The Wake-Up Call Show: I’m Pregnant, Dear One! (Celebration Video)

Dear One,

When I first went “public” about my deepest desire, to have another baby, it was really scary for me. I revealed it all in my When Your Happiness Is Being Held Hostage video in November of 2012. It was a big moment, as I knew that my wish for another baby might not come true, and then you’d know the truth about my heartache. But I felt so much better after being so vulnerable because of your incredible support and love. You just blew me away!

It was a year and a half of struggle to get knocked up. It felt like a “funeral every 28 days” as a dear friend put it. I kept showing up and my life was hijacked by ovulation kits, charting, acupuncture appointments, disappointment and spiritual fertility coaching from my incredible coach, Elisabeth Manning. I had difficult conversations with my husband, as we endlessly had to explain to our daughter, Annabella, why she didn’t have a baby brother or sister yet and how we just couldn’t guarantee that it would happen. (Hard stuff to fathom for a just turned 6 year old who believes in fairies and Santa Claus.)

So it is with the utmost joy, glee and a tummy full of butterflies I say to you, my darling, that YES this baby has landed! It felt right to wait until today, the official end of the first trimester (and hopefully the end of the nausea and headaches!), so forgive the Wake-Up Call Wednesday coming to you on a Friday. LOL.

Here is the celebration video featuring my hubbie, Rob, that I wasn’t sure I’d ever have the opportunity to make (and yes we have a dance party!):


Dear One, I am sending a vision of your dreams coming true. I want you to get what you want and celebrate it. I’d love to hear from you in the comments about what you are CELEBRATING in your life right now!

P.P.P.S. Thank you for holding the vision of this baby with me. I’ve felt so loved and supported on this journey by you. Thank you, thank you, thank you…to the moon and back.

      Congratulations Amy– to a beautiful person who SHINES her light empowering and loving from her big heart for so many young women supporting and daring them to dream and reach their dreams. I have a heart full of joy and happiness for you and your family. Thank you for the many times you’ve inspired me on my journey.
      I am now trying to create my own tutoring center starting by offering my own tutoring services and also am working on my first published book. It has taken awhile for me to learn to stand up, stand out, and find my voice and purpose to shine my light…I cannot wait to create my impact and see how my purpose and impact will touch lives and change the world. I will be focusing on bringing my purpose and vision or DREAM alive by cultivating my character first and then processes simultaneously for change. It may be the kind of change that is unique and on my own terms, but it may be just the kind of change needed.

    OMG – You guys made me laugh and cry so hard… “Feed the chickens!” Your hubby is a scream. This was soooo sweet and so much fun and totally showed how adorable you guys are. What a LUCKY child he/she is going to be, and what a FUN, LOVING home it’s coming into. I’m SO thrilled for you… people like you should have TEN children. HUGS!!!

    WooHoo Amy and Rob!!!!! I couldn’t be happier for you and your beautiful little daughter.

    I am celebration the launch of my new business (the Self-Love Diet) within the next couple of weeks. This is a long-time dream (12 years! to be exact) coming to fruition. I am so excited about being able to support women in nourishing themselves with Self-Love so that they can live happily ever after (like I am!).

    I Love that you dance to Cool and The Gang–because I, too, have been doing the happy-dance to Celebration for many years. Obviously, we’re kindred spirits. 🙂

    Sending you baby baskets of Love,
    ~ Sue

    To someone who inspires & radiates so much, I can’t tell you how it warms my heart that your deepest wish has come true! Thank you for all you are & do–so often your posts & articles are exactly what I need to hear–thank you!

  18. SeekingPlumb September 6, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    , I’m so, so happy for you!!! You & your hubby are just too funny & so cute!!! I truly hope that when I find MY prince, partner in crime, lover, & best friend (Not necessarily in that particular order. They just popped out that way. LOL!!) that we’ll be as free and comfortable with each other, & have as much fun just being free, fun & silly, together. That was just beautiful!! My 11.5 year marriage to my ex had NOTHING like that. I have great hopes for my future!!! 😀

    I’m celebrating the fact that this past month, I finally worked up the nerve to do a few things. I decided that I was no longer going to allow a “friend” to treat me like a 2nd class citizen, I deserve better – I’m supposedly a “FRIEND!!” I was going to set boundaries in how she could communicate with me, & I decided to terminate this one sided work-uh-friendship. Meaning, it required a lot of work to maintain that relationship, if you even wanted to call it a “friendship.” It was more work than a relationship/friendship. I was getting more pain, anguish, & hurt out of it than anything.

