I started this blog to have a place to vent about our infertility struggles. We have two sons thanks to modern medicine and are hoping a third child comes easier!
Hi, Im Erin..Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Wife and Mother, Infertile. Trevor was the answer to my prayers after 25 months. I adore being his Mom and am looking forward to watching him grow(slowly, please!) and expanding our family.
We started trying fertility treatments to give him a sibling on his first birthday. This time it took a new RE, a failed FET, a miscarriage, a full IVF cycle and a chemical pregnancy before we became pregnant with a healthy baby. Gavin Thomas joined our family and we are madly in love!
In my life outside pregnancy obsessions, I enjoy taking pictures, boating, taking our kids new places, traveling, shopping, adult conversation, learning new things, reading, spending time with my nieces/nephews, and laughing. :)
Daddy also goes by Tom or Tommy, the head of this household. After 2 years of waiting and testing, he is officially a Cook County Sheriff! He dreams of becoming a Chicao Police Officer. He ran his first marathonon 10-10-10 and is making that a yearly thing. In his rare free time, he enjoys golfing, date nights with Mama, traveling, playing with Trevor, jetskiing, drinking a few beers, and watching movies.
He stole my heart 6 years ago and he is the reason I am living my dream.
Trevor was born November 11, 2009. He was conceived on our first IVF attempt and we are thankful every day. He is the happiest baby on the block(no, really!) and loves to be loved. He is currently a running, talking baby, growing up before our eyes. He is a total Mama's boy. He loves to be silly and maybe a little naughty. We love him more than we ever imagined!
