**Big News**SFYTT

Yes...it is *HUGE*news! I have left a few bread crumbs over the last two days, but this is the official announcement!!! I am beyond excited. It has been a long, hard journey to get to this point. I already have two beautiful children that bring me such joy, but I have been wanting a baby for about 3 years. I thought that it would be easy; just like the other two, but things didn't work out that way. I was overjoyed to take a pregnancy test in March to find out that I was pregnant. I really didn't believe the two pink lines...if you only knew how long I had waited to see those two pink lines. I went to the Doctor in April to find out that the pregnancy was most likely not viable and indeed it wasn't. I was broken hearted. I felt cheated and discouraged. Not only had I suffered two months of morning sickness and fatigue, but now I had to untell everyone that I had already told. That was so hard for me. We had been so excited. Well...you can only imagine how I have been feeling since then. I really haven't been myself, I have been nauseated, the thoughts of sitting down and stamping have been more than I could stand. I kept falling asleep in the afternoons and feeling altogether rotten. I finally decided two Fridays ago that I needed to get back to my normal routine and snap out of the *funk* I had been in. Before I returned to my exercise routine, I thought it best to take a pregnancy test because my *monthly bill* ,for lack of a better term, hadn't returned since the miscarriage. I took yet another pregnancy test which shockingly came up positive. I really thought that maybe it was a fluke and I had some HCG left over from the previous pregnancy. I called the nurse and she told me that it had been too long and that I needed to come in for a blood test. I went in last Wednesday and had some blood drawn. Of course I had to wait 48 long hours to get the results back. I called back on Friday the 3rd to get the unbelievable news that I was 2-3 months pregnant. I told her it was impossible; that I had a miscarriage in April. She consulted with the Dr. and I was told to come in that afternoon. I had an ultrasound which showed a 11 1/2 week fetus with a strong heartbeat. I am thrilled that I am already 3 months in and I didn't even know. Yes...all of the signs were there, but I really thought it was my hormones playing tricks on me from before.

We are all still scratching our heads as to how this is possible. People keep asking me if maybe I had twins or if it really was the same baby. The answer is No, because this baby is due in Januray and my other baby had a November due date. I had to include some photos of the *fortunes* we got in our fortune cookies a couple of days after we took the pregnancy test, but before I had my blood drawn. The top one is my husbands and the bottom one is from my cookie. Crazy, huh?

Well, that is more information than I thought I would share. I have kept the miscarriage in, even though I wanted to tell everyone so that you might know where I have been coming from and for my lack of posting and creativity in general. I am hoping that I am on the tail end of my morning sickness and fatigue. I usually have great pregnancies with tons of energy after the morning sickness ends, so I am keeping my fingers crossed. I can't believe I am sending my youngest to first grade on the 20th and bringing a newborn into the world. Some may say I am crazy and maybe I am, but I am beyond excited and can't wait to have this little one to myself all day long while the other kids are at school. It will feel like my first...that is until 3:30 rolls around and the kids walk through the door! LOL!

I guess I should get around to the card, huh? This is another fabulous sketch by Jen Del Muro, who announced yesterday of her impending birth! I think we are due at the same time! Do you know how long I have kept this crazy stamp set and pregnant girl stamp around just so I could make this card? Amy R and Taylor made a card years and years ago using this combo and I just loved it. The pregnant gal and the big work together perfectly. I started out by picking out some fun, *kindof* gender neutral papers from My Mind's Eye. I created the base by layering paper and doing some crazy sewing. I stamped the b and the g using Berry Sorbet ink by Papertrey Ink.

The girl was stamped using brown StazOn ink and then colored using prismacolor markers and copics. I decided to change the shape into a tag so that I would have a nice place to add some ribbon since last week I didn't use any at all! I made the circle smaller than the sketch indicated, but it would have covered up my focal image. I stamped the star image from Nursery Necessities and punched it out using the star punch. All of the edges have been distressed using Vintage Photo distress ink. I stamped the news sentiment onto a strip of chocolate chip cardstock and then lined it up in the circle punch so that it would align perfectly. I added a few buttons to the side for detail.


I guess I will save this card until I find out that one of my friends are expecting.

Kelly...so sorry to hear of your miscarriage. I personally have had 5 miscarriages. They are beyond devasating. People truly do not understand the loss unless they themselves have experienced one. I have since been blessed with 2 beautiful children who are the love of my life! No doubt your new little one will be so special because of his/her surprise arrival. Babies truly are blessings from above! Hope you are feeling better soon!!

Love your card, and sitting on top of the world for you!!! Congratulations, sweet friend!

Marie said...

Having and loving children is never something you should feel "crazy" for or apologize about. :) They are precious gifts and I am so happy for you and that you were able to get pregnant so soon after your miscarriage. I have had several myself and know the "funk" you speak of, and it is GREAT that your funk ended up being a new pregnancy and not just residual hormones! Best wishes to you!!

Lil' Inker said...

You know, I was checking out your blog yesterday and I saw the little baby counter in the corner and I was thinking to myself, "Gee, I don't remember an announcement" and I went through your posts to find the big news and here it is today!!! CONGRATS!!!! What an amazing story. The fortune cookies make it so sweet. What a funny thing. Congrats!

Christie said...

Carly said...

Congratulations Kelly!!! I am so happy for you! What a precious and delightful announcement!

Jenn D said...

Congrats on your pregnancy! I had a similar situation with my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies. My first pregnancy went so well and I didn't expect to have issues with the 2nd. I was devastated to have miscarried. Then almost a year to the date of my miscarriage my 2nd son was born. He is the most kind and gentle child. He's almost 4 now and I can look back on the situation and see that it was meant to be. That wasn't something I could do years ago.

