If you know the hubs or I personally then you have known this little (read as big) secret for a little while now. I have gone back and forth on whether to share it here, but decided why not! The hubs and I are excited to announce Baby G is arriving this August! We are so excited! I will do a recap of the first trimester soon.
The journey here took longer than expected, but honestly looking back I understand now it was all in God’s timing. Both the hubs and I needed to be in places (career wise) where we were both happy. With both of us changing jobs last year and becoming happier in our new roles it only makes sense He would place this little blessing in our life.
I want to take a moment to say to anyone who struggles with infertility I feel for you because it’s devastating to go month after month without a positive pregnancy test. For those women who have experienced loss, I cannot imagine the emotions you go through!
For everyone who asks childless couples when they’re going to have a baby, please stop. It only deepens the anxiety and hurt. You don’t know what is going on behind closed doors. I’ll leave it at that, but have much much more to say on the subject.
How We Found Out
We found out mid-December. I had been feeling “off” but the thought of being pregnant didn’t cross my mind immediately. We had gone so many months that I tried not to jump to that conclusion. After being late for several days I decided it was time to take a test. I went to CVS after work and waited until the next morning to test. Within seconds the little screen said “pregnant.” I was shocked and thrilled and all I wanted to do was tell the hubs. Because of his shift schedule I only see him at lunchtime during the week. The morning I found out was a Wednesday and I had several work events that week that prevented me from going home for lunch. I quickly realized I wouldn’t see him until Saturday! It’s definitely something I wanted to share face to face so with this little secret of mine I went on about my days (maybe with a little extra spring in my step and goofy grin on my face).
Saturday morning the hubs woke up and I let him be fully awake before sharing the news in the form of a card. He was as shocked as I had been. We’ve been over the moon ever since!
I’ll leave this post here because this is the important stuff until I cover the first trimester.
Until next post…xoxo Becca
