What happens when everything falls into place for me...both kids are in school, I have a great job to go to, things are pretty stress-free and going smoothly? Well, I end up pregnant, that's what! Talk about a surprise!
Two weeks after starting my new job, we found out that we were expecting again. I truly believe God has a sense of humor, and I know he probably laughs at me on a daily basis. He has shown me over and over that my plans are not always His plans and no matter how hard I try to plan out every little detail in my life, He is the one in control. After going through the loss of our baby in February and dealing with the hormone problems that came from that, I had pretty much made up my mind NOT to try to get pregnant again right now. God had a different plan in mind however, and despite our best efforts, we found ourselves pregnant with baby #3 (technically 4 I should say). What an exciting, happy surprise-and a bit scary too! I, of course, was immediately nervous and fearful, but if I've learned nothing else throughout the past few months, it's that I have to place my faith and hope in God and give it all to Him. And that's just what I did. I didn't even schedule a Dr. appointment until I was 11 weeks along because I knew whatever was going to happen would happen.
The Dr. appointment went great. I felt so tremendously blessed when I saw this:
And hearing that precious heartbeat...oh, I loved every minute of it! I got to see little arms and legs moving around everywhere! I hate this pic is from the back and you can't see those sweet legs kicking. It's safe to say I'm in love all over again, and I can't wait to meet this sweet little one that I consider such a gift.
Our girls are beyond excited. They have prayed every single night for a baby brother (and we continually remind them to pray for a healthy BABY lol). I don't think they realize what they're asking for when they say brother, but if it turns out to be a little boy, and he is terrorizing them in a couple of years, I will definitely be sure to remind them that they asked for him!
Baby #3 is due March 20th, and we are counting down the days!
