I'm a 20 something mommy who's in love with her high school sweetheart. Times have been tough, but after 5 years we've held together tightly through literally everything.. even things kids our age shouldn't have to deal with. We have 4 fur babies at the moment (I'm going to be a cat lady when I get old, I swear) and are expecting our baby boy in October. We just recently moved into our first place and it's the greatest feeling for it all to fall into place.

I never thought I'd get to this point in my life, thinking that I couldn't get pregnant due to self-diagnosed infertility. It took us 4 1/2 years to get pregnant (though we weren't trying, we weren't protecting). I'm absolutely in love with the idea of being a mommy, it's one of those 'when I grow up I want to be..' jobs - a stay at home mom. We both live with my grandma and have for the past 4 years (I've lived here way longer), but we're finally getting on our feet and about to get our own place.. at the perfect time.

Speaking of stay at home mom, I'm so thankful that I'm able to do so.. and at the same time, it's going to be a challenge. For the past 2 1/2-3 years I've been diagnosed with and battling a horrible anxiety disorder. It came out of no where and I've been fighting with it ever since. I've been on at least 8 different medications that didn't work, they just made me sick. I stopped taking them all together.. after that didn't work (duh!) I made an appointment to try a few more and about a month before the appointment.. I was gonna be a mommy. I won't be back on medicine for awhile as I'm pregnant now and do plan on breastfeeding for at least a year.

Our little monster has long legs and is strong as ever :) He's currently grown about 5 feet since this ultrasound and is now dragging those little toes across my belly.
