I nearly just typed "Last week was Baby Grok's birthday." But it's actually been three weeks. How time flies. I had every intention of commemorating the event here, but I didn't get around to it.
I'm not sure who still checks here, but if you do, there's news today.
I'm pregnant again.
Last week I took five negative pregnancy tests. I was pretty bummed out and getting fairly obsessive again about cycles and luck. Today I took two positive tests. Don't know why that is, but it is.
applies this time around too, and I still have a coin toss chance of another miscarriage. But I remain happy that we made it past the getting-pregnant step and now just have to focus on the staying-pregnant step.
And I find this quite humorous: I nursed Baby Grok for the full year and had been slowly weaning her. We had just taken the step of cutting out her nighttime nursing, and I was happy that I'd now be able to have a guilt-free glass of wine with dinner.
I had two nights of wine.
Fingers crossed and prayers offered that I don't get any more wine for another two years...
I hope so much for you to stay pregnant! Your little one will enjoy being a big sis. My grandson was 3-1/2 when his baby sis was born a year ago. The love they have for each other is wonderful to see. Need I say that parents and grandparents love them both to pieces. Good luck, and congratulations for having gotten past the first hurdle.

Huzzah! Very excited for you. I feel vaguely guilty sometimes because I know more about your kid (and Buttercup Fleming at IMAO) than actual children in my actual family.
(We found it easier to catch the second time, too, for what that's worth, though we didn't go through a fraction of what you did the first time around.)

So.....since I have sacrificed FB and Twitter for the Lenten season, I've slightly out of touch with what's going on in the small little world we rotate on...very glad I decided to check Reader again. Such wonderful news. I will gladly send up a prayer, or a few, for you. It's been heart warming following your parenting journey. Congrats to all of you on this first step...

Here's hoping your body figured out what it's supposed to do to complete a baby and this one sticks!
You guys make wonderful parents!

Wow! Grats! I know your struggle with Baby Grok and the pain of the miscarriages and that struggle between Hope and Eager Excitement and wanting to protect yourself incase It happens again. I will be praying that you have a second very happy, healthy, wiggly baby to keep your baby girl and you and your hubby busy with!

Delurking...I didn't de-lurk for all the previouspost that led up to the wonderful current little grok, but hoping this one follows that ones footsteps.
Darn I wish websites had 'Like' instead of comments!
