Happy New Year!!

Wow. I cannot believe this year is almost over! It's wild.. So much has happened. It started with our 1 year anniversary. We went to Disney and had a wonderful time. They gave us little buttons that said "Happy Anniversary". Very cute and they gave us some preferential treatment. We were in Epcot looking at the America exhibit when this guy in costume came up to me and asked my what my name is. I told him and he said "Oh! I have been looking for you!" Then he gave us a certificate saying "Happy 1 year Anniversary" Then he took us to the little restaurant and told us we could pick any dessert we wanted. So we did and as we stood there waiting for the desserts to come he exclaims " Hear Ye! Hear Ye! We have Mr and Mrs. M(last name) here celebrating their first anniversary with us tonight! " At that point everyone started clapping and cheering. It was really cute.

Then in May my MIL retired from 35 years of teaching and we had a huge party. It was really neat to see all these people who came out to celebrate this occasion with us.
In June we went to Alaska. That was awesome!! I felt like I was in a movie or something. Everywhere we turned, there was beautiful scenery and the people we so nice. We got to see a bear and a moose in the wild. We got back with a lot of wonderful pictures. I cannot wait to go back some day and show our kids all of the beauty of the Alaskan Wilderness.

When we came back we started TTC. We started seeing the RE at the end of June and by August we were pregnant! It was the most exciting and nervous time of my life. In September we lost the baby. I have never felt a pain like that of finding out my baby was gone. I did a lot of crying and soul searching. I never want to feel that pain ever again! In October, I finally passed the baby and we started TTC again. In November we got to see our family and it was so wonderful to have something to take our mind off of TTC. So, that was 2008 for us. I am hoping for a wonderful 2009 for us and for all of our friends and family!!

On the TTC front, we went to the RE yesterday and as I had suspected, it was a little to early. I have 3 follies in one ovary and 2 in the other. To which, DH says "Quints?!?!" LOL. He is soo funny. The follies are too small measuring at 10-11 mm. They would like to see the follies around 18mm. So, we go back on Friday. I am praying for nice big healthy follies! I already ordered the HCG shot and recieved it in the mail today! Wow, talk about customer service!! It got from Maine to Florida in about 24 hours! So, here's to hoping I will be Oing this weekend and we will be doing what we need to do. If you know what I mean *wink wink*

Well, that is all for now. If you have gotten this far, thanks!! Hope everyone has a happy and safe new year! Talk at you all later!

Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah Everyone!!

So, today is Christmas.. I am feeling ok,I guess. I just finished the Clomid last night. I swear this medicine is messing with my head.. I don't like being a royal bitch from hell. Yet, everything is annoying me. Even things that don't normally bother me are pissing me off. I hate this. I want my normal self back. I am sure my dh feel the same way. =(
On a lighter note, we are going to my mom's house this afternoon for Christmas. It should be fun. I like hanging out with her. I just hope I can keep my attitude in check... We are actually doing our gift exchange on Saturday because my mom fell on her bad knee again so she couldn't go shopping. My mom is the last minute shopping queen! LOL.

On the TTC front, our appointment for a follie check is Monday! I cannot wait to see how many follies we have. So, it looks like we are still on track for Oing on New Year's Eve! I think that's pretty cool. I just keep praying for success this time around....

Well, that is all for today.. I have to go check on my creamed corn now. Hehe. Hope everyone has a great holiday! Talk at you all later! =)

AF is here!

Well, AF made her grand entrance yesterday at about 9:00 AM while I was at work. Luckily I had protection and caught it just in time. So, this means I will be Oing around New Year's Eve! That's pretty cool. I am still pretty optimistic about all this. I went to my RE this morning for a baseline U/S to make sure everything was clear to start again. Everything looked good. The nurse started talking about possibly doing a Hysterosalpinogram to make sure there are no blockages in my fallopian tubes. They have to do cultures before they can do the HSG to make sure there is no unnecessary bacteria that might get into the uterus during the procedure. Well, they tried to do the culture this morning and couldn't because there was to much blood down there. So, if we do not get pregnant this cycle they will try to do the culture again and the HSG. I am hoping and praying extra hard that I get pregnant this cycle so I do not have to have the HSG.

