It has been over a month since I posted, and I couldn't bear to see April go by without a single post. So you are going to get the short and sweet version of our lives. This month has been busy at work as Brian has been helping people with tax questions and issues, and I have been preparing my students for end of year testing (yuck!). They both sound terrible, don't they? Hopefully, we can leave a lot of it behind at the end of the month!
As far as weight loss goes, I have lost 22 pounds! I am feeling great and I am really excited that I am moving closer to my goal of being "a healthy weight to get pregnant" Along that note, we are currently in the midst of National Infertility Week, April 24-May1. I don't know why it only gets a week, when it effects so many people, but you have to be grateful for what you have. I want to share something with you that made me feel like everything I have thought and felt through our struggle to get pregnant is normal. I know we have been trying for less than 2 years, which is nothing compared to many people out there. But it's hard, and it's real, and it's a battle we fight everyday. I hope you will take a few minutes and watch the video she made.

Alright May, I'm ready for ya!
