No News is Not Good News – Fertility Update

I’ve been really hoping I would be able to share with you guys good news this summer regarding my fertility struggles, but it still just hasn’t happened for us. We thought that the surgery I had in April was the answer to our problems, but it’s been five cycles since surgery with no luck.

I told myself that I was going to enjoy the summer and try not to think about getting pregnant too much, but in all honesty I have not done a very good job with that. It’s literally impossible for me to stop thinking about how badly I want another baby and the cloud of infertility is weighing heavier  than ever.

Our official diagnosis is “unexplained secondary infertility” AKA “we have no clue why you can’t get pregnant again.” Read More

Costco Gift Bag Giveaway – $190 Value!

Update: Congrats to MacKenzie who was the lucky random winner of the giveaway!

Since the weather has gotten warmer, I feel like we’re finally able to experience our neighborhood. Our neighbors are outside, the farmer’s market up the street has started for the summer and we’re venturing out to experience more of the local businesses.

One of the things I love about living in Perrysburg, OH is that it is a thriving, family-oriented community that seems to be growing and developing like crazy. A new development that we are especially excited about is the new Costco going in.

We personally have not been Costco members before, but after hearing about all the natural and Read More

Mother’s Day 2015

I had a lovely Mother’s Day this year. It started the night before when I was rocking Lila before bed. She said “Daddy and I drew you a picture! It’s for you!” I asked her if it was for Mother’s Day and she said “Yes!” before settling back down.

The moment I woke up, my sweet husband handed me a decaf, breve, latte that he had gotten up early to run out to get. We laid in bed sipping our coffees just enjoying a slow morning. This a rare treat as Luke is an early riser who abhors just “laying” when there are things to get done!

Then Lila woke up and bounded into our room. With a little prompt from her dad, she said “Happy Muders Day, mommy” and gave me a big kiss along with the picture she drew me. We spent Read More

Update on Our Journey

I’ve been feeling guilty about not blogging here as much lately. I have had so many great things going on in my life that I mean to share here, but to be honest I’ve felt a little weighed down by our fertility journey.

It’s not that I am not enjoying all the good, like trips to Florida, planting a garden with Lila and celebrating 5 years being married to Luke, but it’s just that there feels like a heaviness in my heart that I carry. It’s hard for me to write from a happy, cheerful perspective and I also don’t want to get mired down either.

So I’ve been keeping to myself a bit and writing when I feel especially inspired. I hope you understand and stick around.

I will share a little update on our journey for those Read More
