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!

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

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!!!!

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!

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
