Big News

Brian and I have been keeping a secret for a little while and I think it's time we let the cat out of the bag.  Our big news is that I'm pregnant!  I'm a little over 10 weeks.  My due date is November 18th.  We feel extremely blessed!  I took several tests 3 days apart because I was scared it was a false positive.  -Good old dollar store pregnancy tests. 

Some of the hurdles we had to go through were: 15 months of infertility, 3 months of Clomid, surgery in November, and a HSG in February.   I was diagnosed with endometriosis, cervical stenosis and fribroids.  We were going to try 2 more months of Clomid and then if that didn't work, we were going to start IVF in May. 

Brian started saying in January that he really felt we were going to get pregnant this year and I was feeling a lot of peace and joy in my soul.  We both felt that God was going to do something big in our lives.  I had been praying for God to bless us with a baby without any medical intervention so we would have no doubt where the baby came from and He alone would get all the glory, and amazingly we ended up getting pregnant without any medical intervention.

I can't even begin to say, "Thank You" enough for everyone that has prayed for us.  I'm thankful that our God hears our prayers and still does miracles. 

Thankfully the sonographers at my office spoil me and give me an ultrasound about every other day.  It's been amazing watching the pregnancy grow from a yolk sac to a baby with a heartbeat and arms and legs.  This is the backside of him, so you can't see his legs in this picture.  His head is on the left.  (I've been calling the baby a boy--I don't know, just a hunch)

Ephesians 3:20  "God is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine."
