Great Expectations

Tucker. Max. Annabelle. Madalyn. We don't yet know what we will call you, but yesterday, on October 3rd, we learned that you were growing inside of me. I had been feeling funny for the past few days...crampy, extra tired, just a hint of nausea. I want to say that I knew, and I think I did. Yesterday at work, I looked at myself in the bathroom mirror and put both hands on my stomach. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath, and felt like there was something beyond me happening in my body. I have never been so sure about something in my life, and yet, when I took the test after work, I could not believe my eyes. I made Sean come running down the stairs. I think the first thing I said to him was "I need you to help me make sure I'm not reading this wrong!". We looked at each other with joy and disbelief, and gave each other a huge what?!

We hope and pray that you stay with us, that you grow bigger each day. I want you to find a safe comfy spot in there, and grow healthy and strong. I will do everything I can to take care of you, and to try not to stress. Sean will help me to eat healthy, and will take care of me, so I can take care of you. We will begin to plan the next steps of our lives...slowly, tentatively, and with the greatest amount of hope.

I believe that I am about 6 weeks pregnant. You are the size of a poppy seed.
