“My husband and I had been together since we were 16 and in high school. Both sets of our parents were making the requests for us to give them their first grandchild less and less subtle.
We had gone on a trip to New Zealand to kick off the “baby making” and to focus on what could possibly be our last vacation as just two. Because my husband and I had been together for 10 years at that point we were extremely happy that our first attempt to conceive was successful. We announced that we were pregnant with our “Little Kiwi” on mothers day 2010. We had a gorgeous baby boy in December – 16 days late and 9 lbs 4 oz.”
After four years of infertility, the pregnancy that doctors said would never happen, miraculously happened out of the blue. This is me telling my mom after we found out. I was handing her pennies because she had been saving her change for us so that we could put it in an adoption fund and when we walked in the door, she handed me some more change. I was telling her we won’t be needing that and gave it back to her. In the bag was 3 pregnancy tests, one digital and one First Response Early Response and an EPT.

“Here is the way we announced to my family that we were going to have our first baby. We made a special trip up from Georgia to Pennsylvania for two days to make the announcement. This is my sister and my mom opening the gifts. Sorry if I sound a little bossy in the video, I wanted everything to be perfect. We were trying for over two years and were even told that we probably couldn’t have children without fertility help. It couldn’t have gone better. Everyone was thrilled. We didn’t have any ultrasound pictures at this time (I was only 6 weeks along), so we took a pregnancy test that showed the two positive lines and my husband had a really artsy picture that he took and we made unique frames for each member of the family that said “World’s Best Aunt and Uncle” and “World’s Best Appie and Grandpa.” (Appie is what my mom wants to be called.)”
