Ordinary Me

I'm just an ordinary girl living a pretty ordinary life to most people looking in.  Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to grow up, get married, and have a family.  Not exactly the picture of a "modern woman" but it's what I wanted and I'm okay with that.

Before I became a wife and mama, I was a teacher.  I taught for three years in an inner city school and it completely changed my life.  I put my teaching career on hold when I got married and relocated with my hubby so that we could start a family.

Well, that's when things started getting more complicated.  I knew pretty quickly that something was wrong but it took a year and 3 doctors before I finally got to the one who diagnosed me with PCOS and started the journey that it would take for us to have a baby.  After a year and a half of treatment, one surgery, one miscarriage, and six cycles of fertility treatments, we finally got what we were waiting for; a healthy baby girl (Bean).

So now here I am, 11 months later, living the life that I always wanted and kind of in shock that I'm finally here.  The road that got me here may have been totally different then what I had planned, but it made me who I am now and I'm okay with that.  I'm so happy to finally have my ordinary little family and my ordinary life, and I know that in reality, it isn't ordinary at all.
