{7w0d, Round 2}

Early this morning, my regular OB called to personally congratulate and invite us to come in for an ultrasound.  Our regular appointment isn't scheduled until later this week, but as soon as he heard the news he wanted to fit us in immediately, just to see this little miracle for himself.
Our newest tiny human is due September 17,  has a beating heart and is measuring right on track.

The love I felt as I watched the tiny flicker of a heart on the screen was immeasurable.  I'm still so in awe of this blessing, so humbled that God chose to allow me one more life to grow and raise for Him, and so very grateful that we will have a fourth pumpkin this Halloween, an extra place setting this Thanksgiving, and one more stocking this Christmas. 

We are so blessed.

  1. Nothing short of amazing!! I love that this is real for you!!

  2. Hey baby!!! You have a fabulous Mommy, little one. I love her lots. You, Precious, have been and will always be covered in prayer. Cannot wait to watch you grow and see just what Jesus has planned for your miracle life. What a testimony you already are! I so love you!!!!

  3. Congratulations! I am so happy that you got this story of a surprise as yours! That's incredible! What a testimony you have!

    I found your blog years ago when I was also trying to get pregnant and I appreciated your positive, but real, view. I haven't done much reading since I became a mother (I now have a May baby that is 2.5 years old and 1 year old twins), but I'm so glad I happened on your blog again.

    When you said you felt so strongly that you were meant to have another child, I loved that - I believe that was God pressing it into your heart and helping you to hang in there.

    Enjoy your second miracle!
