YAY!!!!!post #22 of 26712/3/11 at 11:22amShesaidboom-coul the follicles already be collapsing after your surge? That seems very strange... I'd call with your questions as soon as you can... Matbe they meant 2.5 &2.3??post #23 of 26712/3/11 at 2:00pmSkeemama, i forgot to welcome you before. I am so sorry for your losses and hope that we are ale to provide support on your way to a bfp!
Monkry, I knew it!,,,,, yaaaaaah:joy i am so happy!
Shesaidboom, how odd that the follies grew smaller and they seem a little small for having mature follies also. I hope you get some answers tomorrow but yah to the iui and moving into the 2ww!post #24 of 26712/3/11 at 4:35pm
Hey ladies!! I don't have much time because i'm still in the middle of the girls birthday parties but i had to just stop and say CONGRATS to MONKEYSCIENCE!!!! I am so happy for you!!! THat is just wonderful news!!! It just makes my day!
Hi to everyone who's joined us this month!!! I hate that you have had to join but i hope that we are all able to help each other in our journy together!!!
Well, time to get off DD's netbook and get back to the party talk to you soon!!!!post #25 of 26712/3/11 at 7:41pm
MamaBird - Glad you are enjoying hearing about SIL. I hope I'm not stepping on any toes with that. (If anyone is bugged by it, please PM me, I will stop talking about it here!) I'm sorry your first beta wasn't so reassuring, but glad the second one was! I'm hoping I can get my doctor to do some beta tests for me, but we'll see. Oh, and as far as anyone has told me... SIL is still pregnant. 36 weeks tomorrow!
Sourire - I've heard a lot of people have later O's with Femara. I ended up triggering somewhere around CD18, I think - not sure. But I had to leave town, otherwise I would have been monitored. But my OPKs never turned, so we just used the trigger. As far a SIL giving birth - I think I'm pretty excited for it. Of course, things have also changed since I'm hoping to be giving birth in the semi-near future, too! But when my brother first told me... I was in shock. It took WEEKS for it to really sink in. Their baby was only 7 or 8 months old when they told me, so I was caught completely off guard. I had no idea they were TTC, especially b/c at the end of her last pregnancy, SIL said she was never, ever having any more children! I definitely expected her to change her mind, but not that quickly. And the fact that it was twins... yeah, lots and lots of shock. I managed to be mostly happy about it until they announced they were both boys. I took that really, really hard. I know it is silly, but I was hoping since they got to have the first granddaughter, I would get to have the first grandson. It really, really hurt. Even though clearly it wasn't their fault. I worried for weeks, if not months, that they were going to "steal" the baby name dh and I had picked for our first son while we were still engaged. (And they still may - but from the list of names I've seen so far, it doesn't seem like their kind of name.) I'm back to being pretty okay/excited about it. We will see what happens when the boys come. But having my own pregnancy will definitely change my perspective. I know my brother and SIL will both be really, really happy for me, because they struggled with having their daughter, and they know that it's been tough on me. Hope your second meeting with baby went well!
Gemmine - Well, I guess I don't need more doctor recommendations for now! But I hope that it works out well for you, and you can get something good going this cycle!
shesaidboom - I'm doubly confused by your numbers... should they be cm instead of mm? Because I know that my RE was measuring my lead follicle at 14 mm + (1.4 cm) when I was doing Femara. Oh, wait... I just saw you did write cm at the bottom of your post. Okay, way more sense-making now! But was your lining really .7 mm, or .7 cm? Because .7 mm would not be really anything at all! Either way, it is weird they measured your follicles as shrinking. I'm guessing some of that has to do with who's doing the measuring? But they still seem awfully small for you to be surging. I hope your RE can give you more answers, and that this some how turns itself into a BFP!
AFM, thank you for all the congrats! It still is not really sinking in with dh and I at all, even though we've been talking about it. Pregnancy is just something that happens to other people, y'know? I definitely do not feel like the host for an alien life form right now. ;) OTOH, I've been having sort of crampy/sick feelings, which a.) are unpleasant, and isn't it really dang early for that anyway??, and b.) are worrisomely reminiscent of menstrual cramps. I haven't told dh the b part - I don't want him to worry. He knows I've been feeling off, but I haven't said it feels like menstrual cramps. Seriously, this can't just be some cruel cosmic joke, can it? I have so many questions and things to figure out. I really want to get a couple of betas done, because I don't intend to have an ultrasound except at 20 weeks, unless there's some indication something is wrong, so I want to know a little more of what's going on! But I'm not really established with a care provider right now, so I'm not sure. And I have no clue who I want to be my provider, or even how soon I should try to see them. Siiiiiiiiiighhhh. Good problems to have, but still... so not prepared for these things to go from being academic questions to things of real importance!
