an unconventional road

rarely do i post anything of significance. maybe i need to rephrase that. the intention of this blog was/is to be a light-hearted update on our day-to-day happenings. to keep family and friends informed of our coming and goings, life here in north carolina, and to showcase my latest creations. that being said.

you spend your whole life trying not to get pregnant and when you're finally ready...nothing. yes, infertility has popped it's ugly head into our lives. months of nothing happening has slowly turned into two years. in june we decided to get tested. four months and many, many tests later our problems are pretty much confirmed. not to go into much detail, we'll be needing medical assistance, i.e. IVF.

it's a definite blow to ones psyche. no matter how strong a person you are, you're never really prepared to hear it's not going to happen, at least not naturally. especially when you KNOW you are meant to be a parent. both of us are staying positive as well as optimistic. i think it's the only way to get through this otherwise.

we have an appointment in charlotte on tuesday to discuss our treatment plan. all our tests will be evaluated and we'll find out when we can get the ball rolling, so to speak.

this post was supposed to be so much longer, i've been contemplating sharing this since we found out. it honestly doesn't bother me to talk about it. i just had to make sure aaron was on board and he gave me the go-ahead last week. no need to walk on eggshells around us. we're tough cookies and we'll get through this, hopefully with a baby or two in the end! thanks everyone for all your love and support! we love you all!

I'm hoping for two babies for you and just said a prayer to that effect. As you're beginning this journey I'm going to need you to remember not to let infertility ruin your life. It's hard. Hard as HELL! The hardest thing I've ever dealt with...but it won't kill you and you'll still need to live regardless the outcome.

You have had all my support from the very beginning and I have the utmost confidence that everything will work out how you want it to. Our babies won't be too far off in age and we can schedule long distance play dates that last weekends! I have my fingers crossed and so does Diego, we love you guys!
