Guess what..

May 8th, 2014 was the day my life changed forever. for a little while I was feeling a little different and under the weather. Just two days before we were leaving for cancun on our honeymoon we decided to take a pregnancy test just to be sure. Even though we both knew it was impossible because we were being safe, we wanted to rule out the option of being pregnant. 3 minutes go by and I have a positive test, so just to be safe I took 3 more.

Yup! Baby Vickery is on its way! Though we are very exited to start this amazing new chapter in our lives, it wasn't exactly in our plans this early. Finding out I was pregnant was terrifying to me. Here I am newly married, with a husband who is trying to go to medical school, and we already have a bun in the oven! I was scared, and I couldn't help but feel like it was my fault. When I told Logan the news I was balling, but he was fine. He wrapped me in his arms, and said, "Lauren this is amazing, and we can do this." Immediately I felt so much better about the situation. I am so blessed to have such a loving husband who can comfort me, and take my fears away.

We sat down and hatched out a plan. First things first; money. How are we going to afford a baby being newly married, and living in a new town? Being young, poor college students, how are we going to provide this wonderful blessing of ours a beautiful life he/she deserves? We decided to apply for finical help, and we got a lot of options that relieved us both. Bottom line is were going to do this, and its going to be ok!

Our first Doctors appointment was May 9th. We had our first sonogram and there wasn't much to see yet but a tiny little sac with a little circle in it. That little circle is our baby! With tears in my eyes I look over at Logan only to see a huge smile on his face. I was over the moon happy. We have a little family! I asked the doctor when this happened, she pulls out this little wheel and does some math for a few moments and looks up at us and says, "your baby was conceived April 19th." Me and Logan instantly shot a look at each other. As you all know April 19th was our exact wedding night. Yes, we made a honeymoon baby!

-Baby V due: January 8th, 2015

P.s we had to announce the news a little sooner than we wanted.. But news was somehow spreading fast! 

(I know I don't know what I am having yet, BUT I have a mother who is just super excited and wanted to be the first person to buy baby stuff. I think its cute for both genders so I was fine!)


  1. I stumbled across your blog and I just have to tell you when we found out I was pregnant I totally freaked out cause it wasn't in our plans to have a baby that early either but I can tell you it is nice to have such a supporting husband (which your husband sounds like he is) and being a mom is the best thing in the world. I was scared out of my mind but you make it work and figure things out as you go. Congratulations to you!

    1. Thank you so much! We're so excited! It's so nice to hear comments that people felt the same way as I did so thank you! And thank you for reading I'm glad you stumbled across my blog! :)

  2. first off, i just found your blog & am loving it. second, we also had an unplanned baby! apparently it happens more often than you think, haha. we had been married 4 months by the time i found out & had him three days after our anniversary. i was just like you, terrified, felt like it was my fault & scared to death. we both were still in school & were not at all planning to have a baby. but it was definitely the best thing to have ever happened to us & motherhood is so much fun. i'm excited for you!

    1. thank you so much! You just made my whole day! I am so glad other women had the same feeling I did! We are so excited to start this new journey! thank you so so much for your kind words! They mean so much:)
