Schafer Party of 3

I am so excited to finally announce that Matt and I are expecting!  We have been waiting to tell this news for over 2 years!  The road has been long but it's finally here.

Matt and I struggled the last 2 years to get pregnant.  Last year we thought it was finally going to happen when I found out on Halloween that I was pregnant!  We were so excited but there was a part of me that had a bad feeling.  Well those bad feelings became true on November 30 when we had a miscarriage.  The next few months were like a blur of emotions.  Finally in February we were back on our fertility treatments and all was going great.  After a few months the doctor suggested trying an IUI so we did and the 2nd one we had worked!  I was still worried with everything that happened last time but after an ultrasound at 6 weeks and then again at 10 weeks and hearing that wonderful heartbeat I felt tons better!
I knew exactly how I wanted to announce our pregnancy and the only photographer that would work was Ken Doll.  He did our wedding and is the best!  He is a close family friend so it just made sense.  We did our pictures last week and I was so excited to see them!  He did such a great job.

So, here is to a great 7 more months or so!  We can't wait.
