I am Pregnant! You heard me......Pregnant!

Listen up, Good People.
I've waited almost four months to share this exciting news and have almost written to you everyday.
I'm pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Couldn't be more excited and wanting to shout it from the mountaintops.

If you've followed this blog at all, you've been with me through a lot of tears, frustrations, ugly faces, and 100 percent lack of faith in God, myself and anything that has anything to do with babies and me. I've bitched and complained and also found faith again, all while writing in this blog. It's been a place where I could share the almost unexplainable pain and suffering that I've gone through trying to get pregnant and start a family with Jason. And every time I wrote that I got my period again, or IVF didn't work or an adoption fell through, I always felt a sigh of relief at the end of this little box. Somehow, just writing it all down, barfing it out, sharing it, would always make it better and knowing that good thoughts were coming my way, made the days a little easier.

I'm no expert, I'm no scientist, and I'm about as far from a theologian as one can get, but I can sit here at my desk and tell you that sharing this journey with you has been one of the most profoundly spiritual experiences of my life. You, who sits there and reads this, are a witness and many of you have prayed for me, lit candles for me, and I cannot thank you enough. I'm on my knees in gratitude and am weeping as I write this. You are my miracle. That you've cared enough to care, and ask and comment, has been my salvation. Thank you to the ends of the earth and beyond where the sweetness of miracles live.

We are Fifteen Weeks Pregnant and having a Girl. Science worked. God worked. It worked.
God willing, it will all continue working and on June 8th, or somewhere around there, I will give birth to Ruby.

And if I may be so bold, to anyone who is reading this and has been on a long road or journey of your own, without results or what you desire, PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP! Take it from me, persistence is the answer to getting what you want in life, no matter what it is.
I'm here if you need me.
XO, Andrea


  1. I am very happy for you! Some night I lay awake and wonder about how you are and how this stage of life will go. To read this makes me feel that sending you good thoughts and sending prayers was worth every minute.

    Even though we have never met.

    What you are becoming already means the world to you. Enjoy this time. Don't rush it or let anyone tell you what it was like for them too often or too deeply. This is your experience. Go after it with a clean mind and heart and listen to your body. She's talkig already.

  2. We should start a drive for photo frames: I bet you'll need them!!

    Ps: what did the dog say? :-)

  3. Oh Andrea!!!
    Super Congratulations to you and Jason (and to the little daughter to be)!!! This is the greatest news in the world! I am so happy to read this, and so happy for you all! Wow! Keep us posted girl!
    Love & Hugs Always,
    Your #1 Fan & Friend From Dallas,

  4. Couldn't be more happier for you and Jason. God is good! You are going to be great parents and have such a wonderful time being a momma. Prayers continue, thanks start and can't wait to hear about all the new "firsts" you are going to have!!!!

    And you are so right to those who have YET to experience their own miracle. Have faith.


  5. Angela, The dogs are very happy!! Wiley puts his head on my belly every morning and the Blizzard and Schweetie smile at me more often.
    Than you all for the warm wishes and prayers and good thoughts. They mean the world to me!
