Soldier Opens Door To Wife's Pregnancy Reveal After 6 Years Of Trying

A U.S. Army sergeant couldn’t believe his eyes when he walked through his front door to discover his wife holding a sign revealing she is pregnant after six years of trying. Alan Pipkin and wife Haley, from Savannah, Georgia, had spent more than half a decade trying for a baby, but to no avail. According to Haley, complications included a thyroid issue for Haley; five unsuccessful rounds of IUI; COVID delaying procedures; and Alan having to have an operation to help improve their chances. When those steps still failed to work, a doctor recommended a procedure to Haley called "super ovulation," which required 12 shots in the stomach over 12 days, as well as two inter-muscular shots. The shots in the stomach were to help develop eggs, Haley said, and the two inter-muscular shots were to insure ovulation. When the couple took their next pregnancy test, though, the results were negative – a reading that crushed Haley and brought her to tears. Two days later she planned to speak to her doctor about blood work, only to discover she was, in fact, pregnant. Having received the results, Haley took another at-home pregnancy test so that it read positive, and swiftly made a sign reading "You are going to be a Daddy” for the February 13 reveal with Alan.
