New nephew!

December 4th, 2012, SIL went into labor!  How exciting, hubby and I were about to be aunt and uncle!  I remember getting the call, and so we raced home, grabbed a snack and raced to the hospital. We waited for several hours, she was in labor.  She started pushing late evening, and by 11 something, baby Jacob was born!  It was exciting, but we sat in that waiting room, and thought about how we were not sure when our time would come.  The sad thing was, we had tried a series of IUI's and nothing was working just yet.  We decided to take the holidays off, and now with the new baby around we knew we would be focusing on him.  Hubby had gotten the news just days before that his count was low, so as a result, his demeanor was off.  I too was sad and upset from the news.  I knew we would have to retest, and I didn't know what that meant for us.  I had gotten results that I had PCOS and that was why sometimes I ovulated and sometimes I didn't.  And here we were, sitting in the hospital surrounded by people having babies, and welcoming a new addition to our family as well, knowing that we were about to have a long road ahead of us, just didn't know the path just yet.

We were so excited about being Aunt and Uncle, it was a happy time!  And we could get some great practice with diaper changes just in case we needed it soon.  

We didn't know what we were in for at all.  And still, there was a lot of questions amongst family and friends as to when we were going to have a baby.  We just didn't talk about it much yet, because we didn't know what was really going on and we just wasn't sure how everyone would take it, the fact we were seeing a specialist (fertility at that).  You see, not everyone believes in fertility drugs, and assistance with conception.  I think that is crazy, but you have to be aware of the fact that its out there.
