I'm Out...
... and on another break. Work is crazy and I can't stand the emotional and physical roller coaster right now. It is time for me to relax and focus on the things that I DO have... Husband, Dog, Cat, job, house, blah, blah, blah. My IVF consult is set for January 6th and until then I plan to drink bottles and bottles of wine and cook cookies and candy galore! I hope that you will still visit me often - even if it is just to snag a recipe :o)

Happy Thanksgiving...
I hope that you all had a wonderful day! Here's to Turkey hangovers and sleeping like a puppy...

... so everything was perfect at the US on Tuesday. I had two follies, left side, 26mm and 28mm. My lining was 11mm and we triggered. The IUI was on Wednesday morning and Husband's numbers were fantastic, 22.40 million at 2+-3+ grade! So now we wait...

In other news... Husband got his repeat SA back and everything was PERFECT! In fact, he was better than normal. His Morph (Krueger) went from 6% to 18%!!!! Holy fucking shit Batman! guess there is something to be said for giving up the smoke! Geesh! I am very happy that everything is normal, but it does make us 100%, totally and completely UNEXPLAINED. BAH!

Work has been absolutly INSANE. We have been working on a huge case (that I can't talk about) for the last three months and everything broke this week - my phone has been ringing off the hook! I am exhausted and I don't feel like I am ever going to get caught up on my sleep - PLUS I fired the maids and am now responsible for cleaning the house myself... at least until I hire a new one.

I hope that everyone has plans for a nice Thanksgiving. We are planning to have my parents and Grandfather over and I am going to cook. I will probably spend the rest of the long weekend working and relaxing. Will be back soon for another update - and perhaps I will tell you what has been on my mind!

It's Like A Tide Commercial...
... in this house every Damn Week! These are the words explained by Husband this evening after we spent twenty minutes cleaning red wine out of the couch, the white carpet, his khaki pants and his tan sweater. Last week the culprit was grease from the door frame of his truck and who knows what it was the week before. I am the master stain remover and it is a darn good thing because Husband and I epitomize Messy Marvin! Anyway, it was a good diversion for a few minutes this evening. So far no positive OPK. I have a scanning ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow morning and hopefully I will be ready for a trigger. I still can't believe I am on try number five.

There is some other news brewing that I am not ready to talk about yet, but promise to share soon!

Four Day Weekends...
... are the best thing in the world. Tomorrow is a holiday where I work, it was also am supposed to be my day off. So, I took today off instead of tomorrow and ended up with a four day weekend. So far I have done nothing but clear out my work email (25 emails before 10am) and catch up on all of my TiVo'd/DVR'd shows. I still have like five hours to catch up on - geez I watch too much tv!

I am on day eight and looking forward to being done with the Clomid. Husband goes in for his repeat SA tomorrow. Keep you fingers crossed for us that everything comes out wonderful! Next week is IUI #5 and then the wait. God I feel like a broken record sometimes!

I can't believe that it is already November and that we are making plans for Christmas and Thanksgiving. More on those details later... right now I have to cook lunch, clean the kitchen, do the laundry and prep dinner! I am such a busy little beaver!

See ya!

... I have been busy, Birthday, work, period. Yup - that is right my period hit just in time to ruin my weekend. I took Cl0mid pill number one tonight and have official started Cl0mid/IUI cycle number FIVE! I don't think that I can handle too many more cycles on this protocol and expect big changes next year. I am SO. BURNED. OUT. I hope that you are all well... I suck and haven't been keeping up at all. I know that Zoot had her baby. WOO HOO! And so did Miss W! But beyond that I am behind... very, very, very behind! I have a four day weekend and if I can keep myself from working from home all day on Thursday I will be sure to catch up and update. Thanks to all of you that are sticking around, sorry that I suck :o(
