"The LORD has done great things,
and we are filled with joy. "
Who could have imagined that less than one week after I wrote that last post, the Lord would grant my requests and allow me to become pregnant?
Scott and I are over-the-moon thrilled.
We are so thankful for this child.
I had my first ultrasound today.
How amazing to see that our tiny baby is already so perfectly formed!
I cannot even begin to express the joy that I felt as I watched this precious little one squirm and wiggle, always holding it's little hands up in front of it's face, and moving so much that the technician had a hard time getting clear pictures.
For those of you wanting more details..... :)
I am thirteen weeks, four days pregnant, and just beginning my second trimester.
Our little baby is about the size of a kiwi. (Still so tiny!!)
My due date is June 18th 2015! I can't wait!
We are going to find out the gender in the beginning of February,
and I will be sure to update you all once that happens!
I have been experiencing most of the usual symptoms of pregnancy, and even though it is uncomfortable, I am so thrilled to be feeling everything I have been longing to feel!
Once again, we are so thankful for our child, and even for the past two years of waiting.
The Lord has changed and sanctified me so much in the midst of all of it.
If you are struggling with infertility,
I only wish I could say something to comfort your hurting heart.
I cannot tell you that your desires will be fulfilled,
but I can tell you that the Lord is good, and faithful.
Throughout the time that I was waiting and pleading for a child,
I was constantly questioning if that was really true.
Is He really good? Is He really faithful?
But the Lord always humbled me and made me to see the truth of who He is.
Even if today I wasn't pregnant, and still waiting for a child,
He is good and right and just and faithful.
He always will be, in every circumstance.
Thank you for your prayers, and thank you for rejoicing with us!
In closing, here is a little baby bump shot! :)
Love and blessings,
