OH BABY!!!!

Yes that is right, I am expecting. After two years of trying to have a baby the Lord has smiled upon us. Did you know that the bible says children are a reward. We are so happy!!!
Here is some history of us. Before we were wed I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and they told me that they didn't think we could have children but if we wanted them that now would be our best shot. ( I had just had a surgery that burned most of the endo they had found.) So we walked away alittle overwhelmed but knew that we both wanted children and also that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. So we were married a small humble wedding. Afterwards we had a church pray over us and within 3 weeks we were pregnant with our daughter who is now 11. When Malia was 3 mths old my endo started coming back and the docs just told me it was depression. We went ahead and started trying for another child in fear that we would not be able to have another child. Since my doctor would not listen to anything I figured it was time to move on. Ladies let me tell you this always listen to your body and the Holy Spirit let it guide you and do not let any doctor tell you that you are wrong, or crazy, or depressed. After 2 years of searching for a new doctor I found one. His name is Doctor Rojas and his office was in Inverness FL, He was the only one that was willing to listen to me and he put me in for another surgery. Sure enough he found endo and he burned it off for me. He recommended that I start a pretty serious medicine called Lupron that it could possibly stop the endo. I had to take this medication for 7 months and it basically put me through menopause. When it was over my menstrual cycle resumed to normal and with in 2 mths of going of the meds We got pregnant, ( a time period of about 4 1/2 yrs had passed since the birth of our daughter.) We found out at 6 weeks that we were pregnant with twins, it was very exciting. Unfortunately it just wasn't time for that. I miscarried both twins at around 9 weeks. That was hard. I cannot even describe how it feels. Praise the Lord that 3 mths later I was pregnant with my son who is now 5 yrs old. So now we can almost come current. We moved to Tn from Fl when my son was 2 and when he turned 3 we started trying for our 3rd child. It took two yrs but we are now pregnant. Words cannot express how excited we are. Keep checking the blog because I have a feeling there will be a lot of pregnancy and baby files up for freebies and for sale in the VDBC store. Thanks for reading and sharing in my story!!!

  2. wow! Your story is so close to home. I had endo and was told "million to one" chance of ever having a baby. Fortunately for me, God gave me 5 beautiful babies. But now my daughter is going through the same thing. And a friend of mine was told she was depressed and to go away, now she cant have kids, has had radical surgery and has a morphine pump to cope with the constant pain! I hope all goes well with your pregnancy and I am going to share your story with my daughter who is very down about not being able to fall pregnant and having endo which, to her, feels like the end of it all. Good luck! Caz

using Silhouette Studio files with Ecal and MTC

Good Evening, I planned on posting this a little earlier but my day got away from me. That doesn't happen to anyone else does it? lol! Anyway I have a quick post today with a video tutorial.



I absolutely LOVE the Silhouette Online Store. It is awesome and the files that are on there are awesome too! Well I no longer have the Cameo because in the my last post you were able to see that I decided to keep the Sizzix Eclips 2. Well I had already subscribed to the silhouette store and had purchased several files. So I knew I needed to figure out a way to use them.



I had actually seen a post on a forum describing what to do. I went ahead and tried it but had to tweak a few things to get mine to work. Here is a video that shows you how to use those files so you don't feel like you wasted your money.






Have a great night everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog!!
