It’s been a LONG journey to get this little guy here. If you have followed my story you know that getting pregnant has never been easy for us. It takes a lot of time and probably some luck. We were able to get pregnant a little less then two years after my middle child was born. Unfortunately, that pregnancy ended in a very traumatic 2nd trimester miscarriage at 17 weeks. After the miscarriage we went on to see a fertility specialist (I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Jarrett at Indiana Fertility Institute) who helped us get pregnant again and helped us avoid a miscarriage. The protocol after getting pregnant included daily injections of a blood thinner throughout my pregnancy. Giving myself a daily shot in the stomach was not something I ever though I could or would have to do. But when you want something enough you can do anything. I wanted to complete my family and this little guy was worth EVERY.SINGLE.SHOT.
I’m so excited that Luka is here and I’m almost as excited that I’ll never have to be pregnant again – ha! While my family is complete I’ll forever be an advocate and supporter for those dealing with infertility and miscarriage. If you (whoever you are) ever want to talk I can always make time for lunch.
Little Luka was born on 5/25/22. He is tall and skinny (maybe my husband will get his basketball player after all) and as cute as can be. Luka means “to light” or “the light” and so his first and middle name put together (Luka Lane) means “to light the path/way”. I love that and I just love him to pieces. So far this little guy has been super easy going (being a 3rd child that might just be out of necessity) and he is full of smiles.
I hope you enjoyed learning a little about baby Luka! If you are expecting a little one and are looking for an Indianapolis newborn photographer don’t hesitate to reach out. I would love to meet your new little one and get your due date on my calendar. I’ll be back from maternity leave in early Sept. I’m taking due dates from Sept 1st or later.
