We are no longer expecting a baby. I found out Friday morning that the baby didn't have a heartbeat. I passed the baby Friday night and am feeling good. I have had bits of bleeding for about three weeks now. I went in twice and the baby was fine both times. I had more bleeding and some cramping Thursday night. At that point I just knew inside that it was over. So I wasn't surprised Friday morning.
Even though I am sad, I feel at peace. Looking back at Friday (which was crazy because it was Thomas's birthday, which included bringing cupcakes to the classroom and throwing a birthday party) I see so many 'tender mercies'...small blessings from Heavenly Father that made a big difference to me. I feel certain that Heavenly Father is aware of me, my feelings, and my needs.
On a happier note, here are a few pictures from the past few weeks...
Thomas at school on his first day of Kindergarten!
Uncle Jake and the boys on Nicholas' birthday. I love how they are looking at Jake like, "How does he get those muscles to pop out of there?"
