All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!



I am so tired but have to report two things.

1) I had to call our RE’s office today to report my CD1!  I will go in for a sonohystogram next week and we will start our FET next cycle (end of August setting us up for a transfer in October) – this one was too close to the end of nursing.  I am just fine with it.  They did tell me that depending on when I get my next period, that their annual week off for a big RE conference could interfere and we may have to push until the following cycle.  Surprisingly, I was just fine with that.  We conceived Matthew in October and if our first FET works, I would like for it to not result in a shared birthday for either of our children.  Beggars can’t be choosers, but I’d be perfectly happy with a month delay if they’d like to give it to me for this very reason.  I’d also be happy getting started as soon as possible.  I’ll take what they give me!

Is it weird that I really enjoyed my conversation with the nurse?  She’s new since we’ve been there and I’ve wanted to get to know her before going in.  We hit it off over the phone – so now I can’t wait until I meet her next week!  I love everyone at this clinic and look forward to seeing them all again!

2) I’m happy to report that we are so on-board with CD-ing (cloth diapering) that I purchased 5 more diapers last week and they’re here!  There was a buy 4 get 1 free deal so I did it.  I now have enough to definitely only wash them every 4th day.  They have the vel.cro closures and I like those.  I only had one like that and I really liked it and that prompted me to buy more.  Exciting times over here!  They better not release any new prints or I’ll need to buy more.  I think CD’s are just so cute and addictive.  Seriously!

Love that padded tushie!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. Cheers for CD1!! I think it is great when you have a good rapport with the staff at the RE’s office; you have to be there so much, it’d be pretty miserable if you didn’t like them. That padded tush is pretty darn adorable. 🙂

  2. I’m glad you’re feelign comfortable with the pace of TTC#2. I am very curious to see how I’m going to feel about the whole thing.

    YAY for CD!

  3. Yay for CD1 already!!! I hope they don’t put you off for another cycle. You might be fine with it, but I’m impatient for you! LOL.

  4. We have that exact diaper! We love them SO MUCH. Those leg gussets are ridiculoawesome. We had our third diaper blowout today– third EVER– because Chicken had a big poop while sitting and strapped into something. These diapers contain so, so much, which is especially helpful when, like, five hours pass and I go “OH CRAP, I HAVEN’T CHANGED THEM!” (doesn’t happen often, but it does happen!)

    Are you starting over with newborn cloth this time?

    By the way, we’re still probably a year out from TTC #3 (holy crap, number THREE? This twins thing has me all thrown off) but your sentence “calling in CD1 to my RE’s office” made me shudder a bit in fear. I am traumatized, I think. lol.

    • I hated calling in my CD1. It freaked me out!

      You know, we’ve talked about buying the “little joeys” from rump.a.rooz next time we have a baby. I’d be willing to give them a shot.

      I am like you – I absolutely love these diapers! I’m so glad we went back to them!

  5. When I saw your title I thought, huh? There’s no number after it. And then I thought, oohhh, duh, she means cloth diapering. And then I actually read your post and felt so darn smart. 😉

    In terms of TTC talk, I’m feeling a lot like you. I am ready to get started because I have no idea how quickly things will happen, but then I’m not in a hurry because I don’t want to overlap birthdays…

  6. Where do my comments go!? Argh! I’m starting to think the problem is me…dammit!

    Anyway, I love this post. I love this attitude. It brings me peace, so I can only imagine how you must be feeling (even though, you, you know, told us!). What a difference, eh? I think you are in the best possible place for this FET and I’ll be keeping everything crossed for you guys, whenever the time comes.

    Oh, and Hello Tushie!!

    • I have had the same thing happen. I have left countless comments and then go back to re-read a post and my comment is gone. Ugh. It happens when I post through my phone.

      Thanks! I am feeling so freaking good about things right now!
