It's Been a Year

Before I begin, Brooklyn has found her "voice." She is behind me screaming for just pure fun, joy, and basically to hear herself. She's kinda like her momma. :)

If you go back through my blog you'll realize that it's exactly one year ago that I started my IVF cycle. At that time I thought the end of the world was near. A lot of "why me's" took place. Why can't I have a baby the "normal" way? Why do I have to do these injections? Why is it a possibility that this whole thing can blow-up in our faces? If you are a regular follower, you remember my blog about smuggling. Mr. Later Than Most and I never told anyone about our struggles, but we had a family get together planned for the 4th of July. I wanted to tell Mr. Later Than Mosts mom so she could help us out a little, but he disagreed. So, we planned to get all of our IVF crap together and smuggle it to the family gathering.

What I remember most is how Mr. Later Than Most and I were both like deer in headlights when we were packing. Of course we went to our injection class and I (once again) had done way too much studying and the drugs and what we should do. In fact, Mr. Later Than Most took extensive notes at our class and I was glad because the nurse truly talked a mile a minute. So, there we were with a crapload of needles, pills, and liquids and no clue what we were supposed to take with us. If you are bored, I advise you to go back and read some of those blogs. They are kinda funny.

So, Mr. LTM and I were at the same gathering this weekend. As we were driving somewhere I said, "It was one year ago that we started doing those injections." He says, "No way." The year went by fast. I can't believe it!

Brooklyn will be three months old on Friday. She is such a doll. She's a good, good little baby. Kinda spoiled already but I'm trying not to do that! As I've said before, I'm finally all adjusted now. We are really enjoying our time together before I have to go back to work.

On my last post I said that most of my internet girls are finally pregnant but I have two girls IRL that were struggling. Well, I got great news that friend #2 had a successful IVF and she is about 13 weeks along! Friend #1 is starting an injectable IUI cycle this week. They've been trying for over 2 years, so hopefully good news soon!

I can't believe how quickly time went by! It's amazing how life changes in an instant- when we least expect it. Good luck to your friend cycling!
