My "preggo" addiction....

I only have a few minutes to post, but I HAVE to let you know about the one thing that I am absolutely addicted to right, not preggy pops (although B thinks we should have purchased stock in them because we have bought so many packs)'s actually an iPhone application called iPregnancy! If you are pregnant and have an iPhone, then you need need need this! It is the most informative app I have ever purchased - lots of information, diagrams, pictures and recording tools! I don't like to think that I am a tech savvy person, but I am DEFINITELY obsessed with this thing!

for all you pregnant or have-been-pregnant gals....
What got you through your pregnancy????
Let me know what books, magazines, food, whatever worked best for you!

Blessings from above!

"Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago."
- Isaiah 25:1

I have claimed this verse for the past couple of months - and for good reason. God is unbelievably faithful! B and I got a late Christmas present this year....

A POSITIVE pregnancy test! Two pink lines = we're having a baby!

I kind of felt like God was going to give us this amazing gift at Christmas. We had actually started with preliminary infertility tests and even had an appointment to meet with an infertility specialist in January, but God had other plans for us! We kept praying, knowing that God was going to bless us with a child!

We have just been beside ourselves for the past month! I actually switched doctors right after I found out I was pregnant, and I'm so glad I did. My new doctor's office has been unbelievably helpful - I had an early ultrasound done at six weeks to make sure everything was okay, and I will NEVER, EVER forget seeing that precious heartbeat. It was absolutely love at first sight!

Baby W's first picture at six weeks!

Then, just a few weeks later, we had another ultrasound at nine weeks. B had to miss the first ultrasound because he was in Mississippi for his grandmother's funeral, so he was just thrilled to get to see our little peanut!

Baby W's picture at nine weeks - I still can't believe how much he/she has grown in just that small amount of time! Isn't God amazing?!??

So, I am a little over 10 weeks right now. I have had horrible morning sickness, but even through all of that, I am so thankful. I always told B that even if I was terribly sick, I would still continue to thank God for this wonderful blessing, and that's what I plan on doing!

So, if you were one of the many prayer warriors we have had, I want to sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart! You will never know how much I appreciate you! Keep praying!

I will try to update more, if time permits. We have lots of plans for this special little one, and I want to make sure I am documenting everything!
