One year ago today we found out that not only was the pregnancy a healthy one, but we were pregnant with more than one baby!
I remember I was so worried about the my doctor's appt. I prayed and prayed that our ultrasound would reveal a strong and healthy little baby. I kept myself up at night praying and woke up praying. I was so nervous!
On our appointment day Scott came from across town and I told him not to worry about getting there right when the appt. was scheduled because I never got in until at least thirty minutes after the scheduled time. But woudln't you know this one time they got me in the moment I sat down!
Off to the ultrasound rooom I went, nervous and completely scared. I can't tell you how panicked I was, and already a bit upset that Scott wasn't with me. But when the ultrasound tech saw more than one baby, I saw it too! She couldn't say anything without first getting the doctor, but it was sort of hard to hide! Sure enough my doctor came and told me there was more than one.
I called Scott, who was almost to the office. I told him the news, and his very calm reaction, "Oh my. That is funny."
After all my "hyper-prayers" and fear and emotion, God gave us two beautiful babies. I've always felt like it was sort of like him saying, "Could you trust me some? I've got this!"
I will never forget that day. Elsie and Eli are our pure joy. What a difference a year makes, huh? I can't imagine life without our two blessings!
