On a sad note, our dog is sick. He was diagnosed with Lymphoma. We are devastated. We have him on a special diet and meds, so we are hoping to prolong his life as long as possible. He might only have 30 days though. Are daughter really wants him to meet the new baby. We all hope so. Poor Billy, he is the best dog ever. Hang in there. We love you

We go for our nuchal fold testing in about 2 weeks. I am very excited. We will get another ultrasound, so that will make me feel a little better. Im just so nervous still.
My daughter had a play date yesterday and we decorated Easter cookies with her. In the middle of decorating, she says " Mom, since Dad got to do it with me, do you think I can cut the umbilical cord for the baby?" I about fell out of my seat! My 10 year old wants to cut thie cord? So sweet and funny. I hadnt even really thought about the delivery and how involved she would be. I guess Z and I will have to talk and see what we think is best for her. Anyway, I thought that was pretty cute.
Other than that I cant think of anything else. I will be back!!

We had a busy weekend. My daughters school Carnival, that I help with was Sunday. It was a lot of fun, but exhausting! I am still tired. I hope I can catch up on my sleep this week.

Today I am 6wks1day pregnant and am really starting to feel crappy. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling like I was going to puke, but never did. The awful feeling just lingered for about an hour. Not what I want to be doing at 3 in the morning. This morning it is even worse. Dont get me wrong...I am not complaining. I have waited too long for this to happen to start complaining. I just dont remember feeling this bad. oh well.
We go for our first ultrasound on wed. evening. We are SO excited! I am still nervous, but I feel really good about this. I will update on wed. after our appointment. Keep your fingers crossed!

We had our Girl scout " Father Daughter Dance" last night. It was so fun. The girls all felt so special. It was really neat to see all the Dads dancing with their daughters. Our daughter had a wonderful time. When we got home we told K that we had something for her. She was very curious. We handed her a little package. Inside of it was a book, with the title "Im a Big Sister". As she opened it Z asked her "Have you read that one already?". She screamed when it set in. She is one happy camper, just like the rest of us. I know it is early to start telling people, but I figure I will want all the support I can get if something bad were to happen, so why not tell people. Im not superstitious, and it makes me happy to tell people, and I think I deserve to be happy. So world...Im Pregnant!

We havent told many people yet, just our parents and sibling, and a coupe friend of ours that know what we have been through. I am still nervous that something might happen, I think I will be nervous throughout my pregnancy.
Thank you for sweet comments. I love knowing that there are some out there reading this. It always made me feel better reading about others struggles with infertility, it made me feel less alone. I hope I can help just one person get through a tough time, and give someone hope.

Ok, so I have only seen these with one pink line, this one has two????
Holy Crap people! Im pregnant. I got a BFP at 11 dpo, I had already given up hope, but I had some extra pregnancy tests, so I peed. Then there it was, a light, but pink line! I thought I was losing my mind. I wasnt. I have since taken 4 more and they are all positive. I cannot believe this day has come. I will update more when I have some time, and my brain is functioning again!

So here I sit and wait and pray of course. I hope the time flies by so I can test!
On a happier note, Valentines Day is Saturday and I am very excited! We never go out to eat because its just too crazy, but we always have a nice dinner together a home, including our daughter. She loves Valentines Day.
Happy Love day to you all!

As for us. I am officially 1 dpo. The injections went well, and so did the trigger shot. I have a good feeling about this cycle! I haven't felt good about a cycle in awhile, so maybe this is a good sign. I will keep you all updated. I will be POAS(peeing on a stick) as soon as I can. That will be whenever the trigger shot will be out of my system. They will give you a false positive on a pregnancy test.
So probably in about 9 days, I will be posting about that. I'm sure I'll be back with a list of imaginary 2WW symptoms!

Z and I leave tomorrow for Missouri. Z's grandmother passed away. We are very sad, but at peace with the fact that she is no longer suffering. What a wonderful woman she was. She was quite possible the strongest woman I have ever met. We will miss her very much.
I will be away from the computer for a few days, but will update on my injections when I return.

As for me, Im still not pregnant. I am hoping 2009 will bring us our baby. We have quite a few friends who are expecting. I am truly happy for them, but I wont lie, it makes me sad as well. It makes me sad for me. I feel like I have been through enough, I deserve the right to be selfish sometimes. It is the hardest when shopping for a baby gift. I see all the things that I long to buy, and wonder why I dont get to. I go through ups and downs. I know there are so many others going through the same thing as us, but I still feel so alone.
Here to starting fresh! I hope the new year brings you all you hope for.
