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.
