Happy ICLW!

Is it that time of the month again? Apparently it is!

I just wanted to say hello and welcome to anyone visiting here for the first time. My story, short version: I'm 10 weeks pregnant (despite my blog title -- sorry, I'm too nervous to change that until I'm out of the first tri), after a round of IVF and 2 years of trying via other means. (Means that, you know, actually involved sex.) This past month has been kind of a rollercoaster, in that we started off this pregnancy adventure with twins, and lost one of them sometime around 7 weeks. But we've still got (as far as I know) one healthy peanut kicking around in there, and we couldn't be more grateful. Or more nervous. When do the nerves stop?!?

I tend to spend most of my time here writing about infertility treatments, pregnancy after said treatments, food and TV (crappy and otherwise). I may be taking a bit of a break from TV, as my heart is a little broken over last night's Idol result. Not too heartbroken, but just a little bit.

Anyway, welcome. I look forward to getting to know a bunch more of you this week!

For me, the nerves never stopped. Even after bringing home children, I worry about different things.

I was also expecting and wanting Adam to win, but someone made a good point, "He'll probably do better without the A.I. contract."

Woot Woot for my Hometown Hero! (So sorry, I had to do that!)

Even though your AI loyalties may be a bit misplaced, I am eternally grateful that your blogging loyalties are spot on.

Thinking of you a lot lately.

Hugs,
Jo

My nerves have never gone away. Sadly, I dont know that I will ever feel "safe" on the pregnancy journey... But at this point I'll settle for "safer".

Good luck!
