Ten Weeks

Ten weeks was an important goal in my pregnancy with Lily. While I had carried a baby until eleven weeks before, none had ever survived with that tiny, flickering heartbeat past nine weeks. I remember being so eager to make it past that point and get to ten weeks. Of course the next big milestone was to actually make it to the second trimester, which I had never done in six pregnancies.

Those were some truly scary times for me, as we waited in between ultrasounds to find out if our baby's heart was still beating. All I could do was hope and pray... and wait.

Today my girl is ten weeks old. It's amazing how slowly that time seemed to creep by during the pregnancy and how quickly it has passed since she was born. Ten very nervous and fearful weeks with her inside of my womb, and now ten wonderful weeks of looking at this sweet face.


I'm so overwhelmed, and so very, very thankful.

I don't know how you do it Stacey.

My niece's baby girl is about 6 weeks. She posted this at FB today:

is amazed that God would entrust me with something so precious! ...Dear Lord help me to be the mother she needs me to be. Give me the grace and diligence to lead her to you and your incredible love!

Frankly, it makes me want to smack her up the head.

Yet you've said something in the same line but with so much grace and kindness. I love being able to follow you & your journey. I'm so sad you lost your previous pregnancies and i wish that hadn't happened. But i so appreciate that you can be so loving and gracious in the midst of your blessing.

Thank you dear. Hugs to you & Lily.

Oh yes, those fears behind you and new mercies you are experiencing. I'm so happy for that for you guys. She is precious and looks just like you! What a treasure.

How true how those first weeks of pregnancy creep by, and you have to continually choose faith over fear. Praise God for bringing such beauty into your life, for turning your mourning into dancing!! She's a peach!

Prepare yourself. Time only goes by faster from here on out. I can't believe that Will is over 2 and that Miss Emma is almost 5 months. Craziness, I tell ya.

SHE IS GORGEOUS, btw! Those eyes!

Happy ten weeks Lily :) I remember thinking the same thing as you when I had my little boy - that the days crept by when I was pregnant then all of a sudden once I had my baby in my arms the time started flying. She sure is a beautiful girl and I am thrilled to see how happy you are and how well she is doing :)

She is so cute! I wish I could meet her (was very jealous when I found out Andi got to).

Stacy said...
