Baby Boom

Some of my favorite bloggers have recently announced that they are pregnant.
 I don't know why but when I tell you I get so thoroughly excited to hear such news!
Well I can guess reasons why..
1. because after reading their blogs, I feel like I know a little bit about them and wish that I lived closer to them so I could know them in real life because they seem like awesome people
2. because I can't wait to be able to make that announcement myself I guess- yes, yes, I'll admit. But I think just excited because its something that my husband and I both want. We LOVE children!

But don't get it twisted...Despite the random cases of baby fever here and there due to my planning-type personality and wanting to know WHEN...  I am about as calm and "go with the flow" as I possibly can be. Excited for this whole journey nonetheless... and its been very eye opening.
I am pretty sure that I am not the ONLY newlywed who has given thought as to when the right time to have a child is...and although some plan and some have not, I think our story is unique enough that it may just help someone else.

See... for us.. we are not infertile.
We have seen a specialist and have taken various blood tests, had dye SHOVED through my tubes, ultrasounds of my eggs... everything!
We have received a clean bill of health on every front...
and yet, still face the possibility of having to get an IUI according to our specialist.

It makes you think twice about all the stories that you hear growing up about how pregnancy just happens.
Even for a healthy couple that chance of happening is 20% per month.
With ALL the things that life throws at you and more specifically us: We both started new stressful jobs, purchased a new construction home, husband lost his father, I lost a co-worker... emotional things happen that can really throw you off your game.

So yes, there may come a time where it seems like when you are not "trying" it wil happen... and other times where when you want it to happen, it seems like its taking way too long.

Congrats on Baby Luca!


So you see... its not really my fault.. I try not to think about it, but there are some great bloggers who just keep bringing it up.. and I have a sense that their may be a few more out there soon with the same announcement.

At least I will live vicariously through them for a bit.

Congrats Ladies!
