A Blessing

For years, Husband and I have talked about having our own family some day. We even talked about it back in our dating years. And in the last (almost) five years of marriage we've talked about when the right time would be...well at it seems, now is the right time. But I guess truly there isn't ever a right time, as you hear everyone tell you, when it comes down to practicality. But God knows the perfect timing and Husband and I trust and rest in this fully.

So on January 20th I found out I was carrying an amazing blessing, our little baby! Before taking the at-home pregnancy test, I was anxious. I so wanted the test to be positive, but was preparing myself for a negative — it was our first month trying and almost all of my friends took a few months or even years to see that beautiful positive sign on the stick.

First month trying and with unneeded anxiousness, Husband and I are blessed! Our little one will be arriving at the end of September.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
{Philippians 4:6}

Today is the start of my second trimester and I hope all I hear is true. I'm ready for the glow! The first trimester went by very fast but I really struggled with "morning" sickness, yet it was all-day sickness for me. This past week I went to see my OB for a regular appointment and shared that I was still nauseous constantly and getting sick. Thankfully he was able to prescribe me zofran, and that seems to be helping.

Both Husband's and my families are just as thrilled as we are. We are so excited to meet this little blessing of ours this fall.


  1. I am currently pregnant as well and due on Sept 27th...with my last pregnancy I was prescribed Zofran and with this pregnancy I was forced to see a new doctor who prescribed me the miracle pill. It's better than Zofran and it's specifically designed for preggos. The name is Diclegis. You should really look into it and see if your doctor could get you a sample. Seriously, it's a miracle. Congrats and good luck!

    1. Congrats on your pregnancy! I will definitely look into Diclegis and talk to my doctor about it. Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Congrats! So happy for you and excited to see your family grow!
