My first few ultrasounds of this pregnancy showed twins, but we lost one of them in December. The other baby had hung on and looked totally healthy and normal in my previous ultrasounds. It's been a rough few months with complications, and an especially hard week. But we do feel a peace about things and trust the Lord's timing. This whole situation has truly made us appreciate what a MIRACLE life is. It was amazing to hold the tiny little body and see the ten tiny toes, ten little fingers, two dark eyes, and everything else. (It made me even more against abortion to see the baby so well formed even at this early stage! But that's another story).
I hope this isn't too much information, and I hope it doesn't seem like I'm trying to get sympathy. I'm just being honest. Most of my days are happy and silly and wonderful, but everyone has times like this of disappointment and pain. I know happy times are soon to follow!
