My journey dealing with secondary infertility in this crazy fertile world.

Guess who made my day...

I am taking the title of "worst blogger ever" away from in search of morning sickness

I am not even sure why I haven't blogged because I am on this darn computer reading all of your blogs everyday for hours. I am just in a weird place, but it is a good place. I hate to admit that I still have fear, but it is just my personality. I am also getting excited though. I still love doctors appointments and feel like each one is like a little goal to work towards. Next week is my dreaded GD test and rhogam shot.

I am almost 26 weeks pregnant and happy to be entering the 3rd trimester. I have been suffereing from an umbillical hernia that has been getting larger as my belly does. That is probably my biggest complaint, so I am not really complaining. I know it could be worse.

I got the nicest honor from Elaine and it kicked my butt into gear because I was so appreciative of her thinking of me. :)

Elaine gave me the "you made my day award" and if I knew how to link to the pic of it I would. I don't know how, but I still want to pass the award along to a few other fellow bloggers who make my day on a daily basis!

First of all....Elaine! She is the one who got me to blog on this site. It is scary to me how much we have in common! She is the sweetest person and has been in my prayers for so long. She has not been successful in pregnancy YET, but has recently made the decision to foster a child. She even has the possibility of adopting. I continue to cherish her friendship and look forward to following her journey!

Next is Farah. She is several weeks ahead of me in her own pregnancy and I look forward to reading her blog to see what is in store for me. She is also a great commenter! She has had many ups and downs but as she nears the end of her pregnancy it seems everything is going great. I am so excited for her.

I am so thrilled that Amanda is now pregnant and with twins to add to the excitement. She is unfortunately very sick right now, but it is something I can relate to. I am hoping she is better soon!

Finally, I give the award to searching for hope. She is a super commenter as well. I feel for her as life has been rough on her recently, especially with her health. Although she is not currently TTC, her life has revolved around babies and wanting one. I pray that her prayers will one day be answered!

There are certainly other blogs I read, but I feel most connected to these blogs. You all make my day as you let me into a little bit of your life through your writing.

Thanks for sharing! Hugs to you all!!!

Aren't you a sweet girl!!

I am so sorry that fear still looms over. I am not sure that goes away .... ever. It gets less and less for me, then sneaks back in.

I am glad to hear that you are a t26 weeks! congrats!

I am so glad to hear that you are doing well and that your little jelly bean is growing so well. Hope that all the sickness has left your home for a while! Been thinking of you often!

Wow, 26 weeks already... That's so exciting! Between 26-28 weeks is when I start feeling secure in that the kiddo will do well. Still would have a long NICU stay, but has an excellent chance. That's great news! :)

GL with the sugar drink and the shot. Icky things but neccessary.

Thank you so much for the award! You are far too sweet! I'm glad to see you back and posting. :)

Thank you so much for the mention!

When did you start to feel better? How did you manage to eat? Tricare denied paying for the pump, so right now I've got to switch from Tricare standard to Tricare prime. Then they'll refer me to MUSC (local wonderful teaching hospital) due to the HG and the twins. But there's still no guarantee that I'll ever get the pump. Grrrr

Wow... This was so sweet to read. Don't know how your blog dropped off my radar, but glad to know things are progressing well in your 3rd tri!

You can take the title away from me any day. :) Doing a covert IVF cycle is pretty darn bad if you ask me.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!!!
