For those of you who have been wondering why I haven’t been talking about my fertility treatments…

It’s because

I’m PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!





This is a picture of our baby at 7 weeks 4 days. We got to HEAR and SEE the heartbeat on this day (December 17). Today, I am 9 weeks 1 day. My due date is August 1st. We waited to announce it to everyone because we wanted to at least get to see the heartbeat. We were talking about waiting until the 2nd trimester, but we decided we wanted everyone to know! We are several weeks past the point of our previous miscarriages and are feeling very good about this baby. If you are wondering, this did happen on the cycle where we had "taken a month off". ;) I wasn't on the clomid. We are very excited about that! I know the Lord has chosen this baby for David and I and I am SO grateful to Him and Him alone for the privilege He's given me to try to be a good Mommy. We appreciate your prayers for us up until this point and hope you will continue to pray with us through this journey we are now on. There are many months before we will be able to hold this baby in our arms, but we know it will go by fast and look forward to that time. If you have any questions, please ask. I am an open book about it, so I don't mind!

Thanks, everyone! What a blessing you all are to me!!!!

Angela - I did sleep well, except for getting up TWICE to go to the bathroom and the third time, I was up for the morning. ;) I'm ready for a shower right now! :)

I LOVE the way God works! I figured when you were here last and seemed so lost, it wouldn't be long. God takes our hardest days and makes them bright. (I should know, I have the proof! Brenna's 4 MONTHS OLD NOW!!)

I guess I don't remember seeming lost, but we are very excited. It was the very next cycle after I saw you that we got pg. :)
