Thank Goodness for Silver-linings...

This post is a little TMI, so if you don't think you can handle a little infertility talk....please stop reading HERE!!!





I am in Houston visiting my family and friends for a long weekend. The weather here is NICE...a cold front blew in right before I got here, so we sat outside by the chimenea and admired my parent's yard. We had my all time favorite meal...GUMBO (dad-style) and we invited my grandparents and my great-grandfather over too. Here is my mom, sister, Mother , Pawpaw (my great-grandfather) and I enjoying the weather and each other...



This was only the FIRST night and I am sure we will have many more fun times while I'm here.

EXCEPT....

This is the TMI part if you want to turn back now!!!

I am ovulating AND my husband is back at home in Florida! Can you say FRUSTRATING!!!! I left for Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday, came to Houston on Friday, and will not be going back home until the following Tuesday. So it looks as if the month of October is a bust :(

On the bright side, I am so thankful that our Home Study will be coming up soon...November 13th!!! Thank goodness for silver-linings :)

I SO know that feeling. It sucks. But I would always try and say "well God, I guess not this month". And after a few days it will HOPEFULLY become easier to accept and start hoping for next month!!

I am so excited about your new journey. Are you guys looking domestic or international?

Still praying for ALL your options. Praying He blesses you abundantly!!

Looks like you are having a great time with your family. There is always next month and I am looking forward to hearing more about your adoption process.

Enjoy yourself and relax!

Have been following your blog for quite a while and, even though I'm sad that you're not pregnant yet, I am so excited that you've decided to persue adoption. Our first grandchild is adopted and I honestly don't know what we'd do with out her. She's such a blessing to our family. She now has a little sister and another one on the way (both biological) but when someone asks my husband which of his grandchildren is adopted, "He says 'one of them is, but I don't remember which one.'" Here is a web site that is really good. http://www.adoptioninfosvcs.com/
They aren't an adoption agency but were really helpful in offering advice, guidance, suggestions, etc. to our son and daughter-in-law. I will pray for God to bless you with the desires of your heart. Linda

I am so hoping that you will get pregnant soon! I'm so sorry that your ovulation time came when your apart! I've always lucked out so far, but my problem is, I'm not even sure IF I'm ovulating. But there is always a possiblity of it for me. Hopefully you will be blessed with a wonderful Chrismas surprise!!!

That is so exciting that you are starting the adoption journey. There is a life out there who needs love, and a good home. I think that is such wonderful thing to pursue.

I echo Kendra. I know that feeling. It does stink. But just know you are covered in prayer sweet friend!

The first time I was put on Femara and had my monthly ultrasound my dr. told me to call my husband and tell him to meet me at home so we could make a baby since I was ovulating that day. The horrible part was that my husband was in the next state at a sales conference and would be staying overnight. I remember being so upset about it.
