Wow, didn't realize it had been so long since I had made a post. Well a lot has happened since my last post. Not with me really, but with a bunch of others. I did start an etsy shop for my inspired temptations crafts. I might be working out a deal with my vinyl dealer to promote on her website. Those are 2 big accomplishments this past couple of weeks.
But I did make a little day trip to see my best guy friend from childhood get married yesterday. His wife was an absolutely lovely and beautiful bride. The wedding and reception were beautiful! We had to make the trek back after the reception though for Robbie to work today. Of all the Sundays to have to work! argh! Then he got to work and the guy that is left to work with him quit.
I have had a few friends find out they are pregnant in the past couple of weeks too. I am super happy for each of them. I pray they have a happy and healthy 9 months til each of their little ones get here!
The meal plan was kind of ruined this weekend so it is time to get back on the wagon and lose 13 lbs. That is the number Dr. Ke wanted to see. So, I have to make it happen! Not to mention I am FAT not PHAT plain old FAT. I am no longer wanting to be in pictures, so something has to be done :)
well I can't remember all of the words to that theme song, but its so true!
Two years ago today I was getting ready to marry my wonderful hubby! He texted me this morning and asked me what I was doing at that time 2 years ago.... I was like hummmmm... I was eating waffles with my best friend jessica getting ready to start getting ready for the best day of my life. He said, "yeah I was waking up yelling at Blake that we overslept." haha My wedding day was the most perfect day ever! All my friends thought that I had taken something cause I was so calm and collected, but really I was just so happy that nothing would have rustled my feathers that day. Everything was PERFECT! I had my dream job, was having my dream wedding, and was going to have the dream marriage! So far, nothing really has changed, except we want a family and that dream family isn't coming together quite like we had planned. But, seriously besides that I can't complain one bit. Sure we have our share of stupid little fights but who doesn't???
That was the good for today.... Now here's the bad
I didn't get with the RE soon enough... It's too late to start clomid this cycle. :( I had my little pity party for all of like 5 minutes. Oh well, it's not like by taking some pill for 5 days this cycle I will miraculously get pregnant. I mean if the time is right I should get pregnant anyway right? Isn't God the one in control here, not me??? I have to remind myself sometimes that ultimately if I am to be pregnant, God is the one to bestow the gift, not some pill. Having said that, GOD I know you are out there... I am jumping through hoops here, Please let this be our cycle!!!! If not we will try again next cycle... and maybe even use the 5 little pills :)
Side note... reading what I just wrote Clomid sounds like the magic beans in Jack and the Bean Stalk... lol Sorry I crack myself up sometimes when I think about things :) Guess that's how I have stayed sane. :) HAPPY MONDAY!
Well lets just say that the concert was GREAT even with the rain, soaking wet seats, and missing the first 2 songs ( toes and whatever it is... My favorite) But, I learned that my favorite would be replaced later in the show. We ran into so many people at the concert, it was amazing. ZBB puts on a great show! They even sang a song I so wish they would hurry up and release... ironic I want them to hurry, because it was talking about not being in a hurry anymore. It was really fitting of Robbie and my adventure in trying to become parents. It actually made me cry. But, below is the chorus to my current new favorite song (those who know me well know that I say every song is my favorite song, ha)
Let it go - ZBB
You keep your heart above your head and you eyes wide open So this world can't find a way to leave you cold And know you're not the only ship out on the ocean Save your strength for things that you can change Forgive the ones you can't You gotta let 'em go
Went to the Dietitian (lets call her FF for food friend) Friday (with a bit of a hang ova). It really went way better than I had imagined! I really was expecting the food Nazi, but she was really realistic and helpful. She didn't even talk about a certain number I need to lose by our next visit. She taught me what I needed to eat each meal and that I should be eating 3 snacks a day. Basically, I know now exactly what I need to eat and when, the hard part is going to be stopping the coke and beer. The beer not so hard, but the coke... I think I am seriously addicted to it. I know you are probably thinking oh that's easy just drink diet coke. I hate diet coke. So, I am going to try to get my caffeine from unsweetened tea... I can do that. I used to have migraines and so, I am afraid to completely stop caffeine. She advised the same. I really was amazed at the fact that I can totally eat at our favorite Mexican Joint and I can actually eat what I usually do... Just no beer. The beer rationale was 1 - empty calories and 2 - I am not supposed to drink on Metformin. I knew this I just was choosing to disregard. lol
I have made my grocery list and am ready to prove to FF that I am going to be her best patient! I have 4 weeks until I go back and I want to have some success stories for her.
On a completely different note, my mother in law is moving to Collierville! Super excited about that because she will be so much closer to us. She currently lives in Victoria, Ms which is right outside Byhalia and has a lot of land. So, we have been nudging her to move closer to us with less up keep. Well she bought a foreclosure and in bad shape cosmetically, so we helped her pick out colors; and with the help of his sister, brother, sister in law, and nephew we have totally spruced it up. Hopefully we will get all the finishing touches with paint and such done tomorrow. They are coming on Monday to replace all of the carpets. So, drum roll please.... woo hoo we will be moving her in next weekend!
Well today is the first day of a new outlook at this trying to conceive adventure... Starting tomorrow no more temping, charting, fretting, or obsessing. Tomorrow my sweet hubby and I will head downtown to stay at the Westin Hotel and head to Mud Island for the Zac Brown Band Concert. This is our early anniversary gift to each other! I am super excited!!!
I am going to call Dr. Ke's office to see what our plan of action is for this month. Hopefully he will give me some ovulating drugs... Although I am wondering how I will know if or when I am ovulating if I am not temping, but oh well. I am all about less stress! I have been charting on a site for the past 9 months and lets just say the ladies on there have gone a tad batty this month, so I am giving them the boot... I need no drama or crazy hormonal women getting my feathers all rustled. I have been reading and thinking to myself... Please God, tell me I haven't acted like this CRAZY women lol just kidding... well a little bit :)I have my dietitian's appointment on Friday too. Little scared but excited too. I am ready to make some changes out side of the TTC world. Well I guess that is all for now...
Ok so my sister was getting married yesterday so this week has been CRAZY!!!! But her wedding was beautiful! It was in my parents backyard and was absolutely perfect minus the heat!
At the time of my last post I was 13 DPO... at 16DPO and no positive or period I reevaluated my chart and decided that I had ovulated later (when I actually thought I was implanting) So here we are again I am 13 DPO and nothing... I have been taking Provera for the past 8 days so I guess I will get to start all over again in a few days. I really haven't had any symptoms of the beginning of a new cycle yet. I thought when I started taking Provera that it would be quicker... after reading on line it could be a week to 14 days before you start after finishing it. I am just want to be pregnant or be able to get out of this CRAZY cycle!!!
Well, a little about us.... We met in fall of 2006 thanks to some great friends. We got engaged in May of 2007 and got married in June of 2008. We have the cutest dog ever Zeke AKA Destruction Dog (that is his super dog name). Now we are desparately trying to have a sweet little bundle of joy to call our own. This is proving to not be as easy as we once thought it would be. I have been diagnosed with PCOS, and our insurance wont cover testing to see why we aren't getting prego due the the horrible diagnoses of INFERTILITY... now a bad word in our vocabulary!
