Thanks for all of your kind words and wishes. I am one happy girl today! And congrats to GISDiva too!!
You can think of all the fun or romantic ways that you might like to tell your DH that a 2nd line finally showed up...but what really happens.... We met family members for lunch yesterday, so I decided not to test in the morning. After lunch and errands, we came home & I started on some hand washing. That's when the test called to me...it said "test now".
I was washing a top in the sink...stopped to test...put the test on the back of the toilet and proceeded to break the sink stopper. I started to walk out of the bathroom to ask DH to fix it when I noticed a distinct line popping up after only a minute. I grabbed the test and the sink parts, and asked DH if he could fix the sink... "Sure"....then I handed him the parts with the test....
Then we cried and sang and giggled and danced all day. We realized this morning how hard it will be not to share the news! I can't tell you how glad I am to have this forum!
This month marks one year of TTC for us. However, we m/c in 11/06, and took 4 months off (3 mo. due to m/c & 1 due to feeling overwhelmed)....= 8 months total.
This is what we did in July/Aug:
Fertell Test - told us that DH did not have the low SC we had suspected (so we could BD every day if we wanted to afterall)
Acupuncture - Worked on liver & kidney imbalances (strange side effect was not wanting to BD after O!)
Charting - Our timing was often off before July!
PreSeed - tossed it as far as I could. Hate it!
De-stressed - Made a major job shift. No more supervision! DH and I are both doing more of what we love.
Yoga for Fertility - got tired of the DVD, but incorporated some of the poses into my practice
Meditation - at least a few minutes every day
I wore a fertility bracelet that I made out of carnelian stone. It was more of reminder of our intention, and I often forgot it in the washing machine...
I'd like to say that acupuncture "did the trick", but in my heart I believe it was all significant. On a spiritual level it really felt like everything just came together this month...like maybe a little spirit looked out and said, "Ok...it's time."
Whew...I don't want to fill up the whole page!
Peace & may your DHs & partners soon look like mine -
