Wanna hear a story?


I'm pregnant. 12 weeks today.

Wanna know when we found found? At almost 8 weeks.

Wanna know how silly I am? Course you do!

Well, I mentioned previously about how my Flash Animation class was REALLY difficult. It was so difficult that when I started feeling nauseous all the time I thought it was because of the stress of the class. When I started napping during the day I thought it was because I really wanted to avoid the class - the crazy, vivid dreams were worth all the naps. Stuart would come home from school and I'd start crying because I'd missed him so much and because my class was really upsetting me.

One day I had been feeling so sick and all I wanted was won ton soup. Nothing else. That was the day of the fortune cookie.


My class ended and the last before graduation began. For the next 2 weeks I kept losing my appetite but the need to snack all day long got stronger. I'd have to eat as soon as I woke up when usually I could wait until at least 9am.

All of these things added up in Stuart's mind and he pointed me towards the preggo tests at Safeway. It hadn't even crossed my mind. The missed period didn't even clue me in...

I got home, took the test just to rule it out. Within the last year I'd come to terms with being a family of 2 and can honestly say I loved the idea. Life just the 2 of us is good, comfortable and convenient.


Being a family of 3 is going to be great too :))

Miracles happen. Don't forget.

We've been married for 7 years - plenty of time to have a couple of "oopsies" never mind a few planned pregnancies. It took a long time to come but it finally did.

At the exact right time.

I have this good friend who tried with her husband so VERY hard for 8 years to get pregnant. The adoption process was started and everything. Then out of the blue, there was her first daughter... then boom, number two came right away, and number 3 immediately after!

Moral of the story is that the fact that you conceived naturally is HUGE in the fertility world, because it means you CAN get pregnant. And most likely WILL again. Promise.

(Plus, that's what my fertility specialist kept telling me, and he was right. No drugs or any help needed with number two after all.)
