I know I have been on a hiatus the past week, but for good reason... I guess it's time for me to reveal what I have been keeping a secret for almost a month...
I AM HAVING A BABY!!!!
You read that right! I am pregnant! :) And I am BEYOND thrilled. Hubs and I are ecstatic really!! If you could see how big my smile is right now you would get just how PUMPED we are!!! We feel truly blessed that God is going to use us as parents!! I always had a fear that I wouldn't be able to be a mom, but God's plans for me are in place! And I couldn't be more happy!
I am 7 weeks and 1 day today and the little one is due October 11th!!
I have been so blessed. So far, I have had NO sickness. NONE AT ALL!! And I really hope that continues!!
I had to keep this a secret for a little while for several reasons. Right after we found out, I had a little bleeding. My doctor was afraid it might be a tubal pregnancy. So we had LOTS of blood work and testing done and it turns out everything is fine! Well really, everything is great!! GOD IS GOOD! I had complete faith that God's will would be done and still do!! He is in complete control of this situation and I am so thankful to know that!! And have that peace! We heard the heartbeat for the first time last Thursday. And can I just say how AMAZING that was!! It was beating so fast. I was just smiling with tears in my eyes and laughing. It was just precious!!
We decided to start trying back in January because we thought it might take a few months. Well it didn't. It took one time! :) So we knew there was a chance. Well on January 28th I realized that I was missing something... my period! So I took a test and it was very clear to me that I was pregnant. Hubs and I then went to the store to buy 4 more. All in all I took 6 tests and all said YES!! YES!! YES!!! We were beyond thrilled, but honestly a little shocked that it happened so quickly!! :)
I know there are lots of questions I need to answer and I will try to do my best to not leave out any details :)
We told our parents last Sunday and began telling our close friends last week. The cat is pretty much out of the bag and our little Beanie (as we are referring to him/her as) is healthy, so I wanted to share it with you girls now!
The way we told our parents was I had little onsie's made that said "Grammy & Paw Love Me" (what my parents will be called) and "Nana and Papa Love Me" (what Hubs parents will be called) and we presented them to them in bags and told them it was a Valentine's surprise. We also included pictures of Dansby and Daizy holding signs that said "I am going to be a big sister/brother"! I had my camera ready to video when they opened them and well my mom flipped out. We told my parents at their home that Sunday afternoon and then told Hubs parents on our way back in town at their home. It was great to see their reactions. My mom and dad both cried. It was so precious! My dad never cries! Needless to say, my mom has been dying to get to the shopping and already has done some. She is a shopoholic! :)
I am going to post a video below of my mom's reaction. I warn you... if you are at work, turn your volume down to low :) She yells loud :)
I am so excited to be sharing this journey with you all. It will be very personal for me to share but it will be great to have all of you to get advice from and have your support :) Hugs to you all!
