Here We Go Again....

I'm sure you've been wondering why I haven't been blogging lately. Mostly it is because we have been so busy--October is the "month of bonfires"--and this October is no exeption. We've had three so far and we have three (I believe) yet to go. They've actually been really great. The last two were especially fun because it was actually cold enough outside to enjoy a roaring fire!

But the biggest reason I haven't been blogging is because I've been sick. The doctor tells me that it is a nine month long virus that hopefully won't go away until the appointed time. We were trying to keep it a secret a little longer this time, but already people are guessing. It is probably because of the greenish cast to my face. I've actually felt pretty good for the bonfires, just not my usual spunky self. I qualify any time that I don't feel like I'm going to throw up as pretty good. I have my ten week appointment on November 6, which, coincidentally coincides with my due date with Blessing. When the nurse heard that she offered to change the appointment, but I chose to keep it, because I will hopefully have some really good news on a day that would have been particularly sad. So, it is time for my blogging friends, and fellow preggies out there who know only too well what I've been through, to know about our new little family member, and to pray really hard that no matter what happens, Jeff and I respond in a way that will be pleasing to Jesus. I ask that you especially pray for us through these next few weeks, as the morning sickness (all day sickness) has been really rough.

Thanks--we'll update more later!

Hi Betty,
Do you know that I've been "waiting" for this post. I guessed from the last post that you were pregnant. I will be praying for you... I know this is a difficult period after what you went through with Baby Blessing... If you need to talk, let me know. November 6th will be a happy day, indeed!!
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

I'm so happy for you guys! I know this time around is scarier.
Mark and I were asked to give a testimony at our church down here this past Sunday - we - mainly Mark - talked about the temptation to worry - specifically saying when we found out that we were pregnant again - "Here we go again!" I understand the desire to be excited, yet not wanting to "get your hopes up".
Will be praying for you!!!

I knew it! Congratulations; take it easy (as though you have a choice with the all-day sickness!). The Lord has everything in His hands, and He loves this little one even more than you do. Take care.

Betty- CONGRATS!!! I am excited for you and Jeff. I know what it was like to be sick all the time. I was sick for 7 of the 9 months with my firstborn. My Dr. reminded me everytime I came in that being sick was a sign that everything was OK. (Not exactly what you want to hear when you can't keep any food down!) Praying that this little one continues to grow and that your sickness will go away!

We will pray for a wonderful peaceful visit and God's protection of this precious gift. We are so happy for you!! God is good isn't He? Oh, and I understand that sickness, hang on:)
