Hi there, and welcome! I am Marixsa*, a 30-something gal who’s been married to my wonderful husband, Jake*, since 2003. Jake and I have been trying to conceive our first baby since 2011 (got a sec? see our TTC Timeline!) and this blog is a snapshot into our TTC sojourn. In the meantime, Jake and I are proud parents to a lovely ball of feline furry awesomeness (Mega Fluff*) and a neurotic, enthusiastic 65-pound lap dog (Puppy*).
The doctors have ominously given us a 3 – 4% chance of conceiving naturally. But our faith in the Lord is stronger than in man’s medicine. It has kept us pressing on through the years, and we are petitioning God to—in His timing—bless us with the desire of our hearts.
Few people in my real life know about our fertility struggles. I started this blog as an outlet to navigate the maze of dealing with stage IV endometriosis, all-things-TTC, infertility treatments, miscarriages, surgeries, emotions, and other unexpected bits of life that creep up in between.
*Names changed. I like my privacy.
