You are NOT going to believe this!


(Kate this picture was taken just for you!!  Sorry I didn't have any granite for a background!)




I know the picture isn't great but yep... that's right!  We're pregnant!  It is really early, I shouldn't be spreading the news just yet cause there is still a chance I might have to take it back.  It's actually really stupid of me to be telling anyone just yet, I hope I don't jinx myself but I just can't hold it in any longer!  Today we were able to see our little bean's heartbeat and it was AMAZING!! 
Just a quick recap of how this happened... well let's just say it was a COMPLETE surprise!  I wasn't taking anything, I wasn't tracking anything, and I definitely wasn't expecting anything like this.  I feel so blessed.  I have just become one of those woman that I have always envied and I am loving every minute!  We are around 6 weeks along, which puts us due around the first of May. Dr. S says I am not out of the woods yet, which I totally get, am I ever really out of the woods? We are going back in next week for another ultrasound to check on little bean.  I hope that it's okay if I ask anyone who reads this to pray for our little bean, that it will continue to grow into a healthy baby.  We would appreciate any help we can get!  Thank you!

I have been following you since you were pregant with Avery (my daughter has achondroplasia), and I just went onto your blog and thought in my head - I know she said she wasn't going to really post much anymore, but one of these days she's going post "I'm Pregnant!" I'm so very happy I was right :) Best of luck to you guys and congratulations!

Miracles really do happen!!! Words can not express how happy I am for you and Skeet. You are going to make wonderful parents. I know Avery is smiling down on her Mommy & Daddy.

I'm so glad you decided to announce it on your blog so everyone can share in your excitement. I've been waiting patiently so I could be the first to comment.

You, Skeet and this little bean will be in my prayers for the next 9 months. I'm thinking nothing but positive thoughts. It's YOUR TURN to be the one who gets to bring the baby home from the hospital.

With Love,
Lisa

Hi, you don't know me... I saw your blog title on Natalie Call's blog and checked your blog out. Your blog is on her angel friends list and I too have a little angel of my own. I always read other people's blogs as part of research, to see someone else that can relate, and to also be uplifted.

Our Bridger was stillborn last May due to a kink in his cord. I couldn't believe it. It was (and is) a real life nightmare.

ANYWAY, I just found out last weekend that I am pregnant too! I am due May 11th. I am so excited but SO nervous. As I am sure you are. I pray that our little ones get to stay with us this time. I just wanted to tell you congrats because I can somewhat relate to you and I just wish you the best. :)

I was reading FB and saw that you said that you were having a baby in May...WOW!!! COOKIE!! I'm so excited for you and Skeet!!!

After Bunco, my mom was asking about you, she couldn't believe how striking you were and then wanted to know a little more about you. So, I took her onto your blog and read Avery's story. I read it out loud for her through tears and a huge yo-yo in my throat. We sat and cried for your loss. Now, we will have tears of joy for you and Skeet! Oh, I'm so HAPPY for you two!!

You both are in my prayers and fingers and toes are crossed!

Take care and we'll be thinking and praying for your little bean!

Love, Julie

Jade said...

Kenzie said...

Ok so Kody told me the other night that he had heard you were pregnant. I started to cry! I am so so so so happy for you. I prayed that night for you and every night since. I have prayed for you so many times. Even my son heard me praying for you once and asked who you were. Then tonight I saw you at Milts and I was too scared to say anything because I didn't know if you were telling people and I thought I might cry again so I just said "HI" and then walked away. When Kody sat down he said that he told you congratulations and I was so mad. I told him that until you were ready to tell people he shouldn't say anything to you. Then I got home and read your blog and now I am the jerk becaue I didn't even tell you how obsessed I have been with you, because I want you to have a baby so bad. I hope you don't get a restraining order because it isn't a dangerous obsessed, it is just a-I want you to have a baby so bad-obsessed. When you said you were taking a break from blogging I totally understood. Although I have never been through what you have, I understand the frustration of everyone else having kids when you can't, feeling. And I understood not wanting to have everyone elses happiness slapped in your face all the time. ANYWAY, I'm sorry I didn't say congrats at Milt's. I want you to know I am so happy for you. You are in my prayers always.

Jenny said...

I was so excited to hear your good news! I will be keeping you in my prayers.
