After being told by our doctor that he was 80% sure we were having a boy, we found out through blood work, that we are actually having a little girl!! 🌺🌸👣

When I received this news over the phone, I was at a gas station because I needed a snack……due to being super nauseous. I started screaming and crying and telling her I was so excited and in shock by her news! I just kept asking her if she was positive and she told me she was 99.6% positive.

We got this news about a month ago, but we have not shared it because we wanted to wait until we had our 20 week ultrasound to confirm that we are having a sweet little girl.

With the ultrasound a few weeks ago, it was confirmed that we are having a sweet baby girl and we could not be more thrilled!! We are so excited to announce to the world that our baby girl is developing perfectly and we are so humbled and thankful for all God has given us this year!

I just keep thinking about how in six months our lives have been completely transformed, from a two person family to a four person family and how God has fulfilled so many of our deepest desires within a year!

I just want to encourage you and inspire you with our story! God wants to fulfill the desires of your heart as well, while exceeding your greatest expectation!! Do not lose hope, instead fill your mind with the truth that God loves you, created you, and knows exactly what you need and wants to exceed your expectations!!!!

LET’S BE REAL

You are unique, special and perfect just as you are, do not compare your life to anyone else’s!!! If you do, that is the quickest way to become depressed, discouraged and hopeless!!!

The only reason I can say this with full assurance, is because I have had to overcome the temptation to compare. I got married pretty young, so at 28, I’ve been married for seven years and I don’t think you can imagine how many times my husband and I have been asked “when we were going to start our family.”

Whether people meant to bring condemnation by their words or not, that was a struggle I faced almost on a daily basis. We tried to get pregnant for about three years but WE really, really tried for a year and a half. Every month I would take a pregnancy test and when it came back negative, I would cry and cry and cry. Lol HOLLA AT ME OF YOU HAVE EVER FELT THE SAME WAY!!! Looking back now, I laugh at the moments I spent being sad, because God has always had a plan for us!!

About six months into really, really trying, we both decided that we didn’t want to wait any longer and we wanted to pursue adopting. After finishing this process, something broke within me. I let go and actually told my husband that I would be completely fine not having our own children. If that’s not what God had in store, I knew that there were babies out there with our names engraved on their hearts, that we were called to adopt.

After I finally let go, a month later we found out that we were pregnant!

Letting go is the most freeing and beautiful experience. I stopped worrying and being in fear that something was wrong, even though the test showed that my husband and I were just fine. Don’t allow worry, stress, or anxiety to steal anymore of your time. God has an amazing plan in store for you!!! I just want to encourage you to trust him and every moment.

I love you all and would love to hear your story, struggles, or fears, and I would love to pray with you!!!

      1. I can truly relate to your story Michelle. We tried to get pregnant for 2 1/2 years as newlyweds, living as missionaries in Nigeria. It was so discouraging month after month to get the negative results of pregnancy tests when we so desperately wanted a child. But, God’s timing is perfect, bcuz about 6 mos before moving back from Nigeria, I fell ill with Typhoid Fever & Maleria at the same time & came very close to death. It took strong meds & a couple of months to completely recover. During the illness I was so glad I wasn’t pregnant & they were able to treat me with the needed drugs, thst they wouldn’t have been able to use if I’d been pregnant. I was also thankful that I didn’t have an infant or toddler to worry about being cared for or even falling ill when I couldn’t even care for myself. Three weeks after our move back to the US, I found out I was pregnant with our first born, Stefan. Our active healthy baby boy is now 25 yrs old. We had no problem getting pregnant with our following 3 children. We don’t always understand God’s timing when were are in the midst of our disparity, but His timing is perfect.

  2. So exciting! Something similar happened to us! Been married almost 7 years, for 3 years we tried to have a baby, but many miscarriages later and 4 doctors later we were told it would never happen (however I know my God is greater than that) we started pursuing adoption, which took months, but 4 days after getting our license we got a call for a 5 day old baby boy. When he was 10 months old I found out I was pregnant without any fertility! Praise Jesus! 3 weeks ago we finalized our adoption! Henry my son will be 14 months old next week, and I am 20 weeks pregnant now, had the full anatomy scan and everything looks great! It’s been a journey but it was God’s plan all along and we are so blessed!

  4. Congratulations! We faced all the questions too. We always made excuses why we were waiting, but we knew without a science experiment and an act of God, we would never conceive. Almost three years after we were married and one IVF, we were finally pregnant. We actually went against doctor’s advice and implanted when my lining was to thick. We told him we were trusting God and to proceed with the implant. She’ll be 10 on Christmas Eve and so far God is good with us having just her. Perhaps He’ll still surprise us one day, but if not we’re happy with the blessing He’s already given us.
