blogging backseat

April 18, 2012

Hey there. Long time no blog, huh?

I have a lot going on. I am taking a really big career enhancing test next Tuesday so I literally spend every single free minute studying.

I also spend time with this crazy girl.

Talk about love. She fills me and Keith with so much joy!! I will say, though, that neither Keith nor I were as prepared as we thought to have a puppy. She changes EVERYTHING about our daily routine. We absolutely love it but it has been an adjustment. Keith says we are finally doing this in the right order. Puppy first then baby. Not the other way around.

And speaking of babies. Keith and I have our doctor’s appointment on Thursday to start discussing what testing we are going to start doing. It’s a little scary. I am not sure what would be worse… actually finding something wrong or not knowing the cause of 2 back to back miscarriages both between the 8 and 9 week mark and within 5 months on one another. Doesn’t sound normal does it?

So to say I have a lot on my mind is a HUGE understatement and I just haven’t had the time or energy to blog. Just stick with me. Once my life feels like my own again I will be back to regular blogging. Wish us luck on Thursday!

    Such a good idea to have a pup before a baby! 🙂 Puppies are so much work! Totally worth it but, you’re right, they change everything!

    Your puppy is so freaking adorable!

    I am so sorry to read of your loss. I know how hard it is when you just want to be a mom. You will be. I’ve been there. I suffered from infertility and tried fertility treatments for 8 months. A few days after we decided to quit the fertility treatments, we found out we matched with a birth mom (we were pursuing adoption at the same time.). 8 weeks later I was cutting the umbilical cord of my beautiful daughter. She could not be more “ours” if I had given birth to her myself. Now, 2 years later I am pregnant and due in July. We were not trying at all and this was a total surprise after my past (I am also hypothyroid) So, 3 years after wondering if I’d ever be a mom, I have 2 miracles to be thankful for. Life has a funny way of working out the way it is meant to be.
    Feel free to contact me if you ever want someone else to talk to. Stay strong, it WILL happen!

    Sorry life is so crazy for you right now. 😦 But good luck on the test, good luck with the appointment, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. 🙂

    life is crazy good, yes?! oh i love seeing that little ball of JOY and good luck on the tests!

    Oh my gosh – so cute. Yes – pets are definitely like babies and change your routine. When we first got our cat, he would cry in the middle of the night b/c he was a kitten and couldn’t jump up on the bed. We were up at 3 a.m. building him a little ramp so he could climb up and sleep with us to stop his crying.

    Good luck with your test and with your appointment.

    My husband says that when the girl wants a baby…you get a dog. It buys the boy some time 🙂 Your pup is adorable! Good luck on Thursday 🙂
