Gearing Up

Things have been very quite around my world lately. I admittedly gained some weight back in the past two months. It was so easy going from eating perfectly healthy every day to eating like crap again. Turns out it is a lot harder to go back to eating really healthy again. For the past week I have been trying to get it back under control, and working out everyday. but it doesn't seem to be making a huge difference, which is frustrating.

But regardless I am still under my IVF weight, and things are lining up for starting IVF #2 in June. We are ordering the meds and waiting for the calendar from my IVF nurse to see what we are looking at as far as timing goes. I am excited to get started again. Mother's Day was hard for me, and it seems like everyone around me is giving birth or announcing their newest pregnancy. I am beyond ready for it to be me.

I am also very excited because I have a little surprise lined up for Garry at the end of June. I won't go into much detail because I don't want him to find out, but it is something we really need, and it will be a good way to either celebrate IVF #2 working or drown our sorrows if it doesn't work. I'll clue you all in when I clue him in. We are also going to get our portraits taken by a friend who is also a wonderful photographer. I have always hated our engagement photos, so these will take their place. It is all part of my plan to concentrate not just on trying to have a baby, but also to make sure that no matter what we are as tight a couple as we have always been.

It may be slow around here until IVF #2 actually gets going because I have a lot of work responsibilities coming up, and I have several photography projects of my own coming up as well. Enjoy the Spring people!


  1. Hang in there. Enjoy the other things that life has to offer. I promise you round 2 is so much better than round 1. There is a lot less stress involved.

  2. good luck with number 2. look forward to following you
