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!

8 Weeks

Yes.  I made it to 8 weeks!  8 weeks and 3 days to be exact!  I don't get a scan this week so I have to be patient and wait until next week to peek at the baby.  I am relishing in the fact that I am starting to be more consistently nauseated.  While many women hope to get through pregnancy without morning sickness, I long for it.  It isn't pleasant but it as a wonderful reminder that something is happening in there.

I am still really tired.  Thankfully Joey has decided that naps aren't so bad anymore and has actually made a habit of asking to take a nap after lunch!  Whoohoo for me!  Gavin is content playing a JumpStart game on the computer and I get cozy on the couch.  The last two days I have managed to nap for 2 hours!  I realize that I won't win any mother of the year awards, but I don't know how I would get through my day without some rest. 

I am starting to actually embrace the idea that this baby will most likely be joining us in the Fall.  I have let my mind drift to maternity clothes and deciding on if we want to learn the gender of this baby in 10 weeks or so. 

My heart aches for the moms who are still waiting for their baby.  I know rationally that the whole community of infertile and loss moms can't all get pregnant at the same time and travel this road together, but if there was a way to do it, I would.  I love the fact that I am finally able to blog about something that doesn't involve my frustration with my RE, another failed cycle, another frustrating month.  I hate that others are. 

I don't want to alienate readers who are still fighting for their take home baby.  I respect the fact that I might lose some of you, but please know that I am praying for all of you.  I am always going to be around for emails, venting, sharing, friendship, advice, and whatever else you need.  There is a decent chance that more of my posts will be about baby, pregnancy, and maybe some products for pregnancy.  If anyone is looking for support while they are trying to conceive, we have a growing number of ladies who are participating in the secret facebook groups for ttccommunity.  We also have a group for those who are expecting, a group for those dealing with loss(es), a group for those who are avoiding, and many many others.  Stop by to see if there is a group that fits for you. 

I am hoping to whip up a post soon about the flu shot and pregnancy so be on the look out for that!  It is shaping up to be a real eye opener!  Until that post or next week...