I love you card. The sketch is fantastic and I can't wait to play along.

Congrats again!

Vicki said...

This is terrific news and a true blessing. I am very happy for you Kelly! God bless you and your family.

Mel Hopes said...

this is the best new ever!!!! I love all 5 of my delightful children, (well they were delightful until they all turned into teenagers) now they are only delightful some of the time :)

I hope all goes well for you, I love the card and what a fun way to tell people your great news. I think I may have to make some of them to have on hand when my DS and DIL finally tell me they are expecting. I can't wait but say nothing until they are ready.

Heavenly Father blesses us in mysterious ways and I am so happy for you!!!!

Blessings to your family.

Carla Murphy said...

Jackie Pedro said...

Such wonderful news!! I love that you shared with all of us that you experienced a miscarriage. I suffered through four miscarriages before having my two beautiful girls. I still mourn the loss of those four children and wonder what life would have been like had I not miscarried, but life has gone on! Good luck to your family!!

Your card is FABULOUS and what a way to announce your pregnancy!!

Kelly you made me cry because I had a similar incident in my family. My only son's wife (both got married mid-March) announced her pregnancy on Father's Day (she was two month's pregnant) only to have a miscarriage July 3rd. I am so happy you got pregnant again and am wishing the same miracle for them. God bless your family!

Congratulations on the wonderful news. It sounds like you have been on a roller coaster the last few months. Take care of yourself & your family. I loved the fortunes that you received.

Anonymous said...

spaterI just love your announcement card!!!! Congrats.
Here is my story: I miscarried with my first pregnancy and fully understand how hard a loss it is. I then had a boy and girl without any problem. I finally had to use fertility drugs to get my third child. I still wanted another baby. My third child was so concerned about me being all alone when she started kindergarten that she "prayed" her little sister into existence!!! It was a little weird starting over with a baby with three children in school but I wound not change a thing.
Best of luck to you and your family.

Soozie4Him said...

Oh Kelly, I am SO excited for you!! God surely has special plans for this baby! It's kinda interesting that you missed out on your first trimester, huh? I still have that SU Big News set - where is the PG lady from - is that an SU set? I'm making lots of these cards lately because my 2 married daughters have married friends who are having babies.

And I'm expecting my 2nd grandbaby in 2 weeks and I can hardly wait! My oldest DD has our precious Little Anna, who is 16 months old, so these siblings will be close together. And since they decided not to find out ahead of time what the gender of the baby is, I'll be mighty busy shopping for boy clothes if the baby is a boy! If it's another girl, then she'll be ALL SET - between the clothes I bought, all the gifts, then the HUGE bags of clothes a family from church gave her - so many lovely little girls' clothes - and they're the same taste that my DD has, so that's nice too!

Congrats again! And I'll be praying for a smooth, healthy pregnancy and a happy healthy little one to greet you in the New Year!

Wonderful, wonderful news - A HUGE congratulations!

Rosemary Olson said...

I can't even begin to tell you how much our stories are alike (miscarriage and all, even the part about telling the doctor there is no way I could be pregnant, until we all saw the ultrasound) but let's just say that my third (who is now 9 and was a January baby too!) was and is still my gift from God. I am going to pray for you everyday until you have this healthy dear sweet baby.

Julie Mutch said...

Hi Kelly,

This is wonderful news - huge congratulations to you and your family. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss before this miracle, I can relate as I lost 3 before I had my two precious girls. It doesn't make it any easier at the time, but I just came to accept that the time wasn't right for us to have a child and when it was we had our healthy babies.

I've been a huge fan of your work for a long time now. I'm horrible at leaving comments, but I enjoy lurking. I just wanted to leave a note on your big news, though. :)

All the best to you for a healthy pregnancy and hope the morning sickness goes away soon. Take care!

Hugs,
Julie

Oh Kelly, I am so sorry about the emotional roller coaster you have been on for the last number of months! I am so very happy about the wonderful new now! Congratulations to you. I know how stressful it can be to want a baby...it took DH and I two years of trying before we had our first. The two longest years of our marrage! There is little more stressful! God's blessings on you and your little one on the way!

Hugs!

Amy said...

Oh my dear Kelly, I can't begin to tell you how "over the moon" happy I am for you and your family!!! What a story with such a happy ending. I am so sorry for your miscarriage, but I know you continued to have faith, even when it didn't seem possible, and then it DID happen! Wowzers, this whole experience has made you stronger woman and mother--just what you'll need to keep up with your new baby!

Remember--there are 12 and 14 years difference between George and his older siblings, Hank and Kendra, so if I can do it--you can surely do it!

Big sweet hugs to you!

{{{kelly}}}! I DID see the baby countdown on your blog the other day and wondered if you and jen were due around the same time. I searched to see if you had mentioned "what was going on", but nada.

I'm so excited for you and am really glad to know you are doing well and getting back into your groove. no "funks" allowed, friend! Take care and keep us posted!

Okay, so I'm a week late in my comment, BUT wow CONGRATULATIONS to you. I totally understand the "craving" for a baby. I have 5 of my own.

I mean, when else can you get fat and people call it cute????

Kelly -- your post brought tears to my eyes. How wonderful for you!! And yes, a surprise indeed. Very excited for you - and am so glad that your wish has come true. My SIL went through a very similar thing -- and like you, didn't think she could get PG that quick, but she did! YEAH for you!!

and of course I think your card is FAB-U-LOUS...

wishing you a wonderful, healthy, happy, pregnancy!!!
