Laura posted a meme on her blog today and I am lifting it for my blog
This is a photo of my brother-in-law Asher with Aaron when he was about 6 or 7 months old. Uncle Ash had come for a visit and some bonding time with his nephew
Im not going to tag anyone but feel free to lift this for your own blog
Step 1: Try to conceive for almost a year. Don’t tell anyone except close family.
Step 2: Have multiple doctor appointments that include many scans and scripts for Clomid.
Step 3: Discover that your tubes are blocked. Have a laparascopy to clear them.
Step 4: Try more Clomid.
Step 5: Come out the closet.
Step 6: Have a scan that shows you have no viable eggs and your lining is shit.
Step 7: Psych yourself up for maybe having to move from your doctor to a fertility specialist if your next cycle of double dose Clomid doesn’t work.
Step 8: Fill out many many application forms for procedures, medication and scans applicable to Infertility that may or may not be paid for out of the Prescribed Minimum Benefit. Send to medical aid for approval.
Step 9: Receive approval from the medical aid much to the astonishment of your doctor who told you medical aid would not pay for it.
Step 10: Wait for your period so you can start the next round of double dose Clomid.
Step 11: Pee on a stick the day your period is due. Expect it to be negative
Step 12: Make sure you are sitting down when you take a look at the test and two lines show up!
So, I wrote this post 4 weeks ago, when we first peed on that stick. We didnt want to say anything until we had been for our first scan which was this morning!
Baby aka #theSQL, is perfect, measuring 7w5d and has a beautiful heartbeat of 144bpm.
Im already showing (have been since about 5 weeks!). Im feeling ok-ish, started with morning sickness last week and it mostly hits me at night, Im also exhausted all the time, which I wasnt with Aaron at all. Oh! My boobs are already growing! WooHoo for bigger boobs!
We are so so so over the moon, it still doesn’t really feel real…

*This post has been coming for a week!*
We had so much fun. It took Aaron a little while to warm up but once he had he was so into it. He ran, jumped, threw leaves, demanded attention, took Jeanette’s hand and led her around and just had an absolute ball.
The sneak peek Jeannette put up on her blog is amazing, I can barely choose my favourites from those ones, how in heavens name am I supposed to choose from the full batch we will be getting?
I am having THE. BEST. LUCK. EVER!!!!!!
Then this evening I recieved an email from GROHE telling me that I won the competition that I entered on their Facebook page to be a GROHE Shower Ambassador! And this is what I won! Its a hand held shower! And the best part? We really really needed to replace our hand held shower, the whole thing is falling apart…

Why? Please, please, please can someone explain why?
Why when there is a line of cars driving down the road, the one guy waiting to turn into that road waits until just before the last car is about to pass him and then turns?
In front of me!
When there is not one single car behind me!
Could he not wait the 3.5seconds it would have taken for me to drive past before he turned?
Must he rev his engine and pull into the road right in front of me, forcing me to slam on brakes?
When there are no cars behind me!!!!
