Infertility Confessions - Part 6 - Doctor's Visits and Heartbeats

So at four weeks pregnant, we had to go in for blood work just to check the numbers. 

I thought we would get an ultrasound at 7 weeks, but to our luck, we got one at 6 weeks. 

Google can be your friend or your own worst enemy.

I tried to use it as my friend. 

I knew at 6 weeks that we could see heartbeats, but not always. 

We didn't even know how many we had at this point either, but I had not shown any signs of miscarrying. 

I can remember pulling up to the doctor and just wanting to throw up, because I had no idea what to expect and was not expecting the best.

O' you of little faith.

So we enter the room, and our precious Christine is there as well.

We were all on pins and needles.

It seemed like it took forever for the ultrasound, but on the screen were two precious little heartbeats.

We could see them and hear them.

The little bodies had huge heartbeats!

There was not a dry eye in the room.

From then on, we had great doctor's visits every single time.

It was amazing to see these sweet babies grow before our very eyes.

It has been so much fun watching movements and personalities emerge.

At every visit, Baby B seemed to be our wild child, while Baby A was laid back.

At 9 weeks, Baby B even waved at us!

We loved finding out that we were having a boy and a girl. Baby A is our sweet Wesley and Baby B is our sweet Selah.

To say that we have already started a photo collection is an understandment.

We have memories from every visit with the latest one being the non-stress test where the laid back Wesley was so good and his heartbeat was steady.

Wild Selah waited until the nurses left to wiggle her way out of the monitor as we watched and laughed causing the nurse to come in and ask if we were having a party.

She finally found Selah and put her back on the monitor where she said until the end.

Through this journey, we have rediscovered that GOD is amazing always, and that His story for us is perfect in the good and the bad.

We are so blessed to be apart of His story and hope that this story will help others who are on an infertility journey.

That has always been our prayer.

Thank you family and friends for sharing in this journey with us.

We cannot thank you enough for your prayers and encouraging words.

We cannot wait to celebrate with you these sweet blessings from GOD!



  1. I spent my morning reading your blog. I love ya so much Haven and am so happy for you, Ken, Wesley and Selah! I can't wait to met those two cuties! When you are feeling up to it you will have to come to TT. I even have a tiny little kiddie pool they could have some fun in!

  2. I came across your blog via Pinterest. I was looking up burlap curtain DIY projects. I loved your tutorial on the curtains. I saw the link below that shared your story. I must say reading your testimony truly touched and blessed my heart. I realize this blog is from a few years back, but I do hope and pray your family is still blessed, and I am sure they are! Thank you for sharing! Be blessed!!
