I had been sick with pneumonia for several weeks. I was supposed to have a follow up chest X-ray done the first or second week in May to make sure my lungs had cleared completely. The day I was planning to have the X-ray done, I felt very sick. Clint made plans to take off work to watch the girls and I just could not go get the X-ray. I had that thought in the back of my mind...I wonder if I could be pregnant. Since you can not be exposed to radiation while you are pregnant, I decided to take a pregnancy test just to make sure that I wasn't. Well, to my surprise and Clint's surprise, I am! We knew that we wanted to have another child, but we weren't necessarily planning to have one so soon. I am still breastfeeding Elizabeth and she is not showing any signs of weaning soon. I was hoping to be done breastfeeding one before becoming pregnant with another, but I know that I am not the first woman to be in this situation and I know that God is taking great care of both babies and will make sure they both get what they need.
I am 9 weeks along today. Next week we will have our first ultrasound and we are so excited to see our little peanut and hear his or her little heartbeat.
