Well, things are ok here. It has been quite an awful month to be quite honest with all of you. I totally thought that perhaps the Clomid wouldn't be that bad this time around since I already have our little boy, but I was wrong. I guess I didn't realize how bad this fertility drug was until it started causing havoc in my life. WOW, lets talk about some messed up hormones, mood swings, mood swings and did I mention mood swings? It has been so terribly bad that my husband and I sat down to talk about what we are going to do next month if we didn't become pregnant. Well, after that conversation we decided to STOP the Clomid and just enjoy our little boy. This fertility drug is truly enough to make me want to climb the walls, scream at the top of my lungs, cry, laugh and whatever else strikes my fancy. I would normally be able to handle things and I wouldn't get so upset, but I am truly someone that I am not familiar with at all and it isn't fun!! I am ready for these fertility meds to be out of my system and for me to get back to the person that I am use to being. It is strange when you feel like you are out of control and you realize it, but you just basically have to wait til the meds are out of your system to feel better. Being infertile is definitely a very tough road for anyone and then when you throw medication on top of the emotions and hormones that you are already coping with it makes it even more difficult. I always wanted more then 1 child because I wanted Cameron to have someone to play with and I know for a fact that he would be an EXCELLENT Big Brother, but if we don't have another one then it won't be the end of the world and I have realized that. I am just so very happy and blessed that I have 1 child and he brings so much love, laughter, and light to our lives. I go in for bloodwork on the 18th. . . . that will let me know if I ovulated so we will see what takes place then. We are not giving up hope and we are keeping the FAITH, but I will feel a sense of relief once I am done with the roller coaster of emotions and the Clomid is out of my system. I will keep you all posted.
I am a Christian, daughter, sister, wife, and a very proud Mommy to a beautiful little boy that was conceived through IVF. My husband and I have been married for over 7 years and truly enjoy every single day that we have with our little miracle. After a loss in 2004 and many years of infertility treatments we were finally blessed with our son in 2007. He is indeed a precious gift from God and we are so very blessed to have him in our lives.
During my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, thrift store shopping, making primitive signs & gameboards and re-finishing items with great prim potential.
Shawn - A kind, compassionate and loving husband and father. He brings so much more to the world of Daddyhood. He is my knight & shining armor and I love him dearly!
Cameron - Our pride & joy. The answer to our prayers and the love of our lives. Our little IVF miracle that is full of so much spunk and love. This little boy will always have you smiling or laughing. We love you our sweet boy!!

My journey with infertility started back in Feb. 2004 after we lost a child due to an ectopic pregnancy. I struggled for over a year to get pregnant and then decided to seek help. We tried 6 months of clomid, intrauterine insemination (2 times) and finally IVF. We were blessed with our little miracle in January 2007 after our first round with IVF. We are so happy and he is truly a gift from God. Our story is below...check back frequently as I am constantly adding more posts, pictures and funny stories.
