::new year, new pregnancy::

a few weeks into our new injection routine.  so thankful for my husband who will administer it for me. 

this pregnancy has been such a gift.

we have been so thankful and felt so blessed to prepare our hearts to welcome a new one into our family.

but, it has also stirred up many emotions i was not expecting.  i knew that the process of healing from crosby's pregnancy and birth would take a while.  but, i did not expect so many raw emotions to come flooding back (and neither did my dear friend, katy, when i burst into tears on the phone with her recently!).

since crosby's due date and this baby's due date are separated by days, the timeline of this pregnancy feels much like his.  and the emotions i felt on new year's eve of 2010 were absolutely horrifying as the contractions began and fear crept in.

so as this new year's eve approached, i have had moments of anxiety as i have prayed that this pregnancy would continue on it's healthy path.  i have had to turn to God so many times in these first 17 weeks and place my trust in Him alone.

i am so thankful that we have made it this far and am so hopeful for the months to come.

praise God from who all blessings flow...
