Teetina - Sorry this month was a downer for you too. Have a great birthday!

Taxlady - yay on the interview! Best of luck.

I just found out today that a former housemate (up until I came to China) and someone I considered a good friend is pregnant and due around Christmas. We haven't really kept in close touch this year, but we've exchanged a handful of emails just saying hello and asking about housing stuff. I found out from a belly pic on FB...a little hurt that she didn't tell me. She's also using the midwife I've communicated with a little, though I can't say anything bad on that account. The office is a block from the house! I just have to keep reminding myself that it's not a competition and my time will come soon. I just feel left behind sometimes and that everything I do is a copy of someone else.

One consolation, I guess, is that when I eventually get pregnant I'll be the first person I know IRL to plan a homebirth for the first baby. It might be our only one, so I'm going to do it how I want!

Mom to Thora, born at home 9/28/2011. Currently in Madison, WI, but gearing up for a move to Providence, RI in August! I'd love to meet some folks.

I just remembered a really strange dream that I've had twice in the past couple of weeks - I was walking somewhere and saw someone carrying a glass bottle in their hand - it looked like a medicine bottle or maybe some kind of imported asian juice bottle. When I snoopily looked closer, it was printed on the label in little letters, "bajingo juice".

On a farm with our kiddo (nearly 2), two dogs, two cats, ten goats, two donkeys, nine sheep, a bunch of chickens, and a husband (in the winters). We have another on the way!

Hykue.. speaking of which I had a dream (I already posted it) but I called my husband "DH" in it!

Everyone must go read Musicoholic's post "You know your TTC when..."

SOOOO FUNNY!

Married to DH since 7/08 - TTC since 8/09

So for my final post as the 30 Somethings TTC #1 threadkeeper for October I leave you with this.. (drama queen)

The lyrics to one of my favorite songs - Frank Sinatra's "My Way"

And now the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend I'll say it clear
I'll state my case of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets I've had a few
But then again too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course (and took my temps every morn )
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes there were times I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out , I faced it all
And I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved , I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that
And may I say not in a shy way
Oh no, oh no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man what has he got
If not himself then he has not
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Still new to the group and getting to know everyone through their comments! I'm so excited to report that my wife and I have inseminated twice (our first two!). We have a known donor - for those that didn't catch that in my first post. Poor guy is having some stage fright issues (he warned us that this might happen). Still not sure about all the acronyms used on this site (is there a guide for newbies? LOL!), so excuse me if I'm too graphic! He was only able to produce some pre-ejaculate yesterday, but we went ahead and inseminated anyway knowing that there were still lots of swimmers in there! He felt so badly about it that he wanted to try again today...and....SUCCESS!

We're going to give him a day off tomorrow to recover and have one more go at it on Tuesday (I should O on Wednesday). I realize how fortunate we are to have access to fresh and local swimmers. Feeling so full of gratitude for this amazing man who is doing all he can to give us the most precious gift!

Techie question for you all...how do you create at signature tag down at the bottom of your posts? (I'm not the most technologically advanced future mama there is!)

I hope all is well with you all! Let's have a great month!

I (35) am happily married to my gorgeous wife (28) love.gif  who is pregnant with our first little bundle of love.                                                             Coming attraction: homebirth.jpg waterbirth.jpg   in March, 2012!  joy.gif

As far as making your signature - Click on 'UserCP' on the toolbar beneath the big 'mothering' banner at around the top of the page. Then you will see a 'Control Panel' menu to the left with 'Edit Signature' in it. Click on that and make one... :-)

My twins are here!  Thank God everyday for answered  praying.gif
