Hi everyone. Well today is the day to share my exciting news
. But first of all you must read this post carefully.
I know most of you know I have been fighting terrible stomach problems for the past 2 yrs. I finally found out that I have Candida, which is an overgrowth of yeast in my stomach, which causes bad stomach pains, huge bloating and just pain miserable feeling. I have changed the way I eat and I can't have any kind of sugar or foods that can turn into sugar. Also no caffeine, which causes the liver to release sugars throughout your body.
I was feeling so good when I quit eating all the stuff that was causing all my problems and had so much energy.
Well 7 yrs ago my husband had a vasectomy and then 2 weeks ago I was 2 weeks late for my monthly visit which we all woman hate. I thought changing the way I was eating has really changed my body so much that I was going to skip it that month. Well something just didn't seem right so I decided I was going to stop and get a pregnancy test just so I could get that out of my head and then I would know it was because of the foods I was and wasn't eating.
I took 3 test and all 3 read PREGNANT, yes pregnant... HOW it the hell could that be my husband has been fixed. I started freaking out as I will be 38 in August and my husband will be 47 in May. We decided with our last child that we were done and didn't want anymore. So less than a year after Jazmine was born he had a vasectomy.
I went to my OB/GYN this past Thursday and YES... I am PREGNANT.. I will be 8 weeks tomorrow, the due ate is Oct. 26th. I think the shock has finally soaked in and now I am getting pretty excited as this is our miracle baby and this baby is just meant to be a part of out lives. We might have decided not to have anymore children, but GOD has other plans for us. My oldest child.. Destiny is 18 , a Senior and will be graduating this year and then going to college. I'm to old to start all over again.. well that is what I thought in the beginning, but now I know this is what GOD has planned for us and out family.
My husband is still freaking out and he is scared to death. But each day gets a little easier for him. We will go back to the doctor on April 12 and we will get to hear the babies heart beat and he is going with me for that appointment. I'm glad he is .. that way it will finally be a reality for him when he hears his babies heart beat.
I'm not saying that I'm still not is shock as I am .. I know that a vasectomy is not 100%, but I never thought that 1 in so many hundreds of thousands would be us.
My doctor said that over the years his tubs has just gradually grew back together,, after they had been snipped and burned. Who know that could happen.
Well in honor of my exciting news I have made a card for the occasion.
I went with green since I'm not far enough along yet to know what we are having and of course green is my favorite color.
I also made this card for one of my good friends as a friend of ours just had a baby yesterday.. He weighted 11 lbs and 6.4oz.. I think I would die if any of my babies were that big. My biggest was 7 lbs 4.4 oz and my smallest was 6 lbs 5 oz.
I used a digi image which you can get over at Funky Kits, the home of Sugar Nellies.
I will take this card to work with me on Monday to give to my friend as she asked me to make it for her.
Well I hope I haven't freaked all of you out by my news. But I also wanted to share why I haven't been around a lot lately...... I told you I had a lot going on.
Hugs to all of you and thanks so much for joining me in my EXCITING and scary news.
