Baby Update

First I want to thank each and every person for such kind sweet words yesterday....it's so wonderful to know how much people care for you and sent prayers our way even though we've never met.

Had the ultrasound this morning and didn't get good news. The baby didn't make it past 6 weeks 3 days. I was so hopeful that my dates were wrong....but his or her little heart wasn't beating! I should be 11 weeks this week so obviously something was wrong and we lost the baby.

Ugh...it hurts so much to type that, but deep down we know that it was for the best. We all pray for healthy babies...and this baby just wasn't quite ready yet.

Hubby has been wonderful.....he says we can try again and have hundreds more babies!

Ok honey, maybe not hundreds but thanks for being a sweetie!!

The big kids are gone for spring break w/the grandparents this week so this gives us some time to cope and deal before they come home.

Thanks again to everyone for caring and sending good thoughts.

Sorry to hear that, I will be praying for you and your family for peace during this time. Sometimes we don't understand the way things turn out, but it is all in God's timing and to Him be the glory through everything..even when it hurts.

I'd take advantage of the hubby offering to try again and have hundreds more babies!! That's something they don't say too often haha

Laura,

Just found your blog from Tay's. I'm SO terribly sorry you're both going through this.

I shared on Tay's blog that I too lost a baby around 10 weeks and was truly devestated, so I know what you're going through :(

Keep your head up and know that its OK and totally normal to be sad and have bad days.

Take care!!

Holly said...
