I’m alive!

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

  2. So happy for you!!! Take care of that new little one you are carrying. Also your boy is just adorable. Keep blogging… Don’t let judgy people affect you. Screw em! Lol. Xo

  3. I am over joyed for your naturally conceived baby boy! I always say I bought 2 and got 2 for free because we had help conceiving the first two and had 2 surprising pregnancies afterwards! Congratulations! And as for the moms who give their options on your parenting, I feel that every parent has a choice to represent their religious, personal, or moral beliefs as they see fit. As long as the child is not in danger, then it is the the right of the parent to do as they wish.

  4. What the what??? Congratulations Lisa! What a blessing to just get pregnant after all the shenanigans you had to deal with the first time!. Someone is smiling down at you. So glad you’re doing well. I’ve also dropped off of the blogosphere, for many of the same reasons you have. Glad to get n update from you though. Take care of yourself and those sweet little boys!

  5. Lisa!! I’m so happy you updated! What amazing news that you are expecting again!! Congratulations!!! Graham is getting so big too and is sooo handsome!! You are going to have your hands full with two boys πŸ˜‰ It melts my heart to hear that everything turned out happily for you. I, for one, would love to hear your “boring” mommy stories! Lots of love to you and your beautiful growing family!!

  6. Yeah! So exciting to hear you are having another precious boy! I love reading your updates and have been following you for years from the ttw website. Thanks for the update and hope to hear more. πŸ™‚

  7. I’m just a random reader and I’ve checked in from time to time to see if you updated. I’m glad you did and I’m glad you’re happy! Graham is adorable, and congratulations on your pregnancy! That’s just wonderful news. πŸ™‚

  8. I thought that bloglovin just wasn’t showing me your posts! Glad all is well and Graham is doing so well. A big congratulations to you all on the pregnancy how amazing for you xx

  9. Wow! Graham is completely adorable, and I’m so amazed and happy to hear your pregnancy news! I’m glad to ‘see’ you again!

  10. So happy to hear Graham is growing like a weed and that you’re expecting again! What a wonderful surprise after everything you have overcome! Blessings on you and your family your belly grows. And as for mommy blogs, I honestly try to avoid them at all costs because they can get so judgmental and catty, so I hope that yours will continue to be what it has been–a source of strength and now an even more amazing story of triumph over huge obstacles for those who are still struggling.

  11. Wow! So glad I happened to check in on you! Graham is so handsome! I’m amazed that you are pregnant and so pleased for you! I’m wondering–did you do the immune protocol again with this pregnancy? Prednisone? Progesterone? Levonox? Etc.?? Just wondering if this pregnancy is TOTALLY different or if you supported it with the same protocol you used with Graham. XOXO

  12. So happy to hear all is well (notyet) from tww. We got pg around the same time. My boy came 5 weeks early and is now 11months this weekend! He’s doing great as well congrats on your new littles.
