Adding to the Chaos

"God has made laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh over me."

- Sarah (Genesis 21:6 ESV)

Stacy is Pregnant!

This Monday she went in for an official blood test. Since then there have been two more tests to track progress, and the doctor is pleased with how things are looking!

There are still a lot of unknowns. The next milestone is an ultrasound, coming up in a few weeks. Until then, we will not know whether both of the embryos survived. Because of the oddities in the way the 40 week gestation is measured, Stacy is actually beginning week 5 (even though the transfer was about two weeks ago). This mean that while things are going well now, there is still a higher risk of miscarriage. Normally it seems that people wait until around the end of the first trimester to announce things, but this is been anything but normal. We are elated that it has gone well so far, but still fearful that the children will not survive. Ultimately, the outcome is completely in God's control, and no amount of worry will make a difference...

"And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?"

- Jesus (Matthew 6:27 ESV)