In other news, I am pretty much ready for the holidays. The presents we got for our nieces are being sent out this weekend and I need to wrap my mom's gift and we are all set! Sunday is our family's Hanukkah party! I am excited! I cannot wait to see everyone. I cannot believe this year is practically over! Where did it go?? So much happened to us this year. I will be doing a retrospective some time next week so stay tuned! Well, that is all for tonight. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

P.S. If anyone has had an HSG, please tell me about your experience. Thanks!

RE Appointment Update....

So, we went to the RE this morning and the test was negative.=(
I'm bummed. I was really hoping and praying for a positive... Hopefully next cycle. DH is bummed too. He almost looked like he was going to cry... So, all my "symptoms" were just PMS rearing it's ugly head. I am actually starting to get cramps right now. This sucks! Now we wait for AF to show up. Then we will try again.. What else can we do? I wanted soo much to be pregnant for Hanukkah..

OK the pity party is over. Time to look to the future and get ready to start again. I am hoping AF comes by Friday. That would be nice. That would mean we would find out around the middle of January. Our 2 year anniversary is 1/14/09. That would be such an awesome anniversary gift!!!

In other news, work is going well. Our holiday party is on Thursday. We are doing secret Santa and I forgot to buy my gift for the girl that I picked. I will go out and get it tomorrow or Wednesday. On Sunday is the family Hanukkah party. That will be fun. I really love getting together with the family. For Christmas we are going to my mom's house. I am excited to show her what I got for her. She will be THRILLED!! LOL. I got her a new set of pots and pans. She needs them. She hasn't had a new set for like 30 years!!! I think it's time for a new set!

Well, that is all for today. Hope everyone has a great evening and I'll talk at you all later.

P.S. CONGRATS to my BFPB Laney on her BFP this AM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Friday!

I cannot believe this week is over! I was totally expecting it to go sooo slow but it actually went quick! Not much new going on in here.. Last night DH and I went to see the funniest comedian I have seen in a long time! His name is Jeff Dunham. I am sure I have mentioned him here a time or two. At first we weren't going to go b/c the tix were so damn expensive but last night my DH got a call from his cousin. It turns out they decided not to go and gave us their tix!! How nice, right?! We have to thank them properly. The show was awesome!! he was so funny and didn't skip a beat! DH and I are still bouncing lines from the show off each other and laughing.. LOL.

My mom went to the Ortho doc yesterday and he have her a shot of something in her knee. She's not sure what it was but she says her knee doesn't hurt as much today! Yaay! Small victories. I am hoping this means she is on the road to recovery..

On the TTC front, as you know, we will find out on Monday if I am pregnant. Very exciting! I still have all my "Phantom" symptoms.. Here's to hoping they are the real thing! My mom is soo excited to find out too. She keeps asking if we will really know on Monday. She even wanted to know if we would have a u/s to see the baby on Monday. LOL. Gotta love Mom. I told her no we would only know if I was pregnant or not and if I am then we have to wait another 2 or 3 weeks to "see" the baby and hopefully a HB. She's so funny.

So, as for plans this weekend, we really don't have any. At least nothing new.. Just laundry, grocery shopping and visiting my mom and his mom. Same old.. Hope everyone has a great weekend and wish me luck for Monday!!!

3 Months Ago Today....

we found out about the M/C.. I cannot believe it has been 3 months. Sometimes it feels like yesterday and sometimes it feels like a million years ago. I think I have moved on. I will never forget my little Eggbert but I really think I am ready to be pregnant again. I still get sad when I think of what could have been and all that but I am a big believer in things happen for a reason.. I just hope and pray that the next pregnancy goes full term and my DH and I end up with a healthy, happy baby. I really feel that I have grown as a woman because of this experience it and has changed our relationship for the better. We are more committed to having a family and we will be more appreciative of whatever God gives us.

