Save the Date!

After a slight mix-up on the dates we finally had our phone conference with the transfer clinic today!!

I knew we were scheduled for noon, but I had some Hobby Lobby things to attend to. Suffice it to say Hobby Lobby shoppers are now aware of the inner workings of my sex life, how fluffy my uterus is, when my next cycle will start and how excited I am to put another couple's baby all up in my lady bits.

The clinic contact was a super nice lady, but I don't think she thought I was as funny as I thought I was. She asked if I was sexually active and if so was it exclusive. I said something to the effect of "Well I'm married with two kids 5 and under, so I'm not sure how 'active' you'd consider me." I had to follow up with "Yes ma'am I'm technically allowed to have intercourse with my husband, and I'm so busted no one else would have me. So yeah exclusive is a good word."

We talked paperwork and blood work and all kind of work. I might be getting a teeny bit more blood drawn to test for chlamydia (sexy), my prolactin levels and something else. I don't know....all I heard was blah blah blah blood work blah blah husband's blood work yaadddaa yaddaaa....want to set a tentative calendar...blahty bla...wait...HELL YES!!!!

We talked it out, and we and the rest of Hobby Lobby did the math and because of where my cycle falls our transfer date will be somewhere near the beginning of November! Right now we're talking November 3, but that could change by a few days depending on Aunt Flow and some uterine lining tests and the moon phases and if Downton Abbey continues for another season. All sorts of factors.

But Baby Mama and I did a serious over the phone happy dance because at least we have a better idea of when our big day will be!!! I've never been more excited to get a box of drugs and needles in my life! Those should arrive in the mail soon. Ok that part...yeah that's a little sketchy. I'm not AS excited about the needles and drugs as the transfer date. But the needles and drugs mean that we're that much closer to transfer!!

Throw some baby dust our way because we're going to get this turkey cookin' come November!!

The Journey Begins

I think my love of pregnancy stems from my mother. She always talked about her pregnancy with me as the most beautiful time in her life. She was always so positive and uplifting when describing her pregnancies that I think she partially brainwashed me into thinking pregnancy was magical and wonderful. 
My own pregnancies were every bit as amazing as I imagined they would be. I was plagued with morning sickness before I even got my first positive pregnancy test. I had severe backaches and my cankles were glorious. My acne flared up, and my hair got so thick it seemed greasy. People kindly told me I was "all belly", but I think they actually meant that my entire body looked like a swollen gut.
But none of it distracted me from the fascination I felt the first time I took a foot to the ribcage. The entire process of growing a human being inside my body completely blows my mind to this day. 
I was the crazy pregnant lady who knew what day my baby would grow fingernails or when s…

Mommy and Me

I've been meaning to update since our group psych meeting last week, but I was in crunch mode since we decided on a last-minute trip to visit my in-laws to celebrate our nation's freedom. The irony is not lost on me.

So last week we had our group psych evaluation, which I was told about three hundred times is "an industry standard" by the lady doing our psych evaluation. I'm not sure any of us were super opposed to the meeting, so I don't know why she felt the need to assure us that EVERYTHING IS NORMAL!!! lol Umm it made me feel a bit like maybe everything was not normal. But that's psych evaluations for you.

I was a little nervous that I was going to have verbal diarrhea and just blurt out all kinds of craziness all over these people, so I made the Hubs meet me there so he could grab a muzzle if need be.
I just had so many questions and things I wanted to say to my IM since we have the weird no contact thing going. I just felt so in the dark about how t…


I've been bee bopping around in my own self-absorbed whirlwind of PTA meetings, school events, fundraisers, job searching, Girl Scout leading and the day-to-day of motherhood. I've been going to the library more with the kids and sitting out in the sun just watching them play. We've skipped a night of homework just to snuggle up with some popcorn and watch Hercules. It's been deliciously wonderful.
I've been so engrossed in my own parenting world that I almost feel like my part in creating another family was all a wonderful dream.
I almost have to do a double take when I get texts from Baby Mama about little Peanut these days. I come to a screeching halt and go "OMG!! I totally grew a baby a minute ago!"
Baby Mama has been absolutely amazing keeping me posted on all her sweet little milestones. I got to see her learning to crawl and getting her first tooth. And I'm starting to realize that I didn't just help create a baby. I actually brought a …
