I've decided to come clean about why I haven't been blogging.
We are pregnant again ... and it's pretty much all I can think about.
I didn't want to talk about it publicly since we recently had a miscarriage that was so painful to heal from.
Like NOT talking about it would be less painful if we lost this pregnancy.
I was guarding my heart.
My counselor says it's normal. ;)
But I decided today ...
To NOT tell my story would be to deny myself of the truth.
And to not fully enjoy the moment.
So here you go ...
The first pictures of Baby Stookey (and be sure to check out that strong heartbeat!) ...
We had some disappointing news today when we went to the doctor.
We thought I was 8-1/2 weeks pregnant.
Turns out the baby is measuring 6 weeks and 4 days growth.
So we were off a bit in our calculations.
I cried for 2 hours.
Mainly because I've been so sick with this pregnancy, I felt like a lost (or gained!) two more weeks.
But after a good 2-hour cry (some would say I'm emotionally unstable), I have some perspective.
I am not far along.
But we have a baby with a good, strong heartbeat.
We are hopeful.
And cautiously excited.
And honored to share this journey with you.
Because this blog is like my therapy.
And because you have all been so supportive.
We love you all.
Thanks for the continued prayers.
We continue to rely on our friends, family, and God's plan for our future.
As a side note, the tech told me today ...
- I have an "interesting" shaped uterus
- My uterus is "really" tilted
- I have a "really good-looking yolk sack"
