I initially wrote a post (that I didn't publish) on my second (third altogether) round of Clomid not working and not understanding why I can't get pregnant (or stay pregnant). But, instead of getting into all that and dwelling on the negative, I want to talk about what I'm grateful for instead.
I managed to find the love of my life very early on in my life (we were 17 and in high school) and I'm so lucky I did. He loves me exactly the way I am, he deals with my crazy on the regular. He's kind, smart, giving, supportive, funny and let's be honest, pretty freakin adorable. I really couldn't imagine my life without him. I'm lucky to spend my life with him.
I also have an amazing family filled with a bunch of crazy people who I love so much and who love me just as much. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that any of them would be there for me the second I ever needed them. I'm especially grateful for my mother. I can only hope that one day I will have a child one day and have just as a good a relationship with my child as my mother and I have. My mother always supports me and gives me the room to be myself. She's more like my best friend than my mother, to be honest. I didn't really grow up knowing my dad and my step-dad and I never got along so well, but my mother more than made up for all of that. And my wonderful husband totally understands my need to spend so much time with my mother and never gets upset about it. Just another way he lets me be myself.
So, everyday I get to wake up next to my beautiful husband and our puppy (and sometimes our cat) in our house that we live in as a little family. There are a lot of things left to be done. But for now, so far, we've come a long way and I'm a very lucky girl. And if babies aren't in our future, I still have many things to be grateful for. Speaking of my cutie husband, I'm going to go cuddle with him now...
