Just like that another month down and we move onto a year next month
trying to conceive and secondary infertility isn’t for the faint of heart. Trust me sometimes I wonder if I’ll run out of TTC sarcasm and jokes (I won’t)!
So our latest IUI didn’t take.
My husband is out of town.
My kids are being wild
I can’t run away and hide, I know they will find me.
In this moment I had two choices. Cry like a baby and hope my kids would learn how to put themSelves to bed or carry on. So we loaded up the car to buy toys, yes I’m buying toys a few weeks after Christmas
Last month when we got the same news i said, let’s go to the beach! So we booked flights to meet the hubs after a work conference. I have put off booking lots of trips bc I just knew I would be pregnant.
I could sit here and tell you more about all the specifics I’ve learned about trying to conceive, drop facts & data, OR I can tell you how this has actually changed my life.
Over the last year our world has been rocked: trying to conceive, a miscarriage, lots of specialists and lots of googling (against my better judgement)!
I’ve come to realize and trust me I ready knew. That my life is perfect, it really is. I’m ready to live it up!
I’ve been one of the lucky ones for so many years.
I grew up with amazing parents and a brother to look up to.
I met my best friends in 6th grade, that’s over 20 years of friendship.
I found my husband, the only guy who made me fall madly in love and made me never want to look back. My forever best friend.
I have a great career.
This blog has become more than C and I ever imagined!
I had the perfect son, he’s smart, loving, and has zero fear at life.
I was given another boy only 14 months later, he’s got all the spunk a little body can manage!
I was pregnant and that was taken from me in the blink of an eye.
I have given myself the strength to know that this won’t define my life. I have more than the perfect life to make me happy.
Now I still believe we can all want for more….
Sometimes it’s easy to get swept up in what you don’t have when really it’s right in front of you.
In my home there is enough love to last a lifetime. I want to focus on that.
Take a few seconds to step back and appreciate what you do have, maybe you aren’t missing as much as you think.
Back to vacay mode….
