So for those of you who didn't know, at the beginning of April we found out we were pregnant and couldn't even contain ourselves as the joy just overflowed! We'd been trying for a few months and just couldn't believe it. Our hearts were just filled with love for our new little life growing inside of me. Last week our baby was the size of a blueberry! Amazing how such a tiny thing was already forming into a little baby and had a heartbeat. Last Tuesday we had our first appointment, and we were set to have our first sonogram this Thursday to hear that little heartbeat for the first time...however this past Thursday I had to go back to the doctor's office to get some more bloodwork done due to some things that had started to happen and Friday we found out that we had lost our little blueberry. You never how much it hurts until it happens to you. The nurse called me on the phone just as I was pulling out of the parking lot after having lunch with Allen. I pulled back around, he drove us home and we cried ourselves to sleep in each others arms. Never before have I felt such loss as I have now. We pray that through this loss, God will draw us even closer to Him and to each other, that we would find comfort that only He can provide. We never realized how many people we know have gone through the same thing. There are times when we are doing fine, and other times when it just hits you out of nowhere. But "we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,a]"> forB)"> those who are called according to his purpose."
We have decided to plant a blueberry hedge in our backyard in memory of our little blueberry. I'll post some pics once we get them planted!
Thank you for all of your love and support through this tough season in our lives!