Also, I thought I'd give you ladies a peek at my pink lines... I swear, it is darker IRL than it is in the picture, but still... you can't miss it!
Oh, due date (please, oh, please stick little bean!)... 14 August 2012.post #26 of 26712/3/11 at 8:40pm
Monkey, CONGRATULATIONS! I love coming back to wonderful news like that. :) Will definitely be thinking sticky bean thoughts for you.
CBAA was so sad to see your "Negative" post as I was going back through the threads to catch up. I'm glad to see you're feeling a little better, and hopefully this Christmas will bring a long-awaited present. :)
Gemmine and Sourire, glad to see you both (although, not glad that circumstances have us all in this thread)! I was on the TTC boards with you at one point. It's fun to root for others I remember from that long ago. Oh, and Sourire, I always read your name like "Soiree" but just now realized it's probably really "Sour Ire." Lol!
So AFM, sorry I've been a bit MIA for the past few weeks. I've been waiting and waiting for something to happen, but nothing really has, so I've been trying to distract myself from TTC as much as possible. It hasn't really worked (anyone else thing about pregnancy EVERY SINGLE TIME that you go to the bathroom? Arg.), and I realized I wanted to catch up with everyone, so here I am.
We had a lovely Thanksgiving, doing the perfect amount of fun stuff and "nothing" stuff. I really want to make this Christmas a fun one, so I've been trying to make lots of holiday plans (even little ones). So far it's been a nice way to take my mind off of things.
One thing I'm keeping an eye on--my temps have been up the past two days (didn't take it this morning because I slept in. Saturdays always do that to me). I also had some EWCM about eight days ago, and we actually BD'd that day, so...maybe, just maybe, something is happening?) I know it's pretty slim, but even the higher temps have me cautiously optimistic (that I even ovulated would be fabulous). Am I crazy? Was it just that we've had the heat up a little more the past few nights? Who knows... http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/32b88bpost #27 of 26712/4/11 at 6:05am
YAYYYYY, Monkey! Congratulations -- I had a feeling about you. :-)
Our due dates are just a week apart -- mine is approximately 8/6/12. About the cramping...I had menstrual like cramping all last week and my RE, Obgyn, and acupuncturist assured me that the early cramps and pms-like feelings are completely normal. In fact, when I mentioned to the RE that I had no pregnancy symptoms, she said "You probably have menstrual-like cramps, right? Don't let that worry you, it's completely normal." My dh thinks it's funny that I don't remember all of this from when I was pregnant with dd (7yo)...apparently *he* remembers. I can barely remember what happened last year -- 8 years ago? No way. Anyhoo, the cramping has now stopped and I miss it. ;-)
Chicajones - yes, I did (and still do) think about pregnancy every time I go to the bathroom. A year and a half of staring at tp, not having any idea what I'm looking for. I could make a career out of it. I hope this is your month - sounds like good timing.
Last night I had a dream during which I started bleeding, which was obviously very upsetting. I also had a dream that the Badgers lost to the Spartans (I fell asleep during the game last night), which was also upsetting, in a much less relevant way. I woke up to learn that the Badgers won! I take that to invalidate my other dream. :-)
Happy Sunday, everyone. This is the month!post #28 of 26712/4/11 at 7:36ampost #29 of 26712/4/11 at 7:48am
Well my 2nd meeting with my nephew went well. It helped that his hair has gotten lighter since he was born so I don't have as much of a tendency to think of him as the baby I was supposed to have. I even held him for a while!
Thanks for all the comments about my screen name. The word sourire means "smile" in French, which is something I need to do more of. My psychologist gave me a trick for when I am having a bad day... she says I should try to smile as much as possible even when I am feeling down, because the act of smiling sends a message to your brain that you are happy, and eventually you do feel better. The advice has worked extremely well for me so far!
