Sonogram Tomorrow - Hopefully

I've been having trouble finding words to share this week.  But I've wanted to share these photo cards for a while - so today is the day.  These are the cards I sent out with our very late Christmas cards.  People actually received them on Valentine's day.

Karinne's card is actually like a VERY late birth announcement card.  I added the footprints and two more photos to the image at the top of the blog.  I have been meaning to get around and add her footprints to the blog image too, but haven't gotten it done yet.  Love those little footprints!!

The other card shows each of the kids on their birthdays this year.  The older 3 posing with their birthday cakes that I made them, although you can't really see the boys' in these photos.  I was just telling my mom the other day how I wish I had made a cake for Karinne's birthday - to have had at the hospital.  I would sure love to have a photo of her with a special birthday cake I made just for her.  

So let's see - I've had some rough moments this last week - not too many but a few.  I've been trying not to stress too much about our upcoming sonogram.  We are supposed to have it tomorrow.  If the snow doesn't prevent the traveling technician from getting here.  We have a snow day from school today because we have about 4 inches on the ground already and are forecasted to get 8 to 10 with wind.  So - I'm trying not to get my hopes - or nerves - up too much in case we get pushed back AGAIN.  

Tomorrow is March 9th - another sonogram on a "9th".  (It was December 9th, 09 when Karinne was diagnosed with acrania.)  I'm really trying not to let this freak me out too much.  And then the next day is the 10th - Karinne's 10 month mark.  So hard to believe her birthday is coming up so soon.  And we'll probably hear back from my doctor that day the official news from the sonogram - once she hears back from the radiologist. 

A couple of other things have happened this week that have shaken me a bit - which I'm not ready to share here yet.  (Sorry.)  But I would really appreciate your prayers for our sonogram tomorrow (hopefully) - that it would be ALL GOOD NEWS with our new little baby.  So that Curt and I, the kids, and all our loved ones can breathe a huge sigh of relief.  And begin to make plans for the future that hopefully include this new little one getting to come home with us to stay. 


  1. Dad and I will be holding you and Curt up in prayer. And especially pray that the sonogram can be done tomorrow!!! I'm sure it will be GREAT news. Am anxious to see the next little grandbaby! Love, Mom

  2. Wow, I really like how the announcement turned out. It looks very "Karinne." ♥

    You know I will say extra prayer for you as you prepare for this day! I pray for your little one several times a day...(pretty much whenever I pray) I will pray God's peace finds you as you anticipate another milestone 9th and 10th/10th Month.

    All good news. I just know it will be.
    Praying, Praying, Praying!!

  7. Kara - I know the feelings of worry and unknown that you are having during this pregnancy. I remember them all too well when I was pregnant with Brogan. The "after" pregnancies are just not the same as the "before" pregnancies.

    May the prayers being said for your family give you the peace and comfort you need to calm the unknown during your pregnancy.

  8. Kara - Uplifting you and Curt and your little one in prayer. May God bless with you. - Kathy

  10. Prayers are with you this week, I will be anxiously awaiting the news of how the sono goes. I hope that the wind stays away so the travel tech can get in to see you. Hugs to you. Love the photo cards you created.
