As much as I've been feeling sorry for myself lately (for going to the ER and being told there's nothing wrong and to just go home), I am still very blessed to still have my little peanut inside me, and she is healthy. Yes, you read that right...we're about 80% sure that there's a girl in there, we'll find out for sure on August 6th! I'm on a couple of pregnancy boards online and there was a lady on there that is a couple weeks further along than I am and she hadn't told her family or other children that she was expecting yet. She wanted to find out what she was having first. She went in for her normal visit and they couldn't find the heartbeat, they did an ultrasound and couldn't find one there either. They then sent her over to the hospital to have an actual tech do one, and again, they found no signs of life. My heart broke for this poor woman and it made me really think twice about my situation.
Even though things have been hard, and at times have seemed impossible to get through, I still have my baby inside, healthy and strong! I still have my whole family in tact (this is another thing that is plaguing that pregnancy board...seriously...so many issues for people to deal with)! I have family that is ready and willing to come out and help me at the drop of a hat. I have friends and fellow Ward members that will come over and help me when needed. Everyone is rallying around me SO much, that I really am feeling so blessed to have such great family and friends! What are some things YOU are thankful for in your life?!
