That's me. I'm Elle.
I am a student, and I work full time.
I have gorgeous children, who make my world go around. I'll have another one this summer.
In Febuary 2012, I was told that I had a pituitary adenoma, which is a tumor in the pituitary gland. Because of this, I started treatment to get rid of it, which made me extremely ill. I discontinued treatment, and was told that unless I resumed treatment and got rid of the tumor, I would no longer be able to have children. I was devestated at the loss of my fertility, but couldn't physically handle the treatments to get rid of it.
On November 26, 2012, I took a pregnancy test. I'd been considering it, but wasn't getting my hopes up. A friend swore I was pregnant, and I swore it was impossible - so I picked up a cheapie test to prove her wrong and get her to drop the subject. Quickly, the test showed positive. I showed her, half panicked, and she ran to her bathroom and pulled out a test she had. When I took it, the second line showed up before I even got the cap on it. My miracle baby, Lola Eleanor, is due July 31, 2013.
