Hey girls! I feel somewhat guilty telling my story, but honestly it truly is a miracle.
3 weeks ago tonight my dad passed away suddenly of a heart attack at the age of 64. It was the absolute worst day of my life. I got to my parent's house when the paramedics were working on him. My mom witnessed the entire thing. She's doing ok now but of course she's sad and misses him. We're a very close-knit, strong family so we're going to be ok. On a happier note, two little blessings will be arriving to our family. A boy in May (my brother's son, his first baby). And another baby (sex unknown) due in June (my sister's 3rd). I have 2 nephews, ages 5 and 3.
My common-law hubby and I haven't been TTC but we eventually want children together (he has a 6 yr daughter). I went off the pill in June and we used protection. When my dad died it was such an emotional time for us and when we got intimate this month, we didn't use protection. In a time of sadness and emptiness I think we just both wanted to feel the ultimate closeness and love. We never imagined that it would result in a baby this fast!! We had no idea what our fertility issues would be, since I'm 38 and he's 40. I was actually going to make an appt in a few months to see my Dr to get a referral to a fertility Dr.
We are sooooo excited!! This is my 2nd pregnancy (lost one at 8 weeks, 12 years ago) so I'm praying that this little bean is digging some strong roots right now and wants to stay, grow and be born into an amazing family.
I look forward to getting to know you all and to read your stories and share mine.
Sending "sticky bean" vibes to everyone!!!!