In other news, my phantom symptoms are in full force now... Between the tiredness, nausea, moodiness and bloating I am a mess. I could fall asleep right now! I hope these are the real thing. My body loves to mess with me so I can never just say to myself "I feel like crap. Oh, I must be pregnant!" LOL. I told my mom about my "Symptoms" and her first reaction was "Oh yeah, you must be pregnant." I love my mom very much but she just doesn't get it. She was one of these women that sneezed and got pregnant. It's funny trying to explain to my mom about how fertility treatments work and the art of Ovulation and Baby-making! LOL. She's usually the one explaining things to me.

Well, that's all for tonight. Hope everyone is having a great evening... Thanks for listening to my ramblings. Talk at you all later!!!

9 more days..

but who's counting! In about 9 days I find out if there is someone growing inside of me!! I am so nervous, excited, impatient and a little scared. Just scared that IF I am pregnant, that something will go wrong.. I am trying to think positive! Ha! Get it, positive! LOL. OK, OK lame joke. hehe. I am starting to get phantom symptoms which doesn't help. I am tired (more so than usual), VERY moody (poor dh), a little nauseous but at night instead of in the AM and a little more hungry than usual... Aaack! This is making me nuts! I also think that I am comparing how I feel right now with how I was feeling before we found out about the 1st one.. It's totally messing with my head.

On the work front, I joined a new agency because I found out that the one I am working with is being dropped from the hospital that I am at and I really want to stay where I am at. I was hoping they would hire me permanently but supposedly, according to the assistant manager, there are no spaces. I know for a fact that is not true so I have to go talk to the manager of the department. Wish me luck! I am just hoping once the new agency gets all the paperwork they need that it will be a seamless transition from one agency to another and I can continue to work at the hospital that I am at... We will see what happens.

Well, that is all for tonight. Hope everyone had a great Friday and has a wonderful weekend! Talk at you later.

Happy December

Well, it's Monday. Boo. My nieces and their parents are already back home by now. They left this AM. It was sooo incredibly awesome to see the family and spend quality time with them. They absolutely LOVED the museum! I was so happy to see them having a blast and running around everywhere. On Sunday we just hung out at the mall and relaxed. No big plans. I was sad to say good bye. My older niece actually cried. =( She never cried before when we left. We will be seeing them in 6 weeks so that's cool. We are going up in January to visit them at their house.

On the TTC front, I start my Progesterone suppositories tomorrow AM. I have to take 2 a day vaginally. That will be interesting. I remember last cycle it got a bit messy but I have figured out how to keep it from getting all over the place. On Friday I take the second half of my HCG shot. I really hope all this works and that the baby sticks! We go in on December 15th for the pregnancy test!!! Aaah! I cannot wait!

Well, that is all for tonight. Hope everyone had a great Monday. Talk at you later!

Friday, November 28, 2008

It's O time!!!

I went to my RE this morning and the nurse "R" said I had 2 "Nice big follies" in my left ovary!! Yaaay! So, tomorrow morning I have to give myself the HCG shot. Then it's sexy time Sat,Sun and Monday! Haha. This will be interesting. "R" also said to start my Progesterone on Tuesday and come back for blood work on Friday. Whew! That is a lot to remember! I have it all on my calender. So, that means I should be testing in 2 weeks! Wow. This is totally awesome. Wish me luck!

So, today after the appointment I went Hanukkah shopping with DH for our nieces. We got some neat stuff that I hope they like. Then we went to the beach. Yeah, it's only 75 degrees out but we went to the beach anyways. It was a lot of fun and the girls really liked it. I enjoyed watching them play and all I could think about is how I hope next year at this time we have a 3 month old baby to take with us. Tonight we are going out to dinner at Red Lobster. Yum. Tomorrow we are off to the Children's Museum. I am really excited to go there! I hope the girls enjoy it as much I do. I have only ever been there a few times and I will be taking my kids there someday.
Here is the website if you are interested:

Well, that is all for now. Talk at you later.. I have to go make a baby now! LOL. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Vacation Rocks!

