Sorry for the short and downer post yesterday.  It was like getting smacked upside the head looking at only one line on that test.  But after eating cake for breakfast, listening to sad county music and crying, I felt more like myself.

Mother's Day ended up ok for me.  Me and my hubby went out to lunch with his Mom, and we had a blast.  His Dad had to leave yesterday for a week long business trip to Tulsa, so all of us kids are taking turns keeping Mom company.  She's such a sweet lady!

After lunch with my MIL we went and visited my Mom.  We had a lot of fun, and my husband even helped fix my Dad's computer (he's pretty much a computer genius).  It was a nice relaxing evening at their house.  On the way down to visit, I made a stop at my Grandma's grave and gave her some tulips from my yard.  That woman was my hero.  Someday, I'll tell you about her.

We came home, grabbed a birthday card for Scott's Grandma and went to visit her.  She just turned 80, and the family had an open house for her on Saturday. (we forgot to bring her card with us then)  She's still friends with a group of ladies that she grew up with, and it was sweet to see them sitting together talking.  The smiles on their faces made time melt a little and you could almost see them as teenagers talking about their latest crushes.

Anyway, contrary to the post yesterday, I did have a nice weekend.  Once I let myself move past the BFN, things got a lot sunnier.

And all this leads up to the conversation I had with my OBGYN today.  I OVULATED!!  Holy crap, my body did what it was supposed to do! Yes, it may not have made a baby, but its a step in the right direction.  The doctor told me he was also going to mail me a letter with my results, and I told him I was going to put it up on the fridge (I'll take a picture when I do, too)

So, yes, one part of the month didn't go as planned, but the other part did!  And if that isn't a silver lining, I don't know what is!


  1. Yay for ovulation!!! I'm excited for you!

  2. Ovulating is GREAT!!! Hopefully that means this month everything will come together and you'll get a spring baby! Spring babies are the best!

    My MIL and I have a great relationship too... I feel so badly when I hear of so many people that can't get along with their in laws.
