    We found out Thursday we are expecting. A complete shock and surprise, as not only were we planning on not having any more children, but we were taking measures to prevent it. While birth control might be 99.9% effective, God is 100% effective when He wants you to be the .1% :)

    My wife was high risk with both children, and both came a month early with the last one having more complications than the first. We also do not have maternity coverage (as we were not considering having any more), so we will have to pay for this all out of pocket which might be the final nail in the coffin in regards to bankrupting us.

    I know God is in control and He will meet our needs. Please pray for our child and mom's health. Please pray that we will overcome this bump financially as well.

    First, congratulations! Even though you offer many of the normal and some not-so-normal fears, another child is always a blessing. Prayers for your bride, and for God to guide the doctors with wisdom and sure hands.

    Second, Kathy and I know somewhat how you feel. She had problems with childbearing, and our second, well, let's just say that God used that to bring us to Him, eventually. When the next child came along, we were full of fear, and Kathy had trouble carrying him, but he turned out just fine, and he'll be married this August to his life-long sweetheart.

    And, third, I'm gonna gig you about God's sovereignty... :thumbs: :smilewinkgrin:

    Thanks everyone for the prayer and encouragement. It will be an adjustment, but we are excited. I know God is in control of this (sovereign) ;)

    Congrats, Web! Praying for health and safety of your wife and little one. By the way, my dh was the "very unexpected" third child and was a huge surprise to his parents, but not to God. My in-laws will be the first to admit that he's been greatly used of the Lord and has been nothing but a blessing to them from the start. I pray this is also so in your case. God must have special plans in store for all of you.
