I'm Going to Let You in on a Little Secret

My dear blog readers,
Those of you who know me well know that I do not keep secrets. It's actually physically impossible for me to keep a secret. So, it's going to really surprise many of you to find out that I've been staying silent about something pretty big.

So, without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to the little miracle that came into our lives 13 weeks ago:

We wanted to keep it to ourselves for a while to make sure things went okay this time. It's been a very terrifying 13 weeks and we are just now starting to feel that things could actually go well. We feel incredibly blessed to be pregnant with this baby and we are so grateful for every minute.

To my friends who are still battling infertility,
I'm not even sure where to start. You've been there with me through it all. You've held my hand and given me a shoulder to cry on when times are tough. You always know the right things to say because you've been there before. And you pray and hope for things to turn out well. And I can't say thank you enough. On the flip side, I've followed blogs where the writer ends up pregnant and although I'd feel happy for them, I knew I was at a point where I couldn't read any further. So, if you feel that it would be easier on you to stop following me now, I understand completely. Just know that I appreciate everything you have given me and I continue to pray for you all. It's a hard road and we will always be connected for having went through it together.

I've got lots of catching up to do with you all now that you know, so keep posted. I'll be posting pretty much daily for a little while to get you caught up with what's been going on for the past 13 weeks. And then we've got 27 more weeks of pregnancy to talk about... (buckle your seatbelts...)
