TTC Update

Well we did get our BFP but from the very beginning it didn't look good. We had low betas that doubled and the day they caught up i started spotting. I had a ridiculous amount of blood draws and ultrasounds and they could never find the pregnancy for sure. I had two trips to the ER, one ambulance ride, and was admitted once. They think they found it outside of the uterus and outside of the tube but were never sure. We saw a lot of different doctors and I swear got a different answer from each one (one night in the ER they said i was bleeding internally and could have the surgery or could just go home and wait and see) I chose to go home and the next dr i spoke to said the other one was wrong it wasn't blood just fluid and i was fine (thank god i didn't opt for the surgery!!!!). It was a long and hard roller coaster ride but finally the pain has for the most part stopped, my beta levels are dropping like they are supposed to, and now begins the waiting game until we can try again (three months i think because we had to get the Metho shot to terminate the pregnancy).

The County Fair

We went to the county fair this weekend and the kids had a great time!!! They rode lots of rides and ate funnel cakes and played a few games.

Back by popular demand this year the pig races.

They have the machine where you rent and return them RIGHT when you walk in the main door we always go in. Normally she tries to push them and get in, but you can't get them off the rails unless you pay. Someone tried to return this to the wrong machine, so when we walked into the mall and she ran up to this one and pushed it and it actually came out so they just climbed in and we had to push the silly thing around all night - such goofballs!!!

4 follies, 2.5 mil swimmers, estradiol over 2000
We are currently 1 DPO, TWW = YUCK!!!!

C.lomid Bites!!!!

So i have started taking C.lomid and am getting almost every side effect on the list. Yesterday i was nauseous, had horrible headaches, and was dizzy all day!!!! Today i've had the pleasure of hot flashes thrown in, although the headaches weren't bad. And the moodiness - lets just say i feel sorry for anyone who has been in contact with me the past couple of days:P

And because what's a post without a picture:) My childhood friend just (well 10 weeks ago) welcomed her son Ben into the world, and i was lucky enough to take a trip down to NC to meet him!!!

Ciara's Turn

Ciara insists that when i proposed to her that i told her my plan was that we were going to get married and then have a baby and she could get on board or get out.....while i do NOT remember that conversation being a part of my proposal I do remember that being my "plan". When DC passed legal marriage Ciara said it was her turn to tell me that now she wanted to get married and have a baby, soooo.......

The ceremony was just her sister, my parents and the kids and it was perfect!!!! We did it on our three year anniversary and true to my word we followed up with our first fertility consultation for child number THREE yesterday. It was the fastest consult ever...

Dr - Oh i vaguely remember you...You're skinny thats what made me remember you
Me - yeah still skinny
Dr - let me look over your files......
So it worked last time
Us - yeah, we have a two year old girl now
Dr - ok lets do the same thing
The End
