God's Providence Rocks!

Spoke to the doctor yesterday. Everything from my last blood test is good. I have now been released to an Ob!

Rewind... Last week, upon finding out we are pregnant, I immediately called my doctor. they had me come in that day (last Thursday) to do a blood test. Got results back the next day,and it was a low positive of pregnancy. This just meant that we were definitely pregnant, but on the brink of miscarriage or just really early. They said that if I wasn't having problems, which I wasn't, they wanted to do another test in a week. So I went back Thursday, got results yesterday and my levels had more than doubled! So, we definitely have a baby!

God's providence has been amazing and present during this short time already. We had been waiting on maternity insurance to kick in (March 20th) to start trying to start a family. Obviously, we got started earlier than planned! I called my insurance company the day after we found out to see what we could do to get them to cover this whole thing since we are only a little over a month away. She first told me congratulations and then let me know that anything I had done before March 20th would not be covered but after March 20th, we were fully covered! I had convinced myself that it would be considered a pre- existing condition and we would just be written off. No dice, God had his hand on it the entire time!

And another... I had been researching Obs and happened upon one I liked so I checked her credentials. Still liked her. Talked to my doctor to see who was on her list of preferred Obs and the one I found was on it! So I called her office to get an appointment. First appointment they had open? March 20th! So my first appointment is March 22nd (to give us a cushion). Woo Hoo! I must say that God rocks! He totally looks out for His sheep. He has been with us and provided for us the entire time we have been here in Saint Louis. It's amazing. He's amazing.

I can't wait to see what happens next. This year is going to be a wild ride I think. Juggling school, work, getting ready for the maybaby, and whatever else pops up! We' ll keep you updated as all of this unravels!

Our World Changes

This is the first blog of many. We just found out that we're pregnant! WOW! I don't have an official due date yet. It's still too early to know. I am extremely tired, around lunchtime I break down no matter how long I slept the night before. I haven't really been sick. I'm sure that will come. No weird cravings yet either. So far, it's boring. We have already decided that we are not going to find out the sex of the baby or share names we think of. It will just be one big surprise for all!

So in light of the pregnancy, I decided to start a blog to keep everyone informed on the progress and to have a place for us to remember things we did, feelings we had, and pictures we took.

That's all for now. I will try to keep this updated.

Happy Valentine's Day!
