My Cup Runneth Over

Little one so tiny and small. Little one who has such a huge place in my heart already. I felt you kick your tiny feet! I can hardly believe it! What a gift to know you are there! The very first kick was this past Sat. on March 22.  Almost 16 weeks to the day. Today you gave us a good scare. I went in to the Doctor for my 16 week check-up and she could not find a heartbeat. She tried and tried for quite some time- over and over again. I knew you were there, because I had just felt your first kicks a couple of days before. But fear struck my heart as we have been through this before. We have three babies in Heaven. I prayed and waited and waited and prayed until the ultrasound tech could see me. Finally it was my turn and almost immediately you appeared on the screen, curled up and kicking away. Your heart was beating, although probably not as fast as mine. The tears were streaming my face in Thanksgiving to God. She asked me if I wanted to know what we were having and I said yes, of course! I already know that it is a boy- but please tell me if you can. She said ..."You are having a baby boy!" I felt like my heart was about to burst! Another son. I am humbled and honored and cannot wait to hold you in my arms.... my sweet, precious Prince.  I came home and waited for Daddy and we told all the children together and video-taped their reactions! It was quite a party and there was a lot of excitement in the air. So much so, that our baby Pearl- stood up and took two steps by herself!!! She is 9 months old and we were in luck that the camera was already running. My heart was overflowing with joy and anticipation and thanksgiving and in that moment I was reminded of a very beautiful scripture. " My cup runneth over, surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of  the Lord forever." - Psalm23:6

Truly touching. I felt warm all over after reading your post. I too have little loves in heaven. That is by far the worst words a person can hear, "I can't hear a heart beat." It makes me remember all too well :( I am filled with peace everyday I look into my little prince's eyes...PURE JOY. Congratulations!
