Thankful

After that last post that I had to get out of the way I am happy to now write a much needed THANKFUL post! My oh my I have so much to be thankful for.  Ryan and I had a wonderful night at a B&B (more on that later) and have been able to spend all day today together.  I cant say enough how much I love that man. He is the absolute best thing. He makes me laugh like no other. geesh. Okay enough about the lovey, dovey, gag me kind of stuff :)

Today I am THANKFUL for the wonderful phlebotomist that drew my blood today. I seriously didn't even feel a poke!  She was so sweet and got it over with fast. THANKFUL much!

I paid a little visit to my doctor today because I didn't ovulate this last month.  and like you might remember the month before I ovulated very late (we are thinking it was probably a false positive because it was so late). Anywho... So today I went to get my blood drawn to test my progesterone levels.  We will get the results tomorrow and find out if Ill be put on clomid (medication to induce ovulate).  Keeping my fingers crossed for... well anything. I don't care.  Just as long as it helps us get to a point where we can implant again.

You take Clomid and you could get TWINS!!! (I had to take it with both of my pregnancies and I have two sets of twins now!). Good luck!

I'm in school for phlebotomy right now so I completely understand about getting poked! Every Monday and Wednesday I get stuck/stick others from 8am-12pm...so I, too, am thankful for phlebotomists (in-training) that don't hurt :)

Praying you get good results tomorrow and a sweet baby in your belly SOON!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Having been on the clomid roller coaster more times than I can count, it's no fun. My huband calls it the monster drug because it makes me this crazy, psycho person. Hopefully you won't need it!!!

Keeping my fingers crossed for you!! My husband and I have been trying to have another baby for 11 months now, very frustrating that it is taking so long to conceive. About a week ago, after talking to my Doctor it became clear that I am not ovulating regularly. I just started clomid and am nervous that I still won't be able to get pregnant! I hope for the best for you and Ryan!

Kendra, I have been visiting your blog for quite some time now, but I've never felt that I had anything inspiring to say to you. I read your Anonymous post and had to scroll down to the Q&A post and read the comments to find out what was being said. I honestly could NOT believe what I was reading. Who would think it's okay to say any of those hurtful, rude, judgmental or just plain out of line comments? I find your story heartbreaking, inspiring, strengthening, and brave. You are so strong to say so much openly. I admire you and your courage. You have had to face many difficulties that when I read, I realize that my difficulties aren't so big. MRW is adorable and I love seeing pictures of her. The Festival of Trees is coming up and whenever I see a commercial for it, I think of your family and the beautiful MRW tree. Your story is truly inspiring and I wish you the best of luck in growing your family.

I did the Clomid with IUI when we suffered secondary infertility. It isn't so bad. I agree anything to get you to that goal is worth the try. Praying for you!

Hi Kendra, I usually don't comment, but am an avid reader. I used to work at AE and I will never forget the impact you had on me. It may have seemed like an insignificant conversation for you, but 3 years ago I had had a miscarriage and was devastated and you came up to me, without knowing me and told me part of your story at that time and it helped me so much. Having someone I could relate to. Your blog does that for me now and many others I'm sure. You've always had a way of doing that and I'm so happy for all the people you're helping with your blog. Thank you for writing!

So glad you had such a wonderful anniversary! Honestly, I can't wait to hear about it! I love to see you happy :)

I have been following your blog for some time now, started my own, but can't seem to find time to do it- maybe it will be a new years resolution.

I admire your strength. I admire the person you are and the decisions you and your husband have had to make- well I admire those too. You make me kiss my kids more and show more patience toward them. Your story reminds me daily that I don't know what tomorrow holds and to live every day like I don't have tomorrow. I kiss my husband goodbye even if I'd like to ring his neck, I try never to leave angry. I dont know when my last anything will be so because of you, I'd like to think I'm a better mommy to my kids.

I talked to my husband about you and SMARD and the chances of two random people who fall in love, desperately want a child, and then realize they are both carriers of this horrible, deadly disease- which there is no cure for. It is an absolute blow to the gut. I could not walk in your shoes for one day even if I tried. The decisions and actions you make are your own. I think it's fabulous that your husband is so selfless to give you the chance to carry your own child that may not be biologically his, but it will be his because God will give you this child you have so desperately been wanting. This I know to be true. He always gives us the desires of our heart- only on his time though.

My heart aches for the nasty comments that people send your way. It's not fair that people are so nasty and inconsiderate of others feelings.

I just want you to know that I am crossing my fingers for a little miracle for you and Ryan. I used clomid because I couldn't ovulate and I got pregnant the first time around- I hope this is the case for you :) I pray that god blesses you ten fold and know that what you have been through and the life Mckenzie had/has is still touching the lives of others- especially me.

Continue to be the strong woman God made you to be. You are a strong, admiral woman in my eyes. Thank you for sharing your story.

I know this comment is a little late on the whole "anonymous" thing. When I saw that you were allowing Q&A, I was hoping that people wouldn't be tacky and ask insensitive questions. I had no idea! I just want to say that it made me really sad that you had to spend even an ounce of energy responding to those ignorant remarks. That person didn't deserve even a second thought. Honestly, who actually can come up with that garbage? What is wrong with people? Your words are very inspiring. I admire your faith in God. The new child that you will have soon will be very lucky to have a mother like you. God bless. I will pray that you will be blessed with a baby. What a lucky little baby he or she will be!

It hurts my heart that people could be so judgmental and awful. Especially to someone who has been through so much and is still right in the middle of the trial. It is disgusting. We are supposed to help and uplift each other through the hard times. I hate that they said that. You are amazing and strong and doing what is best for your family. What impossible decisions you've had to make. Don't let people get to you. You and Ryan are phenomenal people!
