I never know what to say story is a bit complicated. Between the two of us, my fiance and I actually have 7 kids, but 3 are adults, so I didn't list them here. One of my children is Deaf. (Yes, she's "totally" Deaf...has about 5% of her hearing. No one is actually 100% Deaf unless it's due to an an injury. And yes, we know Sign Language. No, I won't teach you all the bad words, but Hannah probably will if you ask her.) I labeled myself as "trying to conceive" because none of the other labels exactly fit, either. We aren't really trying to conceive...I actually had my tubes tied back in 1996 when my son was born. It wasn't long before I knew that was the worst thing I could have done! At the time, things were really unstable for me, and I thought it was the best choice, but as life has stabilized, I find that I really want another baby.

Fast forward: I'm still afraid to say whether or not I'm pregnant...I won't even take a test yet, but I haven't had a period in over a month and WOW, am I nauseous! We almost don't dare to hope, but hope has a funny way of growing with each day that passes. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed at this point...if there's no visit from Auntie Flo by April 15, I'm going to suck it up and take that test. Wish me luck!
