Thanksgiving 2014

Thanksgiving 2014

The last time I was here I had great IVF news and then everything seemed to go downhill fast. I was diagnosed with a bad case of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) where I gained 15 pounds of fluid over night and the fluid started going into my lungs. It was an extremely painful experience and I was on bed rest for almost 2 weeks. No fun! But Tony was absolutely amazing and took such good care of me.

I was nervous that I wouldn’t feel better in time for Thanksgiving, but I woke up on Thursday morning feeling almost back to normal. We went up to Woodstock to have our traditional Thanksgiving with my Dad, Marcella, and my sister’s family. The food was amazing and the company couldn’t have been better. We are a fun group!


Lylah, Katie, I


We always grill our Turkeys and cooked one on the Green Egg this year.

Tony’s parents came to visit us Thursday-Friday, which was nice because we don’t get to see them very often. Wendy, Tony’s Mom joined my Mom and I black friday shopping and then out to lunch to have an early birthday celebration for my Mom.

After the birthday celebration I came home to a fun #SweatPink package! I am now a #SweatPink Ambassador and they sent me the cutest holiday ornament with some pink shoelaces to give to my clients. I love them!


I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

  2. Oh, sorry to hear about OHSS. I’m glad you felt better on Thanksgiving day and still had a great holiday with your family. I believe everything will work out for you to get pregnant according to God’s plan 🙂

  3. Glad you are doing better and was able to enjoy the Thanksgiving festivities. 15 pounds of fluid? Yikes!
