Our Big Valentine’s Day Surprise: We’re Expecting a Baby!!
Written by Nicole | February 14, 2013
I am so incredibly happy to finally announce that Eric and I are expecting a baby–and it’s officially 3 months and 3 weeks old. We are so incredibly overjoyed! We wanted to wait to share the news once the baby reached this critical medical milestone. They say after the 3rd month of pregnancy the risk of having a miscarriage or a medical problem is significantly reduced! We have been picking out names, and on Feb. 20 (only 6 days away!) we find out if it’s a boy or a girl. 🙂
Now, I am always honest with you, and I don’t want to hide anything from you girls. That is why I am telling you something very personal: Because of certain medications I must take for my health, carrying a fetus would be dangerous for me and for the baby. Don’t worry girls, my medical issues are not life threatening.
My husband and I prayed over this, and decided that for safety of me and the baby, someone else would need to carry the fetus. We interviewed many women and found a wonderful and trustworthy gestational surrogate to carry our genetic baby.
This was such a big decision for us. And obviously it’s a big decision for me to be so frank and open with you girls. But I’m telling you because I love you so much.
Now I need your help: Please pray for the baby’s health! What do you predict we’ll have–a boy or a girl?
I am SO excited to read all your comments!
