I wanted to wait until we had "official" confirmation before I said anything. Plus I wanted to give Jessica opportunity to share the news before I did. I didn't want to steal her thunder so-to-speak.
Ronnie and Jessica are expecting another baby!!! As some of you may remember....they miscarried their first baby on Easter Sunday. They have been praying for and trying for another baby since she healed from that. Ronnie called me on Saturday and told me that she had tested positive for pregnancy with a home test. She took two tests and both were positive. So we knew she was expecting...but I wanted to give her time to go to the doctor and get the official confirmation and a due date before I posted about it.
She went to the doctor this morning and it was confirmed. They are expecting a baby that is due on May 29, 2009. Amen!!! We praise the Lord for this opportunity He is giving them. She says she feels much differently this time. She says each of her symptoms are normal and things are much different than last time. She has peace in her heart that all is going to be well this time. Ronnie is trying to give it time before he feels confident I think. He wants her to get past these next couple of weeks before he lets it sink in. I can't say that I blame him.
They are very excited though and so are all the rest of the family. I'm going to be a Nana again!!! Yes...I say again!! I was a Nana the first time they were expecting even though that baby is in Heaven with Jesus. I don't care how far along she was the first time...there was a baby in her womb. We will all see that baby when we get to Heaven. We do look forward to getting to hold this one though.
Please pray for them. They are seeing answers to prayer already concerning this pregnancy. Financially things are being met and physically things are being taken care of with Jessica. I'm just so proud for both of them!!!
To keep up with her pregnancy you can go to her blog and read her updates.
