Whew and in that time too Matt has quit his job to be a full time farmer and do mechanic work on the side and I am still battling my weight. It is now spring and I have become a farm widow which means Matt is unable to go to most of the appointments with me unless it is raining. Yep the joys of being a farm wife.


  1. TWW #2! Sending you patience, my friend! And of course LOTS of prayers and baby dust! XO

  2. I have to admit, farm wife sounds so incredibly romantic! (not that it doesnt have challenges, I'm sure!)

    Wishing you a peaceful and worry free 2ww!

    1. It definetly has its challenges but it has wonderful moments as well and those for me always outweigh the challenge. It is a great place to raise a family.

  3. Good Luck, and hoping for a BFP for you...


  4. Good luck in your two week wait! I've never heard the term "farm widow" made me laugh : ). My husband only goes to major, major appts with me...

    1. Haha it was something an old farmwife said one time and it just stuck! I also get to be one in the fall but I am so busy at the elevator that I don't get to get things done like I do in the fall. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Hey there, I'm here from ICLW. I also have PCOS and am in my 2ww. The of luck!

  6. Oh my goodness, I couldn't imagine being a farm wife! I know it takes a lot of work and time... I already struggle with my hubby's monthly business trips. Congrats on being in your TWW!! I hope you get your BFP!
