Update on adding to our family... No, we're not pregnant yet! =)

Update... I've gone through some tests and stuff to find out why I'm not pregnant yet. My PCP wanted me to see an endocrinologist to talk about previous blood test results. My doctor has concerns that I might have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Synrome)... My sister, Renee, has PCOS and it can be genetic. I went to the Endo last Friday. She was AMAZING! I felt like she had all the time in the world for me. She told me, after we talked for a long time about my history, that I do have a mild case of PCOS. I thought that was weird. I never miss my period (there have been a few that were late, but they came), I ovulate, and all my blood tests are great. The Endo had me take the glucose test to see if my body could handle Metformin. I just got the results back today. She said my glucose levels are actually low, 80 fasting and 120 after and hour. Too low to go on Metformin, to help me get pregnant. So she suggested I go to my OB/Gyn to get started on clomid. I have an appointment on Tuesday. We'll see what he says! =) I'll let you all know too!!!!! =) =) =) =)

Marvin Loves Brenda...

Marvin has had the blessing of working from home the last 3 days, I love it when he's home! Today I had to go to the store to get some things and when I pulled up in the driveway, I saw his art work... It meant a lot to me, since I know how busy he is with work.
I love being married to Marvin!

When should we start our family?

I've had several friends ask me when Marvin and I are going to have our first baby. No... we are not pregnant, let's just clear that up right away! We want to start having kids very soon. I went to my OB/GYN for my yearly check-up. I asked him about getting pregnant. He said I could get pregnant at anytime, but he would like for me to lose at least 20 pounds before I do. So that's what I'm working on. Getting myself as healthy as possible before we get pregnant. I will keep our blog posted on my progress. We can't wait until we are blessed with a sweet baby! We love you all! Let me know if you have any questions! =)
