Jeremiah prayed with me tonight. I was holding him and rocking him, and he put his hand on my belly and prayed, “Dear Lord, Please be with Mama’s baby. Please don’t let it die and don’t let it get hurt in her belly. And please let it be borned ok. Amen.”
I don’t know when this will be posted, since I am going to be MUCH more cautious about telling people this time around. I’m assuming another miscarriage would not so closely follow one, but I really didn’t feel like double blows would be fun to share with everyone! But anyway, this was written on Jan. 30. I found out today. My friend Kelly came over with a dollar store test, just to see. You see, on Monday at choir practice, I was sure I was starting my period. I had wiped in the bathroom (just after discussing buying pregnancy tests earlier on the way to practice) and found very light pink blood. One little bit, in that one wipe. So I assumed great, it’s coming. Tuesday it didn’t come. Wednesday it didn’t come. Thursday it didn’t come and I ordered some of those cheap testing strips online. So today (Friday) when Kelly called telling me she’d picked up some dollar tests, and asked if I wanted one, I said sure! Why not, right? It had the FAINTEST line. But it was a line.
So there you have it. So far Kelly knows, Mom knows and Amanda knows…Oh and the boys know, because I had to explain why I’m so tired and grumpy (now that I know). I am trying to think of a fun way to surprise Jerry, but by the time you see this, that will already have happened and I’ll have to add that to my story. 😛
PLEASE pray for Baby Bless (this is the nickname that came to me). So far things seem normal, so that’s good…I’m telling as little people as possible this time around, just to be safe. I haven’t officially blogged about it yet.
