Big News!

Tink has surgery on Fri of this week. We have been managing her belly pain with acid reducers for 18 months now. The meds just aren't totally kicking the pain. We went for a ped specialist consult and they want to see what's going on in there. She is now scheduled for an upper GI scope and biopsy. Hopefully we get some answers. I am going to be a wreck the day of the procedure.

We also have good news.

We have a baby on the way! Finally!!

We have been trying for almost two years now. In fact the last time I visited my ob/gyn she wanted to send me to a fertility specialist. I declined. I told her I had put the matter in God's hands and if he thought we needed a baby, he would give us one. And he did. I am feeling so very blessed.

I am only about four weeks along right now. It is a little early to start telling everyone. But Hubbs decided he can't wait, we must tell now.

Tink was the first person we told. She is thrilled with the idea of being a big sister. As long as she has a little sister. She's determined it's going to be a girl.

Hubbs is sure it's a boy.

I just want a healthy baby and an easy pregnancy.

Tink is already picking out which toys and books she is going to give the baby. She is planning on teaching the baby to read as soon as it's born. Poor baby, it's going to have two mothers and I'm the less bossy of the two.

Last night at my dance class the other women all prayed for me and the baby and Tink. I have never had anyone pray for me before. I was extremely touched and cried. Being a part of these women is a great blessing to me. I am so happy I stepped out of my comfort zone and joined the class.
