We're Having a Baby!!


Here's a picture of our little boy

God is blessing us with another precious son, made in the image of God and created for His glory. "But I will give repeated thanks to the LORD, praising Him to everyone. For He stands beside the needy." Psalm 109:30-31  "With God's help we will do mighty things for He will trample down our foes." Psalm 108:13 "Those who are wise will take all this to heart; they will see in our history the faithful love of the LORD." Psalm 107:43

thought it'd be fun to include some pregnancy facts for you. (Thanks Jenny B for the idea!)
Due Date: July 7
How far along? 18 weeks 1 day
Total weight gain: 3-5 lbs
Am I feeling the baby move? yes, and I am so thankful each time I feel him move
Maternity clothes? For sure. This is baby #4 so I think I started maternity pants at about 9 weeks this time! The belly band just wasn't cutting it and oh, how I miss my normal jeans. Pregnancy pants are.just.not.the.same
Sleep: Not doing too well in that department. I love to sleep on my back part of the time and that's a no-no at this point in the pregnancy. And, for the first time, I seem to be dealing with pregnancy insomnia. 
Best moment this week: Seeing him trying to suck his thumb on the ultrasound.
Miss Anything? sleeping on my back
Movement: Getting more frequent. Love it!
Food cravings: Uncle Matt's Orange Juice. Best orange juice ever. Tastes like it just got squeezed.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Thankfully, not anymore. Not too long ago--just about everything! Still dealing with a tad bit of nausea sometimes.
Gender: Boy (we will have three boys and one girl. We are blessed to raise another son for God's glory!)
Workouts: I wish. I did actually "walk" a couple times recently with the Wii Fit. Going to try to do that more.  Once the weather warms up I'll be out walking with the other kids.
Wedding rings on or off? Still on and very loose!
Moody? Well, I must admit, I was at first (clue #1 something might be up!) but now I'm much better. :)
Looking forward to: warm weather...my maternity wardrobe is much more warm weather friendly! And, Lord-willing, a healthy, happy baby. I can't wait to smell him!
Things I Need:  Believe it or not, there are a few things I need even though (or maybe because of) this is the 4th child. Lord-willing all of those things will be provided for.
Moments I Love: Caleb (our 3 year old) who needs to "say hi to the baby" frequently. It goes something like this. "Hi Baby, this is Caleb. I love you." {Kiss, kiss, kiss}
Did you ever think you'd have 4 children? No, not really, but I'll write a post about that later. :)
Encouraging verse or moment: So many verses that I can't pick just one. Also, listening to Scripture Lullabies. I can't tell you how much it has been a blessing to me right now.
I would appreciate prayers for the development and safe arrival of this little one. Thank you!
