That's right, Clara is going to be a big sister! I've been waiting for our second ultrasound to let our little secret out, however Clara has been telling people left and right.. so for some, they knew far before I was ready to let it spill! I guess she was just too darn excited. ;)
We found out around the second week in June... and was able to get into my first appointment at 7 weeks, and we first saw our sweet baby then. But I was feeling cautious, although happy, and was trying not to get too excited. My miscarriage last year (which was my second miscarriage)... happened after our first ultrasound.. where we saw a perfectly fine baby. So I was nervous, and hesitant.. but prayed every day for this baby. We had the second ultrasound at 11 weeks. I was so nervous, I felt sick. I didn't even look at the ultrasound, until he said everything had looked good... and I looked and saw a growing baby.. a strong heartbeat.. a cute little noggin, and teensy arms and legs. I shed a happy tear or two.. or three. I still continue to pray for this baby, that he/she continues to grow to be strong and healthy.
And now, I feel excited.
And obviously Clara will just be the best big sister in the world. She has such a big heart, and a sweet soul.. and I am excited to see how she will interact with a new brother or sister. And according to her, she's getting one of each... hate to break it to you, girlfriend... there's only one baby in there!!
