J&L Get Through Tough Stuff

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past six months, it’s that having a child creates this constant struggle between the thoughts of “I can’t wait until she…” and “I hope she stays little forever.” Most of the time, those internal battles include things like I can’t wait until she can sit up unassisted, but I hope […]

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you probably already know what happened, but here is the full rundown. Jut and I spent last weekend in Cleveland, and we knew going into it that it could potentially be the weekend we would find out we’re pregnant. Sure enough, I woke up Saturday morning and […]

I meant to post a fertility update prior to yesterday, but time flies when you’re freaking out, and I never got around to it. So here’s the latest scoop. Two days after I posted about having to make the big decision, my doctor (SIL) called me and said we didn’t really have a choice. After she […]

It all started three weeks ago, when I started feeling a lot of unfamiliar pain. This is pain like nothing I’ve ever felt before; a constant uncomfortable-ness, relieved by none of my normal remedies. For days on end, I’ve laid on the couch unable to function, and cried myself through sleepless nights. When I talked to my acupuncturist about it, […]

It’s been a while since I posted about our infertility journey, and figured it was time to give you an update. I read through my old posts, and realized that a lot of things changed over the last six months, and we didn’t do all the things we said we were going to do back […]

All along we knew there was something wrong with me. You can’t get pregnant if you don’t ovulate, and well, I don’t. Or at least I haven’t. And so we started down the path of treating it as if I have PCOS (though I have only one mild symptom), taking medicine to force menstrual cycles […]

Last time I blogged about our fertility problems I had just started my first round of Provera and Clomid, and now I’m back to let you know how things have progressed. (Spoiler alert: they haven’t.) The Provera did what it was supposed to do, so that was the first step in the right direction. After […]

As I’ve said before, this blog is my way of recording our story, so we can always remember where we started and how far we’ve come. Of course, that sometimes means getting through tough stuff, and right now, we’re working our way through one of the most difficult challenges we may ever have to face. […]

in J&L Get Through Tough Stuff

Tonight is going to be a short one, cuz I have more important things to do than blog. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may have read that Justin almost got in a pretty bad accident, not once, but TWICE today. Both times he was turning, and almost got t-boned on the […]

I’m going to talk about something that I normally wouldn’t put out there. Something that’s been really tough. If you’re new here, you may not know that my fiance’s mom passed away in September. You also may not know that we’re planning to be married in June. And, even if you know both of those […]
