I can not tell you how excited we are to finally share the news that we are expecting another baby. We waited a bit longer to share the news of this pregnancy after our other experiences this year, but things are going well so far and we are SO happy.
We had an ultrasound at 6 1/2 weeks and the doctor scheduled another one for 12 weeks because there were three gestational sacs (but only one fetus) and the doctor wanted to see how that "resolved itself." At the 12-week ultrasound, there was only one gestational sac, and we held our breaths waiting to hear the heartbeat and see the baby move. When we had Jacob, I feel like I took it for granted that everything would be okay. This time, I can't explain to you the unadulterated joy I felt when I saw the baby flipping around inside me! As an added bonus, we found out at that ultrasound that we are having another BOY! I had no idea you could find out that early, but you could clearly tell it was a boy, even to my untrained eyes! Nice to know two months earlier than I expected, but now I am anxious to get him named as soon as possible so we can start calling him by name.
As I said, everything is going well so far, but if you want to throw some prayers our way, we won't turn them down!!!
