Happy New Year!

So much for the 'I plan to keep posting on a regular basis' - a statement from my last post on November 8! I pretty much got completely sidetracked and have been totally absent from blogland. I just started poking around again and see that I have missed quite a lot. I'll say once again that I do plan to keep posting (as anyone who is still checks this blog starts laughing and thinks 'yeah right!')

In brief: I saw my RE this week. Yes - my RE... to discuss a possible IVF #2 this year. At the moment, I am totally happy with my precious little one, but realize that my time is limited, since I am almost 38, and if we want to try to have another child, we really don't have the luxury of waiting. I am still breastfeeding and plan to keep doing so until she is at least 6 months old - I cannot start any treatments until she is completely weaned. I know it may seem like we're rushing things... again, it's just because we have limited time. If I was younger, I wouldn't even be entertaining the idea of IVF #2 at this point. Even now, I feel a little odd - like I am tempting fate or something. We were so lucky the first time around - I feel almost like I am being 'greedy', already thinking of starting treatments again this year.

Of course, maybe I'll just suddenly become pregnant without treatments. (hahahaha!)

Anyway, little C is doing great. I guess I should go into more details about her, but for now, I will actually, finally, post a picture. :-)

Also, regarding the comment I made at the end of my last post about the comment left by the anonymous poster - I discovered that I made a mistake and misunderstood the comment. The person contacted me and I found out that I actually know the person. I am sorry for jumping to conclusions.

So, here's a recent picture of little C. Not sure why I picked this picture - she smiles so much, I probably should post a picture of her smiling, but I thought she just looked really cute here.

Oh what a cutie! I've been wondering how you are doing, but assumed that you're just very busy with parenthood. Glad to know that all is well. Thanks for sharing the photo!

Love the picture! Glad to hear you are doing well. That would be so cool if IVF#2 was successful and happened so quickly. Why is it we worry about being greedy when most people don't have to think twice about having a second (or more) child? I don't think you're being greedy at all.