So, I am off work from today until Monday! It's so awesome. I saw the family yesterday and got to help my SIL put the girls down for the night. I love doing that. They look soo angelic laying there about to fall asleep. Tonight I am baby-sitting them so that their parents can go out to eat and have some adult time. I am not doing this alone. My DH and MIL will be there. It will be fun! Oh, I also got some updated pics of the girls! I have to get them scanned and post them so you all can see "my girls".

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!!! So exciting! There will be lots of people there and I am excited to see them all. This is our BIG holiday. Hanukkah isn't as big because my nieces are not able to be here to celebrate it with us. I think once DH and I have a kid, then we will make a bigger deal out of it. Right now only the local people get together for Hanukkah.

On the TTC front, 2 more days until we go to see the RE!! My appointment is at 7:30 AM! That is really early to be getting up on vacation! LOL. But, of course, I will do it and I'll be there on time with bells on my toes. I am still extremely hopeful this time around. I just hope to be making the big announcement on or around the New Year!

Well, that is all for now! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!! Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Talk at you later!

Monday, November 24, 2008

It's Monday...

So, there is only 3 more days until Thanksgiving and 4 more days until my RE appointment! I am praying for big, healthy follies!! I am really hoping I will be ovulating this weekend. If on Friday, the follies are not big enough we will go back everyday until they are ready to be released. Then the RE will give me a shot to make my body release the eggs. You can guess what happens next! *wink wink* Sometimes, I feel like this is all a big science experiment. hehe. As long as it works and the baby and I are healthy, that is all that matters. DH is starting to get excited about it. I think he is really ready to start our family. It's pretty cool to be at this point in our lives!

In Other News: It's so cool to have the family here. They are still with my FIL and that side of the family. We will see them Tuesday night and for the rest of the week. I got tix to the Children's Museum and I cannot wait to take them all there. My mom and I did a volunteer project there last December and they gave my mom 9 tix and I have been holding onto them ever since. It is so much fun for adults and kids.

So, I found out that my DH's cousin has tix to one of my favorite comedians ever!! Jeff Dunham! That's the ventriloquist/ comedian that has the really funny puppets. I would absolutely LOVE to go to the show! It's on a weeknight but I don't care! I am willing to miss a day of work to see one of my fav comedians! Now I just need to convince DH to buy the tix from his cousin!

Well, that is all for now. I will talk at you all later! Have a great Tuesday!

Day 3

Well, today is day three of taking the Clomid. Very exciting to think that about 1 week we get to see if there are any follies in my ovaries. The first time I saw the follies I thought "Wow, someday I can tell my kids I saw them when they were just a tiny follie in my ovary. How many moms can say that?! I think that is pretty cool. There is this phenomenon called the "Clomid Crazies". So far, I think I am doing well and I don't think I am acting weird. My dh might tell you otherwise.. hehe. Let's put it this way, I haven't yelled at him unnecessarily. I haven't yelled at him at all lately. I am so hopeful and excited for the days to come. I am trying very hard to stay calm and not freak out and try to tell myself "there is always next cycle". But I won't lie, I really, REALLY want to by pregnant by the end of the year.

In other news, my mom's results came back on her MRI and she does NOT have a torn ACL. Turns out she just has a really bad sprain with some arthritis. Yaaaay Mom! I am so glad nothing is torn or broken. At least we know now that it will only take her a little while to heal as opposed to possibly needing surgery and all that stuff.

So, this year is really going fast! I cannot believe we are coming up on Thanksgiving already! I am so excited! The family will be here on Saturday. We are going to see them on Sunday at the funeral and afterwards. I will try to get some pics on here soon.

Well, that is all for tonight. It time for me to go to bed. Yeah, I go to bed at the same time as the kindergartners! LOL. Hope you all have a great Friday!!!!! yaay! Talk at you all later! =D

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

Some Good News! (Finally!!)

