Yes, I’m still alive

Posted on: September 24, 2010

I can’t believe it has been over a year since I’ve written anything.  A lot has happened in that year, and I can’t even remember a time where my life has been so completely topsy-turvy.  My husband and I both lost our mothers within a month and a half of each other.  I lost a job, but gained another in a totally different field.  And the biggest change of them all is that we have a daughter.  After trying for 4 years and suffering 2 miscarriages my husband and I now have a beautiful, healthy, wonderful little girl.  I had a really rough beginning and I truthfully thought that I was going to have a third miscarriage.  I couldn’t face the thought of losing yet another baby, and I couldn’t face the thought of writing about it.  So the blog fell silent.  I wish I could say that I went through my pregnancy with grace, but I would be a liar.  I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop – like when the bleeding spells started the day after I got a positive HPT, or when I had weekly non-stress tests because I started having contractions at 32 weeks.  I guess what I’m trying to say (heh, rather poorly.  I need to shake out the cobwebs) is that I can hardly believe we are now standing on the other side of infertility.  I look at my daughter every day and even with all of the horrible things that have happened this year, I still think how incredibly lucky we are

So without further ado, I’d like to introduce Little Miss Texan…

I hope to get back to writing on a more regular basis.  I’m still knitting, I’m still spinning, and I look forward to sharing my projects with you all again.
