I had recently written about how hard it was to wait for another baby. With our plan all in place, we would be waiting for two years before we decided on a fifth child. Well, you know what they say about telling God your plans?

I had not been feeling overly great for a couple days, just over tired and not normal. It was getting close to my cycle time so I figured it was just that. Well on the day my cycle was suppose to start, nothing happened. I thought about waiting a couple more days before I worried to much but I needed to go to the store anyway so I grabbed a test.

I told myself I was being silly, there was no way that it would come up positive. Right away I noticed a faint line, I was shocked. I had bought a two test packet and planned one using it in the morning, I caved and used it a couple hours later. Another faint line came up. After I got the kids in bed, I ran back out to the store. I needed to grab a couple things I forgot anyway, so it was a good excuse to grab a different test, I grabbed a digital for morning as well. I took the test when I got home and it came up clearly positive. There was no denying it, I was pregnant.

I debated on telling my husband right away or waiting a bit. I finally decided to get a sleeper out that we had used for all the kids and wrap the test in it. I called him into our room and handed it to him. He was speechless. We were not expecting this in the least.

The next morning I took my digital and it of course came up pregnant. The shock was still very much there but it was sinking in for me. I found a female OB right away, got my first appointment scheduled and we have decided to wait to reveal this to our friends and family until after I hit the twelve week mark. We are planning a clever way of revealing and I do not want to tell my kids before I have heard the heart beat. I know they would be devastated if I lost this baby and I think it is better just to wait for now.

So much for our plan but I know that all babies are a blessing. Our little surprise will be very loved.

    My daughter in law is using cloth diapers that have been shared from others. Her daughter is experiencing serious staph infections. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution? Thanks

    My daughter in law is using cloth diapers on her 18 month old daughter. The daughter is getting serious staph infections which I think may be caused by these passed around diapers. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, did you find a solution? Thanks
