Update on {Non} Baby Situation and Weekend Pics.

Let's recap the freaking weekend with pictures, shall we?

Friday night included a play date, wine, and Face Timing readers with Mama Laughlin.


Just one more reason everyone should be on Instagram. {@skinnymeg31}


Saturday after the gym and shopping I took a glorious nap with the baby, Man, I miss naps!


Then I had a massage which was amazing. She rubbed my glutes and I'm pretty sure it was the best thing ever. E.V.E.R.  I really need to get it done more often.


I went to dinner and movie with Brandi, we saw SilverLinings Playbook and it was cute, Bradley Cooper, just yum. 


Sunday was soccer and shopping.


I loaded up at Sprouts because today is day 1 of the Advocare 10 day Cleanse. 
I spent about $150, but I got a lot of food. I need options :)


Came home to clean my house and my stupid Shark fizzled out.
This led to me having to wash my floor on my hands and knees Cinderella style.


Went to dinner with these two, the little one needs lots of little 'coaching' sessions on her sassy mouth.
Daddy don't put up with that :)


Now a update on the {Non} Baby Situation.


I know I haven't updated on here about my fertility struggles lately, honestly I didn't really feel like there was much to talk about. It's really a wait and see kinda thing, but I've gotten so many sweet emails and comments from y'all that I thought I would just tell you where I'm at on the whole thing.

I stopped taking Clomid because the last month I took it I had 2 large follicles {could turn into 2 eggs, we DO NOT want twins!}, but I was also given progesterone to lengthen the second half of my cycle and it didn't work. AT ALL. Like not even 1 extra day.

So my gyno pretty much said she couldn't do anything else for me and referred me to an RE. {Reproductive Endocrinologist} I googled one close to my work because I've heard you have to go a lot and I will have to do these appts on my lunch breaks. So I went and we chatted and I learned things I didn't know.
Like the fact that you can have every sign of ovulation {regular periods, tender boobies, etc} and not really be ovulating.
That having a c-section could mean you have scarring on the inside which would be messing with my uterine lining which is very thin.
Right now he is just monitoring my cycle to see where the issue is, I've had 2 sonos this month and now I'm waiting for my cycle to start to measure my hormone levels and figure out why my lining is not all plump and fertile.

I know this can be a touchy subject for people, I honestly don't mind talking about it {except with my pushy lovable baby fever wanting Mother} I just don't on here because there's not much to say. I don't have any answers. 
I still have hope and right now I'm just thankful to NOT be taking any hormonal medication!

This is not the first hard thing I've gone through in my life and I'm sure it won't be the last.
I've come out better on the other side so I just try to keep that in mind when I get frustrated.


And love on the cute one I got.

Happy Monday!

  2. first of all....love the pic of your hubby and "sassy"...my girls are so sassy. Drives me batty. We struggled to get preggo both times, there is nothing more disheartening. Sending positive thoughts and prayers.

  3. It's so funny seeing Sharon's picture at the top of your blog! I went to (a very tiny) high school with her and was cracking up when she was commenting to facetime with y'all. I thought she was going to karate chop anybody who tried to cut! :) Still praying for you and hope this doctor helps you find some answers!

  7. Your daughter is beautiful....kids are a blessing aren't they? Sometimes life has a way of throwing us some curve balls to lead us down the path we're supposed to be on. I did not have fertility issues per se, but did have a miscarriage between my first and second...and know how hard it really is to wait for that second baby you want so badly! Sending happy baby thoughts your way : )

  10. I have mad respect for your positivity Meg! It is obvious to everyone who reads your blog how strong you are and how your positive outlook on life can get you through anything, weight loss, fitness, or fertility! Also your positive outlook is contagious to all your readers so thank you for reminding me today that a happy, healthy person is the kind of person I want to be today!

  11. I'm glad you updated us with this...I am taking clomid and I wasn't wondering what your latest info was. Good luck!

  12. Thanks for the update. You are so open and honest and it's refreshing! Looks like you had an awesome fun and relaxing weekend!! Good luck with the cleanse. Others have scared me off with it's non-drink ability. But you make it look easy. Lol. Maybe I'll try it next week. It says no dairy but can you have almond milk? I drink that everyday in my protein smoothies. Thks girl. Have a great day!!

  13. I hope you do continue to update on the fertility issue because talking about it can help others who might be struggling as well. Best of luck!

  14. I didn't really talk about my infertility much - it was too hard. I was doing what you are doing - showing ALL signs of ovulation, but the actual act wasn't happening. I'm praying for you guys and I hope you can figure out the magic formula to get baby #2 cooking soon! It's stressful on a marriage! At least you are getting a break from hormonal meds - those things make you CRAY.

  15. I just love you and pray for that baby every day for you. Hugs my gorgeous friend.

  16. You poor thing, hugs on the non baby situation. I've commented before about how I finally had success with an acupuncturist, but after reading this one, strongly urge you to look into it. Acupuncture can even help thicken your lining. It is crazy how much it can do. I swear by it!

  17. Ohhhh, baby makin' struggles. They suck. Balls. Big fat blue donkey balls.

    I took Clomid 3 times before getting pregnant, and we tried for about 1.5 years.

