Drum Roll Please..

Ok sooo here we go.....

Drum roll please.....

In lieu of Christmas cards this year, we decided to make a New Year's Update to keep everyone in the loop on our fertility journey. Here it is, folks! 


Omg I don't even know what to write right now (SHOCKING for me!!). We are sooooo overjoyed and filled with all kinds of crazy happiness, I feel like I'm dreaming. It doesn't seem real yet.

Some quick stats and then I will update more and fill in the blanks later this week, I promise.

This was our 2nd IVF cycle. We went back to the Dr. in late October and had an embryo transfer in early November. We are currently 3 months pregnant and had our 12 week scan today (even though I will be 13 weeks on Wednesday). Last time we saw Baby Ricci was at 8 weeks and he/she looked like a jelly bean, so to see a tiny human today was simply amazing! I will post that pic soon too. :) We are on Cloud 9, Over the moon, and just can't believe this is finally happening after what feels like an eternity (4 years is, in a sense, an eternity). I will never forget a single piece of our struggle and I will never take any second of this process for granted. I still pray and will continue to pray for all couples currently trying to conceive and struggling to get their miracle babies soon!! You all deserve it!

Ok, so yea.... We are having a baby. Holy moly. Us. This year... Ahhh!!!!

It's been a long (but so fun!!) day of announcing to family and friends. I'll be announcing to my kiddos at school tomorrow and sharing with their families tomorrow too. Then throughout the week I'll post more pics from our photoshoot so you can see them up close. Just had to get the news out and get the ball rolling before I go to bed!

Much love always,

Stace & Scott

#AHHHHHH!!! :) :) :) :)
