Another year older.

My birthday was May 14. DH's was May 18. We had an amazing time in Palm Springs. His parents came along, and I helped coordinate his birth mother and her husband surprising him there! I never wanted to leave! We all agreed me must plan another trip soon.

Today I'm on Cycle Day 9 (yes, that means AF showed up on our vacation!)
This is another Clomid cycle. Took it cd 3-7 this time. DH is taking the Maca Root, and we plan to BD every other day starting today until cd 21. Let's hope our schedules permit!

Turning 29 was bitter-sweet. I sobbed on my birthday realizing this is the last year in my 20's and those years are never coming back. I realized a lot of goals were never met. I realized my body is no where near where I want it to be and most of my 20's were spent being FAT. This kicked me so hard--that I decided to cut out all breads and starches, all sweets, and get back to the gym after years of not going. My first night at the gym I cycled 11 miles uphill in 31 minutes. For me that's insane! I've been stuck at a weight plateau for well over 6 months now...gaining a couple, losing a couple...and I'm tired of it!

I hope this last year in my 20's brings tons of changes, and joy. I'm gonna ROCK my 30's!!!

Birth/Step Mother's Day

Yesterday I had the opportunity to spend the entire day with my husband and sweet stepson. We called it step mother's day and birth mother's day.

We started the morning super early with breakfast in our jammies at IHOP! Then we came home and packed up the car and spent the rest of the day at Mother's Beach which also has a playground. I had soooo much fun! After we left we drove around while the little man took a nap and wound up at a really neat store I've been wanting to go to. The boys picked out a new purse/backpack for me. I love it :) We then came home and had to send the lil man home so he could be with his momma for Mother's Day.
Then I curled my hair and DH took me out to an AMAZING Greek restaurant (he sure knows me well!) and then we spent the rest of the night walking around DOWNTOWN DISNEY!!!

I'm grateful I was able to celebrate yesterday with the boys, I'm trying my darnedest to keep my chin up today. My heavenly father comforts me in ways that get me through.

I'm praying for each of us still trying for miracles, those with mothers in heaven, those with angel babies up above. May you all find peace, joy, and love today.

Here's a recap of yesterday!

On a separate note:

I'm on cycle day 26-- nothing terribly unique about this cycle. Moods are kind of up and down more often. Slightly more gassy. I've learned over the years to not get so I will probably wait to test till after my vacation next weekend! (My birthday is in two days and hubby's is in six days so we are running away to Palm Springs for the weekend with his parents! SOOOO excited!)

Cycle Ticker!
