When my husband and I decided to have a baby, it wasn't so quick and easy for us. After a year with no success, I started to have horrible back pain. I went to several doctors, had several x-rays and exams done, but no one could tell me what was wrong. My mother had mentioned to me that maybe I had endometriosis, as she had once had it, and it was possibly hereditary. I decided to research it, and after looking at all the symptoms, it seemed like a possibility. I went in and told the Dr my findings, he then referred me to a ob/gyn, as he thought this was a possibility. After a couple visits with different doctors, we decided to have a laparoscopy done. A week later I went in for surgery; they had found some tissue on my bladder, and removed it. Two months later I had no more pain and was pregnant! I have since found out that endometriosis doesn't go away, it comes back unless you have a hysterectomy. So I know the next time I try to get pregnant it could be a struggle, but after having my daughter it is so worth it.

Turns out this problem is pretty common. So many people around me seemed as if they got pregnant so easily, it was so frustrating when I couldn't. After I had this surgery, people started telling me that they had the same problem, or had trouble themselves. If more people talked openly of their problems, it would help others with similar problems! Well, I thought I would share my story!

Bible in 24 hours?!?

I think the hardest part of this blog thing, is coming up with a decent title for the post. I would normally center my post around the title I choose, I am deciding to different today.
My little one has not been a very good napper today, she has had trouble falling asleep, and then has trouble staying there, which has made a tiring day for her mama as well! I have spent most of my day following along to a powerpoint called "24 hours through the Bible" a man of the name Chuck Missler narates the whole thing, here is his website www.khouse.org. It has been pretty interesting, and has kept my attention most of the day!
My beautiful daughter has now decided that she needs me attention more than this blog does, so I promise to write sooner than this last time!

A little about me with a pinch of no sleep!

I thought I would start a blog, mostly for family that don't live close by. I plan to write a lot about my 20 week old daughter, Alexandra; as well as my life as I see it!
To start with I am 26 years old, been married to my husband Joshua for 4 years now. We have been together for 8 years, which seems like a while, but time sure does fly! He works with his family, and spends a majority of his time at or thinking about work. He loves us, and I know he does his best to provide for us!
I am also a born again Christian, while my walk with Christ has had it struggles, it has been the best path I have chosen to take. While a lot of my life changes have been for the best, some are still hard, such as losing some good friends, but in time it will all work out.
As for the no sleep part, my beautiful daughter, to which we call so many names; Alex, Allie, Allie Cat, Allie Bug, Nug, Nugnut, and of course Alexandra! Poor girl will probably never figure out her name! She has always been a pretty decent sleeper, and up until the past week, would only get up once a night. Which was great, I felt so proud to tell people this when they asked if I had gotten much sleep. She has decided to switch that around on me! She has been getting up every 2 hours, I have trouble getting her back to sleep! All she wants to do is nurse, and won't sleep by herself! I have since realised that she has a cold, which is probably the culprit, I just hope it goes away soon! While I hate not sleeping, I feel worse for her, I know she has to be exhausted!
She happens to be napping right now, which is the only way I was able to start this. I really should be getting the house cleaned, as we have company coming on Thanksgiving! On that note I sign off! Happy Thanksgiving in case I am unable to post before then!
