The Update For Today
The results of the ultrasounds (internal and external) are that our baby is measuring around 8 1/2 weeks rather than the nearly 12 he should be at. There is also no sign at all of a heartbeat.
So we continue to wait. I'm leaning on Ben pretty heavily right now and I occasionally feel like a coward, but I'm very grateful he has the strength to allow me to lean on him this way.
It is a very good thing that he is this baby's daddy.

Dear Lauren & Ben, I am so sorry to see what is in this blog today.

Thank you so much, Grandma. Ben was going to tell you but then he just didn't have the heart to. I think that's why he suggested reading the blog. Somehow it's kind of tough to say on the phone, "we think we lost the baby."

You guys would not believe all the people who have told me to tell you that they love you all and are praying for you - I'll have to relay all the messages later when I come over. :)

Emily, I know you understand very well - I remember feeling so sad about the babies and knowing there wasn't much I could say to you about them. I'm so glad you have healthy Sticky Baby now! I'm sort of confined to the chair or the bed for a few days, so I have plenty of free time to talk. Just as soon as I charge my phone, anyhow...
