The ?

So, I guess I'd better answer the questions the question mark raised! I didn't feel like writing a post about it, so it was my little fun way of telling. I sure enjoyed hearing the discussions people had about that "?" I'm really not that far along (10 weeks?), but once we had told family and then we told people at the Bell reunion, there didn't seem much point in keeping the secret. (Sorry that I didn't call some people to tell you before you fould out on the blog...I'll make some calls soon.) We won't know until February who that "?" is, but I think I might find out if its a boy or girl in August. I didn't think I'd ever find out. It feels like spoiling the surprise. But, I'd actually like to fix up the room Kellen & baby will be sharing, since I've never done anything in there. It would be nice to know if I can make it all boy or if I need to keep it more neutral. Maybe that's a silly reason to find out. I also partly don't want to because last time the ultrasound technician told us most first time parents don't find out and most 2nd time parents do find out. I don't want to fit into that generalization for some reason. Maybe that is also a silly reason to not find out. What to you think...to find out or not to find out?

We are very excited. I think I feel more cautious this time and am looking forward to the ultrasound to feel some reassurance that all is good. I had read somewhere, that many 2nd time moms are more nervous...maybe feeling that they lucked out once already with a healthy baby. I think that describes me. I'll have to take the lesson to heart that Kathy shared with the girls at camp about trust. God will take care of us no matter what. No question marks needed with that thought.

Congratulations on your "?"!!! You are not alone in doing more 'worrying' about this pregnancy. I too, each time, find myself thinking that since I have had 1(then 2, now 3) pregancies with no complications, then perhaps I am "pushing my luck" on any future children. Of course, I realize how rediculous that is, and how that clearly shows a lack of faith on my part, but honestly, those feelings are still there at times!! So, just big hugs to you, and our family (and I know many others) are keeping you and your new baby in our prayers. That God is good and his way is perfect, is the only thing we can know for sure! Take care!
