A Surprise Treat

The night before we found out we were pregnant again, we went to Chinese food with Ryan's grandma. I remember thinking during the meal (as I was downing my 4th bowl of sizzling rice soup), "I really have a feeling I am finally pregnant",

At the end of the meal, we opened our fortune cookies. I loved my fortune, especially considering the thoughts that were running through my head that night. I came home and put it on the fridge with a magnet.

Sure enough, the next morning the test was positive.

In the last few months, I've glanced at the fortune a couple times, but soon forgot about it as it slowly became buried under other papers and reminders on our fridge.

After yesterday's ultrasound I went to work. When I came home later that evening, I went to the fridge (as every pregnant woman does), and saw this:

My sweet husband found our fortune, placing it right on top of the picture of our precious miracle.

What a great moment.

Oh my gosh, okay I am so excited for you that you're pregnant! So sorry also for your losses. I haven't had time to read up on everything, but in case you don't remember me, I used to look at your blog a long time ago. Then one day you looked at my blog and I had just had a baby. Finally. Now that little baby of mine is almost 11 months and today I decided to reminisce and look back at old blog posts from when she was just born. Which is where I ran in to your comment and came back to your blog only to find out you are pregnant. What a crazy, yet totally awesome, little cycle that turned out to be. I don't even know your details, but it seems like this is an IVF miracle! Yay for modern medicine. I am so happy for you. My husband and I are praying and hoping for a miracle natural pregnancy but are also willing to do IVF again if needed. Our little girl is worth anything and everything we ever went through. Congratulations a million times over! I'm going to follow your blog again. If that's okay. :)
