Did yesterday really happen?

What a whirlwind. I couldn't work (not like it is hard to distract me from this place these days), I couldn't form sentences, I couldn't sleep last night, and I feel crazy.

S and I went out for dinner last night. During dinner we were talking about how we both always felt like we would get pregnant but never thought we would see a positive pregnancy test. That doesn't really make sense but we were both feeling/thinking it for the last few months. I think that is why I had to buy three more boxes of tests (all different brands) and test 6 times before I could believe it.

We have let a few people know outside of blogworld but are waiting to tell everyone that doesn't read it here until we are closer to the second trimester. Some family is visiting us in the coming month though so they are being saved for in person notifications!

Now we just need to make sure this little one has staying power...hang in there little one!

Dear Blogland

We would like to extend our apologies for excluding you. We hope you can forgive us, but we have been in a TWW this month and we've never said a thing. I think we just really wanted a quiet month. In fact, we weren't even planning on trying until the very last minute. We did an at-home insem; two vials in one shot b/c it arrived after I felt ovulation sensation.

So to the point of this post, here is how our morning went:

6:00 AM alarm for temp taking (yes, we still do it)
6:03 AM decided to test, after getting another day of high temps
6:06 AM go back to bed and decide to look later
6:07 AM "Um, Sara, I think there is a line" after checking with cell phone light and bedside lamp
6:10 AM Erin went to store and bought three more boxes of HPTs

Guess what they all said: PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have been trying since June of 2005 and have NEVER received a positive. This was an at home insem w/ no drugs.

We're just trying to let it all sink in.

The sky is falling.....

nope just the ceiling of our garage. Our garage is kinda different, it is under a portion of the house and our three season porch. Well, after about 12 days of heavy rains a small leak has caused the garage ceiling to sag, then drip, and then break aprart and fall. I spent a good few hours on Sat. pulling the drywall down and removing the moldy insulation. Now we need to find the leak, seal it and drywall the cieling. But, it is raining again so we may be able to see the leak now that we don't have a ceiling.

Geek much...guess not

Max's Mommy posted her score for this quiz and I was curious about where I would fall. I felt like I was taking a quiz in another language...looks like I need to up my geek dose.

Still here, just quiet

We've not been posting much this week - settling back into our routine and.. our home computer is down. This makes it difficult to jump on for posting, and definitely makes posting pictures impossible. We're taking the thing in to be fixed this weekend. Not sure how long it will take, but we probably won't be posting much of anything in the meantime... we'll be checking on all of you though!!

We're back

We arrived home last night around 9pm, after over 12 hours of packing up and traveling. We had a very nice time at MWMF this year. Our dearest friends had their ceremony, and it was fantastically beautiful! We will be posting pics - to be sure. We discovered a few new bands and reconnected with some old friends all while enjoying the company of our very favorite peeps, who now also happen to be hitched!

It feels good to be home. We are not taking any more trips until Thanksgiving, and I find that a great relief. Don't get me wrong - we still have lots of plans! Just no more trips/vacations other than those for work. I think we're both looking forward to settling in to a laid back fall and anticipating visits from family members and enjoying a routine more conducive to focusing on our babymaking.

We have decided to go natural with our next go around. No drugs, and we're not yet sure that we'll utilize our NP's services. We think we may try next cycle, but are not yet sure. We seem to be growing a bit more uncertain. Hopefully with the craziness settling down, we will be able to see and feel a bit more clearly while regaining some hopeful energy.

We're glad to be back, and look forward to catching up with all of you in the next couple of days!

We're going home

"Home", of course - to those that have been there before - refers to MichiganWomyn's Music Festival. This will be my 4th or 5th time, and this will be Erin's 6th or 7th! (I can't remember.)

We are going to celebrate next week Saturday with our friends C & C, who will be having their ceremony while we are there. Congratulations, ladies!

We are leaving tonight to spend the weekend with family before hitting the woods for nearly 7 days. Have a great week, and we will write and comment when we return! If you're going to be there too, look for the rainbow pinwheel - that's our campsite!
