We're just so healthy...

...that our doctors cannot find any reason why we aren't getting prego. LOL

Okay for all you confused people out there - please scroll down and read previous blog entitled "Fishing for Fertility" and then nod your head and say "Ahhhhh okay I get it." Thanks.

I just wanted to give the update. This week I underwent some more testing - blah. Can I just say I'm really tired of getting poked and prodded?? Will felt so bad for me, he told me after my last test on Monday that he would take me wherever I wanted to eat. Duh - the only thing I could think of, off-hand, was a DQ cookie dough blizzard. Wish granted.

Testing done:
HSG (ouch), ultrasound, pelvic x-rays, swimmer count, blood tests, paps, oral, etc, etc, etc,
Results:
Healthy, healthy, and healthy! In fact, we were both healthier than like all of my dr's patients combined that come in.

So....there can only be a few conclusions. The big one that pops into our heads is that the man upstairs isn't ready to send us children yet.

The other one is that vague unexplained reasoning why many people don't get pregnant: STRESS. And yeah I do sort of have a very stressful job.

At this point, we are very happy to hear that we are both in great health though. So at least we know that there isn't something "wrong" with us. In the meantime, I have a busy fall coming up with several concerts, some film-scoring projects and Will and I have been considering investing in some real estate. I would love it if I could replace my management job with my music, which is why I'm booking up my schedule to perform a lot this fall/winter - to see if it's even possible.

Till next blogging,
Jenni

I'm glad everything came back normal for you guys! Pregnancy is so wierd, I swear. I have so many friends, myself included, that it has taken FOREVER to get prego! And then one day, probably when you decide to throw in the towel, it happens! Nick always tell people that "we are practicing." SOrry, probably too much info! But, keep practicing. You know practice makes perfect, right? Just kidding! I love reading what's going on with you guys. Looks like a fun weekend!

Will & Jenni- Hey! This is Jenni [formely Hawkins] Stephanie told me to check out your blog... since we havent heard too much from you guys in a while!! I love blogs- they are such a fun way to keep updated with everyone. We ran into Daniel a few months back while their daughter was having surgery at Emanuel the same time as our son. Anyway, look foward to hearing from you guys.. it looks like you have been having a good time seeing the sites!
About your actual post, Im really sorry to hear what you are going through, just know that whatever form it comes in Heavenly Father will always bless you with children. I wish you guys the best. Hang in there.

Will and Jenni, I want you both to know that I am sorry to hear that you are still not blessed with children. When Andy and I got married the doc told me that I would have a hard time conceiving because of some female problems. And after I have my first child it would correct itself. Well the strange thing is that it did not. I still have a hard time getting prego. But Andy and I have found that if he goes away on deployment and comes home wham 9 months later we are having a baby. And it has worked twice now. So maybe you should try a short seperation and have a nice reunion together and that might help. But the main thing is to try some stress releasing exercises. Like massage together. Something you can do together to relieve the stress that you have in your life. I love you both and it will happen when the time is right and you will love that child more than words can say. Talk to you real soon.

Healthy is good. Now keep on doing what you are doing and hopefully you will keep being healthy when you have kids. It is hard to go camping and backpacking with little ones. It is even hard sometimes to just go to the store. So enjoy it while you can. And Will, next time you have one planned with the fellas give me a call.
