We had our big ultrasound yesterday. We found out we were expecting right at 4 weeks, so waiting until I was 16 weeks along felt like an eternity. But luckily I have two little boys who have kept me plenty busy to keep my mind off things, fun holidays and party planning, and you know just getting through all the fun morning sickness.
But it feels like we've waited longer than just three months. It feels like this journey started over a year ago. I've always felt in my heart that we were supposed to have a daughter, and when we found out last september that we were expecting, I knew it was our girl. We had so many words, and friends who shared dreams about us having a daughter. Unfortunately I had a miscarriage, which left me feeling really confused. And then we didn't know if we wanted a third baby, but in my heart I wasn't sure if I would ever be able to accept our family as it was, because it felt incomplete.
It wasn't planned but my due date with this baby is very close to the due date of the baby we lost last year...only days apart. And when we first realized that it did crazy things to me, brought fear and worries but once again God brought people into our lives who hadn't know our situation to bring confirmation that this desire in our hearts would be met.
I feel so overwhelmed with thankfulness..
