January 21st, 2012.  CD9.

I know, I know.

It’s been a minute, right?

I swear I haven’t been avoiding you, or this blog… I just needed a step back.  I also hoped I’d have some news for you when I returned…

I actually wrote a really long and thoughtful post last weekend… and then the interwebs ate it.  And then I got mad and went to bed.

But, I’m back now, and I have some updates.

First, I am not pregnant.  I know that sometimes when TTC bloggers disappear, people think it’s because they are withholding big news, but not so for this blogger.  I swear that if I have that type of news, you’ll be the second to know.  …I should probably tell my husband first.

I stopped the meds in November and let myself have a natural cycle.  Said natural cycle lasted 50 days, but Aunt Flo finally showed her ugly face.

In that 50 days, many amazing things happened…

I got a sweet promotion.  And a raise.  After only 4 months!

I gained the weight I’ve been working at for years, and have finally reached my goal weight of 120 pounds.

I found out the husband and I are going to be proud aunt and uncle to twin boys in June.

We are also going to be godparents to a sweet baby girl in May.

And honorary aunt and uncle to a miracle baby in September!

We’ve also decided to start looking for a house of our own.

The husband had a job interview with a major company that could come with a nice big pay increase and even better benefits.

Things are really coming together… And it’s been nice to have all of these distractions while waiting for baby to make three.

Medical bills are still out of control, and insurance isn’t covering nearly enough.  As tax season approaches, we may have to use our refund this year to pay for our first IUI.  (Incidentally, if the IRS gives us a baby girl, I am working on talking the husband into naming her Iris.  The jury’s still out.)

I plan to get in touch with Dr. Fran this month, and hopefully get this game plan rolling.  In the meantime, I have a lot of life to live.

I have renewed hope in this year.  I feel like the Mayans maybe thought the world would end in 2012 because maybe they foresaw my offspring entering the picture.  That’s gotta be it, right?

Oh crap.  Gotta go.  Coyote Ugly’s on.

(I’m gonna make a great parent one day, I swear.)

    Ha, I’ve had the same thought about the Mayans and my (hopefully) future offspring! Congrats on all the good you have to focus on inyour life and hope 2012 is your year.

    You’ve been busy with a lot of good things! And it would be too cute to end up with “momma’s little tax return” this year. After all, you’ve paid your “taxes”, it’s time.

    And hey, we can’t fight the moonlight. Coyote Ugly sucks in even the strongest of us.

    Looks like you’re one step away from getting preggo!

A safe space where I discuss the racing thoughts in my head, personal struggles, and day-to-day activities while struggling with mental health and mood disorder issues. My personal goal is to reduce the stigma that comes with mental health and mood disorders, by talking more about it.
