The results are in...

Okay, so for the past six months I've been amazed that I've not become pregnant again, following the cycle of the last five years in which I've been constantly either pregnant or nursing an infant. It has been so nice not to be pregnant or nursing!! It's been nice but it's been weird. But anyway, the whole area of family size and timeing is one that I felt God challenged me to totally surrender to Him, to trust that He knows my needs and my desires and He will never ever give me more than He is able to give me the grace to then deal with... if that makes sense. So trusting that God opens and closes the womb we've been waiting and surprised that God closed my womb for awhile.
So anyway, since December my cycle has been a little off (hope that's not TMI) then my girls all got sick at the same time with really bad colds so I was out of the loop for a while, I thought that maybe I could be pregnant but maybe I'd just forgotten the date of my last period (since I'd thrown that calendar page away!!) anyway....
Long story short - I'm pregnant!! We are SO VERY excited!!!

Daniel took this pic. of my preg. test :-)

I feel, for the most part, just great. This will be number four for us, and we are hoping for a boy. I feel confident that the Lord will give us a boy one way or another sooner or later and I'm content to wait. Beth really really wants a baby brother, she's been praying for one for months now... So anyway I just wanted to share our happy news!!
