Thank YOU!

Oh my goodness! I never expected to get so many wonderful comments. Thank you all so much for the love and kind words. They mean more than you know. I am definitely taking this one better than the last, but it still gets to me sometimes and I have to take a moment.

I did go see my Doctor today and they did a pregnancy test and confirmed what I already knew. She did a pelvic exam and a pap-smear since I hadn't had one in a year. She talked to us about my history and all that jazz, and then she said they have an infertility specialist that comes into the office every Wednesday, and if I wanted I could see him. He will basically discuss my options as far as tests to do to determine what is causing my body to not keep the fertilized eggs. Whether it be chromosomal issues or a thyroid issue or whatever else. And he will slao suggest the best options to help us get pregnant and keep it. (since we seem to have problems with both) So I see him next Wednesday. They may have to wait to do tests though, because I still have the pregnancy hormone in my blood, so that could cause conflicting results, I guess? But anyway it will be nice to know what is going on after 2 1/2 years.

In other news: I changed my major. To something I think I will actually use and enjoy, not that cooking wouldn't be something I would use, but I would probably never make a career out of it. So dun dat dat dahhhhh:::::: Psychology. Yep. I am going into Psychology. I will get a 4 year degree and maybe go on to get a PHD. who knows. But what I want to do with it for now, is become a High School counselor. So school will keep me busy at least until I have a baby, whenever that may be, and when I do I will take one semester off to have the baby, and then figure it out as it comes. But I will not quit, I assure you. Moms go to school and raise kids all the time. I am sure I am strong enough to do it. And I really want this for myself. I am already very excited about this coming semester. Tyler and I have a class together (that we can actually go to together) I have class from 9am-1pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. and Lucy is in Daycare from 8:30am-2:30pm those days. I just feel like I can breathe again, and things are finally getting settled after a horrible year. We are happy, and organized, and love it here. We also recognize the daily blessings we receive, and have so much faith that we will add to our family some day. But for now Lucy is such a joy and keeps us laughing and on our toes!

Thanks again! (and feel free to comment like that more often ;)

I love your plan. I think you'll be a fabulous high school councilor. Its a great career with a family. You get the same days off as your kids most the time. (Ha, teachers meetings a exception). Best wishes as you continue your education this semester! Just remember H.F. knows you and your desires to have more children!
