Cute Little Boy Pictured Overload!!! (And an update!)

I'm working super hard to get some regularity with my blog posts...2 in a row? That's a win in my book! :)

So, if you've read any of my posts in the past, you might know that Jason and I have been trying to have another baby. We are looking at 22 months right now. We weren't expecting to have any trouble getting pregnant. We got pregnant with both boys so quickly, that we assumed that it would always be like that. I've been struggling with letting go. It's hard for me to not want things to happen in my own time, and not God's time. But, I've finally hit a point where I feel better. I'm more comfortable with the wait. And I have a wonderful experience at Confession to thank for that.

We'd been to the doctor about 3 months ago. He did some blood tests and ruled out certain, obvious problems. He told me that he wanted me to continue using ovulation predictor kits and if we weren't pregnant in another 2 cycles, to come back. So I did last week.

I mentioned that Jason had brought home a booklet about infertility for me to read (always a bad idea as I'm one of those hypochondriac-types who Googles and then finds herself having all the symptoms), and it talked about scar tissue causing problems. I scar very badly, often hypertrophic scars (which I had always thought it was actually keloid until I researched to find a link for this! Who knew??). My doctor said that it was definitely a possibility and that it was going to be our next step. So, next week I'm going to have a procedure done which will show the doctor if my tubes are blocked by scar tissue, some other reason, or if everything looks healthy. If everything actually looks good, the only next step is to see an infertility specialist. We will cross that bridge later. Right now I'm trying to focus on this test.

So please pray for us, for me, for the doctor. It's just a test, and there's technically nothing to worry about, but I am. 

***the random sets of pictures are just because I realized that I have so many pictures that are often not shared anywhere else, and it is so fun to look at the boys growing up!***


  1. So many prayers!!!

    And your boys. Holy cuteness, Batman!!

    1. Thank you!! The test had to be rescheduled and it will actually be tomorrow. I'm trying not to be nervous.
