4th of July

I am excited about this weekend. It will be our first camping trip this year. I love camping. We are heading over there Thursday night and staying until Sunday. It should be a nice long weekend and I am excited to get away for a little bit. I also love the fact that it's a short week...and I'm thinking about taking a Personal day on Thursday so we can get set up early and relax the rest of the day.

I am extremely exhausted right now. I pretty much slept through my alarm this morning, not realizing that I had turned it off a couple of times :) Oops! I have been feeling pretty good otherwise. Again.....bring on the symptoms!

I am going to take it easy as much as I can the rest of this week until next week's ultrasound. We go back on Wednesday and I was told that we might be able to see the baby actually moving on the screen next week :) Right now the pictures that I have make the baby look like a little bean. Ah! We are so excited right now...

Our First Ultrasound

We arrived promptly at 8am this morning to Dr. B's office. Of course, we are all smiles :) The ultrasound went really well. As of today, I am measuring 7 weeks. So, we got to see the strong little heartbeat at 147 bpm. Yay :) I am sooo excited!! I have another ultrasound next Wednesday at 11:30 and we will actually get to see my Dr. while we are there. The next ultrasound also falls on our 3 year Anniversary. I am still in complete shock.

Can someone please tell me what this is??

I have never seen it before and I was just curious if anyone knew what to make of this....

I AM PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my freaking goodness!!! I am so excited I could pee my pants at this point. I am in total shock and disbelief. I got a wild hair up the rear Friday morning when I woke up because I had been noticing the past few days that I have not been feeling well. I was getting nauseous for certain hours of the day and then it would come and go throughout the rest of the day and my boobs have been pretty tender. I mean, I never would have thought this in a million years. It was my last HPT, so I figured what the hey. Seriously...is this real?

I called the Dr.'s office as soon as 8am rolled around and told them that I really needed to come in for a blood test. I went in around 10am and they called me back around 12:30pm confirming that yes, I am pregnant. I cried. Lots and lots of tears. What is my beta you might ask? Well, as of Friday it was 32,040. Wow! The nurse said she thinks that I am probably about 5 or 6 weeks along. She said since everything was so confusing we would have to see on Monday at my first ultrasound!!!

So, hubby and I go in at 8am Monday morning. Is this really happening??? Is this really it for us??? Man I hope so. We decided that we are only going to tell both of our parents at this point and make them swear to secrecy. I definitely want to give it a little bit before we tell anyone else. Well, the people who know me IRL and read my blog will know, but please, please, please don't tell anyone. I had to tell blogland because I am still in total shock.

Hubby is so funny :) He was literally shaking Friday morning when he saw the pee stick on the counter. We are sooo incredibly thankful for this. I would have posted sooner, but life has been a whirlwind the past couple days. I'm still feeling a little nauseous throughout the day and the boobs are still sore, but other than that, I am good! Bring on the symptoms!!!!!!

Sleeping like a log?

So lets all say it together now....This F-ing Sucks!! Did I grab your attention? Good! And if not, well, sorry. Keep reading. You might find something interesting about this post :)

Quick update from the other day. I had to go in to the Dr.'s office yesterday and have some more bloodwork done. Imagine that one. I finally heard back from their office late this afternoon close to their quitting time of 4pm. The verdict? Back on Prometrium at 200mg for 7 days this time (it was 5 days 2 weeks ago). Bleh! This stuff makes me extremely tired. I mean, I have no idea my husband has climbed in bed with me when he gets home around 12amish. Nope. He talks to me and apparently I talk back, but have absolutely no recollection of said conversation. I even smacked his face away from me one night (hmm....lol).

I guess the positive is that I sleep really, really well and actually feel rested when I wake in the mornings. The negative is it makes me feel extremely bloated, almost like I did when I was injecting Gonal-F. And of course, the abuse of hubby. Again, bleh!

My Dr. (or nurse) doesn't seem to be too alarmed with this all of a sudden issue I am having. My estradiol level seems to be too high for me to start a period, yet again, but they seem to not be concerned at all. I, on the other hand, am concerned. NEVER have I gone almost 70 days without having a period. It's not cool. Especially when I am getting the occasional every other day to couple days menstrual cramping. It's very frustrating.

So, its off to the meds I go. Even after I get done with these it could still take up to a week and a half to get the 'Flow'. Just bring on the damn period already!!!

Waiting for the Dr.

I am sitting here waiting for my Dr.'s office to call me back. Yesterday marked two weeks of being done with the Prometrium and still nothing. Nothing at all. I should have started by now. I was told that it would take at the most a week and a half to get the ball rolling. So, now, I sit and wait for the phone call to tell me what has to be done next. I hate waiting.

I had a wonderful weekend though :) It was nice to be able to enjoy it without having AF in the way. Hubby, Blaze, and I participated in the annual Homeward Bound Walk, to raise awareness for the Homeless, on Saturday morning. We then headed out to L.ow.e's to pick up a new outdoor high dining table and bar stool set. We cleaned out our camper on Sunday in preperation for our July 4th outing. We were then able to grill out and enjoy our new dining set for the evening. It was nice to be able to just relax for most of the weekend.

