No More Waiting

Two years of waiting...

Endless amount of tears shed...

Tons of doctor visits...

Thousands of dollar spent...

Sleepless nights...

Countless injections...

Hurt, hope and despair...

Prayer after prayer...

All leading up to this:

Staci said...

Congratulations! I am so happy for you and praying for an easy pregnancy :) Motherhood brings many of the same things that you listed in your post...the waiting (just 9 months now), sleepless nights, thousands of dollars spent:), tons of doctors visits (during pregnancy and all the "well baby visits"), hope for your child's future, tears (pregnancy hormones as well as tears of joy when the peanut(s) arrive...did I mention the sleepless nights? :). But all of those will have a different meaning now because they will mean that you are a mom!

Allisyn said...

I found your blog a few days ago, and I just want to say congrats.. on your little peanuts.

prettybyrdie said...

OH MY GOODNESS. I have been following your blog for about a month. My husband and I were NOT trying to conceive, but we do want to have a family some day. Well, I was about 4 days late, which is very unusual for me, about a week ago. I took a pregnancy test like the pink lines one in your photo. I was just taking it to be safe, and really did not think I could be pregnant. My husband went in the bathroom to check the test, and he laughingly said it had two lines. I looked at the test and saw one bold pink line and one faint one. I figured the faint line was just where the second line would be if the test was positive. BUT IT LOOKS JUST LIKE YOUR TEST IN THE PHOTO!! Am I pregnant? I just made him go out to buy a test with words. If I am pregnant, this poor child will have a mom who can't even read a pregnancy test, LOL. Thanks for posting this photo!

AND

Congratulations, I am so happy for you!!!

tessa said...

Delurking here just to say congratulations. I've been following your story for awhile and am so thrilled for you guys. Babies are such a gift from God and worth all the work you put in to get them here. This peanut will be so loved. You will be amazing parents!
