How many of these things do I have to take before I can believe ONE of them?!? Well, the results are in and I'M PREGNANT! So excited! VERY NERVOUS! We don't quite understand God's timing but we will take the "blessing"! The more I think about timing the more I realize - there is NO GOOD TIME! You just gotta go with it! If you know me - you know I can't keep something like this (or good Christmas presents) a secret! So, I'm VERY EARLY PREGNANT - 4 weeks! But pregnant non-the-least!
Funny how it all worked out! Yesterday I looked up when I should start my period - I do that occasionally when I feel like it's coming on...and it said I should have started yesterday. I held off buying a test because come on one day...well, in the mail yesterday we got a box of Emfamil - as an advertisement! I laughed to myself and thought - wouldn't that be funny! But then, I never started (and I can't stand not knowing) so that night I went to the store and bought a "Equate" test - the results didn't come up fast - I did see a negative though so I chunked it and I hate to say it was a tad relieved (only b/c of timing - June would have been GREAT). This morning still no period so I don't know what possessed me to get the thing out of the trash but I did and it was a BIG POSITIVE! So, I took another but again the results weren't fast so I stuck it in the toilet to get it more wet (disgusting I know) but I also thought - this will dilute it and it will say no and I can make it through the day without being so nervous! BUT, it said POSITIVE!! So tonight I bought a good ole EPT! Immediately positive and just to be sure I took the last "Equate" test and they all came back POSITIVE! So, I think it's pretty safe to say - We're HAVING A BABY!
(why this came in the mail I have NO IDEA - my kids are 5 and 3)
Noah is so excited and can't believe it because he said "Mom, you're not even fat!" Love that boy! But the questions are starting to come - like "how does it come out!" AAAAHHHH!! Didn't have to answer those questions when pregnant with Anna! Any clever answers? Jason is away at retreat but he is SO excited and was telling everyone he pasted - Baby #3 on the way! I could hear cheers in the background! It was funny, I did cry to him because of all the changes in our life - I felt irresponsible - but he quickly reassured me the Lord was in control, children are a blessing from the Lord, and that he (Jason) couldn't be more thrilled! I wish he could have been here (although he probably would have told me to quit taking so many tests)!
So, PRAY, PRAY, PRAY that I'm not going to get sick! With Noah I was horrible sick, Anna, a little better, so pray this is not at all! I must work the next couple of months while we raise support! The Lord is faithful and I know He will work it out - He's done it twice before!
So YAY, YAY, YAY!!
