What am I doing here?

In the past, I have thought about blogging many times...but keep putting it off!  My goal is to get pregnant this year.  I have been married for 4 1/2 years and we have not yet become pregnant.  I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2006 and have had a rough and crazy journey to where I am now! 

My goal in blogging is to keep a "journal" of my progress.  To be honest I am not sure where this all will lead, but I will be trying to update regularly and post some of the things that I want to do on my road to having my own precious baby!  Today I was reading week 12 of a 12-week online fertility workshop that I took from Donielle's "Naturally Knocked Up" website.  It said to take some time to write down some goals that I had, so that's what I did!  Here they are:
I want to get pregnant this year!

Before Pregnancy-
Detox my body
Lose some weight
Feel better
Relax more
Battle my sugar cravings

During Pregnancy-
Exercise regularly
Put good and wholesome things in my body
Read, study, and prepare myself for having a child of my own

The cycle an egg (and sperm) go through is approximately 90 days.  Because of this I am going to spend some time getting ready to get pregnant.  In February, there are a few things I would like to do; Begin juicing (at least once a week), drink a cleansing tea every day, castor oil packs regularly, exercise at least 2 times a week, and eat at least 1 serving of fruits or veggies every day.

I know these things may be simple, and seem easy, but with 2 foster kids, working full time, and taking care of a home these things will be a big step towards my goal!

Thanks for reading!



  1. Good luck with your journey Christin. I know that your goal will become a reality someday. Keep the faith.

  2. I joined the local community college volleyball team to get into shape before Kai. Good for you to want to be healthy! Remember to take prenatal vitamins as well.

  3. Good for you for setting such wonderful goals! Small things are much easier to accomplish :) Praying for your journey!

  4. So proud of you! This will be a great way to get those who love you to help AND support you on your way. And then celebrate when the Lord blesses you with a bambino ;)