    Her response was one claiming innocence, & she completely ignored every hurt I raised. (She did respect the one boundary I efined, thankfully.) However, she can do no wrong. As much as I wanted her to get what I was trying to say, to get what my email was saying, I finally realized there’s no point in proving any one of my hurts/points/issues with her. Let her believe what she will. I’m finally free of her. I no longer wait in fear of whether she’s going to call, text, or message online, wondering what she will say & how I will respond.

    My great hurt finally turned to anger!! I mean how could someone make strong, dire pronouncements about my mental state, worry that I might be in a life or death situation, then she up & disappears from my life for 6.5 months, entirely. Bah!!! Sooooooo, frustrating!!!! 😛 Pbbbbttt!!!!!!

    So, I took the initiative.

    It was cathartic. It was freeing. It was revealing about myself. It was ultimately revealing about her & the overall picture & temperature of our relationship; from what I thought it was, to what SHE thought it was, to the truly awful state of what it REALLY WAS.

    I absolutely love what happens, when you learn to be assertive (But very clearly, not aggressive.). What a beautiful process & amazing a landing pad!!! 😀 I also love learning about boundaries. The freedom you GAIN by SETTING & MAINTAINING them. I absolutely love to set & firmly hold boundaries. It’s rewarding, revitalizing, and my absolute most favourite of all – it’s EMPOWERING!!! I feel like a new woman each time!! It’s… amazing!!! I almost go out of my way looking for new opportunities to find, determine, & set boundaries. It’s not usually very easy, but it’s so cool when It DOES happen!!

    LOLOLOL I was just thinking. Do you remember the Easy button, it was from Staples, I believe? If only finding the perfect boundary to delineate & manage WAS that easy!!!!!!!!! It’s just so awesome!!!! I want to find more!!! I want billions more, which sounds so completely couner-intuitive!!! It’s like how in the world does that even make any sense in the world!!!

    Anyway, excellent month for us all!!! Yay, let’s get our groove on!!!

  19. SeekingPlumb September 6, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    Pbbbbttt!!! I copy & pasted my comment from above to post it here below, & it cut off the beginning. (I didn’t want to log in using Facebook.) Blah, blah, blah-di-blah. I’m getting to the point.

    CONGRATS!!!! I’m so happy for you both, for the whole family!!! I wish you all the very best!!!! I hope you get a very healthy little bambino of the gender(s) of your hearts’ desire!!!

    All my best,

  20. Shantini September 6, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Dearest Darling Amy,

    You have no idea how much you have helped me get through the “stuff” that’s been holding me back for years, with your weekly emails and through Inner Mean Girl Reform School, Visionary Ignition Switch and Find Your Calling. It’s been life changing and I’m filled with joy and oh so grateful that you have your heart’s desire – this beautiful baby. You light the way for so many of us and I’m so so happy that a light – brighter than the sun – is shining in your life right now! Thank you for everything Amy and may your wishes and dreams continue to come true 🙂

  23. Linda September 9, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Oh, Ames! Your video made me cry. What a beautiful message; what fun you two are. Your children are so blessed to have you as parents, and so are we to have you as inspiration. Thanks for the reminder to celebrate. I’m celebrating an amazing relationship with my man and my son, and feeling so blessed every day in midlife! LOVE you!!! xxoo

  24. Julie September 11, 2013 at 2:52 am

    Congratulations Amy, I’m so happy for you.
    I know the the heart ache of wanting to be pregnant & not being. But eventually everything comes doesn’t it. I have now 3 adult children & 3 beautiful grandchildren, my daughter Linda had her own daughter 10 weeks ago today but not before a miscarriage & another year of trying.
    Life has so many twists & turns, when we start out we have no idea of what will be be only what we want to be, what we hope, dream, fantasize will be – it very rarely matches the reality.
