Monday Rambling

Happy Monday, Pretties. I haven’t shown up around these parts in about a week or so…so I figured a random list of what’s been happenin’ would be ok!

  • School started today. I haven’t had a first day of school in 8 years. wowzas…I feel old. I have to admit, I LOVE seeing all of my friends little babes in their new school clothes ready to start the year. My nephew also started his first day of “school” today. I wouldn’t be a very good aunt if I didn’t show how freaking adorable he is in his outfit. He’s such a stud.

  • We went to the lake this weekend for some much needed rest and relaxation! I swear I will never get tired of going there. Also, like good little Texas road trippers, we stopped to take a photo next to a giant long horn. You are welcome.

  • Doing life with this guy is fun. He’s the bees knees. (mustache and all) Also, matching fishing shirts are where it’s at!!Featured image
  • I went in for my progesterone test on Friday, and everything is PERFECT!!! Yay!! One week to go.
  • Speaking of one week to go, a little bit of anxiety has set in. I am going to try my hardest to not be too stressed out this week. I will keep you posted on how that is going!!

Praying today for peace!!! I know I can’t do this on my own!!

Have a fabulous week, my friends!!!

August…

Whoah guys. Where the heck did July go? How is it August already?

For most people, August is the beginning of a new school year. A fresh start. For me, August has a different feeling to it. August is the month that we start our fertility treatments.

This month we will do our first IUI. I’m excited. I’m hopeful. I’m really really really scared. I’m not scared of the IUI itself, I have already done enough research on that.  I’m scared of the thing you aren’t supposed to say when you go in for treatment…you know…the whole part about it not working.

I know that’s the enemy getting in to my thoughts, and I am fighting my hardest to fight against him.

So for now, I am prying for my first appointment tomorrow! One step at a time!

Here we go!!!

Infinite Possibilities

Good morning!! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend!!! Let’s tackle this Monday, shall we?

This weekend was so much fun. My husband was out of town for a bachelor party, and my brother and sister-in-law were at our lake house, so I went to my parents for a fun-filled weekend with my favorite nephew!

Seriously guys, what did I do before I was an aunt. I literally stared at him and laughed at him the entire weekend. 11 months old has to be the cutest age ever. He is learning to walk and talk and he is just so dang happy!! Makes my little heart melt every time!! I’ll share a pic so you can gush over him too 😉Featured image

I also wanted to share with you a little bit of what I got out of my quiet time this morning. I am in the middle of a study by Kelly Minter called “What is Love” It is a study of 1,2,3 John. Today was over prayer.

1 John 5:14:
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us -whatever we ask- we know that we have what we asked of Him. 

I read that over and over this morning saying out loud, “but God, I have asked you over and over for what I want.” Then I looked again at the part that says, “according to His will.” His will. Not mine. Guys, he knows what we need better than us. His timetable is better than ours. His will is PERFECT.

A phrase that kept popping into my head this morning was, Infinite Possibilities. I just kept repeating that over and over. Maybe by being so focused on this one thing that I want so desperately, I am missing out on so many other things that God has prepared for me.

So today I am praying for those infinite possibilities! To be open to all that God has planned for me! To open my eyes to things that I am not aware of yet! And I also pray those things over all of you as well!Featured image

Everyone have a fantastic Monday!!

Count Your Blessings

Featured image

Have you ever looked up and realized that your life is not really how you pictured it?

Well, mine is almost exactly how I hoped it would be. Almost. Obviously if you follow this blog you know what’s missing. Some days can be really hard, and some days can be really sad.

But you know what I forget sometimes, how incredibly blessed I am. There are so many things in my life that I can absolutely say are blessings from God. My loving, supportive, patient husband. My amazing family. The best friends a girl could ever ask for. A beautiful new home. A job that I actually don’t mind going to. Travels, experiences, and some incredible adventures.

Walking through infertility can sometimes seem very lonely. It’s so important to reach out to people that know how you feel and have experienced the same heartache. This morning I was reminded of that! I got to have a conversation with a friend who has gone through exactly what all of us are going through. I know this sounds silly, but to talk to someone who knows the lingo is so refreshing!

I know it’s July and it’s weird to be thinking about christmas movies, but there is a scene in the movie White Christmas where Bing Crosby sings a song about blessings that I sing in my head when I’m thinking about all I’m blessed with. The chorus goes:

When I’m worried and I can’t sleep,
I count my blessings instead of sheep.
and I fall asleep, counting my blessings. 

So simple, but I love it!

Well, I  hope you guys have a wonderful Thursday!! I also want to add how incredibly blessed I feel to have this little space, and to have been able to connect with so many of you!! Your stories and honesty are so inspiring!

Be sure and check out Miss.Conception Coach’s Online Fertility Conference starting July 13th for some incredible stories by some incredible women!

The Next Step…

Happy Monday, ya’ll! I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend. Ours was great…but so so busy! I am tired 🙂 Good thing we are heading to Vegas for a little vacay this week!!!

I just wanted to share a little bit about what we found out at our appointment last week.

I am not sure what I was expecting. I guess I was expecting to be able to sit down and talk about everything that has happened. To talk about how I was feeling and really let the doctor know the struggles I was having. I was picturing rainbows and butterflies and him telling us that we would all get through this, together.

Guess what, I went to a fertility doctor, not a counselor.

He was very matter of fact, straight to the point. We’ve been trying for two unsuccessful years, and we would need help. He’s been doing this for long enough to pretty much know what is going to happen.

We will test CP, they will do blood work on me, he may want to do an HSG, but most likely we will have start with an IUI.

It didn’t take very long to come to that conclusion, and I respect him for not running test after test just to see. I am glad that he didn’t sugar coat it and try to make me feel better, he’s there to get me pregnant.

So that’s where we are now. Waiting on a few results to see if that’s what we will do. I think I feel a little bit of relief about it. I am definitely happy we are starting to get answers.

I will keep you posted as we get closer to making more decisions. I hope everyone has a fantastic week!! I will take lots of pics from our little vacay to share with you 🙂

Our New Journey: Day One

Featured image

Sometimes you just need a good DMB jam to start your day…am I right? 🙂

Today is the day. The day of our first fertility appointment. I can’t quite put a finger on what I am feeling right now. Excited? Anxious? Scared? All of the above?

Either way I am praying for answers! I know that I won’t get any immediately (or maybe I will), but I know that this is the first step for our growing family!

Thanks so everyone who is sending prayers our way, I can definitely feel them!!

Wish us luck!!!

You Can Do Hard Things

Featured imageThis seems to be all I can get out today. It’s a tough one. Just trying to prepare my mind, and my heart for my big appointment next Tuesday. The appointment that I am absolutely terrified to go to. Asking for prayers today 🙂 Prayers for comfort, and joy, and strength, and the peace that passes understanding.

 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7

The Desires of Your Heart

Featured image

I read a few daily devotions each morning. Typically they differ from each other every day, and I love my daily reminders of all of God’s promises.

Today it seems that all of my devotions centered around one scripture, Psalm 37:4.

“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart”

Apparently I needed that little reminder today. 🙂

It’s finally Friday!!!! I don’t know about you guys, but this week has been a loooooooong one! I welcome this weekend full of rest with open arms!! We are going to be pretty busy the next few weeks, so I plan on taking full advantage of not having (too many) plans. Here’s hoping for a weekend full of sunshine 🙂

I hope everyone has a great Friday, and an Amazing weekend!!
