"A final gospel truth that will contribute to our understanding of and hence the quality of our marriages relates to the degree in which we involve the Savior in our relationships as husbands and wives. As designed by our Heavenly Father, marriage consists of our first entering into a covenant relationship with Christ and then with each other. He and his teachings must be the focal point of our togetherness. As we become more like him and grow closer to him, we will naturally become more loving and grow closer to each other"

So I told myself over and over that when the day came when I was pregnant I wasn't going to tell ANYONE until we were at least 3 months along! Well lets be honest! Some secrets are just to good to keep! 


I have so much to say I don't even know where to start!!

Some of you know that I wanted to start my family more than anything! I love kids and couldn't wait for the day that I would become a mom myself! When we first were married we really didn't want to wait long before we had kiddos, well the Lord had another plan in mind! I had become very sick from a birth control shot I had a few months before getting hitched. We had been to Dr's multiple times always leaving with no further knowledge on what the issue was. Which was ok, but I broke down .... a lot! I know 2 years is NOT a long time and there are SO many girls that I know that have to wait many more years but when its you it feels like an eternity! And I now pray for those I know that struggle because it isn't easy. 
I had started on a fertility medication and that was the ticket! It worked the first round! I swear I knew I was pregnant that week but after having another check up with the Dr. and telling how I was feeling they had said that the meds can make you experience the same things you would if you were pregnant. So I was disappointed and went on just not feeling 100%. Weeks went by and it was my sisters wedding so I knew I didn't want to take a test and take away from any excitement from her big day. So when we got home I still waited a few days because I was just so nervous!! 
When I finally took a test I didn't know what to think! I didn't know if I read it wrong or what! So I called a friend and my Dr.! Well I was totally in denial for a few hours. I thought there was no way this was actually happening! My Dr. came into the salon that evening and literally had to reassure me that this was for real and that i WAS actually pregnant! 
When I got home I had a little gift for Rob (pic below) and when he opened it he was SO confused! He thought it was for a baby shower and was wondering why I would put the pregnancy test in with it! What a nerd! It took him a bit to realize it was all for him! He is SO happy and really hoping for a little boy! (we both do! I need a little baseball player!!) 
Anyway! Thats our great news! I am not far along, only about 10 weeks and due the end of February! My little nugget is kicking my butt and wears me out already! I am still in such amazement at the whole process! 

Oh and one more thing!! And not to sound rude but I just want to say that if any of you know anyone who struggles to get pregnant PLEASE be careful the things you say to them! I know people probably don't mean to offend others but it is such a painful thing to experience and what you say really can crush someone! Just encourage them and love and pray for them! And whatever you do.... don't ever tell someone "well.. maybe the Lord just doesn't want you to be a mother." I promise it doesn't help!!
