27 Our Journey: Part 8

After over a year of walking through the journey of infertility ‘quietly,’ Nate and I feel led to share our story in hopes of providing connection, fellowship, advice, and prayer for others traveling on such a heartbreaking road. 
{start at the beginning here}

Part 8
 Waiting. . .
Again a supernatural peace but still so hard to wait.
After going through so many procedures and hoping I was pregnant, I wouldn’t even let myself get my hopes up.
I just kept telling myself, if this doesn’t work, we will just do it again. It is ok.
Don’t worry. Just pray.

Finally, the two weeks were up.
I went to the doctor, had the blood work done and then waited a couple of hours. 
My nurse called,
“Honey, you are pregnant!!!”
Oh the joy
The overwhelming joy.

When Nate came home I had a little onesie, a card, and a baby Bible waiting for him.
We were thrilled.
We went and told my parents.
Tears, hugs, JOY.
The next day we told my brothers and sister in laws.
They had been praying fervently for us and answered prayer is so so sweet!

Two weeks later, we went in for our first ultrasound . .  . and heard and saw the sweetest sound in the world.

God’s hand was all over our journey. In the darkest times, it was apparent that he was there. 
Our pregnancy is a miracle. Our baby is a miracle.
God is so good! 
God has heaped blessings on us since finding out that we are pregnant!
The main one being that I am pregnant and due within days of some of my very best friends.
And that I am delivering at the same hospital as two of my sweet friends who are due within days of me!
From when we are due to the excitement people have had over this pregnancy, God has blessed us.

HE is so faithful. God is so good.
We are so thankful.
Pin It!
