a Christmas blessing

19 Dec

After many, many negative pregnancy tests this year, I’m happy to report that I’m looking at three, wonderfully positive ones. Can you believe it? Captain J and I will be parents. I can’t describe how happy this makes me. I wake up every morning and remember all over again. It brings a smile to my face (and sometimes some not so happy faces as I have experienced a little sickness but not much). Perhaps I’m premature in announcing this, but I’m just so elated. I have gone back and forth debating on whether I should talk about my experiences in TTC (trying to conceive) on this blog and with friends and family. For the most part, I kept my worries to myself and didn’t express anything of the sort here or elsewhere. There were months of thinking, “I wonder if something is wrong with me physically”, “I wonder if God doesn’t see me as a fit parent”, etc. Captain J and I tried our best to keep positive attitudes, repeating to ourselves that God would bless us when we were ready.

I’m grateful that the time has come for this blessing. We’ve prayed a lot for this life inside me and I have no doubt that it came at the right time. After all- our furniture hasn’t shown up yet so that will be a lot of boxes, chairs, and other household goods that I won’t have to move around when they finally do. 😉 J is babying me already and I’m just going to soak it all up!

We notified J’s parents first because we would be making them grandparents for the first time. Very excited exchanges evolved from that conversation as you can imagine. Then we were off to talk to my blended family: Mom & Joe and Dad & Julie. It feels so amazing to know that this baby will be so loved by many people.

I should have more of an update next week after a visit to Doc.

What a wonderful Christmas blessing. Thanks be to God!

    What wonderful news! Congratulations to the both of you. I’m sure that you will hear many, many times that parenthood is a blessing, but nothing can prepare you for the absolute joy that comes from holding, loving, and teaching your own child. Prayers for a happy and healthy pregnancy are being sent to you from TN! 🙂

    I am so very happy for the two of you. I also know what it feels like to worry and wonder if there might be something physically wrong or is it God’s will to have children? Every time I feel baby Liam moving around in my belly and every morning when Gabriel runs into my room to crawl into bed with his “ba-ball” blankey to watch “Buzz” for the thousandth time, I just feel so absolutely blessed and I say a prayer for the Lord to bring my friends this same kind of happiness. I know you and Jordan will be great parents. I can’t wait to hear about all of your experiences on this wonderful journey of parenthood.

    Yeay! Congratulations!! Everything is going to be FINE. It’s weird just having had a baby…I looked at the calendar and realized I have spent most of the year pregnant, but it FLEW by, despite what everyone says. What a time of newness and growth for your family with the move and the new little life…enjoy every moment. It will be the most challenging thing you have ever done and you will never be more in love. It’s amazing!!
