We started becoming more diligent April 2011 with trying to conceive more so no longer preventing. I have irregular cycles due to being overweight.. No signs of PCOS or Endo just being over weight.. I'm currently in the process of losing weight by way of Medifast.. Restarting this week and in hopes of losing the 94lbs I have left to lose and hopefully conceiving along the way. I have a stock of IC Preg/Ovulation tests since hubby and I are more of the "let nature take it's course, in due time god will bless us" We plan to seek further testing this summer should we not conceive but for now.. I'm losing weight and taking Vitamins to assist with becoming healthy for our future little ones.

My Favorite Verse is: 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 ..

I look forward to hanging out with you ladies and may we all pray 2012 God will guide us and he is worthy and receives all the glory!
Hi Nikki! I pray for God's guidance to you in achieving your goal and of course, you'll have us all cheering you on! Looking forward to following your journey!

Ok ladies, I'll do my formal introduction and husband story all in one

My name is Vanessa. I am 25 years old. The biggest things in my life right now are our faith, our family, reading, knitting, watching sports with my husband, and praying for our first little blessing! Let's start a bit with the faith, my husband and I both grew up christians. And our families were members of the same denomination in different cities in California when we met. Next, family... my mom and dad had my older sister when they were 17/18 and then me when my mom was just 19. Then they split and my mom remarried and we went with her. My mom and step-dad have been married ever since and have had 8 more kids. Yes, 8! My dad tried to be a part of my life growing up but my mom didn't let him. He remarried about 9/10 years ago to a wonderful woman and they now have 3 kids together. When my husband and I married I reached out to him and its been amazing. That is a story for another time! My husbands parents met at a concert and his dad is 11 years older than his mom. His dad didn't know for the longest time how much younger she was, he just didn't ask because she looked older and was really mature. They got married and had 5 kids. Jake, my husband is the oldest of his siblings. Ok, the reading, knitting and watching sports with my husband are all hobbies. If you are a crochetter or knitter and are on Ravelry my user name is Vrothenbuhler and you should add me! As far as praying for our first little blessing... I always wanted to be a mom early in life. My husband and I got married real young and we weren't ready at first. But after a few years we felt ready and tried for 8 months. I didn't get pregnant for those 8 months and it took a big toll on us emotionally. We decided to take a break from trying. Then last year in early June we went to one of my husbands cousins wedding and afterwards he mentioned wanting to have a baby. At first I wasn't sure if he was serious SERIOUS or just thinking about it / joking. Then two days later he brought it up again and wanted to talk about it. I was estatic! I had been feeling the same way but we are living with some family right now to help them out financially (both his aunt and uncle our out of jobs right now) and I hadn't brought it up because we couldn't really move out right away. But we had a really good talk and we prayed about it for a week and then talked and talked and then we decided that we wanted to start trying seriously again I thought that because we are young and healthy (we don't have smoking or drinking issues) that it'd happen for sure within 3 months. But Jan will be our 8th month of trying. At first I was really excited but lately I have felt really dicouraged and haven't been talking about it to anyone, even my husband. But, anyways... I'm writing a novel here! Let me tell you about how I met my husband!

In 2003 I went to a snow day that our churches threw. My older sisters friend Jeremy introduced Jake (my husband) to my sister and I. But at the time I just thought of him as my sisters friends because Jeremy was his best friend, and Jeremy was my sisters friend. Little did I know he liked me right away We didn't talk again until that Summer at our churches youth camp. He was there as a "counselor" because it was a family friend's horse ranch that hosted the camp and counselors got to attend for free. He was 15 at the time and I was 16. When I heard he was a counselor I laughed because I didn't think there was anything a 15 year old guy going to teach me! Nonetheless, we bacame good friends that camp and exchanged contact information at the end. Jake and Jeremy actually started coming over to my families house a look and both grew close to all of us. A few years later Jake started asking me to be his girlfriend, but my parents were adament about "courting" and waiting until we were older. So I had to keep telling him no. Eventually my dad (who really liked Jake) said yes. And we got together. At the time I was living in Sacramento and he was going to UCLA in Los Angeles. But because we had known each other for several years and he had been over at my family's house so much we progressed quickly. We started dating April 22, 2006 and got married September 9, 2006! We are way way way closer now than we were when we got married. We are more mature, we understand each other better. I couldn't be happier with him it seems! He is a true blessing. I don't have a proposal story, because he didn't propose. And thats ok Whats important is that we try to glorify God in our marriage and hopefully someday in our parenting!

