at least 6 months

When I went to the dr. for my 6 week check up, she wanted to know what kind of birth control (if any) I would want to get started on.  I said that I just wasn't interested because of many reasons.

First and mainly because it took us so long to get here, I'd hate to get on birth control and have that throw us a curve ball for when we go to try for our second baby.  Second being, I don't want it to hinder my milk supply at all and lastly, I just don't want to take a pill or something else daily/monthly, whatever...

I know it's risky and for all we know we might be pregnant sooner than we think, but we're not afraid.  We want kids and while we'd love to say that we want them about 2 years apart, who knows what will happen.  We're not going to actively start trying for about a year, but anything could happen.

My dr. requested that we wait at least 6 months to a year to start trying again and that fits right into what we had said from the beginning.  My body just hasn't fully recovered and while we want them close, we don't want them that close together.  I want time to heal and time to get back into better shape before I go through another pregnancy.

It's crazy to think that I could go through this all over again and love our next baby just as much as I love Coen?  I just don't know how people do it and now it allows me to understand why some people stop at one.  We would never intentionally do that, but I get it.  He's just so sweet and I want to give him all of my love...

He is mine and I am his, forever...

What a great photo!

I'm sure you will love another child just as much as C. Your heart truly does grow with each child.
Yay! What a great photo.

And as Sassytimes said - your heart DOES grow with each baby.


So excited for what the future might bring you two...
God has a plan. :) He will bless you with more than you can ever imagine! :) I have two that are 10 1/2 months apart (originally 12 1/2 but she was a preemie). We definitely would have never planned it that way but we love it so much now. It was hard when they were babies, really hard but they are so close and inseperable. I love seeing their bond grow more everyday. They never remember being without each other and it's pretty awesome. :)

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
