Should be sleepin...

But I can't...

So it's 2 a.m. and I'm sitting downstairs on my computer.

In about 6 hours I will go to the clinic for my blood test to find out if in fact I am pregnant. I'm so nervous already...mostly because I know that drop in the stomach when the nurse says "no...not this time." I'm dreading those words...I've heard them way too often over the past three years. I'm praying that this time the words will be different and that in nine months I'll be holding our child (or children) in my arms.

With all this struggle that I and so many of my friends have gone through, I'm absolutely amazed when I hear women getting pregnant so easily. Do you know how many things can go wrong? If you're a parent, please, say a prayer for your children...give them an extra hug today...watch them when they think you're not looking and appreciate everything about them (even when they're driving you crazy) Those are true, honest to God miracles you have there. Be proud...be oh so thankful.

Ok...getting emotional again...have a feeling I'll be doing a lot of that tomorrow regardless of the result.

So........

Here are a couple new layouts for you...my first as a Tracy Ann CTM...

As you can see I'm lovin' being on Tracy's Creative Team.

Well I think I'm going to try to sleep now...remember my request and please keep us in your thoughts.

Thank you.

I've never hoped & prayed more for someone to be pregnant (except maybe for myself). ;) I'm here for you either way, but I hope we get to do a little happy dance today!
