Pleased to announce....
Pleased to announce my positive pregnancy test!
The names are all ready to go.:
Rafe Charleston Henry
Willa Penelope Grace
Here's a little background.. I have 3 small kids and have had 3 miscarriages. I suffer with hyperemesis gravidarium (HG) which is not morning sickness, but more like relentless violent food poisoning that doesnt let up for Months. I also suffer from a condition known as POTS, which basically is my bodys inability to cope with gravity. I can't stand up at all.
I dealt with that with all 6 pregnancies, absolutely awful. I feel great in between pregnancies! Lol
My last pregnancy was brutal. God used that to break my morality, and I finally saw my wicked heart. That's when I gave myself to Jesus Christ. He IS my purpose and joy now. Message me if youd like to know more
We are thrilled to be pregnant again. Nervous, but thrilled. We Love love being parents. New life is always a miracle. I am praying that if its Gods will, that He will heal me and let me experience a normal healthy pregnancy. I would love it if you would pray for me too. .
Rafe was chosen for my dad Ray. It also comes from Jehovah Rapha, God is my Healer. Im praying God will heal me. If not, that He will heal my heart during the sickness.
Charleston Henry: Charleston is where my husband was born, one of our favorite places. Henry is family name.
Willa: means Resolute Protection. Praying God will resolutely protect me and my little one!
Penelope: means Faithful or spider weaver. God is faithful! And He is weaving a masterpiece in my life and in this little ones life.
Grace: God has lavished His grace upon me. Grace upon grace upon grace.
I.am so excited for whatever is in store for our family, and I appreciate the prayers. Especially for Rafe Charlie/Willa Penelope
Wow! What a story and congratulations! Incredible! Prayers for you during this time, and hopefully you won't feel so sick with this baby.
Gorgeous names, btw!
Congrats on your pregnancy! With your names already chosen that pressure is off. :) You will be able to concentrate on keeping your mind, body and soul strong so you can have a healthy baby. Take care of yourself and I will pray that everything goes well.
Yes, thats such a great point! Thank you :)
Wow, congrats! My mom had HG and told some horror stories. By the time she gave birth to me, she was hospitalized on an IV because she could keep nothing down. She didn't gain weight the first 6 months of her pregnancy. I know it is no laughing matter, and you are a trooper!
My BFF also had it, but they put her on some sort of medication that really helped. I don't remember what it was called and I can't find it via google! I pray you will have an easier pregnancy, or get some solutions to help with your sickness.
Yup. HG is pretty serious. And POTS was actually worse for me. I take Zofran, and that has pretty much kept me alive. If I didnt have Zofran, I would need a PICC line.
My love goes out to all the HG survivors!
wrenmaple - Congratulations on your pregnancy! You and your family will be in my prayers during this time! Both the names y'all have selected are fantastic!
Congrats Wren! What wonderful news! You will be in my prayers, and I hope this pregnancy is a healthy and normal one :-) I never know how to pronounce Rafe. Is it a long A sound and silent e like rate? Love the names, and how meaningful they are for you.
