Today I Heard Good News

August 2009 006

This morning I had an ultrasound to confirm what I have known since early July . . . we are expecting a BABY!   For good reason my anxiety level is out of control and I continually pray for peace of mind.  I wanted to go to the doctor’s office alone and I was expecting bad news.  With my other pregnancies I had lots of symptoms and so far I have felt nothing.  I was beginning to think I had a false positive test and was trying not to get my hopes up. 

As the technician set up the monitors I willed myself not to get teary eyed at the thought of the last time I was in this exact spot.   Even though I was physically alone in the room I had many that were praying for good news and were just as anxious as I was. 

*Sidenote*  Life Transformation Groups(LTG) ROCK!!

In that second there was our little baby moving all around on the screen.  I cautiously asked the lady if there was a heartbeat when she turned the sound up and I was able to hear the perfect heartbeat(153).  I let out a big sigh of relief.  The pregnancy finally became real.  I’m PREGNANT!!!!!! :) 

Baby’s due date is March 7th. 

Let the countdown begin . . .

So I just got a monitor tonight and am catching up on my blogs. So woo hoo!! What a relief. I know exactly what you were feeling. I couldn't help remembering being in that same room and hearing the bad news. But now it's good news. God knows what he's doing. If we don't go through the valleys, how will we know what a mountain top feels like?
I'm very happy for you guys. And I think it's a boy. I don't think my girls ever went below 155 on the heart rate.
