I've got a bad case of the Butterflies-In-My-Stomach Syndrome.  It's 2am, and I've got a class for work at 8.  So why am I awake, with this building sense of nervousness?  I may have an idea.

After a riveting job-required course in Bedside Medication Verification (WHAT?!?!), we're leaving for Houston for a few final tests and we will meet with our doctor to go over our IVF protocol.  I cannot imagine anything more amazing than creating a new life and completing our family, but I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't scared to death of the whole process.  Excited of course, but completely terrified at the same time.  

I stole this quote from another blog I follow:

"You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think" 
-Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh

That Christopher Robin was one smart boy!  Hopefully our as-yet-unconceived children will be just as awesome.  I'm going to work on being brave and knowing that everything will work out just fine.    


  1. praying for you friend! remember "do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." (Philippians 4:6) good luck today!

  2. Mary Margaret, sending you all the positive thoughts I can muster. We will all be thinking of you and your husband.

  3. Good luck with everything and sending you lots of prayers.

    And you're right, Christopher was very insightful : )
