About Me

My photo
God has blessed me tremendously with an amazing husband, Doug, and two gorgeous little boys, Gavin and Joey. It has always been a dream of mine to have a large family but God may have other plans. I had a series of 6 consecutive early miscarriages when trying for baby #2. We are currently trying for baby #3 after our 7th miscarriage. I am faithful that God's plan is perfect, even when I am not happy about it. I love comments and meeting new followers so please don't be shy!

A Little of This. A Little of That.

I feel like it has been a while since I posted anything personal.    I have just enough energy for bullet points.   

I have been walking twice a day for about 43 minutes each time.  I am logging my calories and exercise each day.  I am slowly starting to see some changes.  I am super excited about that!  Actually lost 4 pounds.  Not to shabby!

I feel like facebook has been quiet.  That scares me.  Call it my ability to anticipate a wave of pregnancy announcements but I really think it is coming.  It is always calmest before the storm of ultrasound pictures and adorable ways to announce a pregnancy. 

Speaking of facebook... every time I consider posting something as my facebook status I ask myself, "Does anyone outside of my immediate family care?"  Sometimes I wish more people would ask the same thing. 

We switched Joey to a toddler bed.  I really anticipated a week of chaos and redirection.  Turns out, even Joey, my wild child, can handle change like a champ.  We left the bed in the exact same place and with the same bedding and everything.  The only thing we changed was the front of the crib is a guardrail.  It is like nothing changed at all! 

I have only taken my morning temp about 50% of the time.  It is kind of nice to not be as focused on the TTC thing.  But... with that said... Last month I found a really good deal on the digital OPKs and they were actually due to expire soon so... can't let those go to waste.  I started testing on day 10 and was shocked to see a smiley face.  I couldn't help but to test again the next day and got a positive in the morning and in the evening.  Then, on cycle day 12, I got two more positive tests in the morning and evening again.  I couldn't help butput in a call to Dr. Google and he told me that studies have shown a correlation between long LH surges and ovulating multiple eggs.  Wouldn't that be ironic on a cycle off from the clomid? 

I am not sure how I came across this event on facebook but I signed up.  It is a birthday card shower for a woman who has a rare heart condition who is celebrating her 30th birthday, a huge milestone for her.  I have two cards so that Gavin can send one and so can I.  I don't know her, but I know how wonderful she will feel when she gets a bunch of birthday cards.  If you are interested, please join me.  

I am about halfway through my two week wait and I promise to update with any news. 

I hope that you all entered the Share the Blog Love giveaway!  Last week to enter!
