And now...you know

The news is out! We have called, emailed, faxed, text-messaged, homing-pigeoned, and we have announced it in person -- Casey and I are having a baby!

And yes, this is part of the reason I've been more tired and not feeling so well lately. That, plus the Behcet's flared up a bit because of all the hormone changes my body has to adjust to these days. I am hoping, readers, that I don't get out of hand on the blog and go on endlessly about baby things, but I cannot promise you that it won't happen every now and then.

Casey and I feel greatly blessed in this tiny little person, and especially after we were able to see and hear the heartbeat a little over a week ago! It was joyful and amazing -- more amazing, really, than anything else. I am constantly reading about the growth that a baby makes in such a short time, and it is just incredible. How awesome is it that a human being, less than one ounce right now, could weigh up to eight pounds in just seven more months?

I want to add just one more thing: God is good. I have been struggling through some other issues for several weeks now, and he always brings me back to this joyous event. No matter my circumstances, I am blessed.

Hooray! Congratulations! I am so happy for the both of you. I will be praying for good health for you during this time. Children are one of the biggest blessings from God imaginable. I'm sending you a big cyber-hug right now!

I'm praying that Behcets will be kind to you throughout your pregnancy.

Happy Blessings and Congratulations! :)

Lori, how sweet! Those cyber-hugs last much longer anyway. =)

Sarah...you know me too well. That's why I couldn't promise not to go on! I am hoping the Behcet's will calm down soon enough, and I think it has a bit. Thankfully, I have a wonderful ob/gyn who is keeping a very close eye on things and is determined to do so the whole way through.
