our miracle


I’m nearly brought to tears trying to describe my love for You.  My Healer, Anointer, Savior...My Rock.  The one and only thing in my life that will never change is You.  You walked on water, gave sight to the blind, healed the sick and rose from the dead – there is nothing You cannot do.  And yet, in all of Your Glory and Power, You still care for the desires of my little heart.  You love me so much.  Through all of my sin and failure, You love me.  The Creator of all the Earth loves all of us.  What an amazing feeling.

I’m pregnant!!!!  Our sweet little baby will arrive this September :)  And Jesus orchestrated this in such a way that the glory and praise can go nowhere else except to Him!  A miracle, just as it says in the Bible. God hears our prayers.  He listens to our wants and desires.  And He keeps His promises.  What a mighty God You are!  I will never be able to thank You enough, Father.  I promise, Lord, that I will raise this precious baby to know You and will help lead them to love You.  We prayed for this child, and You granted the desires of hearts.  In Your time.  And we commit this sweet baby to You, before he or she is even born.  This baby is Yours!  And we will love and protect them for their time here on earth.  I already love this child with all my heart.

Our precious miracle is due to arrive on September 21st :)  Praise the Lord!

I'm sure no one reads this blog anymore, especially since my last post was in 2012 (!!!)....but I'm going to start blogging again.  And this is really just for me to remember my pregnancy and be able to document it :)  So hopefully I will start doing weekly updates on this sweet little baby!

Size of Baby: According to What to Expect, our sweet baby is the size of a large plum!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have not kept up with my weight AT ALL - we don't even have a scale at home.  I guess I need to invest in one :)

Maternity Clothes: My pants are super tight and uncomfortable...I bought the Be Band from Target, but it slips off and doesn't stay I assume maternity pants are in my near future!

Gender: No idea! :)

Belly Button In/Out: In

 Stretch Marks: Not yet

Labor Signs: Definitely not

Movement: I've been feeling stretching/pulling sensations in my uterus, but I don't think it's the baby moving?  Not sure what that feels like?

Sleep: I'm so grateful that I've had a fairly easy first trimester.  I only wake up once a night to use the bathroom and haven't really had any sickness.  Just EXTREME fatigue :)

What I miss: Absolutely nothing!

What I am looking forward to: Finding out the baby's gender!  I'm thinking girl :)  Last ultrasound at 10 weeks the heart rate was 164.

Cravings/Aversions: I haven't really had any aversions.  I've been craving apples and strawberries.

Symptoms: Super tired, thirsty all the time, bloating, constant bathroom trips, boobs are huge, start feeling a tad sick if I go too long without eating.

Best Moment This Week: Hitting the 12 week milestone!
