In recent past, pregnancy announcements were simple joyful releases of information to friends and family about an impending arrival.
As they should be, all rejoiced in the happy news none the wiser of any potential struggle to arrive at that blissful point in a woman and her partner’s life.
These days, couples are being more transparent about their journey as was the case in one pregnancy announcement we happened upon in social media.
Washington, DC area blogger Jenny Metellus of the Au Bob Prix fashion blog shared a couple of endearing photos on her Instagram announcing her pregnancy with her hubby of five years.
Awwwww congratulations! God is awesome! Repost @aubonprixstyle THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! From the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU! We're so overwhelmed by the texts, calls, DMs, & prayers.

Whilst the Haitian-born mom-to-be is outfitted in a cute green lace Diane Von Furstenberg mini wrap dress and leopard print pumps, she leans in for an Eskimo kiss with her husband above a chalkboard sign that shares the details:
Thanks “After 715+ days of prayer
2 Failed IUIs
1 Round of IVF
1 Fresh Transfer
1 Incomparable God
Baby Pierre Coming Summer 2017
Children are a gift from the Lord. They are a gift from him.” Psalm 127.3″
The obviously Christian couple seemed to have relied on prayer and science to help them arrive at parenthood.
It’s interesting and we are happy to take note of this detail given that to be religious is often thought to be anti-science.
Congrats to them both!
Here’s to a safe and healthy remaining pregnancy, labor and delivery too.
