Time for a new addition!

Looks like our little family is going to be growing by one! Yes, I'm pregnant! Sean and I are both BEYOND excited and can't believe we are going to be parents. It's something we've both wanted for a long time and we can't wait for the new addition. I am currently about 14 weeks along (just starting my second trimester). 

Many of you know we enlisted the help of fertility doctors to aid us in our journey to parenthood. We had a lot of people praying for us and we are so grateful! We tried in vitro for the fourth time at the end of April, and lucky for us, the fourth time was a charm! Both Sean and I were shocked when we found out it actually worked. In fact, I was convinced it hadn't because I had no symptoms. The morning I was supposed to take a pregnancy test, I woke up early and planned to just take the test and go back to bed. I didn't want to make a big deal of it so I didn't bother to wake Sean. Well, my cute husband figured out what I was doing and got up and waited outside the door. When he heard me scream he burst through the door and we both just started screaming. We've been celebrating ever since.

Lucky for me, I haven't been sick at all. I guess I thought I was going to be living life with my head over the toilet. Other than a few food aversions and the need for a nap every now and then, I feel pretty much normal! 

All I can say is modern medicine is an absolute blessing. We are so excited to finally be sharing the good news. We'll be sure to keep you updated as I expand!

I've been thinking about you both for a while and was going to ask how things were going, but didn't really know how to approach the subject. And 14 weeks is so awesome, you're only like 7 weeks behind me!!!! Congratulations a million times. :) Love you both!

Jenny and Sean....this is soooooooo exciting! That is so awesome that you haven't been sick. I was also not sick with Brent, and it makes life so much easier that way. I bet you can't stop thinking about the tiny thing growing inside you. When is the due date? I'm to lazy to do the math. Take care, and good luck with the rest of pregnancy.
