Hey everyone! I'm so sorry I have been such a blog slacker here lately!! Jamie and I have been doing great! However, we got some pretty bad news yesterday. I have "officially" been diagnosed with PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome- not too sure on the spelling). I went in yesterday for an ultrasound check up and I now have nine cysts on my ovaries and they were able to diagnose me with that! So, I am now on birth control (HUGE step back) and a new med called metformin to help get rid of the cysts and control my insulin issues! It's good that we found this out and hopefully it will be the icing on the cake to help us to get pregnant! However, with so many odds going against us(endo, PCOS and Jamie), Jamie and I are really feeling that adoption may be our best option. It is something that has been placed upon on hearts and we both know that there is a special child out there that God has created (or will create) that is meant only for us! How amazing is it to think about that??? We have both said that even if we do conceive, our second child will be through adoption!! God has truly opened our eyes to so many new things that we would have never seen without struggling with our infertility!! God is truly amazing!!!
We have had so much to keep our minds and hearts busy with here lately! Our Sunday School class is getting HUGE! It is awesome! We have so many wonderful people in our class and it is such a blessing to be able to watch them grow and strive to live better lives and become stronger in their walk each day!! Our nieces and nephews have had a lot going on too! Sarah-Marie broke her foot and had a boot just like Uncle Jamie, Annah-Jane lost 2 teeth and little Luke is now crawling and pulling up and even standing up on his own a little!!! And last but not least....Daisy is wonderful! =)! Sadly enough, she has really become like our child!! She goes to daycare, wears clothes, we paint her toenails and all of that fun stuff!!! I think I may have even talked Jamie into letting me get Daisy a playmate later on in the year!!! But we'll see how that goes!! Anyways, I hope you are all doing amazing!! Please continue to pray for Jamie and I while we still search for guidance on which direction to follow! We love you all and God bless!!
