Not a good day to read blogs

I have read 3 of my infertility blogs this morning and they are all, you guessed it, pregnant. Now while I am super ecstatic for all of these ladies I didn't need to read them all in the same morning. Now I feel even more depressed about my own short comings.

I do want to say CONGRATULATIONS to all of you who got your BFP's! I hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months ahead of you.

You want me to do what where?

More semen analysis drama, why can't this one thing be easy? After battling with the insurance company for months on getting dh's insurance card I find out that the only lab that can do the SA is in Lutz, Florida. Outside of our half hour time limit, you know what that means, he has to do it there instead. Great, just great. How embarrasing for my dh. I told him I would take off work and go with him but he said I didn't need to do that. I think I do. ugh why can't we just get a break once.


Attain IVF

I came across this ad from google today about how to attain IVF treatments for an economical cost.

I am a little skeptical of this, have any of you done this program or heard of it? Apparently you get 6 cycles of IVF at a discounted price and if it doesn't work your money is refunded. In order to get more information you have to fill out a form, I don't want to give my information if it is a scam. Jimmy and I talked a little about it last night and he wants to exhaust all our options before going to adoption. So that means we will be saving our money for either IUI's or IVF. Looks like no more shopping for me. Bummer! Hopefully he can get into the lab soon to get his sa done and we will know where we stand on the infertility road.

Let me know if you have heard of AttainIVF...

Quick hello

I just wanted to say a quick hello to all my followers. I know I haven't updated in a few days. Nothing is going on right now, I am waiting to O. Should be in the next 3 days and then the fun begins. Not really, I hate waiting. I will post again in a few days with another update. Right now things are pretty boring, which is good because that means less stress.

If you remember the battle with the insurance company and dh's S.A. well guess what arrived in the mail today. His insurance card!!!! After almost 4 months it finally came. Now he can get the SA done. Whew! Things are looking up...


Round 2!

Dh and I had a talk last night and he said we need to "Get ur Done", his words not mine. I guess Larry the Cable Guy is our TTC muse. He thinks we should go ahead and do another round of clomid, 50 mg, this month to give it another shot and not take a break. So I called my doctor and they called in a prescription for me. I will start taking it tonight until cd 9. Lets pray that this time it works.

In the meantime I am going to see my cousin this weekend, who is due in September. We had a little scare last night because she started to go into labor but they gave her a shot to stop the contractions. I would have really liked to meet my new cousin but if she isn't ready I don't want her to come. Please say a prayer for her.

Unwanted arrivals...

Yep the Bitch showed, early too. WTF!!! Sorry I am a little bitter today since she came a day early and I didn't even get the chance to not test until I was late. Dang it. Not to mention it was the night I had to go to Babies R Us to buy a shower gift and see a gazillion preggo ladies in there all joyous and crap. Just for all that I parked in expectant mother's parking. What? If you hope for it doesn't it count. I felt the need for a little compensation for all this infertility crap. Sorry I am a little angry today, maybe tomorrow will be better. Now I have to go and finish my glass of wine.

Like giving crack to an addict

Thank you to all the girls on BZ who have attempted to distract me from POAS. However, one of you, who shall remain nameless, have tempted me with a coupon for wal-mart answer brand tests. I am supposed to be refraining from testing for the next 3 days but how can I when I have 10 tests in my cabinet, yes I said 1o! and there is a sale at Wal-mart. Ugh the agony. How will I make it 72 more hours!!! And the clock starts now...

O' symptoms where art thou?

I am now 8 dpo and have no symptoms of impending pms or pregnancy. My girls aren't sore at all, no changes. Usually they are too sore to wear a bra or to even sleep on. Why no pain? Everyone I have talked to that has been on Clomid get sore boobs immediately after O'ing. I really hope this is a good sign. Most months I would swear up and down that I was pregnant, fatigue, frequent urination, sore boobs, etc. You get the picture, I'm obsessive. Not this month - nothing! Well, that is all I have to report because there is nothing to report about. This is so strange, I can't even obsess over the little twinges or pains because there isn't any. It just can't ever be easy, can it? Just when I think I have it all figured out, it changes. Sheesh!

I love my sister!!!

I came home from work yesterday and she had set up a romantic dinner table with champagne and chocolate cake for our anniversary dinner.

Here is the birds eye view of the table with candles, champagne, and cake
She even put rose petals on the table. How sweet!

DH and I cooked fresh snapper, that he caught fishing, with english peas and oven roasted potatoes. It was such a good meal, yum yum! We make such a good team.

I can't believe it has been 4 years, time flies when your having fun.

Happy Anniversary to me and DH!

Today is our 4th wedding anniversary. I can't believe it has already been 4 years since we said 'I do'. How time flies! Four years ago today we pledged our lives together in good times and in bad, for richer or for poorer and in-sickness and in-health. Little did we know that there have been more bad times than we bargained for, because of infertility, we will probaly be poorer after all this infertility crap, and if I could just get pregnant we could tackle the sickness part (morning that is). Tonight we plan on cooking snapper, that he caught fishing yesterday, watching our wedding videos and looking at our albums. My parents suprised us at our wedding by purchasing disposable DVD camcorders and passing them around. So we have 4 different DVD's of people taking the cameras around giving shout outs and such. It was so thoughtful and wonderful. I am really looking forward to taking a trip down memory lane tonight.
