I'm still feeling all smarmy and group-huggy today and just had to sharethis

The problem with ds1 I am referring to was that I was anticipating a full blown custody battle. dd was still living with me, but we literally never saw each other because of work and school schedules.

Wow. I mean wow. Just wow. Miracles really do happen. I'm NAKing mine.

My one year mark is my DH's 30th birthday. I had the IUI on his 29th birthday.
AND YAY! One year. It's so surreal!

The insem that worked was supposed to be on Mother's Day, but then I had a wonky cycle and had to call to reschedule. The donor was only available on weekends, so I was pretty sure it wasn't going to happen in May, but was exactly a week late.

I kind of lied in that post. I had given up, I just didn't want to admit it to myself. I wanted to try one last time so I could experience again and remember what it felt like to be the kind of person who could still hope.

I think I missed out on hearing about Trixie's successful IUI because I disappeared from The One Thread and all the TTC boards except the over 40s by April. I was consciously saving my 1000th post for either a pregnancy announcement or....well, there wasn't going to BE a 1000th post because a childless middle aged woman who hangs around parenting boards, even MDC, seemed just too pathetic to be something I wanted to be.

What a long, strange trip it's been.

I didn't spend much time on the One Thread, mostly just poking in here and there. I spent most of my time on the infertility thread.
She was my 2nd IUI, and 1st round of the injectable drugs. I hope it's that easy the 2nd time around. I don't know how well I cna handle another year of dejection.

A year ago today... I was happier than I'd been in a long time. Huh. I don't really care tothink about it, either; It didn't exactly turn out well.

She had an ectopic after the one who would have been our kids age and then a chemical.

I've seen her on the over 40s thread in the lastb month or so. I don;'t lurk there as much as I used to because it makes me sad and life isn't fair.

A year ago today... I was just finding out I was pg.
Of course I lost that pregnancy in May...
Turned up pg. again only two weeks later!!!
My water broke with Ember right around the time the other baby was due.

Seems my body had January on the calendar for a birth, no matter WHEN I conceived.

I agree it's not fair at all...
