Finally... [12 Jun 2011|08:49am]
[ mood | jubilant ]

13 months later, I am pregnant.

After several months of failing to conceive at home (as we did with Kansas), and also several months of failed attempts to conceive with the help of the doctors, we finally got a positive blood test! In the end, it took a barrage of fertility meds (clomid, progesterone, estrogen, and ovidril) and a well-timed IUI with a frozen specimen that J had deposited at the sperm bank for us. At the time of the insemination, I had two big, healthy eggs. We have to wait a few weeks to see how many babies are growing in me :)

We are totally over the moon! It was really starting to wear on me emotionally... trying month after month, and being disappointed month after month. Its like we'd spend two weeks of every month waiting and anxious, and two weeks being disappointed and sad. The fertility meds were making me extra-super moody and emo, so that wasn't helping the process one bit!

I am so glad to have that phase over with, and very anxious to have this next phase rolling along. I bought a maternity sundress yesterday. Okay, I know it's super early, but the dress is way cute and doesn't look at all like a maternity dress. I just LOVE that I get to hang my gut out and not worry about looking fat, LOL!

Random tidbit: New Baby is due February 18th... KJ's 2nd birthday. OOPS! We can't wait to expand our awesome family. <3

I said goodbye to one of my best pals this month.

We shared twelve marvelous years together. Life will certainly be different without him.

2010 in Review [09 Jan 2011|08:50am]

1. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?
Became a mom. Went on plane trips to the same place twice in one year. Well more than twice, lol.

2. Did you keep your New Year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I did succeed at a couple goals I set for myself this year, though they weren't really resolutions. I built up my arm muscles and I managed to maintain my weight all year. For the next year, I just want to keep my body healthy, take my vitamins with more regularity, and (continue to) try and get pregnant.

It is unconstitutional for the majority to vote away the rights of the minority. It's a good day for equality!

California's Proposition 8 has been STRUCK DOWN as unconstitutional.
