MIMM

The day after Christmas, we had our third and final transfer. There are no more eggs/embryos left and unless we want to do it all over again (remember, I’ve been doing infertility treatments for a year now) we are done. We came to accept that Kara could be an only child a few months ago, so I’ve been preparing myself (as much as you can) for the outcome. I got in an easy 6 mile run and we hung out until my appointment at 3PM. Of course Todd and Kara came. We transferred 2 embryos and then Kara and I […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I’m sure by now everyone is Christmas-ed out, but we did nothing for new years eve (went to sleep at 10PM 🙂 nothing to report there) and didn’t want to blog while I was on vacation from work and spending time with the fam <3 So you’re getting Christmas from HRF a little late. Sorry not sorry. Christmas Eve started with a super humid, super emotional run with Jolene. I don’t know where it came from (maybe all the extra estrogen I’m on) but towards the end of the run I was riding the struggle bus and […]

Happy Monday everyone! Can you believe it will be Christmas this time next week?! I had a pretty great week last week that included two days of vacation from work, a lot of running, so much yummy food and of course, time with family. Sorry if you follow me on Instagram and have seen all of these pictures… I still like to put them on the blog and think that some people don’t use IG. Anyway, here’s my week in collages! Monday: One of my two days of vacation this week! It was really cold (for Florida) so I slept […]

To start this off on a somewhat random note: at my work, you can only roll over so many weeks of vacation. For maternity leave, if you want to get paid a full paycheck the whole time your off, you have to supplement with your vacation and sick time (and even then it’s not going to last you 3 months). That being said, we 100% believed I’d be pregnant and giving birth before the end of this year (HA!) so I saved it all. To be honest, at some point, we just forgot about it. Well, there I was, with […]

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!! My week started off with a late blog post and work- boo! We had to work until Wednesday, but as you can imagine, there wasn’t too much work going on 😉  Tuesday I had a fabulous run with Jolene. My “good pace” is now her easy pace and Wednesday I did an easy run on the treadmill and Body Pump after work. That take us to Thursday… Thanksgiving!!! I ran on my favorite “trail” with a girlfriend and just enjoyed myself. I am so thankful for these legs and how much they’ve gotten me through. […]

Happy Monday! Last week was pretty great. Not having to deal with shots and only having to take estrogen (to build up my lining) has been a great “break.” I have an appointment tomorrow (Tuesday) to check how my lining is coming along and then I’ll start adding in more meds and progesterone shots- eeeee. The only side affects I’ve gotten from the estrogen is tiredness and mild headaches, so for now, I’m enjoying no bloating and less mood swings!I got in a decent mid week run of 9 miles @ 8:14 pace. I ended up running (literally) into Jolene at […]

Good Morning! It’s only been four days since I last posted, but a lot has happened! Friday started off with Kara and I’s usual Froyo Date, after work of course. She freakin loves that place. And then I had my beta test to see if I was pregnant. Saturday we decided to go to the zoo! Kara had only gone once, when she was a little baby and we figured it was time since she loves animals. We took a “safari” ride, visited the petting zoo (of which no petting took place) and walked around for a few hours, seeing […]

Last week was my last few days of running, my birthday and my egg retrieval for IVF. I must say, that all that made for a pretty eventful week, one way or another! I took Monday as a rest day after my 16 miler and did an easy 6 miles on the treadmill Tuesday. I still had a bit of my birthday cake left over and had it as a pre-breakfast with my Nuun… no shame! Wednesday was officially my last day of running until hopefully after I find out I’m pregnant! I was so happy to get some miles in […]

Happy Monday folks! Kara’s daycare was close last Monday, so I had the privilege of staying home with her <3 I still got up extra early so I could get a run in (a not too shabby run if you ask me!) and enjoy every second with her. We had pumpkin zoatmeal for breakfast, went to the park and split an ice cream bar to cool down. Look at those red cheeks!!! Kara is all about reading, so you better believe we spent a good amount of time in her room going through books. Brown Bear Brown Bear is one […]

Happy Monday Folks! I’m pretty sure I said this a few weeks ago, but man, what a week. I had a big event that I was planning at work for Saturday, we started IVF, my phone broke and Kara hurt her foot. At least I got in some good runs! Here’s how it all went down… Event Planning: By no means am I an event planner. My official title is Internal Marketing and Communications Specialist. WAY different than organizing something for 600 people. The event was Saturday and the week leading up to it was stressful to say the least. […]
