I’m back, I have a baby, and the road is still bumpy!


I just read my old post and I have become inspired again to continue to tell my story and document my journey.

Mr.B and I are still in love!

I had a little boy June 11 2014 he is now 14 months old.

I graduated from the University of Louisville in May 2015 and landed my dream job 2 weeks later.

Two months ago my baby brother died.

I will dive into all of these things in coming post so stay tuned.

I’ve been growing a person!

I can not believe it has been so long since my last post. I thought I would have more time on my hands to keep up with this blog, and documenting the progression of my pregnancy but my studies come first. Which is conveniently a great excuse, I’m just way to busy growing a person and channel surfing.
So I am 25 weeks now and boy does it show! I have gained 20 pounds so far not counting the 10 from IVF, which I don’t count but maybe I should. In that case I am up 30 pounds so far… After all I went through, I did not think the weight gain would matter to me at all, but it does. I am already obsessing about how to lose it fast after I push this kid out. I am so heavy and uncomfortable, because my body is not happy about carrying around 180 pounds. When I’m heading out at night on one of the ten trips to the bathroom Mr.B automatically wakes to help prop me up so I can get out of the bed. I feel like a old woman most of the time with these muscle aches and because of this I’m not nearly as active as I should be or as I thought I would be. What’s crazy is that some days I feel flipping amazing, it’s these days that I do housework, schoolwork, shopping and try to pay some attention to Mr.B I will try to be more diligent with my postings and keep you readers up to date with me. Life has been very interesting, wonderful and yet uneventful, as So far this pregnancy has been nothing like I thought it would be, and more than I ever dreamed of.

18 weeks

My oh my how this is moving right along. I have not been as diligent about my documentation as I thought I would be. Not even one bump shot, and trust me it’s made its appearance finally it’s baby and not bloat. I have started purchasing things for the nursery but nothing is set up yet. The nursery still has my desk and a couch but I did get rid of the book shelf that housed my four years worth of textbooks that cost me more then should be legal. The one thing that does look great is his closet, which I spent two days removing my things from. It’s starting to become a fact that we are having a baby. Mr. B looks at me all the time and with surprise in his voice says “we are having a baby?” like I just told him I’m late or something. I say “duh” and smile a secretive smile because truthfully I am just as surprised as he is. Just as shocked, elated, thrilled, speechless, scared, and grateful as he is. In my battle against infertility, She Won! And I thank God I did.
