Our Little Miracle...

Baby Orrrrrrtega

November 3rd! (Possibly November 9th if they change my due date)

Perhaps we can have the baby on 11/11/11. I'd be okay with that! :)


Why a miracle? I know that conception itself is a miracle, but for us, it REALLY is a miracle. Almost 4 years ago, Sean and I decided that I would throw out the pill and we would give this whole "baby" thing a try. After the first year of no pregnancy I blamed not getting pregnant on the birth control pill. It totally screwed me up for the whole year. After the second year I thought that there might be something wrong, but I was only 23 and wasn't going to stress out. After the third year I realized that there was probably something wrong and went to the doctor. After several months of testing (and lots of money spent) at the fertility specialist we were told (last December) that the only way we would be able to have children is through in vitro. That was probably the hardest thing for me accept because it it so expensive and not a 100% sure thing. After deciding that it probably would be a long time until we have a baby, I gave up trying...and that's when it all happened.

{We are so blessed and couldn't be happier}

I was just thinking about you guys the other day! So happy to hear the good news!! It seems like it works that way so often. Right when you give up, or adopt a baby or something you get pregnant! It's like we need to go throught the struggle before we get the blessings. Couldn't be happier for you both! Keep us updated on all the details!!

Oh my gosh I'm so excited for you guys!!!! Congrats! That had to be so frustrating- I can't even imagine. I'm glad it all worked out and hope you are feeling ok! And why do we live 1/2 a mile from each other and never do anything?! That's crazy and we need to do something about that.
