Hello Laura, I feel somewhat strange reading about someone's personal blog that I've never met. I don't usually do this kind of thing, but your story and passion drew me in and I felt so compelled to comment. I myself am 7 weeks pregnant! It was your 7 week blog picture that came up in my search. We are spreding the good news to our family this evening so it's been a bit of a struggle to contain my excitment! I guess I have the little fear about 'jinxing' the pregnancy. I think I feel a bit different about that now after reading your position on "celebrating the life" :) thank you! Unlike your experience, my husband and I got pregnant the firest month. To be honest this whole experience has still not hit me yet, but after reading your blog (in tears), I feel very blessed to be a "mom". I just wanted to thank you for sharing your journey, emotions, and passion, it has helped me feel truely thankful for this gift, as it still continues to feel real. Lindsay (Ottawa, Canada)
Thank you :) that means a lot to me. Congrats by the way!! What a blessing! I know your so excited to start this new adventure with your husband. It has been quite a roller-coaster for us. Some days we can't believe we are having a baby and other days we are just blown away and want to go and buy him everything!! Enjoy this time being pregnant, it does fly by :) Now it is hitting me that I will be giving birth before I know it an feel like it is going to creep up on me, but I can't wait!! God Bless you and your family and congratulations again on this gift from God :)
Thank you for the encouragement you have given me reading your blog. We have been trying for 5 years for a baby now, and are on our 3rd ivf attempt. My husband was in a car accident 7 years ago and is now paralysed - we actually met in hospital! So the only way we can conceive is with ivf. Miraculously we were given 2 attempts on the nhs, but we've had to pay for this one - which is a step of faith in itself.Had embryo transfer last week, and we now have 2 more days until we test to see if our little embryo has made a little home and stayed in there. I know whichever way it goes, God will be with us, although I pray so hard that its finally our time to be parents.Your blog has encouraged me so much, I thank God that you have been blessed with a child, and pray that we follow quite soon.Lynn
I am so glad and blessed that this blog has been an encouragement to you. I know how stressful this can be... I'm praying for you and that the Lord will give you peace through this process. Just know that all things are in His timing.. not ours. It's so hard to trust that and keep moving forward and having faith through the tough times. It breaks my heart that you have been though this 3 times. If you ever need to talk please don't hesitate on writing me. I'm always here for you and to pray with you... Please let me know what happens.My husband and I will be praying for you and your husband.May the Lord bless your home with a child, Love, Laura
Hi LauraThanks for your words and prayers. We're finally pregnant! Did the test today and it was postive. Its taking a while for it to sink in, its been 5 years of trying and its finally here. Gods timing is perfect, and this is obviously the right time. Its finally our time to be parents :)Thanks for your prayers, we pray that your baby continues to grow strong and that God will bless you two as you continue to encourage others.Love, Lynn