Sorry this was so long!

My name is Sarah, I love the Lord and my family with all my heart. I have a wonderful hubby who stands by my side and is pretty much the opposite of me, like Paula Abdul says , "opposites attract"...lol

I love to dance!!! Usually the only time I get to dance is at the gym in my Zumba class

Anyone coupon? I started couponing in April, I caught the bug while watching Extreme Couponing on TLC. It's so amazing how many things you can get for free!!!

I have a beautiful stepdaughter named Taylor, who is 9 yrs old from my hubby. Even though I didn't give birth to her, she is mine. She lives with us 100% of the time. I will go into that at a later date.

My niece, Marissa, who is 13, is currently living with us for her 8th grade year. I talked to my husband and felt that the Lord would want us to take her for a year, to help her physically, emotionally and most of all spiritually. Marissa was brought up in a not so normal situation which led her took look to food for comfort. She weighed in at 217lbs on Sept 1st, that was her first day with us. I'm glad to say since she has been with us for 4 months now she has lost 30lbs, is becoming a nice young christian lady, and is treating her parents with more respect.

I also have two dogs. My dog, Simba is a 4 yr old golden retriever. I got him on Mother's Day of 2007, my husband new I always wanted that kind of dog and surprised me with it. He loves boxers, so on his birthday in Nov of 2007, I got him Layla. They are so adorable and love each other so much.

Wow, sorry so long.

BTW, that's my niece in the pic with Tay and I
It's so wonderful that you were able to take your niece in and help her to get a new lease on life!!

I'm brand-new at the couponing thing... I also watched Extreme Couponing and was very intrigued! However, I'm getting to a slow start. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Vanessa! You have an amazing story too! What a blessing to be able to reconnect with your father after the time apart! (I met mine for the first time at 22)

I like to crochet as well! I get strange looks sometimes from friends, but it's soothing! Cross stitch is great too!

I'm actually really glad to have met someone else who got to know their dad in their adulthood as well! Finally, someone who can understand the awkwardness of it all! My husband tries, but he just doesn't get how I feel Have you gotten close to your dad? I have visited with my dad for a week at a time over the past three years. I was just in TX with him, his wife, and my 3 siblings at the beginning of November and I am going back on the 25th this month! I am so excited. Just this past trip as we said goodbye he called me his baby-girl and said I love you. Meant the world to me

Are you on Ravelry?

I didn't want to mix business and pleasure, but when he asked if he could take me out - I quickly said yes lol. When my 6 week rotation was over we only saw each other once a week because we were 5 hours apart. I was invited to the White House in February of 2011. Little did I know that hubby was going to propose before I went inside! I got my doctorate in pharmacy in May 2011 and we got married in July. I know for a fact that God made him for me and vice versa. He is definitely an answered prayer.
That is so awesome Hun!!! God is definitely the best matchmaker
What kind of athlete is your hubby? My hubby is a sports nut, he used to play basketball in school and used to coach the high schools girls basketball team. Sports is in his blood...haha. That's where we are different, I'm not to much of a sports fan. I'm currently a Raider fan by marriage

Ok, you can take a breathe now...lol. Thanks for sharing your story. I see you are in the bay area, so am I...I live in San Jose.

No need to fear sweetie, the doctors told me it can take up to a year for a healthy couple to conceive...you still got time.

So, since your the first proclaimed knitter, does that mean we can go through you to make our babie beanies When we get out BFP's
