I don't have to be a shut in anymore!

Hallelujah....I have spent most of the summer laying on the couch. I mean seriously, it's too hot to do anything anyway, and it's been nice to have the option, but now it's nice to be able to get out. If you have not heard our news already, we are pregnant! We are very excited, and although still cautious given our previous history, things seem to be going much smoother this go round. We are due Jan 24th, which puts us at 14 weeks and a couple of days. This time I started to show super early (8 weeksish) which is not cool when you aren't telling people yet. The last 2-3 weeks, I literally didn't go out if I could avoid it. Last Friday i had a minor procedure done at Mercy OKC to help make sure we don't go into premature labor like last time. I'll spare you the details, but all went well and baby Perkins looks good. Anna Kate says it's a girl baby and we should name her Scooby. We don't really care girl or boy, just healthy. Last time I just knew Kamdyn Grace was a girl, but this time I don't have a feeling one way or another. I'm just glad it's out in the open and we don't have to hide it anymore.

I will say that experiencing two losses, with this pregnancy I've realized I'm not in control of anything. It's all in God's hands, and I really feel like He's telling me "I got this!"
