Blessings Abound

On Sunday morning I handed Charlie a pee covered stick as he stepped out of the shower and said:
So this happened this morning…

IMG_8152_edited-1I’m just 4 weeks along today, with an EDD of January 8, 2014. We are basically existing in a state of shock and gratitude over here right now. God is good.

  7. Oh my god, Josey!!! I am in shock right now and may be shedding a happy tear!!!! Ahhh!! When you wrote on my post ‘for selfish reasons’.. I thought “Hmm that is an odd way to put it.” and now it makes sense!!! Ahh I am SO SO happy for you and your family! 🙂 What amazing news. Now this makes me want this cycle to work even more for me! Eeek! YAY!!

    I am over the moon for you!! You are an example of those ‘unexplained’ infertility couples who now have a lot of explaining to do!! LOL . So happy for you. And little Stells will be the best big sister ever. You have been an amazing mom…what a wonderful journey!

    1. Ya, I still have PCOS but this is pretty awesome. I didn’t O until CD38 this cycle. More on that later!

    Now I am pretty sure some magic macro is working through this corner of the blogosphere.

    Within a week, yours is the second surprise BFP I am reading about.


  16. FINALLY!!!!! 😀

  17. That’s freaking AWESOME I’m bloody thrilled for you!!!!!

  18. Woot, woot! I was hoping you get one of those surprises that make life so frickin’ great! Congrats! Wishing you a very boring textbook pregnancy! Enjoy every moment you can (easier said than done), because the second one flies by twice as fast as the first one.

  19. WOO!! Congrats!

    I don’t know how I missed this! Congratulations Josey! This is so huge. I am so flipping excited. You’re going to have another baby!! Good Job Josey’s body!!!

  48. We have followed VERY similar paths (although mine involved IVF) and our children are just 4 days apart. I have always loved following your blog because our children are so close in age. I was shocked but happy for you to see this. Congrats.

    1. Thanks! Do you ever blog?

  49. Congrats to you!! It’s so crazy! With my first little dude, you and I were about 8 weeks apart (I think it ended up being 7 once it was all said and done). And now it’s almost the same again! I’m almost 13 weeks in! We beat that PCOS 2nd time around! 🙂

    1. Yay!

      Is this OliveLeah? If not, do you have a blog?

  50. Holy cramp, I’ve been out of the loop and totally missed this!! Congrats, girl!! SO exciting!!!

    1. Hahaha!! I guess that ‘stop’ button on my browser didn’t do the trick when I wanted to cancel this typo-message. But ‘holy cramp’ makes me laugh in this instance. Haha!!

  51. Holy crap, I’ve been out of the loop and totally missed this!! Congrats, girl!! SO exciting!!!
