Well, Lord willing, we will know in December. 🙂 That’s right – I’m pregnant again!!! We are so excited that we will be having another little Hewitt! It was definitely a surprise to us, but we couldn’t be happier. We definitely wanted another child, but we just didn’t think we would get one quite yet. The Lord had other plans, and we are so grateful for His sovereignty in our lives.
So, here’s the story. Two weeks ago I started having some crazy dreams. It didn’t really register with me until the fourth night in a row, when I thought to myself, “these are almost like those crazy pregnancy dreams I have.” Friday night, I had two dreams, the second of which I had to deliver this girl’s baby for her because 911 wouldn’t dial on my phone. That dream woke me up, and I couldn’t go back to sleep.
At 6:30 on Saturday morning I took Olivia (my 10 month old, mind you) with me to Kroger to buy a pregnancy test. I came home and took it, and there was that little pink plus sign. I couldn’t believe it, but it was there. Jeff was still in bed, but by this time Maya had gone in there to snuggle with him. I called her into the hall and then sent her back into the bedroom to give Jeff the test. Jeff sat straight up and with the most solemn face I’ve ever seen on him, said, “Are you serious?!?” That was followed by, “Are you okay?!?”
See, two weeks before, I had been telling him how tired I was and how I just didn’t know when I would be ready to have the next baby. He told me that his reaction to the test was worry for me because he immediately remembered my comments from the previous week. Thankfully enough, that week the Lord had really started to change my heart. I had actually had the thought on Thursday, “I’m not necessarilly ready to start trying again, but if I get pregnant, I’m okay with that.” Funny how that comment sounds like I’m so in control of things, when in reality, it was the Lord who changed my heart because it was in His plan for us to have our next child. 🙂
Jeff and I are thrilled to be having another baby and feel overwhelming blessed that the Lord chose us to be parents again. I go to the doctor on Thursday, so if I get any news then, I’ll be sure to post it. 🙂
