Telling the world...ie: Facebook

So, after our appointment on Thursday we were feeling so elated and excited. We knew right away that we were going to tell the rest of our family and some really good friends after the appointment.
 And we did.
 And it was amazing.
 :)

 But then came the whole, "when do we tell the rest of the world?" And by that we of course mean, FB! 

When I first thought about it, I was unsure if it was a "good idea" to tell the world so soon. Yes, we are a little over 8 weeks, blood work looks good, and we saw our little one and their heart beating away.

 But was it too soon?

 What if, God forbid, something happen?

 But then it hit me like a ton of bricks.... I want to CELEBRATE. I want to CHERISH every.single.moment of this pregnancy.

 This could be our only pregnancy and I would hate to look back and see that we didn't enjoy every moment.

 So, I told the world! ;)
(Facebook)

 I shouted it from the rooftops!!
(My status)

 And people sung songs of joy for us!!
(Commented on our status)

 And I am SOO happy I did because...
This is a miracle.
This is a gift from God.
This is something to CELEBRATE and CHERISH and ENJOY.

 God is SO good.
