The Lord is SOOOO good!!

I can't even put in to words how THRILLED BEYOND BELIEF I am to be making this post today!! As many of you know all I have ever wanted to be in life is a mommy. Well, the Lord has been gracious enough to answer my prayers! WE'RE HAVING A BABY!!!! Oh my gosh, I can't beleive it!! We went to the Dr. today and had our first sonogram (see pictures below) and also got to hear baby's heartbeat (a fast 174 BPM!!). It was amazing, more than I could ever have imagined!! Our estimated date of arrival is January 11, 2009 and believe me, I know that the next 7 months is going to fly by! We covet any and all prayers as we are aware that we are not "in the clear" as of yet. We trust the Lord and know that this is HIS child and not ours and that His will is better than anything we could imagine, even if we don't understand it. Please pray for safety, health for the baby, and myself as I am dealing with major nausea. And please pray for Daddy (Aaron) that the Lord would continue to prepare his heart for being a father.

Thank you Lord for this wonderful blessing. Thank you for entrusting us with one of your children. Please keep your child safe as it grows inside me and help me to be mindful of this amazing gift each and everyday! We love you and thank you so much for all of the blessings you have given us!!

If you need suggestions for nausea relief I can give you lists of things I've tried. You never know what might work for you.

jill, this is the best news! what a blessing. i am so inspired at how unabashedly you are embracing this gift and resting in God's graciousness to you. i want to do the same with my pregnancy, despite the losses we've had in the past. thank you for reminding me to do that. can't wait to see more sonogram pics!!


(p.s. - this baby's heartrate was between 170-175 when we went in the first time, too!)
