The results are in

Well, it seems that the tests for my thyroid came back in the normal range. This, is in fact good news. My sister has Hypothyroidism and I was really hoping that I did not have another issue to add to our list of problems. So, all is clear at this time.

Now, I sit and wait until we either get pregnant on our own or come up with enough money to get us through an IVF cycle. That, could be a long time waiting.

Driving home last night from picking up my Prometrium from I started thinking. And you know what thinking leads to? Tears. It was the first time in a long time that I had cried over our circumstance. I quickly brushed it away and drove on.

She's still a No-Show of today, there is still no AF. This would make it somewhere around 47ish days? I have it written down at home (Im at work). I called my Doctor yesterday because I was out of town from Wednesday til Saturday last week and they got me in for some b/w this morning first thing.

Received a phone call back around 1:15 and was told that no, I am definitely not pregnant and that my estradiol level was definitely higher than they would like to see it. So...I have to go and pick up some prometrium tonight so that we can get my cycle rolling. This will be the first time that I have taken prometrium. The last time they prescribed it, my period started the next day :) tricky little shit she is.

When my nurse called back, I informed her that we may need to check out my thyroid, just in case. My sister has a history of Hypothyroidism (which Im pretty sure I told them last year at my initial visit), but I never had any baseline lab work done. Hmmm??? So, I am supposed to be receiving a phone call back for that. They had enough blood from my draw today to be able to run the thyroid test(s) without needing more. So...Im guessing they will give me a call tomorrow.

I just want to make sure we are checking everything just in case. Which, it should have been done from the get go. Oh well. Is it Friday yet????

I did as I was told. I tested Saturday morning. Sorry I didn't post sooner, but I was extremely lazy last night :) It's still a Big Fat Freaking Negative (BFFN). That's what I am going to start using from now on. I think it's fun. And you know, when you are really super, duper pissed off you can always change out the Freaking with, well, you know. And really, if I have to spell it out for you, you obviously have not been mad enough to utter that four letter word. We all know that I have because it has shown up on my blog several different times.

So...I am asking for advice now. I have absolutely no signs that AF will be showing. I am thinking that a phone call to the Dr. if she does not show up tomorrow would probably be a good thing. Then, they can at least have that in their records, yet again. Not that it will make much of a difference in anything.

Today was b-e-a-utiful. We got some landscaping done. Always fun! The front of our house went from blah to ooooh pretty :) Now I just need to figure out what else I want to add to spruce up the color a bit. I absolutely love this time of year because I get to landscape. I plan on planting Hydrangea's on the side of our garage next. Next year, landscaping around the deck.

Did you miss me?!?!

I'm pretty sure you probably didn't. I mean, my life has just been so incredibly thrilling lately (note: sarcasm). I am a week late with AF. My red light is going off in my head. Do I think I'm pregnant? The last time that I was late having a period was before my surgery over a year ago. As I said, the emergency red light is flashing in the back of my mind. Is my endo back? Did I stop ovulating regularly again because my endo is back? It's probably partially my own fault. I am not taking BCP's like I am supposed to. I'm stubborn.

You know that I can't be anywhere near optimistic because lets face it, I suck at getting pregnant. Is that a shocker to anyone? Nope, not me. Hubby? He is filled with optimism. Damn him. He's the one that puts that little bit of hope in the back of my head when I have been trying over and over again to get it out. Again, damn him and his optimism. I guess that one of us has to have that quality though right?

We put our deposit down on the cruise we are taking next March. I am sooooo ready for a vacation! I am actually taking a few days off next week and going with my mom and grandma to Quantico, Virginia to see my brother-in-law graduate from his Officer Training. That will be a nice get-a-way. However, hubby will not be able to join, which makes me sad.

My one year blogoversary is coming up on June 8th! Whoo hoo!! Exciting stuff ;)
