On Wednesday after speaking with a nurse and the Doctor on-call I realized it was in the best interest of Sweetpea and me that I drive to my obgyn's office in Columbia. It was pretty scary because I had to go by myself because Christopher was having a very important meeting at work. His Mom came to my appointment instead, which was a huge relief, because I did not want to be alone. After having a miscarriage in December my mind always thinks the worst, even though the baby has been moving up a storm. Well at the same time I was hooked up to the monitor, Christopher was being laid off from work. The same job that brought us up to Charlotte in the first place (just 6 weeks ago). It is a HUGE mess... and very interwoven with the Church we are involved in so its a very sticky situation. You can be praying that he finds another job quickly and that we can get our old insurance back, because its hard as crap to get insurance being pregnant, especially this far along! Please pray for the relationships that are involved as it has torn friendships apart.
Life has been a roller-coaster over the last 2 years... many surgeries, broken bones, living in different cities/countries, job changes, location changes, miscarriage and new baby, etc. Despite the heartache and stress... I have peace that God is still in control! We appreciate all of your prayers!

Since everyone keeps asking to see my belly and the baby I thought the easiest way is to post a slide show. I hope you enjoy it!

that I am only at the 1/2 way mark by looking at this
picture, but the time has really flown by. Probably due
to our extremely busy lives lately. For those of you who

While strawberry picking yesterday with Christen, I remembered that little Sweet Pea is about the size of the strawberry I am holding. It is pretty amazing to me just how fast our little one is growing inside and astounding to think that God has His hand on every little growth and development that is taking place! I am blessed to know the Creator and look forward to holding the baby He created just for us! 10 weeks down 30 weeks to go!

Well Now that I am 8 weeks I have grown from
the size of a blueberry to raspberry! All of my
growing is making Mommy sooo tired... her
favorite thing to do is to take naps! I have not
been very nice to Mommy... she is sick almost
EVERYDAY and when she does not throw up
in the morning she feels sick ALL DAY LONG!
But hey the Dr. says that morning-sickness
means I am healthy! well my fingers and toes
and little facial features are growing so fast it is
time for me to take a little nap!

Chris and I are proud to announce that we are going to have a baby! I am due late October or early November, but I should know my due-date March 13th when I go in for another ultra-sound! Please continue to pray that the baby is healthy and grows as it is supposed to without any complications! As of right now I am about 6 weeks pregnant, so I still have a long ways to go so I will use this site to keep friends and family updated. Please check back regularly... don't worry I'll update it better than I have previously!
