Bitter, Much?

So I went to the grocery store with Branden and was walking around and I see this couple and the woman was pregnant. I looked at him and rolled my eyes! I am such a brat!

A somber day.

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 […]

Jack Johnson was…

AMAZING!!! I can not even express how amazing it was.
We drove to Tampa Wednesday and got there around 5 or so, had dinner with Mags and then went and got ready in our hotel and met up with Maggie’s friend.  Then we headed to see THE JACK JOHNSON. That is what I kept calling him.
After about a crazy amount of time making U-turns trying to avoid the insane traffic, $20 VIP parking, $25 on two beers, $20 to upgrade seats due to wet grass and butts we were ready to see Jack freaking Johnson.  I literally almost peed my pants I was so excited when he came out.  I had so much fun just dancing and singing along to the most amazing singer in the world.
He also sang Angel! For those who don’t know, that is the song I walked down the aisle to at our wedding.  The last song he sang was Better Together and Maggie and I always joke that is our song. They did an amazing job because he had all the special guests come out and sing it with him and it was perfect.
That was one of the best experiences of my life, top 10 for sure!
Now onto the TTC front.  I am guessing I am about 5 DPO since I got the +OPK on Sunday. So when do I start to test? I hear that implantation doesn’t even happen until 7DPO but I am already having some “symptoms” which most who are TTC know isn’t abnormal since your body has these symptoms before AF as well. My boobs are basically the main thing bothering me. That was what bothered me a lot when I got pregnant and had the miscarriage so now I am always focusing on that symptom since it was really strong. I never really felt sick, which I think is because I never got past 8 weeks.
I want to test like now but I know I will just get a BFN. The thing that sucks is if I do get AF or a for sure BFN then I am on to the next month and if this next cycle is more then 2 months long too, I am going to go nuts!

Tomorrow, my life will be complete!

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 […]

Tick Tock…

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 […]

About


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.

Infertility…

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!
