Where Have I Been...We are Getting A Little Personal Up In Here!

Where in the world have I been?

I knowI know.

I looked back the other day and I realized that I haven’t posted  on here since December – Holy Guacamole!

I promise you I have a good reason.  After way longer than planned and after more challenges than expected we are expecting baby #2!!

I usually don’t get too personal on here, but in a nutshell here’s what’s been going on with me for the last few years 

In the spring of 2009  the HUBS and I decided we wanted to have a baby and BOOM – It happened – FAST!

So fast forward to the summer when Addison was 2 ½ (2012) and we were ready again we thought it would be just as easy.  Right??  Wrong? 

After many doctor’s appointments and tests they realized that we were in that group of “unknowns”.  They have NO idea why were were having so much trouble, nor can they tell us why the first baby was SO easy!

We tried Clomid for 5 cycles – nothing.  Then we were told injectibles with IUI was the next step.  That took a bit for us to swallow, so we took a break – a long one- from March 2014 until this fall when we gave the shots a try.  I was lucky.  I did not have the moodiness that some women get and overall it was an easy experience given what we were doing.  The first two cycles were unsuccessful and we began the final cycle using new drugs.  However, we were told that if this cycle didn’t work the only other option would be IVF.  Honestly, we weren’t ready for that, so I thought of this cycle as our last, spent some time praying and talking to my Uncle John in heaven and low and behold two days before Christmas we got the BEST Christmas present ever!

We are over the moon happy and I have been AMAZINGLY sick.  I forgot how miserable the first chunk is!  I’m 16 ½ weeks now and finally coming out of the fog!  Energy is coming back and we are looking forward to finding out if Addison will have a baby brother or sister!

Thanks for putting up with my absence.  I am hoping you understand!  I will still be posting – hopefully more often now that I am feeling better.  I have lots of new products swarming in my mind, so stay tuned the best is yet to come
