The blog has been a little quiet lately and here’s why!
That’s right, we are expecting!
Geoffrey and I got married in November of 2014 and we started trying for kids in June 2015. In October, I found out I was pregnant and was so excited but super nervous. But, that little baby had a different future. And so did we. I had a miscarriage pretty early on and I was devastated. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through. I didn’t realize how attached I could grow to someone that was still inside of me. And it took a lot of prayer and turning to my husband for comfort to get through it. I learned a lot about myself and a lot about what my body was and wasn’t capable of.
The next few months were rough and I had several, though insignificant, trying health problems. After the shock wore off, I knew I wanted to try again, but I was scared. I was scared that the same thing would happen and I would be heart-broken again. But even before I had these thoughts, my husband kept saying, ‘It’ll be okay. We will have kids, just not right now.’ He was so certain and had so much faith that it carried me through. I leaned on him and on my Savior for the comfort I desperately needed and I went forward with faith. We found out on my birthday this year, April 24th, 2016, that I was pregnant again. I waited a long time to tell people, but finally had the strength and courage to be happy and excited! And now I’m half way through my pregnancy, and I’ll tell you it hasn’t been easy. But, I am so excited and feel extremely blessed to be able to welcome this little girl into our family in December. I know that families are eternal and most important and I know that even though hard times come, with love and faith in ourselves and in our family and our Savior, we will be strengthened and blessed more than we can ever imagine.
