Ahhhh, back to the cohesiveness of MDC! I was having withdrawal! Thanks for all the kuddos on the crafts. Really those were all firsts so not too impressive but I do enjoy tinkering. THANKS Michelle, you have inspired me to attempt to conquer my longtime fear of yarn and needle (though I am thinking more crochet). I have always wanted to try since watching my grandmother knit. We'll see how that goes. First is my flooring though. I bought engineered hardwood to put in the living room and hallway ($700 or so which was a great deal because it was being discontinued). I am such a sucker for a sale. So I am painting this weekend, preparing for the wood floor party and getting together with some High School classmates for some horse shoes and umbrella drinks.
On a personal note, one reason for my incogneto is I am soooooo majorly stressed about Thursday's appt. with the fertility specialist. I am trying not to focus on the negative things I fear he will say but also prepare myself for the possibility as well. DH got a teaching job so he will now not be going. I am debating about going solo or taking my mother (who can be very uptight, know-it-all and pushy - but I love her dearly!). I am thinking she may have me more stressed. Maybe I will bring her but have her wait outside... is that rude? Asking her to wait for 1 1/2 hrs???? AhhhhhH! Anyways...
ANGELA - good luck on the insemenation
MICHELLE - I am on CD17 and have not O'ed yet. The last 2 cycles were around CD22... is that normal? They were both after m/c so who knows? I am glad you have good CM though. I seemed to have noticed mine more in college and mid 20's when I thought something was wrong (before I knew it was good to have that
- I have been thinking about you alot! I don't really know what to say other than I hope you stick around here because this great group of ladies want to give you unconditional support! p.s. I LOVE your hair. I wish I could wear mine short like that. I am also a tat freak, planning on my next soon that I designed as a tribute to my rough year last year (DH hates tats.. hee hee)
DEE & JUDY - Your pics are just too cute! Here's best wishes for a continued HH pregnancy!
MANDY & CHRISTINA & LACY - G/L and will you be posting any pics?? Preggo pics are so beautiful!
RAIN - Hope all is going well with you and look forward to seeing some pics soon?!!? Any thoughts on chiropractic care while preggo? My co-worker (who called me 20 minutes after my second m/c started to tell me she was pregnant) is now going to see one. Words of wisdom I can share?
JENNIFER - G/L with teaching - I would love to read some work too.. do you have a particular genre? I love nature poets like Emerson, Thoreau, Wordsworth. Not too much into "flowery" poets like alot of the female poets my sister likes. Then again, Edgar Allan Poe is one of my favorites - gloom and doom!
JEN - I read your post about doubts - AMEN! I mean, sometimes it is hard to juggle my feelings of wanting to be a mother so badly I could explode with really valuing my freedoms. You know how people say, "you don't want kids because you are selfish with your freedom", I feel like I want kids because I am selfish with feeling like it would complete me.
MHICCUP - never under estimate the power of a good talker
- there are so many boring, irrelevant blow hards (mostly in the politcal arena, whoops did I say/type that). p.s. we have all had our share of multiple HPTs - feel comforted you are with other addicts
MISCHIEVIUM - We have family in Seattle too - Bainbridge Island, pretty much all around. We had a family reunion out there last summer (where they filmed An Officer And A Gentleman) and it is purely spectacular. That is totally my kind of weather too! G/L on work schedule and consistant cycles
TO EVEYONE ELSE - I wish you continued happiness on TTC, continuing HH Pregnancy or introspective contemplation!!! TGIF
