Surgery Went Well!!

I'll start this off with the best news! My husband's surgery went well! Dr. Lanasa said that my husband did great and he can tell that he followed everything he told him to do. That's my baby!! I'm so proud of him! I know he was so nervous this morning. But I mean, who isn't nervous about going under anesthesia? I was extremely nervous too, but I just couldn't let it show and have it upset him more. I'm so relieved that he is out of surgery (he's awake in the recovery room as I type). I feel so blessed that he is okay! I spoke with Dr. Lanasa a few moments ago and here is the synopsis:

My husband can't drive for 5 days and he has some pain medicine to help with any discomfort he may have. He will have a 2 inch scar where they made the incision but it will heal within a few weeks and the best news is ---- he can have sex in about 5-7 days, or whenever he is ready. I thought we would have to wait much longer, and I'm so happy that I'll be able…

It's Almost Time....

Happy Monday, y'all! This week is going to be a great week, I can already tell. First off, I'm so excited that my husband is finally having his surgery this week. Thursday afternoon he goes in for his pre-op and Friday morning is his surgery. I can't describe how big of a deal this is. I almost feel as if *this* is our turning point. We have been through so much, and it has all led up to this. We have been trying for a child for over 3 years. We have lost two pregnancies and have suffered the let down of one failed insemination. We have both been to countless fertility appointments and have mulled over so many different fertility "game plans". We have both given every ounce of our blood, sweat and tears to try and have a child together. We have hit so many speed bumps along the way and I truly feel that this surgery may be the answer to both of our prayers.

Every option that we have tried so far always brought us back to square one. I feel that with this surgery,…

Well Hello There Strangers!

Y'all, I can't believe that it's been almost a month since I last wrote to you! Time flies when you're having fun. Or rather, when there's nothing to write about! My hubby and I are patiently waiting for his surgery at the end of May. It cannot come soon enough! So there hasn't been much on the fertility front to write about! It's so weird how when you aren't in the muck of it all, how your focus changes. 
Instead of being solely focused on making a baby, I have been focused on other areas of my life as well. I wish I could say one of those was weight loss. Ha! Remember how I said this "break" would give me more time to lose weight and become more healthy? Well, I talk a big game! I have been eating better, and I go through phases where I get on a big workout kick. But for the most part, I haven't been trying too hard. I have, however, become more spiritual during all of this. That is one area that I am becoming more and more focused on. …