Well, I went to my RE today and everything went very well. They did an u/s and some blood work. It turns out that my brain thinks that AF came when really she didn't. My uterine lining and blood work all reflect as if I got a period. It's called a silent period. So, that is pretty awesome! He also said I could start the Clomid tonight!!! Yaaay!! I have already taken the 1st dose! Woohoo! The next step is to start doing ultrasounds in about 10 days to check for egg follicles! Very exciting! The 1st follie check is on 11/28 (the day after Thanksgiving).. I am soooo glad we have finally gotten to this point!

In other news, the funeral for my dh's grandma is on Sunday. My BIL and SIL will be here Saturday night so we are waiting for them so they can attend. It will be interesting to see how everything plays out.

Tomorrow, my mom has her MRI and I am very interested to see what the diagnosis is. She is doing pretty well. She is still limping and wrapping her knee with an ACE bandage. I just hope she won't end up needing surgery.

Well, that is all for now. Talk at you all later. I'll let you know how the MRI goes. Now I just need some healthy follie dust!!

P.S. In case you were wondering, that pic on my profile is me at the age of 8 months. =)

Sad Day....

The world has lost a wonderful lady today.. My husband's grandma died today from complications of Pneumonia and CHF. She was 89. We knew it was going to happen soon but that still doesn't make it any easier. The funeral is this coming Sunday. She will be terribly missed. The worst part is that she will never get to see our kids. I think that's the part that really gets me.
R.I.P Grandma Bernice.

In TTC news, I called the RE's office and I have an appointment tomorrow morning for blood work. I feel horrible. I am so incredibly bloated, my boobs are huge (not sure what that's all about), weird cramps that feel more like gas pains then anything.... Ugh! I just don't know what to think anymore. So, I'll let you all know what happens tomorrow. I am hoping to get some answers as to why AF hasn't come and what is going on in there.

In other news, my mom is feeling better. Her MRI is on Wednesday and hopefully she will also get answers.. I wrapped her knee in an ACE wrap over the weekend and that seems to be helping. I am not 100% sure it is a torn ACL that she has. I am thinking it is more of a severe strain or something like that. I'm only a nurse. We'll see what the doc says.

Well, that is all for now... hope everyone had a god Monday. I will update tomorrow with what my RE says. Talk at you all later.

P.S. Welcome to all the new followers!!!!

Friday, November 14, 2008

It's Friday!!!

Happy Friday everyone!!! Hope everyone had a great week. Not much going on around here. My mom tore her ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) also known as a ligament on the side of her knee. She is able to walk on it but not for long distances. She fell in the parking lot at work a few days ago. She walked on it for a few days before she finally went to the doctor! She is so weird sometimes.. I am going to see her tomorrow and see what is going on with her knee.

In TTC news, AF is still not here. I am sick of this already. I called my RE and the Physician's Assistant told me to wait until Monday and if still nothing then to call back. What a bitch! She has very bad bedside manner. Very rude! So, I'll keep you posted when and if AF ever decides to show up.

Work is going well. I have been working where I am at for about 4 1/2 months. I am at the Employee Health Department. It's like a doctor's office only it's for the employees of the hospital. The ladies there are really nice and fun to hang out with. I am temporary right now and I hope they will bring me on permanent soon. We see lots of injuries and some of these people manage to hurt themselves doing the weirdest things! Makes the day interesting to say the least..

Well, that is all for now. I will keep you updated on what's going on over the weekend. I would like to put pics on here so as soon as I figure out how to do that I will! Talk at you all later!!

Waiting Sucks!

