My little family and I are so very excited to announce that we are, Lord willing, expecting a new little bundle of joy in mid-July!  Yes, it’s true.

I’m pregnant!!!!


Our little butter bean.

You might have noticed that I’ve been a smidge quieter in the last several weeks. I’ve been fighting all-day sickness with sublingal B-12 tabs, which are lifesavers, and a lot of protein!

My last pregnancy wasn’t a cakewalk to say the least – a 12 centimeter ovarian cyst that landed me in the hospital twice, bed rest, possible surgery which I absolutely denied, changing doctors, 46 hours of excruciating back labor…and a very, very long recovery. Yeah, it was pretty much awful.

The precious babe who is now almost three years old is worth every bit of discomfort and pain that I suffered.  Love that sweet boy!!

Anyway, I’m 11 weeks along and this time, I’m receiving care from a fabulously wonderful midwife.  She is incredibly qualified, dedicated and has a stellar “record.” Woot!

I’m taking things a bit slower with commitments and projects, but I’m scheming up new projects to do in this year and I’m really, really excited to share them with you! 🙂

I would appreciate your prayers for a healthy pregnancy, healthy baby and momma and a healthy {and shorter than 46 hours} labor/delivery!

And that’s the BIG announcement, yo! 😉

  9. Congratulations! Hope all goes well for you! I too have a 3 year old whose birth was difficult- a long labor of 30+ hours ending in eclampsia with me seizing. We were attempting a home birth and the midwife forgot to check my blood pressure. Praise God we both survived and have a healthy energetic son. We are expecting the beginning of May, our second one. This time we are under docor

  10. Congrats, Myra and family!!!:) For some reason, I could not sleep the other night and I thought of you! I just *knew*, in my heart, that you would be having a baby this year!

I can’t wait to follow you along on this journey!!!:) Love, hugs and prayers for you all!♥

  13. Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you! I am due in March and had to put the blog on hold a bit as I too dealt with all day morning sickness. That was tough but finally feeling back to my old self. I hope it passes for you soon since you are 11 weeks! Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy!!

  14. Sorry finish the above. We are under doctors care and plan to do a c-section this time. Even the method of birth has been a journey for us. God bless!

  15. Congratulations!! Wonderful news. And I agree – they are worth the struggle it sometimes takes to get them here. Praying you feel better, full of energy, strength and no more nausea! (I’m almost 10 weeks pregnant and have also been dealing with a lot of nausea in this pregnancy, more than usual for me, so I’m feeling your pain.) 🙂 And YAY for B-12!!!

  16. Comgratulations – the only thing better than being a parent, is making it happen another time 🙂 Good Luck with everything!

  17. Wow thats great news. I will keep you and your little Butterbean in my prayers. Take care of yourself. May God watch over you.

  18. I’m due in early May! One of my favorite things in the world is when my favorite bloggers get pregnant, so I can read all about it– I’m so excited for you! Please share everything you feel comfortable. I’m pregnant with our first, so I’m hungry for all the info I can find.

    May God carry you through this pregnancy, and may we both trust Him to provide all we and our little ones need. 🙂

  19. Congrats!!! Praying that God blesses you with much happiness in the coming year and a easier pregnancy this time around:)))

  20. Congratulations Myra and family! I wish you a very healthy and easier pregnancy and a much quicker delivery and of course a very healthy baby!

  21. Congratulations!! I’m struggling with morning sickness too so I will definitely be checking out the B-12 tablets! Praying that you have an easier pregnancy and labor/delivery this time. We’re still trying to decide for sure about who to use this time around. I would love to do a midwife again but the idea of driving almost an hour and a half after going into labor is a little scary! Will you be delivering at the birthing center as well? So excited for you and hope the sickness eases soon!

  29. I am so happy for you. I have 3 kids and we have spaced 3 years between each, which we really like. I will pray for you, my pregnancies are hard too. I think that is how the Lord helps us to cherish our children. No joy without pain.

  30. That’s wonderful news! I am praying as I type this that your pregnancy goes well and that you have a fabulous experience with your midwife!
    Take care, what a blessing!

  31. I’m going to be praying for you and your baby. God’s blessings are so great and I’m happy for you! I look forward to hear your updates. God bless you and your family.

  32. Congratulations! I only have 3 weeks left until #12 is born. I have been very blessed to have to complications throughout pregnancy, during labor and my children have all been healthy. As a read your post i remember how truly blessed we are. I pray that this time around everything goes much smoother and he or she won’t give you to much grief.

  33. Congrats! Such exciting news!! 🙂 Praying God blesses you with a healthy pregnancy, free of complications and hospital stays, and a very quick and smooth labor/delivery of your precious {and HEALTHY!} new bundle of love! Happy New Year!!!

  34. I’m so thrilled for you and your sweet family!!What a blessed and exciting time! I’ve got baby on the brain but that won’t be happening any time soon so I’ll just live vicariously through your posts. Haha Congratulations! Praying for you and The Bean! 🙂

  35. How exciting! Congratulations! I LOVE that you call your little one your little butter bean – that is the cutest nickname for a little growing baby I’ve ever heard! So cute. Praying for an easier and healthy pregnancy!

  36. Congratulations! Both my pregnancies MEGA sucked, as in a full 40 wks of all day puking both times (zofran helped keep the vomit down to about 3-5 times per day, rather than 10 or more). But man, when I see my indescribably precious girl and boy, it definitely makes it worth every pukey minute. Hooray for you guys, and I’ll definitely pray for some relief!

  39. Congratulations….I love this! We have a lot in common as I read your post. I am due June 30th with our second child – we call our daughter Isabel “little bean” 🙂 I am also delivering with a midwife with this pregnancy and did the first as well. I think you will LOVE it! I will be praying for your pregnancy to go well. Until then, I enjoy your blog & posts!

  40. Congratulations! Try some herbal ginger root tea for any morning sickness. It saved the day many a time for me. It works great for little kids with stomach bugs also. How exciting for you and your family!
