And Another One

Sunday, July 31, 2016

Oh my lanta we are having another baby, already! Well that's what we keep hearing, "ALREADY!"
Yes, already! Want to hear something funny? We were shocked too.

You see I have some health issues that cause my womanly functions to not function super well. It all started when I first got married and realized something wasn't right. My doctor then said I could potentially have PCOS but wasn't too sure. Then we got Noah.
After my lil mr Noah my body was even worse. No periods, lots of thyroid issues, weird hormonal stuff. Again, maybe PCOS... Then came Uriah.
Well after Uriah they were sure I have PCOS. I gained over 20lbs in less than 2 months, had a ton of insulin issues, ovary issues, and the list goes on. In March of this year they told me we may not be able to have any more children and if we did it would be very difficult. They said I would struggle with my weight and have hormonal problems that affect almost everything about being a woman. Because we want a lot of kids, we were super bummed to hear this.

June rolls around and I'm just not myself. Throwing up, nauseous, incredibly tired, and just extremely bloated. Could you imagine how surprised I was to find out I am pregnant. 

Even more confused...

These were some of the things I felt when we found out. Then I got sad. I was sad that people might judge us of being so young and on our 3rd baby. I was sad that I would have so much work with 3 kids 3 and under. I was sad that I was going to be fat forever.

But then God... God is a miracle worker and He reminded me of my hearts desire, to have a big family. He was giving me that. Despite what doctors and tests have said, despite my body working against itself, God was giving Nathaniel and I another baby. A gift, from Him, our 3rd little miracle baby. 

So world, yes... We are having another one... ALREADY!
And we seriously could not be more excited and we can't help but feel extremely blessed! 

So here comes our 3rd sweet son, January 2017, and we cannot wait to welcome him into this beautiful mess of a family we have.

"You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before they came to be." Psalms 139:16
"Children are a gift from the Lord;
    they are a reward from him." Psalm 127:3

 Noah isn't quite sure how he feels haha
