Leah is about to inject herself with a large amount of hormones.
I just checked in on Facebook and as I was reading everyone's status updates (yes, I do that and I'll admit it here where no one reads and could never find out), I thought...wouldn't it be funny (and horribly pathetic) if I wrote "Leah is about to inject herself with a large amount of hormones." I didn't do it. But I thought about it. Because I am currently in the "crazy" portion of my cycle. Actually, its Crazy Part 1. Crazy Part 2 comes if and when I find out I'm not pregnant.
Okay, I really do have to go and inject myself - I'm 15 minutes late. And then its ice cream time.
I'm a mom to my beloved Finn. I'm a wife to my partner and best friend G$. I used to be a teacher. I have three great parents and lots of friends who I love, love, love. I like to read, travel, eat good food, sing, sit in the sun, take my friends' Zumba class, fold warm laundry, laugh, shop by myself, watch a good TV show, drink maragritas....My husband and I lost our baby at 20 weeks to anencephaly. And then we had lots of trouble getting pregnant again. Infertility and loss brought me to a dark place. It was the most difficult period of my life. Maybe it sounds cliche, but I learned a lot about myself, my marriage, and who has my back. After Finn was born, the color came back to my life. Being his mother is the best thing. Motherhood is wonderful and hard, boring and exciting - I don't love it every second of every day, but I do love it. I would love to have more children, but, to be blunt, I don't have a uterus. So now we decide if we embark on the adoption journey.
