I'm Pregnant

You all know that Jeremy and I have been going through a period of transition in our lives, a lot of stuff going on. Jeremy will be graduating with his bachelors degree from Andrews this August and hopefully soon after, getting a management position with Target, where he has been working for 5 years. I also made the decision to put school on hold for a while about 1 month and 1/2 ago.

You all also probably know that we became licensed foster parents at the end of April. Well we hadn't gotten any calls yet and both of us still very much wanted a baby. Since I was not in school anymore, we decided it would be the perfect time to start thinking about trying to get pregnant again.

We wanted to go about everything the best possible way this time so I immediately started taking prenatal vitamins, and we made an appointment to go to the dr to get my health checked. we threw out the protection and decided to just relax and see what happened.

Well when we went in for my dr appointment the dr decided to check the health of my ovaries with an ultrasound and he saw that I had just ovulated within the last few days. We were excited because even though we had literally made the decision to start trying again only the week before we still had a good chance for this month.

Well, a few days later I took my first pregnancy test, which had a VERY light line.... hmmm I thought "am I imagining this?" so I took another test the next day which again had a light line, the next day darker, and then on friday June 19th I got a VERY positive test. So Jeremy and I hugged and cried and screamed and jumped around the room. Jeremy and I are in COMPLETE shock that it happened this fast... but SO SO SO SO excited to have another baby on the way.

I went to the dr, on monday and had it confirmed with a blood test so it's really, really true! :) :) :) :)

We got in contact with the social worker and put foster care on hold for now. It is still something we would both very much like to do but for right now we are going to concentrate on bringing this little one into the world safely.

As most of you know Gabriel's nickname was baby canderemy when I was pregnant with him so we thought this little one needed his/her own nickname and since you all know Jeremy is Jer bear, we decided to call this baby our little Teddy Graham :)

As of right now I am 4wks+1 day pregnant (by my estimations) and our due date is March 3rd 2010 which seems an absolute eternity away, but we are going to put our trust in God, pray for the safety of this little life and hope for the best! Please be excited with us :) and please join us in praying for the safety of our little Teddy Graham.

We love all of you and are so glad that we had your support when we lost Gabriel, even though he didn't get to stay with us here, we know we will see him again in heaven and no matter what happens this time we'll be glad that we had the support of family and friends throughout. so thanks for being awesome guys! :)

doesn't it just make you smile? (can you tell I'm happy?):) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
