Um... so... yeah.

My wife has been under the weather for the past little while and today while we were out shopping she got a pregnancy test. It came back positive. To be safe I got a different test... It also came back positive. So there you have it.

Of course we are going to wait until she can go to a doctor to let us know any more before we start making bigger plans. Some of the things we need to plan for are a bigger living area (possibly house), finances, and if any new children are going to have the same medical problems as my daughter. Also, we are trying to keep this as quiet as possible until we know further, but i'm posting this here for prayer support.

Please keep my family in your prayers during this time, especially as my wife has been told that it would be very hard for her to get pregnant again.

Pregnancy is one of the most joyfully terrifying experiences. Congratulations!

dcommini: Mahbruk, my brother!  Prayers for a successful pregnancy are appropriate.  A quick Google for Orthodox patron saints of pregnancy yielded several choices, but the best seemed to be a thread in monachos.net: [url]http://www.monachos.net/forum/showthread.php?6075-To-which-saint-do-I-pray-for-fertility/url]
There are a kontakion and apolitikion in the thread, along with a link to a great story of St. Irene Chrysovalantou at a linked page in Orthodoxwiki.  May you and your wife be blessed with a successful pregnancy, an easy birth and a healthy baby.
 Edit: sorry, that link thingy will not work for me!
