The title says it all! If I thought fertility for 6 years was tough, I'm here to say that actually being pregnant is not easy either (which I'm sure parenthood will be the hardest task of our lives). I know that each individual pregnancy is different, but so far this one for me has been no piece of cake. I'm forever grateful and even more so excited for what's to come, but boy I wish I had more energy and more appetite. I've been sick.....really sick, and the thought of food most days makes my stomach turn, and what I can get down half the time seems to come back up. Every single little bit of it is all worth it though.
We've saw our OB Doctor for the first time last week, and everything is looking good with the baby which we're thrilled about. Today we're 11 weeks and 4 days, still taking it day to day.
Wish I had more to report, but I can say that we're really looking forward to starting our second trimester in just a few short days.
Much love and until next time....XO
Me In A Nutshell
My name is Kristina and I'm 37. Originally I'm a Southern CA girl, and I'm now living in the "burbs" of Chicago. I love my son, my husband, my family, my fur babies, and my wonderful friends. I love wine, love to relax, love to have a good time, I'm a little adventurous, love to people watch, and I'm always down for a last minute road trip to virtually anywhere. I'm obsessed with the smell of racing fuel...weird I know - and fresh cut grass! I love to be home, but hate to sit at the house. If I'm excited I get pretty random - sometimes I talk about multiple subjects at once - I'll admit it's probably hard to keep up. My husband and I battled infertility for 5 years before having a successful pregnancy - our son Colton Charles was born September 30th, 2016, Although we have had success with the birth of Colton, our battle still continues with infertility. I've learned it's a wonderful & beautiful thing to share with others the journey that we've walked in the world of infertility. Welcome to our story.
