Big Fat Positive – how we found out the news!

After several months at the beginning of this year of focusing all of our efforts on getting pregnant with no success, our focus switched this summer to my mom and being with her while she was in the hospital. So instead of buying pregnancy tests 6 days early as I was earlier in the year hoping to get a BFP (big fat positive as they call it in the pregnancy world) – I now found myself completely forgetting what day it was from the next because I was so busy coordinating with doctors and spending time with my mom. And then came the worst day of my life, August 11th, when my mom died. This date I will never forget. But I will equally never forget the next day, August 12th, when suddenly I realized it was time to take a pregnancy test for that month. And that’s when we found out about Baby Becher! I truly feel that this baby is a blessing given to us just at the right time. I also feel strongly that God only gives you as much as you can handle- and while we had hoped for a baby in earlier months- it would have been too much for me to handle while also taking care of my mom. Everything happens for a reason, and our pregnancy happened exactly when it was supposed to.
