God's Plan

Ok, I am a little bit hesistant to share this, but I hope that through this God receives the glory!
~
Josh and I thought about a year and a half ago that we were ready to have another baby. We started trying in December of 2007, and after 13 months, 2 rounds of Clomid (fertility drug) and Metformin to help me ovulate we finally stopped trying! January of 2009 I decided that trying to conceive was consuming my life, and I was missing just enjoying life and all it had to offer. Josh and I decided that this would be a good time for me to go back to work teaching, so I have gotten my certification renewed and am currently working at the YMCA. Our plan was that we would start trying again in August or September that way I could complete a full year of teaching before we had the baby, God willing that we would have another one.
~
God's ways are not our ways, and he is TRULY the ONLY giver of life! I took fertility medicine for 6 months and was not pregnant!
~
However...
~
To our surprise, we are now expecting our second child!
~
We are really excited, unsure of how the next year is going to unfold for me regarding work, blessed beyond measure, and full of wonder and awe at a God so great and amazing!
~
I am fairly early, but if you know me you know I CANNOT keep a secret! I went to the doctor today, and I am 6 weeks and 2 days. I am due February 3, 2010. Hudson will be almost 3 1/2 when the new baby comes. He is really excited even though I don't think he fully understands what is to come. Tonight he laid his head on my belly and said, "Hey baby." *sigh* He melts my heart!
~
I am still a little bit heartbroken for those of you that I know who are struggling with infertility. I remember how hard it was hearing (from everyone it seemed) that they were pregnant when I wanted so badly to be pregnant. Know that I am still praying for you!

Our precious baby #2!

*Being that it is still so early, I have not told work yet, so if you happen to work with me please keep this a secret. :-) Thank you.
