Miller On Demand

Bringing you the live, uncensored, uncut, and up-to-date info from our lives. Jeff and I are using this to help bridge the gap between our friends and family and us. We are also using this blog as a written documentation of our lives and adventures of being a military family. Our current adventure has us living in Raymore, MO. We have been here for a year and a half and like it pretty well. We moved here after spending three wonderful years in Okinawa, Japan. We LOVED it there it was so much fun, the culture is amazing and we definitely miss it. But being a military family we have become accustomed to change and it has become that time again for a change. So we are embracing our life here in Missouri but also planning a move to Chicago in the summer. Such is the life of the military but we are hoping that it will bring great experiences and memories like we have experienced in the past.

Jeff and I are both 28, we have been married for 8 years, together for 10 and known each other for over 13 years. We have been struggling with infertility for over five years. We found out after a year of trying that I have PCOS and it definitely makes things harder in the TTC universe. We got pregnant in 2010 using Clomid and sadly suffered a miscarriage. We had to take a break from TTC because it was controlling our lives but we got back on it when we came back to the states. We went to a RE here in MO and he wanted to hold off on trying for six months so that I could participate in this PCOS trial he was doing using BC pills and a Flax Seed Pill. He also wanted me to lose weight (which is what all of my doctors have told me and I have been trying to). Anyways the trial lasted for six months and after that we would talk about our options with Clomid or Femara (I wasn’t ready to start IUI or IVF quite yet). When the trial ended I didn’t have a chance to make it back in to see him right away. I suppose it was a good thing that I couldn’t go see him right away because my first period after being off BC I ended up getting pregnant. Without any medicines or treatments or anything we definitely didn’t think anything would happen we figured we would have to go back in and try more meds before we would ever get pregnant again and BAM it came out of nowhere and we were pregnant! We are definitely blessed with this miracle baby and are so excited we can’t wait to find out everything we can and finally meet our little baby!

Right now, we are enjoying our 3 extremely spoiled dogs: Marley (7 year old Dachshund) and Tucker (6 year old Akita/Husky), and Coco (our crazy hyper 1 year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever!) and exploring this new home that we have and the sites around it. I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures as much as I enjoy posting about them.

Disclaimer: I post whatever I want about whatever I want. Sometimes I just reblog, sometimes its personal, political, religious, it doesn’t matter if I feel like posting it I will.

This is really great and all but I’m sitting here wondering how many toilets this man has in his house.

I was tagged by bullymommy2012 to list ten random facts about me. Um I suck at talking about myself but here goes…

  • I am a first time mom to my beautiful baby Elijah.
  • We suffer with infertility and after a miscarriage and five years we were blessed with our rainbow baby!
  • We just moved to North Chicago, IL – Its interesting and so far I like it.
  • I am a full time student thinking I’m a student for life.
  • I am currently getting my second Master’s degree this one in Mental Health Counseling.
  • I have three furbabies and love them like my child, which is funny because all the people with children before I had my son told me that you can’t love pets the way you love your own child. They are still my children.
  • I love getting hanging out with my friends but I would much rather have people over to cook, eat, and play board/card games and just veg out instead of going out.
  • I am well aware of my procrastination and lack of motivation. I have tried starting the T25 workout program at least 5 different times and can never do it for more than the first week.
  • I wish my blog would just transcribe from my thoughts without me having to figure out how to put it into words and type it up. I enjoy having my blog and want to post a lot of different things but because of my procrastination and lack of motivation I don’t post real posts very often.
  • Being a mother is by far the hardest, most confusing, and the best most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me!