I just had a thought the other day... it's kind of ironic that I am planning to give birth at home naturally with no medications, but now that I am starting IUI chances are that I will get pregnant in a medical setting with a ton of drugs!
deborah - good luck with your concert. What instrument do you play? When I was younger I was in a marching band and a concert band and I really loved it... I played trumpet, french horn and mellophone.
monkey - Congrats on the BFP!!! It's especially wonderful because now you will be able to be 100% happy about the birth of your nephews. Since I haven't been around lately, could you tell me what treatments/medications you were on in your BFP cycle?
chicajones - Those temps of yours are looking pretty darn high... it looks pretty likely to me that you O'ed! That must be excruciating for you to wait so long to O every cycle, it's so unfair for you!!! I hope you managed to catch the egg this cycle, or least that your next cycle is more normal. Do you have a plan for any meds on your next cycle?post #30 of 26712/4/11 at 9:18am
Sourire- I use my voice. It was a choral concert. Also, it was last night. I played piano and clarinet as a kid though. Monkey- It is totally normal to have menstrual like cramps. The only time to worry about the cramping is if you have bright red or bright pink blood. My implantation cramping felt like menstrual cramps, but slightly more severe.

Oh, WOW! I missed a lot. This is gonna be a long one! Grab a cup of tea!
I think I got everyone's updates, but please let me know if I missed anything. BTW, I think a few of you might have charts not linked here (um, like me) - if you want, let me know your chart link and I'll put it in with the little chart symbol. Because chart stalking is a community affair!
Well, I am always sad that people have to find their way here, but I am glad that we have such an awesome group of women. Hiya Sourire, Gemmine, skeemama, and chicajones! (And you too, Blueyezz!) I was excited to see this thread light up...before clicking I immediately wished for good news...aaaand....
Monkey !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited I am dancing in my desk chair. I'm not kidding, it's totally embarrasing. That really is a bFATp! Is there any way you could have a previous doc you've worked with and liked call in a script for a serial quant beta to a walk-in lab (like Quest)? Sending tons of sticky thoughts your way...for a sticky bean and little sticky fingers marking up your walls next year!
Now I want to say a heartful thank-you for everyone for sharing your trevails/tips for keeping the baby-making duties fun. It is good to feel less alone in it and know we are not the only couple who's had to deal with that! That part of our relationship has always been so fun and good that I feel extra sad that it's become, well, not always fun and good. I feel bad, I wanted to clarify that DH and I do talk about babies/babymaking stuff all the time. We agreed at one point, when it became clear that this was going to be a long-haul experience, that I would leave it to him to ask about non-essntial details. And the truth is, he always asks and wants to know. Even if he doesn't, he knows me so well he can tell what is going on just by looking at me! I am one of those who feels comfortable having a ton of info/knowledge, whereas he gets overwhelmed by that. So, for him, and also for my own sake, I try to concentrate on other things when I can. And sometimes that seems like a gargantuan effort in and of itself...
Sourire, how do you feel so far about Femera vs. Clomid? I'm so glad to hear you have a plan for January too, although I hope you won't need it. (Are you a Plan Person? I am, as you might have guessed, totally a Plan Person.)
shesaidboom, I wonder if the "shrinkage" is just measurement error. You'd think it would be an exact science (!) but IME it's really not. Sometimes my RE (who does my u/s) will want to re-measure and often she's been off my a mm (though not more than that), both for follicle size and endometrial thickness. You're doing Femera too, right? Did your RE tell you what she wanted/expected to see follicle-wise?
Brichole, I hope you are thoroughly partied! Congratulations! I for one am super excited for the netbook. The more Brichole we get, the better! :)
chica, I hear you on that perfect balance between doing/not doing! I think of it like that too. I couldn't get your chart link to work but higher temps sound promising. I also know what it's like to just pray for a chance (i.e., ovulation) and am hoping that the EW day was it for you!
cbaa, oh wow, your Clomid LP symptoms sound just like mine...except that I've been unusually sleepy. (Which is fine, I tend to be an insomniac and often have trouble falling asleep.) I'm glad you too have a solid plan (you sound like a Plan Person...am I right?!) but I really hope that you get a BFP on the third Clomid round instead. What CD are you now? How is the cycle going?
AFM, I am being unusually blase this time around. Not even really charting. I'm very certain I o'ed overnight on Wed. night (so, early Thurs.) and am not quite sure how to count that...is Wed. or Thurs. o day? Going with 36 hours post-trigger it would have been 3am. I started progesterone yesterday and should really test to confirm that trigger is out of my system...haven't had the courage to do that yet because I don't want to see the false positive. It feels like before o I still have a chance, still have things I could do...but in the 2ww, I'm just waiting to be devastated and I can't do anything about it. I don't know why I'm so down for this cycle, since we got 2 perfectly-timed BDs in and the third failed one would have been 12+ hours after o anyway. Maybe it's Clomid moodiness, I don't know.post #32 of 26712/4/11 at 10:35am
Okay, so apparently there is some margin of error that could account for the differences in size of the follicles. They measured at 2.2cm and 1.8cm today, which is much better. I was so worried yesterday and this morning that the follicles would be too small to really be mature and we'd run into issues. The early surge also threw me off a bit. I'm glad this cycle isn't a guaranteed bust.
