wanna know sumptin?

Ive got a little secret !
but I let the cat out of the bag to my mother and to my mother in law today..
there are a few others I need to tell..
but now I feel like telling my sweet and precious blogland friends!

I'm gonna be a grandma.......


what ever will I do with a grandbaby??????????????
eiy yie yie!

now.. dont get me wrong..
On one hand I'm thrilled at the thought.
on the other... Im terrified.

I've always told me kids not to have any babies,
because I dont want to worry about anyone else in my life.
I already have too many worries!

but, I always knew that one day...
one of my children would bless me with grandchildren.




so, Bethany would be the one blessing me now.
She and her boyfriend are very excited and will make wonderful parents.
However, Bethany is a diabetic and considered a high risk pregnancy.,
so if you wouldnt mind sending up some prayers for a uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery!
And.. of course.. for an absolutely perfectly healthy and beautiful baby..

Oh, and while we're asking for favors from above?? I think id like a girl.
yes, If I must play this game.. a girl would be my choice!
A boy would be perfectly wonderful as well...
but, girls like dolls, and pink and crafts and cute clothes.. and pink.. did I say pink?

Ive know for a couple weeks.. but didnt want to post on the internet until I had told some family members first.
yes, this one of the things that had been causing me stress and was putting me over the edge.
not that I wasnt happy,
just in shock (We didnt think Bethany would be able to get pregnant so easy. At least thats what her doctor told us a few years ago.) She has polycycstic ovary syndrome.
babys are blessings..
and now that I've had time to wrap my head around it..
I'm thinking..

OH MY GOD! I'm going to be a grandmother!!!
eiy yie yie!!!

That is wonderful news, Viv, and yes, a girl! Girls are so much fun...I am still having fun doing crafts with mine. I am so lucky!

I know that Bethany is high risk with diabetes and I am so glad she got pregnant with the PCOS. I had endometriosis and gestational diabetes...not the same but I was hospitalized for a month and a half and had a hard time. That kind of puts you in the club of hearing about everyone's difficulty and I know of them both from friends.

I will say prayers for her...

I can imagine the concern for Bethany's health. Medicine has come a long way, though. Praying for her to have an uncomplicated pregnancy culminating in a beautiful baby.

I am so jealous!

Don't worry, GRANDma! Be happy.

Congratulations and a big hug from me to you.
Being a grandmother is great.
Hugs and a very nice weekend.
You asked me about the dog, it's a Labradoodle.

Kai said...

Viv, when my daughter came to me a age - gasp - FIFTEEN (I was 37) to tell me she was preggers, I just had to take a sec & breathe. So I UNDERSTAND why you were feeling frazzled. I'm glad tho' that you are okay with it now! Of course, I will keep Bethany in my prayers. And I will also keep my fingers crossed that you have a granddaughter! Grandsons are AWESOME but granddaughters are lots more fun to make pretty stuff for! LOL!
