nine is fine.

Yesterday afternoon I told my husband he had to hurry up and go look in the bathroom. With a concerned look on his face, he went in and then returned a few moments later.
In his hand, he held the reason I had sent him in there...
He smiled and announced to all the kids, "Hey everyone, Mommy and Daddy have some really great news!"
All the kids turned from what they were doing, "What is it?"
They thought we were going to have ice cream for lunch-- or something like that.
"Mommy's gonna have another baby!" he shouted. They all cheered.
"What's it gonna be, a boy or a girl?" Most said they wanted a girl. "I guess we'll see," he said.
Unseen to the kids, he held a positive pregnancy test.
Now I've taken quite a few pregnancy tests in my day (I've already taken two this past month) , but this one nearly jumped off the tester.
I didn't think it would happen-- obviously I knew it could, but for some reason, I thought I was done. God knew.

Thoughts for the day said...

Who said having two children is the norm any more I have read more blogs with six or more children and am amazed that is true. Blessings to you and yours, you must have a lot of patience I am afraid I would not do so well. God will give you the strength and the means to provide for them all.

Wow! Congratulations! I'm so happy for you! Nine IS fine...and I can really say that for sure because you know I have nine :)

I wish you an easy first trimester, a blissful second trimester (in my opinion always the best time of pregnancy!) and a restful third trimester...with a healthy baby at the end of it :)
