Feeling Extra Thankful Today

Liz_Maternity -1

Happy Thanksgiving! I have three pies sitting on the counter (tart cherry, milky way chocolate, and cheesecake), my grandma’s homemade rolls rising by the oven, and feeling very thankful this morning for many, many things. One is some wonderful news I have to share: we’re expecting a 3rd child this coming April! Henry and Edie will have a new little sister and we couldn’t be more thrilled! This came as a bit of a surprise after still emotionally recovering from 4 years of secondary infertility trying to get pregnant with Edie. Seven failed fertility treatments, 2 miscarriages, and lots of heartache was the most difficult thing I’ve had to face as a woman (a few posts I wrote about the topic here if you’d like to read more). And, I know so many women that endure much, much more than that trying to grow their families. So, when we thought about (maybe?) leaving it up to odds to have a 3rd, I just couldn’t set my heart on it one way or another. But we are feeling very, very lucky. And at almost 20 weeks it’s starting to really set in: THREE! This is going to be a wonderful challenge we’re excited to tackle. My heart goes out to anyone who has dealt with infertility. I know how painful it can be and I hope and pray you can find some way to grow your family (and keep your sanity in the process!). We certainly feel lucky to be adding a 3rd child to ours.

xoxo, Liz

My friend, the very talented Betty Liu took this image of me a few weeks ago in New Hampshire. My belly is about twice that size now!


Wow! What amazing news – congratulations. Such a wonderful thing to be thankful for! xoxo

Whaouuu I’m so happy for you and your family, I follow your blog since a long time and I read all your articles about infertility and I’m so happy that after such long difficult timed a third baby is coming .

What a great news!!!

Mum of three :-),

Congratulations! It’s very exciting news indeed and it will be a wonderful adventure! I’m very happy for you and so glad to hear this time around came easily.
I was one of the women you quoted in your secondary infertility post on what people should say. I just went back and read my first comment from your first secondary infertility journey post and wow, how things turned around from that comment I wrote. We thought and were told that my pregnancy probably wasn’t viable. I am now sitting here next to my gorgeous little girl who fought hard to be here and who will be two in February!

Congratulations Liz! I read daily but rarely comment, but I am so happy for you and your family.

Wow! What a wonderful surprise! This is such fantastic news for you and your family. xoxo

This is marvellous news! Well done!! Congratulations, I hope you are well.

I was just reading this in the car as we drive to my in-laws. What wonderful news, congratulations to you and your family ???? Happy Thanksgiving!
