Okay, so this sonogram was done about a month ago, now he/she has actual legs and arms:) I was so nervous the day of the sonogram. We've had two pregnancies, as you know, over the past year and a half that were blighted ovum(sac, but no baby) so when we saw the baby and the little heartbeating it was one of the happiest moments of my life. I cried right there. It was an answer to a very very heartfelt prayer. Over the past year or so, I had prayed many times for a baby and for a healthy pregnancy. But in December, I had a day where I just felt desperate and sad. I was in tears and I couldn't stop crying. I knelt down by my bed and prayed the hardest, most heart-felt, most sincere, most difficult prayer of my life, basically begging for a child. I had never prayed like that. And when I finished, I had a feeling of comfort and I knew everything was going to be fine. Sure enough, the following week, we found out I was in fact pregnant:) And honestly, we hadn't been "trying" even(I was feeling a little burnt out from trying for what seemed like forever, with only disappointment. I decided overthinking it was just stressing me out and upsetting me, so we left it in the Lord's hands). It was truly a miracle to me. My testimony of prayer has increased immensely. Ever since then I've made it a goal to better my relationship with my Heavenly Father and talk to Him more often. He is there for me and loves me. I knew it before, but I know it in a different way now.
This morning I had an appointment and we actually got to hear that little heartbeat. It was a wonderful sound! We are so excited for this pregnancy and to meet this new little person in a few months. My due date is September 1(right after my birthday! kinda cool!) Please keep us in your prayers. . .
