Marlie's going to be a big sister!!

Where do I begin? I'll start off by saying that we are so blessed. We are still in shock but a really good shock. Most of you know that it took 4 rounds of, not so fun, fertility treatments to get my Marlie! We knew it would most likely be tough to get pregnant again in the future so we had 8 embryos frozen for future use. Well, I guess we won't be needing them this time. :) About 3 weeks ago, I was getting some pains so I made an appointment to see the Dr. I decided to take a pregnancy test just to "rule," it out because I don't have insurance. Well, surely enough 2 lines came up and I was in shock! I couldn't believe it. I decided to put the pregnancy test in a "Congrats" bag as a present for Nick. I told him that I made something for him. Well..... he helped make it too. Ha! I was nervous to see his reaction. We were planning on waiting at least another year before trying again but I guess Heavenly Father had a different plan for us. He always does. Nick was pleasantly surprised. We did the same thing for my parents. They were overjoyed too. I guess my Marlie Marie cured me! :) We think I am about 10 weeks along. It is hard to know exactly how far along I am because of my condition so I am anxiously awaiting my first Dr. apt. and ultrasound in about a week.  I was wondering why I was sooo tired during Marlie's Birthday parties but I thought it was stress. The nauseousness kicked in later and is kicking my butt right now but will hopefully be done real soon.  Marlie and the new baby will be about 20 months apart. I sure they will be the best of buds. We are so blessed!
