A Heritage from the Lord
I've got some news I've wanted to share with you for a few weeks: my little sister is pregnant!

pregnancy week by week

Admittedly, she is not as little as I think she is. In my head, she is about 14 and still at school, but is really 23 and a great nurse. (Sometimes I come to review diabetic patients on her ward. It's a bit weird doing a ward round with her, but she really is one of the best nurses I deal with.)

We are only two and a half years apart and, until we both left home, used to fight like cat and dog. I remember the day she was born, but probably only because I was very upset to have lost my little red Porsche when we visited them in the hospital! She still brings up in arguments that I bit her when she was just a few weeks old!

Thankfully, things have changed a lot since then and we have become such good friends. She thinks I am in some sort of religious cult because I don't just leave religion for Sundays, but equally enjoys coming to church with me and meeting all my friends when she visits. I am honoured to have been the first to know she was pregnant two minutes after she had taken the test.

They have only been going out with each other for about six months and living together for the last three months, so there is concern for them all mixed in with all the excitement. If you have just a little time as you visit here, please pray for her, her unborn baby and her boyfriend.

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
the fruit of the womb a reward.

Psalm 127:3

I bit my little sister when she was just a few weeks old too. ;)

Will be praying for you and sister and the one being formed in the Maker's workshop of the womb.

You know what? My little sister, who is a nurse and 2 1/2 years (plus a bit) younger than me is also pregnant! She is due in March though so a bit ahead of your sister. Baby sister having babies.......does that mean we are getting old? !

It is a bit scary that I am old enough for my little sister to be having babies! Thanks for all the congratulations and prayers! (I think I will have to break my no-photos-incase-I-get-a-stalker rule when the baby arrives!)

I will be praying for all of you. It is wonderful to have that special relationship with a sister. I have a little sister too. We are both grandmothers now, but she will always be my little sister.
I pray all will be well for her and her baby and that in and through this she will draw close to the Lord.

Congrats and praying as it comes to mind! Keep us posted on how things are going!

Thank you again for everything. Things were a little touch and go with a lot of bleeding at the start, but have now settled down. She is feeling incredibly nauseated which we are actually very pleased about and are seeing as a good sign!
