The beginning

A little backstory…

I met my husband, Ethan, working at my first job when I was 18 years old in May 2006. I will not go into much detail on that story, but will save it for a later time. So fast forward 3 years and we are married on December 5, 2009. Ethan and I had always planned on waiting a year or so before we were going to start a family. So that time came around May 2011, and we thought that it was a good time to start trying. Well that is when it all began…

I suppose I should not have been too surprised when I did not get pregnant right away. When I was 15 I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome).  At 15 that big long word meant nothing to me. Honestly I just wanted to figure out why my cycles were irregular and why I was the only one in my family that was chubby. I did not really listen to the doctor when she was trying to explain that it could one day make it difficult to conceive. So when I did not get pregnant 6 months after trying, I thought a nice trip (or not) to my OBGYN would be just the trick. Well long story short that big ugly word reared its ugly head once again…
