We're Pregnant!!!

Wow...just typing out that title was surreal! I still can't wrap my head around the fact that God has blessed us with this little one.

It was a surprise the day we found out, and it continues to be a surprise everyday as I watch my body change and track the progress this little one is making.
I remember when I first found out I couldn't believe it. I even waited until the next morning to take another test (just to be sure). When that next test came up positive it was just a marching band of tears flowing from my eyes. Now... I have to be honest here; those tears that were a flowin' contained every emotion I have every experienced in my life.
Love, confusion, blessed, scared, happy, nervous, etc. These tears just encompassed all those emotions.

After a few days of very strong (my husband can vouch for the very) emotions and my tear ducts drying up after all my little episodes, I finally felt at peace. Not that I wasn't excited, but in shock. I remember lying down on my bed mid-day (yes...I was exhausted) and just placed my hands on my belly, closed my eyes, and prayed. I cried out to my heavenly Father and thanked Him for this blessing and asked for his guidance as I embark on this new journey of morning sickness and bloating up like a balloon. The Lord is so good because it was at that moment that I was at peace and overwhelmed with love. There is so much peace in knowing that God is in control :)

I have SO MUCH love for this little baby growing inside of me and I feel like each day takes forever to get through. I just want to meet him/her!!!


"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made..." Psalm 139:13-14
