A Very Precious Sound

Today I heard for the first time a very, very, wonderful sound---the heartbeat of our 4th child!!!!! Yes, that's right, Mark and I are thrilled to be expecting our fourth child. After having had a miscarriage in January, I was very much looking forward to the first time of hearing that little "whoosh, whoosh". :-) All seems to be well, so well in fact that due to a couple of dates/sizes/positions/etc. not completely matching up my Dr. wants to do an early ultra sound just to make sure there is only 1 baby!!!!! Now that thought made me chuckle, and Mark... well I think he may have stuttered. hee, hee I don't really think I am, but it will give us something to wake up in the night and think about. ;-) We will know for sure by next week if we have to buy double of everything. :-) I was talking to my mom and telling her that if it really is twins I will probably go nowhere for the next 3 years or so. She told me she would quit her job to help out---now that is true thoughtfulness and kindness!!! :-) Oh, due date--end of February. As for me...I will be more than thrilled when the nausea and extremely sensitive gag reflex chooses to leave my system!!!!!


In other news, my sister Dana flew in on Monday to make some wedding plans. We have been having lots of fun and have gotten several things accomplished--thankfully, since she has an October wedding planned.

We also started our camp this week. We have a great camp ground with an open tabernacle. With temps. well over 100, we have only made it to the morning services so far. The girls LOVE to go to the children's services and thankfully, there building has AC (along with the dining hall).

Well, that is our week so far. Hope yours is going well. :-)

Congratulations! How exciting! Some people hope and wish for twins, but not I! Good luck on the findings :) I hope for your sake the nausea fades away quickly - mine sure didn't.

Congratulations! I love twins--especially when they happen to other people. :) I'm a little concerned at the number of bloggers turning up pregnant lately. Hope it's not contagious...

Carrie said...

I'm thrilled for you and Mark!

I'm with Angie, though. This little condition can't be tranferred through our blogging ranks, can it? It seems to be racing through our links!! :)

Thanks for finally telling the world...I have been anxiously awaiting the moment of sending my congrats on blogspot! Now I can definitely tell you that the thought of twins would wake me in the night! The other night I did dream that we had twin boys, but one of them was always undressed because I didn't have doubles...how wierd...anyway, I think you could handle it, just not sure about Mark! We'll be waiting to hear!
