EEEEEEEEKKKKKKKK! That was my reaction when we found out baby #3 is on the way. Due in early May. YIKES! It’s too soon! Little E is only 15 months old. But we knew it was bound to happen. In June I went in for my annual pap and was told my IUD had failed and I was pregnant and would need to have the IUD removed. It caused a miscarriage. I was so shocked and it happened all so fast I didn’t really know what to think. I just prayed and said Lord, let Thy will be done. Well, apparently his will is for me to procreate some more because a little over 2 months later, I was pregnant again. I should (and mostly do) feel blessed. You see, I honestly believe that God will always provide a way for you to do his will. However, I have had 2 very complicated pregnancies which ended in 2 premature baby girls. They had to spend weeks in the NICU and it was heart wrenching not knowing if they would be ok. Luckily both my girls are beautiful, healthy, happy kids but my Dr always likes to warn, next time you may not be so lucky! Geeez. I already know! Telling me just makes me all the more stressed out! So after we found out we were unexpectedly expecting my Dr also not so gently told me I needed a whole life overhaul. Hence, the beginning of this blog. This is the first picture of Baby F – can you tell if it’s a boy or a girl?? Me either! I can’t even tell it’s a baby. Looks like a blob to me! Pregnancy for me is scary – but I am sure with the love and help of my family and friends I can make it through!

Baby F due May 2012
