We're having a baby!

We've been really good at keeping a secret! Tomorrow I'm 13 weeks pregnant. The due date is 8/22/07, a day before my brother's birthday. I've been feeling really good. I haven't had any morning sickness, but I feel a little queasy without anything in my stomach. So, I've been eating all through the day! Ryan is really happy, and he can't wait until I'm "fat and pregnant". He already has the names finalized!

We are in awe of how God brought about this baby in His timing. We had been trying for a baby for nearly 3 years. It was heartbreaking to wait and hope. At the same time, we knew that we did not want to go to desparate measures to get pregnant. In November, I finally had an appointment with my ob/gyn to discuss some infertility options. Little did I know I was pregnant at the time! I scheduled an appointment at the end of the month for a blood test to determine whether I was ovulating. After discussing it with Ryan, we decided that it was best to not seek help with conception but to wait and trust God. So, I canceled my appointment. Soon after that I realized I was pregnant. We are more aware of God as our Creator than ever before. The same hands that formed the mountains and the oceans have formed the new life in me.

We're going to hear the heartbeat tomorrow, so I'll update more then!

Congrats! This will be so amazing for you...your life will never be the same (in a good way!). I'm so happy for you. Just for the record, my gut says it's a girl...will you be finding out the gender?

Oh, I like your blog :-) Was I the inspiration, or is there another Katie blog-friend?
