The Last Hoorah...

I'd like to give hope a chance.

I'd like to REALLY hope that this is the last big vacation I will take: a) without my kid(s) in tow OR b) worry about the said kid(s) we are leaving behind with grandma and grandpa. =)

I'd like to come back with a cool new haircut (getting it chopped tomorrow!!), a killer tan (but no sunburn) and a renewed sense of peace about what we are getting ourselves into the day we get back from vacation. I got the dreaded call today about when we are planning on paying for this sucker...

I'd really like to believe what my cousin just wrote to me in an email (the one who just announced her pregnancy) that "just relax and it will happen." Yup she said the words that make me cringe. But I can't be upset--they just got "lucky" the cycle after a failed IUI....and I am truly happy for her.

And lastly, and most important--I will be thinking of you all and wishing for lots of BFP announcements when I return--I know some will be getting results when I am away!

All I ask of you while we are away on hopefully the last (childless) hoorah, is thoughts and prayers that Mook and I come back prepared mentally and physically for whatever this next step will bring...the countdown is on my friends, and while we cant wait for it to get here, we also are nervous that it's right around the corner....

AdiĆ³s!

  6. I think it's great that you get to take a vacation before your first IVF cycle. You should be good and "relaxed" when you get back...

There is nothing like a good pair of jeans; they shape us, support us and make us look our best. I'd love for you to share your jeans with me!
