Well, today was the day.

It's almost anti-climactic. It's done and over. I did the injections, I've had the IUI. I don't feel different, other than slight cramps. Should I?

I am trying to stay calm for the next two weeks. I am going to have to keep myself busy with stuff. We should be painting out house and getting new flooring in the next while, so that is something to distract myself with and keep busy with. After that is done I can start hanging things on the wall and making this house feel more like a home. I can't wait to feel more settled!

I now have this strong desire to buy baby stuff. I found a car seat and stroller combo today, and ALMOST bought it. If it wasn't for my level headed husband, I probably would have. It was the perfect color, and its was on sale. But the stroller was kinda cheap, and we have done no research on what would be the best. I wast just colour blind I guess.

Our other debate now, is who to tell and when. Ideally we would just tell close family until 12 weeks. But nothing about our situation has been ideal so far. And because I have been so open on this blog, everyone will know something is up if I don't post about it. So for now, if I don't say anything on here, I hope you will understand. And PLEASE don't say anything on Facebook if you have questions.

Waiting is the hardest part, no matter if you've struggled to get that far or not! The house stuff should at least help with keeping distracted :)

And yeah, don't buy a carseat before you are almost due! They expire, and you want to have it available for as long as possible.

I can't believe that you may FINALLY be thisclose to your dream!!!

Woohoo!!! SOO exciting!!! I am praying hard for you, sweet friend!

Hope you continue to feel good (minor cramping is usually a great sign!) and that the 2ww passes very quickly for ya.

As for telling your family, I dunno, that's such a personal decision - really varies on the couple and also the kind of relationship you have. I remember with our families we told them everything (had been trying a long time without success and hadn't let them in on it at all) and at first it was scary but then we felt relieved because we had their support/prayer support. HOWEVER, I can see how keeping it a secret would be a good idea, be able to genuinely surprise everyone with the pregnancy, or be able to grieve privately if needed. Best wishes with your decision - will be praying for you in this regard as well!

Good for you for saying what you want! I am praying for you and that God will present you with a miracle in his perfect timing!! Looking forward to seeing some new house pictures as well-hint hint!

Stacey beat me to saying don't buy a carseat yet for that very reason.

I'm praying for you during this waiting time and I'm hoping for great news.
Glad you have house stuff as that will be distracting!

Melissa said...

it's tough figuring out when and who to tell. I hope it goes well. :)

Yeah, I do know that carseats expire. I was just hormonal and emotional which can cause me to make rash decisions without thinking them through.

As for telling people, we will probably tell everybody right away. It would just make things easier, and we are terrible at keeping secrets.

And thank you all for your prayers and support! :)
