So, how are things with you?
It’s been an eventful number of months for us.
Anyone that has read our previous blog posts has read about our difficulties we have had with our pregnancies. Shortly after the last post I made, we had another miscarriage — our third. I had posted before how I thought that changing our diet enabled us to get our hormones back in check and was probably responsible for the pregnancies. We had tried for many years without becoming pregnant, and then suddenly two pregnancies in just a few months, something seemed to be different. We could now get pregnant, we just were having problems after that.
The third miscarriage was rough on us. We had been to the OBGYN and even heard the heartbeat of our baby just a few days before it happened. It seems that it wasn’t meant to be. I did not want to come on here and write about it again. It was depressing. I didn’t feel like coming on and cleaning out the hundreds of spam comments this blog receives each week. I just kind of gave up on it.
In April of this year, Amanda got pregnant again. We were nervous. We had been through it before, and were hoping for the best but expecting the worst. Our three prior miscarriages had occurred right around 6 weeks. We waited for the 6 weeks mark. Then 7 weeks. Then 8 weeks. And as time went on, our nervousness waned and turned into excitement. Months passed without incident. We heard our baby on the doppler and saw the baby growing on the ultrasounds.
As I write this, Amanda is 6 months pregnant. We’re expecting a little girl named Ava at the end of the year. Here’s her pic:Subscribe to our RSS feed!
