Soon-to-be Sommer #7

Well, as many of you know, I have struggled the last 10 years or so with infertility. So this post is probably going to come as quite a surprise to you. Mike and I are expecting another baby, without the help of medical technology! And thank goodness, only ONE this time. Let me tell ya, this is a (shocking) miracle!!! Just 3 months ago, I spoke to my doctor about having a hysterectomy due to my endometriosis just being so incredibly painful and I knew that although I had always dreamed of having another child, it just was not going to happen. So imagine my surprise a few months later when I thought, hmmm, I don't feel well.... I thought, there's no way I could be pregnant, but, I'll take a test just to be sure. And lo and behold....I'm pregnant! And not only that, I'm 11 weeks pregnant!!! We had an ultrasound today to confirm that there is in fact only one (whew!) and my due date is July 22nd.
This baby is truly a miracle! My twins are definitely miracles too, but with the help of medical technology and in vitro fertilization, but this baby is au naturale and such a blessing! Mike and I have had about a week and a half to adjust to the idea, and although we are still in shock and not quite sure where in the world this baby is going to go, we are absolutely ecstatic!
