Currently, I Am ...

Loving ... Doctor appointments. Each time I go to the doctor, I get more and more excited because it means that my baby is growing bigger. Yesterday, I was 9 weeks and 2 days (which is when I took my 9 week picture below - whoops), and baby was moving his/her arms and legs for the ultrasound. It made me SO happy. Right now, my baby is the size of a grape, about an inch long. 
Eating ... The most delicious biscuits and sausage gravy for dinner last night. Man, oh man... it was supreme. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Praying ... For two special ladies who are having a Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) next week on a lucky day: 11/11. I started following Elena's blog whenever I too was going through IVF. I found her posts to be inspiring and so helpful! My prayer for Elena is that God will work in her life to provide this miracle that she so desires. I pray that her and her husband are able to grow together in their newly built home with a beautiful bundle of joy that was created in perfect time. I am also praying for another friend, Laura, who is about to undergo a FET as well. She started the IVF process around the same time as we did, but she and her doctors decided they would freeze the embryos and then do the transfer. My prayer for Laura is that God will use this experience to further draw her close to Him, and to place a little miracle inside her belly as further "proof" of his love for her. 
Reading ... I don't know why I even brought this up. Reading gives me anxiety because it all surrounds school, which is killing me. I should probably mention that I truly need y'all's prayers to get through the rest of the semester. I have my comprehensive exam and a midterm today & tomorrow. EEK. #ICanDoIt #IHaveToDoIt

Wondering ... What God's plan is for our home. We made the decision on Sunday to sell our house, but then on Wednesday, we decided that we'd wait a bit longer. There were several reasons for this decision (I won't get into it), but I am just going to pray about it and trust that God has great plans for our current home and our future home. Because our family is growing, plus we're already getting tight in our current home, we are looking for a larger home.

Wanting ... Every piece of clothing from Pink Blush. The more my belly grows, the more I think to myself, "oh, I can still be stylish in that." I just ordered two cutie thingies off their website yesterday - don't you love them?
Looking forward to ... Our official announcement photos that shout, "HEY we're pregnant!" My sister is snapping photos for hubby and I today and of course I plan to share the photos on le blog. We have some cute ideas in mind and I'm so excited!
