A Miracle


You may remember in December, when I posted about the Christmas Angel? I said it was arragont of humans to believe we can interfere with God's plans through the use of birth control. I just never thought I'd be proving it.

In February of 2007 I had a tubal ligation. It wasn't the easiest decision, but Dana and I both decided that we had our hands full, and that 2 wonderful kids was enough for us. Fast forward 2 years. So if my tubal ligation could interfere with God's plan, how did I see this on March 1st?


This is the egg sac, no baby can be seen yet.


Not only was I definitely pregnant, which we knew from the labwork I was having every few days, but it wasn't ectopic. (yes, I realize that the date on the machine is March 14, 1998. Apparently they don't use this machine much and don't care about the date.) This week I went in to verify that all was well, and I saw the heartbeat.
You probably don't see much. But the arrow is pointing to a light spot. That light spot was clearly beating on the ultrasound. This baby truly is the work of God! While it is still a bit frightening (as in we got rid of almost all of our baby stuff, and we already have a big stack of medical bills) we are also excited to welcome baby number 3 into the world in early November.

Yes, it's like winning the lottery. I was going to say, you should buy a lottery ticket.
I hope you aren't still paying for that tubal.

I am so thankful for that little beating heart. I am so glad that you are giving God the glory for this miracle in your life. It is one of the many awesome things about being a believer - we don't have to see things as a 'fluke' but as a blessing with a purpose.

so amazing -- definitely a miracle! Hooray for God! He must really want this baby in the world, and you are just the family for it. :) bless you FIVE!

I'm surprised you aren't that far along yet. Sometimes, women who get pregnant while still on birth control take a while to even take a test, because they think they are missing a period for another reason. Still, how cool about Kihn5

Wow, Tysa, I didn't know you were pregnant again! Congratulations!! It sounds like we're going to be having our babies right around the same time, my tentative due date is Nov. 3rd. Mine wasn't planned either. Surprises are great, aren't they?
