The Scariest Moment of My Pregnancy!

My Very First Prenatal Exam

Shortly after finding out I was pregnant, my husband and I joyfully skipped off to my first prenatal appointment. We were both so excited and ready to see our very first baby, in our very first sonogram, AND, as my cousin had informed me, hear our very first baby’s heartbeat!

I know now I was angry with God although I wouldn’t have admitted it at the time. Why wasn’t He letting my husband and I have children?

Our Little Dinosaur - Pregnancy and Parenthood

“Our Little Dinosaur”? This endearing term refers to my son. The name was coined by my husband (aka Lil Dino Daddy) a few weeks before he was born.
