This picture was from M & I’s wedding day, almost 2 years ago! Little did I know the adventures we would be on and the paths those same feet would be walking down. I’ve been reading a lot of blogs lately and have been very encouraged by them, so I thought maybe I could encourage someone else going through a similar journey. And so the blogging begins…
My story in a nutshell-
- I met my amazing husband at church in Colorado. He was the drummer for the worship team… man did I have a hard time focusing!
- After lots of prayer and patience, we started dating on September 23, 2009. He actually asked my dad if he could take me out (this is where everyone says awwww). 😉
- M popped the question on June 23, 2010 & I said YES! With lots of tears and smiles and kisses.
- We moved to Ohio in fall of 2010. Hubs left his family and hometown in the mountains of Colorado to follow me out to flat, humid, gray Ohio= true love.
- Married July 23, 2011. Yes, yes… there is a theme with the 23rd! In fact we even got our marriage certificate on the 23rd floor downtown, crazy- I know.
- Gave up BC pill in December 2011, but had crazy cycles. I mean 22-115 days crazy.
- Went to OBGYN Sept. 2012- diagnosed with PCOS. Only factors- anovulatory cycles and polycystic ovaries. Hormones all normal & ideal weight (maybe a little under even).
- Switched to organic vegetarianism October 2012
- Started more actively TTC Nov. 2012
- OBGYN appt. Feb. 2013 all blood tests came back normal. Tried metformin for 40 days, but got a call saying I wasn’t IR. Stopped Met., back to natural supplements.
- Now we wait…
I figure that’s a pretty good snapshot of what’s going on right now. Even if no one reads this, I can at least have an outlet to talk about what I’m going through and how I feel without constantly talking my poor husband’s ear off. For that I am very grateful! Each day contains its own struggles, but I am in constant pursuit of finding things to keep me busy. I already love the babies I don’t have yet so deeply sometimes it hurts not knowing if I’ll get to meet them. I know God has a plan for my life though and I trust that M & I will be parents one day. For now, I continue on my journey.
