About the blog

Welcome to our Life Under Construction! I hope that you enjoy reading through and can find something to peak your interest! I started this blog as an outlet, a diary of sorts, to document our family’s journey. Not only do I write about struggles of family life and the turmoils of motherhood, but I also use this blog as a recipe book, a review site and a how-to crafting corner. Together, Javier and I have three children, our boys Sylas and Ivan and a little girl named Amalia. Come join us on our journey and welcome to our crazy, funny, busy, lovely life under construction!

Each post is put into a category. If you’re looking for something in particular, see the categories or if you just want to read up, see the recent posts and the archives. For tutorials and recipes for foods and crafts, see the recipes/tutorials tab. For day in the life happenings see the DITL tab. For mommy rambles, see the respective tab. If you are looking for motivational, uplifting posts, see the God stops tab. And for all things pregnancy/TTC see the Family in the making tab.

  1. Hi Maddi, thank you for sharing your story and giving me hope. I have had three consecutive miscarriages in the last year and there’s nothing my husband and I want more than a baby. I too was diagnosed with MTHFR C677t. I have read some doctors recommend heparin or lovenox but my obgyn says those are myths.. I don’t know what to think? I’m currently taking prenatal and baby aspirin. What else do you recommend for me to do?


    • What kinds of testing have you had done? I was tested for several different things that all came up negative. My problem was PCOS causing low progesterone. In the end, all I needed was a supplement of progesterone. Do you follow your cycle and do any type of charting? Getting to know your body is a good first step.


      • Oh I thought you had MTHFR… Yes I was tested for a bunch of stuff too but that was the only thing I came back positive to. I do follow my cycle getting pregnant is not my issue, it’s keeping it. :-/


      • I do have the MTHFR gene mutation also. But it wasn’t the main factor that caused my miscarriages. I’m pretty sure that it caused a sub chorionic hemorrhage with my first pregnancy though. My doctor told me that he would give me lovenox if I really wanted it but I decided to just do baby aspirin thru the whole pregnancy and it seemed okay.
