Capture The Moment

I titled this post Capture The Moment 
I decided I wanted to document the fun we are having in our life at this moment. 
I want to look back and see that we did grieve but we also picked ourselves up 
and got back out there. We didn't hide inside under the covers..
even though the thought crossed my mind many times. 
On our journey to becoming parents my mom would always say
its like we are in a car traveling to our destination 
(the baby being the destination) 
and along the way we would have curves (not big enough follies) 
and twists (no ovulation)
and crazy turns (4 mature follicles) 
but when we finally conceived our car suddenly seemed to be on 
a straight highway with no twists or turns, a straight shot
that ended at our destination 
(with a baby in our arms) 
that straight road had a big cliff we didn't see..

It feels as though we were picked up like a monopoly piece and put back at the 
beginning of the road
with a new car, traveling right back down that curvy road,
just hoping and praying we find our way to that final destination. 

I have an appointment next Monday to check the status of my infection
*fingers crossed it's gone!* 
& to get the results of the genetic testing, along with my lab results 
at that time we will also talk about our options,
whether we will go back on clomid or not
whether we move on to IUI..
It's to much to think about at this moment, and we need to know 
the result of everything tested before we even begin to decided which road to follow. 

Here are just a few of the moments captured over the weekend :) 
My Love got me a beautiful necklace this week, just to lift my spirit, I love him.
& flowers from friends and family showing sympathy for our loss
the pink roses on the left are from my dear Oma they have a tall angel in the center of them
that we are going to place by the tree we are planting for Baby W
