Plot twist! I’m thrilled to officially announce Michael and I will be welcoming a new addition to the Treasure family this summer. We have been keeping a secret for months, which has felt like years! I found out back in December, two weeks before Christmas, and it was the best present I could have asked for.
Although we had been trying, 11 months to be exact, it didn’t feel real. I stared at the test, saw the faintest of faint lines, text two friends who convinced me I wasn’t seeing things, and tested about 10 more times before getting the fancy, ‘pregnant’ or ‘not pregnant’ test. I kept the secret from my husband for a few days so I could really be sure.
It still doesn’t quite feel real. As I write this, I am 14 weeks pregnant, and I still don’t think I have wrapped my head around actually being pregnant! With Covid, my doctor appointments feel off and don’t help the whole, ‘normal pregnancy experience,’ but regardless, there will be a baby Treasure at the end of this summer!
Although I’m thrilled to announce, my heart goes out to all of my ladies struggling with fertility issues. Our journey was long and stressful, and I know there are lots of people silently struggling. I feel your pain and please, know there is a path for you. I plan to write a blog post dedicated to our fertility journey and all the things I learned along the way!
