The Beginning

So, I've been trying for the last week to write our first post. C has been after me to just get it done. So here I go. I don't know why I've been so hesitate. I think subconsciously I'm afraid to start posting about our life in a blog. Once we start putting it out there for the masses it makes it all so much more real. Up until now it's just been 'US' planning, planning, oh...did I mention planning? Let me start out about telling you a bit about C and me. We met about 20 years ago...in high school (gasp) and this year will be our 17th anniversary. I bet your wondering why after 17 years did we decided to start having a family? Well, we would have probably started trying in our 20's but C got very sick. She was diagnosed in 1998 with SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) in it's most severe form and was hospitalized for two weeks. She had the key butterfly rash, kidney failure, pancreatitis, high blood pressure, seizures, and a high fever. It was a very scary time for us! But with chemotherapy and a complete lifestyle change she has been in total remission for 3 years. We went from staying out late, eating whatever we wanted (whenever we wanted), irresponsible 24-year-olds to suburban (hopeful) moms.

So, in the next few days we are embarking on our first attempt in the TTC process. It's been a year in the works so cross your fingers. This blog will be an accumulation of both of our experiences as we get our feet wet during this new journey in our life.
