We went Facebook official! It was actually weird how much anxiety I had posting this on Facebook. For some reason, it’s been really nice to keep this pregnancy a secret throughout the first trimester with only my husband and our families knowing. I think the anxiety stems from being scared that something bad could happen. But I know that’s probably a normal way to feel… Even pregnant woman who didn’t go through IVF have similar fears. I am ultimately excited to finally have the cat out of the bag. I’m not a good secret keeper, and obviously this is a huge one! Here’s what we said:
After 2 rounds of IVF, 3 surgeries, 1 miscarriage/ectopic pregnancy, being poked with a needle over 180 times, countless blood draws and ultrasounds, and waiting/praying for 520 days to start our family....
We are so excited to announce that we are FINALLY expecting our little miracle in June 2018!!!! **Side note** I remember how much it hurt to see these kinds of pictures on Facebook when I was struggling to get pregnant. It feels so surreal to finally have these pictures of my own pregnancy, and I'm so grateful! But I also haven't forgotten our difficult journey to get here, so I want to apologize if these pictures make anyone feel sad/hurt/frustrated. I will always keep my "infertility sisters" in my heart/prayers, and I'm always here to offer support and love. Keep fighting and don't give up!
