I am back with another recap of the latest episode of the UPtv reality show Expecting. I am really enjoying watching these couples raw footage of their pregnancy journeys. I have not seen an episode that I didn’t like yet. I I have enjoyed following along. Now lets get to the latest two couples. Shirelle & Ray are a couple who live in Miami, Florida. Shirelle works in the healthcare industry and Ray is a former NFL player. A injury cut his career short. Once his career ended he founded a nonprofit organization. They are recently engaged couple who found out they were expecting after a cruise. They are expecting a little boy. So they are expecting a baby and planning a wedding. Shirelle & Ray are a great couple. They seem to have so much fun together so I am sure their baby boy is going to have a fun upbringing. They really made me laugh when they were talking about the cake tasting for their upcoming wedding. Ray is really supportive to his wife. I think their bond is just amazing. I love seeing how excited Ray is to meet his son. Shirelle makes pregnancy look like a breeze. I just felt excited for them. She has 17 hours of labor but in the end wind up having her baby boy Rayford Jr. by caesarean because her body wasn’t progressing. They had a beautiful wedding after their little bundle of joy entered the world.
Mindy & Bill are a couple with two children named James & Cori who have been married for 11 years. Bill works for a global software company. The couple has suffered four miscarriages and one ectopic pregnancy that ruptured. When Mindy gets a positive pregnancy test you can tell she is happy but absolutely terrified. Although I have never experienced a moment such as this I could totally feel her pain. I couldn’t imagine suffering so many losses. I think I would be afraid to be happy too. Another moment that had me feeling for Mindy was when she started spotting. Now I did experience a little spotting with my daughter. But for her it was different. I could tell she was thinking she could possible be having a miscarriage. I celebrated with her when she went in for an ultrasound and her baby boy was right there as healthy as can be. I was jealous of how fast her labor progressed. Mine took hours and she was ready to go in 45 minutes. I was happy for the family when in the end Mindy gave birth to a baby boy named Jack.
