Hope Fulfilled

I'm so happy to be wrong, never been so happy to be wrong.

We are pregnant!!!! It's unbelievable. It's miraculous. I am amazed and humbled and shocked and incredibly happy.

All I can do is thank God over and over. Thank Him for this amazing hope that is both fulfilled and reborn. Thank Him for all the loving family and friends whose support and prayers have meant so much to us through all the steps to this point. I am in awe of how many people want this for us, want us to have our dream.....

In awe and humbled and grateful.

Thank you.

So here are all the little details in case you're interested:

The clinic nurse called me at work this morning and I didn't have a chance to think of asking for her to wait, I just held my breath as she quickly asked if I took a home pregnancy test this morning.

I said, "No," my heart starting to pound, not really understanding why she'd ask the question.

She immediately responded, "Well you should have because you're pregnant, very nicely pregnant at that."

All I could say was "Wow" as my breath rushed out of me.

My male colleagues around me were typing away in their cubicles and all I wanted to do was cry and all I could do was try to keep breathing it was so incredibly unbelievable.

Although I imagined yelling the news from the rooftops, I somehow managed kept the news all to myself for 4 hours! For 4 hours, I worked (or tried to), stopped by the clinic with some questions and to get more progesterone and then I came home and plotted how I would tell Andrew. Because hey! this is a moment I've dreamed of for years.

I know we have a long way to go from here but today I am relieved and grateful and so happy. And for those of you who like numbers, the numbers from the blood test were 317. :) Next test is on Saturday.

Roar!!!! :)


  1. Oh that is the most wonderful news! It made my day, so I can just imagine how yours went. Love to you, Andrew and that new little baby (babies?)!!

  2. OH MY GOD. I am soooooooooooooo very happy for you. I am without words right now. I was hoping so much for you Stacey. I just will keep hoping. Take care, rest, be good to yourself.


  3. Thanks Hillary! Thanks Sacha! I am really quite without words myself but I'm permanently smiling.
    All evening and all this morning I kept randomly saying, "Andrew, I'm pregnant!!" It'll take a while to sink in.
