4 weeks later!! Week 9

Today it was amazing to see the baby on ultrasound. I was able to see the legs and hands moving and the tiny heart pumping. It was so amazing.

I can't believe it has been 9 weeks. So far I have gotten sick twice during the night and that was a once a week thing, had a bladder infection and feeling fatigue other than that things are progressing nicely. Thank you Lord!

My mom has also bought baby Younger some onesies. I love looking at baby clothes more than ever before. The question is blue or pink!? Can't wait to find out in 10 weeks!

Thanks for popping in!

I'm almost 5 weeks pregnant!!!

Wow! That is all I can say! What a true Miracle from the Lord! Many of you don't know about my condition its called...PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). It is when you have benign cysts on your ovaries and you don't ovulate every month and sometimes can be genetic. Symptoms are weight gain, depression/anxiety, facial hair, no menstration and very difficult to get pregnant but it can be done with the proper treatment and careful watching of hormone levels thru bloodwork and ultrasound.

Our Journey....

On January 2009 we decided to go see a fertilty doctor at Uconn Health Center since we knew I didn't ovulate regularly and had to take special drugs to bring on a period. My older sister had the same symptoms and diagnosis so I knew I had PCOS without getting a ultrasound. So in January I went and it was confirmed that I had PCOS thru the ultrasound and bloodwork. After a ton of blood work about 10 vials of blood taken everything came back normal and the bloodwork confirmed I did not ovulate. When I was all clear from the lab work I started Clomid. We started with 50mg no such luck in ovulating. I took 100mg and I ovulated on the last day of testing but didn't get pregnant. So we decided to stay with 100mg and try again. No such luck with that. Than we up the dose to 150mg. No Such Luck. The doctor at that point decided that the clomid would not work so he advised me to do shots and IUI. And guess what I'm pregnant!!

On July 23,2009 we found out that I was pregnant. I was in shock and I kept asking the nurse on the phone. So I am really pregnant! It was like I was in a dream! It was a shocker! Eric was calling me every hour..."Did they call". I called him and I said "we need to clean the room next to our bedroom!" He didn't get it..as I was talking to him he had another call come in and than that's when it dawned on him! He called me back and said so did the dr call. I said yeah. He said "and the results are." I said to him "you know what it is". I kept teasing him. So finally I called him and he broke down in tears.

That night we went to Century Buffet with my parents for dinner!

So far I have had mild waves of nausea and cramps but other than that I don't feel any different!
Thanks everyone for praying!

Keep checking for updates! God is really in the miracle business. I am due on my hubby's birthday and it was a season I always wanted to have a baby in!

4th of July

For 4th of July we ended going to Strawberry Park and doing an overnight camping trip with my whole family. We had a great time with everyone. We did have some unusual people that were next to us that was slamming thing, yelling, and had the TV very loud all night and than they had the nerve to complain about Jenna and Josh who are little toddlers. It was nice going and it was beautiful weather. Too bad it didn't last long. I also had Monday and Tuesday off. What fun!

Am I really 31?

Well people I officially turned 31 on June 26th. I can't believe it! I had a good day. I took the day off and any day that I don't have to get up early and go to work is a good day. LOL!

I got to sleep in, enjoy some quiet time, went out to lunch with my mom, went to the mall with my mom and than later in the evening my mom and Eric and me went to JT Timothy's! It was a great day! Oh and the thunderstorm didn't effect my day, maybe just a little!

Halfway thru June!!!

Wow we are half way thru June already. This Sunday is 1st day of summer! YEAH! We have had Rain, Rain, and more Rain these days. I think maybe that is why I come home so tired and sleepy.

I do have to say I have been a little discouraged lately but my hubby is there to encourage me and help me when needed. I love him so much!

Our church friends have been truly an encouragement to me as well. Thanks Dan and Talie and Annemarie for your care and concern but mostly for your prayers. They mean a lot.

I can't believe I will be 31 next week. Wow! Where does the time go? Don't know what the plans are for my birthday but I am sure my hubby will make it extra special.

This past weekend we finally went to the beach it was a little dark and rainy but we still had a good time together....Watching the seagalls and birds fly around. Looking forward to the next time we go!


Thats all folks! Maybe next time I will have better news to express. Thanks for all your prayers!

May Happenings!

Where does the time go? Seems like yesterday I just posted the blog below.

Anyways we have had a lot of celebrations this May..We had my brother's Jack and Jill, than it was Mother's Day, My Mom's Birthday, and my Papa's 96th Birthday oh and I forgot Eric and I went to go see Phantom of the Opera and now we are looking forward to Kristen's Graduation.

The Jack and Jill was great. There was tons of people there. I didn't know my brother and future sister in law knew that many people. It was a so much fun especially the raffle and hearing the band that was there.


For Mother's Day we had a great Service. Ken Mansfield manager of the Beatles was at our church on Mother's Day. It was great hearing about his work with the Beatles and how he became a Christian. Very Interesting and intriguing. After church we went to Stonewell for brunch and then after that we went to my Grandmother's Graveside. I can't believe it's been 7 years! I miss her!

My Grandfather will be 96 in a couple of days. Wow! 96 and he is sharp and doing great! We all went out to Outback to celebrate and than came back to his house and had cake!

So that's all I have to share about what's going on! I will be back later with other things to share. Stay tuned!

Happy Spring!

The flowers are finally blooming and warm weather is starting to kick in. It is so beautiful! Things have been a little busy so that is why I haven't blogged. It looks like I am back on the radar. Not much to report. On April 1st I got rear-ended and my car got slightly damaged. The cop gave the girl a ticket and took her car away for not having a license on her. So my car is fixed and the her insurance paid 100%. Glad no one got hurt.

For Easter, we had 2 services at our church. My parents, Ang and Ryan and the kids, and Kris and Brandon came to church too. Eric had tons of specials lined up and it was nice to hear people sing. We also had both piano's at church were going and it was quite nice to have 2 going at least I felt a little more confident if I messed up the other piano would cover my mistake. After church we went to my parents house for dinner and my mom made the usual full meal. The twins got to do their Easter egg hunt. It was so cute to see them all dressed up and searching for eggs. We stopped over Papa's house and spent some time with him and than we went over Lindsay's (my future sister in law) parent's house for coffee and dessert. FYI--My Brother is finally getting married in 3 months!

Well it's back to work. I will post pics of the past few months of things and try to remember what I forgot to blogged. Be back soon..keep checking in!
