I can't believe it

I can't even believe it. I entered a contest for a virtual baby shower worth $2600 over at Accidental Mommies, and I am one of the 10 finalists out of 270 entries. I don't know why they thought that I was so special. But, thank you so much. You have no idea how much this means to me.

Since July when we had a miscarriage our lives have been kind of upside down. It really crushed us. On September we found out that we are expecting again. Although we were very excited we were a little scared at the same time. Everything was going smoothly until last Tuesdays 8 wk ultrasound where they discovered that I have a subchorionic hemorrhage. Which is basically a blood clot between the placenta and the uterine wall. This was devastating news to us. I can't even imagine going through another miscarriage only 5 short months later. So far, our strong little baby is doing well. He/She has a very strong heartbeat and is growing everyday. We had originally decided not to tell anyone about our pregnancy so we didn't have to go through the pain of telling everyone bad news. However, at this point we need all the prayers we can get. I go back to the doctor on Wednesday for another ultrasound to see what the blood clot is doing. Hopefully, it is no longer there and we will have a baby to hold in June!! Please pray for us and our unborn baby. If we do win I'm sure he/she will enjoy all of the wonderful prizes!!

Thank you so much Accidental Mommies for choosing me to be one of your finalists. You have no clue how much this means to me and my family.
