IT IS ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE!!!

God and Gabi knew what we needed in our lives! I have spoke to many of you, but I have not made the official announcement here. We have been blessed yet again, we are pregnant. We have known for 2 weeks, but wanted to wait to make the big announcement until I got the official word from the doctor. Well there is no need to wait, all the sign are there, not to mention the 3 positive pregnancy tests! My doctor appointment isn't until October 8th, I just couldn't wait any longer. I am guessing I am around 5 weeks, that is why the doctor wants me to wait to visit, they want me 8 weeks before I see them.

I cannot tell you how excited we are. With all the excitement there is much fear as well. I have told everyone that knows I do not fear down syndrome, I fear the heart defect. Although it is not genetically related I am still scared to death. Jason and I had been talking about getting pregnant, when would be a good time to start trying and like many other situations in our lives we did not have to make that choice, it was made for us! It's not like we were trying, but we were not trying to prevent it either!

We really don't care if it is a boy or girl, all we care about is the baby's health. I will tell you though life sure would be easy if it was a girl, we have so much stuff that has never been used. We already have a few names picked out, but I am sure those will change throughout the next 9 months. So please keep baby Acker in your prayers...thank you!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I am sooo happy for you two. We will be praying for Baby Acker too! Please take care of yourself and don't do too much Micah! My advice: is to do nothing and enoy it, let Jason do ALL the cooking, cleaning and backrubs for you! LOL
Take care guys!!

I noticed the ????? on a comment on Bella's blog, so I wondered!! Congratulations, and know that I am praying for you all. Your fears are understandable!!! God is a big God and knows exactly what we can handle. Trust Him!! Will be keeping up with you all from now on. I sort of feel a connection, even though we don't know each other. Will be praying as you all come to mind.

Yeah...I get to be a mimi again...I don't care boy or girl. You were blessed with angel Gabi and with one very special Gracie, so whoever he or she is will be sooooo loved. This new little one is going to have one "huge" family so babysitters should never be a problem...but remember Mimi & Meemaw get first chance!! I love you both so much and am so happy for you. Through all the pain which will never go away there can be some joy in your lives.
Love, Micah's mommy aka Mimi
