Numero Dos

I've been contemplating writing this post because there are a lot of people who read this who know my family IRL. To be quite frank, I am not sure I am ready to discuss this subject beyond this post and with my immediate family. So beyond cyberworld, shhh.

We are considering having a second child.

More than anything the reason I have started contemplating this is because I was planning a vacation to Hawaii. As you can imagine, people in Alaska often vacation to Hawaii as it's close, warm, and beautiful. So here I am contemplating dropping a wad of money on a vacation when I really would rather put that money towards having another child.

So the discussion began.

With my hubby.

With Fairyeggs.

Between Fairyeggs and her hubby.

Then I shoot off an email to Dr. Leprechaun.

Then I start trolling donor agencies for options.

And suffice it to say, after all of the discussion and email. None of us know what we want to do.

Stay tuned.



  1. Exciting times - either way! Best of luck deciding. :-)

  2. I am kinda the same way...but we have to decide next month. Ugh...

  3. I know exactly how you feel. I am already thinking about when we'll call our RE for a consultation to get the ball rolling. This fall? After Christmas? After New Year's? I dunno. It's all very confusing and exciting.

  4. Exciting times!!!! Good luck with the decision.

  5. That's a lot to think about... I feel like we're in the same spot (but for our first!). I'm getting restless with the agency, but know my body is messed up, or at least my eggs, its a big step! Can't wait to here what everyone decides!

  6. Yep, we're in the same boat right now. I was even talking about doing some iui's. Then I kind of snapped out of it. Kind of. While I know IVF isn't an option for us anymore because of the lack of coverage and certainty, I am ready to very loosely begin the adoption process again. Did I really just use iui, ivf and adoption in the same paragraph?! See how confused I am?! ;Good luck with whatever you decide!

  7. Wow - how exciting! Keep us updated on the decisions - I'm sure it's hard making the decision, but it will be fine, I'm sure.

  8. hi! i am so glad i found your blog! your son is beautiful. i'm looking forward to following your story and wishing you lots of luck on whatever decisions you choose! :) my husband and i are recently in the process of deciding if we will pursue donor sperm after 5 losses due to his chromosomal inversion. i also have a blog about our journey.
    best of luck to you and your family!
