Finally: The Birth Story

Where to start?
Well for the stories that lead up to this story check out the previous posts: Getting there , The first day of the rest of my life & The Story.
Those all pretty much lead up to where we are today.
This pregnancy started with another round of fertility treatments in May/June of 2010. I was certain that this time was not going to work. It was taking to long for my eggs to grow to the correct size we even had to draw out the treatments a few more days which meant buying 3 of the Gonal-F pens at 900.00 bucks a pop. With doctors visits and other drugs this cycle came out to about $5000.00 total. I give the numbers not to say look at how much this kid cost but as a price for any other couple out there going through the same thing.

I can tell you that Connor was conceived on June 15th 2010 via Intrauterine Insemination. I took a home pregnancy test on Saturday, June 26 and got a positive! I was so excited! terrified that we would lose this baby again or that the test was w…

Helpless

My poor CB is congested and its killing me. I have never felt so helpless in my life. The saline and steam from the shower seem to be helping. Will report progress later.

To good not to share!

In case you couldnt tell... I'm NOT a Louisville fan!

Living Life One Handed

So yeah, I'm a mom! After 5 years of infertility treatments and heartache I'm a mom to the most perfect little boy that ever lived. So perfect in fact that I can't put him down! (hence the title of the post and the one handed typing that has become habit.)

I hope to be able to post my/his birth story soon, I need more than five min and more than one hand. :) In the mean time lets just say it was long, and used alot of drugs!

So lets start where we are, my Connor-bear or CB (as I will refer to him in this blog) is a month old. It's amazing to me how fast time goes by. I would always hear other parents say this and always thought they were full of it, now I know that this is the truth.

So lets hit the stats shall we?

Eye Color: steel blue
Hair: Full head, straight and dark brown
Length: 23 in
Weight: 7.7 pounds
Milestones: Smiles, some head control, can almost roll over.
Sleep: between 2-3 hours, sleeps best in Mom or Dad's arms.
Breast Feeding: close to 3 hours, this stil…

New phone, new app.

So I traded in my iphone 3G for this android 4G. Nevermind the fact that we don't have 4G here yet.
I'm hoping to blog more with this app since this phone is my only contact to the outside world while the kiddo is nursing.
More to come I hope:)
