New Year – New Start

30 Dec

Well, 2011, it’s time we part ways. You’ve been as sucky as you’ve been great. I’ve both loved and hated you. But, now I’m ready to move on to greener pastures.

2011 and I, as you can tell, had a love/hate relationship. The year started off pretty crappy – everyone I knew was getting pregnant just by looking at their significant other and I couldn’t get pregnant no matter how hard I tried. I met my fertility specialist Dr. M and got what I thought was good news. Then, after B’s tests, we found out we had another set back on the road to babyville. The first half of the year was filled with doctor’s appointments and disappointments. Oh, and add B getting laid off to the mix. Good stuff.

May 1 rolls around. B and I head to the beach to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. We decide to take the year off of TTC. It was getting to be too much and was really effecting our new marriage.

Enter the YEAR OF FUN! After deciding to take the year off, we had a ton of fun. We went to his parent’s lake house almost every weekend. We took a trip to the beach with my family. We even planned a trip to San Francisco in September for my 28 birthday. Over the summer all the babies were born and all I could feel was love for these little babies and happiness for my friends and loved ones.

In November, as you know, we decided to jump back on the baby train earlier than expected and had yet another set back. After some researching of the insurance company and some prayer, we decided to go ahead and pay the 6k and fight it after the fact. I’m fairly certain we have a great shot at winning it and getting paid back. And, in the grand scheme of things, 6k is a small price to pay for finally being able to have a baby.

So, I’m ready for 2012. I’m sure there will be some setbacks and some hard times. But, if I’ve learned anything from 2011 it’s that everything will work out exactly how it’s supposed to. There’s a plan out there for me, and B, and us – even if we’re unsure of exactly what it is.

Here’s some photos in a look back at our year!
