I worked with a lady once who told me that all she and her husband had to do to get pregnant was wash their underwear together. Fertility is certainly a blessing, but sometimes it seems to defy the odds. I never actually asked “How did this happen?” because it seems so obvious, but let me just say it isn’t always obvious. It’s just the will of the Lord.
Pregnancy tests claim 99% accuracy. For the first few days after I took the test when I referenced the subject Richard would respond “One percent.” In other words, he was in denial.
At our wedding reception we danced to a song titled “Come What May” and I had those words engraved on the inside of Richard’s wedding band. Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin added “And love it” to our mantra in a conference talk a few years ago. Now that the initial shock of an unexpected pregnancy is over and the idea of FOUR children is settling in, we have reached the “love it” part. We feel very blessed and we are very excited.
Baby #4 is due April 8th.
**For my friends who read this that are currently living under the gloomy cloud in Kuna I apologize if my timing seems insensitive. Truth be told, making a big announcement is always hard for me (saying something on a blog sometimes doesn’t really feel like you’re saying it) but this secret is getting too hard to keep.
