long time no see

so it's been a while since i've posted. i almost forgot about this blog, actually. lol. but, i'm hoping, this will become my ttc & pregnancy blog as i don't know how much people that read my other blog will want to know all this stuff.

things were supposed to have gotten started a couple weeks ago, but M had somethings go on that prevented him from getting together with us and figuring out the last of the logistics for ttc. he actually disappeared for about 2 weeks and finally resurfaced a few days ago and told us what happened. i'm hoping to talk to him soon. i think i might call him today and see if he can meet with me and jenn for dinner tomorrow so we can get this figured out. i think the most complicated part is the actual insemination. the original plan was that we'd do things naturally, but now that M has a partner, that may be out, so we're left with AI. ultimately i don't think there will be much of a problem with that - as long as my body cooperates. lol.

i've mentioned this before, but i'm obsessed with multiples and i've convinced myself that i'm going to have twins. lol. i know that the chances are slim, but i can't help it. i'd like to have twins. i know how crazy that sounds, but i think it'd be perfect - especially given my age. i'd rather get two out in one shot than have a singleton and wait for a second. i know, i know, i sound crazy. but i'm almost 30 years old and i'm so paranoid about complications, diseases and birth defects that go with age. there is a history of downs in my family, so that makes me even more paranoid. but the age thing is, again, where i am obsessed with the multiples. lol. statistically speaking, i have a better chance of having twins over 30 than i would have had at 20.

anyway... i'm excited, but i'm also trying to stay reserved. who knows how long it'll take me to get pregnant. there's no history of infertility in my family, so that's a very positive thing. i am, however, overweight, so that does play in a factor, but not a large one. fat women have babies all the time.

so, if you're reading this, think positive thoughts for me. we're about to jump into this pool with both feet first.
