SHARING THE NEWS WITH OUR FRIENDS + FAMILY
This is quite possibly the most amazing things in the whole journey–finally getting to share the news with our friends and family. We went through a lot from the moment we found out we were pregnant to now, so it was easy keeping it a secret until we felt better about it all.
Tim and I felt like a lot of the surprise factor was removed from our whole journey so we didn’t tell a single soul we were doing the transfer. Only one follower (who was in the recovery bed next to me) and one nurse I personally knew, knew we were doing it. Other wise it was our dirty little secret. We didn’t expect it to work, and were completely caught off guard with everything that followed. I’ll need to make a video in order to explain it all because it was really hard.
In happier news, we are so grateful for the support and love we have received and I can’t wait for you all to join us on our journey. I know so many people say they wouldn’t trade their journey for the world, but ours was really hard. It hurt more than any combination of words can ever explain and I’m not sure if I would change things if I could. But looking back on it all, it sure makes every single moment that much more special and I am forever grateful. We both are forever grateful.
We are having our Gender Reveal this Sunday so make sure to follow us on snapchat (elenimcmullin) because that is probably where we will be spilling the beans! We have no idea yet and will find out with everyone else. The envelope is sitting right next to me though…. I think it’s a BOY and so does every single other human we know but we honestly have zero preference. I think after you battle infertility you’re pretty thrilled to be blessed with a healthy little bambino. We can’t wait to find out though and share it with all of you!
I love you guys so much and wish I could physically write every single one of you back but please know we have read everything, watched every video and are seriously SO beyond grateful.
