Most of you know our journey to get pregnant with Addilyn was not easy. After a few years of infertility, two failed IUI's, and and early miscarriage we got pregnant with our miracle baby after three rounds of IVF. We were told the chances of getting pregnant on our own were super slim. So after Addilyn was born we decided we'd "try" for a baby right away, knowing it was unlikely. I knew I wanted another baby but felt pretty convinced it'd have to happen through fertility treatments or adoption. My heart just didn't feel content pursing either one yet, so we decided that we'd wait until Addilyn turned two to figure out our next step. If we weren't pregnant yet we'd either meet with our fertility doctor or start pursing adoption. And I honestly I felt overwhelmed my both and did by best to not even think about it until Addilyn turned two. Thankfully for the most part I felt peace and contentment with where we were and waited.
Well two weeks before our sweet girl turned two I got a positive pregnancy test while on vacation in Florida. 12 weeks into this pregnancy and I still am shocked that it happened on its own. I know people always say that after you have a baby your body and hormones can change, but I tried to never take comfort or put stake in that as I had a diagnosed problem and the chances were so slim.
I know fully well that God can do anything, and credit Him for every blessing we've been given, especially our two miracles. I am so in awe of God's faithfulness and goodness. We couldn't feel more excited or grateful and can't even wait to meet our sweet baby the beginning of March.
And in case you were wondering Addilyn is super excited. Since the day we found out we were pregnant she's talked about the baby in my belly. Gives my belly kisses, asks if the baby is sleeping and tells the baby she loves him or her. She'll surely be in for a shock come March, but for now it's pure excitement.
