Clarification

So I posted on Facebook yesterday that I was having a bad day and this resulted in a lot of people worrying and wondering about me so I figured I ought to clarify things some.  I wouldn't typically go too much into all this but since I already announced the twin thing on the blog and Facebook world I figured I better follow up with the details.

Yesterday I went and saw my dad at his office to get an ultrasound of the babies and after a few minutes he told me that something was wrong with one of the babies.  It was smaller than the other one and the brain wasn't developing like it should.  Although it still has a heartbeat this one will likely stop developing soon and then just be absorbed.  I am sad that I won't be having twins now (he said there is a tiny chance it could correct itself some and then the child would be born with a severe birth defect but that is pretty rare and will most likely just be fatal before birth). 
The other baby looks to be healthy and strong so we are trying to be grateful for that but I am very disappointed and sad about my other baby.  Its especially hard since I am still carrying both of them so while I am still pregnant with live twins, I am only going to have one baby.  Anyway, I hadn't realize so many people would read so much into my little Facedbook post yesterday so I thought I better answer the questions...
Pray for my other baby to be alrgiht as I am very excited to be pregnant and I count this pregnancy to be a complete miracle.  I am very blessed and thank you guys for your support!

BLAST! That just plain sucks! But, everything happens for a reason. The same thing happened to my cousin and it turned out in the end if she would have carried twins the whole way it might of killed her because of the complications she had. Not that that helps, but Heavenly Father has a plan. We'll keep you in our prayers! And congrats again on the miracle pregnancy!!!

Don't feel like you should have to feel "ok" with this. It is "ok" to be sad. It is "ok" to be mad. It hurts, and that is "ok" too. I love you. Call me if you want to talk.

Im sorry that we missed you the night you were here in AZ- it would have been SO fun to see you. Hopefully we will get that chance sooner than later. Secondly, congratulations about your pregnancy and at the same time I am sorry for complication with one of your babies. It has got to be a really hard position to be in. Excited for a new baby, grieving one baby, and still hoping that all will turn out alright in the end. I Just want you to know that I admire you and you are in our prayers.
