I'm Thankful

It's been a rough almost 15 months since this whole "let's have a baby" journey began. My journey still isn't over, and in fact, it really hasn't started yet. However, despite my disappointments and set backs, I truly am thankful for a lot of things in my life.
I'm thankful for....
* My husband who is the most wonderful man and my best friend.
* My family who have been very supportive of everything in my life.
* My nephew, Aiden. They way he notices new things every day makes you realize that the small things in life are truly important.
* My niece, Emily. I truly believe that she will teach us all a valuable lesson.
* My friends who's support has been amazing and encouraging.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. I hope you have at least this many reasons to be thankful.

A Quick Congrats

Nothing new to report on my front. I'm on CD 12 now and finally (I think) quit spotting. I had a more substantial (well, more than the whole 2 days in Sept.) period this month of 4 days that were a little more period like and less spotting like. And then I spotted for about 5 days after that... I still haven't seen my OB yet. Work and life have been a little busy lately. I really need to call his office this week and reschedule the appointment that he had to cancel.

I did, however, want to say "congrats" to my friend, Lydia. She's pregnant after over a year of trying! Yay for her! I'm truly happy for her (with no green eyed monster in sight). I think it's because I know she's struggled too. It gives me hope.

Also, I wanted to post a picture of my niece, Emily. She's 6 weeks old today! Wow! I took this picture last week (at 5 weeks). Isn't she just perfect?!

This is my response to Janette's challenge. You are supposed to post the 4th picture from the 4th album on your computer. Here ya go. It's a picture from my little brother's football game.

A Short Note to my Uterus

Dear Uterus (and Ovaries)
While I am thrilled that you finally decided to let me have a period on Wednesday after 60 days, why on earth did you wait so long?! I had pretty much written you off again, and then you do something right. You're still not getting with the program... I guess the mention of birth control scared you straight again.. for a little while. I'm still going to see a fertility specialist after I see the OB and I'm still going to do the Clomid. You just can't be trusted...

I've Decided

I've made a decision. I'm going to do another cycle of birth control starting this Sunday. A while back, when my OB originally wrote for the BCP, he told me I would most likely have to do 3 months in a row before a RE would start me on Clomid. Since I am most definitely not pregnant, I'm going to go ahead and get things rolling along. I still need to make my rescheduled appointment with my OB and get my referral to the RE, but from what I understand, it sometimes takes a while to get in to see the RE. This way, I'll be ahead of the game. I'm just so frustrated and annoyed with my body at this point. Sigh...

Change of Plans

Well, I survived the morning with my grandmother. And I didn't stab myself in the eye! However, my OB's office called around 12:30 to cancel my appointment for this afternoon. :P He was going to be out delivering babies this afternoon (of all things). I don't have my new work schedule, so I wasn't able to immediately reschedule. I'm hoping he can get me in pretty quickly so we don't drag this out.
Just an update, I'm on CD 49 now and still no signs of a cycle... sigh.

I think I may just poke myself in the eye. It would be much more entertaining that what I have to deal with tomorrow. First, I have to take my grandmother to the doctor at 9am. I'm not usually aware that there is a 9am, let alone being up in time to be somewhere. Also, my GM (God Bless her) drives me batty. I love her, but she's kind of passive/aggressive and doesn't seem to think before she speaks sometimes. I'm only doing this as a favor to my mom, and she owes me big. After those fun festivities, I get to go do the oh so great annual visit with my OB/GYN. He's great and he's fast, but I don't enjoy getting my insides poked at. The only reason I'm looking forward to seeing him is so that I can get a referral to a specialist and hopefully get this pregnancy show on the road sometime before I'm 30.
