Expanding the Family

After being married for a year, Glen and I decided it was time to try and expand our family. I went to my doctor to make sure we were good to go only to have my yearly pap test come back abnormal. This was a complete shock to us. So after visiting with my doctor he felt he needed to do a small surgery. Early November 2006 I went in for this surgery and found out from the results everything was fine. The doctor did tell us to wait at least 5-6 months before trying to get pregnant. May 2007 came and we were set to go - plus this was my 30th birthday month! After a few months of trying with no luck I went to a new OB/GYN to see if he had any "pointers" for us. He did some blood work, made me start charting my BBT and said to come back in a few months. A few months later, he reviewed my charts and came to the conclusion that I was not ovulating. He then prescribed me the fertility med Clomid. I took Clomid for 3 months with no luck. Then he sent me in to have an HSG test to make sure my tubes were not blocked. The HSG test came back fine, nothing was wrong with my tubes. So, he was about to send me on to a Reproductive Endocrinologist when suddenly we found out I was pregnant that month after having the HSG test and not taking any fertility meds!!! We were so surprised and couldn't have been happier. Our dreams of having a family were finally coming true.

We also expanded our family with the addition of Ramsey, our crazy dog! Ramsey came into our life in October 2007. Ramsey is the cutest dog you will ever meet and the only dog that I know that NEVER lays down to rest. She definitely has been a great addition to our life and household.
