News and Praise

Baby # 4 is on the way! I'm about 6 1/2 weeks pregnant and due around August 27.

I have been praising God for the ways that his created foods have brought healing to my body, and this pregnancy is one way I've seen his wonderful design.

In my previous three pregnancies, I was on either Unisom (over-the-counter drug) or Zofran (prescription drug) for the entire nine months. If I was even thirty minutes late taking a dose, I would begin to vomit profusely. With my last pregnancy, I was on IV at the hospital for a while due to morning sickness.

After being on an organic whole foods diet (it will be two years in May), I have not yet thrown up this pregnany, even without drugs! This is just unbelievable to me. Now, I'm still sick 24 hours a day but I can tell that my body is healing and responding well to the diet changes, and this baby will benefit from it too! Thank you, God!
