The cat's out of the bag...
We've spilled the beans...
We're PREGNANT again!
Blankenship Baby #2 will debut in early February!
Having gone through three prior miscarriages, we wanted this fifth pregnancy to be bathed in prayer from the very beginning. We started leaking the news to our prayer warrior family and friends as soon as we found out at the end of May, just after Jackson's 2nd birthday party.
Here are a few of the "announcements" we used:
We've had a little bit of a scare already with this baby. The first ultrasound showed a strong heartbeat and a very wiggly baby who waved a hand at us, but also revealed some subcutaneous hemorrhaging near the uterus which concerned the doctor. A second ultrasound the following week revealed that the hemorrhaging was dissipating and the outlook is good. We're just praying now for it to go away completely and for this active baby to keep growing strong and healthy!
Boy or girl, we're thrilled that God has answered our prayer for another little one. We have experienced a supernatural peace throughout this pregnancy that we know is a direct result of so many prayers beyond offered up on our behalf, literally around the globe. God is so good, so faithful, and so generous. We're overwhelmed and overjoyed.
Thank you in advance to everyone who will be praying alongside us throughout these next 30 weeks.
