Beta Results!

The nurse just called and.....drum roll please......211!!! I am pregnant!!!!!!! Last time I was pg my first beta was 64.9 so I am cautiously optimistic this time b/c the number is so much higher than last time!!! I am so overjoyed and thankful to God. I will continue to pray that this is our time, but right now I am just going to bask in the good news! Which means God and I are doing some serious daydreaming today and going to celebrate. I am sure some dancing will be involved..hehe Poor God, I am such a bad dancer :D I called my mom at work and she was so thrilled. She worries about what will happen to me if things don't work out..her and my sister both. And I am sure my brother and sis in law too and dad...okay my whole stinkin family! They worry that I will get super depressed and spiral out of control. So I assured her that I am a different person than I was when I was a teenager. I have a totally different relationship with God and now when I am down and sad I cling to Him and He lifts me up. When I am weak, He is strong...so I know I will be okay no matter what. As I type this I wonder how in the world can I ever say thank you enough to God for this life inside of me?? I know I can't, just like I could never thank Him enough for sending His son to die for our sins!!!! All He wants is for us to love Him and worship only Him. He doesn't ask for much does He!!

Throughout all of this wait I have told myself the verse..be still and know that I am God. Everytime I get worried or get scared I say it to myself! I know that that verse says it all. He is God and really that is ALL that matters. I am not the best at quoting scripture nor I am the best at witnessing, but I feel so compelled to ask you this...DO YOU HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD??? If the answer is no I beg you to pray and ask God into your heart and ask Him to forgive you for your sins. We all are sinners. Pray to Him!!! He is there waiting for you, He wants a relationship with you SOOOOO badly. Even more than we want to be a momma! Yes, that is alot. And let me tell you the journey won't be smooth sailing just b/c you are a christian or become saved, but with God things are soooo different. There is this joy you in Him have and His warm love you feel around you. It is truly amazing!!! So I beg you to pray to Him!!! He is such a sweetheart :D Please don't get mad if I didn't do that right. I think that is the first time I have witnessed before so please know that! I just wrote from my heart.

Praise God! One beta down, one more to go on Wednesday. Then my u/s will be on Sept. 14. The longest 2ww of my life :D Love to all!!

*****update*****We are keeping this on the DL b/c we want to wait til our first u/s until we tell everyone. Our family and close friends know and now of course all of you so if you are friends with me on fb please don't post anything about it or if you know me IRL (in real life) please keep it a secret..thanks sooo much!

Dear Dana,
AaaaaHHH!!! That's a scream, bty. I am sooo happy for you and Todd and your whole family. Praise the Lord for His goodness!!! I just showed Abi, my 7 yr. old, your pic because she always reminds me "to pray for Mrs. Dana to have a baby." We'll continue to lift you up to the Lord every day, each time we think of you.
I spent the morning with Shauna and Jakob. It just blesses my heart to no end to see her heart-felt wishes come true. I know God puts that desire in our hearts to be mothers so we
will agree together to pray for God's will to be accomplished! Love ya!!!
