Proof that miracles can happen. . . twice

So this happened. . .


We just found out by home pregnancy test on 6/22 and confirmed via ultrasound at the Dr's office on 6/25 (when I was told I was already 10 weeks). 

I turned 12 weeks yesterday.

12 WEEKS!!!

100% unplanned.

No fertility treatments. At. All.

Like, we just had the conversation we would wait until Clara turned 2-2.5 yrs old before pursing an IVF transfer again. And now we will have two kids under age two. 

We. Are. Shocked.

(Baby at 10 weeks)

Because remember. . .  I'm not supposed to be able to get pregnant.

Not on my own.

Because I don't ovulate.

But apparently I did. Once.

And got pregnant the very. first. time.

(Baby at 12 weeks)

To say we are just a little excited is an understatement.

Feeling SO blessed. 

And we believe, 100%, without a doubt, that this little miracle is a precious gift from God himself. Words simply cannot describe the joy and gratitude we feel.

And here's some of the tests I took, because I was convinced I was reading them wrong, the second line was too faint etc. (I never had to use a home test with Clara).

 (These are from the Dollar Store so when I saw two lines I assumed they must be wrong because, hello, I bought them at the DOLLAR STORE.)

(Then I took two of these, because clearly the one above reads negative)

So there you have it. . . our little miracle in the works. 
Thanks for your prayers & support! So excited to share the fun news with you all!

  4. So excited for y'all! God is so amazing.

    Hilarious that you took so many tests. I had to take a digital test that literally read "pregnant" with Olivia because Andrew didn't see the two lines on the normal tests.

I found your blog through Aja's (we went to church through high school together) - and I actually think I went to church in Clear Lake with your mother in law perhaps (Clear Lake Church of Christ - I'm friends with her on facebook - small world!)... congratulations! That is so awesome and exciting!! I just joined the two kids under two club (like... second baby born 12 days ago) - it's going to be crazy, but amazing!
