We told my parents this weekend

We drove to Athens to see my family and to share our news. My mom and dad knew we were going to start trying for a baby... but I do not think they were ready this quickly for us to say...

We Pregnant!!!!

My dad was shocked and all he could say was "my baby is having a baby". My mom told me to be prepared to be sick. She and my sister were horrible.
***knock on wood I have had nothing to this date
My sister was like prove it! Kevin just sat there. Sam and Haley were the tellers of the news and were very happy!

WHAT A WEEKEND!!! We are so blessed and I am nervous!

Last cycle with all my stupid wackiness...I asked Mich to bring home a few $1 pregnancy test from the pharmacy. I know...$1...are they going to work... He was just as doubtful...he had Kelley his store manager take one...(she is 7 months pregnant).. it works.


Well my temps looked like they were going down then it took a turn up. Well Friday morning my temp went up again not down (like it was suppose too)!!! So Mich said lets just take a $1 just to see for fun. (yeah, that is not my idea of fun...dear) I told him there is no use...considering I spotted the other day. Okay... this is my awkward moment! Here Mich and I are trying to get ready for work on Friday morning...taking a pregnancy test.

So I took it and waited. After a few seconds of seeing the control line...and nothing else I thought whatever and tossed on the counter to throw away. "See... Hello you have to do the dirty deed a little closer or on ovulation to get pregnant." A little sad but not horrible. I hear Mich swearing he saw shadow. GEEZ...Mich if you let it sit there long enough I would think that would happen. So I told him fine lets take a "real" one .. the first reposnses that I bought earlier this month. (we were going to use these as a confirmed after the cheap things). Well again...Mich sticks it in the cup and waits. I see the stupid control and nothing else. So I hop in the shower. Yes in the back my mind I was a little sad (but after 2 negatives) but we decided not this month to try.
When I got out of the shower he went to throw it away and said "Lisa I think you need to relook at this!!!!" My stomach dropped!!!! and went white. OMG now what???

WoW!!! We are Pregnant!!!!!!! How the heck did that happen! We did not do anyting on or the day before!!!! HOW!!!!!! But I am so happy! Now off to get some blood work!

Oh the cramps have started...

Work has been so busy. I am cramping here at work today. Trying to remind myself what a real period feels like. HORRIBLE!!!

to top my cramping off.. I am having a HORRIBLE gas issue! Where the heck is the gas coming from. The only thing I can think I ate was veggie soup I made. Hopefully with all the cramps...and spotting a little this morning when I first got up means it is totally on it is way. Only strange part...I have not spotted since this morning just cramps!

.....Okay....time to head home.

Happy Anniversary! 2 years!

I can not believe where time has gone! Our big plans are to have a nice dinner at the house. Since Mich has the day off...I asked Mich to fix dinner and surprise me.

I got Mich a 100 minutes worth of massage....he will be so happy. He totally thinks I have something else....but he gave part of mine this morning. I got a new charm for my bracelet. I just love jewelry.

On the subject of my temps... Apparently I am a normal person so far. I am not feeling anything. My moods have finally leveled off and feeling normal. so my hart looks just like the thing should according to the instructions. My temps are up still and I am curious to see what they will do after this weekend. I am guessing I will see it drop in the next few days like it is suppose too. I am suppose to get my period on Friday or Saturday. It is a pretty chart to look at:

Work Work! and it is Friday us all. Oh it is exhausting today. Work has been super stressful this past week. We have huge deadlines to meet by the end of the year! I am just not sure I can do this!

Mich is working this weekend, yuck. I am going to paint my kitchen baseboards and the backside to the island in our kitchen and give the house a huge cleaning. That way it will look very nice for the Mary Kay party next Saturday. I am really excited about having everyone over.

I need to get something special for Mich. I am trying to decide on what...but I will manage to come up with something.

Fall...what a wonderfuil time

It is finally November and Fall has set in. I can not believe the cooler weather. Next week we get to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. WooHoo! I can not belive we have made it two years! Seems just like yesterday. I love Mich more and more each day. He brings me so much hope, love and support.


Life is going very well. I feel as though I have a huge block lifted off my shoulder now. Mich and I are have not regretted giving up this month and we have not fought about it since. Although, we did decide to keep temping this month and to play it by ear next month. I have never been happier with my life, job and in general.

Thoughts on TTC. I am not thinking about my family history!
The first month a little nerve racking...especially...with all the crazy things your body does whehn you come off Birth Control.
Month 2 okay...hello horrible hormones... but now I am at peace and calm. Finding the balance my life is going to be my best bet in the process. And lots of walking.

HOORAY.. Fertility Friend said I ovulated!!!!!

At least I know I can ovulate, which eases my mind!

So here is to the next cycle we will try again. (We stopped trying before I ovulated) Mich was incredibly sweet the when I took my temp and saw the change...

When I was laying bed he asked since you o'd do you think we should at least give it one try. I told him no we can just start fresh and have a good time playing next few months! (what am I saying!) I am giving up this month.

Now, I am so focused on the holidays coming up! I am not ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have a busy December with lots of birthdays and a few Christmas parties.

HOORAY I do Ovulate!

It is has been a rough couple of days. The planned everything is getting to be to much. It is stressing Mich out. Me I just curious about it all. Part of me wishes it would just happen the other part...says wait a minute do you really know what you are doing.
Mich was so sweet. After we have fought for the past two nights and I got mad and said we are done with this TTC with temps. Lets just take it as it comes. We are giving up and going to try "relax" next cycle. After a few months if nothing happens we will start temping.
