I’ve been wanting to write this post for a few days, but kept putting it off because I wasn’t sure how to approach it. But I’ll just tell you the news…Eric and I are having a baby! Do you remember this post I wrote about infertility last November? If you’ve read it, then you may be able to guess how much I’ve anticipated this moment. Telling all of you the good news. I wasn’t sure if it would ever happen.
It took a year and a half for us to get pregnant, which in waiting time feels like five years. We had armies of people praying for us which was absolutely incredible. And after all of my crying and worrying about all of the things that I would have to go through to get pregnant (or adopt) it came out of nowhere and surprised me. God is so good. I knew it before I got pregnant, because He comforted me and gave me hope. And I know it now because He has given me this amazing gift that I don’t deserve.
I am thirteen weeks pregnant and I’m due February 5th (just four days before mine and Harmony’s birthday!). Eric has been so awesome as I knew he would be. One of my favorite moments was when he looked at me and said “I love you guys.” He even took this picture of us at the beach:
And lastly, so many of you prayed for me and/or said kind and encouraging words when I was waiting. I can’t even say “Thank you” enough. I am so blessed to have wonderful friends like you!
