The Big Day!

We have our ultrasound this morning at 8am! I am so excited, nervous, giddy, anxious, all these emotions at once. I am still puking so the mornings are the worst. On top of that, I have to drink 32oz of liquid for the ultrasound, not throw it up, and not pee! This is proving to be quite a challenge!

I better keep drinking...but glad I was up early enough to spend a little time praying and calming my anxious heart. God is so good! I know He will be holding Richard and I up no matter what we discover on the ultrasound. Please pray for us if you think of it. I have no reason to believe this baby isn't perfectly healthy, however, working in the NICU has taught me that you can never take anything for granted. I feel any "healthy and normal delivery" is a miracle in itself. Unlike the general population, who often think it odd to hear of a "bad delivery" or a baby born with anything wrong!

Poor Richard has to hold my hand and keep me calm as I wait to see all major organs present and accounted for before I can enjoy the simple pleasure of watching our little one dance around on the screen.

Lord, you are bigger than any problem we could potentially face. You have a plan for this child and you knew about him or her before he or she was ever a thought in our eyes. I pray for peace, comfort, and strength as we wait to see our little one. I know you are always there and I am so grateful for your presence and thankful for my calmed anxious heart. We love you Lord, always. Give me strength to walk the path you have chosen for us and this unborn miracle you have created and blessed us with!

Praying for you right now, friend, as you wait. Excited to see what God has in store for this little, precious life. Are you going to find out if it's a boy or a girl?

Praying and holding my breath to hear if you are finding out and telling what you are having!! SO excited for you! After years of PICU experience, I share your same wonder at the miracle of a healthy and perfect child! Praise Him for His perfect plan!
