Trying to Conceive, Round Two: Part II

This is the second post in our story of trying for baby number two. Click here to read the first post. With so many failed attempts, a miscarriage, and a chemical pregnancy, Kendra and I were not sure we wanted to continue trying for another child. Her body was paying a huge price physically, and […]

Trying to Conceive, Round Two: Part I

When Addie turned one, Kendra and I started talking about trying for a second kid. We had four vials of sperm left from the same donor we had used with Addie. We were lucky to have even that many – when I called to order more after Addie was conceived, I was told he was sold […]

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and I feel particularly grateful this year. We had our six-week ultrasound appointment this morning and we saw our baby’s tiny little heart beating 112 beats per minute. The technician was awesome, and I loved the way she described what we were seeing – she said it was like a […]

We’ve got one!

I felt sick all night worrying about the baby – and Kendra.  We took the day off from school so we could head into the appointment early.  We also knew if it was bad news, we weren’t going to want to go in to teach. The relief was immediate when we saw the tiny little […]

The best birthday present ever!

We had the blood test this morning! The results came in, and she’s at an HCG level of 249.  That’s high… twins high.  I am convinced we have two babies on the way, but Kendra insists she knows her body, and it’s only one. She threw me a birthday dinner tonight – tons of our […]

Positive tests number 2… and 3!

We took another test this morning – the + was even darker.  Kendra still wasn’t convinced.  I took the day off from school because I felt even more sick than yesterday.  She came home with 2 boxes of pregnancy tests. I humored her as she took yet another test – this time one of the […]

Wait… WHAT???!!!

I left school early today – I am coming down with something… Kendra had stuff to do, so she planned on coming home later.  We had plans with Jenn and Kate for dinner, so they came up and kept me company.  We got to talking, and decided we should leave a pregnancy test on the […]