Well, still no sign of AF! Unfortunately, I have to wait 1 more week before I can call my RE. I am ready to scream!! Everywhere I turn there are either babies or pregnant ladies. I am very excited for my friends who are expecting, it's just kind of rough.. All I think about when I am around pregnant ladies or babies is how I should be about 16 weeks pregnant with my little one. And how unfair life can be sometimes. I know I will get pregnant again and I know this all just takes time. It just plain hurts. I never thought that 2 months later I would still be feeling this way and still be waiting. I don't know what I expected to happen. I guess I thought I would just start over again as soon as the bleeding from the m/c stopped. I wanted so much to be pregnant at Thanksgiving. At this point if I am I may not even know it much less be ready to announce it. Life doesn't always go as planned...

Sorry to be such a downer today. Lots of thoughts are swirling around in my head, not to mention lots of emotions. Sadness, frustration, happiness because I will get to see my out of town family soon, anxiousness, the list goes on. I think a lot of this has to do with the holidays coming up. I just pray this year is a happy year for everyone!!

In other news, my cat has been making me crazy lately! he has this thing he does where he just starts crying and banging on the bedroom door. Not cool when you're trying to sleep! He has been doing this for the past few nights. This morning I fed him and he still cried his little eyes out.. I finally just let him in the bedroom. He jumps on the bed and goes right to sleep! That little bugger! LOL. He usually only cries like that when he's hungry. I think he missed us because we were gone all day yesterday. Now he is asleep on the couch as I type this... Gotta love him!

Well kids, that's all for now. Hope everyone has a great rest of your weekend. Talk at you later! =)

A New President

As you all know, we have a new president!! For those who have been living under a rock with no internet access, it is Barack Obama! It is amazing to see history being made. It is awesome to think that my kids will be reading about this in school and I lived it! It is so wonderful that all the kids being born in this generation no matter race or creed will grow up knowing they can truly be whatever they want to be including being president of the USA!! Now we just need a female president.. Wouldn't that be so awesome!?

On the TTC front, I am still waiting on AF. I started getting cramps yesterday and today they are getting a little worse. I am hoping this is the beginning of AF.

In other news, it looks like there is a hurricane on the way sometime next week.. I am hoping it goes away and does not come here. I am not in the mood to deal with no electricity or clean water for a week. Boo. I'll keep you posted.

Well, that is all for tonight. Congrats to our new president! Talk at you all later! Hope everyone has a great night!

Monday, November 3, 2008

Very exciting!!

Well, halloween has come and gone. We got twice as many kids this year as we did last year for a grand total of 2! Where are these kids going?? My neighborhood is full of them! My next door neighbor has 2 little girls and they didn't even come by..

The reason I am so excited is that tomorrow is Election Day!!!! Hope everyone votes tomorrow if you haven't already. I am also so very sick of hearing all the attack ads for both candidates. I am ready for this political season to be over!

On the TTC front, I am on my last day of Prometrium and hoping AF comes soon. This Prometrium is really doing a number to my emotions. I was watching Dirty Dancing the other night and I started crying!! WTH?! I have seen that movie a million times and never cried before. LOL. I am also being very short with DH whether he deserves it or not.. Poor guy. I am just praying for success this coming cycle. I am hoping to be finding out the good news around the beginning of December.. The holidays will have so much more meaning this year if we are successful! BTW, this cycle was annovulatory.. Boo. I kind of expected it though.

Well, that is all for tonight. Talk at you all tomorrow. Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow. Remember, go vote!! =D

Thursday, October 30, 2008

It's Thursday!

Yaaay! As you all know tomorrow is Halloween. I am very excited to see if we get any kids coming over for candy. We bought a little bag of chocolates because last year we only got one kid! It was kind of sad... DH and I ended up eating the candy ourselves. So, I am hoping for a better turn out this year. So, does anyone have any rituals they do for Halloween? I used to dress up even if I was not going to a party but not anymore. Too much hassle especially when I have to work during the day. I do have a witch's hat that I will wear while passing out the candy. Now, where did I put that hat......

