2013 wasn’t a bad year, a lot of wonderful things happened in our lives! I organized a very successful 5k race to help raise awareness of the disease my mother passed away from, R’s older sister had her first baby (our first niece), my sister announced her third pregnancy, I started grad school, R’s younger sister graduated from college, our oldest nephew started kindergarten, and we had several friends & family visits throughout the year….but it didn’t bring us a baby, and that’s what I keep dwelling on. It’s so easy to dwell on the negatives and forget all of the positives and blessings in our lives and I’m trying to be better at that.
I’ve got a few *hopefully realistic* goals for the new year that I’d like to share….sharing them makes them real:
- lose 8 lbs every month I’m not pregnant
- maintain a more positive attitude
- read 1 book (for fun, not school) a month
Tomorrow I go in for my pre-op appointment for my laparoscopy, and that’ll give me a better idea of what to expect the day of my surgery and post-op. Starting to get a little anxious about the surgery….but excited too. If things go well we could be starting IUI’s again in February or March!
Wish me luck tomorrow and in the new year with my new goals & new attitude!
