Fight Like a Girl: Grateful

Despite all my hope for the future now that we are on medicine, I have been feeling a bit down lately about our situation and struggle to get pregnant. It's so easy to forget the good things that are going on in our lives.

1 // Rob has been amazing this last year. He is so much more than I ever thought I deserved. He is an awesome man full of endless love and support. No matter what is going on in our lives, we are solid.


2 // Addison is pretty dang awesome. She is amazing and makes me smile everyday.

3 // Although sometimes I hate this house and tell Rob that I'm ready to move now, I'm grateful ta we are able to own our own house and have a roof over our heads.

4 // Even though we have to go through secondary infertility, Rob has amazing insurance that covers almost all of our treatment and medicines which means we are able to do a little more and for longer.

5 // Being able to stay at home is amazing for me, even more so in light of all that happened last year with Addison. That good job of Rob's not only gives us good insurance but also provides enough for me to hang out with a pretty cool kid all day.


 6 // We are both blessed with amazing families. Plus Addison has two sets of grandparents who adore her and want to spend time with her.

7 // Despite the secondary infertility and PCOS, we are all healthy. Since the regression, Addie has been a happy and healthy kid who just keep progressing.

8 // Technology is pretty awesome too. I'm grateful for the the ability to keep up with family and friends who don't live close by, or even with those that live close by. I'm grateful that I can vent out my frustrations to my husband in the middle of the day via text when I'm at my wits end with Addison. And let's face it, sometimes it's nice to have the TV to distract the kid when it's just been one of those days.

9 // We are always well-fed every day. We are never without food, and can even have the luxury fun foods around the house. Although we don't keep a lot of snacks around the house because we aren't big on snacking, we are able to keep them and enjoy a snack occasionally.

10 // I am grateful for my Stella cat. Although she doesn't pick up on cues quite like a dog might that cat sure does cuddle well when I need her. We've had her for four years and I love that silly cat.


Every day I have to remind myself to to be grateful. It's easy to see all the disappointments and heartaches, and honestly we have been full of those things around here lately. But the truth is that we have a lot to be thankful and a lot to be happy about. It's a constant every day battle to remember that while we go through all our current battles. But together as family we push ahead and we grow stronger as individual people and as a family.

xo, B
