Our Blessings

Do you know how hard it is to blog when you are keeping a secret? For the past 2 months we have been keeping a secret and it has consumed my life. Today I am coming clean....

We are pregnant! We found out about 3 weeks ago and have been trying to hide it. We did not intend to tell until November but yesterday we were shocked!

Yesterday our sonogram showed 2 heartbeats and then several minutes later a 3rd heartbeat! Triplets? We are still in shock! That word is just strange to me!

A lot of you know our history and know that we have had identical twin girls, Maci & Marli who were diagnosed with Twin-to-Twin-Transfusion Syndrome when I was 18 weeks along. We lost them at 22 weeks. Well, we have another set of identical twins inside me now along with a singleton. We are trusting that God does not plan for us to go down that road again. Anyway, we will go to a high risk doctor in 2 weeks to check everything out. Please pray that everything turns out fine and that we have a healthy LONG pregnancy.

Right now we are just enjoying the three sweet babies growing inside of me and are trying to wrap our heads around being parents of 5! I think our lives may be changing just a bit ;)
