BABY NUFFER #2 is on his/her way!!!!

That's right, we were waiting to tell everyone, but today we had our second appointment and the second sono and Baby Nuffer #2 is doing well. Most of you know that we had a miscarriage in June after struggling with infertility, it was a very devastating time for us. We were "advised" to wait a couple cycles before trying again (and we were going to take the advice), but a little voice, I know now it was the Spirit, told me we should try again as soon as possible. I talked to Jim and he agreed and sure enough baby #2 is on it's way again! This little one is very healthy and has a strong heartbeat!! We aren't out of the woods yet, I'm just under 9 weeks and at 12 weeks our chances of miscarriage drop significantly. I don't feel we'll be out of the woods until I have our little baby in my arms, which will only give me a whole new set of stresses to worry about. ;)

This is Baby Nuffer #2 at 6 weeks and 5 days. If you look close it's off to the right and you can make out the giant head on top with tiny arm and leg buds.

Here is Baby Nuffer #2, or as I call it, "Baby Bug", at 8 weeks and 5 days today. In most of them you can't see much other than Baby Bug's giant head (which hold it's giant brain), but the bright spot in the body is the heartbeat. In the last picture, at the bottom, you can see little crossed legs with feet. SO CUTE!!

Anyway, we are SO excited to finally be able to tell people!!

To all of our church friends: We haven't been inactive, I've been on bed rest. We weren't ready to tell people except the RS president and the bishop, but now you can all know. I'm off bed rest now and I will see you all on Sunday!

PS I was originally due April Fool's day which made me think it's a girl because I want another boy so badly, but now I'm due April 3rd. ...I still think it's a girl though. ;)
