I've been wanting to tell you this little secret for a while now. At first it was suspected, and then it was confirmed by two little chemical strips,... but doctor was on vacation and I'm one of those "I HAVE TO SEE IT TO BELIEVE IT" people.
Fancy that, a Christian who has to see it to believe it. Stranger things have happened - I'm the Thomas type.
So I waited patiently, marking the signs...
.strange cravings for foods I don't really like
.the new super power appearing: I can resist dark chocolate!
.urgent desire to wean
.tired, oh, so tired
.gagging on the toothbrush and at smells that normally don't bother me
.discomfort in the waist area when I have tight jeans on
.lightheaded confusion (that might be just my normal, but I thought I'd throw that in to try and get some sympathy)
SO. My "quite content with three" has turned in to "eagerly awaiting #4". Strangely enough, a woman at my church told me a month before I knew I was pregnant that I was going to have another little girl. I laughed it off. But now I'm scratching my head. How could she have known I was pregnant before I did?
Pregnant and 37. With a baby due on my eldest's birthday: February 11th. It's all so much to absorb. But we have had time to get used to the idea... despite not quite having labor pain amnesia yet. Doc says her oldest patient right now is 42. Not sure that makes me feel any younger.
Sometimes God has other plans for us. But they are often wonderful ones... even if they do include some 'pain in the offering'. We worship and praise.
