well... i'm a semi-fertile mertile

i just want to throw a quick update out there.
i am completely overwhelmed by the love and support everyone is giving me. even people i don't know. i am crying as i type this. you guys are the bomb. you have no idea how much it is helping me.
it's like i can literally feel your prayers for me. thank you.
i feel like i am being so blessed... so many tender mercies.
it's the same kind of feeling i had after my mom passed away, where i feel like, yes, i do have to go through this, but that heavenly father is literally blessing everything around it. i feel loved.
i am day five of chlomid (you only take five a cycle) and for the most part, i have had none of the side effects i was scared of. i feel great. it's unbelievable. not saying that i still won't have anything, but so far so good.
i just got back from the hopital this morning where i had my HSG (dye test). it checks to see if your fallopian tubes are blocked. do you want the good news first, or the bad news? ok, good first.
my left fallopian tube is totally open and unblocked.
bad: my right one is completely blocked.
so it's good. it could have been way worse, and i can still get prego from one ovary.... but it didn't stop me from crying the whole way home. anyway, i could go on, but you get the picture.
i love you guys. i have the best friends and family ever.

I am doing the 'fertile-mertle' DANCE as we speak (got a visual yet?) - I've had GOOD SUCCESS with it so far! That is SO brave to go alone - can't tell you HOW MANY doctor apts. I went alone . . . even a miscarriage! You're doing it - every little step makes you stronger - really!

last sunday i told all the kids to write in their journals, later as i picked up all the journals left around the house (ha ha) i opened up rebecca's to have a looksie (smile) and she had written that today was fast sunday and she fasted that nicole and kelly would have a baby. It was so sweet. I didn't even know. we all love you and are praying for you. Won't it be exciting to see what combo you two make! and what spirit is sent!! watch out! can't wait.

Here's a little song I wrote for you, to the tune of Beyonce's "To the left". ah hem. here we go: "To the left to the left, all the little eggs in the tube to the left." Well, that's as far as I've gotten. But I'll keep working on it. Then you can sing it to your baby when he's born as a lulaby. I'll keep you posted on my progress.

here's a little more:
"You must now know about me, you must not know about me. I'm gonna make a mini-me in a minute. Matter-a-fact, she'll be in here in a minute. BA-BY." Stand by for more....
