Eight words...It is a boy....God is soooooooooo good!!!!!

That's right folks...I never ever thought the day would come that I could tell you that David and I are finally going to have a little one! However, it has! David and I will welcome a baby on June 20, 2010! About 9 more weeks! But guess what? It's not through adoption....I AM PREGNANT! 31 weeks today!!! Now...pick up your jaws and begin the questions! What? When? How come you didn't tell us sooner?

Well the sights and sounds and images of the last week will have to be shared with you as I have time to process it all. I want to share the story with you in a very real way. So for now I will just share a few details.

Because I constantly felt bloated and David said I was moody I took a pregnancy test on a whim. I hadn't had any morning sickness and because of a medical condition; missed cycles are nothing! It's just par for the course. So that was not an indicator! When I took the test on a whim it was so funny becasue David and I had spent the weekend putting hardwood in our bedroom. It was a Saturday night and we took a late night trip to the grocery to get something for dinner. We had the whole "Do you think I am pregnant talk?" In one million years I never ever thought I would be. I have used those sticks more than once with no result. So David went in and bought the big deal. I came home...opened it and did the business at hand. In 10 seconds the plus popped up and my eyes popped out of my head. I scrambled to read that piece of paper not believing my eyes! I ran into the kitchen and not very gracefully told David I thought I was pregnant. Then I called my sister who is a nurse and said what is the liklihood of false positives?

I made a doctr's appointment on Monday. They said come on Friday. Friday rolls around and the doctor was out sick!! What? No way! So anyway, I had to wait until the following Wednesday which was last wednesday. When she measured me she said you measure 26 weeks! WHAT?? Can't be! That's too far along! When I had my ultrasound that afternoon and they really were able to measure the baby I measured 30 weeks and 3 days! I could have rolled off the table! You want to praise God! Jump off the table! Cry in joy and in panic! So yes folks, we are having a baby!

We are in orbit right now and I have so much more to share with you when there is more time. I want to take my time and tell God's story carefully as it has been laid on my heart! Thank you for all your thoughts, prayers and encouragements over the years! God was faithful when I was not and I can't wait to tell you the story of His glory demonstrated through me! Stay tuned! Wish I could saee your faces! :)

I have a friend who didn't know until she was getting migraines at what turned out to be 10 weeks along. Man, am I jealous about no morning sickness--no way could I have not known, LOL. Wow, this is so amazing! Little boys are incredible:-) As for the short prep time, it is probably almost a good thing. Waiting 36 weeks is an eternity, and all that worrying about what could go wrong. We prepared for Andrew in just a couple days, and he turned out all right, so you'll do just fine. Anyway, congrats!!!
