We are pregnant! How I told my husband after a year of trying. (Happy Halloween!)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

Close

Indianapolis, IN : This was a last minute decision. I set up my iPhone to capture my husband’s response after trying nearly a year to have a baby. He hugs me for what feels like forever. And then I remembered it was still on record. ((Please post the link of the article and how you found this video, we love to see them!)) *******Click Show More to see where I got my iron on and other fun information*********

I’m taking a more natural approach to dealing with the difficulties and symptoms of pregnancy (morning sickness – I smell peppermint; for difficulty sleeping – I diffuse peace and calm or lavendar/cedar wood; to help stay healthy – I diffuse thieves). I buy all my Essential Oils through: https://www.youngliving.org/jengrae Be sure to consult with your doctor and do your research.

Ordered my Pregnant Skeleton iron on back in March and finally got to use it. Made by Candlyland Studio! http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00BO59BSC/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00BO59BSC&linkCode=am2&tag=youvid00-20&linkId=J4RD75NFMNHHPVRQ

Our dogs are rescue dogs, meaning we adopted them (except for one, he’s a foster dog). We are huge animal supporters and we encourage you to adopt and do not shop for your fur-ever friends and family. If you’re in the Indianapolis area, visit our rescue’s website to find your pet http://www.adoptarpo.org and if you’re out of our area, go to your local shelter. You’d be amazed at the types of animals you can find there.

We also have a side business doing photography in the Indianapolis area. Our availability is limited, but feel free to check out our pictures.

The Huffington Post/Aol and would LOVE to feature your video in a package.
Would that be alright with you?

–uhhh, yeah….

—But… mmmhh…. I don’t get it….

—Don’t you get it?

—Mmmmhhh… nope.

Apparently your husband doesn’t get not-so-subtle hints.

Thanks for the thoughts everyone.

We didn’t intend for this video to spread. It was posted on YouTube so we
wouldn’t lose it. We did post it on reddit.com to /r/BabyBumps for new
mothers to see, but it is surreal how many others took notice. I do see
other’s posts about narcissism, and while it wasn’t our intent to go viral,
I admit that it has been a pleasure to see others who have found a little
joy in it. I don’t enjoy the negative comments that I have read, but I can
put those aside knowing that some are benefiting from the video.

The spread of this video tells me that there are plenty of good people in
this world, to take a video so insignificant, so typical, and help it
spread partly because of it being a special albeit private moment, and that
it consists of an unusually long hug.

It isn’t news, but hopefully it is a welcome break from Ebola and
terrorism. Recent studies say that those who don’t read negative news are
happier. Videos like this may be irrelevant, but they can also be a relief
to many. It is a corny video, but it does seem to resonate. My coworker
said it made him think back to when he had his first child. Others are
either hopeful or understandably upset wanting it to happen to them.

We do have too many dogs, and their barking is just as annoying in real
life, but they make up for it in other ways. One is a foster that is too
scarred to be adoptable, and another is a “foster failure”. We shouldn’t
have adopted her, but she was too good-natured for a puppy. We will do what
is best for the child. We may have to downsize when the child arrives, but
unfortunately that may mean euthanizing the foster dog, which would be a
very difficult decision.

We hadn’t been trying as long as many that are less fortunate; however, we
had talked about children much longer than a year, and a year was just when
we really started losing hope. Leslie tested negative that morning even, at
least that is what she told me when I was leaving for work. That is why I
was skeptical that it could be true, and partly why it took an silly amount
of time to “get it”. I hope others get their moment of good news they
deserve as well.

It is bewildering to watch this video spread, but it is also uplifting to
see many people positively affected by it, if it only means bringing a
smile to a face for a brief moment.

NaturallyThriftyMom says:

Congratulations you two!

Dana Sims says:

This really made my morning! In a world and culture that constantly
bombards us with negative images and messages, this video captures the
beautiful simplicity of life. Not over-the-top or verbose just being a
happy young couple. Please allow me to also offer another unsolicited
comment… I LOVE that this is being celebrated between a husband and
wife. I’m no ultra conservative bible thumper (Lord knows I have no space
to do that) but as a woman of faith and mother of 3 children, marriage
matters. Thanks for sharing :-)

A Broke Girls Life says:

You should start vlogging. I would watch. Congratulations!!! 

lili land says:

bless your family <3

mocajojo831 says:

We’ve been trying for years! I envy you, but I’m happy for you! We have
three adopted cats. (We were the foster parents for them, but we had to
keep them due to their FIV condition.) Anyway, I found your video through
one of the Japanese website. Yep, you’re famous!

UltraChuken says:

This video also has been introduced in Japan, so I think that many Japanese
have thanked you to share the moment of your happiness. I thank you, too.

Julia Aguilar says:

Congratulations! A child is such a blessing. I just turned 40 a few days
ago & i can’t have children I like to watch these types of videos to see
the joyous emotions a child brings to the mommy and daddy. I’ll never be a
mother but I love my “fur baby” who I call “son” congrats again and many
blessings!! Keep us updated!
