Please pray for my ultrasound tomorrow. I have a lot of anxiety associated with ultrasounds and going without my husband. My kids and godmother will be there. But it isn't the same as having my husband there. Back when he was deployed the first time and I was pregnant with twins I had to go into have an ultrasound alone at 11 weeks. At that appointment I found out our babies had died.  While I know that this baby is alive (I have seen them alive before at the 15 week ultrasound and feel the kicks right now). I persist in worrying that "something" is wrong. This isn't healthy, I need to enjoy every aspect of this pregnancy but I mostly end up looking back at the miscarriages and loses we have had and worrying. I want to find more joy in my pregnancy and focus less on what I don't have (my husband) and how uncomfortable I am and focus more on the gift of this child. Anxiety is something I always fight. But in pregnancy (especially with my husband deployed) it is worse. And this is the ultrasound that could tell us boy or girl! I am halfway there!

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Thank you for the prayers. Ultrasound went extremely well and we have a very healthy baby girl growing inside of me. Smiley Her two big sisters and big brother are looking forward to meeting her in 4 months. Everyone was sure this was a boy, but this is definitely a girl. Biggest sis is a little disappointed not to have a little brother coming. But she is getting more and more excited as time goes by.
