  1. Delaney is a GREAT name !!! If we have a girl next time (IF there is a next time, lol;-)) then that will be on our list... Funny b/c I was thinking if we did have a girl, I couldn't think of a "d" name I really liked...now I have one:-)
  2. Oh my gooodness, I TOTALY know how feel! We were totally worried about jinxing things, especially after going through IVF... I wouldn't even let myself look in the window of Pottery Barn kids when I walked by (and that store is RIGHT by my place:-)) It's kind of a weird mind turn...actually akcnowledging finally you're carrying a baby and it's even weirder when you start letting people (and work!) know:-) Names... My husband is Jewish so they have a tradition where if someone if your family has died, you name a child with the first letter of that person's name... (his sister di
  3. omg, omg, OMG!!!! Carly!!! I'm SOOOOO happy for you!!!!! For sure your brother is helping from afar!! I think I'm a bit teary for you too:-) BTW, we JUST found out yesterday - we're having a boy! I was actually convinced we were having a girl, so it's gonna take some time to wrap my head around a boy (what will I DO with a boy I asked my DH?:-)) But as long as he's healthy, we're happy:-)
  4. Hi there! I used the Extreme version of Fotofusion...which is, agreed, expensive (around $300)... I bought that version for a number of reasons, one of them being that I too, LOVE designing albums and knew that I'd be using it for designing family albums after trips as well as albums for friends etc... PLUS, I'm a bit of a control freak when it comes to stuff like that and idd not want to drive a designer crazy by constantly asking for changes to what they'd done:-) That said, if you don't mind someone else designing for you, then I'd say between the cost of the software and th
  5. Hope everything's okay! But stress CAN play a huge factor, so it is probably just your job...:-(
  6. Thank you!!! I put my new (and limited) photoshop skills to work:-) My husband loved it and thinks I should start a business doing announcements, lol - so if/when you are successful in TTC and need an announcement... ;-)
  7. I thought I'd check in!:-) Just finished my first trimester screening and everything's looking good! *huge sigh of relief* We are finally starting to tell people...I just told my work yesterday:-) I also just posted an announcement for all my friends on FB...I'll try to attach it here, since we had some fun with it and I thought you guys might get a kick out of it:-)
  8. Hey, no problem - I'm just trying to remember myself:-) Okay, so, keep in mind, cost will vary greatly depending on size of album you choose, how many pages, and what kind of cover (leather, etc)...and of course, which company you use. I used Balck River Imaging, which is one fo the only companies I could find that sell albums like these to consumers instead of JUST pro photographers. I ordered a 12X12 black leather with 30 double-page spreads or 60 pages (or "sides" as they're sometimes called...) - which is actually pretty large and thick:-) So my total order, with taxes
  9. oh my gosh -- SOOO glad to hear this!! For you and your new family AND b/c it really does give me hope everything will be okay:-) I agree about Baby Center... a friend told me about this site... You can register on the site and get weekly emails updating you on what your baby looks like that week, what parts are developing etc...it's pretty cool:-) Sooooooo...bit of a story to my u/s on Wednesday, but the bottom line is, there is at least ONE in there with a god, strong heartbeat, so that is fantastic news:-) A teeny bit disappointed it's not twins as the thought of going through
  10. 15 weeks...that's REALLY sad to hear, so sorry for your loss. I am totally worried something like that will happen for us since it was hard for us to conceive...I keep thinking *something's* going to happen...just being anxious I guess. I have my first ultrasound tomorrow and am praying everything looks okay... Sorry to hear about your struggles...a lot of us have bee there unfortunately, and we're here for support
  11. Hi there! Actually, the album is done digitally...i.e. I assembled the layouts for each of the pages on my computer and then I emailed those files to a online company who does these books. That company then takes my emailed JPEG files and prints them into this book. The pictures are actually a part of the page, if that makes sense...like a magazine page. I doubt a home printer, even of very good quality, would be able to print these types of pages out...especially b/c they are thicker than regular paper... even thicker than cardstock paper, but not quite as thick as cardboard:-)
  12. Congrats to SeaPrincess too! VERY nice way to tell your hubby TLGnhci :-) So, I had my second blood test this morning...first was on Tuesday...and both show a BFP!!!! Finally!!! I'm really starting to think this thread has some good karma or something suddenly attached to it:-) Next up...and ultarsound in July... Now I can spend my time worry about THAT:-) (BTW, I *tried* to surprise my husband with some pink and blue balloons, but he wrecked it:-) He caught me in the elevator with the balloons after work:-))
  13. just read this! CONGRATS to you too!!! Wow, this forum must be good luck!:-)
