Well things will be changing in our house in the Spring. The long prayed for baby will be arriving. After four years of waiting and praying we found out we are expecting. After feeling crappy in general for over a month I have felt sick when I ate, sick when I didn't eat and I was so drained I couldn't function; plus there were some other issues....so into the doctor I went. It was not my normal doctor and he kept saying, "well hun, it sounds like you could be pregnant." I let him know that he was surely mistaken and that it couldn't just happen and we would find out on Monday when my blood tests came back. Well Monday morning I get a voicemail from my regular doctor telling me the blood test shows I am pregnant! I couldn't believe it so I called him back and the office staff handed the phone right to him and he confirmed it. The first call was of course to Nate and he was speechless for sometime and asked am I sure? Of course I am sure I told him, I checked twice with the doctor! So we went into celebration mode! The doctor wanted me to come in asap for an ultrasound since there were some issues (nothing serious) and got me in that very day. So we saw the baby bean on that night and all is healthy and it was so very cool to see the heartbeat and everything else about the baby. It just amazed us and made it real, kinda. It still seems surreal and we are so very happy that God has blessed us with this child. We just ask for prayer for a healthy baby and that I keep up my energy. I have learned the key to my feeling well is small amounts of food through out the day and a nap after work. Whoever thought of "morning sickness" is very inaccurate; it is all day sickness! But I won't complain even if I am sick, I am just so very happy to finally be pregnant. Please keep us all in your prayers!
