Did that really happen?

I can't believe that in 8 days B will turn 1! Where did the time go? It has been such an amazing 12 months that I can't really put it into words.

Funny, last year at this time, I had no idea that 9 days after Christmas I was going to be having a baby!!! I was ready to have a baby, but I wasn't ready to go into labor a month early! I was in total denial during that time. I remember going to see my doctor the morning of January 3rd and her telling me that I was 4 cm dilated. I was thinking to myself, this is okay-lots of women are stuck at 4 cm and they walk around pregnant for another 2 to 3 weeks!! This is perfectly fine, I am dilating-I am getting a good start-labor will be a piece of cake. As I mentioned before, I went back to work like it was a normal day! This is so insane now that I think about it. I was having contractions the entire time and I was still in denial about this entire labor business. I remember eating lunch with a few of my girlfriends and I was holding on to the sides of the table during my contractions!! I thought I was being all sleek about it, until months later when they brought it up and we were all laughing about it. My girlfriend's husband, who is a radio DJ ate lunch with us that day...and of course the next day he was talking about my experience on the air!! That was hilarious...they gave me a copy of the clip so that I will always remember it.

I wen home shortly after lunch and I remember laying on the floor from the pain. I called my doctor and told her I was having these weird pain-but I didn't think they were contractions-they were about 9 minutes apart. She told me to go to triage when it becomes 5 minutes apart. Did I mention that we were getting the carpets replaced the next day?! So S had to make some last minute phone calls to cancel the appointment. Needless to say our house was a disaster since we had to clear the rooms for the carpet guys. When S came up to get me to go to the hospital, I was in the bathroom. He asked me what I was doing and I said I was trying to do #2-I think once I will do this I will feel much better. I really think I was just constipated!!! This is so funny now, but it wasn't during that time! So, off we go to the hospital with 2 suitcases!!! All the doctors were making fun of us...they wanted to know where we were going! I have to give S credit since we were so unprepared..I think he did a pretty good job!

Here we are, almost a year later and I can't be thankful enough for everything! B is doing so well. He is almost at the verge of walking. I think in the next month he might take his first few steps. He is saying some sorts of words, but I really don't think he knows what they mean. He loves to say, "up", "oh-uh", "dada". He is bored with baby food-he is now on 100% table foods. I have a bunch of frozen foods in the freezer that I have no idea what I will do with them. He is also bored with his milk-drinking 17 ounces a day is a good day for him. He is going thru some major separation anxiety-which is bad if you are vacationing for the holidays and he is around grandma, grandpa and aunt and uncles!!

**Update on IVF #2
I start Lupron shots this Friday, the 28th. I go for my baseline u/s and blood work on January 8th. If everything checks out, I starts stims on the 9th! I can't believe that this is happening. I've been so busy with the holidays and vacation that I haven 't really started focusing on this cycle. Maybe that is a good thing...I need some kind of distraction. I received my shipment of drugs last week and I forgot how overwhelming it was to get those drugs! At least this time, I am not as intimidated.

Isn't it amazing how fast the time goes? It's like one minute you get a BFP, and the next thing you know, they send you home with a baby! And now that baby is turning 1! Obviously it's not that easy of a story, hehe, but sometimes it does feel that way. Good luck to you on the start of your next cycle!

I can't believe it's almost a year already! (And I had to laugh about you thinking you were constipated instead of in labor...!) Happy birthday to B!

I'm not sure if I'm counting my days right, but Happy Birthday B!

Crazy to think about where mommy was one year ago today!

Have a great one!
