Don't let the smile fool you, I have been ridiculously sick the past two and a half weeks. For those that don't know I have a slight (staying hopeful) infertility problem. You can read more about it here. My husband and I made the decision to start medicine. It was actually a bigger decision that you would think. Of course we want babies and we are ready for them but I think my biggest fear in taking medicine was/is that it won't work. That I'll just be sick and moody and gain nothing from it. But you never know until you try, so over two weeks ago I started Metformin. It makes me pretty sick, like nothing sounds good and it feels better not to eat or even think about eating type of sick.
Luckily the food lover that is deep inside me forces me to eat anyways. I am also very lucky that it doesn't make me more sick, or other types of sick. It hasn't effected my hormones, so I count myself lucky once again.
I am actually very hopeful that it'll work. After three years of trying, I feel like there is light at the end of this tunnel. One thing that I have learned is, no matter what you are going through, whatever the trial, there is always hope. Maybe not in the way you would expect, but there is. God knows you so completely and wants you to be happy. I know that to be true. 



  1. Chel, I'm sorry it's making you so sick, it seems like it takes so much longer than you'd like for your system to not HATE YOUR GUTS all the time because of that Metformin. You would never know you feel crappy though, you look AMAZING. (as always) Love you!!

  2. What a sweet post! I'll keep you in my prayers! You look lovely by the way, as always!

  3. You look so classy and chic! I'm sorry you're sick from the meds, but I'm hopeful for you!
