Radio Silence

 So.....I haven't written in about a month. 

I know that I kind of left you guys hanging on the IVF thing.  I shared with you that we were finally going for it, and I even shared some of my nursery inspirations with you during the two weeks when we were waiting to find out if our IVF was successful.

I got you excited with gorgeous images like this....

....and then.....nothing.  

Worst blogger ever.

So here's the scoop:  Our first round of IVF was successful, and life was grand.....for about 8 weeks.  But at one of my routine ultrasound appointments...the baby's heart had just stopped beating, and it was over.

And so, I just sort of lost my motivation to create, think, blog, talk to anyone for while....
But, it's coming back :)

It won't ever really be over, of course. This is not our first time at the rodeo, and I know from experience that these losses are permanent. They'll be a part of who we are forever.

But our first round of IVF is over, and so we are moving on to try it again.  I'm going to try to be a little more transparent this round, and share with you what's going on as it's happening.  After all, when I stalk other bloggers who are going through IVF (and I do stalk you guys!), my favorite posts are the ones that give the little details that help me know what to expect.  So I'll try to pay that forward this time.

Oh, and to those of you who emailed or messaged me to check in during the last're amazing.  Your concern and words of encouragement meant more to me that you know.

In fact, you should totally find a way to use this awesome printable from Sarah Hearts, because it totally sums up how I feel about you guys.  Plus, it's super cute!