Also, this weekend is Fall Forward for all the clocks. I love that. It's like getting an extra hour of sleep! Yaay! The weather here in South Florida is getting chilly. The past few nights it was in the 40s and 50s overnight.. Burrrr! I know the people from up north are LOLing at me right now! Well, it was windy too! LOL. I have this super cute long sleeve shirt with little penguins and snowflakes on it that I bought last weekend. I was hoping to wear it this weekend but it is starting to warm up again.. Boo. I swear I am living in the wrong state! I would love to live up north where the seasons change and the weather wasn't so dang humid!

Well, that is all for tonight. Hope everyone has a Happy Halloween tomorrow!

There has to be a reason for all this....

There just has to!! So, I went to the RE this morning for yet another beta. Well, the physician assistant calls me back this afternoon to tell me that my beta is at 7!!! It is supposed to be less than 5. So, this means I can't start the Clomid this cycle after all. The RE put me on Prometrium to bring on AF. Once AF starts, I can start the Clomid on day 5. I am beyond frustrated at my body and at everything that has transpired in the last month and a half. I am just praying that everything works out this next cycle. I am trying to think positive and know that this is all happening for a reason.

In other news, I am so excited that Thanksgiving is almost here! I cannot wait to see my nieces, SIL and BIL. Also all the cousins!! It will be so much fun! I was hoping to be announcing that we were expecting but that isn't going to happen. Maybe Hannukah (Dec.20).... We will see.. Well, that is all for now. Hope everyone is having a good week. Talk at you later.

Weird Dreams

So lately I have been having weird dreams! Last night I had a dream that I was at my college graduation ceremony. When I got to my seat there was a letter from my grandma who had passed away. I started crying. The people around me kept asking what was wrong. I opened the letter and there was this long letter from her about how proud she was and how she was so excited to see me get this achievement. I just kept saying "But she died." Then my grandpa comes over and starts yelling at me about she's not dead. (A little history, both of my grandparents died when I was in high school.) Like I said, it was weird.. The fact that both of them were in the dream was even weirder. I haven't had a dream about them in a long time. Anyone know what it means??
On the TTC front, my beta on Monday was 21!! WTF?? I was totally expecting them to say "OK, it's down to zero. Start your Clomid!" I was really pissed when they said it was 21 and that I had to go back AGAIN for another check!! Aaaaah! This is torture! I am starting to think this will never end!!
Tomorrow night dh and I will be going to a Florida Panthers hockey game!! We haven't gone since like 2000! This should be interesting. GO PANTHERS!
Well, that is all for now. Talk at you all later! =)

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yaaay! Today it's my b-day today!! I am very excited! Although it hit me that in exactly 3 years I'll be 30!! Aaaah! LOL. Today my mom is taking my out so this will be interesting. last night my husband took me to Melting Pot and it was excellent! More delicious than I remember! Then this AM, I woke to a card sitting on my nightstand from dh. It was really cute. He got me a giftcard to Khols! Guess where I'm going today!? haha.
In other news, DH is getting a lot better. I am still changing his dressing every night but the abscess is healing very well. We also made our plans and bought the tickets for a triop we are taking at the beginning of 2009! We are going to see my BIL, SIL and our neices. I love going to visit them!! We will see them at Thanksgiving too. Woohoo!
On the TTC front, I am going back to the RE on Monday for another beta check and hopefully I'll get the green light to start this Clomid already!! I keep thinking about the script in my purse and praying it will still work this late in my cycle. My RE seems to think so.. Monday will be CD 17!

Well that is all for now! I'll keep you posted. Hope everyone has a Wonderful weekend!

That is my beta. I went to my RE to have my bloodwork and betas done on Monday and they told me it was 61. So that means I have to wait one more week to start my Clomid.. I just hope and pray it works this late in my cycle. My RE seems optimistic that it will. I am trying to stay optimistic. In other news, my b-day is in 4 days!! Yaay! LOL. Dh is taking me to Melting Pot!! Yummmmy! I LOVE that place. We only go like once a year or so because it's so expensive. Well, that's all for now. Hope everyone is enjoying their week.. Talk at you later. =)

It's Friday!!!!!

