busy makin' stuff

like blankets, hair clips, onesies, bibs, aprons and babies. Yes, you read right. Babies. No, I am not pregnant. But soon I will be! Here's hoping. For a baby...

It has indeed been six months since that awful, fateful day and we are now good to go. I've done lots of research this time around, to help ensure a good and healthy conception (and pregnancy). Let's hope it pays off, because I am so very ready for my baby.

Last week a friend of mine stated the obvious: "It's kinda hard to watch other people get pregnant and have babies when you're not." Uh, yeah, it kinda is. I have another friend, or two (or fifty), that are due either on or around my supposed due date, May 11th. That's less than a month away, people. If I were still pregnant I would be in that "it could happen any day now" stage. Crazy. But right now we're in the "wishin' and a hopin', thinkin' and a prayin'" stage. And then, then it's the "holding, and kissing, and squeezing, and loving" stage. Hopefully.

So yeah, we've been busy. *B

  1. Trust me. I know how all of that feels, except I didn't have a little one to come home to and the doctor told me that the pregnancy was a miracle in itself, hence the adoption process we are currently in. The waiting is the hardest part but it all ends up worth it in the end and we have to KNOW there will be an end! Hang in there!

  3. I love that you admit that you've been "busy". ;) I wish you the best of luck as you try for the next one! If the next one is as cute as the current one, I'd be trying too! I'm sure it will happen any day now. :)

  7. I just read your fateful day post - that's definitely a hard thing to go through :( There was a time when they thought I had an ectopic pregnancy in my first few weeks too, because I also had some bleeding and pain on my left side, and my hormonoe levels were lowish. But turned out they went up normally, and now we know the bleeding was related to preterm labour risks I guess I had from the start ;-)

    But anyway!! I hope this time everything goes smoothly and that you have a nice little one in 9-ish months!! :D

I believe the three of us headed to Brolums on that Friday night after April ran for our ward in the stake relay run. I remember going chip and salsa and ice cream wild, and dreaming of beaches and surfing and being that tan. Such a fun memory. I miss you.

  24. I love the hair clips--if you bring some to the reunion, I'll buy a few from you, I wouldn't know what colors to request so you could just bring whatever.
    BTW, I can't imagine what it is like for you but I'm sorry you had to go through it but I do hope you have a lot of fun trying again!

  25. Beth, I am so sorry about your miscarraige. I have studied a lot about healthy conceptions (hmmm.. I wonder why) and all I know is that you guys will make great parents again! By the way, I wish you were around to show me how to be so crafty. I need help!
