    Oh, and I was thinking of going to buy girl clothes, so I'm already guessing girl for you, Mandy!

    Oh, for sure you guys will be part of the name debates. I have no question. If it's a girl, at least - I think we're pretty sure of our boy name choice.

    A summer baby!

    I just talked to Rich on the phone. I told him my mama board made me cry again but this time for happy reasons. I also said that I HAVE to get out to AZ this coming year. I wanted to anyway, but this really seals the deal. I'm coming somehow.

    I think I'll have to stop coming on to this thread for a few minutes b/c I keep getting all misty-eyed every time I read through it.

    We're off to a bonfire tonight to celebrate the crazy holiday that is Guy Fawkes night!

    Me too Ash...I keep getting all teary eyed over and over. But I don't care.

    I've had a mad-rush of memories of some of the hard parts of parenthood...would I wish that on my dear friend? Yes. I do. I'm excited!!!

    Chrissy, you'd seen the ups and the downs, haven't you! If you still wish it on me, it must be worth it!

    Ash, have a great time at Bonfire Night!

    Absolutely worth it! I know, because I'd do it all again. That's how I know I'm not wishing you evil. lol!

    Before today, I honestly have been wondering if I'm too old and set in my ways and curmudgeonly to adjust to a baby. But no, still want one!

    I like sitting around on my computer all the time, though. Better get my fill now.

    You'll be a great mama too. You're fortunate in that you'll be able to appreciate those 'little moments' all along. Because you're older. And because you worked to hard and waited so long to have this one. They are what you get you through the sheer craziness of being a mom. lol

    Just today Conner walked up to me to give me a hug for no reason. And he shared his candy with me. And he told me he loved me. Yesterday Bobbie posted a 'thank you' on FB for Mommy & Daddy (her words!) rescuing her when she ran out of gas and saying she loved us. No matter how old they get, there will always be those little moments.

    You'll adapt to whatever new rules your baby brings to your life. Mommy-hood is magical like that!

    I spent a great deal of time breastfeeding my twins while posting on APA. And then I had to hold them while they napped until they were about 18 months old, and even though I had to mouse very carefully, I still did that at the computer. Don't give up hope. And right now the children are making a fort in their bunk bed and DH is making me breakfast.

    ETA: They presented me with a stack of animal drawings yesterday and called it "animals.com" so maybe I spend too much time on the computer.

    L is right. I had one of those donut things (as many APA mamas did) and would feed Conner while lurking on APA. I'm sure I have pics somewhere

    LOL! But it is encouraging to know that you find a way.

    We had a little guy at work who was getting some behavioral health services, and he had some intervention plan stating that his mother would provide him with positive feedback every four minutes all day. My partner and I were sitting there wondering how anyone could possibly keep that up.

    Yeah!!!!!!! I just woke up (yes I slept in LATE today) and came on to this fantastic news!!!! Congratulations that is a very clear and beautiful BFP!

    Ok so I vote Girl AND Boy! You had two good sized follies, right? ;)

    One big and one smaller - but DH really wants twins.

    Jennifer, I confess my first thought was that now you need to get your baby ... and my second thought was that it was too soon because I want our babies to be the same age! So you should get yours in about ... Let's see ... 8-9 months!

    And Myles, you better get busy. ;)

    I know! I thought that too. I just had a feeling that 2013 would be busy around here. Who knows, my baby could be being conceived right now....or maybe was two weeks ago. The agency doesn't like to get matches until towards the very end to give birth mom's a lot of time to think about their options and what they really would like. Our friends who just placed didn't get the call until after he was already born.
    I don't know....I just always had this feeling it would be about two years and that puts me late summer/early fall of 2013. also felt we would be last in our group and only one other family is left.

    Great timing for Marcus too. He will be about a year old and should be fairly trained. I wouldn't have wanted to deal with a baby and my puppy but now that Molly is a year old, a baby would be totally fine. She is so young and curious and I think will take to the baby really well.

    I know it's coming for you, Jennifer. You're right, for all anyone knows baby could just be being conceived.

    You're right, that should make Marcus just a couple of weeks short of 1 year. That should be perfect - although I read Rottweilers have an extended puppyhood. Hopefully he will be a little calmer than he is just at the moment. He'd have to be. That way, too, he'll get to know babies while still relatively young.

    Yeah I fully believe it will happen and I'm feeling patient....at least right now! Waiting gives us time to get a little more ready....I'm trying to get some PTO saved up instead of using it so much. Or getting some more money saved up.

    Puppies are good when you are waiting, aren't they?

    I think I partially credit Marcus with my BFP ... this may sound cheesy but I was really depressed and having him in the house just revitalized both of us. Like - oh, good things can happen!

    They are perfect for waiting. I know the other girls in my group were just like dying while waiting it seemed and than there is me....and I don't feel like it's been 14 months at all. I don't know where the last year went because I was so busy with Molly for a good chunk of it.

    And yes I totally believe that being in a happier place instead of depressed can make the body at least somewhat more receptive.

    Congrats!! I don't really know your story but I can see it's something special.

    Hearing about NAK brings back memories. I had to go search for a pic of Leo how he looked every time he finished eating. Lol.

    Such a cute pic, Anna.

    I've been trying for five years with at least two miscarriages and a deployment along the way. The RE told me I should do IVF, which I can't afford, or adoption, which I also can't afford, or give up. Good thing I got him to listen to me and not the other way around!
