It was grueling LOL He said that he didn't want to put his dreams on hold and I told him he didn't have to. He was afraid if he had another, he'd have to put his desire for a garage and his cars to restore, on hold for several more years. I said, uh, why do you think that? I have NEVER stopped him from doing what he wanted to do and he hasn't with me either. So he's fine with another, he actually WANTED 5 to begin with while I wanted 2 LOL


So, it was reminding him that he didn't have to give up what he really wanted, he can have both

Nothing makes a hubby realize how much he wants another one until he thinks you might be pg! LOL!

Re: Told Brian last night!

That's outstanding and I'm sure it's such a relief to know that he's in the same boat with you. I'm very excited to hear about that and I know it raises your spirits!

I had to talk to my DH as soon as he got back to Iraq because there was the possibility for us to have conceived while he was home. Granted it was at the very,very end of his R&R, but still... there was the chance. I was nervous telling him because of some of the same reasons you listed. But it went over rather well and he was accepting of it and rather intrigued that we might have another baby! And when I told him I wasn't pregnant, he told me "That's ok. It's God's will and we also have next year when I get back." THAT was a relief to know that now I knew his heart was into having another baby.

I'll be excited to hear the test results soon!!!

I am having no cramping other than the stretching/pulling I have been having for over a week now and it was only when I wiped. When I got home I took a shower and re-checked my cervix to see if it was lower and opened (to signify AF showing up) and it was so high up, I could barely reach it! It then occured to me that I probably scratched the tender cervix with a fingernail, causing bleeding. My best friend is a nurse and she agreed with me as she had to do her OB rotation and check PG woman so it was good to verify my findings with her.

So I continue to wait for the lines. If I am NOT PG and my body is playing tricks on me (or am and am MCing) then we talked ALOT today about TTC

So it's official that we are TTC and WILL have a 2007 baby

So please pray that I have a sticky (if indeed PG) and if not, for AF to go away quickly so we can have fun DTD!

This has been so fun reading all these responses! Thank you all so much for caring enough to ask!

Wow, I want to know how you get an all day date! LOL!

We'll be praying for you and know that you have lots of mamas here that care about you!

My best friend and her DH went out of town last weekend from Thurs.-Sun. and we watched their child then so we traded those several days for their one for 1 full day for our 4
