Happy Valentine's Day

What a road our family has been on these last 6 months. We went from a devastating couple of days with our miscarriage at 15 weeks to coming to terms with our loss to finding out 6 weeks after our miscarriage we were already 5 weeks pregnant. Yes, we were very shocked, amazed, felt blessed, and a little nervous because we weren’t trying and I didn’t know what my body would do. It had been through a lot. Once again we felt our Heavenly Father’s hand in our life. He knows what is best for our family. We took this path together and I have to say at the beginning I was more nervous than anything else. We had just been through a lot. I am so grateful for Ryan and all that he does for our family. I am glad that he holds and honors his priesthood. The night we found out we were pregnant he gave me a blessing. I had a good feeling and peace from Ryan’s blessing. This pregnancy wasn’t easy at the beginning. It had nothing to do with our past. There were just a few worries with this one. I was told not to do much and put as little stress on me as possible so my body could do what it needed to. So I stopped running, tried to relax, and sit on the couch as much as possible. That was a little hard when moving week came when I was 10 weeks along. But Ryan made sure I didn’t lift anything heavy and do too much. With the worries of this one, we feel like we have been blessed to watch this one grow. We had ultrasounds done at 6 weeks, 7 and a half weeks, 10 weeks, and then 20 weeks. I feel like I already know this one because of all we have been through. I know we have a strong little one that is so excited to come to earth, gain a body, and join our family that they couldn’t wait. We can’t wait for our little one to join us too!! We are due July 3- my dad’s birthday! I am 20 weeks along and we just shared our news with family. We are glad to have this secret out!! We are having a BOY!!!! I have to say, Ryan and I both could not stop smiling the whole way down to the valley after getting our exciting news of a boy!!! I don't think I have stopped smiling- our little blessing!!!

We love the great news!!! Take care of yourself! I know that is hard when you are a mom and "taking care of yourself" is the last thing on your mind, but it will really pay off in the end!!! Good luck, and lots of love coming to you from Bagdad, AZ
