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!

I have big plans for 2013.  Huge. 

First of all, I am not going to be infertile this year.  I spent all of 2011 and 2012 hanging out in the Land of IF, and frankly, it just isn't the place for me this year.  I have my bags packed.  Now all I need to do is get pregnant.

It is a well-documented fact that guys will not ask for directions. This is a biological thing. This is why it takes several million sperm cells... to locate a female egg, despite the fact that the egg is, relative to them, the size of Wisconsin.

Second, I have proven that I can lose weight if I try.  I have also proven that eating mass amounts of junk food and not tracking my food intake leads to gaining weight.  I am ready to get back on my treadmill and start sweating again.  I am going to go back to making good choices and cooking healthy meals for my family.

Inside some of us is a thin person struggling to get out, but they can usually be sedated with a few pieces of chocolate cake.  ~Author Unknown

Third, I am going to kick the habit.  No more pee sticks for me.  I am going to ... eh.  Who am I kidding.  I will not.

Habit, if not resisted, soon becomes necessity.  ~St. Augustine

Forth, I am going to say goodbye to my jealousy.  No more "oh woe is me" when I see a baby picture or pregnancy announcement.  I am going to remind myself that my time will also come.  

Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.

Lastly, I am going to focus more of my time and energy on prayer and developing a better relationship with God. 

I had struggled so hard and so long that I had simply exhausted myself, only to find that God had all the time in the world to wait for me to allow Him to free me.
