I took quite a hiatus from the blogging world! Part of that is not having time, and if I’m being honest, I just haven’t felt like writing or commenting. The longer I was away, the more behind I got on all of your blogs. I plan on checking in to see how everyone is doing! Please say hi if you’re reading this (whether you’re a blogger, follower, or random reader)! Is anyone still reading, lol?
So I guess now that I’m content, I don’t have much to write about? I’m definitely happy, but life still throws lemons at me now and then. When you have a baby and stop fertility treatments, it doesn’t mean you live happily ever after or never have a problem ever again. But my goodness, it is good to be out of the trenches. I will never forget what that was like. My heart still breaks constantly for those couples still fighting the good fight.
But anyway, I guess I had more to blog about when I was in pain and dealing with the drama and ups and downs of infertility. It’s weird writing about being a mom. I’m not particularly witty, funny, or unique. So I don’t want to bore you all. Plus, I know it’s hard to relate to mom blogs when you’re TTC. I also can’t deal with the criticism and judgement that moms inflict on other moms. It’s just been easier for me to stay in my happy cocoon. 🙂
My son, Graham, is 9 months old! He is such a sweet, funny, happy, silly boy! I live for his smiles and giggles. He says “dada”, “baba”, and sometimes “hi” or “hey”. He is fascinated with our 3 cats. I’m pretty sure he knows who they are better than he knows who mommy and daddy are! He’s not crawling yet, but he gets around really good by rolling around the room! Graham is healthy and growing! He’s not such a peanut anymore!
If you’ve read this far, I have some exciting and rather unbelievable news! I am 18 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby boy! He was conceived totally naturally. I have no idea how that happened…I thought that was like a mythical tale you only read about. But it’s really happening to me! I still don’t believe it though. The pregnancy is going extremely well. I still carry around infertility/loss fears, but overall I feel great. I am so grateful to experience this again!! Take that, doctors!
I can’t promise to update often or check in on you guys. I apologize for that. I hope to be around a little bit more. We are probably going to be moving before new baby boy comes along, so that will be a big task! I’m so excited for what the future holds. 🙂

Thinking about you any updates?
Miss you Lisa! You story of a 2nd little one gives me so much hope. We have officially had 10 early losses now, quite disheartening some days. I hope that life finds you well!
Just going through my blog list and thought I’d say “hi” and hope everything is well with you. Hoping all went well with your pregnancy and birth and that your family is thriving. Would love to hear how things are going but understand if you have closed your blogging chapter.
Ahhh Lisa, massive congratulations. I use to follow you on the TTC boards and followed you;re journey. I guess when you get you’re happy ending things have to change a bit, wee ones will always come first (I’ve got 2 little girls now). Anyway, just thinking about you and did a quick google search and up you pop, and by george…you’ve done it again…massive congratulations, and im guessing you must be due around now? Hope everything goes well and you all enjoy your new addition, I bet Graham will love having a little buddy.
I might look like a crazy blogger friend but thinking and praying for you. Hope life finds you well! ♡
Just wondering if we could expect a tiny update? 😬
