A Post with the News from Melanie

It has been fun to see the excitement resulting from a simple caption below Bethany’s picture in the last post. 🙂

Yes, we are expecting again! We are excited and a little apprehensive all at the same time. Many of you have traveled the journeys of our pregnancies with us and understand the challenges we have gone through.

I am 9 weeks along now. As with my other pregnancies, I have been on progesterone since we found out I was pregnant.

It is fun to watch Abigail be so excited about the new baby. She has had the “job” of telling our news. She loves sharing that “Momma’s going to have a new baby!” She has also changed her doll’s name to “New Baby” and carries her around most of the day. She tells me that she is carrying the new baby so that I can carry Bethany. 🙂 And Bethany doesn’t really understand what is going on, but she shares in Abby’s enthusiasm. So when Abby tells the news, Bethany will often add a happy exclamation.

This is baby #6 for us (three with the Lord). It is an incredible privilege to get to carry another child. We pray that we will have the joy of raising this little one.

Thank you for standing with us in prayer!


“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.” (Psalms 139:13)

  5. Praying with you during this pregnancy. May you find Him to be sufficient. What exciting news! I read and reread the caption…I didn’t believe my eyes! Congratulations!

  6. Congratulations! Praise the Lord for this new life. And how very exciting for Anna Marie and Melanie to be pregnant together. God Bless, and I will be praying for a safe and healthy full term pregnancy.

  7. So exciting! I’m praying for both Maxwell moms-to-be.

    Also, I love the family photo! Abby and Bethany definitely inherited their dad’s bright blue eyes.

  8. Ah, I’m so happy for you. Praying all will go well and that you’ll deliver a healthy baby!! Congratulations!!


  9. Congratulations and God bless you all. Thank you for the tender reminder that you have babies “with the Lord.” My mother lost her first pregnancy and it is only now that I have my own children that I understand a bit of her loss. She still talks sometimes about the son (she believes it was a boy) that is in heaven and that God gave them 4 children total. I often wonder what it will be like to meet him in heaven and finally meet my other big brother.

    Praying for a healthy pregnancy for you Melanie.

  10. That is wonderful news! Many congrats to the family! I am also expecting my 6th child, about 6-7 weeks along and having a weird pregnancy. I don’t know if this baby will make it, but I do know I feel sick so I’ll take that as a good sign… Will be praying for you, Melanie!
