6 Months!

I made it! I actually questioned that I would some days. I have to say I cant believe I am here...The other day Jack and I were driving in the car and he said "I cant believe were expecting a little girl" was soo cute. I said trust me, neither can I.

When you go through infertility it wipes away all those hopes and dreams. I know a lot of people say they will always be infertile and I too always will consider myself part of that infertility club but, don't hate me for saying so (this is just how I, personally feel)I feel like I am so blessed to be where I am that I don't think about it much anymore...its in the past and I will keep it there. It doesn't mean that I would ever say or do anything to make an infertile person feel less I'm just saying that my infertility is now in the past and I would like to keep it like that.
We only really ever planned on having one child so I'm not worried about the future of getting pregnant. I do know that being infertile has helped me help a lot of people and if that is something I can share into the future then in the end I will feel that it was all worth it. Well...worth it now of course when she kicks and worth it when we see her beautiful face for the first time. She will be the light of our life and for that, infertility, I am thankful. You do learn to appreciate things I think a little that selfish or rude to say? I think sometimes people think I am nuts to always be touching my stomach or to always be referring to her as if she was here but I cant help it after everything. She truly is our little miracle.

I do hope and have faith that all who read this that have not made it to their miracle quite yet will get there. Whether it be by IUI, IVF, Adoption, Surrogacy, Donor Eggs etc. It does take a lot out of you and there will be a lot of times where you feel like this is it and you can't possibly go on longer, but you do, and it will happen when you least expect it too. Remember it took me 2.5 years to get here and there were plenty of times that I wanted to quit and did..but I always went back, because in the end I knew this is where I wanted to be.

With that said, here are some 6 month pictures of me.

  1. Hey!! Thanks SO much for your comment on our blog as well as your great ideas! I really do appreciate it!

  2. Look at that adorable baby belly!!! So happy for you!

  3. your belly is absolutely adorable

  4. Can you believe 6 months has gone by already?! Crazy!!! It is definitely NOT selfish or rude to say that this process would make someone more appreciative of what they've got. It's the same with anything - the harder you have to work & the more roadblocks you face make the end result that much more meaningful because you had to put your all into it, and you have a right to be proud of what you've accomplished!!!

    Here's to the home stretch!!!

    BTW- you look great!

  5. Congrats for making this far!

    My hubby and I have decided we will never do the drugs or tests...

    so who knows how long we will be as we are!

    So far we've known each other 7 years, married for 5 and pulled the goalie a year ago.

  6. Hi Baby Nola!

    Oh Melissa, your belly is so cute. You have a perfect 6 mo mama belly bump.

    I'm so glad you are able to reconcile your infertility past and be thankful for the struggle you went through to get to here.

    I love that we are only 15 days apart, I can't wait until the babies are here!

    Love you!

  7. You look fantastic! :) Glad to hear you are doing so well! I can't believe we are in the home stretch!!

  8. Congrats on 6 months how exciting!
