Genetic testing, baby style

June 21, 2009

Even though I am a bad blogger, I wanted to share the news we got this week in a somewhat timely fashion.
After everything we went through to get to today, the results of genetic testing on Mr. O proved we made the right choice. He doesn’t have OI!
When I got the call, I saw on the caller ID who it was and I got those butterflies in my stomach. Like the ones when the RE office would call.
But it is all good, he doesn’t have the disease. Now, I know the lab guarantees like 92 percent accuracy. But, still, I wanted to be sure. And after cheek-swabbing a four-month-old, which was not fun by the way, two weeks later we got the word.
And aside from us, I think my in-laws were the next happiest people.
I am still in awe. It worked. I’m a mom. My hubby’s a dad. It doesn’t seem real but then I can’t imagine life without him.
Wishing everyone all the best. I’m still reading. Trying to comment and barely, obviously, trying to blog.


Bad bad blogger

June 6, 2009

Forgive me for not writing. And the fact that this entry will be short too. O hit 4 months yesterday. I can’t believe it. Everyday is wonderful. I’ve never been happier. And I’ve realized how much I could live without work.
Seriously. I am having a hard time finding balancing work, mommyhood and just me time. I’m not complaining, trust me. But I think it would be easier if I were working full-time in my office not this two days a week in the office, the rest from home. But I know I’d miss O too much. And, frankly, we can’t afford infant care right now (yay IVF loan and credit card bills!).
It’s all worth it though. I know that. I see it and feel it in every laugh, every smile, the silly sweet baby asleep in his room right now.
I’m still reading. I haven’t forgotten about you all. I promise to get better. I can’t get much worse, right?
