Less than 18.5 hours until the ultrasound

We’re going to see Bumble Bee again tomorrow afternoon, and I should be 6 weeks and 4 days along. This is around the time that we should be able to see the fetal pole and a heartbeat. And that is what I really, really, really want to see.

I know that I have no control over the universe. I know that I cannot will my baby to live if it’s not meant to be, but I have to believe that everything will be okay, that I can carry this pregnancy to term, and that our fourth child will be the one to come home with us. I have to keep those thoughts ahead of the fear.

So I have a request. Will you lift us up with prayers, positive energy, and good vibes? Can you surround us with light and keep us in your thoughts? Can you send out the the intention that Louie and I will feel love and comfort and peace no matter what tomorrow brings?

Thank you so much.

  3. I just prayed for you and will continue to do so throughout the day! I pray that God will give you an amazing, joy-filled day and you will see your sweet Bumble Bee’s tiny beating heart.

  4. Praying very, very hard in Perrysburg that God’s will be done and that it be His will that this Baby, sweet Bumble Bee, continue to grow and thrive inside your womb until the day comes that it can do so outside in your arms!!!!
