Morning Sickness =

PREGNANCY!!!!! I am about 10 weeks pregnant. This will be #3 for us. The bundle will arrive the beginning of May.

We are excited and a little overwhelmed. Ellis will be only 18 months when the new one arrives. I will have my hands full. We are so thankful to God that He has entrusted us with a new little life.

Here are some FAQ’s:

Was this planned? Kind of. We did not expect it to happen so quickly.
Where will you have the baby? The baby will be born in Belize via c-section. Just like Ellis.
Do you feel safe having a baby in Belize? Yes, very safe. I have a great doctor.
How are you feeling? Sick as a dog.

We ask that you keep us in your prayers during this time of change and transition. Pray for the health of mommy and baby, and pray for the two little girls who will be big sisters.

    Very excited for you and John!!! I will be praying for your sickness, I can totally relate!!


    Congratulations. That will make a nice closeknit family. We’re all wondering if John and Melissa will have a son or will it be Three Sisters. We once knew of a Three Sisters Restaurant in Culver, IN. We enjoyed having our three girls grow up together. Having had good experience with Ellis and confidence in the doctor eliminates a lot of anxiety. Looking forward to seeing the new additions to our extended family and praying for good health, absence of sickness. Great Grand parents: Glen and Geneva Nelson.

    Congrats, Mel (and John, Evangeline & Ellis too)! I can totally relate to the morning sickness AND FAQ #1. We sort of wanted our kids to be around two years apart, but didn’t think it would happen very easily after last time. 🙂 Ours will be 21 months apart! Doesn’t God just have a sense of humor? 🙂 Love you!

    Congratulations! How exciting! We have 3 girls & even though we wanted a boy, we wouldn’t trade our 3 daughters.
    Hope your sickness won’t last long. I was never sick, but it would be very hard, especially with 2 others to care for.
    Praying all goes well for you.

    Congrats on your precious new little one to come. Praying for all of you.

    Wow, another gift from GOD. I am happy for you and pray the morning sickness leaves sooner than expected.

    I am expecting a new G’daughter around 11/11/11. Also expecting a new Great G’child next year…not sure of the date yet and maybe twins. My G’daughter, Stellamarie, will be younger than my current youngest Great G’daughter and then come one or two Greats. Oh, my so many blessings.

    I am praying my health will return and that I will be able to go on a mission trip someday. I go to Horizons Community Church in Peoria AZ and I facilitate a Bible Study group of women on saturday mornings. I do what I can where I am.
    I am so blessed that GOD has allowed me to help HIM in what HE is doing at our apartment complex and at Horizons.

    You will need to add another swing to the two you have. LOL

    I continue to pray for you and your loved ones, for your ministry and fruit. May you be encouraged today and receive a special hug from GOD.

    Prayers and hugs, Louise
