Is that a plus sign?!


Hi everyone! I mentioned yesterday that I wasn't feeling well...yeah...I thought it was because I was either dealing with cysts again or about to get a nasty visit from that monthly visitor which was overdue (since I'm VERY irregular I didn't think twice about it). Apparently that was not the case. After 3 positive tests.... I think it's safe to say that ... I am pregnant! I honestly wasn't sure I'd ever be able to see that little plus sign or be able to say those words...I had completely prepared myself to someday adopt...(I'd still like to someday). It's still such a shock...after seven years of trying off and on and so many negative tests....we're almost having a hard time believing it's true. Part of me is so very excited and part of me is terrified. You think about it for so long and now finally here it is?! As far as I can tell by my calendar and the last cycle I had I should be about 5 weeks along, making this little raisin a November baby. I know it's still early to tell everyone...most people wait until after three months, but a dear fellow blogger made a very beautiful point when she announced her pregnancy not long ago. It's a baby worthy to be known about and loved and prayed for from the moment it is created. Now more than ever that comment touches my heart and I agree with you wholeheartedly Kirsten!!!
I'm praying that this little baby in my belly is growing healthy and strong and will be carried to term! There is history of miscarriage in my family so the fear is definitely there but I am choosing to believe that no matter what happens GOD is in control and I know there are so many family members out there that are beyond excited and praying for this little one already!

  4. Thanks ladies! I wish I could give you all hugs too! I'm still getting used to the idea and I have so many questions and it's almost overwhelming because I've never done this before ;0) Of course we're thrilled...just weren't sure this was going to happen for us. I'm trying my best not to worry and just rest...I've been SOOOO tired!

  10. YAY! I'm soo excited for you! Waiting for the good things in life is like waiting for spring after a looong winter, if there wasn't a winter when spring came God would not get as much of the Glory He deserves! He has blessed you in your waiting and I pray that as you continue to wait for you little one that He will continue to bless you! You will be in my prayers!
