Saturday, Feb. 7th= T-minus 24 hours!
So..DH is on his way home from Iraq! I couldn't be more excited. After 14.5 months of being apart I'm quite ready for him to be home! They've already changed his flight SEVERAL times and I'm getting quite irritated about it. But I guess that is the army life. Anyway, as of right now, DH thinks he'll be home sometime TOMORROW MORNING! :) YAY! SO hopefully by this time tomorrow we'll be well...:lovebed: :D we'll see though!!
Another realization has come to my attention also....In potentially 30 ish days (i think I've already O'd this month..) I could be pregnant!! THIS IS INSANE! I never thought this would happen...haha! We've been waiting for this "chance" for MONTHS now! I'm so exited to be able to move our furniture in and what not.
Last night I had a dream that I was pregnant and I went running downstairs to tell DH and he was so happy and we had furniture and our house was our home not a shell with nothing! haha. I'm so super excited to move all our furniture in although I'm bummed because it'll make everything seem so much smaller! haha I've gotten used to every room being empty and the living room and dinning room being empty and soon they'll have furniture and be all filled up haha. And I'm kind of bummed, our living room is kind of small and our couches are pretty big so we'll see how lost they look in the room. When we bought them we had to fill a 15 X 24' room so they needed to be "large" now we've got like a 15'X17' room so we'll see! Ah well, we can always sell them and buy a different set if it's too large. I'm just excited to see it all come together basically- it'll be nice nice nice nice!! So keep your fingers crossed about DH getting home on time :) YAY!
Cycle One- Day One TTC!!!
Wow. What a title. Day 1, Cycle 1. Bittersweet! I've waited for this moment to be true forever...I've dreamed of "having babies" since I was a toddler. And here it is. Our chance.
Dh is home and loving it. It's so so so nice to having him home again. He loves the new house and lately we've been working on making it "ours". We've started painting, bought more "grown up" furniture (YAY!!) and hanging all our art prints. It's really starting to feel like our "home". It's so exciting.
I took a pregnancy test last night, just for fun :) My cycle had hit 31 days and so I was just seeing if perhapppps we got lucky :) I think that it was probably the most distinctive negative I've ever seen :) And this morning AF decided to confirm that stark whiteness. I'm okay with that. It gives me a chance to really count down my days! This is kind of more exciting..but ask me my feelings when we hit cycle day 31 cycle 12, no BFP! I'm sure I'll be singing a different tune! I'm trying to keep my head up and stay positive about this whole thing and NOT except to get it on the first go at it. I wear my stresses on my sleeve so my body probably isn't quite the best incubator. My parents took two years before they got pregnant with me- they had no fertility issues, it just took that long to 'get it right'. So who knows- but regardless this is a journey we're excited to take and I couldn't be more happy it's actually here! :) Now let's just hope I'm actually ovulating!! That's a whole 'nother can of worms, but I promised DH I'd just let it happen for 6 months. So no OPK's for at least 6 months with no BFP!
Just for a little fun, here's mine and DH's 'plan':
- 6 months, just letting it happen! if no BFP...
- 6 months, NFP & OPK's/Charting.. if no BFP...
- re-evaluate. Do we keep trying NFP/letting it happen or do we look into fertility things.
Dh and I have agreed to no major invasive fertility treatments, so adoption would be our second option if one of us is deemed infertile in anyway. It's perhaps not everyone's choice, but it's ours. And as much as adoption thrills me, I'd have ONE stipulation- that we'd be able to do our best to looking into a newborns adoption and THEN doing infant/toddler. But I suppose that's quite a while away, a year at the earliest before we even worry about doing our research, so for now...eggy's it's on!! :)
