♥ Happy Tears ♥

I guess I was bound to cry at today's ultrasound, and sure enough, as soon as I heard our little one's heart beating, as perfect as can be, the tears started falling! Happy, joyful, THANKFUL tears!!! I knew I was a little bit worried, but I didn't realize just how scared I was until today...

I had the same ultrasound tech that I had in the fall, and she didn't hesitate to let me hear the heart beating and reassured me that everything looks just fine this time.


My due date is December 24th!!! The ultrasound machine kept going back and forth between the 24th and the 25th before finally settling on the 24th. Either way, we seem to have a Christmas baby on the way!

To celebrate I picked up a box of See's candy for me my family and a couple maternity tops... Is it really possible to start showing at just 8 weeks???? lol!

Thank you all for your prayers!!!

  11. Congratulations, Jessica! I'll be praying for you. Just found out we are having a New Years baby! After two miscarriages in the last year I can totally relate to that wonderful feeling of seeing a little heartbeat. Nothing could be more exciting! I will certainly remember you and your little one with lots of prayers for a healthy baby and a Merry Christmas. God is good!

  34. "3 Cheers!!!" with the angels and saints for the gift of life God has blessed you with again!! An eternal soul and jewel in your family crown - what a JOY to read this! I once had a doctor who works with Pope Paul VI Institute tell me that "REST won't stop complications with an unhealthy pregnancy (as in it won't stop already present problems), but it CAN help otherwise", so be sure to rest up extra each day with your busy life - it helped me to know I was witnessing to the sanctity of life with my children when I would slow down for the sake of new life! God bless and protect you all!

  35. Oh Jessica! I am so happy to hear this news, and thrilled for two reasons; first all is okay of course and secondly, I would love your baby to share a blessed birthday with our Lord Jesus, and selfishly, Dec.25th is my birthday too, so heh, love it all. (big grin) We have news our son and his wife are also expecting in December, so much to look forward to. Yippee! Happy tears is right. I will be praying for you, and send congratulations to you and your family once more here. God Bless!
