Cupcake is 15 weeks old!! I can't believe in just a few short weeks Cupcake won't be Cupcake anymore.....it will either be our Boy name or our Girl name. That's so unbelievable.
At week 15 they say the baby can now hear and respond to your voice. Now is the time to start talking and signing to your belly. Well after I told hubs that last night he couldn't get is head away from my belly button. He kept talking and touching, cupping his hands around his mouth and yelling. It was hilarious. The only funny part about it I thought is he kept using a funny voice, like a baby voice or the voice he uses when he's imitating how the dogs would sound if they spoke. I thought it was so funny because I was like, "Your baby's not going to know who you are unless you're planning to always talk like that!" Haha, it was so cute. He is so cute.
It was fun too because I started to feel little jabs or flutters. Could that have been my baby move? I've been feeling those more and more but they don't feel like much but little dull pain spots so I've just been thinking they've been gas bubbles or something. But last night they were crazy flutters when he was talking to Cupcake. So much fun.
Next week is just a Dr. apt. then in a couple weeks after that we'll have our ultrasound to see it's blue or pink for this family. Can't wait!
Or at least that's what I told my SIL (sister-in-law) that I feel like. . Here was the conversation and the "Ah-Hah!" moment! . SIL: "So are you showing yet?" . Me: "No. I have a belly but I think I'm just gaining wait. I'm getting fat." . SIL: "Well, what the hell do you think you're getting a beer belly? Your pregnant crack-head!" (p.s. crack-head is a very dear form of endearment from her!!) . Me: "HAha!! Yeah I guess you're right! I can't blame it on the beer anymore!" . Gotta love those friends who can help you keep things in perspective! . Tiffany

I am a twenty "something" year old who, through trials and tribulations, i.e. needles, pills, dildo cams and sperm clinics, have finally been blessed with a little miracle baby. This is my journey of infertility as I try to laugh through sarcasim and battle pcos, all while keeping the romance in my partner and I's new found intimacy (if that's what you call it when you know their sperm count, and they've seen your ovaries.)
