One year since my first Pregnancy, I found out I was expecting again. I have been very nervous to tell anyone until now because of my other three losses. But I went to the doctor on this past Tuesday and he found the heartbeat. The baby’s heartbeat is very strong and its growing very well. We are both super excited and very grateful for this blessing. We would like to thank all who prayed on our behalf and for the support that we have received from all. Thank you so much for being there for us when we needed it the most. It was a very hard year for us but it made us stronger as a couple and made us more grateful for this child. I am due in October.
The Doctor said that my body was not producing a certain hormone that you need to keep the baby growing. After I got pregnant, I was put on 4 prescriptions that will keep me and, more importantly, the baby healthy. I have had blood drawn every week for the past 5 weeks to make sure that everything is going well. All of my levels are great and I will slowly start going off of some of these prescriptions soon. My body has finally realized what is needs to be doing.
We have also decided to move to Provo, UT so Dale can attend law school. He was offered a $5,000/year scholarship which means he will only be paying about $4,000/year for tuition. We are very excited for the change but it has been bittersweet. We will be having the baby there which means that most of you will not be able to see the baby until that Christmas. It will be an adventure. If anyone knows of a good OBGYN there let me know.
Thank you again for all of your prayers and support. Don’t stop praying for our little family for we are not out of the woods yet. We love you all and will keep you posted.
