Sunday, November 21

seven years since the move was made, happy iclw!


I woke up today feeling good.  It took a minute to figure out why that was and then I remembered...it was seven years ago today when my Husband took a gamble and made a move.  Well it really was no gamble at all since I think it was plainly obvious that I was already in love with him.  Either way, November 21st marked the day where our friendship ended and something much better began.

Fast forward seven years and here we are... doing our first round of in vitro... two days into the stimulants phase... nervous, hopeful, excited and mostly just plain scared.  These are exciting times.  Times with so many possibilities.

Seven years ago did I think we would ever be in this position...absolutely not... but if someone would have told me then that we would be doing in vitro now I would have been thrilled...not at the prospect of required ART (assisted reproductive technology) to have a baby, but that we were it...done...together.

So I am smiling.  Today is a good day.  I am going with it. 

To start I am headed to the gym to walk...yes walk on the treadmill... it is better than nothing and might just give me my gym fix that I crave.  The afternoon will be spent patching up the walls in our master en suite as I will be painting them Farrow and Ball pavillion grey sometime very soon, and the evening will be spent watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Happy ICLW!

This is us... two years ago at our wedding!

  10. Here from ICLW and was drawn to your calmly chaotic description. I completely understand! Things get chaotic with IF, especially IVF, but you just have to stay calm....or go insane :) Good luck!

  19. it took the boy a damn long time, but Andy finally got his shizz together and grabbed hold of one fabulous lady. I love that you still keep track of this day. You're so right...little Ashley wouldnt have blinked an eye at IVF if it meant her and Andrew were together.
