After the Trial of Our Faith...

After almost a year & a half of trying, endless doctor visits, & many tearful nights Anthon & I are thrilled to announce that we're expecting!! The beauty of it all is that I got pregnant right before my specialist was going to put me on Clomid (a fertility drug). I'm almost 3 months (yeah, we kept it secret for 2 months!) which means our baby will be born at the beginning on January... SHUCKS! No tax breaks for 2008!! It hasn't been too hard on me except that I'm EXHAUSTED all the time, & I never feel like eating, but if I don't eat I get the fabulous nausea & vomiting! But seriously, we couldn't be more thrilled & our testimonies of a loving Father in Heaven have really been strengthened over the past year!!

I'm going in for my first ultrasound on Wednesday before we leave for Mexico, so I'll maybe give another update once we get back on the 24th... if I have any fun pictures or news :)

Yeah!!! I couldn't be happier for you if you were my own sister. Keep me in touch. Once we move back over to the east valley, I'll clean your toilets anytime. Mine got pretty dirty from morning sickness, and night sickness, and all the other sicknesses. Love you Ashleigh.
