2011.02.24 God Granted a Miracle!

We went in this morning for our sonogram, expecting the worse.  It was almost confirmed.  The technician couldn't find a fetus.  I knew something was wrong and asked her if it was a fake pregnancy and if there was nothing there.  She said I have an enlarged uterus so it was hard to locate anything in the sac.  Pretty soon she realized there were two sacs!  Yes twins.  Apparently one never fully developed and appears to possibly be the reason for my bleeding.  The second sac has a fetus that is tracking perfectly at 7weeks 5 days!  We could see the heartbeat, too at 142 bpm.  It was amazing and we were in shock.  The rest of my exam went great and everything appears to be perfectly normal for the little one that is viable!  The doc wants me to stay off my feet for a couple of days to make sure the bleeding has stopped, but it appears we may be ok!  I prayed and prayed for a miracle and God answered my prayers.  We are sad for the loss of the twin, but are so thankful that there is still one hanging in there.  Thank everyone for your kind words and prayers!  I am here to tell you that they worked.  God heard them and answered them!  We are beyond blessed.
