A Little Bit About Me

I love reading the “About” section of everyone’s blogs. I love knowing a little bit about the person behind the blog. So, I thought I would periodically tell a little more about myself than what I have written in my “About” section.

me This is me! I am 54 years old, happily married to Gary for 31 years, a special education teacher and a mother of 4.

My children are a gift from God that I am abundantly thankful for every single day. My husband and I were praying for children for four years. My doctor discovered that I was not ovulating regularly and suggested I take Clomid – a fertility medication. I took Clomid for four months and still no pregnancy. So, she said, “Let’s give Pergonal  - another fertility medication -  a try.” One shot of Pergonal and I was pregnant! I was so happy I was shouting it from the rooftops!

My precious little bundles arrived six weeks premature. The girls were healthy. My son developed an infants form of colitis called NEC, but fortunately he fought through it and won. Five weeks after they were born everyone came home. Smile

It wasn’t easy, but I would do it all again in a heartbeat. Red heartRed heartRed heartRed heart

  1. Wow all at once, My sister had triplets, and I had twins, but that looks hard and rewarding at the same time. Congrats to them on their graduation. You must be very proud.

    1. Thank you! Yes, we are very proud of our children. You have twins! I love connecting with other mothers of multiples. My husband and I had the quads and six months later his brother and his wife had twins. Sort of like you and your sister. My in-laws had zero grandchildren and in six months they had six grandchildren. Life certainly is full of wonderful surprises!

      Thank you for visiting my blog! I am on my way over to yours now.

      Have a wonderful day!


  2. I had a friend who had 3 little boys. She wanted a girl soooo bad. After she had a miscarriage, she had problems getting pregnant again, so she took Clomid. She got pregnant and haaaaaaad: Twin Boys!

  3. Oh my, FIVE boys! God bless her!

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I am on my way to yours right now.