    And boooooy, do I not miss the hormone drugs. Shit made me cray-cray!!! Like seriously. The hubby didn't even know what was going on, and at one point I think the dog tried to fit his large ass under our bed when I went into a full-on meltdown about the hubby drinking 1....ONE....beer around me. Psychooooo.

    Anyways, just keep with it. Try to remain calm, even though you want to punch a midget for no reason, and things will work out!!

  18. Prayers sent your way!!! That has got to be hard. I have not been through this but can only imagine!!

  19. Did progesterone do anything for you? My doctor put me on that for 4 months, I wanted to try that before clomid because we have a lot of twins on both sides. It made me gain weight and inches like crazy, did you have that problem?

    ReplyDelete
  20. That picture of Oliver coaching Madison is adorable! I really hope the RE works out because you two seem like great parents!

    What a peaceful thought. I think that line is going to stick with me. Thank you!

  22. Good luck girl, we struggled with infertility and it stinks!! We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers! Hopefully you can get some answers soon!!

  23. I've been thinking about you and hoping that you are blessed with a baby soon! I wouldn't wish fertility issues on even my worst enemy (spoken from someone who struggled for 3 years, went to 2 different REs, had countless tests and procedures done, and administered over 1000 shots to myself to get my miracle twins!).

  41. I absolutely loved getting to chat you ladies up on friday night! Y'all are some crazy chicks and I love it! Y'all rock!!!

  42. I miss those young toddler days when you could have a nap....my son is 11 now, and that doesn't happen anymore. Instead we sit down to watch a movie, I fall asleep and he wakes me to tell me to get out of the room, because I'm snoring!

    hugs to you with all you are going through trying to conceive again. We ended up with only one child, lately I find myself oogling babies way too much and sometimes wishing things had turned out differently. Hope that it all works out for you soon, it must be very frustrating! As always, I LOVE how open you are on your blog!!!

  43. So sorry you are going thru all this! Thanks for sharing, I bet you are helping others by telling your story.

    Have fun on the cleanse - ha! :)

  44. Does it scare you to get pregnant and gain weight again? I've never been thin in any of my pregnancies, but I've also only ever gained 5-10 lbs. Now I am in groove of super awesome workouts, loving feeling fit, starting to loose weight, and the idea of 1 last baby keeps poking into my head. I am still at 208 and I would LOVE to be at 175 or lower before getting pg again, but even the idea of having to gain and go through all this weight loss crap again TERRIFIES me but at the same time I feel selfish for that . . . anyway - sorry! Just curious!

  45. I'm excited to do this cleanse alongside you and Mama L. You girls crack me up! And I know how frustrating the whole "baby thing" can be. While my struggles are a bit different - I have lost two pregnancies, one at 17 weeks, another at 7 weeks - I empathize. I do have a beautiful, wonderful, miracle "baby" boy that is 18 months old. (Which is the pregnancy weight I am STILL trying to lose!!) You girls have motivated me to add some weights and strength training to my routine, and today my body hates you. I'm also training for my first Sprint Triathlon in May. Thanks for the motivation and encouragement! Xo

  46. I am VERY new here but I am liking it already. Did you struggle with getting pregnant with you daughter? (Who is a total cutie pants in that pic!) I saw your FaceTime-ing on IG over the weekend. Looks like you girls had so much fun. How was the movie?
    Happy Monday!

  47. Megs....... I love you. Never, ever forget it. :) I've been praying hard for you and your adorable little family ever since the day I "met" you. I just can't wait to squeeze you one day!

  48. Has anyone ever told you how amazing you are and what an awesome attitude you have and what an inspiration you are and how many smiles you bring to those of us who stalk you?? Just thought I would tell you in case you haven't heard it in a while! Much love to you dear Meg!

  49. I read your blog almost every day but this is the first time that I am going to comment! I too, had fertility issues. My husband and I were able to get pregnant within a few months of trying with our first. When she turned 2ish we decided we were ready for #2. We tried for a year and nada. Meanwhile EVERYONE around me was pregnant and glowing and happy and I.WAS.MISERABLE. We went to the fertility Dr, and she wanted me to start clomid and shots and have sonos right away because my uterine lining was so thin and my periods were really light, I was informed that I would have a tough time getting pregnant. We were devestated. But I was in the right place at the right time because during this time my neighbor (who had been trying for over 5 to get pregnant) had started seeing a Swedish Naturopathic Dr and was able to get pregnant!! I made an appointment with him and within 9 months we were pregnant! Naturopathic Docs treat the whole body, not just your lady parts! I know that not all Naturopathic Docs are the same, but this worked for us and was not invasive, in fact I felt better then I had in a long time. My son is going to turn 2 years old in a few months and he looks just like me!

  50. Your husband seems like a wonderful man! I love that we got to read some of his comments today. It is amazing to find a person who will love you for who you are and not what you look like. My bf of 5 years has seen me and my skinniest and heaviest and he still loves me for me! Thanks so much for sharing your life to us- the ups and downs! xo
