Thanks ladies! Ya’ll are all so sweet!
@missfroggy: Awww that is sooo sweet! My tracker says The end of March!
@Vitsippa: Thanks we actually just started.
@bebefly: Thanks for clarifying those… I was sleeping. lol
Thanks again ladies! =)
Congratulations! Best wishes for a happy and healthy pregnancy.
Congrats! I am truly excited for you!
Yay! Congrats! Super exciting!
Congratulations, what happy news.
That nice little morcel of wisdom that God gave you is probably really offensive to some women on this board though. Just going to throw that out there. Something to think about, or whatever.
CONGRATS! thats so so exciting! How did you tell your hubby?
i know that your intentions with your bible verse were well intentioned and im sure you didnt mean anything by it, as you seem like such a sweet girl so please dont take this the wrong way.. but i just have to point out that it could be really offensive to some people. to me it comes off to suggest that anyoe who is having trouble concieving/ had a misscarriage is anyway bc they did not fully serve the lord is ludacris. as these things cannot be helped and is no way anyones fault. I would just hate to see one of the bees come here who is having fertility troubles to come congratulate you on your post and instead read that bible verse- i know that if that was me it would really offend and hurt my feelings alot. dont wnat to cause any hurt feelings but just felt that it was necessary point to bring up.
you should come to join the spring baby board post; alot of us are due in March!
I like your verse… It should not offend anyone. You did not personally write the verse it is just something that helped you! You were in no way suggesting anything by it! I love that you put your fith in God and you are now expecting a wonderful little baby!
Thanks so much ladies!!!
I am aware that there are many people that find God’s word offensive. And I have infact shared this scripture with others who are having trouble trying to conceive and have also have had miscarriages. They have found it to be very encouraging and given them hope.
The scripture is a promise and just like when we “cash in” the promises of the bank note we hold an account at or someone we have a relationship with telling us they’ll do something for us, we can stand on this promise and claim for our own lives that as we follow God no such thing as these will have to touch our lives.
I hate to put a damper on such a happy thread (congratulations again!) but the fact that you don’t see what you’ve written here as offensive in the least is truly mind boggling. I’m not TTC and even I feel like this crossed the line based on what I know about some of my fellow bees. Do you read the baby boards? Do you comprehend the stories some women in the hive are living? Because the implication that women who have miscarriages are somehow less worthy of a healthy pregnancy because they aren’t as close with God as you are is absolutely heinous. As fully functioning adults we should be able to contemplate what is appropriate to say and what is downright hurtful and subsequently censor ourselves. Religious as you might be, it shouldn’t be stretch for you to understand that for a lot of people the bible does not equal fact. Not to mention, considering what a warm and supportive place the Bee is I’m surprised more posters aren’t disappointed with the lack of tact excercised in your post.
If God is as good and kind as he is made out to be, especially based on what sounds like a bit of a rough start for you in your late teens, then I have a feeling he wouldn’t be so happy about any of us running around spewing biblical verses that somehow put one person up on a judgement-proof pedestal while driving an emotional dagger through the hearts of women going through scientifically proven fertility issues. But then, God and I aren’t very good friends – so maybe you’re right and I’m just cluelessly speeding towards some sort of looming miscarriage when I do start TTC. Something to think about, or pray on, or what have you.
Seriously though, best of luck with your pregnancy. Hoping it’s happy and healthy for everyone involved!
@Miss Lilac: I personally think God would love that his word is being shared. Gods words are meant to be shared. There are some harsh verses and some that aren’t. The verse does not imply that those that are having trouble conceiving arent close to God or good Christians… it is his promise that if you are close to him and have a relationship he will grant you those things…. it doesn’t say that he will do it WHEN you want it or HOW you want it… its his promise and it will come in his time in accordance to his plan for you.
Dont judge others for their faith the same as they arent judging you for yours…..
This is a happy thread and this was her explination of her faith and what she experienced and I think its awesome!
@runsyellowlites: Congratulations!!!! That is so awesome! I’m sorry there are so many bees that think that when you post something as wonderful as a pregnancy announcement, they can still pull certain words or comments out of it and make your fabulous news something they’d like to take stand on:( The point of the message is to announce that you are having a baby, and I am SO excited for you! I wish people would learn to not make everything about THEM and what THEY think! You offered a scripture which helped you through ttc, in hopes it may help others. For the Bees that the scripture will not help ttc – Be Happy for OP and move on to the next post, because obviously this one doesn’t apply to you so no need to get on your high horse! That drives me INSANE about these boards when people take things out of context and hijack a wonderful post…We’re supposed to support each other, especially in matters as sensitive and emotional as TTC….Congratulations Amnystik!!!!
Oh I just saw this post, Congratulations I am sooo excited and happy for you! All the best for a healthy baby!
