Our sweet little family of three will soon become a sweet family of four! Yes, that's right, we are expecting our second child! Praise the Lord! We could not be happier!
We've known that we were expecting since December 4th. I was due to have a visit from good ole aunt flow that day and just felt like I wanted to take a test. I dropped Spicer off at the sitter's house and headed to the Dollar Store to purchase the cheapest test available. I thought, if this dollar test shows I'm pregnant, then I must definitely be pregnant! Sure enough... came home... took the test... pregnant! I just knew it! I had thought I was pregnant before and been way wrong, but this time, I was RIGHT! Yay!
Due to some pregnancy complications with Spicer I immediately began blood work. I found out I was pregnant around 8:30 a.m. and was at the doctor's office around 10:00 a.m. having my blood drawn for lab work. Crazy! I've been having blood work each week for 5 weeks now (including the week we found out).
Today was a special day! Today I not only had blood work but we also got to see and hear our precious baby's heartbeat (148 bpm) via ultrasound! It was amazing! SB didn't care for it too much though. lol! She can't stand for anyone to mess with me in any 'out of the ordinary' way. Thank goodness that a couple of girls from our church work at the doctor's office. They were able to take care of her and give her some suckers! She loved that! Give her a sucker and she'll forget all her cares and worries! lol! Jared and I were then able to enjoy seeing our precious baby! The ultrasound tech said everything looked great! Praise the Lord!
Currently, I'm 7 1/2 weeks pregnant and the due date is set for Aug. 14, 2011! A summer baby! Yay! I've always thought it would be neat to have a child with a summer birthday so they could have swimming birthday parties! :) So far, this pregnancy has been wonderful! No pain and no bleeding like I had with SB. Thank you Jesus! It has been truly blessed and I believe it will be the entire way through! I've only had a touch of nausea here and there, but nothing like I had with Spicer and nothing a little medicine doesn't take care of! :) The number one symptom for me is tiredness! And I mean, TIRED! I sleep as late as Spicer and wish she would sleep later. And then I nap when she naps! It's like I just can't get enough sleep. And the smallest activities just wear. me. out! lol! :) I'm hoping at some point I can muster up the energy to get my Christmas decorations packed away! It's all good though! All part of God's way of taking care of that precious little baby growing inside! Such a marvelous miracle! :)
Before I made you in your mother's womb, I CHOSE YOU!!!! Jeremiah 1:5 --- God has already chosen this child and we know He has awesome plans for the little peanut! :)
