Goodbye 2011, Welcome 2012!

To say this year has been hard is an understatement.  2011 has been filled with a lot of depressing days for our family, and even though it makes no logical sense, I feel that at midnight our luck just might change!!

I've been reflecting on the past year of the past few days and I want to share my biggest ups and downs.

Biggest up: Celebrating one full year of marriage and 5 years of being together with my handsome man!  I am so blessed to have a husband who cares so deeply about me and is willing to take all of this CF stuff in stride.  He never hesitates and is always taking care of me when I need it.  I am so blessed to have him!!

2nd biggest up: This blog. This blog has changed me in ways I can't even  fully comprehend.  I've become more assertive, more comfortable around others, and not as concerned about what the world thinks of me.  I have realized I have a story to tell, and I've found that in the process I am helping a few people.  I've learned to reflect on many different areas of my life, and I've found peace and happiness in writing.  In addition, I have gained some wonderful friends whom I hope to strengthen a bond with over years to come!

Biggest downer: Infertility.  Enough said.  I'm determined that the whole process is going to make me a stronger person.  It has brought my husband and I closer already though, and we are grateful that we are able to look at things positively.

2nd biggest downer: Having so much rough stuff happen to friends and family.  We have had a rough year in regards to losing people we know or having friends/family become sick. At the end of this year, 4 members of our family are in the hospital.  We have been keeping our faith and saying prayers that 2012 will bring a renewed sense of healing to those we love.  I've also suffered from hemoptysis a lot recently, and I'm hoping that it stops for good!!

Overall, I will be happy to see 2011 come to an end.  It has not been our best year! I'm hoping that 2012 brings a better health year to us and those we know and love, and I hope that it brings a positive pregnancy test into our lives as well.  I am saying prayers and keeping good thoughts for others waiting to have their babies or to get pregnant!!  Hopefully 2012 will be our year! :)


  1. Good luck!!! Hopefully 2012 brings babies into both of our lives. ;) And better health too!

  2. I hope 2012 bring you lots of joy and happiness!

  3. Thank you ladies! I hope 2012 brings all of us wonderful happiness! Cindy, 2012 is our baby year, I can feel it! :) Inhaling Hope, 2012 will be your year to meet Peanut! I can't wait to keep following your journey! :)

  4. Love the new look of the blog :)

  5. JWags, I don't know if you will see this but I was wondering if you were on Facebook. If so, there is a CF Mummy group for those who are TTC, pregnant, already mommies, or just thinking about it. It's been a great source of advice and help for me already. I believe you were saying that you're also thinking about TTC? I apologize if I'm wrong. Just curious..wanted to let you know. It's by invitation only (Secret group) so you'd have to find me on facebook (or someone else within the group) and we could invite you in. Just let me know!

  6. Lovely blog Megan! Completely agree about writing! Writing my blog has completely changed me too, made me feel a lot more confident to confront my issues and not be ashamed to talk about them or be judged! Writing takes you to a different place! I sincerely hope that 2012 is a better year for you for health and TTC! What an exciting journey you two are embarking on! Best of luck, chat soon :) xxx
