Today I want to share with you all that we are pregnant again. We just returned from our 12-week ultrasound; everything looks good and we are shooting for a January 9 due date.
This is something that we’re definitely excited about, although it does carry with it a ton of emotions after losing our boys halfway through our last pregnancy. I was hit with it today during the ultrasound as we saw a little girl-boy moving around, squirming, waving at us and just generally being super-cute. When we saw the little hand waving at us, all I could think of was sitting there in the room at Kaiser Walnut Creek, holding a little hand that was only 7 weeks older than this little boy-girl. I KNOW how freakin’ cute that little hand is, because I’ve held not one, but two little hands just like that.
It’s an interesting thing to be sitting there in a moment of joy but also still be on a journey of grief.
Anyway – I don’t want to get all melancholy on you. We are excited, and this has been a deep joy for us the past three months. We’re glad to be able to share this news with family, friends and church-folk now and we invite you to join in this celebration with us.
