Happy Valentines Day!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I thought I would give everyone a brief story of how DH and I came to be "Forever Valentines". DH was born and raised in Arkansas until the third grade at which time his family made the move to Washington State (thank you mom and dad). We ended up having the same third grade teacher and attended the same school together all the way through high school graduation. We also attended the same church and youth group together. Why is this relevant you may ask? Well....we never talked to each other. He had his friends, I had mine. 10 years attending the same school and the same church in a town of just over 2,000 people and a graduating class of just 96 and we never hung out. He went away to college and I stayed home. Three years later he came home for the summer and I got a job working with him at a visitor’s center at Mt. St. Helens (thanks to my friend Kelly who was originally offered the job and turned it down). Three years later he made me the happiest women in the world and became my husband. We have been together for 12 years and married for almost 9. We have suffered two miscarriages and I have been diagnosed with PCOS but we are not letting this get us down. I have known since I was a little girl my purpose in life is to be a wife and mommy.

Side Note:

Today is day one of my Necon BCP sugar pill. Waiting to see if AF arrives soon? Hoping she will and it will be a good sign this is regulating my cycles which will make trying in June/July a success!! Fingers Crossed. I've never been this anxious for HER to arrive. :) To all my SoulCysters and Infertilty girls out there, Keep your chins up. Know you are not alone in your struggle and together we will all get there.

Happy Valentines Day!!!!!

Our lifes will change FOREVER...

I borrowed this from another post I follow.  I thought it was amazing.

Thank you 

At the end of this cycle my life with change forever.

Even if it takes more than one cycle we will have our baby(ies) very soon.

I just know it.

I am setting out on a journey for our child that most woman will never experience.

I've prayed for our children unlike alot woman.

I loved my child long before conception and knew them by name long before most woman.

I will know what my child looked like long before they were a child.

My earliest picture of them will not be their 10 week ultrasound, but

Rather when they were still a little embryo.

What an amazing feeling to know that I fought for our children

when other's told me it wouldn't happen.

What an amazing feeling to know our little babies are pure miracles.

What an amazing feeling to know that I loved my child long before I ever saw them.

I prayed for them long before they exsisted.

And I called them by name long before their birth certificate gave them that name.

What an amazing feeling to know that soon what I have cried for, for so long

Will soon by crying for me.

The ache in my heart will soon be a warm little miracle in my arms.

And even though I wouldn't go through all of this if I had a choice,

I know that my child will be the most loved and prayed for child.

God truly has a plan for our babies.

And I know that it's only a matter of time before they are in our arms.
