Oh, I just got so test crazy when trying for dd that I am trying to avoid it this time [;)] Perhaps the suspense with this long wait is just as bad anyway! I just hate the big let downs when they don't come up positive and I've had one other long cycle since having dd and want to make sure that isn't happening again. I guess I should test. Maybe in the morning? lol This has become a very stressful week...I'm thinking/hoping a + will be joyous like last time but would hate to add more stress at the moment! lol Leave it to a man to agree to go to a charity ball & auction and not pay attention that it was anything other than a dance!!! Argh Lol, found that out Wednesday and other than this very moment, I've been spending all my time making a dress since there are none appropriate in town! Whew. Plus, people are coming over for dinner tonight, I have to give a lesson on Sunday, we are helping people move saturday, dh signed us up to clean the church this week, and then the ball Saturday night! Dang, I swear when it rains it poors! lol Sorry to complain and rant! I broke down about it last night...wondering if those were hormones talking? Ugh, I should test, I know! lol

So, with all this new baby talk, I'm TOTALLY excited...and wishful [:D]. I had to add my own update, though it isn't the one I WANT to add! lol

It is our first cycle and I'm on day 36 with no signs of anything yet! I did test at day 28 and got a neg. The problem is that I have NO IDEA how long my cycles are! Since having dd they've been all out-of-whack. If I make it to day 45 without af I'm going to test then....I think it is the 12th. I hate waiting and not knowing! ARGH [:I] Showing my impatience here...lol

Catherine,

Soooooo excited for you! [:)] I can imagine the uneasiness though, we don't get the luxury of that "blissfully unaware" type of pregnancy that many are fortunate to have. But, in my opinion, we know more than anyone just how precious and miraculous a healthy baby really is.

Wishing you guys the best of luck in conceiving quickly! And of course, lots of prayers for a looooong and uneventful pregnancy!
