First there was this:
That's right... I'm pregnant!
I'm ten weeks and four days and, I think, still in shock.
First, let me say that it pained me to keep this from all of you in the blog world. If it were up to me I would have posted as soon as I had suspicions (which I'll get to in the next post). But when we travelled to pick up Clara back in January, we told everyone we knew to follow us on this blog, never anticipating we'd ever have news like this that we'd want to keep private. So, we waited until we'd had two ultrasounds to tell you, although we're still keeping it (or trying to) from the world at large. And that means if you do know us in real life, PLEASE keep this to yourself. Just for a couple more weeks. PLEASE. Thanks.
We are overjoyed. We are thankful. We are in disbelief. We are on cloud nine. We are, at times, nervous (or, should I say, 'I' am, at times, nervous). We are, still, stunned. Pregnancy wasn't even on our radar after Clara. I wasn't taking anything other than my maintenance meds when I conceived.
It's safe to say that God has definitely surprised us lately. First, Clara. And then, well, after five-and-a-half years, you tend to stop believing it's humanly possible for you to conceive. But, of course, all things are possible with God. Why did I ever think otherwise?
Much more to come (I'll be back to regular posting.. I guess you can now understand my recent silence!). In the meantime, here's a video we took today of our newest little one swimming. I still can't believe that's our baby on the monitor, or for that matter, I still can't believe that's our other baby crying in the background. God is so good. Although, He always was, even before our miracles.
