Yes, It's True! We're having Baby #2!
We found out about two weeks ago...
I wasn't feeling myself and breakfast just wasn't tasting right. Jed noticed my new picky eating and said: "Madeline, I think you're pregnant..."
"Pregnant!" I gasped.."Bahaha, no- you just made the orange juice wrong and eggs are too cold and slimy."
He replied: "But the eggs just came off the stove... and besides you said the same thing yesterday."
"But remember, I already took a test at the clinic two weeks ago and it came out negative. So I can't be."
"Well, I still think you are."
"Alright then, I'll take a test in the morning."
So, the next morning finally rolls around and I spaced. I didn't remember to take the test until about 11:00... it was different this time. I wasn't excited to find out. I didn't expect a positive answer, I knew it would be negative. All the other times I was giddy and happy to see a positive result only to find a negative one.
But like I said this time was different. I expected a negative answer... then I did a double take at the results... Positive? but...but... !? i'm pregnant?
Flood of emotions and thoughts came through my mind....
How do I break it to Jed? What will my Mom say? How are we going to afford another baby? Isn't this what I wanted? What if I get sick again? How will this pregnancy be different now that I have a little guy? Will I be able to take care of two babies? When am I due? How far apart will they be? What will Jed think? Will people think I'm irresponsible for having two kids so close together? Am I ready for this?
After a couple of minutes my thoughts subsided and then I knew: It would all be okay. Our family was growing and this is how it is supposed to be. The Lord will provide.
