I'm back

Vacation was fantabulous and I am dearly sadden that it came to an end. We had a wonderful time while we were in California creating new memories. Al though I ended up getting the flu I did not allow that to ruin my time there. 

We started the weekend with the bacherolette party, the men had their own bachelor party of course.  It was a blast even when I was the designated driver. 

The following day we drove to Venice Beach and explored. I must say it took my breath away. Everyone and everything was lively. 

During the week J & I decided to go to Newport Beach, w/ Xena (our pup), to enjoy the sun. I even got a tan on my white legs! Yay! 

Sure enough the wedding arrived... It was a lovely day with lots of tears of joy. 

These are just some random pics. We returned home to my newly born niece. Xena loved being a watch dog while we were in California. J and our lovely niece, she's such a cutie. Then J with his little brother the day of the wedding. 

The start of our vacation was a bit dreadful for me. No one in J's family knew about our miscarriage which led to the usual questioning "When are u starting your family?" Etc, etc. tears flowed down my cheeks when I was alone. I wanted to go home because I felt like everyone was being cruel. In realty they were just clueless about our situation. J isn't opened about our journey to parenthood so how would they know. He began to see the pain in my eyes when the questions kept coming that he did something I never imagined. He opened up and talked about our miscarriage. I also had a deep conversation with my sister in law, the one who got married, and found out she also experienced a recent miscarriage. Can you say bonding time? I've known she has had trouble conceiving, secondary infertility. When u finally find the love of your life and want a family that pain can sting. It pains me to see her go through something I wouldn't wish on anyone. Whatever happens I will be right there by her side. 

As for us lining check was yesterday and everything was good to go. I ended up going to an express clinic on Tuesday because of my tonsil pain. Unfortunately they gave me a steroid injection to soothe the pain since I didn't have an infection. My Dr wasn't pleased but said since I wasn't going through IVF it was ok. Let's cross our fingers I don't get sick again. Getting nervous!!

    I think its healthy to have people you can talk to about infertility. I know it helped us a lot!
