Know

You know you've lost a baby when you pray you will be able to bring your next one home from the hospital. Few women know the pain of coming home empty-handed to a closet filled with newborn baby clothes ready to be worn, a baby book waiting to be filled in with all the "firsts," and a diaper bag filled with all the essentials that will not be used.

Thoughts like this probably never cross the mind of a mom who has never lost a baby and is pregnant. Why should they? They are against everything we feel in our hearts as moms. It's against everything normal. I never had thoughts like these before Reese was born.

My heart now is filled with so many desires and prayers. That next time I'll be able to walk out (or be wheeled out) of those hospital doors with a baby in my arms. Our third baby. GOD's baby. Wow. What a day! It gives me butterflies in my stomach and chills all over just thinking about this.

I also think about the moment the nurse places our next son or daughter in my arms. I remember with Zach and Reese. Now I look forward to this day with as much anticipation as I did our wedding day. I just don't think I'll ever let go. ; )

My mind continues to wonder about the main events of this day. Our third child's birthday. I think about when Jason and I will first hear his or her little (or hopefully loud) cry. Reese never made a sound, but what a shout her life made and continues to be.

I want this day to be filled with joy and praise, not worry or fear. Tears of happiness and not of despair. A day and a baby covered with prayer.

Only GOD knows the exact day, the hour, the minute, (and everything that may happen) but we are thrilled to announce our next baby should arrive in July.

WE ARE GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER BABY!!!!!

July 28th is my due date. One month before Reese's due date last year August 28th.

Is GOD good or what!?

Thank you thank you thank you, Jesus, for this gift of life. Laughter. Redemption.

Are you jumping up and down, crying tears of joy, and praising the LORD yet!?

I am. ; )

We're also holding our breath and clinging to hope. Here we go...

Be at rest once more, O my soul,
for the LORD has been good to you.

Psalm 116:7

I just came across your blog and I can relate to this. Everything you said is SO true! I gave birth to a still born son Dec. 18, 1999. With my second pregnancy those same questions went thru my head.

Congratulations....it is amazing the ways the lord works. I am so happy for you and your family to be blessed with ANOTHER sweet baby!!!

Melody said...

So happy for you Katie! I am not going to try and compare my situation with you but I too lost a baby in 2007, my first son, and when pregnant with my daughter that was what I pleaded with the Lord. I wanted a "take home" baby. And the Lord did provide and even at the age of 2 I have not let go. She is my everything and I think I am more than entitled to hold her a little longer than normal. Will be praying for this pregnancy that everything will be well with you and God will anoint you with peace.

God Bless,
Melody

Tracychele @ The Week-Ender said...

OOOOOHHHHH Katie! I was reading the post (wiping tears so I can type now) thinking "Is she trying to say what I think she is trying to say?". I just kept reading and thinking it was coming...and it did! Yay! I know you are beside yourself with excitement. You will be ok. Allow yourself to be excited. I know Reese is. I am so happy for you and Jason and Z. Praise God! This is certainly a reason to keep your sweet head up! You will never forget Reese, but you deserve to have this. Do not forget that. It is what she would want. You are a good Mother to Z and Reese and you have plenty of love for this little blessing!

Teale said...

My heart is leaping with JOY for you! All the thoughts you just mentioned, I've had them ALL. Our second pregnancy was just that... filled with happiness and yet fear after losing our first after she was only with us 10 hours. God had to remind me on so many days throughout my pregnancy that He is in control. Take it one day at a time. When you finally are leaving with that sweet baby, it is a feeling you will not be able to put into words. Praying for a happy, healthy addition to your sweet family.
