This post has been a long time coming. After five years of fertility struggles, I am so thrilled to announce that baby #4 will make his debut in February.
Soon after our third child was born, I felt so strongly that there was a little boy waiting to join our family. A year went by, two years went by, three years went by and there was no baby. And I wanted to second guess that feeling, but deep down I knew I hadn’t made it up and there really was a little one waiting.
I won’t lie. It hurts. Every month that you’re not pregnant, every late period that is just a late period and every baby you snuggle that belongs to someone else… it hurts.
But I don’t let things weigh me down too much and for the most part I’ve just channeled my energy into other things… like this blog.
About 18 months ago we began dabbling in fertility treatments. We started with Chlomid with no success, then did two rounds of IUI. We had a scheduling conflict for the third round of IUI (I was going to be out of town at a conference), but somehow during that month, I got pregnant on my own!
I have no idea why that one month was different than any of the 59 other months, but I can say that God is good and even when I don’t understand His timing, He does have a plan for me.
So what does this mean for the blog? Nothing really… I plan to work just as hard as ever, but you can definitely expect to see some really fun DIY baby projects coming your way over the next few months!
Let’s make aaaaallllllllllll the cute baby things, shall we?!
