Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart.

Well it is still a bit of a shock and totally amazing, but . . . .
we are PREGNANT!  


Lilypie Pregnancy tickers


For those of you who have been following my blog you know we have battled with infertility (read previous posts about our battle HERE) and recently went to the fertility specialist (GO HERE to read about that) to hopefully start the process one more time to try for baby #3 only to get the sad news that the doctor was unwilling to work with me do to my BMI and the statistical probability of my being able to get pregnant at 41 with my medical complications. Well that was on February 8th . . . . .

And THIS was my facebook status after that appointment.  

"I am a child of a BIG God, He watches over me, He knows my heart, He knows my fears, and He shares my tears. Most of all He picks me UP, He sets me to RIGHT, and He fills me up with His Love and COMFORT. My God has a plan for me and I am faithful to remain in it."


Fast forward to 7:30 yesterday morning, I realized at that point I was about 2 weeks late on starting my cycle, and although that wasn't unusual for me because my cycle is OFTEN irregular, I decided to take a home pregnancy test.  My expectation was that like many times in the past when I was late, this test would be negative, so I was already thinking negative.  However, just before I took the test I paused in my thinking and realized I was doubting God's power again to work beyond my medical circumstances and I said out loud.  "All things are possible through Christ Jesus."  I took the test and to my complete surprise two pink lines showed up RIGHT AWAY.

I OF COURSE called my husband at work, they couldn't find him, he wasn't at his workstation, so I left a message for him to call.  I then called my OB to schedule an appointment for a confirmation test, which they scheduled for this morning at 9:15 and YES we are OFFICIALLY PREGNANT.  But back to the shower . . . . .my husband finally called back while I was in the shower and this is how the conversation went.

ME  "Hi Daddy"

MoG  "Hi Daddy?"

ME  "Hi Daddy"

MoG  "Hi Daddy? Why are you saying Hi Daddy?"

ME (not done playing the game) "Hi Daddy"

MoG  BIG Pause . . . . "Are you saying what I think your saying?"

ME "Yep I am saying what you think I am saying"

MoG "How is this Possible?  I mean I know how it's possible, but how when?"

ME "February 6th, so I am 5 weeks and 4 days"

MoG Silence on the other end of the line "I think I am going to start crying here"

ME  "Well don't do that people will suspect and I don't want to tell people until we have it confirmed and you CAN'T tell George yet.  I told you I was praying for this" (George is a friend of ours from church and knows many of our friends and family)

We talked for a few more moments but I needed to get out of the shower and get ready for a different doctor appointment I had yesterday.  After finishing up I texted my sister April while I was getting dressed and told her the news, because after David I wanted her to be the first to know.  I of course swore her to secrecy, she called me as soon as she got the text, and after confirming what she read was true, she said she wanted to come and pray with me after she got out of school.  So around 2:30 yesterday afternoon my sister came and prayed peace, health, strength, and fountains of praises over me and to the Lord.

I need you to understand something here.  I had limited God's power in the situation of dealing with our infertility.  Until a few months ago when my pastor's wife Tatiana had prayed over me and asked the Father to bless us with another child IN SPITE of my medical condition and without the need of medications, I had never thought of God allowing us to get pregnant on our own.  I had boxed God's power and limited it to what I thought He was capable of accomplishing in the face of my medical fertility history.  After that moment of prayer I changed my heart, my mindset and my faith in God.  I believed He was capable of so much more then I could even dream.  So when I had gotten the disappointing news that the fertility specialist wouldn't work with us I was at first very sad, but then I realized, if this is God's plan then He WILL accomplish what He desires to do with us.  So I did not restart my birth control, in fact I had stopped taking it in preparation for the fertility doctor appointment on January 22nd when my last cycle had started.  And I KNOW this is going to be TMI, but because we were preparing to start fertility treatment, I had marked the last time we had sex on my personal calendar in case the doctor had asked, so I KNOW when we conceived.   Just so happens that was the day before the entire family was sick with double ear infection for Jon, Bronchitis for Davey and I, and a bad cold for my MoG, and then we all got the stomach bug (or at least I thought I had, but now maybe it was something else for me HA).

So that brings us current on the journey of HOW we found out that God has performed a mighty miracle in our lives for the 3rd time and in the face of medical probabilities saying I had like a 3-5% chance of getting pregnant even with their help. I will say it again, my God doesn't see me as a statistic, my God sees me One on One and He deals with me according to His plan.

This is what was on the radio when I got in my car just hours after finding out the shocking news yesterday.

  "He can give you even more then you asked for or imagined" 

Amen Say it AGAIN!

This begins my pregnancy journal, our due date is October 29th
