Pregnant after IF

It's a...

We had our gender reveal celebration yesterday and opened up our big Christmas box to find these...

image

Things didn't go exactly as planned as the balloons didn't stay inflated and H had to "dump" them out to show everyone what was inside.  It was so very "us" that something went wrong and I didn't get my perfect picture!  It was so great to have our family and friends there with us and my BFF and MOH was on FaceTime to see it all. 

However, we are thrilled about our little boy and looking forward to seeing him again on Saturday at our follow up ultrasound.  We will have the tech show us "the goods" then to confirm, but as mama predicted, we are having a little boy!

Married July 2011; TTC since April 2011; DX: MFI
IVF #1 in August 2012: BFP!
L was born on May 5, 2013, 8lb. 6oz.
