so now that the baby is out of the bag, so to speak, i can FINALLY post because srsly? it's pretty much all consuming for me. it has been since ooooooh a year ago. while attempting to keep some privacy with regard to this, i will say that getting here has not been easy and we are lucky (except NOT) enough to be the 1 out of 1 in 6 that are afflicted w/ infertility.

long, agonizing story short, with the help of a wonderful (and PATIENT) team of doctors and the miracle of ivf, we are super excited to be here.

in OTHER news, i have a terrible head cold and hi, NO NYQUIL ON THE SAFE LIST! (obvs.) but i am a mess. the doctor suggested saline nose spray (which i sprayed in my EYE because it's like some super aerosal can???), gargling w/ salt water and a humidifier. two days later, i still can't breathe.

oh well. i also have no voice, which is my husband's favorite christmas gift so far. bastard.

Dude, try one of those hippie Neti Pot thingees. Works like a charm. Srsly.

The no-drug thing is a BITCH, for sure.

Congrats, Bosslady!

Tess beat me to it, but neti neti neti. Youtube it and after you finish cracking up, go out and get yourself one. I suggest a plastic one so you can travel with it. You'd be the 3rd preggers friend I know who's tried it in place of drugs.

Yay! Can't wait for the expanding steph pictures to come.
