This week has been a busy week. This is part of the reason I've not blogged in a while. Tuesday was our 3 yr anniversary! For those who don't know our story when I met Chris the last thing I was thinking is that I would be with that man for the rest of eternity. He was Mr. Cool with an ego and attitude the size of Texas (totally not my type I thought). I was Ms. Independent looking forward to moving and happily enjoying the single life. We had a LOT of fun together those first couple dates and even though we thought the other was totally not our type we continued to go out. One day I think it dawned on both of us that we were very much in love. It was weird b/c I always thought it would be a fairy tale moment but instead it was the slow realization that I wanted to keep being around this man. That he was a good, kind, fun loving, human who I didn't want to be separated from. If you ask Chris I was this quirky, opinionated good hearted, person whom he didn't want to be without. So we got married. Neither of us are perfect and we drive each other crazy BUT I can easily say we are madly in love with each other.
It is so funny b/c when we got engaged we knew we wanted children right away. So after we got married I started doing all the charting and stuff and realized I had infertility. I have a form of infertility known as anovulatory cycles. This means I don't ovulate on my own. I am really fortunate that I got such a clear and easily treatable diagnoses quickly. Each time we tried to conceive we only had to wait roughly 9 months. Many women I know go much longer trying... sometimes years. It makes me realize two things:
- Is that we are beyond blessed. Anyone who is fortunate enough to get pregnant and have a child needs to realize there is no greater miracle. Enjoy every moment b/c it will go by too quickly!
- There are so many who struggle with this. Be mindful if you know someone. Support them every way possible and be aware that talking about your own kids and/or pregnancies can be painful to others with infertility or those suffering miscarriages. Let them take the lead in conversations
