Forever Changed

June 17th, 2010 was the day that changed my life. This is the day I found myself peeing on a stick, and found out I was pregnant! Chris and I weren't exactly trying to get pregnant but had started the "let's see what happens" phase. Well, it happened! Calling and telling Chris that we were going to have a baby was the best. The excitement in his voice was priceless!

However, the moment I read "YES" on that test, I instantly became a different person. A hundred questions immediatley starting running through my head. What am I going to do? If I'm pregnant, why am I spotting? What if something's wrong? What if I lose I this baby? What's my principal going to say? You get the picture!

I was a nervous wreck for weeks! Everything I felt, I assumed was bad. I'm sure the nurse at my doctor's office was thinking, "What's wrong with this nutjob!?" I know I drove her crazy.

It wasn't long before I realized that I needed to take all these fears to God. When I slowed down and really thought about it, this pregnancy was perfect timing. This blessing came when God wanted it to come. For several months, things have been falling into place for Chris and I. I knew that I could not go the next 8 weeks in absolute panic. I started praying and haven't stopped. God has been so good.

Now that I'm in my second trimester, I'm ready to blog everything that's going on, the good, bad, and ugly. However, I just made it through the first week of school and I'm exhausted. I'll a much more entertaining blog tomorrow.

Until next time...
