Surprise!



Chris, Coy, and I are thrilled to announce that in late July/early August, we will be adding another member to our family! We found out that we were pregnant a week before Christmas and couldn't be more excited. Long before we discovered we were expecting, Chris & I were in prayer over this pregnancy, praying for God's perfecting timing and His will to be done. I feel that God's given me this indescribable peace that this pregnancy will be healthy, long, and uneventful!

While we still do not have an answer for Coy's very early arrival, we are being VERY cautious this time around. We have a new doctor, had a "game plan" set many months ago, and will be doing all we can to prevent another early delivery. I have been seen 3 times already and will be followed every week! I am a little over 8 weeks along and my due date is August 27th. However, due to the classical incision I had with my first c-section, I will have a scheduled c-section at 36 weeks (which is around July 30th). The reason for this is because the chances of uterine rupture are higher with a previous classical (vertical) incision after 36 weeks.

We are so thankful for all your love and support. I will keep you updated on how things are progressing. We really are so overjoyed to give Coy a sibling. He is going to be the best big brother!

Oh, my gosh! I started screaming with delight when I saw Coy's shirt and it scared the you know what out of my cat. He jumped a mile high and flew out of here away from the crazy woman at the computer. What awesome news! Many, many congrats. And still many prayers coming your way. Take it easy, but I know that will be hard with your active little man around. With love and prayers, Vicki

Congratulations! I'm a long time lurker (hope that's okay:)and just saw your exciting news. My son was born at 26 weeks and we're now expecting twins in June so I can understand the fear in another pregnancy.

Your little boy is so cute and seems like such a happy baby...he WILL be a great big brother!
