We have been Pregnant 4 times! I loved each announcement!!
1. Jeremy Noah Martens
Due: June 2, 2010 (our anniversary!)
Born: April 23, 2010
Husband: I woke up early before he went to work to take a test. POSITIVE! When I went ot twake him up I said, "We are pregnant!" We had only been trying for 2 weeks! He said, "No way. It's way too soon." I showed him the test. "Well look at there, as little positive sign!"
Family: We had the family over for a "Halloween party." They had no idea what the real reason was! WE played this song:
Birth Story here.
2. Capri Renee Martens
Due: June 2, 2012 (our anniversary!)
Born: May 17, 2012
Husband: We met at church for dinner before a class we were taking. I offered to pray before we ate. At the end I added, "Thank you Jesus for our new little baby."
Family: We had the family over for Thanksgiving (as always, this was not out of the ordinary). I have this picture as the centerpiece on each table:
Birth story Here.
3. Baby #3
We lost baby #3 in a miscarriage.
But I still loved the way we announced him/her!
Due: February 14, 2014
Went to Heaven: June 22, 2013
Husband: I was so surprised I brought the test out immediately and showed him!
Family: There were actually a few ways we announced this baby!
- On Father's Day I gave our dads a card like this:
- I met my Bestie for lunch and gave her a puzzle to put together:
|"Time to buy a minivan, we're adding another to our clan"|
|She was so excited!|
- Bobby's sister got married the weekend of Father's Day. We didn't want ot tell the fmaily before the wedding because that was her day. But also didn't want her to find out last! So I gave her a bag to open in their hotel room. It hada bottle of water in it it. The note said, "We had to replace the water with some from home because there is something in the water at our house! Drink it up so our babies can have birthdays together!" I wish I had taken a picture of it!
- We posted this picture on Facebook and tagged the family out of state:
|The caption read:|
"The six of us."
4. Baby #4
We don't know the gender yet. I am 15 weeks.
Due: April 24, 2014
Husband: You know the Hump Day video? Here it is:
We made our own version of it before B came home from work! Jeremy loved it! So did Daddy!
Baby #3 didn't get to have a close birthday with his/her cousin but Baby #4 does! We are 6 weeks apart:
