Well, I got news this morning that my grandma passed away during the night. It's bee n a very emotional day. We will be leaving tomorrow for the funeral which is Friday. It's about 10 hours away. The thing is, I'm supposed to O on Saturday and not sure if we'll have a chance to get any alone time while we're there Sad Part of me feels selfish for thinking about ttc while we're there but I really wanted to start trying this month. A July baby would be so great because the kids would be out of school and my in-laws could come down to help out. I'm just so ready to be pregnant. I actually wanted to start trying last month but DH wasn't quite ready. My grandma adored my boys and I know she'd be thrilled for me to have another. Anyway, I guess we'll just see what happens and pray things work out!

Oh sweetie I'm sorry to hear this! It's been two years today since I lost my grandfather so I completely understand. Don't feel guilty for thinking about creating a life when you're dealing with someone passing. I think it's a good thing. I think that if your Grandma was here she'd be happy that you were trying to have another baby. I think whatever you feel like doing will be the right thing. Smile I'm sorry for you loss, hun.

I'm sorry for your loss, belindab.

FWIW, my husband and I conceived our baby the night that I found out my mom's cancer was terminal. I was pretty sure I would ovulate the next day, and I found myself thinking, I want something good to happen on this day. I can't say it was the most amazing night of our lives, but something good did happen on that day.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

Thanks so much ladies. I talked to DH about it and told him I'd really like to try if we can get some alone time. I just keep thinking that we'll go down there to say goodbye to my grandma and could come home with a new life. It just seems fitting and like you said a way to bring some happiness to a sad time. Thanks again for the kind words!
