After another aggravating phone call and lots of stress, our swim team arrived today! Thanks for the comments by the way. It’s good to hear we aren’t the only ones who thought it seemed a little odd.
Originally we thought the swim team was going to be delivered this afternoon and were wondering how odd our nanny thought it would be to tell her she had to stay at the house until it arrived. Phew, awkward conversation avoided. She did sign for it though, which is kind of funny. Did I mention our nanny is LDS (Mormon)? She’s a good one though, in fact one of the reasons we liked her is because she has two moms herself. I always wonder how Mormons like her deal with it though. They totally love and accept people who are gay and lesbian, but their religion (which they believe in wholeheartedly) tells them we are sinning. Hmmm. All I know is that she is great and she loves our son, so it’s good enough for me.
So, J got a positive OPK this morning and a peak on the fertility monitor. We were thinking we’d do the insemination 18-24 hours after the positive. 18 hours puts us at around 1 am and 24 would be 7 am. We had a brief chat this morning and J was leaning towards the middle. Who isn’t up for a 3 am insemination? We’ll probably be up with Nature Boy anyway 😉
We talked last week. I was feeling bad for not being as TTC obsessed for #2. I think part of it is because I’m not tracking MY body and analyzing every twinge and speck of cervical fluid. J feels somewhat the same way too though. It’s just different when you already have a baby and that baby takes up 150% of your life. I was relieved that J wasn’t upset by it. I didn’t want her to feel like she got the short end of the stick when it comes to getting and being pregnant.
It suddenly seems more real now though. I saw that familiar package from the bank and got butterflies. We are having another baby! I’m so excited and I’m nervous and messing up the insemination and I am already a wreck about the TWW, which hasn’t even happened yet. I’m really hoping we get lucky and it only takes one try. A girl can dream right?
