Nice TTCing/IF Story

So I wanted to post this in a separate thread because I thought you would all be as inspired by it as I . . .
So I have this student teaching intern observing me on Fridays--she is 22, seems like a really nice girl. I got an Email from her this week telling me that she just found out she is pregnant, so she would have to leave early one day for an appt. So I congratulated her and sort of assumed it was a "surprise" for her and her husband.
Then on Friday she came in, and I congratulated her again and I was like: "So were you guys trying or it was just a surprise?" and she goes on to tell me that ACTUALLY, they had been trying for like two years, had unexplained IF, had gone through a ton of IF treatments including one (failed) cycle of IVF, and that they were gearing up for their next IVF cycle next month, and unexpectedly, and with no intervention (except acupuncture) found herself pregnant this month.
When I heard this story I was so touched, and it reminded me, once again, that babies come on their own timeline. It gave me hope for myself, and for all of us . . . so I wanted to share it. Please keep her in your thoughts that her bean is nice and sticky.
