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
