October Updates

Well, after our BFN from last month, we have taken some time off and will be meeting with our Dr today to review our options. That was strike three with the fertility clinic and we may need a more aggressive approach. So we will see what she has to say. My poor Wren, she has been saying lately that she feels she is constantly surrounded by babies or pregnant women. I'm hoping our dream will come true soon!

On a side note --- for those of you still TTC, do you ever think to yourself -- "Wow, look at how busy we are with NO children....what will life be like when they arrive?"  For those of you enjoying your bundles of joy --- how do you do it?  It does seem like our schedule has been jam packed lately. However, we have been able to make time for fun. Two weekends ago we were in Wren's hometown for the Mountain State Forest Festival which is ALWAYS a good time. We even cheated our diet and had corn dogs and funnel cake! This past weekend we enjoyed the Northern Va Wine and Balloon Festival (minus the balloons due to wind) with our wonderful group of friends. I will even tell you that Wren indulged in two, yes TWO glasses of wine! She has been so good and so worried about "preparing the womb" it was nice to see her let loose and relax a little. She even had a pumpkin latte yesterday morning! Look out!

This coming weekend, Wren's Mom will be visiting us. This gave us a reason to move the guest room from upstairs to the tv room downstairs.Wren's Mom does not do well with stairs. Why is this important you ask? The tv room got moved to the basement, guest room is now downstairs in what was the tv room and the guest room upstairs can now become the nursery! This has been our plan since we bought the house but just being able to make the transition makes it seem like we are much closer to our goal of bringing home a baby. We have been to Lowes and brought home several color samples, put them up on the wall and I think we have agreed on a color. I'm sure this will be a project in the very near future.

Also, the end of this month is Halloween. We are going to throw our first Halloween party and we are very excited about it. Our home was built in 1930 which makes it the perfect house to convert into a creepy, abandoned house, complete with old creaky doors and all!

So all in all, October has been and will continue to be a busy month. We are both looking forward to our meeting with our Dr today and planning for our next attempt at "Operation Baby Bird." We hope you are all doing well and we will keep you posted.



  1. We have that conversation often..we will be sitting on the couch watching t.v. and one of us will say, can you imagaine a little toddler running around here right now! I think Ang and I purposly seek activities and things to do to keep us occupied, but are looking forward to actually having a baby b/c we can't wait to stay home more and being homebodies!

  2. I hope your appt with the Dr went well today and you were able to put together a more agressive plan. Tell Wren to imagine that she's in the back of the buick with some jack daniels and a pack of cigarettes and that should do it! ;)
    We're now within about 2 months of welcoming our little one. I'm already freaking out a little bit on how we'll manage time and a little person. Crazy, I tell ya.
    Good luck!
