In March, Seth and I learned we were expecting. Our new addition would join our family in November and we couldn’t be more excited, or terrified. But we were ready. Well, as ready as anyone ever is to become a parent, I guess.
Because of some early bleeding and an uncertain cycle, we had an “early” ultrasound. I say it like that because we were actually further along than we thought, so it wasn’t actually all that early. But it turned out to be a good thing because we got a good due date because it was halfway through the 7th week. This good due date helped us later when we realized I might have issues with hypertension and our babe’s growth was affected.
Let the journey begin, right? Yeah, exactly. It has been a journey… I’ve learned so much. And I’m happy to share it all… from midwifery, to preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome to micro-preemie and life in the NICU.
God is walking with us in this unchartered territory. My husband and I agree it’s important to share our journey, along with our little peanut’s journey, not for pity, but to show how God continues to show up in the dark places. And our journey started well before November.
