7 quick takes

#1 - I'm a new soul in this strange place...


#2 - So if you were reading this blog all week you probably noticed I'm having cravings and I mentioned something about rumors.  And then there was the OK Go song, Here It Goes Again

#3 - I'm pretty sure that song is about something very different than a married woman having another baby with her loving husband but the words of the chorus are just so perfect!  "Just when you think you're in control, Just when you think you've got a hold, Just when you get on a roll, Here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again.  Oh here it goes again!

#4 - So, yes, I am pregnant!

#5 - 15 weeks (4 months) with a due date of May 16th.  I think I'm having a girl.  So does Lydia, and my friend Katie, and my mom, and Travis, and my mother-in-law.  I hope we're all right.

#6 - I have spoken with my homebirth midwife and had an appointment with a midwife at an ob-gyn's office.  I'm  still not 100% sure where we will birth this time around but, just like with all my births, I have been praying and thinking about what is best as I try to learn where God wants me to be.  We have already gotten some pressure to be in a hospital but I don't want to make any decisions based on peer pressure, other people's fears, or out of spite.  Please pray for us as we continue to discern this decision.

#7 - But more than anything please share in our joy!  Travis and I felt that God was calling us to trust Him and have this baby and we are very excited about our fifth child!

  3. I'm so excited for you and your precious family! Yay! I get to add you to my, "St. Gerard, please pray for my many pregnant friends this 2011!"

    See! God WAS setting my table, but for YOUR cravings! (Although 2011 isn't up yet - I guess technically a 2011 Landry pregnancy could happen in the next 5 weeks...)

    [no. that was not a sneaky way to say we're pregnant or even trying to be.]

  7. Congratulations!!!! What wonderful news! May God pour out grace and blessings upon you as you prepare for this next baby. I have no doubt that He will lead you as you seek His will - "Be still and know that I am God" - just popped to mind. Thanks for sharing your great news!

    (On a completely superficial note, I'm a little jealous that you got to be pregnant for Thanksgiving - gotta love those stretchy waistbands) :)

  14. God is entrusting the right couple for five of his precious babies. I am so happy for you!!! I hope Lydia finally gets a sister, but then again, your boys are pretty darn adorable, so a fourth one would be awesome! Ah, well, chances are pretty good that you'll have one or the other ;) I'm honored to be able to follow your family's story on your blog. Thanks for writing!!
