Why I Haven’t Been Blogging….

My last blog post was nearly two months ago. I didn’t mean to disappear, but we have something really big going on in our lives right now…



You see, we actually found out that we’re expecting while we were gearing up for IVF. While we were trying, of course, I never would’ve thought we’d actually conceive that cycle. I don’t want to sound cliche and say it happened when we least expected…but it did.

I have been writing posts throughout the first trimester that I plan on sharing, but today I just wanted to share the video of our journey. These past two years have been quite a roller coaster, and this pregnancy is still surreal to me. My heart continues to ache for those that are trying to conceive. Please know that I will keep your struggles in mind while writing as I would never want to intentionally tug at someone’s heart.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

  1. I feel like a creeper, being the first to comment, but I can’t help it. I subscribed via email. : ) I was actually really nervous to read on, after I saw the “something really big going on”… BUT thank God, it was the wonderful news of your pregnancy! I think it’s so awesome – I have so many other words I could use and I’m feeling all of those words, but I’ll spare anyone the grief. ha!
    And even though it sounds clichΓ©, it does seem to happen the way it did for you. It did with me last year. So very happy for you and will keep you in prayers.

    • Thank you! I felt bad not blogging, but I didn’t really know what to say….and as open as I’ve been about our loss and struggle to conceive again, I really wanted to keep this special (and scary!) time between my husband and me. I appreciate your kind words!

  2. Congrats! Wonderful news! And I appreciate your sensitivity toward those of us still in the trenches. Your post is like my dream post of the future–getting pregnant naturally while gearing up for IVF. It’s nice to know that it really DOES happen!

    • Thank you! I wasn’t sure how I was going to go about the blog- whether I was going to announce it and keep writing or not. I know how difficult pregnancy announcements can be…but this little space helped me during my dark moments and this community has meant a lot to me. I’ve been thinking about you and I hope that you’re doing as well as possible. Sending you a hug!! XOXO

  3. Massive amounts of congratulations to you and Tyler! God always has this funny way of making this work. Ironic that your last post prior to this was about faith and religion…just sayin’. πŸ™‚ As someone who watched my own sister struggle for years and then conceived twins through IVF, I know she would have given everything to have conceived naturally. You guys are so blessed, and I’m so excited you decided to share your journey with us! I can’t wait to keep reading.
