Are you sitting down???

Go ahead and gasp.....it's ok....Schuyler and I have done our fair share of gasping the past week or so
. This is VERY much a surprise to us as it is to you. You see, I was told many years ago that I would never be able to get pregnant without some help and I had to have help conceiving Skyler and Madison. But... SURPRISE....god has his own plans.

How it all went down...
Since Madison was born Schuyler and I have talked about having another child but neither one of us have been 100% ready. Then last week Schuyler was gone one evening and I was home alone with the girls. So I did what most woman do when home without their husband....I watched all the "chick shows" that I wanted!!! {grin} So right before bed I watched a show on TLC about woman who where pregnant and didn't know it. Then I went to bed and dreamt that I was one of those woman all night. That silly show and dream stuck in my head for 2 days causing me to think...."Since I am never regular, if I was pregnant, I would never know". So on a paranoid whim a few days later I bought a pregnancy test and over the next few days....I took 5...yes 5... positive pregnancy test. I guess it just took that many to sink in that it was true. Its seems that since we could not make our minds up, god made the decision for us. This goes to show you who's hands everything really is in.

As it stands today...
I went to the doctor today for confirmation and ultrasound to see how far along I am, since I had no idea. According to the ultra sound and the doctor I am 6 weeks along and we saw the heart beat and all. I know it is a bit early to be sharing but I just HAVE to share. :o) I just keep asking myself...."how long would I have gone had I not watched that crazy show?" Schuyler and I have gone from full on freak out and disbelief to extremely excited and we are happy to share this exciting news with everyone.
Both of the girls are excited about the news and are hoping for a baby brother. I think it is because they don't want another girl to have to share the girly toys and dress up clothes with. :o) But, the questions sure started.

Madison: How did the baby get in your tummy? Did you eat it?
Me: (giggle) No...God put it there.
Madison: How did god put it there?
Me: ummmmm...
Madison: Was it magic?
Me: Yes, god works magic all the time.
(Whew that was a tough one. I've gotta get more prepared for these questions.)

Skyler: Will I have to change messy diapers?
Me: No, not unless you want to.
Skyler: Good, I want to feed it a bottle but you can change the messy diapers.

OMG!!! Okay I have to fess up, I was worried about your "life in limbo", so I asked mamaw what the heck was going on. I know I was being nosey, but I was worried about you. I had to pull her leg and she made me swear not to tell anyone, and I didn't I promise. Congrats to your WHOLE family!! Lisa
