You may remember in December, when I posted about the Christmas Angel? I said it was arragont of humans to believe we can interfere with God's plans through the use of birth control. I just never thought I'd be proving it.
In February of 2007 I had a tubal ligation. It wasn't the easiest decision, but Dana and I both decided that we had our hands full, and that 2 wonderful kids was enough for us. Fast forward 2 years. So if my tubal ligation could interfere with God's plan, how did I see this on March 1st?
This is the egg sac, no baby can be seen yet.
Not only was I definitely pregnant, which we knew from the labwork I was having every few days, but it wasn't ectopic. (yes, I realize that the date on the machine is March 14, 1998. Apparently they don't use this machine much and don't care about the date.) This week I went in to verify that all was well, and I saw the heartbeat.
You probably don't see much. But the arrow is pointing to a light spot. That light spot was clearly beating on the ultrasound. This baby truly is the work of God! While it is still a bit frightening (as in we got rid of almost all of our baby stuff, and we already have a big stack of medical bills) we are also excited to welcome baby number 3 into the world in early November.
