Our Fabulous Weekend Getaway: Day 2

I still have lots more pictures to post from "Day 1" but I am super excited to move on to "Day 2" and you will find out why, soon. What looked like was going to be a boring, but relaxing day turned out to be one of the most exciting, B-E-S-T days of our lives (so far...) after we found this out...

I'M PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We found out on September 11, 2010, that we are going to have a little blessing!!!! I wish I knew the words to express our happiness, gratefulness, astonishment, excitement and all the feelings in between those, but I just do not believe those words exist. I have never talked about our journey to conceive on the blog. Actually, we really never discussed it with anybody but it was kind of a long journey. We have been "trying" for over a year and I recently received the unfortunate news that I most likely was suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). But thankfully, it looks like that diagnosis was wrong and the amazing God we serve has given us this opportunity, like no other, to become Mommy & Daddy!!!!

I know that it is super early (I am 5 weeks tomorrow), and lots can still go wrong, but there is NO way we could keep this a secret! I know the Lord holds everything in His hands and no matter what happens, He will be there with us every step of the way : ) So, I have nothing but positive thoughts and prayers!

Okay, so about the posts on our trip...they have obviously taken a detour, and for a GREAT reason! Tomorrow will start my weekly pregnancy updates and then Friday I will resume posting about our trip : ) I am SO happy I am finally able to blog about this! I hope you all enjoy following our "pregnancy journey"!

Happy Hump Day : )

Taken the day we found out we are going to be parents : )  SO HAPPY!!!!!!!
