About our announcement!

I really wanted to keep a secret until week 12--however for those of you that have done IVF (if your like me) you know about all the bloating that comes alot with the shots...although I am not actually showing alot right now, I do appear that I am.

So hiding this news and staying hibernated for another 4 weeks would have been extremely hard.

So we made the decision to keep it to ourselves until we heard the heartbeat...once we heard that glorious sound we knew it would be ok to tell our family.


My first announcement was to my husband of course...he knew I was going in for blood work that morning...so keeping it a secret all day until he got home wouldn't have been easy; so I called him and we just cried happy tears together...when he got home I have a cute little bib and a card waiting for him! 


We waited till Mothers Day weekend to tell our family. Well since his family is out of state we called them first--we made sure we were on speaker phone and then I texted the below picture to them...all we could hear was 'OH MY GOSH ARE THOSE BABY BOOTS'...followed by many screams! ha :)

We told my grandparents in the middle of the week; my Grandmother was so beyond ecstatic and my sweet Papa cried!

My MaPerk and momma were next....momma screamed and cried happy tears...it was so amazing to see her so happy....my Perk instantly said  'these boots are made for walking' however it took her a minute to realize...she soon let our a loud gasppp.... :)

My dad, brother and step mom were next! As she unwrapped the picture frame and saw the baby boots she started screaming like I've never seen before...from screams to tears it was apparent that we made several people happy this week by our family growing by two feet...


God answers prayers...I always had visions of being able to announce this, and although I never gave up it's still crazy to believe this is really happening...

I am so so happy for you!! It is so hard to comprehend when it's actually finally YOU that it's happening to and getting to share the great news when you've been through so much trying to get there, but it's real! We too had to go through two IVF's to get our little miracles. The Lord does hear and answer our prayers!!
