Knocked up



Well the 2 and a half year infertility struggle has ended.

We submitted our paperwork to start down the adoption path the last week in December. Got a positive pregnancy test on Jan 4th How's that for the anecdotal "I know someone who got pregnant as soon as they started to adopt"?

We saw the little heartbeat last Friday. It looked like a piece of blinking rice.

Due date is Sept 14th.

Once your milk comes in, you have to change your username, though.

Same thing happened to an acquaintance a few years ago.

Except they adopted a newborn baby and the next month she got pregnant. The kids were less than a year apart.

The doctor said that all she had to do was relax and reduce her stress and she could conceive.

He was right.

Congrats to you!

A hearty salute to the blessed union of Egg and Sperm, created by the repeated rubbing of your respective sets of genitalia. May your baby be born into a world capable of sustaining lifeforms (preferably Class M), eventually grow to be considerably larger than when it first comes out, and one day become the inventor of the five-minute at-home breast-enlargement procedure.

To your fertile womb!

Congratulations, you are now in for a world of suffering and pa-I mean wonder and excitement!

Babies are truly an indescribable phenomenon. You will look at them every day and wonder: "this came out of me?" And I just donated the sperm, my wife is the one that really made the miracle.
