Blogging is Hard Work

I hate that I went through a period of time where I REALLY kept up with my blog because now I'm feeling like a total bloggy FAILURE. Oh well. Life happens I guess.

So, here's the latest Crowder news in a nutshell. Chris and I entertained the thought of moving back to STL for a little bit and were shut down by our realtor. Because we've only been in our house for 2 years, we still owe quite a bit and with the economy like it is...let's just say we would lose some serious cash. We were a little disappointed but glad that we now know we'll be in Dallas for at least another year. I still absolutely love Dallas but the thought of being by my family makes my heart very happy. We'll get there, eventually.

The good news about not going to STL is working on baby Crowder! We were not going to go back to the fertility specialist because of insurance switches/drama if we moved while preggo. Now that it's out of the plans, we're going to go for it. We plan on starting our next treatment as soon as I begin my next cycle (likely in 2 weeks or so). Our doctor plans on me going back on Clomid, doing a trigger shot to ovulate, Chris and I trying naturally, and some progesterone therapy to sustain a pregnancy if everything works out. I'm SUPER happy with this plan. Our last doctor wanted us to immediately move to some pretty serious injections (I'm talking Jon and Kate plus 8....minus one total tool now) without trying anything else first. YIKES! Taking it slow is definitely how I would prefer it. Please be praying for some good news to come soon!

Other than that, things are same old, same old. Chris and I have been hitting the gym pretty hard and trying to eat right. This is the longest I've held the "get healthy" resolution so I'm pretty proud of us. I'm reading Jillian Michaels' "Mastering Your Metabolism" which is pretty dang interesting and scary to think about. I'll keep you updated on how it's going....ok....who am I kidding. I'll blog again in about a month and a half...HA!

Awww, I'm sorry to hear that you won't make it to STL as quickly as you had hoped, but yay for your new dr! Still praying for you and Chris, and I can't wait to hear how things go!
