I found out on February 24th that my daughter is expecting our first grandchild. However, it was a few weeks before we were allowed to share the news with everyone. This was because she wanted to go wait until after her first visit with the doctor before making it official, which I can understand. Though she is excited, I don't think it will really kick in until she starts to show and after the doctor tells her what the sex is.
She and her husband had been trying for quite a while to have a baby, and eventually they went to be checked out as to why it was taking so long. Since our son-in-law already had 2 children from a previous relationship, they felt like it had something to do with her. It was found out that she had the beginning stages of endometriosis, and a procedure (something to do with burning the spots off the lining of her womb) was done by her ob-gyn doctor a few days later, which she was told has a good ratio of patients who become pregnant within 6 months after having it done. Suffice it to say, less than a month later my daughter's dreams came true.
I can so empathize with my daughter in her attempts to have a child as my husband and I went through a lot of the same procedures she has while trying to conceive our first child. In our situation my progesterone level was too low.
My hubby and I are thrilled to be grandparents and are looking forward to spoiling him or her. The Lord has surely blessed both our daughter and son-in-law and us. He is Good.
