I first want to start this post by expressing my overwhelming feeling of gratitude for all of the blessings in my life. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for me and for my family and I am grateful for our trials, which bring us closer as a family and brings me closer to the Lord. I am also grateful for the blessings that he pours down on us.
With this being said, I'm happy to post that we're having a baby! Baby Dille 2 will be here in the beginning of Nov. or if this baby is big like Carter was, will most likely make its appearance at the end of October. They say I am 13 weeks, and in the ultrasound below the baby is measuring 13 wks 5 days. We are so excited and still can't believe it.
I wanted to wait until the end of the first trimester and the beginning on the second, before telling everyone. We had a few complications before Carter so I was hesitant to say anything and always fearful in the back of my mind that I would have to go through all of it over again. What a blessing that this pregnancy has been. The baby is doing well and has been "by the book" so far. I'm still having some problems with feeling like someone is sitting on my chest and feeling out of breath all of the time, but with a new prescription that should decrease. I've had several weeks, where it was all that I could do to survive. My definition of "clean" has now changed and I am just happy to make it through the day with Carter. He's so busy and this pregnancy has been harder trying to manage the nausea, fatigue and a 11 month old learning to walk. This week I am starting to feel better and after my appointment yesterday it finally feels real to me. I'm not as worried about losing the baby and I was so excited to see the ultrasound. Our baby looks like a baby and I couldn't be any happier.
I never fully comprehended what an actual miracle it is to get pregnant or give birth to a healthy baby until we struggled to have Carter and when Carter was born. With all of our past complications I was truly humbled to have this perfect being in my arms. A perfect spirit that had just moments before been with the Lord. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and peace as I type this and I know without a doubt that the Lord is blessing our family again and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a mother again.
