Hey Nicki - Ya know, my life is just stupid, ridiculous right now, if there was a word stronger than ridiculous, I'd use it, wait, let's make one up, redonkulous! My life is redonkulous right now! :lol: I hate it! But oh well, I wish that it was just IVF, and that stress, I think I'd be relieved if that was it... but soon it will be! So you did the Clomid Challenge... perfect! That sounds great!!! I haven't gotten my AF yet, so when I do I'll call the doctor, I hope just this one time my AF is a bit late, because I have the Colonoscopy on Monday - I won't really be able to do much that day... darn it! So let's hope she get's here on Sunday! (but she's due on Thursday or Friday...) so we shall see. Eric and Danielle, just didn't seem to be getting along very well, but I heard they are friends now so that is good. I am sorry your Dr.'s office gave you the run around today, I hope that means there isn't much to worry about??? Please let me know!

See ya later, alligator!!

XXOO!

Me :)

Okay ladies, I need some advice. I have been on continuous BC pills for about 4 months (I think). I am on these because I have severe endo. and we don't want it to grow. Anyhow, about 3 weeks ago I started spotting. So, I called the dr. and he said for me to go off the pill (only for 3 days), have a real period, and then go back on the pills. So, I did exactly that, and I am still bleeding. I have been back on the BC or 4 days. I am more than spotting...actually at times I have huge (half dollar size) clots ...sorry if that is TMI :oops:
I am so worried this is going to interfere with my IVF cycle. I am supposed to start Lupron on the 22nd...a little less than 2 weeks.
I am looking so forward to doing IVF again that I cannot imagine postponing things :(

AMAZING RACE THOUGHTS- I was sad to see the show end. I don't like summer as there are not many reality shows on (except Big Brother :oops: Anyhow, I was glad, sort of, that Eric and Danielle won. I really wanted the Beauty Queens to win. I thought they worked really hard, and fought the race well. Of course you guys are right about Eric and Danielle overcoming not one, but two yields.

BACHELOR- So mad that he got rid of Sugar Land girl. I know she was really imature, but I liked her the best. I think he will end up with Bevin, who I do not like at all :cry:

SURVIVOR- So sad to see that it ends this week. Saw a spoiler, so I konw who the final three are. Will be anxious to see who wins.

Wanna- I had really bad leg cramps when I was pregnant with my daughter. I heard that if you put a bar of IVORY soap under the sheets at the bottom of the bed, you will not have leg cramps anymore. Can't say I ever tried it, but it did make me wonder.

meg- Sorry to hear about the Garage Door. I would immediately call dh just to get to spend a few mid-morning extra minutes with him. I am not handy at all. Bugs dh every once in a while...actually, just makes him feel needed every once in a while.

Nickster- I am so sorry to hear that the doctors office gave you the run around. I hope everything is okay. Just think positively. I am sure they would have already called you if there was something negative going on.

Melissa112- I hope the bum gets better soon.

Okay, I missed about a hundred of you guys, but I gotta run to bed. Busy day at school today...the kids plum wore me out. Only 13 days of school left though....who's counting though??????

hrobinson...We need to come up with a nickname for you. I'm too lazy to type all of that! Any suggestions from anyone? Anyway, sorry to hear about the bleeding. I know that bc really messes me up whenever I'm on it...last time, I bled the entire 21 days I was taking it, plus a full AF after words. So, I don't think it's too abnormal. Those hormones really can mess you up! I truly hope it doesn't mess up your cycle!

I was kind of glad he got rid of Amber (talking Bachelor here, now!) but I agree with you about Bevyn. I really hope he gets rid of her next. I can't decide between Tessa and Danielle. I think Danielle might be a sleeper...I like her more and more!

And how good was Lost tonight???? Loved it!

Well, off to take a bath before bed. Hope you all had a great Wednesday (or Thursday for you people on the other side of the world!)

Mego

I entirely agree with you that HRobinson needs a nickname. Can I suggest "Robbo"?

