recent ultrasound showed the baby's heartbeat, which almost always indicates a strong, viable pregnancy. (I never saw a heartbeat with the two that I lost.) I remember when I was pregnant with Sareny my mom asked me if I got teary when we saw the heartbeat for the first time, and I totally didn't. I never felt emotional at that point with any of my three kids. But I gotta tell you, I did this time, my friends.
So the chance is still there that things won't go as planned, but for now, I wanted to share our happy news with you. I would rather my friends be there with me on the journey.
