denise  Ksenija- What a beautiful post! It took me a very long time to get pregnant, so I can totally relate to your story. It was when I discovered a book called "Taking Charge of your Fertility" and learned about tracking your basal body temps...a few months later I got that positive test result! I highly recommend that book for anyone who is trying to conceive. I also just wanted to say that you always look radiant and beautiful, but even more now with that baby bump! Congratulations to you and Mark!!  6.4.14, 10:15am