Monkey - PINK LINES!!! So exciting :) I've always heard the early cramping feelings are completely normal. Definitely talk to your RE if you're worried though.
Sorry for the confusion! I keep writing them/reading them written in different ways so I mess up the cm and mm signs. I think the lining should be .7cm as well.
Sourire - I had that same thought about birth and conception. I'm hoping to have a natural birth, probably at home, once we do conceive. If all goes well, our birth may be natural but our conception was completely medicated. Weird how it works that way!
gozal - Yep, I'm on my second cycle of Femara. My RE didn't say much about what we should see follicle-wise, just that we do get a mature follicle. The RE who did the procedure (mine doesn't do procedures, just consults/prescriptions and such) said it was probably a margin of error thing, especially since it is at a different clinic. Today they were definitely mature size so it should be okay.
I'm sorry you're feeling so down this time around. I totally get it. The 2ww is a hard place to be. I'm very hopeful for you and have everything crossed! Do you have a test booked?post #33 of 26712/4/11 at 11:55am
Hi everyone, I'd like to join this thread. I'm at the very end (CD31, 2 bfns) of my first clomid cycle. I didn't feel unusually moody, but I am on SSRIs so that probably helps. I am waiting to call my RE and find out results of a bunch of tests including my first CD21. My RE did tell me that my cycles are a little long and now I have a feeling this one is going to be extra long. I have a cyst that I'm not sure if it's screwing with my hormones or not. I was told it could've been a follicle but was probably a cyst. I was just diagnosed with PCOS even though I've had two other docs tell me I didn't have it.
It's been a really rough month emotionally because my coworker just got pregnant after trying for two months and was really insensitive about it. She complained to me about not getting pregnant on her honeymoon in October. I am overall happy to be with my RE now and feeling more hopeful than a month ago about our chances.
I just keep telling myself that this is not a race and I can't expect people to be sensitive to my feelings.
I'm thinking stress is lengthening my cycle this month, blah. Want to get the ball rolling this cycle, think she'll up my clomid dose and monitor carefully.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you.post #34 of 26712/4/11 at 3:09pmWelcome bootsvalentine!! I'm glad you like your RE and that they're working hard to get your bfp! I hate that post-bfn feeling of just wanting af to start so you can try again.
Gozal- ugh i feel sleepy all day but im up all night! Its getting better cuz now im on day 2 of clomid... I'm def a planner, IF is very inconvenient for me, my whole adult (young adult) life has been all on schedule & IF just wont follow suit. When I think that way I try also to remind myself how rich with blessings my life has been & be grateful. Your BD timing sounds great even without that third one, also i think thursday counts as o day, if its anything like af timing, if its after 3pm, its the next day! I'm feeling hopeful for you... Are you eatibg your pineapple core? I just bought 2 so they can ripen... Im going to eat it for 7 days instead of just 5 this time.
Sourire & shesaidboom- i think for me IF has given me so much time to learn about birth and parenting that natural birth just seems like my destiny... But i too think about so much medicine an science going in and hen none comng out.... Guess we feel the need to balance our babies exposure!
Shesaid boom- those #'s sound much better! Do you bd on your own too or just back to back iui? Did they do your estrogen today too? My RE isnt there for iui and they dont even recheck follicles or anything, just wham bam inject ya mam...
Chica- that does look like o! I hope you caught that egg!
Afm- cd4 ( or cd5 according to my re) just took my 2nd clomid... Relaxing & having some red clover tea, looking at the christmas tree(which is still not decorated-busy weekend) . We had a huge extended family christmas party today, luckily nobody inquired as to my fertility status , im pretty sure my cousin spread the word, which i dont know whether to feel violated by or relieved... I guess i'm more relieved...post #35 of 26712/4/11 at 5:14pm
I just love starting the month off with good news. Monkey, I'm still over the moon for you!! Cramping is totally normal. It's just the initial placental growth. How else are you feeling? I'm so happy for your DH and you!