I am also a huge fan of reality TV, my DH hates it when a new show comes on. I particularly love the Bachelor, it is so gross and demeaning. Everything I like in a tv show...

As far as the worry goes I am hearing you 110%. At my 12 week scan I just lay there and held my breath thinking that the Dr was going to tell me that Noggin was dead. Now that Noggin appears to be on the small side I am convinced that the poor little beast has shrivelled up entirely. I can't stand it and can't wait till my next appointment but am also so damned scared about it. I haven't told DH about my worries because he is also a worrier and quite frankly I don't need the stress of that right now! I think Nickster is right, when you have to do IVF there is no part of being preg that you take for granted and u just freak out the whole time wanting it to be OK....

And of course Wanna is in the neurotic club as well. I wouldn't expect anything less from a fellow hypochondriac...At least Wanna sounds like she has a half attentive Dr who orders bed rest, my clinic don't even want to answer their phone...As far as the twins go I think they should each have a working title like Noggin has. I'm thinking about it and will let you know when inspiration strikes...

OK Nickster your CT ordeal sounds bloody awful. And as far as Apple Smoothies go, gross! even without having a medicinal purpose Apples should never be mushed up and drunk. And that F*ckwit trying to stick you with the needle, you probably could have found a junkie on the street who would have done a more professional job. Hope at least the results are OK when they finally give them to you...I hate waiting for test results...I always think the worst...I'm sure you will be fine though becuase they didn't pick anything up when you were there...

Robbo, sorry about your AF and spotting, can't help you though as i don't have any personal experience, could it be that the BCP has mucked things up???

Patie, look on the bright side while DH is in Yamen he can't be cracking the whip over you in the workplace, now is the time to play up and paarty!

Sass, what did you eat today????

Angie, that AF had better show up I want some more Dr D stories!!!

No Thanks Mel don't want to trade you for your Bum Fun coming up, thank for the tempting offer though... excellent news on starting up on drugs. It makes a huge difference to feel like you are doing something as opposed to the waiting phase....and congrats on the Salmonella test, it's always great to know that some parts of our bodies are functioning normally!!! I don't know what I'll do about the beautican problem as I will need some waxing prior to next OB/GYN appt in 13 days. A new shop has just opened up down the road from work. I may have to go in and drop my pants for a whole new bunch of people....

And so will Jenn... excellent news on starting up on the drugs. Glad to hear that one of us will be nice and hopped up on some good hormones soon. Looking forward to the ensuing ranting which should follow...

Vicky, counting down the days till Argentina??? How long will you be gone for??

Have to go car pooling buddy wants to go!!

Mel—Ok, I was wondering what was up with the Barwhore! Who is she and where did she come from and when is she leaving? McDreamy is only suppose to be with Meredith or me!! lol I guess he is getting tired of “breathing for her”. :cry: I am so tired of Burke and Christina and George and his chick. It’s all so fake. Give us a break already. You do have a lot coming up. Good Luck to you! Oh yeah, congrats on the Salmonella test. I knew you weren’t rotten. Redonkulous!!! I like that. lol

Meg—Ha! We can trade crazy stories. lol Your DH sounds like mine. There is but so much I will tell him because I don’t want to worry him and I don’t want him to think I’m nuts. It’s weird but I think my stomach looks bigger at night time. lol Maybe it’s because I’ve eaten all day. I’m not sure what my stomach is measuring at. I’ll be sure to ask on Monday. I’m also going to ask if there is anything I can do about the tiredness. All I want to do is sleep. I did find out at my last appointment that I was anemic but doctor said most pregnant woman were and that he wasn’t worried and he wouldn’t give me anything unless I absolutely needed it. I guess if I fall asleep at my desk or while driving. Don’t worry about not feeling her move. Maybe she was taking a nap. I’m so jealous. I can’t wait to feel my little ones move. I say that now but will probably be cursing about it later when I’m trying to sleep and one is moving and the other is sleep and then as soon as one stops moving the other one starts. I can see it now. There will be a party in my belly 24/7. :P

