Admission into MommyLand

So I feel like I need to give a little background on my admission into MommyLand.

I told you before that I had been married to a frog prince. We tried for years to have a baby. In the end it was probably also the destruction of our marriage.
We tried and tried the normal way. Practice makes perfect right?
Although when your husband says "what am I a machine?" Due to all the practice it should have been a red flag. It wasn't.

We tried artificial insemination because IVF was too expensive. It didn't work.
We tried clomid and other drugs. No baby.
We gave up. I got pregnant. I miscarried at 11 weeks.
I was devastated.
Him? Not so much. We never talked about it.
I lost interest in everything but running. I started running half marathons. I guess I figured it took my mind off it. He hated me running. I planned fun vacations around running. I went by myself.

Red flags?

Nope.

We ended up divorced. Big surprise right?

Well my best friend eventually became my Prince Charming. I got pregnant. Carried to term and have my sometimes very sweet little princess.

I thought it was a fluke. The doctors told me I would not be able to get pregnant without IVF. Well I did.

Twice!
