Another long break means a lot of information and/or events that kept me too busy to write. But here I am; ready to talk about it...The good, the bad, the incredibly frustrating!
We marked our 4th anniversary of our first miscarriage on December 16th and I can't help, but to ask one question. Why? I want a baby, but I don't want to go through another miscarriage.
I'm sitting here this morning looking out at the mountains and typing away catch-up posts for the coming days and weeks. Really, I've just been trying to pass the last 70 minutes before I need to get ready for our first Infertility Specialist appointment and realized that the last journey update was 26 days ago. … Continue reading Another Pregnancy, Another Miscarriage | A New Appointment

Our first doctor appointment was pretty positive and pretty overwhelming. We received more information that we could've imagined and knew what to do with and were given a map of what will happen next. (Finally a real, check-the-boxes plan!) Now, we just need to decide what that next step will actually be: IVF or a different doctor.
After 3 miscarriages, you would think that I'd have experienced a complication or two, but I haven't (luckily)...until now. Thank you miscarriage #4, I so appreciate that (hint of sarcasm)! Luckily, there were some answers and a little silver lining.
I'm finally getting around to writing out how the September Shelf Shopping Challenge ended. Spoiler Alert: We hit our goal! Leave with only snacks on our trip!
