I have been bursting with excitement and hope for the past week, and I’m ecstatic to say that I can finally say HFS again!!!
Yesterday was the 1 year anniversary of us being homeowners. I can’t believe how quickly the year has flown by! We still don’t own a dining room table (among many other items *grin*), but dangit, at least we’re having a baby. 🙂
|Please excuse my weird hair and the massive candle wax stain on my husband’s work shirt. LOL|
To commemorate the occasion, I invited our two favorite sets of “couple friends” over for dinner last night. You know the kind – where BOTH of you like BOTH of them. Invaluable friends to have…and quite hard to come by (at least for us – what does that say about us?!). LOL.
At any rate, M&O are long time friends who just got married in September on a beautiful ranch just outside of town here. M&R got married just 13 days after us back in 2008 (though we didn’t know them back then). They’re the ones who just finished a 21 day river float through the Grand Canyon. Sick, right?!

SO, now for the HFS #2. 🙂
Even though M&O have only been married for 7 months, they’ve actually been TTC for 9 or so. She has endo (which she had pretty extensive surgery for a couple of years ago) and slightly irregular cycles, and her doc pretty much straight up told her that if she wanted a chance to conceive without ART, they needed to try asap…so they did!
Last Tuesday (12dpIUI for me – BFP day!), M & I hung out all day doing errands in the next town over. On the drive home, she straight up asked me if I had tested yet, and I lied and said no b/c I figured Charlie should know first. WELL, in the same convo, she brought up that she finally had an appointment set for the end of April to see a doc about getting Clomid and/or LP support b/c she has a really short LP. I asked her where she was in her cycle, and she said 6dpo. Immediately in my head I was thinking about how amazing it would be to go through this together.
Can you see where this is going? 🙂
When she was here yesterday, I gave her my remaining CBE Digital test… and this morning, she sent me a picture of that stick with the message:
Holy hell!!!! I am still in shock! Took it about an hour ago but wanted to wait til [O] left to tell anyone!! Call me if you are awake!
Well, of course I called her immediately. LOL.
Can you believe it?!!
huge part of my IF heart is petrified something will go wrong for one of us and the other will serve as a living reminder of where we should be… BUT, I’m trying to allow myself to just be out of my mind freakin’ excited that one of my very best friends will be going through this with me – just 6d behind me!!
After all the shitty, crappy moments we’ve had over these past couple of years, this past week or so has been pretty amazing.
Charlie getting a job in-state (no more traveling to ND for 1/2 the month!).
I switched my insurance on the perfect day on accident (more on this later).
One of my closest friends got her BFP.
I haven’t smiled this much in years. 🙂
1w5d until my 1st u/s!!
*this is one of the few times I’m excited to be treated “special” b/c of IF – M has to wait until 5/31 (9w6d) for her 1st u/s. that would make me bonkers to have to wait so long!*
