If you're here from July's ICLW, then welcome! If you're here from Stirrup Queens' blog roundup, then welcome as well. Thank you for taking the time to read my little slice of the interwebs.

I'm an almost 24 year old Canadian living in Mississippi. My husband, Keegan, and I have been married for almost a year and together for almost 4. We live in Mississippi due to Keegan's job, but we both grew up in Missouri and we're hoping to move back one day. We have a young cat named Mika that loves to bite our toes while we're sleeping and play fetch. If you'd like to learn more about me, read some of my posts from June. I participated in the June Blogging Challenge hosted by Waiting for Baby and posted about topics ranging from my dream labor to my advice for the "newbies." My husband even did a guest post on adoption.

If you're new here, let me catch you up on our baby makin' journey:
  • Married August 4, 2012
  • Went off the birth control in April-ish 2012, had missing periods until October 2012. Many pregnancy tests proved I was not pregnant.
  • September 4, 2012 - doctors appointment with my local OB-GYN, diagnosed with PCOS and insulin resistance
  • September 2012 - January 2013 - not trying, not preventing. Used Metformin and diet changes to try and get my body healthy enough for pregnancy
  • January 2013 - first official cycle trying to conceive 
  • January - present: 
    • 7 cycles
    • 30 pounds lost
    • Ovulation days shifted from CD18-21 to CD14 or 15 (except for, of course, this cycle...)
    • HSG preformed 6/17 
    • many, many negative pregnancy tests. 
If you want more details, the "Our Journey" tab above has all the details.

We're currently in the middle of our seventh cycle, waiting for ovulation which hopefully will happen before we leave for our vacation in a few days.

Again, thank you for stopping by. I hope that you'll decide to stay awhile and follow our journey of changing baby makin', to baby made.


  1. Gotta love those disappearing periods. Never happened to me until I decided to start TTC. I hope it's lucky number seven for you!

    1. Same here! Thanks for stopping by and for the sweet words.

  2. Not getting periods when you are not pregnant, is awful. I can vouch for that.

    My problem was that my periods came bang on time, when I wanted them to disappear for nine months or so.

    I finally do have a child now, but it has taken its own years to reach this point.

    Good Luck!


    1. Ever since getting on Metformin, my periods have come right on time too, so annoying! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I'm excited to follow your journey! Hoping 7 is the lucky number for you!
