At seeing this little beauty, DH quickly crossed over from cautiously excited to full blown I'm-Gonna-Be-A-Daddy syndrome, complete with giving a toast to our child "who will one day rid the world of cancer" and not allowing me to do much more than sit and stand, and then only in certain positions. It's adorable....but he's gotta calm down a bit if he's going to last the next 8 months!
Obviously, we are beyond thrilled. I am calling to make my first doctor's appointment today. Eek!
A special thanks to all of you who have emailed and posted your congrats and well wishes. I owe you all my sanity over the last months and can never thank you enough.

The Journey So Far...
1/05: We meet, as fate would have it, on the train home from work. After a week of chatting, he tricks me into asking him out.
7/05: Fourth of July weekend, his condo catches on fire. Displaced for 6 months for construction, he comes to live with me.
1/06: We move into the condo, officially now "our" place.
6/06: He proposes during a rained out trip to the shore. Yes!
6/07: Exactly one year to the day, we get married. Woot!
10/07: After multiple doctor visits, blood tests and two ER trips, I'm finally diagnosed with Gallbladder Disease. Two surgeries later, we are told BCP was probably to blame. As this isn't my first showdown with BCP side effects, the pills find their way to the trash bin.
11/07: We purchase our house and move in. We get robbed in the process, but hey, what can ya do?
6/08: Our one year anniversary, and we decide to toss all forms of BC and let what happens, happen.
9/08: With irregular cycles and a 60-day annovulatory in the midst, I head to my first fertility appointment. Bloodwork shows a possible PCOS diagnosis. Without enough information to do much more, we forge ahead in confusion.
12/08: It's a BFP! We are now anxiously (an a little cautiously) waiting for Lil G!
