Drumroll, please… November 29, 2011

I’ve wondered for 4 months what I’d write when this day came.  I wondered how we’d feel, whom we’d call first, and how long it would take for reality to sink in.  I still don’t know the answer to that last question.

I’m at a rare loss for words.  I have absolutely no idea what to say, other than to thank all of you for reading, commenting, and thinking fertile thoughts for us over these 4 cycles.  And keep all that going…there are plenty of hurdles still to jump.

Obviously MKL and I are over the moon.  When we come down, I’m sure I’ll find something more eloquent to say.  But for now all I can come up with is:  HOLY CRAP.  WE’RE HAVING A BABY!!!!!

    Get ready for the best roller coaster ride of your life. I’m so glad it was lucky no. 4 for you.

    I hope you have a happy, healthy and enjoyable 9 months ahead.

    Please don’t forget your blog now that you are knocked up ;p You have a loyal follower on the other side of the world who can’t wait for updates on your pregnancy and mommyhood.

    My twin boys are 2 weeks old now. Its the best thing that has ever happened to me.

      Thank you so much for all the well-wishes. I’ll do my very best to keep up with the blog throughout my pregnancy…when I’m awake! LOL!

        The mind-numbing, zombie-like exhaustion gets better, I promise. I think I pretty much slept 12 – 16 hours a day in my first trimester.

        Good luck for your scan.

    It was definitely meant to be ! On Brody’s 1 year birthday , you get the news you’ve been waiting for 🙂 yeah all around!!!!!
    One hurdle at a time 😉


    • areyoumymoms Says:

      Awww… Happy belated birthday, sweet Brody! What a cool coincidence. Fingers crossed that my blood work looks good this week and the confirmation ultrasound goes well. If so, I think it’s time to make that trip across the highway and learn from an expert! Thanks for your support. It really means a lot to us.


  7. Laura Says:

    Yay! So pleased for you.

    And guess what?

    ME TOO!! xxx


    • areyoumymoms Says:

      OMG!!! That’s so fantastic! Congratulations!! Are you nauseous yet? 😉


      • Laura Says:

        Well, I’ve had a pretty raging case of OHSS – been in hospital with it – so its hard to tell whether the nausea is from that or just run of the mill morning sickness. Have a scan on Wednesday – cant wait. How are you feeling?

    WOW YAY!! So IUI CAN work….! It doesn’t feel like it over here, but you have just given me some big fat HOPE 🙂
