Travel: Hotlanta!

I have to be honest, Atlanta is not my favorite place.  Of course I enjoyed our trip but Georgia left some things to be desired. The trip started out with a red eye flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta.  We had just found out we were pregnant and I was exhausted.  I was hoping to…

Infertility: Miscarriage

This is a very strong warning – there is no way to share this in a way that I feel will help others without being extremely graphic. This was a very traumatic experience but I want to share this for the people out there going through the same thing. I found some comfort in reading…

Cooking: Broccoli Casserole

I came across a recipe similar to this on Facebook and decided I would give it a try but with my own flare to it.  It came out delicious and it’s low carb, a win, win in our book! Ingredients: 1 Bag of Frozen Broccoli 1/2 Block of Cream Cheese 1/4 to 1/2 Cup of…

Infertility: Viability & Dating Ultrasound #2

It took a long time to get here, and I am not just talking about the 2 and a half week wait for this appointment.  I am talking about the over ten years we have waited to have a beautiful, healthy baby. I worked from home this day, so that I could prepare for whatever…

Infertility: Intake Appointment

For the next two weeks my emotions were all over the place.  Jon tried to reassure me that we couldn’t think the worst, that we had to try and stay positive.  Luckily I had a work trip to keep me occupied for a little while, and then a few days of fun in Vegas helped…

Infertility: Viability & Dating Ultrasound #1

As soon as I found out I was officially pregnant I tried to call and set-up our first pregnancy appointment.  I tried to get it all set-up before we left but when I called they explained that they had nothing available between the day we would get back from Atlanta and the day I would…

Infertility: Wait, What? We’re Pregnant!

If you have followed along our infertility journey you know that my menstrual cycle has always been irregular. Although, I have to say that ever since our first IUI and following the Keto diet, my periods have become much more regular. Recently they slowly started drifting further apart so I didn’t really think anything of…

Infertility: IUI Treatment One vs Two

I thought it would be interesting to compare the two IUI cycles we have had to date as there were quite a few differences.  Here it goes… Weight 36 pounds heavier than current weight 36 pounds lighter than previous weight Menstrual Cycle IUI One: Brought on by Provera IUI Two: Came naturally Clomid (100mg both…

Travel: Seaworld (San Diego)

Despite the rain we were determined to celebrate our TEN YEAR anniversary like we had planned.  We knew were going to make the most out of our trip to San Diego even if it meant doing something other than going to Seaworld like we had planned. We started out bright and early on a raining…

Marriage: Compromise (Fundamentals Series)

I think we have all heard the saying that goes a little something like this… I have found the one who completes me.  I like to use the analogy of puzzle pieces when thinking of  relationships.  Somewhere out there in the world is your matching piece, the one whose piece fits almost perfectly with your…
