I'M FINALLY PREGNANT!!!


Meet our lil' pumpkin. Due to arrive 10-23-10

We have been trying to start a family for 8 years. The past 2 years we've done 6 fertility treatments that all failed. Our last one was on December 30, 2009. It also failed. We were devastated. We told the dr. it was our last try, it was just too emotionally draining. Imagine our surprise when I got a positive pregnancy test on February 20, 2010!! I saw the 2 pink lines, but still didn't believe it. I ended up taking 8 tests altogether and they were all instantly positive :) I told my hubby the next day. We are beyond thrilled!!

I am 14 weeks today. For the most part, I feel great. I never had morning sickness, thank goodness! Our last ultrasound (above) was taken on April 6th. We got to hear the hearbeat for the first time - what a wonderful sound ♥ The baby was moving all around and the dr. had a hard time getting a good picture. The head is on the right looking down with the hand under the chin. It's amazing how much it's grown since last month!

It still doesn't seem real and I cry happy tears all the time, especially when my hubby talks to my belly. I'm just so thankful we're finally blessed with a little one of our own.
