About Me

My husband and I have been TTC for a long time and due to my endometriosis, it seemed like it was never going to happen. ALL last year, instead of ovulating, my body would just create and rupture cysts on my right ovary. In Dec I had a LARGE cyst, that would not rupture, removed and had most of the endo, that she could get to, removed. She then put me on a monthly shot treatment that induced me into menopause. I took my last shot March 5th and didn't start my new cycle until May 21st. I used a fertility monitor to see when I would ovulate and it peaked on CD 15 which means I ovulated on CD 16. We didn't think that we'd succeed the first try since the surgery and treatment, but God has been SO good and blessed us with a surprise. We are beyond stoked and can't wait to meet this beautiful angel that we've waited so long for. This will truly be a miracle baby.

Baby Update: It's a BOY and he's extremely active and measuring above average already!! I really hope he doesn't meet or pass my birth weight! I still hold the record in my family for the biggest baby, and I really don't want to beat it. LOL!

We decided on the name Tristan James and we can't wait to meet him and see his gorgeous face!

Another Update: My last ultrasound at 28 weeks predicted that Tristan will arrive February 11th because he's getting so big so fast. DH is predicting last week of Jan or first week of Feb. Guess we'll see!! We're getting close!!! :-D

Update: So I'm past my original due date BUT they are inducing me this Sunday. YAY!! There's an end in sight! Can't wait to hold my son!

My Birth Plan

I plan to have my baby in a hospital. I have changed my mind to having a drug-free birth, after all. We, as in my midwife, my mom, and I, have decided that it would be better for my health if I avoided an epidural and just had Tristan naturally. I would love to have him at home in our tub, but since he's my first child, a hospital seems to be the safest bet, even if it is on base. I plan to have just my DH and mom there and I'm going to try different birthing positions, hypno-birthing, and I'm going to teach my husband different massage techniques to use on me to help with pain and progression. I refuse to give in to pain meds and I've done TONS of research to help me get ready for the big day. I get more excited the closer we get. Here's to a healthy natural birth!!

Hi,I also have endo and was diagnosed when i was 21. Tried to get pregnant for 3 yrs and then had some investigations done and they found it,have battled with it ever since! On the positive side after my first surgery i was induced into early menopause for a year to try and shrink the endo they couldnt get meanwhile i got married and decided i would like to try for a baby right away,i got pregnant on my honeymoon and my beautiful daughter was born a few months before our first wedding anniversary! I waited 4 yrs then decided to try again had a coil fitted throughout this time,bang pregnant again,another daughter and a year after i had her i got pregnant again this time i had a boy. I am currently pregnant with my 4th baby(i had a miscarriage inbetween)and i Thank God every day for my children,the children i was told i might never have because of this horrible and painful disease. I wish you all the luck in the world!xxoo

I'm so happy your husband is back safe with you. My first husband was over seas on deployment in Iraq for a year and it was very hard. I had a miscarriage while he was away and when he came back he had changed in ways that I tried to help and support, but couldn't. So if you ever do need to talk, I come from a military family and would be more than happy to lend my ear.

I also can't believe this is happening. I'm so excited. I think the doppler is an awesome idea and as I said, I've used my sonoline B and found the heartbeat a few times now. Some days are a bust and I've found a full bladder helps.

I haven't had many cravings though I will say a lot of food tastes AMAZING right now. Like when I eat things I like, they taste like someone threw in something a little extra special!!! But now I kind of want devil eggs....
