Baby Steps: Lucky 13 and Positive Thinking – It’s almost time!

I was looking back at posts I wrote last December and I can’t believe how fast and far we’ve come in only one year!  I am so grateful and thankful for all of the ups and downs we went through!  It was a year ago when I found out I had PCOS and started on my journey of making myself healthier before our first {luckily successful} IUI.  AMAZING!


I then read another post about my word of the year for 2013: Positive.  I chose that word because I was getting used to the word negative.  Every pregnancy test we took was negative, every blood test I took for any kind of check up wasn’t what we needed it to be, and I had started to become sad and felt so negative.  13 is one of my favorite numbers, so I took it that 2013 would be my lucky year and we would have a positive!  Man did we ever!!!!  Finally, after our IUI a pregnancy test was positive even when the doctor swore we were had a miscarriage {I still can’t believe that I am having that same baby, I never had to say goodbye}, I refused to think negatively and what happened…. the final blood work came back miraculously positive {something the doctor told me he had never seen before} after everything was moving negatively at first.


My little baby girl will be born in lucky 2013 and she is everything positive!  She made it through what seemed to be a miscarriage, then a single vessel artery, and now we got notice that the amniotic fluid is lower than expected {we are being monitored twice a week}, but this kid is the biggest trooper!  I have already learned so much from her, she is my proof that I always need to encompass positive thinking!

    You always know how to express what you are feeling. It comes out so genuine and honest, and when I grow up I want to be like you. So waiting impatiently for this lucky and much loved baby girl to arrive!!! Tyler can’t wait to meet his future wife!!! 😉
