Lucky Number Seven

Our family has received an early Christmas present. We have just found out that we will be having a baby!

I am very early in my pregnancy, and I am feeling pretty good so far.

The baby should be here some time in August I will have more details once I go for my doctor appointment.

I have so many feelings about this pregnancy, fist being joy and thankfulness.

When I first found out I was pregnant I looked around my three-bedroom house and thought where in the world am I going to put a baby? How am I going to deal with five children, can I do this?

As soon as these thoughts came to my head they were swept away with thoughts and feelings of instant love for this little one, love for my husband, and love for my growing family.

Every baby brings lessons. This baby is already preparing me to put my trust in God, take one day at a time, and to be aware of every blessing that comes our way.

No wonder a child is one of God’s greatest gifts, look at how much insight and love God sends with a new baby.

I would like to ask for your prayers that this little one remains healthy and that any anxiety that may creep in be lifted from our family.

Peace and God Bless

I can relate. I had 2 of my babies in August and one in September. With my 4th I remember some worry about making it all work...but it does and the new person to love for the rest of your life makes those worries vanish.

God bless!

Congratulations! What wonderful news.

To tell you the truth, we moved from our 3 bedroom house to a 4 bedroom after I got pregnant with #5. I just couldn't think of where to put another dresser! It was a very small 3 bedroom.

I empathize with the space issue. We have a small (1000sqft) 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom home,and it's feeling cramped with 3 children (our third bedroom is currently a computer room so the baby is in our bedroom). I'm hoping we'll be in a bigger house before we get pregnant again, but if not, I know we'll find a way to make it work.

Many prayers for you and your little one! :)
