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!