Bootsvalentine, welcome and I hope that we can be comforting and helpful to you on your journey to a BFP! We have a looooong history of being exposed to people who say the most mindless, insensitive things. It's amazing how self absorbed people are. I don't think that they mean to be that way but they just don't think about the fact that other people could be suffering from infertility. The other thing that we talk a lot about is Facebook and how horrifying that medium is when you're TTCing as well. we are happy to provide a safe haven for you to vent! As for your cycle, is it long even on clomid? Are you monitored while on clomid to check out the process of the growing follies?
Cbaa, I so understand what you mean about how infertility doesn't fit into your schedule. I felt the same way too. I'm glad you're already on day 2 of clomid! Any side effects or is it pretty minor this month again?
Shesaidboom, Yah for a successful IUI! I agree with cbaa, the numbers seem much better. I remember when my husband went with me to an appointment where they counted follies and sized them. he made a comment about how it was so subjective...a move of the wand would change the size drastically! When are you going to test? are you getting a beta done?
Gozal, it is tough to be optimistic month after month, especially after such a long journey. Keep up the hope and know that we are all rooting for you!!
Sourire, I'm glad that you had a good visit with your nephew and even got to hold him! It's the first step in the healing process and I think that the way you felt is completely normal...I initially felt jealous of my nephew as well just because I felt like I should have been able to get pregnant the same time as my SIL since we started TTCing around the same time. It is like Bootsvalentine says...even though it's not a race, it can sure feel like it sometimes!
Mammabird, isn't it funny how we miss those pregnancy symptoms when they aren't there? I still have minor panic attacks when my breasts don't feel as sore. Admittedly, I would prefer to not have the nausea and fatigue but I'm sure I'll somehow miss them as well because they at least give me some comfort that everything is ok in there, during the time I'm waiting in between visits!
How are you feeling otherwise?
Chicajones, I think you ovulated as well! welcome to the 2ww! When do you plan on testing?post #36 of 26712/4/11 at 7:55pm
Hi ladies - I'm back after taking a break from everything. New job and new insurance now, brought me my first RE about 6 weeks ago. Love her! Finally, someone who cares and is invested in trying to find out what's going on and making a plan that's right for me without an agenda of her own other than to help me.
Spent the last month giving lots of blood for various tests plus an HSG (not fun) - all results normal. Still waiting for dh's kareotyping results. So, unexplained losses - only thing dr can pinpoint is my shorter LP. She suggested trying Clomid and progesterone to see if that helps. dh and I are into the natural lifestyle, so we'd like to try with something that's minimal intervention so this sounded good. (Also want to look into acupuncture).
Anyway, everything kind of happened fast - She wanted to know my answer by the end of last week so we could plan our steps - she wanted an u/s on cd 3 to make sure that there's no cysts and everything looks clear, clomid cd 3-7, use opk's, timed intercourse, progesterone 2 days after o. That was the plan. Then I got my period on cd25 - so unusual for me - never this short! However, i do work in a community of all women and my close co-worker also started her period on Fri. Thanks. So the pressure was on to decide to start this cycle - we decided to go for it.
This morning I went in for the u/s with a diff dr. & my dr's fellow (weekend shifts) and they found something weird. There's some large (8cm) cycstic body of fluid in my uterus. Not an ovarian cyst. Not seemingly attached to anything. They don't know what it was - they were asking me questions like if I've had surgery or an infection (no). I've had u/s done after each loss and there wasn't anything there. I'm trying not to freak out.
I spoke with my dr. and she wants me to come in this week so she can do it again herself. She also wants to have an ob/oncologist there. She also mentioned a possible laparoscopy (this was more of an off-hand remark).
So now I have no idea what to think. Here I was coming to terms with trying this cycle after avoiding since April and now I feel totally shocked and I don't even know what.
Ok, I'm done now. sighpost #37 of 26712/4/11 at 8:58pm
It's really late, and I have a super long drive tomorrow, but I wanted to pop in fast to say:
THANK YOU so much to those of you who told me cramping is normal. Otherwise I think I would have spent last night and today worrying myself silly. (I stupidly worried myself by using an OPK as a pregnancy test this morning, and then freaking out when it wasn't instantly positive. Seems they aren't kidding about giving those things at least 5 minutes!)
Thank you also for being so excited with me! You're the only people besides dh who know, and I'm very much a "teller" - I don't like secrets, I just want to tell everyone! But I'm holding off till Christmas, since that means the highest risk time will have passed, and it can be a fun Christmas surprise!
