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.
