The Pitter Patter of Little Feet

Well, bloggers.  The time has finally come.

Many of you have been following my trials with infertility for some time.  I opted to share this journey in my blog because it is not spoken of much among any but the closest of friends.  But the blog gave me a place to vent and document the trials, though I still kept things vague.

I am so happy to tell you all that my journey with infertility is finally at an end.  I am pleased to announce that I am currently 11 weeks pregnant.  We opted to wait to tell people, because we've had some issues we wanted to be sure everything was alright.  Our estimated due date is November 10, 2013.

I have used Taoism to help me through the tough times infertility brought me, and I am really looking forward to using the teachings to help me be the best parent I can be.  I am in awe of the miracle that is growing inside me, an amazing illustration of nature at its finest.  I try to stay positive, though morning (noon and night) sickness hit pretty hard at 6 weeks and the fatigue is unparallelled.  Luckily the nausea has eased up and I'm beginning to feel myself again.

Thank you to all of you who supported us through this journey, I feel so lucky to count you among my friends.


  1. Finally some good news on the internet! I am so happy for you and wish you the very best. To bring life into the world is the greatest achievement of humans. All the best! Congratulations Sweet Rose!

  2. We males of the species can only pretend to understand pregnancy and all we know of the birth process itself is NOT to allow the woman in labor to grasp our fingers in such a way as to have them bent back to the wrist. The tears upon witnessing the little miracle though are from a whole different emotion. May your pregnancy be trouble-free and may you feel the absolute joy and awe of birth and beyond.
