Today was the funeral of my friend Jaime’s grandfather Michael Carerra. My friend Vicky also lost her grandma today and my friend Maggie also lost a friend today. Earlier in the week my old manager passed away and it was very shocking. I am hoping this is the end of all this loss.
Ok maybe not complete but it will be close.
Tomorrow I am seeing my all time favorite musician, JACK FREAKIN’ JOHNSON! I mean I have never felt this obsessed with a singer since I was 12 years old and cried myself to sleep while holding a poster of Taylor Hansen while listening to MmmBop!
What…that’s normal, right?
I feel like this whole 2 week wait situation is going to feel like forever. It is what…day one? Yeah so basically I need to wait at least 10 days just to test but I should probably wait the full two weeks…yeah right!
On a not TTC note, today was the first day of classes. So far my classes seem like cake. First class is Psych. of Human Development and my professor focuses on babies and young children, score! The second class is Psych. of Reading with Keating who I have had 2 other times and lets just say this class can be passed by a middle schooler. He basically just gives us questions and we have to give our opinion on it. Third class is the lab to Psych. of Human Development and we get 200 points just for showing up, participating and completing some online thing. The class total is 500 points. Yeah, like I said a. piece. of. cake!

Why I blog..
I started this blog back in 2010 because my husband and I were TTC (trying to conceive) our first child. I had read many other blogs of women who had gone through similar fertility issues and decided to chronicle our journey. It took us 14 months to get pregnant with our beautiful son and it has been the most amazing experience. I found that blogging through my pregnancy and now through my son’s life I am able to have a record of all the things I experienced and went through. It has been amazing to look back and see how much I have changed from a girl who desperately wanted a child to a Mom with the best job and life anyone could ask for. If you are interested in working with me through my blog please check out my PR Page or email me.
About Our Family…
My husband and I met while looking for roommates in 2006. I didn’t know he was a guy by his ad so we decided we didn’t want guys as roommates and Branden and I began dating a few months later. We got engaged 10 months after becoming an official couple and married a year and a half later on August 1, 2009. We knew we wanted to have a baby and decided to try for a baby right away. Little did we know that it would take us over a year to get pregnant with our son. Adonis Scott Eugene was born on July 16, 2011 at 11:17 am and was 6 lbs 4 ozs and 19inches long. He is one of the happiest, funniest babies I have ever been around and I feel we are truly blessed to have such an easy going baby.
Branden and I both loved children and knew right from the start we wanted to have a baby. Having a previous pregnancy end in miscarriage made getting pregnant again somewhat scary but we knew it was what we wanted. To our surprise it was not happening right away and decided once we had been trying for a year it was time for me to go in and get blood work done. My doctor found that I had PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). Surprisingly after we got a diagnosis and right before starting fertility medications we got pregnant with our son!
