I need a new blog name!!

Alexandrea Grace 3/19/08 I can not believe I will be doing this again, but I sure can't wait! Yes I am pregnant! Bill and I are very shocked, and we were not planning on having any more children. I will be 35 on April 23, and he is gone ALL THE TIME with work, but obviously God's plan is bigger than ours. I just gave all of my maternity clothes away, and donated all of Allie's bottles, and a crib, to Goodwill. It always seems to happen that way,doesn't it?! I am getting mixed responses from family and friends (because I will now have 5 kids), but all I can think about are those ladies that can't even have children. I also think about my blog friends Lori and Carolina Girl that have been waiting and waiting for that special little baby girl, that God has led them to adopt. This reminds me that I am truly blessed to not have any trouble getting pregnant. I want to take this opportunity to thank God for blessing me with 4 beautiful, healthy daughters, and I pray daily for baby #5. I have been blessed more times than I deserve, and for that, I thank God daily! Have a great week ladies.
I guess now I need to figure out how to get that baby ticker for my blog. I also want to have a poll to guess boy or girl! I would bet on pink !

I am so happy for you and your family. You have such a perfectly beautiful family and it's going to be even bigger! What a blessing! I bet it'll be a boy. I just have a feeling! Congratulations! :)

I am kinda a lurker here and there, but wanted to tell you CONGRATS. I would say that whether this was number one or ten. YES God's plan is bigger than us and everything happens for a reason. Your daughters are beautiful and another lovely added would be a huge blessing to your family. Don't get to mad at the extended family responses because they are just shocked as you said were not expecting this news everyone will come around you'll see. Love is a powerful thing. I myself will send prayers for you a safe, easy pregnancy and for a healthy baby and may even ask for a color change this time maybe some blue allowed in the house. Congrats again on your glorious news.

Three under Three said...

I know where your coming from...I was caught off guard with my last two pregnancies. The third one was a complete shocker and proof birthcontrol doesn't always work. My reaction wasn't the best, and my families reaction was half and half. But I would not change a thing. It's hard, but it just works out. Some how some way it just does. Congrats! Babies are the best blessings ever.

CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a blessing!!!! We are on the other side of that where it took us 2 1/2 years to get pregnant with my daughter and we have been trying 2 years now for another. but God is amazing ad will bless all of us when the time is right...

YEAH!!!!! Congratulations!! I am SO excited for you guys! I am one of 6 kids, and it is STILL a blast. Of course growing up was a little crazy, of course people still ask my parents if we are "all theirs" (yes) and how many are step children (zero), but I wouldn't trade any of my siblings!! And, the last two were "surprise blessings" - my mom was 38 and 40 during her pregnancies. You will be GREAT! Congrats!!

melissa said...

You are truly blessed! Congratulations to you and your family.
Blessings to you all!! :)

God is good. So happy for you! We highly recommend 5 kids!! Get yourself a boy and we'll have even ratios! Praying peace for you and wonderful supportive family and friends! I have to agree with you as we've felt overwhelmed by the size of our family at times and see so many who cant conceive. Indeed every one is a BLESSING!!

Congrads! I am turning 42 in December and imagine my surprise a couple of weeks ago when the doctor said "Mrs. Fields I have some good new you are not going thru menapose your PREGNANT" I about hit the floor!

God's plan is always better than our own!

Christin said...

I just found your blog...and I have to smile because I, too, have four precious daughters. AND am expecting our 5th baby (though only a handful of people know at this).

So you're thinking it'll be another girl? I have to admit, I HOPE It is. I love me some girlies. :D
