Big News and pictures


I shared on facebook already, so I figure I'll share here as well. I'm 4 months post-op and 3 months pregnant. The pregnancy was NOT expected, not planned, and was attempted to "prevent". When you have Weight loss surgery you're advised to not get pregnant for 1 to 2 years after surgery. I can say that condoms are obviously not 100% and well we have a little one on his or her way, that proves that!! Although this blessing was not planned by us, we know that the Lord planned for this life and that He will bless this little miracle.
I have seen everyone on my weight loss team and they are all thrilled and so very encouraging to me. They were definitely  more excited for me, than I was for a few weeks. It took me a couple months to truly have it settle in, but I'm there now and starting to feel excited. Our youngest 3 are excited,the two big boys are accepting! :) E says she doesn't care if it's a boy or a girl, she is just excited to have another baby in the house! N wants a boy! O doesn't quite grasp it, but her little world is going to be rocked. I'm due just 3 days after I was due with O. I actually went into labor 21 days before my EDD with O, and I went into labor 14 days before my EDD with N. I'm interested to see if I go into labor again or if I'll make my planned c-section!! I'd prefer to not go into labor, but I have no control over that part and will just trust the Lord that this baby will come on the day the Lord has planned!! I'm officially 12 weeks, so one more week and I'll be in my 2nd trimester!

I have also now lost 81 lbs. I go see my nutritionist on Tuesday, so I guess we'll see if I've lost anymore.
I made a new collage, 2 actually front view and side views, that are up top. The first ones on each are from today and they go throughout the last 4 months.
