Planting the Seed

So, I have been debating with myself about whether to talk about this on the blog or not. On the one hand, this is my outlet for talking about things that I am excited about, that I am pissed about, that I am anxious about...you get the point. But, to make public my little secret, well that invites lots of commentary - and I'm not sure if I'm ready for commentary. So, as long as you all promise to keep my little secret plan a secret and not chatter too much about it, then I will share and keep you updated on..........Project Seed Pod.

**Warning: If you read ahead, be prepared for talk of girly parts.**

Technically Project Seed Pod has been going on for a few months, but my efforts are intensifying as we go into month 3. Why you say? Well, because I have finally figured out when I am ovulating. So, now I am going in with a game plan:

Step 1: Lots o' lovin over the next two weeks
Step 2: Take daily multi-vitamin
Step 3: Mention nothing to the parents, so that they do not go into over-drive

So, wish me luck! I have been so bummed the last few months when Aunt Flow came to visit. It's so funny, for most of your sex life you are so focused on NOT getting pregnant. Now that J and I have finally come to the decision to go for it, it's the only thing I can think of and of course the thing that isn't happening. It's not like I'm freaking out or anything, it's only been a few months. But I am so excited about being a mom, especially during the holidays. I seriously cannot watch most commercials right now without getting teary eyed. Everything right now is all about family, and it just makes me ache to start making memories with our own family!

I'm right there with you...the aching, the anxiousness...the dreaming of names and cuteness that will abound. You'll be a great mommy...(end commentary)

Wow...what an exciting time! Just remember-you are doing the work, but someone else is giving you that miracle- not to give you the God speech, but when it happens is definitely part of a larger plan!
And although I am not ready for mini-me's right now, I still find myself buying baby clothes-I think I have more jeans for a newborn girl right now than I own for myself! Good luck with the "process"- and enjoy the "work" involved too!! :)

Oh, and just so we are clear, coming up for a girls trip would involve a lot of drinking, so...make it happen soon :)

Yes, lots of wine in the Windy City...I know! I'm trying to get Tara and Bri on board for a trip while it's winter. You know, so we could actually see snow - since it's a balmy 79 here today! I miss my winters! Damn global warming!
