Baby Baby Baby!
I didn't believe the nurse when she confirmed that yes, I was pregnant! In fact, I asked her three times if she was for real, then I couldn't stop crying. Finally!! God is faithful! Josh and I are so excited to be parents! I have been feeling sick for a good month. I thought it was my medicine, b/c it usually makes me sick for a couple weeks when I start taking it. But, since I had been feeling like this for a while, I decided maybe I should go to my family doctor and see what was up. I made the appointment, then I thought, I better take a pregnancy test, b/c I know the doctor is going to ask if I did that, so I might as well rule it out. After two years of disappointment, I had started doing everything I could to protect myself from that pain, so I just kept telling myself that there was no way I was pregnant, it just wasn't possible. I took 3 tests, and all were very faintly positive. I still didn't let myself believe that I could be pregnant. However I did cancel the appointment and made a new appointment with my "baby doctor". The doctor did a sonogram and said that everything looks perfect. I am 8 weeks, and he estimated my due date to be around April 6th. I am so full of joy and just ecstatic that this is happening! I want to thank everyone that has been praying for me (don't stop now!) b/c your encouragement and your prayers have really been a light during this time. Josh is so cute. He likes to pat my belly and tell me that he loves both of us. =) I just know he's going to be an awesome daddy! Oh, and the shirt I have on in the picture is one that he bought for me to wear while visiting family, to see if they would catch on. They didn't until I put the sonogram picture in the middle of the table, but oh well! =) We have had so much fun telling our family and friends the good news. Everyone is just so happy for us and there are usually a lot of happy tears that fall. I'm off to veg on the couch now b/c I am SO tired!!! =)
