Today is our 3 year wedding anniversary and 5 year dating anniversary! So, I figured it was a good time to share some wonderful news with you!
As I wrote my surrender post back in August, I had no idea how powerful of a post that actually was. I had just publically announced that I was relinquishing all control to God to have a baby. Little did I know that I was actually pregnant at that very moment!
Yes! You read that right…. I’m Pregnant!!!
I used running as my distraction. It cleared my mind, kept me fit, and helped me relax. I had literally got my mind away from getting pregnant for 2 months. I stopped counting the days, marking the calendar, and peeing on sticks. I was over it. Just as all that happened, God showed me who was in control, and I got pregnant. If this isn’t a miracle, I don’t what is!
The first sign of the miracle was when I unexpectedly saw this…
I found a way to be content with my life, without constantly thinking about the emptiness in my life. I felt joy and didn’t focus on the things I didn’t have. We are THRILLED and ELATED, but nervous and taking things day by day. I’m trying my best not to let the worry and fear of what could go wrong consume me.
I am now 9 weeks pregnant and just couldn’t keep this a secret any longer!
We are hoping and praying for a long and uneventful pregnancy. Please keep our miracle Greenie Baby and I in your prayers. We are hopeful for a healthy, full-term baby that we will bring home to raise in our family.