I am looking forward to having company this coming weekend! My roommate and best friend from college is coming down with her fiance' and it should be a wonderful weekend! Now, I just have to get my house cleaned up before they get here....lol.

On with the waiting...

Weezer, the crotchity one who always seems to ruin the party

Okay...I mean really. 63 days?? Who does that?? Who literally goes 63 days without having a period?!?! I know, I know, I'm preaching to the choir with some of you, so forgive me because this is just a little abnormal for me. I have been cramping off and on for the past week now, thinking that she is on her way, but nooooo. You know, as I mock her, she will probably be the biggest bitch in the world and show up at my doorstep hotter and heavier than she has ever been before. If this occurs, there WILL be a sick day involved. Sorry work, Aunt Flow decided to be the biggest bitch ever and not allow me to be able to walk today so I will be in my bed with some heavy duty painkillers and a heating pad over my aching uterus and it probably still won't do the trick. I might be in tomorrow, if you're lucky. Oh wait...she does have to get here first, right?

I'm thinking if she does not make an appearance tomorrow, Dr. B's office will be receiving a phone call. I mean, is there any other way we can force her to come for a visit? How often do we really want to see our mean old Aunty F anyway? I for one, would like to not see her for the next 9 months if it meant only one thing. And apparently you do not have to have a visit every month, but I like to keep her coming so I know what I have to work with in the end. I do not like surprises. Well, most of the time. Unless it comes in a little white stick with two little pink lines showing in the fun little window. You know, I would also take a nice + sign. Or heck, why don't you just go ahead and throw in the PREGNANT digital one. But damnit, those things are ex-pen-sive. So if you're paying, count me in ;). No? Well....damn you Aunty Flow.

Do you know who I picture when I think about Aunt Flow? The lady off of Steel Magnolias (great movie by the way). I do believe her name is Weezer? Please correct me if I am wrong. That is the face that always seems to show up when I think of Aunt Flow. Old and crotchity.

Okay, I'm done mocking her now. I seriously believe that she is going to come back and make my life a living hell. Only time will tell...

Happy Blogoversary!!!

So....as I was thinking...today is a special day! Today is my one year blogoversary!!

Lobster anyone??

I. am. sore. My legs are burnt to a crisp. They seriously are almost Lobster red. I did everything in my power to not get this way, but apparently it was not enough. Sunscreen was NOT my friend yesterday. My poor hubby is Lobster red all over. Not really sure he will be able to get out of bed today...however, I do not have much sympathy for him. He refused to put sunscreen on for most of the day. He only put it on twice.

The important thing is, we had fun. We spent some quality time with some friends out on a boat on the river. It was a really nice day, but we will both be paying dearly for the next few days. I am half tempted to head home on my lunch and put on some sweatpants :) I am in the office all day today doing notes, so it probably wouldn't be a big deal. The thought is VERY tempting.

On another note....AF is nowhere to be seen. I'm starting to get a little pissy. Okay, that started when I had to take the Prometrium to get her to come around. Now, I'm almost fuming. Literally, 60 days. This scares the crap out of me! I could be overreacting, but oh well. I'm wondering if this is a sign that my endo is back. I don't know, but it sucks.

What's that you say?? How long?? Oh you HAVE to be pregnant! No?

This has been the longest cycle that I have ever had in my life!! I'm pretty sure that I have never gone 54 days without having my period start. Maybe in like Junior High, but I am pretty sure that even with my endo I have been pretty regular. Granted there were a couple months where I was about 2 weeks late, but never have I gone this long. It's a little weird to me...

My last two Prometrium pills were taken Sunday night, so AF should be coming along any day now. I feel and look bloated, so I wish she would just get her bitchy self here already!! Or am I the bitchy one? I'm pretty sure it goes both ways, right ladies? :)

We dog sat all last week for my in-laws. She is known as the little Princess by my MIL. Let me introduce to you, Miss Chloe Lynn, AKA "Little Shit".

In all of her 6 lbs of Ocherese fury, she will put my 140 lb Great Dane in his place. Whether this involves grabbing his lip while they are playing or kicking him out of bed for the entire week because she needs her space under the covers (I kid you not, Blaze slept on the couch alllllll week long). She ate HIS food all week underneath the kitchen table. She is given water via Dixie cups and will inform you when she would like some fresh with continuous barking and growling.

Lets just say, she is high maintenance. She is my MIL's pride and joy. No offense to little dog lovers, but I for one, will NEVER have a small dog in my household :)

On to other news...oh wait, there isnt any other news. Life is just plugging along over here in Southern Indiana. Oh yes, while at a wedding, one of the guys that I grew up with and his wife informed me that they will be trying to start their family this fall. I have a feeling we will be getting another announcement really soon.....
