It’s not Sinking in…But it’s Real!

Two weeks ago, I started having horrible back pain (again…what’s new, right?). This time it wouldn’t go away. Two days ago, it moved into a whole different area of my back…an area I haven’t experienced pain in, in quite some time.

In three days I lost four pounds…hmmm. I’ve pretty much reached “plateau” status, so four pounds is weird. Quite some time ago, the same thing happened.

Over the last few weeks, my stomach hasn’t felt quite right. That also happened quite some time ago.

Over the past couple weeks, things have been happening a lot, that haven’t happened in quite some time.


Anyone remember what was happening three years ago? Yup… I was pregnant with Aristana.

So, yesterday I went to Walgreens, and an hour later, I was the proud owner of a used pregnancy test with a HUGE plus sign staring at me.

Today, I went to my doctor, and it was confirmed. We’re having another baby! The pregnancy is very early, only five weeks (for those of you who don’t know, a pregnancy is 40 weeks). The due date, as of now, is January 29th!

Can you believe it? Up until two months ago, I was positive that I didn’t want another child. Things were going so well with Lia Sophia, and I had many goals that I didn’t want to be disturbed. I felt a baby would only complicate the situation, and slow down my ability to accomplish the things I want. I realized one day, that I had given my business over to God, but not the rest of my life. If God decided that we should have a baby, He will make it work! So here we are…thank you God for trusting us once again!

Aristana has been telling everyone for us. “Mama have a baby in her belly.”
Wow. God is good!
