Our Story

 Our story began July 21, 2004 when Matt and I met and began dating. I was a junior in high school (16) and he was finishing his associates degree (21). We dated until I finished high school in 2006. We got engaged and married 9/22/07. Shortly before we were married, I started noticing issues with my reproductive system. The doctor I saw was horrible and told me that my only problem was I was overweight and there was nothing that could be done. I was 19 and devastated because I had been dealing with crappy weight issues too. For 4.5 years I thought I would never have a child. * if you are interested in reading what I did post along my TTC journey, you can find that blog here: * In February 2011, I finally went to another dr who diagnosed me with PCOS. It was bad. I was in bad shape. The goal was to treat me with metformin in attempts to regulate my body BEFORE starting clomid. The dr was positive metformin would not work alone. However, I instantly dropped approximately 25lbs and ended up pregnant after 2 weeks. For some reason on April 3, 2011 I got a hunch at 10pm to take a pregnancy test. Not expecting a positive, I got this:
HOLY COW, right?? By this time I was completely freaking out. I send a picture message to my best friend, Courtney (and you can find her here: and by this point we were both awstruck. SO. At 1030 pm we are throwing on pjs and running on out to walmart to buy the clear blue digitals and got the word PREGNANT!!!! I was all sorts of scared adn happy and confused. I about hit the floor. So my journey went from being sad and childless to ecstatic, nervous, and pregnant. We went to the doctor and my EDD was 12/11/11. On 6/25/2011, we found out that Baby Dean was a BOY and his name became James :) We welcomed him into our lives on 11/30/11. It was one of the happiest days of my life!! This is the story of us. My next post will be the birth story and I am going to do my best to keep up with this blog better than the last one :) hope you follow me on my crazy ride!