Also, this was a totally unmedicated cycle - all I've been doing is taking prenatals. But I did start the South Beach Diet, and dropped 7 lbs. I think between the lost weight (almost 5% body weight for me - enough to make a difference, according to my OB/GYN) and the improved blood sugar stuff, that may have helped. Also OPKs and PreSeed and using my DivaCup after intercourse.
Okay, not that short - I will be back later in the week to do personals. I'll be in the car all day tomorrow and hate posting from my phone, so probably nothing then. I am hoping and praying for all of you ladies - it would be great to have friends in the August DDC!post #38 of 26712/5/11 at 6:00am
HI LADIES!!! I have been trying to recover from this past weekend!!! I am still so super excited that Monkeyscience got a BFP!!! That is so wonderful!! See i told you you didn't need to worry about those BCPs lol.
Sourire: I hope you are doing well. I have been chart stalking you over on the One Thread and been hoping that you are doing okay. I've missed hearing from you so it's good to have you back!! I really hope that you get your BFP soon!!!!
Renavoo: I hope that you and the twinkles are doing good!!! Did you have a doctor's appointment this past week or is it this week?
Gozal: My trigger was out of my system by 5DP trigger....sooooo i would at least wait that long before testing. I was one who tested EVERYDAY from the day i took the trigger until the day i got my real BFP lol. It was really depressing to get a BFN for 4 days before getting another BFP on 10DP trigger!!!
I really hope that this cycle is your cycle!!!! :)
mammabird: I totally get you on not remembering stuff from the first pregnancy!!! My girls are 7 years and 8 days apart (i was due on DD#1's birthday actually) and i COMPLETELY forgot EVERYTHING from my first pregnancy lol. I hope that your pregnancy keeps going well!!
Cbaa: I hope that this cycle is better to you!!! I am sitting at about CD3 or 4 also and i'm sooooo ready to be able to get everything started!!! I know that this is my last chance to concieve until my surgery date so here goes nothing for this month!!!
Bootsvalentine: Welcome!! I hope that your stay is short, but trust me there are sooooo many wonderful ladies here to talk to and compare notes with!! It's also a nice place to come and just vent away when ANYTHING comes up in your life....we don't mind the topic going away from IF either :) I'm really good at going off topic lol.
Shesaidboom: Here's wishing you the best and that your eggie was caught this month and implants nicely!!! :) I really hope you are able to get your BFP this month!!! :) That would be a WONDERFUL Christmas Present!!!
Wendlynn: Welcome back! I hate that you are having to come back but at least you have better prospects these days!!! :) I hope that all is going well!!!
Deborah: How are you doing? I hope that your concert went well this weekend!!! I use to be in chorus and i played the flute and piccolo growing up :) I miss those days!! I still sing to my girls but i don't usually sing any other time unless we are at a big party with friends and we are doing Karaoke lol.
To anyone else who i missed...HI!!! I am trying to catch up with all of the posts with being gone...but have no fear lol the netbook will keep me up to date with everyone now lol.
AFM: I am on CD4 and it's rather boring right now lol. Depending on how long this cycle goes this might be my last cycle to be able to try before my surgery in February!!! I am trying to be excited about this cycle but with all of the other failed cycles this year it makes me kinda depressed!!! I do have 2 wonderful things to be happy for though. DD#2 turns 1 TOMORROW!!! And DD#1 turns 8 on the 14th!! So at least i have two blessings already. I just feel like there is one more out there for me but my family is trying to get DH to go ahead and have his surgery done. I'm sooooo frustrated!! I just wish my family would let me live my life and stop trying to interfear!!! ANYWAYS, I need to get to working some lol...it's been a long weekend and I have a lot to get done!! I will talk to you ladies soon!!!
PS: DH gave me my christmas present early!!! I have a new Kindle FIRE!!! YAY!!!! SUPER EXCITED!!!!post #39 of 26712/5/11 at 6:46am
Brichole- The concert went very well. Much better than I think any of expected, for that matter. My Sunday on the other hand, not so wonderful. Worst all-day sickness day so far. I didn't get an assignment done that is worth 100 points and I don't know whether I'll get credit. I'd still have a high B+ and could get it up to an A- if I do things perfectly for the last two weeks, but I'm kicking myself for not starting it earlier and/or notifying the professor earlier. This is the same professor who kept our regular assignments the week of the midterm which was also the week of Thanksgiving. I am still a bit resentful about that, but those are two separate issues.post #40 of 26712/5/11 at 7:12am
