And Then There Were Three

   After three and a half years of praying, crying, and many months of fertility treatments I am thrilled to announce that Blake and I are expecting a baby girl in October!

   On January 25, 2014 I took a pregnancy test and this was what I saw:


  So, for the past four months I have been keeping this huge secret. I feel relieved now that my coworkers and students know why I've been feeling so bad. I have felt some relief now that we are safely in the second trimester, (17 weeks) but I am not afraid to admit that my bed and bumpnest pillow are my best friends.

  Thank you to those who have prayed over us, sent me personal emails of encouragement, and to my family members who kept our secret from the world, even when all we wanted to do was rejoice in His blessing.

  We have chosen the name Hogan (my maiden name) Virginia (my mother's name) for our daughter. I look forward to documenting my pregnancy thru the blog.

  4. Awe, congrats! Such good news! So was this an IVF from TFC then? So happy it worked out there after all if so! Well, happy it worked out no matter what of course! Yay!!!

  5. Oh, Sweetheart! I am indescribably thrilled for you! I babysat for you for several years back in Dallas and enjoy so much following your blog. I'll always feel you're forever my baby girl. So, so happy for you, Honey. Please keep us posted on your progress; just love reading all about you.
