This morning I went in for my first appointment to see my midwife and ultrasound. Normally, it is a day of joy but today there was tears. When they did the ultrasound, they found an empty sac instead of a 9 1/2 week old baby. This means that our little one stopped growing and died very early. My body still thinks that it is pregnant. The sac is still growing, my pregnancy hormones are still there, along with pregnancy symptoms. Now, we wait for my body to do what it needs to do at the right time.
Though it brought a day(s) of mourning, I still trust in the Lord and know that this is for His glory. His plan is far better than my plans for He sees the big picture and created all things. Thank you Lord Jesus for being my strength and high tower!
