The journey to this little bean inside of me has been a hard journey. But I know we would have never made it here without the many prayers that have covered us. I don't think we can even grasp how many people have been praying for this little life inside my body.

Close friends


Distant friends

Internet friends

Friends of friends

Friends of family

The list goes on and on. When I share my news it never fails that tears well up in both eyes. Mine because my dream is totally in the making. The other person's because their prayers have been answered.

Thank you all for praying for us. But I ask you to please NOT stop.

It is amazing how fears creep up into my head. I know that Grumps is carrying many himself. I told him what I do when they try to push into my head. I begin to thank God for this baby. I pray that He will protect it. That our baby will grow strong and healthy. I pray. The peace settles and my mind is cleared. Sometimes the peace lasts for the rest of the day. Other times, the fear moment comes back a few minutes later.

I know that many of you might think we are crazy for sharing our news with you so early. In fact back in the beginning days of this journey, my plan was to keep our news a secret for the first trimester. But after 3 1/2 years of trying and the world praying for us, I couldn't keep it a secret. Now if it were up to Grumps the secret would have been kept for as long as possible. I pushed to spread the word.

We need people to continue to pray for this life. I need everyone to believe with us that this baby or babies will grow to completion. So if you pray please pray for us. It doesn't have to be a long prayer. It can be just a few words. "God please keep this baby strong and healthy!"

Thank you for being part of this journey with us!

But of course you and the little bean will be in my prayers! I prayed last night that you and the baby be healthy, and you have an easy pregnancy. God wanted this little miracle to happen for in that :)

Of course, Sunny! I'll say a prayer for you, Grumps and the little bean everyday!

and I agree with peachie: God wanted this to happen....

Thank you girls. I was reminded of that today at church. Great encouragement!!!

I will be delighted to say prayers for you. I am certain that, if I hadn't shared info about our IVF/pregnancy with a group of individuals that I knew would pray for us, I wouldn't be in the wonderful place I am today.

Candy I am glad you stopped by. Thank you for your prayers.

Snaps I know that you constantly are ther for me.

Laura you totally came to my mind when I got my BFP. I remember reading how you had told a few to carry you in prayer.

Prayer is amazing! Thank you!
