the story.

If you've read my blog over the last couple months then you probably know that I've dealt with a lot of health problems recently. So, getting pregnant was not even being considered. The only talk around prengancy was that we were going to wait a really long time.


We didn't think it was wise to get pregnant while my body was going through so much. And to be completely honest I was scared to get pregnant again. After all we went through with Vanessa, not knowing if she would live, wondering what kind of problems she might have if she did make it and being separated from Elijah took a toll on me. Our plates were full and we were enjoying the two precious children we had. 


On Father's Day I woke up and had an overwhelming feeling that I was pregant. I had the same feeling when I was pregnant with Elijah and Vanessa. I had to run some errands so while I was out I took a test. It was negative. But I knew I was pregant. So, I waited...like a whole day and took another test...well make that four more tests and Caleb saying over and over, "really are you serious?" and it finally hit us. I was really seriously pregnant. 


If it's possible I've gotten sicker, but I don't mind, cause I have an incredible gift waiting for me at the end of all this. Caleb and are are thrilled and not worried a bit. Which I know is God's grace. I've been to the doctor twice. I'm ten weeks and hating ice cream with a passion...which is very strange for me. But he says so far so good. He'll be treating it as a high risk pregnacy because of Vanessa, but says that we have every reason to believe this will be a normal pregnancy. 


I feel blessed and grateful beyond measure. I know this baby is a special gift from God and I can't wait to meet him or her. (and we will be finding out the sex as soon as possible. we LOVE knowing.)

Oh my goodness Jessica! How amazing! I am so so happy for you but I am sorry you're so sick :( I have no doubt that God is watching over your sweet family!

Oh Jess, I never ever read your blog unless I'm sitting down with a moment to myself and a box of tissues... I cry every time. I miss you so much that your ice cream comment made my heart ache. :) there are not a lot of wonderful friends like you girl and I'm grateful for the time we got to spend together so long ago. Having conflicted feelings about you moving to Boise since that takes you even farther away but that just means I have to make a concentrated effort to get out there for a visit.
