Just feels right...

Happy Summer!!

I feel like we have been going 100 mph since Kylee got out of school..We are just now settling into our routine. 
So here is an update..
Nick and I both had out chromosome testing done and everything came back normal. Great news!!! Although it doesn't get us any closer to an answer as to why we can't get pregnant but it eliminates another possibility. 
With those results we have made a that for the first time in 2 years I am confident about..We will wait and see what this next year brings us. My body, family and my heart need a break from all of this. The thought of starting another cycle scares the crap out of me and I honestly don't think mentally I can handle another one, let alone the possibility of a negative result. 
I started acupuncture in April so I will continue to do that and hopefully drop some lbs in the meantime. I am really looking forward to not timing cycles, ultrasounds, blood work etc.. I feel like my body is going through withdrawal of some sort, I have been on hormones on and off for about 2 years and I am a slight mess trying to get back to normal..Sorry Nick!
I am going to try and update more than once every few months..anyone still reading??

It sure has been a while..months!!! Not sure if anyone still keeps up with this anymore but if so then here is an update. To start...we did a second round of IVF in February, with a negative result. Another crushing blow to our journey.
My Dr's response..I am at a loss. She referred us to a Dr in Colorado. Why Colorado, they are one of the best in the nation.
I had my phone consult this past Friday. His recommendation, a chromosome test, add vitamins and anti-oxidants to our diet along with another IVF Colorado.
We are at the point now, 2 years in to this process, where we are stuck. Do we cut our losses and put the rest of this journey in God's hands or do we go to Colorado and try this all over again..
What we have decided to do is go ahead with the chromosome test. Once the results are in we will know what to do.
Thank you everyone for the love and continued support.

New Year

It has been a while..November! Can't believe Christmas has come and gone and now New Year's has come and gone. I have been dreading the new year but really looking forward to it for a few reasons. I am mostly excited to have a fresh slate. Going into the new year positive and hopefully a lot of positives things will happen for us.
We still have all of our Christmas decorations up and I don't want to take them down quite yet. Is that bad? Something about Christmas that brings me peace with a lot of things. Just wish we had more room in our house for everything and I honestly think I would keep everything up till Spring.
Here are a few pictures to sum up the Holiday...

Gingerbread houses are really so much harder than I thought..

Happy New Year!!
