But I have to mention my little bl0gging hiatus for a moment. There was actually a concrete reason behind my lack of blogging, even though I said there wasn't. And although everything I said in my last post is true, there was just more to it. Mike and I had something going on in our lives that was all consuming and something that I couldn't share at the time. It was an emotional time for us, but we are feeling so blessed beyond words. Here's 2 reasons why...
(Sorry for the terrible picture--my scanner is not cooperating, or maybe it's operator error!)
I'm beyond happy to announce that I'm pregnant! With twins! This ultrasound pic was taken at 7 weeks and we were able to see both babies perfectly and see and hear their heartbeats! I bawled my eyes out and Mike started laughing. Hard. Like it was the funniest thing he had ever seen or heard. I honestly didn't know what to say, and the words didn't come out right away. I just cried.
We had another ultrasound at 8 weeks, and I will post those this week (if I can figure out how to enlarge them). Again, the babies looked great and the hearbeats were the sweetest sounds I have ever heard. It was such a relief to hear the heartbeats, I can't even tell you.
Currently, I am at 11 weeks and still am pinching myself. I can't believe we are here. I can't believe that everything that I have been praying for has been answered. I feel a million different things, but blessed is the best word I can think of to describe this. Or maybe thankful beyond all description is better.
So that's the major reason I have been away from the blog world. I was waiting to tell my brother Paul and sister-in-law Heather and other loved ones in our family on Thanksgiving, and I couldn't seem to want to blog about anything else.
I started this blog when I was in a sad place, thinking that it would give me a place to truly be myself. And it has. You have witnessed my road of difficulty as I dealt with my miscarriage, and my journey with infertility, and now I can't wait to share this new chapter of my life with you!
