It's My SITS Day!

Welcome! I am so excited about this! I have trolled SITS for awhile now checking out tons of blogs and it is pretty awesome to now be one of them!

My name is Ashley, I'm 27, I met Hubby when I was 19 and we got hitched when I was 23. We have twins, Ocean (Oshy) and Ever (Peanut) who were born full term and will be two on Earth Day. I work full time with kids but I always dream of being with my own kids full time. Our spiritual beliefs are complicated so I won't mention it in this short synopsis.

I started this blog as a place share and vent my infertility journey. The other thing I did here was find so many sources of support. People in the real world who have not experienced it or known someone that have experienced are generally not great supporters because they either don't know how to be supportive or they don't get why not being able to have babies is "such a big deal." So . . . .I turned to the interwebs and have found a great source of support and free therapy! I had no idea I would have trouble getting knocked up at the age of 23. It has made me feel sad, angry, guilty, worthless, jealous and then eventually grateful and happy because we have the twins now and they are super! We would love a big family and are back in the trenches and recently had a failed fertility treatment. Boo. So now I feel sad, angry, guilty, worthless, jealous, happy, grateful and in love with O&E all at once.

The second most popular course of discussion on this blog is mommyhood! It has really surprised me. I absolutely love it, but I think I have made my fair share of new mommy mistakes. Hubby, the twins and I are just all trying to figure this out together and be the family we want to be and that works for us.

  1. Happy SITS Day. It's pretty amazing how supportive the blogosphere really is for one another. We, as bloggers, have a truly important role in not only opening ourselves to the world, but in teaching others who may not have a clue in what we may be going through at the time.

  2. Happy SITS Day! Don't beat yourself up over any 'mistakes' you think you've made. We all make mistakes. Just keep trying to make today better than the last!

  10. happy SITS! I love your blog title.
    I went through two years of primary infertility, we had our daughter, then we adopted our son, and we've been through another 2 years of secondary infertility.

    It's a tough journey. Thanks for being willing to share yours!

  17. Happy SITS day! Your blog piqued my interest because I, too, am a mama of twins (clomid/IUI). The girls were born vaginally at 37 weeks on the nose on April 18 of this year. Juliet was 5lbs 8oz and Willa was 6lbs 6oz. Have a super day!

  18. Congrats on your SITS day! Enjoy the spotlight. My niece had IVF a few times. Two were successful; she has two beautiful girls, the younger of which will be a year old in February. However, she is expecting a boy (actually unexpected!) at the end of this month! That came as a shock, for sure. Your twins are adorable and all the photos on your blog are precious!

  23. First of all...cute kids!! Thank you for sharing your experience and blog today. I can definitely relate to things not turning out as we had planned. We adopted our baby girl two years ago, and even though it's not what I thought my path in life would look like, I wouldn't trade it for anything! Good luck with everything!
