We Are PREGNANT again!!!

We are PREGNANT!!!

What a BLESSING!  What a special post this is!  You only get a couple great surprises in your life and I am overwhelmed with thankfulness that I get to write a post like this!

With Brielle we got preggo the first try! Super Easy.
This little one took us 5 months.  We knew God would have the perfect timing and we had faith in him.  
But boy, when you want a baby you want a baby! 
Each negative pregnancy test broke our hearts just a little bit more.  

I was a hardly a day late but I ran out anyway and got a pregnancy test.  I didn't even wait till morning I tested right then!  I was elated when I saw that plus sign!!!  I stood in the bathroom, 
raised my hands to my God ,cried and thanked him over and over again!  He's just so good, all the time!

I didn't want to wait to tell Landon.  This was election night.  We were all bummed, so what better way to make the election completely unimportant to us and  lift everyone's spirits but with this little blessing.
I got out the video camera (hoping my mom was still up too but she and gone to bed) and began video taping.  I asked what he thought of the election.  Then he asked me what I thought.... I said WHO CARES!!I'M PREGNANT!!! and busted out the positive pregnancy test.  Landon's eyes got huge! 
He couldn't believe it!
I was going to tell my mom that weekend and surprise her with a cake that said baby Gann 2013 like we did with Brielle.   As the days went on we decided to wait to tell anyone else.  I know many many other people try for years to have a baby and 5 months is nothing to most, but it was a bit of a shock to us because it happened so easily the first time and we expected the same this go round.  I had been taking my basil body temp and charting it and bought at home ovulation kits as well.  With all that said we were nervous to tell everyone so soon (we told with Brielle when I was only 5 weeks along) so we decided to keep it secret till I was farther along, just in case.
So no, my mom who is living with us had no idea....or so I think she doesn't ha.

   It's faint but it's there!!!

 I ran out right away and stocked up on everything a pregnant woman should be eating!

We forget everyday that I'm pregnant!  With Brielle it was the only thing I thought about and Landon too.  I guess we have her now so our minds are a bit occupied and we just aren't as scared and worried the 2nd time around.  No need to pile up on books and take classes.  We've got this!  I never had a feeling of what it might be with Brielle, I told myself boy cause I wanted a girl so bad and didn't want to be dissapointed.  Well I don't have a feeling this time either but every time I think about being pregnant "boy" pops into my head.  Kinda funny.
The biggest joy in all of this is that Landon and I will be giving Brielle the greatest gift of all, a sibling.
She's going to be the best big sister I just know it and can't wait to see them together!

Oh and since I was keeping close track of my ovulation days....I knew exactly when I conceived.
  Hey we're planners, can't help ourselves!
This may be TMI for some but I want to remember everything!
Brielle was conceived...February 6th
Baby number 2........October 25th which happens to be Brielle's sweet is that!
Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
