Happy Mother's Day to each and every momma out there! Today is my second Mother's Day and sometimes I am still in disbelief that I have this little guy. I mention it occasionally and today is definitely a day to celebrate because my hubby and I had to give it our all and then some to bring Landon into this world. We struggled with infertility and a little over a year ago finally won!
This is our story in a very tiny nutshell! For 4+ years, we tried to start our family. After a few losses and incredible heartache, we were suddenly unable to conceive at all naturally anymore. We sought out a specialist, and after one year of many treatments and medications, we decided to see a new doctor. He suggested IVF, and we went for it!
When I found out we were pregnant, it was the morning before a meeting with a client. I vividly remember taking the test (1 week before I was supposed to go in for the official blood work to find out if the embryo stuck), and I just stared at those beautiful two pink lines with utter happiness.
I had my meeting, and I thought "this meeting can't end soon enough!" because all I wanted to do was go to the store to buy these adorable baby boy shoes we had been eyeing (yes, we knew it was a boy from doing genetic testing on the embryos!), and bring it home to tell Craig. That's exactly what I did. I brought the shoes home, put the pregnancy test in one of them, and then recorded Craig's reaction when I walked inside the house with it. It was perfect and we were on cloud 9 that IVF worked for us!
We'd love to hear your story! What was it like when you found out you were pregnant, and how did you tell your spouse?! Comment below!
