Drum Roll Please ....

I was thinking my next post on here would be tomorrow. After all, we have just concluded several months of testing and had an appointment with a fertility specialist tomorrow at 9am. I thought by tomorrow evening we might could post on some type of plan for the coming months.

That was until today happened. Today, we found out we are PREGNANT!
Yes, 100% completely naturally we were given a miracle. We are ecstatic, and majorly shocked - this is after 5 1/2 years of trying to get pregnant.

This morning was pretty crazy. I took two tests at home and as soon as possible called the doctor's office. I'll have to admit I didn't quite comprehend or believe the first test, and immediately said "um, read this" and handed it to Thomas. (It was very hard to read, it simple said "pregnant.") =)
The doctor's office was great about getting me in today for blood work, and by this afternoon we had verification that we are pregnant!

It is still early, I'm just 5 weeks. So we have a long way to go...until Valentines Day to be exact.

This could have never happened outside of God's will. And we are also pretty sure our lifestyle changes helped make the difference.

We don't have a way to check on my health and if it improved. I was still having some slight pain from the endometriosis the last couple months, but not as bad. But today while we were at the fertility clinic doing the blood tests we asked for the results from the most recent semen analysis - and they drastically improved, more than even imaginable. Based on that alone, I would encourage every couple out there dealing with infertility to try shifting their diets to no processed foods, no dairy, no grains, and lots of raw fruits and vegetables.

I am ecstatic for you both! I know that in God's timing all would work out. He led you to be the parents of two wonderful beautiful children and now He has blessed you a third time! This is so awesome and I can't wait to see you guys in July! You'll be approximately 10-11 weeks by then - right in the middle of morning sickness if you get that 'wonderful' symptom of pregnancy. I love you and am so very happy! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Thank you everyone!!!
It is absolutely incredible! We had absolutely no expectations that we would get pregnant and we are still in some shock. Yesterday was a great day for us. Praise be to God, who just "totally showed off" in our lives!

Hooray! We are so happy for you! We couldn't possibly have any better, brighter, or more loved grandchildren than we have right now, but it will still be nice to add to the group. Congratulations!
