Day 5

Today is the last day of the Clomid. The side effects haven't been too bad. I have just had really bad hot flashes. I will take that. Yesterday and today, I seem to be a little bit moddier than usual. My class probably gets it more than Shaylor. I always feel bad and apologize to them. They didn't do anything wrong! So now it is jsut the waiting game! I am very anxious but I know our time will come. All I can ask is for all of you to keep praying! It means a lot to us. All prayers are always welcome.

On the bright side of things, Addison Hope Richards was born on the 28th. We are leaving today to Houston so we can see our new niece. We are really excited and can't wait to be with Shaylor's family again.

Day 1

Today hopefully starts the first day of the rest of our lives. I start the meds today so please, PLEASE, pray for us this next month.

One of the side effects is mood swings, so you might need to pray for Shaylor too!

So... here it is.

Christmas was wonderful. We had a fabulous time in El Paso. There were 6 dogs, and 6 people. I know my parents loved having everyone home. I am sure it is hard to be by themselves. The weekend before Christmas we went to Houston. All Shaylor's mom wanted for Christmas was to be with her family. So Shaylor and I , and Tiff and Benji drove down to Houston and suprised them. It was great to be able to spend the Holidays with both families. Hopefully we can do that every year.

All I really wanted for Christmas was a miracle from God. It didn't happen, but we did get some answers at the beginning of 2009. My progestrone levels are too low for us to get pregnant. Ther are boderline lever. Because my levels are not where they should be, we have a high risk of having a miscarriage. So, I really do feel it is a blessing in disguise that I haven't gotten pregnant. I am going to start taking Clomid on my next cycle. The research I have found shows that there will be a good chance of it happening in the next 3 to 6 months. So, continue to pray and keep your fingers crossed for us. I feel at peace knowing that there was a reason that it had not happened yet. It is crazy how God works. I wish I could express the relief that I felt when the doctor called and told us there is something wrong, but it is fixable.

I got a new car in Dec. so that was exciting for us. We are going to spend the weekend cleaning out the garage so she can have a home.

Shaylor has been taking real estate classes and is almost finished. SO YEAH!!!!! Hopefully he won't be at Home Depot much longer. I am ready to have my husband on the weekends. He has been working nights. He goes in at 9:00 pm and gets off at 5:30 am. He has had the weekends off, which has been extremely nice. We go to church together, go to the movies, or just veg! I think I am a bit more ready than he is.

So, that is all I can think about right now. I am sure I missed a bunch and if I think of it, I will try to post it. Hopefully I can update more frequently. Hope yall enjoy your weekend!
