Katherine Rae and Jaden Daniel

We had our appointment today with our new OB. It was a follow up from all the testing Kevin and I went through the last couple of weeks. It seems all is well. Kevin's testing came back clear and clearer and more clear. My test… not so much…. but still better than either of us expected or imagined.

Our Dr. does not even think he would classify me with PCOS, and if I did have it, it would be a very mild case...this I am claiming as a healing miracle! I do have a slight increase in a level that can sometimes be caused by a growth on my pituitary gland, it raises awareness and at this moment in time it is benign and not of concern. I will continue to get this checked every six months. If it continues to grow it can cause problems with conceiving, but we are not claiming these things. But please pray for me as I deal with fear and feeling overwhelmed even though our doctor is not concerned I tend to be worried.

As of right now Kevin and I are officially "trying" and are excited about it. We will try on our own for three months and if we are not still pregnant we have appointment in June to discuss what steps we will take next. But we are believing I will be pregnant before then, my next appointment will be to see a baby on that ultrasound!

I am feeling excited!!! I still deal with fear but I know I can’t live in that and I must move past it.

I keep imagining our baby in my arms, the warmth of their sweet body, their tiny little hands and feet. I picture their first smile, giggle, step and word. I know that God did not give me these desires if it was not His desire. I am looking forward to meeting our third child, our little Katherine Rae or Jaden Daniel. We pray for them, dream of them and already love them. I know it will be in God’s perfect timing and plan and I rest in that. I am at peace with this journey and even though I still have my hard moments I claim the future of what God is going to bless Kevin and me with!

(Yes these are my future names, I share them with you so you can claim it with me, not so you can steal them, and if you do Kevin will track you down!!!)

I'm glad I'm done naming my children b/c I would steal Jadon.....hehehehe. Cute names! Can't wait until we get to meet him/her! love u!

Stacey said...

I'm hoping with you, Beth!!

I know we've talked about this before, but both of those middle names are at the tippy-top of my list too (also as middle names). I think that is so cool!

Can't wait for you to have the opportunity to use these wonderful names you've chosen for your children.

I have been following your blog for quite some time. I think I was better about commenting before you went private. After that, i still received your updates in my email, but didn't comment anymore because of the format of them. So I do appreciate seeing you in the public eye again.

Aside from all of that, I wanted to say that I have always enjoyed reading your blog. You have a beautiful way with words and a love for God that radiates through your blog. I'm excited to see what God has in store for you and will be claiming your promises for you too. I won't steal your names either. I'm the same way- I have my names picked out and I love to share them, but I will hunt anyone down who decides to take them from me! :-)

I wish you the best!

That's wonderful Beth! We can be happy scared together as we both try for a baby!
I agree that God gave you those desires because they are His. What a lovely way of putting it.
My little girl would also be a Cathryn, although spelt differently. It's my second name... So hopefully I won't get tracked down by Kevin!

How exciting -- I'm happy and hopeful for you and Kevin!!

Michelle Hill said...

Hi Beth! You are so funny! You know we will be praying for those names and more importantly those babies! I think it gives more power to our prayers to call out and claim those babies by name. God is so good! I'm ready to hold your babies too!
I love ya and I'm proud of ya!

Oh Beth! I will be praying for you and Kevin. What an increddible journey you have been on, and what amazing glory you have both brought to God through all of the ups and downs. I just wanted to pray a couple verses over you two.
1. Isaiah 26:3-4 Lord, keep Beth and Kevin in perfect peace as they keep their minds stayed on You, and as they trust You. Lord, show them how You truly are an everlasting rock, their everlasting rock that they can forever trust and depend on with every detail of their lives. Bless them abundantly. Give them peace.
2. Psalm 27: 13-14 Lord, I pray that Kevin and Beth will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living as they seek to grow their family. As they wait on You, Father, reknew their hope, strengthen them, give their hearts courage.
I love you guys! I cant wait to see what God is going to do as He grows your family.

Hi Beth and Kevin!

Thank you for so candidly sharing about your walk and experiences in married life. I'm so grateful that you are walking confidently in your Abba:) We are choosing to claim this with you. Can't wait to have updates!

Praying the Lord delivers you from all your fears (Psalm 34:4) and praying you are holding little Katherine Rae or Jadon Daniel very soon. I love the names you and Kevin have chosen. I thought I should mention that John and I had picked out Katherine for a girl as well, but a different middle name. So I hope that's okay:)

I don't know how I missed this posting. I got on today to see your "new camera pic's" and spotted this one, as well. I will be praying for you and Kevin BIG TIME, and I know Ryan will be as well. May He bless you and keep you.

Hi Beth,
I love reading your blog! you have an amazing heart for the Lord and I am so proud of your patience and your faith.
Jason and I are also "trying" for a little one. The first time round we conceived within the first week this time it's taking a lot longer. I think we are at 5 months now. Sometimes I get scared that something is wrong but we are trusting the Lord to bring a child into our lives in HIs timing. We are so blessed to have our little Levi already but the yearning for another one is sooo strong. It has taken me by surprise since I thought that once I had one the desire would fade or at least not be as strong, but it is =)
I'll be praying for you two and for your little katherine or Jaden. I love the names by the way!
love you
