There Is Just One More Super Important Thing To Say

We are having a baby!!

I am PREGNANT!!  Really, truly pregnant!!!!

So..let me tell you the whole story.  After our last miscarriage in March I was pretty SAD.  God could not let those last 2 babies be my last.  Pete and I talked a lot about baby #6 after those sad days..(actually I cried and cried and Pete ENDURED). 


 Pete felt pretty strongly that we should just cool it in the baby pursuit department for a short while because we would be moving REALLY soon.  What exactly does that mean "cool it in the baby dept" you ask??  For us that means..stay open but not actively pursue good timing...if you know what I mean.
OK!!  I was on board.  I know how much energy a move takes and the last thing this family needs is a mama with no energy...or worse a mama having a miscarriage..AGAIN!!

We went through April and all was good....May came and we were so busy that timing was never right..or so I thought...
Come the end of May I am noticing that the cycle is getting a little longer than usual.  And just because I like to be prepared I always have a full 3 pack of pregnancy tests on hand.  I got a faint pink line and I instantly prayed....

"Please God..let me keep this one!!"  Feeling a little nervous Pete thought we should keep this pregnancy quiet a little longer than my usual 10 minutes of silence. I agreed, which is unlike me to not want to tell the world...good or bad.  But something just felt right about keeping this to ourselves.
I just prayed everyday to really be pregnant. I was able to focus on the move and just hope in my heart.  We got through May and headed into June and things were looking good.  This time I felt different..worse, sicker...which made me feel better.
And now I am 10 weeks pregnant..I feel pretty awful.  I am tired and completely unable to complete full thoughts without feeling like I am going to throw up.  I could not be happier!!  I could have thought of better timing for the first trimester to take place..but I would not trade a day of struggle for any other time!!

So..just to recap...
I am having a baby!!!  I am really having another baby....

  6. OH! I'm so thrilled for you. I felt so bad for you this spring... I will keep you in my prayers. I have a little prayer book for mothers that I use quite often... in it there is a prayer to the Blessed Mother for those who are expecting. I will be saying it for you. God bless!

  9. I knew it! When you left, I told the kids, "I bet Mrs. Melnick is expecting another baby." We are so happy for you, and pray for good health for mama and baby all along the way.
