I haven’t written an update since late November, and each month I feel a little guilty about it. We have had so many amazing hearts praying for our journey, and as the title of my blog suggests, I am trying to live with an open heart.
My last blog post left off with all the options that Chris and I had in our journey to create a family. They were amazing options. That was on November 27th. Fast forward to today, and most of you know that I am now 18 almost 19 weeks pregnant! The time between November and now has been amazingly wonderful and at times still a little frightening.
What I have learned is that our God is all powerful, all loving, all knowing, and in control. All of my worries and fears have been systematically stomped on and proven to be unfounded. He has always known exactly what I need, and now he knows I need signs to deter my worry. And he has provided that every step of the way. From doctors appointments to blood work to ultrasounds. At each step, I have been provided all that I need to be able to relax and enjoy this journey more and more.
I know now God had this amazing plan all along, and that the journey to get to this point was needed for me and for Chris. I would not ask for it to be any different. We have grown so much together and in our faith that every struggle has clearly had a purpose. We are so thankful for God’s constant ability to show us that we have nothing to worry about because he’s got this!
Our little man is doing really well. Two appointments ago he was in the 65th percentile and last appointment he was in the 75th percentile. He is growing like a weed and doing well. My next appointment is March 30th and we will be at the halfway point!
I know we’ve said this over and over, but we are so thankful for all the support and prayers, and it makes it so much fun to share our joy with you all as well!
