I am so excited to finally share our news that we have tried to hide for a while now, but it is getting increasingly more difficult to keep it a secret. A couple of months ago, I started feeling really sick. I thought it was probably stress related. I had lost a few pounds and wasn’t really sure what was going on. Then it hit me. I was a week late. I took a pregnancy test audit was negative. I once again chalked it up to stress and decided to move on. Two weeks later, I threw up before church. I felt awful and immediately my mind was racing. What on earth was going on with me? I took another test the next day…positive. Another little blessing along the way! To say this news knocked Ryan and I off our feet is a bit of an understatement.
The shock of our new little angel has finally started wearing off and we are starting to get really excited. This was not our timing at all. We had planned to have more children, but wanted to wait another year or two so that we could focus on our house (moving, decorating, investing in furniture), but once again, God had another plan for us. He has bee teaching me a lot over the last couple of months. I have learned that life is constantly changing and it is easier sometimes to not always have a plan and instead go with the flow. That is what we are doing. We are trusting God and His timing. We are also going to have to invest in a larger SUV, so any suggestion, mommas?
I feel so relieved to finally share this news with you all. I hope this helps explain one of my hiatus from blogland lately. I have been really sick this time around, but have started having more good days than bad as far as that goes. Now that I am feeling better and summer has arrived in Alabama, I am looking forward to getting back after it. I am just over 15 weeks along and we are due the first week of November! I am so excited to meet our little turkey baby!
