The Worst Blogger in the History of Blogging

Yep, thats me! I have been horrible at keeping this blog updated. My last post was the first of January and I never even bothered posting the "After" pics of my new house. (It looks MUCH better than it did in the befores. ) I promise to post those soon. While I have no excuses for being such a bad blogger I have been pretty busy...

On Saturday, August 3, 2013 I married my best friend in a very simple but wonderful beach ceremony. 

 It was the happiest day of my life. I look forward to sharing this new chapter in my life. 

While this summer has been wonderful in so many ways it has also been the saddest and most difficult time of my life to this point. As most of you know from this blog I was married before and we tried for multiple years to have a baby. I have been diagnosed with Endometrosis and been through several procedures to remove blockages in my tubes. I was also put on Clomid to help increase our chances of getting pregnant. My first husband and I were referred to a fertility specialist and after a few visits decided that we wanted to wait a little longer to begin any invasive procedures. We were married for five year and were never able to have a baby. 

In March my dr. found some abnormal cells on my cervix and suggested that I have a procedure done to remove them. I decided to wait on the procedure since it also affects your ability to carry a child to full term. I am not sure why I decided to wait as I never expected to get pregnant after all I have been through. Well on June 2, 2013 I got the biggest surprise of my life. I saw a positive pregnancy test for the first time in my 30 years. It was a complete surprise (I had not been to a fertility dr in almost 4 years) but B and I were overjoyed. I heard the heart beat at 6 weeks and everything seemed to be going fine. I had slight cramping but never any bleeding. At my 10 week appointment we got the worst news possible; there was no longer a heartbeat. On July 12th I had a D&C to remove our sweet baby. My body and my heart are still healing. My dr. has requested that we do not pregnant again until they have taken care of the abnormal cells. They are still suggesting that we do the LEEP procedure to remove the cells. I have another appointment this Friday so we will see how it goes from there.

Oh my congrats! How long have you been friends with your husband? It seems so fast, but I'm sure it wasn't. Kind of like how fast kids grow up when you aren't around them. haha Your wedding looks like it was beautiful. I am so sorry for your loss, but in a way it is good news, you know it is possible to get pregnant on your own. Hopefully once you get those cells removed you will be able to try again. I had pre-cancerous "abnormal" cells removed from my cervix, like 2 years before I got pregnant with my son. So it didn't seem to affect anything. I am so glad you are doing well.

I am so happy to see that you're back but happy and sad for you at the same time. That's wonderful news that you got married! How exciting! I'm sorry that you lost your sweet baby but at least now you know you can get pregnant!
