@ieatunicorns: Woohoo! I’m glad the line was darker this morning!! I’m still so happy for you this morning and grateful that you brought BFP to us in Part 7! 🙂
I still can’t believe how little I knew regarding TTC when we first started. I was like ecomaha —> “how we thought just one time unprotected and ‘BAM!’ we’d be pregnant.”
In my mind, I had already figured out for my maternity leave to start 9-10 months after the wedding and how much money we would have saved up then (because I’m planning on being a Stay-At-Home Mom afterwards). Haha. We’re not even pg yet!
Really?? The same fertility meds they give cattle? Wow! I’m sure I can get my hands on some of those. My Father-In-Law has cattle, but it might be a bit awkward explaining why I want them! LOL One thing that is comforting is that both your Mom and Grandma took some time to conceive, but they both went on to have more than one child. That should mean good things for you!
My Mom had no troubles whatsoever in conceiving the six of us and I think my older sister is like my Mom. She’s due with her fourth in a couple weeks. I’m thinking I might be more like Mom’s sister. It took her and her husband 4 or so years for their first baby without any meds or intervention. After that though, they went on to have six more (so a total of seven!) so once things started working, they worked really well!
And yes, so happy for a Friday! I only work until noon today so it’s going to be a short morning. Yay!
You are always so sweet to keep popping in! We hadn’t been trying too long when you got pg, but I knew your story and I remember crying at my desk when you posted about your BFP. 🙂 So happy for you.
Like Jag’s, ours is an outside dog. We’ve been talking about a puppy for a long time now, but I really didn’t want to get one until I was on mat leave/at home full time but since it’s taken longer than we thought, we decided to go ahead with it anyways. Summer is a good time because I work slightly shorter hours in the summertime, so I won’t be gone quite as long everyday. Also DH will be at home more with farming during the summer months. DH’s parents and brother live close by as well, so I know they will pop over occasionally to check up the puppy. Our little girl will have our big older dog (who’s about 14) to spend the day with outside. Then I can give her love and attention before I go to work in the morning. We wanted to get a puppy while our older dog is still around, because she is the perfect dog, so we’re hoping the puppy will model some of her behaviours!
We are twins! DH hasn’t been back since he was six, so he will have a lot of relatives to visit while we are over there! Different aunts and uncles and his Oma have come to visit in Canada quite a few times, and we just found out yesterday that another aunt and uncle are flying here for a couple weeks this summer!
I remember you posting about your furbaby! She is ridiculously cute! 🙂 She’s grown a lot too.
Thank you! I hope I don’t squeeze her to death when we pick her up. I am over the moon excited!!
