On April 9th, 2011 - our world changed!
David and I have been trying to have a baby for years. Well, as you know, David is a full time musician - so the 3 years we were trying wasn't actually 3 years straight! But, it was still a long time!
November of this year I went to the doctor and she informed me I was infertile. Those words were crushing. Since we had been trying for so long with no success, thats how the medical community technically classified me. She wanted to start testing a week later- but I wasn't ready.
David came off the road in May of 2010 to start a family and write music for our church community. By the time I went to the doctor in November, he had only been home for 6 months. After tears and many prayers, I decided I was going to wait until May to start testing and medication to help us conceive.
I knew God's timing was perfect, and no matter what we did ~ He was in complete control. He is Creator~ so we would be patient, and let God be God! It was hard, at times, over the next five months; I had good days and not so good days. But mainly good days! I feel like I trusted well. I learned a lot, but my faith never wavered. We even started a club :) My sisters named it for us. We will keep that our secret!
I continued to trust, and know God is faithful ~ always has been, always will be.
Just one week before I had planned on calling to make my appointment, we found out we were having a baby!
God's timing IS perfect.
We couldn't believe it! We laughed, I cried ... then David made me take a second test! You can't take just one! And I wasn't chancing misreading those lines! No, I went digital! I wanted that test to tell me!!
We went to the doctor a few weeks later, and were able to see our little Peanut!!
There it is!! Our little peanut! It was only the size of a grain of rice when we saw it for the first time. But it had a really strong heartbeat!! It is pretty unreal to see your baby's heartbeat!!
Stay tuned for updates along the way!!
