Pregnant

On the very same day we were about to match with K, I saw this:

And then this:

We are in complete and utter shock. Thankful for this miracle, but so shocked we can't even feel much of anything but shock right now. What a miracle, thank you God.

I am so incredibly happy and for you guys. I'm tearing up right now!

Carrie said...

OH MY GOSH!!!!! What a miracle!!!! I have been following your story because it was so similar to mine. We tried for almost 3 years to have a baby, did numerous fertility treatments including IVF...all of which failed. We were all set to try IVF one more time this past June, when in May I found out I was pregnant....the old fashioned way. We were in complete shock. Even at almost 25 weeks pregnant, it is still so hard to believe that a baby boy is growing inside me. People always told me God's timing is perfect, but it was soooo hard for me to believe that at the time. Now I believe. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! I wish you a healthy and happy 9 months of pregnancy!!!!!

Sarah said...

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!! :) No doubt-A MIRACLE!!! Congrats!!! :)

Amber said...

Isn't it CRAZY how God works!! Congratulations! I totally understand the "shock" and praying for you and your hubby as you make the "transition"!

Amy said...

Congratulations, that is awesome news and I am sure you are still in complete shock :)

With that being said, speaking from adoption then a bio mom get some thick skin because you are going to hear lots of "oh, that's how it ALWAYS happens - you decide to adopt and end up pregnant" It gets old after awhile :)

Britney said...

CHILLS! What a great testament to trusting God's plan for our lives! God has intervened in your life, Hillary and is creating a miracle! WOWOWWOWOWOWOWOWOWWWWW

Stephanie said...

Hillary, you are one of those ever elusive urban myths. :-)))
Congratulations!
I pray you have a very wonderful, text book boring and uneventful pregnancy. May we hear only good things like this from now on!

Christa said...

I'm hugging you with congrats through the commenting section because I'm ecstatically happy for you Hillary! I'll be watching for updates but if I've ever heard of someone's prayers being answered, this is it!!!!!!

Cassandra said...

I am over the moon for you - how exciting!!! I didnt even know that you possibly suspected that you could be.

**DOING A HAPPY DANCE FOR YOU**

I feel like such a debbie downer for saying this but while its an absolute miracle it will no doubt fuel the "adopt and you'll get pregnant" wives tale.....

Lindsay said...

Praise be to God!!!!! I have tears in my eyes and I don't even "know" you! Dear Lord, let this be a blessed and healthy pregnancy!

The Curtis Family said...

HILLARY!!!! UN.BELIEVABLE! Just goes to show what our God is capable of. I'm overwhelmed with joy for you!

I dont comment on your blog very often. But I've been following for ever it seems... and while I am sitting here waiting for our babysitter to show up I non chalantly signed into my blogger to kill some time.


When I saw this, I seriously sat here for atleast two minutes and just said "WOW." to myself over and over and over and over. I have prayed for you and I am so thankful to God for your miracle that he is blessing you with. My husband and I "tried" to get pregnant for almost 3 years with the help of fertility treatments... and guess what... it happened the old fashioned way. When we very LEAST expected it to. My 10 month old boy is asleep in his crib upstairs right now. If anyone out there is still trying ..... KEEP TRYING. God has His own plan for your life. Look at what happened to me?! And look what just happened to HILLARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Congratulations a million times over sweet girl!! And congrats to your husband as well!! This made my month!!!!!


Oh... I gotta go run and tell my husband!!

One Who Understands said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I've been lurking forever. I'm a former infertile who like YOU got pregnant after stopping treatment. Our little girl is 20 months now.

I've been faithfully praying that God would open your womb since I got my BFP on June 1s 2009. So excited to see a prayer answered!

I'll be praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy!

Many Blessings!
Amanda

Oh... I just want to cry. What a miracle. What an amazing God we serve. I am hoping this child will bring so much joy into your life. I am a little behind on finding out about your pregnancy, and I just finished reading your last post about your fear about the spotting. All I can do is encourage you to pray, and to remember that it's all in His hands. May God bless you, your husband, and your little bean!
