Hopefully 3rd time's a Charm!

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I have last blogged. I guess time has been going by fast or something. Maybe it’s just because kindergarten uses up a lot of my energies  and blogging just sounds like more work after a long day of Kindergarten.
I’m usually not a very open person when it comes to certain things, but I think I would feel better if I just shared some of the things that have been going on in our lives recently.
For the past year Kory and I have been trying to get pregnant and we have actually been successful twice. The problem is, is that I have not been able to stay pregnant. Back in April I was pregnant for 5 weeks and had a miscarriage. At the time I just brushed it off because I was not far along and I knew that we had only been trying for a few months. We kept trying and trying and got pregnant again in November. Which we were really excited about and the timing seemed perfect. I knew it was possible to miscarry again so we tried not to get too excited. We went to the doctor when I was 7 weeks and everything looked good and we saw it’s heartbeat. Meanwhile I’m feeling really good about everything and hoping that things will continue going well. (I did have one concern and that was that I had and still have a cold/cough that has literally lasted me 2 and a half months.) Just when I started feeling like nothing bad was going to happen, we went back to the doctor for a 10 week appointment and my biggest fear happened. The doctor was doing an ultrasound and was not talking. I could tell right away he was looking for a heartbeat. I couldn’t see it and neither could he. For some reason “you” just never think things like this will happen to “you.”
Anyway, to say the least, I had a procedure done on Friday to help the miscarriage along. I never realized how difficult something like this can be and I have A LOT more sympathy for people who have gone through similar experiences. We are trying to stay positive about all of this, and we are going to continue trying to start our family.
Sometimes it is hard to have the face-to-face conversations about this sort of stuff. So if you were wondering about how our baby making is coming along, this should give you a little bit of an update.
Even though this has been a hard time for the both of us, we are grateful for the love that our Heavenly Father continues to show us in our lives. We are grateful for the blessings that we do have and we look forward to the time that we will be able to be parents.
