Amazing, wonderful, happy news!

Okay, so I can't wait one more week...I'm pregnant! We actually found out on Christmas Day. With all of the trouble we've had with pregnancies, we decided to wait a little bit before announcing it to the whole world(till I hit 12 weeks) but I hit 11 weeks today and I can't keep it in! Lol. I'm not a very patient person. So, now ya know!!!


Introducing our little blob...

Okay, so this sonogram was done about a month ago, now he/she has actual legs and arms:) I was so nervous the day of the sonogram. We've had two pregnancies, as you know, over the past year and a half that were blighted ovum(sac, but no baby) so when we saw the baby and the little heartbeating it was one of the happiest moments of my life. I cried right there. It was an answer to a very very heartfelt prayer. Over the past year or so, I had prayed many times for a baby and for a healthy pregnancy. But in December, I had a day where I just felt desperate and sad. I was in tears and I couldn't stop crying. I knelt down by my bed and prayed the hardest, most heart-felt, most sincere, most difficult prayer of my life, basically begging for a child. I had never prayed like that. And when I finished, I had a feeling of comfort and I knew everything was going to be fine. Sure enough, the following week, we found out I was in fact pregnant:) And honestly, we hadn't been "trying" even(I was feeling a little burnt out from trying for what seemed like forever, with only disappointment. I decided overthinking it was just stressing me out and upsetting me, so we left it in the Lord's hands). It was truly a miracle to me. My testimony of prayer has increased immensely. Ever since then I've made it a goal to better my relationship with my Heavenly Father and talk to Him more often. He is there for me and loves me. I knew it before, but I know it in a different way now.


This morning I had an appointment and we actually got to hear that little heartbeat. It was a wonderful sound! We are so excited for this pregnancy and to meet this new little person in a few months. My due date is September 1(right after my birthday! kinda cool!) Please keep us in your prayers. . .

Holly I am so very happy for you all. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. I have a strong testimony of prayer myself, and I know that prayers are answered. Not always in the way we want or in the time we want, but always in the way that is best for us. Sometimes the answer is now, and sometimes the answer is a resounding YES!! Love and hugs coming your way from across the sea!! xxoo

Holly, reading your post bring me back to the day's when Bobby and I were trying to have a baby. We had been trying for just about a year to get pregnant and we had been praying, but each month, when I got my monthly gift, we would be so disappointed. One day, I was working at home and I felt sad, and I went to our bed and got down on my hands and knees and prayed, prayed hard, it was one of those sobbing prayers. Much like you, I had never prayed that hard in my life. I remember when I got up off my knees, I felt a peace about the situation and knew that God had a plan, we just had to be patient. The very next month, I was late - one day late to be exact, and I knew that I was pregnant. Nine months later our pride and joy Logan Cade was born. God is so good, isn't he! I am so happy for you guys and will continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy!
