What change a year has brought


2012 was a year of subtle, but important change. I didn’t change jobs or do anything drastic like that, like I had in 2011. 2012 was quiet and subdued for the most part, it was a year of preparation for what is to come in 2013.


In May, Edgar completed his double-major in Business and Music, and began a journey toward a commission in the U.S. Navy. Shortly after my last post, he received his professional recommendation, then his final select letter, then official swore in a few weeks ago. He will be leaving in a few short weeks to begin his training as a Naval officer.

Around that same time, we discovered another equally exciting pieces of news, which has turned our world upside down in the best way possible:



Baby Rollins has been given an estimated due date of 8/14/13, though given my double uterus, could be expected to come in July!

This is why I haven’t posted lately. I have been sick between the flu and morning sickness and relentless fatigue, but this week I am working to push forward through the progesterone-induced fog and get this house ready for our impending move, and revive my writing.

Sometime soon, I will go into a bit more detail of the changes I went through before getting pregnant (hint: it involves a lot of eggs and butterfat). For me, conceiving without medication or struggle, while having PCOS, was a big deal, and it deserves its own post.


What major change has the last year brought for you?

  1. Congratulations! Looking forward to the post as I’ve been trying to conceive with PCOS for quite some time with no luck yet.

    Congratulations! I just stumbled on your website and was surprised to read your most recent post. What a small world! I also have PCOS and a split (though not double) uterus. I did not know that I had that cute little defect until we had to make an emergency room visit and the ultrasound tech said, “Your baby is just fine! See? It’s right there in your let uterus.” I was so ecstatic until my human anatomy classes kicked in and I said, “Wait. What?” It was a rough and scary pregnancy, but so worth the little miracle baby boy that I have! I cannot wait to look around your website and get some new recipes to try. Hope to see you back on here as well!

    • Thanks so much for your comment! I admit I’ve put the blog on the backburner with all the intense craziness over the past 6 months, but you’ve inspired me to update! I still hope to write that post about my experience with pregnancy with PCOS and UD, as well as other more “fun” recipe posts. 🙂
