New Life

Well, as I posted several days ago there was some uncertainty about the new life growing with in my womb. I've been back and forth to the doctors for blood tests. Today I was scheduled to go in do see my OB and learn of my results from yesterday.

I have to tell you that I was nervous going to the doctor this morning. John and I have been praying and believing God for HIS report not man's report on this new life. He's the one that gives life and we know that He is in control no matter what. I was still nervous. I was believing for the best but also preparing for the worst. Which when I think about that that really doesn't show much for my faith in my God. I should know with out a shadow of a doubt that this little one is in the shadow of the Almighty and that HE is taking care of this child. I told myself that I wanted to be prepared if it went the other way...and that made me fear.

Back to the doctors office...

I had to wait in the waiting room and then the nurse called me back. They all know me there - pretty much (I have 3 kids under the age of 5 so I've been there a lot). She was really sweet and asked "How are you doing Hun?" in this kind of sympathy tone.

Nerves are going crazy now

I get into the room and she says "She'll talk with you in a little bit".




I was about to cry when I heard the nurse say "She's in room 8 what do I need to prepare?"

I waited over 30min for her to come in.

And then...the results....went up from 75 to 114!!!!!

It was like this weight was lifted from me and instantly we just began talking about the plan and what she was concerned about. I had an ultrasound to check things out and then we were done. Scheduled to do blood tests again Monday. Just awesome!!!

God is faithful!! Even when I was still believing, but questioning/doubting what was going on...He knew and was in control the whole time. So often we do that with any situation that arises, but even more so when we have absolutely no control over what is happening. All I could and was to do was trust and believe God and that is what we are to do at all times. Have faith.

I'm so excited for this report and I know that it's only going to go up from here!
Thank you all for your prayers and support. We are continuing to pray for this new life and every part of this pregnancy.
