For some of you that have been following, you know about our great news, but we haven’t shared it on Facebook yet, or extended family. So, we sent out our announcement this week, now that i’m entering my 12th week.
Short recap, I have two children, both of whom I had in my teens. I consider them my blessings even though it was hard raising them on my own for 10 years after their father and I separated.
I then met the husband I asked God for and he too has a little girl. He has shared custody and so she is with us every other week.
We were struggling with infertility. I have endometriosis and due to that, they had to remove one of my fallopian tubes and the other one is severely damaged and obstructed. So after a lot of prayer and talking, we embarked the IVF boat in September 2012.
Trial n1 (November 2012): 1 egg, fertilized : pregnant. Miscarried at 6 weeks
Trial n2 (March 2013): 1 egg, fertilized: no pregnancy
Trial n3 (May 2013): 1 egg, fertilized : pregnant, now 12 weeks
So, I am now 35 and when the baby will be born, it will have a 20 year age difference with his/her eldest sister. I am so looking forward to this new addition to our family and thank God for giving us this blessing once more.
