I am so excited about tomorrow's FET.
I've been sleeping in and getting exercise. I especially like this DVD: Yoga Practices for Fertility. It makes me feel powerful, strong and healthy.
Today Mr. Jem and I drove into San Francisco to meet family and visiting friends at Golden Gate Park and went to the De Young museum. My aunt wanted to see an exhibit of Amish quilts. Most were from the 1930s, swirls of vibrant colors, abstract designs crafted so carefully, with so much attention and love. As I walked through the exhibit, winding my way through the maze of quilts, I tried to imagine what life was like for these anonymous women, wearing drab clothes, no electricity, creating such beautiful works of art. I can imagine their daughters learning to quilt.
Oh, how I yearn to teach my own daughter to knit, to cook. I want to watch her explore the world and become her own person. If future baby ends up being a boy, I want to teach HIM to knit, to cook, to explore the world and become HIS own person.
Like I said, I'm SO ready for this FET, for this process (it IS a process) to work.
I want a baby, dammit! I couldn't be more ready.
