The next step

I think I mentioned that Scott and I don't take things slowly. We knew we wanted to start a family soon after the wedding. I'd been visiting the doctor to make sure there weren't any problems. I didn't want to get married, then spend a year or two trying.

Well, there was a problem. After tracking my temperature for several months, it looked like I wasn't ovulating. I met with my Dr. (whom I adore) and he gave me a prescription for a mild fertility drug. I figured that we'd get married, fill the prescription, and start our family.

I went home, told Scott the news, feeling a little blue, but knowing we had plenty of options ahead of us. Scott, the optimist, urged me not to get ahead of myself. There was no real reason to think we'd have any problem having kids. Science can work miracles these days, right? Apparently, so can desire... We made a baby!!!!! Probably that same week we were told I wasn't ovulating! Okay, so it's a little sooner than we'd planned, but so what? We're thrilled, and terrified, and overwhelmed, and excited!

The due date is August 4!

  1. This makes me cry and laugh at the same time. Rebecca, Scott is a good, good man and is going to make a wonderful Dad. I know too that you are going to make a wonderful Mom. What a lucky baby!
