About a year ago I opened up about several struggles Jeffery and I were dealing with. One being infertility.
It was hard knowing we could not provide Dill and ourselves with another baby. We knew it would be difficult trying for another child since we struggled getting pregnant with Dillon.
But we had no idea that the struggles and the stresses would be this hard.
We prayed and we never gave up hope. One day I felt the Lord calling me to be content with what we have. Having Dillon was such a blessing and it seems as if God was telling us to be ok with our sweet little family of three. So I let go and finally came to a peace.
So much of a peace that I decided to do what every organized mom does was to get rid of all of Dill’s baby items, plan a trip to New York, book clients and stay busy with Centsibly Southern Chic.
You name it I was completely taking my mind off of the reality of not having another child. And at the same time, praising God for all the open doors.
I guess you could say I just let go and let God in.
I’m here to tell you, and I’m just as shocked as everyone else is, that I am pregnant!
We are thrilled and we know that this is truly all God!
It was so hard, and believe me we have had so much stress in our lives, but God’s timing is clearly the right timing for us.
I’m here to tell you, ladies, who struggle with infertility, we get it. We have cried, dealt with miscarriages, lived scared that something seriously could be wrong with me or Jeffery, not being able to afford going through the fertility process, you name it we went through it.
But, now, we are so grateful that God allowed us to go through all of those emotions so we could rely on him.
I would like to say a big thank you to our families and friends who knew of our struggles. Their continuous love, prayer, and support has made this process so much more exciting and truly gave us peace.
To see everyone just as excited and overwhelmed as we are brings tears to our eyes and joy to our hearts. Let’s just say it’s been priceless! We are so very blessed.
I seem to be a bit more creative with styles and bargains now that this baby is on the way. So stay tuned friends, this will be a fun fashionable ride for all.
And just so you can get a little taste of my creative style check out my pictures below. Both of my outfits are beauty bargains and are pre and post pregnancy transitions.
My outfits were so good I had my family fooled for a few days. They disguised that tummy pretty well. I was able to keep my little secret hidden with my beauty bargain finds. I say that’s a Southern Stylist win!
$40.60 (30% off $58.00)
I can wear this into the fall and after baby is born
Black Maxi Dress
I picked up this dress from Old Navy for only $9.00. I can wear this one into the fall and before and after pregnancy.
My sandals are also from Old Navy. I bought them for the low price of $7.00.
These are perfect to add a fun pop of color to a simple style.
I know being pregnant can seem like you can’t have fun with your style.
Well I am hear to tell you that you can have just as much fun with your style before and after pregnancy. Just play with color and mixing up your prints like I did below.
If you have any prayers please feel free to send them my way.
