I could only keep it to myself for about an hour before I woke up DH. I had spent that time in prayer crying out to God for assurance that this madness was HIS idea & that HE knew what HE was doing!

So I abruptly woke him up & interrogated him about his 'commitment level' to me & our family & other crazy-newly-pregnant-lady ramblings. He assured me, through sleepy & bewildered eyes that all was well between us. And proceeded to get showered & ready for church.

In the middle of his shower (tmi?) I pulled back the curtain & blurted out the news. He smiled real big & said how exciting. I burst into tears. He then lovingly asked: aaawweee, what's wrong?

I explained all my fears. He assured me he was in a 'much better place now' compared to back then & felt he was now in a much better place w/ God as well.

The next day we told the ktbunch. Uh, they were beyond excited. Berty was running around the house hollering: We're having a baby! {emphasis on the 'we're' part} Sammyboy said it was the best day of his life. Why? I asked. Because we get to go to Disneyland AND have a baby! (we have passes & had already planned to go Monday)

Even my wonderful 15.5 yo son said it was exciting. I'm glad.

I'm still getting used to the idea...slowly but surely.

Some other friends responded SO positively. Like a relieved happiness w/ the sense of: finally something GOOD ti look forward to for your family.

I certainly hope so.
