It has been soooo long since my last post....26 days to be exact! I just haven't been in the mood to share my thoughts or feelings. I have had my share of ups and downs, and lately I have let the downs completely control my moods. I have come to realize I need all the comfort and support from friends and family that I can get. So I have a lot of catching up to do.
First off, I got my blood work back and the doc said everything looks good on my end. My hormones are fine and I am ovulating, so that is not the problem. Now Jake has the stress on his shoulders, so this has been a very difficult thing for us both. I just don't want this to be a blame game. (It's your fault, or it is my fault.) I just wish he understood that part.

Well, anyways I have realized I need to focus on the positive things in my life. Instead of stressing over not being able to get pregnant, I should enjoy the time I have with my husband. He is wonderful and tries so hard to make me happy. I should be happy with that....right?

We went fishing Sunday and had a WONDERFUL time! We always have a good time, but this trip was extra special because I caught the biggest fish!! YAY!

Here is a picture of a rainbow on our way there. I have never seen the end of a rainbow until today. (I really wish I could have got a picture of it.)
This picture is of my FIL. I thought it was pretty funny bc his shirt said "Fish fear me and women love me".

Here is our caught of the day. We threw back a LOT of fish, so these were our "keepers".

Please excuse how horrible I look, it was hot and then we got rained on!
It was just ONE of those days that you think back on and smile. We had great converstion time and great fishing. And a few suprises all throughout the day. =) Deer, ducks, gar and HUGE catfish. I love nature and being outdoors.

I've been wondering about you!

At least now knowing something is better than wondering, so maybe you can work on the problem with no blame, bc it's not really a "fault", ya know? I know it's been stressful. =( So sorry.

I know about the blame game--we are in the exact same situation. we have taken a three month break and have not been talking about getting pregnant. I think this has helped us a lot.

Glad to hear you had fun, we love to fish too. Remember, I am praying for you! ((HUGS))

Thanks for sharing. I had been wondering about you too...

It's hard to focus on what's right in front of you when there is more that you want....

I'll be praying for you guys!!

Thanks for sharing! I'm sorry you are having to go through this. Just keep telling Jake, "We are a team and it doesn't matter who it is, we're in this together". We refer to it in our home as "our" problem because we're one.

I have never been fishing in my life! I'm impressed with ya'lls catch!

Love ya!

Along with everyone else...I have also been wondering about you! It was good to see you the other day, just wish we could have visited more...it was too stinking hot though!!!

I'm thinking about and praying for you.
