My First Ultrasound - 8 Weeks

Turns out there is only one baby in there and I am 8 weeks and 2 days along.  We saw and heard his heartbeat, it was beating at 176 bpm.  Katie was ecstatic and I was crying and my husband was beaming he was so happy lol.  You may notice I'm calling the baby a "he."  That is because I believe it is a boy and we even picked the name Zachary a few weeks ago in the car on the way home.  It wasn't until after that, that I looked it up to see what it meant.  Zachary means "God has remembered!"  How incredible is that!?  After all these years, God has remembered me and opened up my womb again!!!

I hadn't discussed it on here, but I was depressed as the doctor had told me in January that I was most likely infertile and may not even be able to have anymore children.  I had almost given up, we had quit "trying" and thinking about a baby and I was going on with my life.  We even started seriously discussing adoption.  Then I missed my period and I was shocked as I'm like clock-work and track my cycle meticulously.  How could I be pregnant when we had pretty much given up?  As soon as I took the test, there was a line - there was no doubt that I was pregnant!

Longtime readers may know that I was told I was sterile when I was 23 and right after I got that dismal outlook I got pregnant with Katie.  It is almost as if God was waiting for the doctor to once again say those words, sentencing me to a barren womb, so that He could show Himself mighty and work another miracle!!!!  God has remembered me!

How awesome!!! I am so happy for you! After I had my first chid I didn't have my next baby until 9 years later... I had also been told that I could not have any more children. God is so great!

By the way, I didn't receive the email notification of your post...

Thanks Tay! My email post goes out between 7-9pm every evening but I posted this one later than that so it won't deliver until tonight.

Isn't that just like God? So happy for you and your family. Happy 2 months. Praying that you are feeling better. What an exciting time!

Maybe adoption will still be in future... :)God may use those conversations to still build your family both through biology and adoption. After all, God calls us to care for the widow and orphan and His very heartbeat is for adoption. Praising God for His wondrous adoption of us.

Congrats again on this wonderful and unexpected pregnancy!
