The Post You've Been Waiting For!

Did the IVF work? Everyone wants to know and some people already know. I promised Avery before he left on deployment that I would not reveal the answer until he confirmed that he knew.....

Well I tried and I am sad to say that I just can't keep that promise. Plus, in all fairness I promised him only that I wouldn't reveal it on Facebook (and I have kept the FB part promise...though others have guessed). He didn't say anything about blogger. ;-)

Yes, the IVF worked. God gave us a miracle. (Or two, we don't know how many are in there yet.) I am 5 weeks and at 6 weeks I get to go have an u/s to see how many little lambs the lord blessed us with. I read somewhere that if you make it to 9 weeks you have a 90% chance of your pregnancy making it. So keep praying everyone.

Though I am over the moon....I am still thinking about others who are still waiting for their turn and their blessing of a miracle. I don't plan to make this blog all about my pregnancy now....though it will certainly be mentioned. I am still a sailor's lady who fought over 2 years to get this miracle. I will never forget how hard it was and the fears that still linger.

Thank you everyone for your support. I love you and am thrilled to be back to blogging.

Ps. If you know me on facebook, please do not announce that you know until Avery & I have done so. Just post comments to this blog. Thanks!


  1. God has blessed you and I could not be happier for you guys! I will continue my prayers! :)
    p.s. How exciting!!!!

  2. Oh Liz! I'm so happy for you! I was wondering when you commented on your FB that you weren't feeling well. I'm like hmmmm I hope it's Morning Sickness! Well not that I would wish morning sickness on anyone because...well it kicks my butt and makes me miserable.

    Okay totally rambling! I'm so happy for you both! Sending all kinds of sticky baby dust your way! :)

  3. That's such wonderful news Liz, the best news I can think of to hear! You and Avery will make fantastic parents!

    Hugs to you both!
