Disappointment

Well, today we went in for a viability scan to hear a heartbeat for the new baby but the doctor could not see signs of a viably pregnancy. His best assessment was that we had what he called a molar pregnancy. (Don’t really know if I am typing that right or not) Basically he said that my lining was thickening like a normal pregnancy and that the embryo had attached and was still attached but that it did not continue to develop properly. He said that it only happens about 1 in every 2,000 pregnancies. So we have to go in for more testing and probably have surgery to have some tissue removed. Needless to say we are very sad today and are having to rethink the way our life is going to be laid out at least when it comes to family and size. I know that the Lord is watching out for us and everyone has different trials so we will just try to endure this part of ours well. Thanks for everyone’s prayers as we went thought this process. Better luck next time I guess.

Hey-your blog is so cute! I just found it! I went by your new store on Thursday, but you were not around and I don't think it is quite done-for some reason I thought you were moving in on Wednesday! Anyway, you are just so awesome and strong Manon, and I am so glad we have remained friends! You are a huge example to me!
