Multitude Monday

holy experience
It's been a while since I've had an opportunity to participate in the Multitude Monday. Not that I haven't had things to be grateful for -- we certainly have! -- but I always seem to busy to write them. Today, finally, I have one blessing that I've been waiting nearly forever to share with you:
#56: The gift of new life...
We're having a baby!
I'm 9 weeks along and feeling... well... I'm 9 weeks along :). We're due in early May.
We decided to delay starting prenatal treatment this time because there's nothing doctors can do in the first few weeks anyway. "Stop drinking." "Stop smoking." Things I don't need to hear anyway. It's all up to God -- all the way through. My practitioner (insurance-selected...) recommends starting treatment at 6 weeks or as soon as you find out... we convinced her to delay until 10. Not a huge bump, but significant to us. So, on Columbus day, we'll go in to see and hopefully hear our little explorer and how he/she is growing and finding the way to us. One more week! God willing, everything's normal and we're on the right track.
Happy Monday, and may you be blessed!

I knew it! I had a feeling your excitement couldn't be *just* the house. :) So therefore, I am not really suprised but am INCREDIBLY HAPPY for you both!!!! 9 weeks! How exciting! And what perfect timing for the house purchase as well! You will have a few months to prepare and get everything lovely and nice for the new wee one. :) Yayy!! Praise the Lord!!

Ditto to what Sarah Jane said about suspecting this. I am SO happy for you! I have been hoping and praying for this for months. Now I can pray for a safe and uncomplicated pregnancy! Yay! I bet you are counting down days until you get past the point where you lost your first dear little one. I did, this time around. I thought I'd stop worrying then. I didn't. From the positive pregnancy test to today, I have been struggling to trust, even though I know Jesus and Mary are keeping our baby in their special care. I hope you are finding it easy to relax and enjoy pregnancy.

Congratulations, Jenny! I wondered if that might be part of your excitement, but I didn't want to ask. I'm so happy for you! I'm praying for health for you and the new little one :-)
