So here's another brief little bio: I'm a 23 year old nursing student, future doula, future midwife, passionate home birth, intactivist, lactivist crunchy lady who would love nothing more than to find herself unexpectedly pregnant. Matt is 24 and we've been married since May 2007 and have been ttc that entire time (minus six awful months after our loss). We managed to get pregnant during the summer of 2008 only to lose that miracle baby at 12 weeks right when I started to think I was in the clear. It forever changed who I am and who I'll one day be as a care provider. There's not much going on with the ttc front right now but that might change once we find out what kind of insurance Matt's job will be offering (he qualifies next month!)
Two pregnancy announcements on face.book today. Hit me like two punches to the gut. I wish I wasn't so bitter.
Looks like I'll get to take the DONA doula workshop about a month from now in Springfield, MO which is like 2 and a half hours from here. I am waiting to hear back from one woman who is due in 7 weeks to see if I'm comfortable committing to being on call while in nursing school. If not, I will hopefully pick up some clients that are due this summer.
In honor of the new year, ICLW, and hope, I offer you my first giveaway. I have an extra copy of an older version of Taking Charge of Your Fertility that I would like to offer up. I know many of my readers have already struggled with infertility and know where they are in their cycle by the look of the toilet paper, but for those of you who don't, or who would just like to learn more, leave me a comment telling me what you would like to learn from this book. For an additional entry, become a follower of my blog and leave another comment letting me know about it!
Looking forward to another great week full of some new blogs and lovely ladies!
