I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant

Have you seen this show?
Pretty ridiculous right?
Totally unbelievable?
Ya, I'm a believer.
Found out about a week ago that I am 11 weeks pregnant.
I was clueless.
It was a fluke that we even found out.
I know it sounds crazy. Like um, weren't you missing something?
No, I wasn't.
We hadn't pulled the goalie.
I had no reason to even suspect.
My stomach had been hurting for about two months. I thought I had an ulcer. The doctor sent me in for a C.T. and came back saying that everything looked good in my stomach. . . except there was something abnormal about my uterus. He said that based off of the images they suspected a couple of things could be going on: 1- There was a cyst growing. 2- There was some kind of tumor. 3- I had miscarried some time ago and my body was unable to get rid of it.
Two days later I went in for an ultrasound so we could figure out just what was going on.
Longest two day wait of my life.
I get there and the lady starts the procedure. She says, "Oh, there's a baby." In my mind I think, "How sad." Then the lady says, "watch it's moving." MOVING? .... MOVING? I ask the stupid question, "so it's alive?" The lady kind of laughs and says, "Ya, and it's pretty big." We heard the heartbeat and watched him squirm around. Holy cow, ready or not, here comes baby #2!
The craziest part about this, is that we had decided that we weren't going to try to have any more children. Of course we wanted more children, but we found out that there is about a 8% chance that either me or the baby will die in the process. We had made this decision maybe a week or two before the C.T. It hurt so bad to think that we weren't going to get to be parents again. But we knew that we had been so blessed to have Milo, and decided that we would find a way to be happy with just one.
Well, Heavenly Father obviously had different plans for us.
We are optimistic that everything is going to be fine, because we know without a doubt that this baby was not an oops. It was an answer to our prayers. We did not know if we had the faith to take that leap again. If ever there was a clear answer, that kicking baby on the monitor was it.

Walls, Windows, and Doors... and Snow:(

We didn't beat the first snow storm of the year, but our house is coming along GREAT!
I can't wait to fill up those rooms.
