Just 2 words

Not pregnant. :) Oh well. I was hoping it would work the first time but it takes an average of 3-6 tries to get pregnant (for anyone, not just using AI).

Of course I was sure I was pregnant. Of course my period was later than expected. Of course I bought a pregnancy test and took it this morning and saw the "Not Pregnant" before I realized I had just gotten my period.

Next time will work.

In other news, vacation was great. We'll have some pics up in the Picasa album soon. Or if we're Facebook friends, you've already seen them. :)

And now .... we wait.

Insemination day! Yay! Now we wait ...

I'm glad we're going on vacation next week so that I can't get too crazy trying to analyze every feeling I have to try to figure out if it means I'm pregnant or not. However, as much as I tell myself that I am not going to obsess over it and that I'm not going to do a pregnancy test until two weeks from today, I am sure I'll have myself convinced by the end of the trip. That's exactly what happened the first try when we tried the second time. We went to Chicago for thanksgiving about the same amount of time afterwards and by the end I was convinced I was pregnant. :) But I wasn't. Hopefully if I am convinced I'm pregnant by the end of the trip I will actually be pregnant.

So don't expect much before two weeks is up. :)

In case you didn't already see it on Facebook, our own possible submission to Shit My Kids Ruined.

Who knew the 4th of July deserved 2 days off?

For some reason Google has given us both Monday and Tuesday off for the Independence Day holiday. I am definitely not complaining, just think it's funny. I keep thinking today that I have to go back to work tomorrow, but I don't!

I left work a bit early on Friday, too, so I feel like I've been home forever. And tomorrow I get to just hang out at home with Jen and Nate, then Jen has a job interview and then we're probably going out for dinner.

We went to the beach for the first time with Nate today, and though he was a little confused and didn't really know exactly what to do he ended up enjoying the sand and digging and even enjoyed being carried into the ocean (but he wouldn't let us put him down). He pointed at seagulls and other kids and boats and ate plenty of the Munchkins we had picked up at Dunkin Donuts on the way to the beach. He's been napping now for 2 hours with no signs of stirring. Once he gets up we're going to run an errand at Target and then maybe go get ice cream!!

Sometime at the end of this week or the beginning of next we'll be heading to the doc for our first IUI cycle. Probably Monday, but I could be wrong. I called up the sperm bank with a list of our top 6 donors and they had plenty of vials of the first guy available, so we went with him. We ordered some up and they'll be ready and waiting for us whenever we go in. It would be pretty funny if it works this time because my period was on the 30th (of June) and when we got pregnant with Jonathan my last period was on the 30th (of April) and when we got pregnant with Nathaniel my last period was on the 30th (of December). So it seems a propitious cycle to try. :)
