My patience (or lack thereof) got the best of me

I broke down this week and bought ovulation strips.  Chris was all, "We decided to just wait and see what happens!" and I was all, "I waited two months, that's enough."  So hopefully, this month we will know exactly when I'm ovulating, which will lead to the successful creation of an heir :)  I really, really hope so.  After spending Easter with some of my family, where each person there proceeded to ask if I was pregnant, Chris came to the realization that both his family and mine are going to FREAK OUT when I am actually pregnant.  I'm like, duh :)  And here's another picture of the booger butt herself, just because she's so darn cute.

Still waiting...

So they say a watched pot never boils, and if waiting to get pregnant is like a watched pot, I'm in for a long wait.  I'm trying not to be anxious about this, but that's just not my nature :)  Month 2 of trying has turned up with no results.  I know two months is nothing and there are people who try for years with no luck, but I want this to happen NOW.  Chris is just going with the flow, but I know he was a little sad, too, this month when there was no baby.  At least we have Daisy:)

First Post

So this is my first post ever on our blog.  We're not going to share this with anyone until I am actually pregnant and we're ready to tell the world, but I thought it could be fun to start cataloging our journey so you all could see how it went before you even knew it had started. 

So right now, Chris and I find ourselves loving our life, but ready for our little family of three (Daisy counts!) to grow by one more (my clock is ticking rather loudly, at least in my head!).  So we are in the trying stage.  We hope this won't last too long, we can both be pretty impatient.  It's a strange feeling.  Each month, we wonder, will this be the month?  We know that stressing about it can make it not happen, but how can you NOT stress?  I'm so ready for this and the whole having to wait thing is killing me!  But we wait, as it is the only thing we can do...