Yaaay! I love the weekends! haha. This weekend is a 3 day weekend. How awesome is that?! Not much else to really talk about. I am so ready for AF to be done! I am thinking it will be gone tomorrow or Sunday.
DH is getting better. He's still in pain every now and then but hopefully I can get him all better in time for baby-making! LOL. I'm kidding. I just hope he gets better soon. I just hate to see him in so much pain!
I have to figure out how to pimp this blog out! haha! If anyone can give me some tips on how to get a cool background, please let me know! Thanks!

Well, that is all for now. Like I said, not much to talk about. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Lots to talk about...

Well, I went to the RE on Tuesday and they did the U/S. Turns out the sac is gone. All that is left is placental tissue. That's a good thing. Hopefully that means AF will be gone soon and we will be TTC again. He didn't give me the script for Clomid as I had hoped. What he did say is that he wants to wait for my Betas to go back to negative. On Tuesday they were 248. So, I go back to the RE on Monday for another check of my betas. Things are moving along! Yaay!

On the next interesting thing. **Disclaimer** This is a little gross.
So, I'm trying to type this blog on Tuesday night when I hear my husband yelling for me to "Quick! Come look at this thing!!" I go running up there to see him standing there pointing at this huge pimple looking thing. The medical name for it is an abscess. Lovely. So, I decide we need to go to the urgent care center because the abscess is huge and the skin around it is red and hot. My first thought, infection!! So, we go and I tell him on the way not to worry, that they will numb it up before they cut it open. Well, we get there and the doc rips the band aid off and it pops right there. No pain meds, no numbing medicine, NOTHING! She just starts squeezing everything out of it. I have never seen him in so much pain in my whole life!! He was trying so hard not to scream or cry. Poor guy, he's now traumatized. =( Good news is they gave him antibiotics and pain meds. He is starting to feel better. What a day!
We go back tonight to make sure it is healing well and for them to change the dressing. This will be interesting. I told him to take some pain meds before we go.

To my fellow Jews out there, Happy New Year!

Well, that is all for now. See you all later. =)

What a Day!

OMG, I have never had such a crazy busy day like today! Work was insane! I saw like 14 patients just this morning! I usually only see about 6-7. Tomorrow should be much calmer..

So, I talked to my RE and he wants to see me tomorrow AM for an u/s. It's twofold. He wants to make sure everything has come out and wants to make sure my ovaries are ok too. If all goes well, I should be getting my script for Clomid! Yaaay!! I am soo glad to finally be back on track. This morning my temp took a huge nosedive! It went from 98.4 to 97.6!! Whoa! That's never happened to me before. I am thinking it was my hormones starting to regulate themselves. Before I got pregnant, my temps were in the 97s and after my BFP they were in the 98s. So, I guess I'm on my way back to normal.. We'll see. =)

Well, that is all for now... I'll let you all know how the U/S goes tomorrow.

Monday is coming...

Yuck! I hate Mondays. Good news is that I started bleeding on Friday!! Yaaay! No d&c for me after all! So now I am on CD 2. I am so happy this happened naturally. Now we can start focusing on moving forward and trying to get pregnant again. I must say the cramps are HORRIBLE!! The most painful I have ever experienced in my life!
Tomorrow I will be calling my RE and my GYN to tell them the good news. I cannot wait to get started on the Clomid and get this party started!! LOL.
So, my birthday is coming up! I am actually excited about this.. I love my b-day. It's my own personal holiday. Unfortunately it falls on a Saturday so I don't think I will be taking a day off. I already have Saturdays off... Oh well.
So I have this weird need to decorate for the upcoming holidays. Don't ask me why.. I never wanted to do this before. I went today to Kohl's and bought a very cute ceramic pumpkin that you put a tea light in. I think I will be going back for more stuff later. I just feel the need to get into the holiday spirit starting with Halloween... Haha!

Well, that is all for now. I will let you know what the docs say. Check back later in the week. =D
