    I took a home test this week and learned that at the age of 44 I've conceived a baby ...... natuarally! I was shocked but so grateful to God and extremely excited. I tried to conceive before but with no success. I finally determined that I would thank God for my current Blessings and live to be the best mother that I could be to the children I already have. I had bariatric surgery to get weight off and have lost 100 pounds so far. I started to focus on getting healthy for longevity! Well God had a different plan for me!

    I'm Pregnant!

    I dont mind that I've lost weight, I'm eating healtheir and really wanna do everything right for a healthy pregnancy. My first Dr's appt is tomorrow. I am so looking forward to this journey!

    I FEEL SO BLESSED!!!!! Thank you Jesus for your continued Grace, Mercy and Divine Favour!!!!

    I hope my experience can encourange someone else to look forward to conceive past 40.
