Today we went back to get another ultrasound to determine whether we were having a son or another daughter in May. If you remember from last week's post, this baby would simply NOT uncross it's legs and "show the goods", but we were happy because otherwise the baby's heartbeat was strong and all looked good.
Today we returned to try again.
Shaun had just returned to work a couple of days ago after being out of work for over 2.5 weeks from our second car accident last month, so he could not come with us. Instead, my mother joined me with the girls.
Unfortunately they could not find the baby's heartbeat this week and the ultrasound tech (who has known our family through our other pregnancies and is just a sweetheart) started to cry. She got my midwife who came in and sadly held my hand as they searched to no avail. Our baby had died sometime this past week between the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe and today.
As you can imagine... we are heartbroken. Please keep us in your prayers.
- Marijanna and Shaun
- We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.
