SURPRISE...I'm Pregnant!!!

I found out that I was pregnant early in February!  It was a total shock to us.  We had tried so hard for 3.5 years, and then just decided that it was break time and time to rest my body in hopes that would help.  Apparently that is what we needed because I was able to surprise myself with being pregnant!  I didn't ever think that my body would allow that, but it happened and I am so happy! 
I had to come to the realization that it is all in the Lord's time.  I don't just get to say I want a baby and have one.  I know that each of my baby's have been given to me at the time that they were supposed to come to me.  I had many blessings during the time that we were trying that continually said "be patient and the Lord knows what is best".  I just didn't want to believe this and just kept stressing and being sad all the time about not being pregnant.  It was about the time that we decided to take a break that I really started growing a testimony of patience and giving my all to the Lord.  I feel so blessed for this huge gift that gets to come into my home in just a few short months.  I am grateful to be on this side of one of my hardest trials and hope that I am better for it.

Some important parts of my pregnancy so far:
5 weeks:  Started getting afternoon sickness
5 weeks and 5 days: Find out I am pregnant...because of the sickness
7 weeks: Started getting extreme amounts of pain and tell Church friends I'm pregnant so I can get some help.
8 Weeks:  Got my first ultrasound moved up since of all the pain and found out I have a perfect little mover on my hands.
8 weeks:  Put on "Rest" until I am 12 weeks.
9 Weeks:  Announce I am pregnant!

I am so excited you are pregnant.

I had no idea you were on bed rest. I wish I could have been there to help out.
