My Best Valentines Day Ever - February 14, 2002






I didn't know it at the time that it would turn out to be my best ever Valentines Day. All I knew that day was that I was tired and frustrated. I was disappointed and scared, all I knew on that day was that I thought it was the worst day ever. I felt so defeated and I was telling my sweet hubby how I'd had enough. I didn't want to try anymore to have another baby. I felt I didn't have it in me to go through more injections and fertility treatments. We had been discussing it for months and I just kept putting him off but I had agreed that I would take my temperature and keep an ovulation chart. The three months without any fertility treaments had rendered no results and I told him that February was our last chance. I knew and the Doctors had confirmed that there was no way I would get pregnant without any intervention and I just couldn't go through it any more. I truely felt at that point that if I wasn't pregnant by then that our one little angel would just have to be enough. So needless to say I was supposed to ovulate around Valentines but things weren't all chocolates and roses. Hubs had the flu he had been sick all week and my daughter had been sick as well, I was sleep deprived and irritable the last thing on my mind was trying (failing) at making another baby. So late that evening hubs in his fever induced state begs for one last chance before our window closed since we hadn't been very affectionate in the days leading up.. So I gave in, I just couldn't bare to tell him no, all the while knowing that there was now way this was going to turn into anything. Well how wrong I was!!! I found out 4 weeks later I was in fact pregnant with not just one baby but two. My two sweet, crazy little valentines! As you can imagine nothing has been able to top that since. So happy Valentines day to my little monsters who gave me the most memorable Valentine ever, without them my life wouldn't be the same!
