Dusting off the ol' Blog

There are a few ways to look at yesterday's post. One could say that Chad is a dirty dog for posting only one sentence. On the other hand, you could say at least he posted something! Chad broke the news so I'll try to fill in the details.

We are so excited! We found out a little over a month ago that we are having baby #4! I am due on November 18th which seems like a long way away. Tomorrow I'll be 8 weeks along and so far everything is going well. Since I have a history of miscarriage (I've had 5 so far), the doctor put me on progesterone to help sustain the pregnancy until the baby starts producing progesterone on its own. That usually happens between week 10 and 12. I've had bloodwork done several times and everything looks perfect. On Friday we had an appointment with my new doctor and we were able to have an ultrasound and see a tiny heartbeat. It was amazing. Every single time it's amazing. And it was such a relief. I didn't realize how worried I had been about the well-being of this baby until I saw the heartbeat and knew that everything was okay. The doctor said that the baby measures perfectly for how far along I am. The doctor also gave me some medicine to help with my "every-minute-of-the-day" sickness. I'm very thankful for that because I have been feeling pretty terrible for the last month or so.

So, there's the scoop. Thanks for being excited with us! We are thrilled and feel so blessed.
