It's a.....


I came home yesterday after working the most intense half day of my life to balloons, beautiful flowers and L. walking around the corner saying words I've longed to hear for 2 1/2 years:

"Congratulations, Babe, you're pregnant!"

The magic number: HCG=857

I am over the moon, thrilled beyond belief and scared to death, all at the same time.

But, mostly, I'm over the moon.

By the way, hearing that your pregnant from your beloved spouse: Priceless.

It's a memory a pee stick just can't possibly grant.

To all of you who have supported us, prayed for us and cheered us on, thank you. This cycle was truly a miracle, and I am completely convinced of the power of prayer and love.

You are all amazing.

I am sooooo excited about your BFP!!!! You are going to be an amazing mommy. YOU ALREADY ARE! I can't wait to go shopping for shoes for your little miracle!!! I know how you love some sassy shoes. Looking forward to reading "the rest of the story" and trusting that you will keep us all informed of the new journey you are embarking on. Welcome to Parenthood. It's the most awesome, amazing ride. I am so glad I've gotten to share your journey. And I'll be praying that you are able to enjoy the ride until you hold your new little one in your arms. Brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it! Love you all so much!! And CONGRATULATIONS again! What a "go God" moment!

BTW...I highly recommend you do a "pee stick" anyway. Then take a picture. It makes for a super cute scrapbook layout!! :-)

I am soooooooooooo happy for you!!! (I am actually crying :-)) I know that this has been an oft times difficult journey (and it's not over yet), but it is soooooo going to be worth while. I cannot wait to hear more about it. What a special moment to be able to have your spouse be the one to tell you that you are going to have his child. AWESOME!!!! I'll still be thinking of you and praying daily.
