Hubs and I took a week off from our jobs and decided to venture around different places.  One place we actually fell in love with was Sirmione.  We had the opportunity to visit the Scaliger Castle.  The Scaliger Castle is considered one of the finest examples of a medieval fortification, including a very rare fortified port.  But it's not just the castle; it's the beauty surrounding it.  Here's a couple of pictures so ya'll can see what I'm talking about...

A Letter To My Husband On His 33 Birthday

Dear J:

I might not say it as often or even show you but I really do love you with all my heart and soul.  When I prayed to God for what I considered a perfect husband in my life their He was making me fall in love with you.  

I just want you to know that I am extremely proud to call you my husband and I wouldn't change anything in my life.  God has a purpose in our marriage and I know soon you will be granted the desire to be a Father.  And when that moment comes you'll be the best Dad our miracle baby or babies will have.  

Although your birthday was yesterday I wanted to capture some moments of your special day before I even wrote this post.  So my darling I wish you once again the best birthday, tons of blessings, and may our Lord grant you each and every desire your heart has.  I love you for ever.  

Happy Birthday

P.S.  Here are some memories from your 33rd birthday!

Acupuncture for Infertility

On my post in May I had spoken a little about beginning our IVF Journey and how we finally found the clinic we know will help us. During these past two months I have spoken to several friends that shared their infertility stories and the do’s and don’t that they thought helped them out.   

First thing they told me was to start acupuncture.  I’m going to be honest at the beginning I was like ok everybody is doing it during their IVF and I still have a couple of months before I begin.  But then these same ladies told me how they did it months before and ended up being pregnant naturally.  And since I know my medical history (PCOS) I decided to give it a try. 

How did it go?  Incredibly awesome!!!  At first I was so nervous and as I kept explaining the purpose of my visit I kept having high hopes.  And even if it doesn’t work I will continue until my IVF.  Why?  I noticed that acupuncture keeps me relaxed and stress free. The doctor was explaining each point where he placed a needle (it did not hurt at all) then he left me laying there for 30 minutes.  I think that when I was actually falling asleep that’s when the doctor came in to take the needles off. 

I had my second session on Tuesday and this time I feel asleep. I don’t know if it was how exhausted I was feeling during the day but once my session was completed I felt so much better than the first time. 

My doctor told me that he wanted to try acupuncture with me for the whole month of July so I have scheduled appointments once a week for this month.  Here’s hoping for new opportunities and praying for a baby miracle.
