How I surprised my husband about our IVF Pregnancy outcome?

I am posting this out of popular demand. :o)

I have received many nice emails and comments about my IVF process and pregnancy. I always get the following question: "how did you tell your husband you were pregnant?"

I told him we were pregnant on Easter. I purchased plastic Easter eggs and in the Easter eggs I wrote "surprise we are pregnant" on little pieces of paper.

There were many tears of joy and pure relief that we were pregnant and could put the IVF medication and doctors behind us.

Guess what we are having....

I am going the SUYL at Kelly's Korner this week.

It's A Girl

I know it has been a long time since I last posted. I apologize for this. It is part pregnancy brain and part just plain busy. I am busy nesting!



But we found out the gender! It's a GIRL. I am so excited for my little baby girl to arrive. I can't wait to meet her, she is such a blessing in my life.








A male's view on infertility

I really enjoyed reading this article on a man's perspective about a male factor infertility. As you know we had a male factor. It think this article gives a lot of hope.

Heard baby's heart beat for the first time

Yesterday, was a truly amazing day. I heard our baby's heartbeat for the first time. I am so in love with this little baby. It took my breath away and was total music to my ears. I am praying for all of the women trying to conceive. I know how hard it can be waiting and not knowing.

1st trimester testing

I have had a few tests in the last few weeks. I had another blood pressure monitor and had some blood work done. Since my pregnancy is high risk they are doing extra tests on me and the baby.

Happy Memorial Day!

I said a prayer this morning for all of our brave men and women- past, present, and future service members.

Lots of updates...

Since my last post, I have had:



  • 2 more HCG blood tests

  • 2 ultrasounds to see baby and heart beat

  • graduated from IVF to a regular OBGYN

  • having a lot of the 1st trimester symptoms

I am currently in my 8th week of pregnancy. My tummy is round and it is getting harder and harder to hide my tummy. I started to show pretty early on.

I have a maternal fetal specialist appointment coming up in two weeks. I am just so happy and excited about all of the changes that have occurred in my life and my body since finding out that I am pregnant.

More Maternity Clothes Ideas

I am going to use the following websites as ideas for my maternity wardrobe:

I just love the black leggings, high heels, and yellow pattern top look. I am going to mimic this style by purchasing maternity black leggings and a tunic top like this one.

I like this blouse and the shorts with the high heels. This will be great for the summer.
