TTC 2.0!

We are officially back in the trying to conceive game and I am so excited!  Nothing has happened yet, but we have made the decision to start trying in probably August or September.  Today at the grocery store we bought a pack of OPKs and it just made it seem really real.  I have such baby fever and it seems like everyone is either pregnant or has a new baby, which is making me crazy!  

From the few people we have mentioned it to (and if you know us IRL or Facebook please don't mention it), we have gotten a lot of questions on of we will use the same donor again.  And we will if we can, but our donor only has a limited number of samples left and they are only for siblings, so I feel like it could go either way.  We will just have to see, though I think our fertility doctor will store it for us for free, so in that case we will jump on it.  If not, we are going to just cross our fingers.  It's just not that important to us that Jude and his sibling be fully genetically related.  

So we will keep you posted on it all, S meets soon with the fertility doctor and we will get this show on the road!  It's going to be so different this time around with Jude around and having a little more experience with the whole thing.

License to Ill

Going to mommys day out twice a week and to the Y almost daily means that Jude has been exposed to lots of germs lately.  And of course as a result he has been getting sick a ton and so have we.  This week was the second time in three weeks that he was sick.  Mostly high fever, snotty, coughing, the classic cold.  But there has been some puking.  And it's kind of been a running joke with S and I that even though I'm the stay at home mom, she is always the one getting puked on.  I always seem to dodge the bullet.  On Wednesday Jude seemed particularly sick so S decided to work from home to help me out a bit as I wasn't feeling very good either.  S was working on her computer at the desk in our room and Jude and I were cuddling on our bed as he was really sleepy.  I realized it was time for more medicine but I wanted to take his temperature first.  So I ran downstairs to get the thermometer and Starr hopped into our bed for a minute to cuddle.  And just as I reach the bottom stair I hear S shout and run across the floor.  Sure enough when I get back upstairs not even two whole minutes later, he had puked all over her.  When I walked in she was holding him standing in the tub as he wasn't finished yet and all either of us could do was laugh as once again, I avoided the puke.

But yesterday my two year vomit free streak ended and while S was at work, I got puked on.  Though I'm sure if she had been here it would have somehow been her.  Seems like the little dude is feeling better now, thank goodness.
