a little announcement

Andrew and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting our second baby! We’ve been praying for this little one since B was about 7 months old, and we are very thankful that God has, in His perfect timing, chosen to bless us with another little one now. Our baby is due June 1st, but we’re expecting him/her to arrive closer to the middle of May.

Today was my 12 week ultrasound and everything looks great!
The baby is measuring right on schedule and was rolling around for us, stretching its little legs (see the bottom right picture), and even hiccuping! We are very pleased to see that everything is going so well.

I had another ultrasound at 8 weeks, and everything was looking spot on then too, but we wanted to wait and verify everything today before letting everyone know. I have two diseases/disorders that make my pregnancies high risk – PCOS which puts me at a higher risk for first trimester miscarriages, and then I have a Factor V Leiden deficiency which is a blood clotting problem that puts me at risk for miscarrying in the second and third trimesters. I’m on a prophylactic dose of blood thinners for the rest of this pregnancy, but more on that in a few days.

Please join us in rejoicing in the miracle of this little one, and pray with us that the next six months go smoothly and quickly!

    “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.” -Psalm 127:3 & 4.

    We are rejoicing with you! Praise God!

    Congratulations!! (12 week ultrasounds are so fun, you can see the baby so well) I’m due with our second at the beginning of January, so I’m entering the last stage of bumping-into-things -exhaustion. May God bless and protect your little one.

    Praise God! What joyous news. We’ll be praying for your safe pregnancy & delivery of this new little one. What does your daughter think, or does she understand it yet?
