I received the call that I had been anxiously awaiting for the past nine days — it was my IVF coordinator. She was asking how I was doing, and I couldn’t lie, I told her, “I’m so nervous and excited.” Her response to that was, “Well, you should be excited because you’re pregnant!”
The joy and gratitude that came was so overwhelming and wonderful. We chatted for a few more minutes to discuss appointments and how things will go for the coming weeks. After getting off the phone, I fell to my knees to thank my Heavenly Father for blessing me with what I have fervently prayed and yearned for with all my heart: another blessing to enter into my life, which is YOU!
Then, I called Scott to let him know. He answered and as I tried to hold back the tears, I told him, “We’re having a girl! I’m pregnant!” He was beyond happy and excited to hear the news. We both can’t wait to meet you and hold you in our arms.
