Brighter days and babies

We survived yesterday coming out on the other end with a few puffy eyes and a whole lot of showers. Showers are the only thing I can do in this house that no one will bother me. I take a lot of showers.
I won’t go in to more detail about our day. It ended with me crying – but it started that way too. So it was emotional and very tiring and I have the best husband in the world who gets how hard this is some times.
Today is a bright new day and I thank the Lord for new beginnings because often thats just what we need. Already today is less emotional, more relaxed and on it’s way to matching the beautiful sunshine outside.
But in other news – yesterday was also the day we had an ultrasound. We kept this one a secret in hopes of getting the news of “boy” or “girl” and then having a few days to relish in this news before we made the announcement. The Lakeshore Pregnancy Center in town is training their nurses to give ultrasounds to all positive pregnancy test results that come through their doors. They needed volunteers for the nurses to give ultrasounds to so they could get their alloted amount of time under the supervision of a licensed sonographer in order to do them solo on patients.
We signed up! We were hoping this could take the place of the one we’ll have to pay for at the doctors office – we made sure with the receptionist that this was a thorough ultrasound and asked specifically if we’d get the measurements our doctor would need in order for us to pass on their ultrasound. We were told that, yes, this was going to happen. Unfortunately – there wasn’t great communication between the receptionist and the nurses.
We only had a limited ultrasound where they measure the heartbeat (145 bmp) and the head and give us some adorable photos of the baby sucking it’s thumb 🙂 Which is wonderful and all OK with me. I’m glad we atleast got to see the baby. It’s very active.
So we’re still waiting, along with all of you, to find out who’s in there:) 4 more days!

Lamentations 3:22-24 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”

  1. So it must have been in the air yesterday because my house was taken over by a misbehaving toddler and lots of tears. It is amazing how much more emotional I am with this pregnancy than with Abbi. Glad you’re having a better day today!!
