Reflecting on 2012 and moving Forward

Looking back at 2012, it was officially the best year of my life yet! Now I can't wait to see what next year brings.

January 2012- I was super pregnant and having my baby moon in the Caribbean

2012 My husbands business really took off and allowed me to quit my job of 8 YEARS! Guys, I HATED my job. I love staying at home with my babe.

I had this little monkey. He was a miracle. He came 5 weeks early but is healthy as can be! SO many blessings!

He added the sweetest spirit to our home

My little sis came home from her mission and got to meet her two sweet nephews. :)

I FINALLY went to Harry Potter Land- if you know me you know I am OBSESSED with Harry Potter and it was a dream vacation!

Got to visit lots of fabulous beaches with my favorite guys

On top of that we bough our first custom home and are moving in less than TWO WEEKS!!!

Not a bad year if I do say so myself. :) I am feeling beyond blessed today looking back at the blessing we have received. This gets me excited for 2013. :) Happy New Years guys!!!

Updating My Blog List

Please let me know if you would like to be on my blog list :) I am trying to update things on here since I am going on for round 2!  Plus, I think it's such a good way for us infertile ladies to stay connected! :)

A Trip Down Memory Lane

I was going through a box of old stuff and found my planner/calendar from the year we did IVF. Reading through it I almost died seeing my daily schedule...I wanted this baby SO BAD and tried to do everything perfect to make this happen. Not that it always works, but it would say daily affirmations, daily walks and workouts, drinking LOTS of water, working out  (lightly of course- because I was nervous of messing things up), Lupron shots, relaxation techniques, constant doctors appointments (seriously like 2-3 a week)! It's still amazing to me that it really worked the first time. After LOTS of failed IUI's, and months of chlomid I didn't think a positive was possible. I have a phone app that tracks my cycle now- like I said I started it this month. My cycle is due in the next week. Strangest thing is that when I was possibly ovulating this month I got SUPER nauseated...ya know like pregnancy nausea. For a splint second I thought...hmmmm maybe??? Jonny immediately got me a pregnancy test that said negative. I knew it would. I read online I guess you can get nauseated when you ovulate....strange??! This whole normal trying to get pregnant thing is so foreign to me. I feel so out of my element that I just want to call me RE and set an appt right now. Sounds silly to pay another 6 grand or so when I DID get pregnant on my own after Deklan was born. I wait. Deklan is still SUCH a tiny baby to me. He still snuggles. I am loving every minute with this little guy. He is honestly my best friend. He does EVERYTHING with me. Jonny and I decided if nothing happends by March we will go sit down with our RE. Here are a few recent instagram photos of baby boy!
