Highs & Lows

Some of the things in my life lately have made me think about posting something like this.  

What are some of the highs (or achievements)  of your relationship with your DH and what are some of the lows (or failures) you've had since you've been married?

~Married 7.10.09~
TTC #1 Since 3.9.10
Dx PCOS 8.30.10
3 failed IUI cycles Feb 11 to April 11, IVF #1 cycle start 6-18-12, ER 7-3-12 (10 retrieved, 8 attempted fertilization, 7 growing), ET 7-8-12 - 2-2ab transferred. Success! Due 3-26-13

Re: Highs & Lows

  • My Highs - 

    We managed to raise a wonderful puppy who still can make us laugh and who will love us unconditionally.

    We've trudged through a hospital stint and are stronger because of it.

    We found out we could have issues with TTC - and instead of it stopping or stalling our efforts, it's only made them (and us) stronger.

    My Lows -

    I lost my job.  It's been very difficult on us, and the cause of much of my stress.  Now I finally have another, and it hasn't really changed a thing.

    You know what our weekly fight is about?  Cleaning.  He'll take one room and I'll take another and guess what happens?  He asks me where things should go from that room, so it takes me twice as long to clean one, because I'm actually cleaning two!

    And training Sirius.  He really wanted to pee wherever he wanted to.  It took a LONG time to finally get him to be where he is today, and there were times we both thought "Was this a mistake?"
