2 Mommies and a Baby
Friday, December 23, 2005
I am in love with those Happy Feet slippers that I saw in the mall. We just had to buy a pair for a certain someone who shall remain nameless until after Christmas.
I am still considering a pair for myself, but the cutest thing ever was the ones for babies.
I can't wait to have an excuse to buy little baby happy feet.
The PennState ones are perfect (homage to JoPa) and the UConn ones would be perfect homage to Gino. (they are coaches for the NCAA challanged out there). Just an idea for those who are looking for gift ideas when we ever do get pregnant!

I happened to spend some time in the baby aisles wondering when I could start freaking out about getting baby stuff.
There’s so many cute things out there and I am telling myself that I am not going to get anything until she is 3 months pregnant.
While I try to refrain from going down any more baby aisles, we have already planned on our next insemination visit.
Maybe the good doc will be there next time and we’ll have better luck!

Lois called me close to 15 times yesterday telling me that she thought what was going on was implantation bleeding. I pretty much confirmed for her that it was, in fact, her period.
We are disappointed, but I guess our expectations were pretty high considering it happened on the first try last time.
I know people try forever sometimes to get pregnant but we thought the odds were pretty good of another quick pregnancy (the doc confirmed that Lois had good healthy eggs ready to go, we know the donor has good swimmers, and we are injecting sperm directly into her uterus during ovulation, you can’t get much better conditions then that).
We are looking forward to trying again in 16 days.
Lois thinks its because the doc we liked wasn’t around and it was the one that we had issues with last time around.
Lois is convinced that this doc injected the sperm into her bladder.

We took a First Response test yesterday morning. It was a BFN (Big F’ing Negative).
I think Lois is disheartened but she won’t admit it. I keep reminding her that we had negatives last time early on and that the first positive was days after her missed period. She tries to convince herself one minute that her boobs feel sore or that she is feeling heartburn and that that she must be pregnant and in the next breath she convinces herself that it didn’t work.
I figure we will either test again on Tuesday, or wait until Wed. or Thurs. and see if she is “late” before we try retesting.
I am thinking she is. But that’s just me.

the waiting game
but how anxious do we want to let ourselves be.
if it didn't work this time, we have many more chances to keep trying.
if it did work this time, we don't want to be too excited, and shouldn't get too caught up until we are well into the second trimester since the last miscarriage happened in week 12.
there is no way to keep your excitement down no matter what you tell yourself. i guess we'll just take it one step at a time.
if lois is pregnant, that's her xmas present.