Nickster—Don’t think the worse (I have a lot of nerve lol). I’m queen of negative thinking. But, I’m sure everything is fine. The doctor probably told the receptionist that you would be calling for your results and that’s why she knew who you were. If I recall correctly, usually the doctor is suppose to give you the results, regardless of what they are. I have tried to pull results out of nurses and receptionists on many occasions (thinking to myself it must be bad if the doctor has to tell me). But on every occasion, the doctor wants to talk to me. Must be some lawful reason to it. lol

hrobinson—Hmmm, you sound a lot like me. I have endo. I would get the long periods and heavy clots (sorry TMI). I don’t think you would have to post pone starting lupron. I think on one occasion I started lupron while on my period. The doctors calculate all that stuff and take that into account. The lupron will probably bring your period to a halt if you are still bleeding then. But more than likely you won’t be. Try not to worry. WOW!! Never heard the Ivory soap theory but I’m wiling to give it a try. Man, too bad I use Dove. I would try it tonight. Now I have to make a trip to the market. I wonder what causes these leg cramps. Someone told me it was low potassium levels. Well I’ve been a little monkey eating a banana everyday. :shock:

Fi—You decribed my feelings to a “T”. During my examination, especially the ultrasound. I just lay there praying that we see heartbeats. That’s the only thing I focus on. I’m thinking…PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let their little hearts be beating. Don’t worry (YEAH RIGHT) about Noggin being a little small. I’m sure he’ll have a growth spurt and surprise us all. We worry when they are too small and worry when they are too big. It never ends and like you said when having an IVF pregnancy you worry about everything and take nothing for granted. It’s not like we can just get pregnant again like that (snapping fingers now) if Godforbid, something was to happen. So we have no choice but to worry and freak out. At least that’s my rational.

Patie—Has worked slowed down or picked up with DH gone? I know you miss him. When is he coming home?

Vicky—How are you sweetie? How’s my Sanson? Tell him I will post a picture of his Godbrother as soon as I figure out how.

Sassy—Please pop in and tell us what you did today and what you ate. I live through you. :wink:

Jenn—How’s the shots going? Any side effects yet?

Angie---Helloooooooooooooo, where are you? Do we need to call the Attorney General on AF?

Where is Coco and Amy? Who else am I missing? I come back and everyone else disappears? Did I run anyone off?

What about calling hrobinson, hrob? Or just rob? I like Robbo too!

Ok, well I told DH last night that I’m looking forward to looking pregnant and not like I’ve been eating too many donuts. Once again he gave me the look. I think I’m going to have to talk to him about that. But anyway, I don’t think I look pregnant yet. Don’t get me wrong I have a noticeable bump but it’s one of those bumps that you can interpret as just having a kid or needing to slow down on the donuts. So it’s questionable right now. Those that don’t know me probably look at me and say, “boy she needs to loose some weight.” lol Speaking of donuts I did a drive by to Dunkin Donuts the other night after getting my hair done. It was late and I was so hungry. So I’m driving while talking to Dh on the cell phone and I said Ohh, Dunkin Donuts, I should stop there. So he goes, yeah, get me one too. He is no help what so ever. If, I keep listening to him I’ll be as big as a house. So I stop to get some glazed donuts. Two for him and two for me. Ha…yeah right. I ended up getting half a dozen (3 for him and 3 for me). I was so ashamed but not enough to put them back. lol Then the guy behind the cash register says, “for $2 more you can get a whole dozen.” So I ponder it for a moment and think to myself…..hmmm, sounds like a great deal. But then think…do we need that many?” It’s only us in the house. So I tell the little guy behind the counter that I’ll stick with my half a dozen. So he is like okay mam. I hate being called that! But he says okay mam, I’m just trying to save you some money. I say to myself, no you’re not you pimple face teenager, you’re trying to make me fatter than what I am. Guess I had a mini rant in my head. So I take my donuts home and devour them! So I guess I do like look the woman who has had one too many donuts…..because I have.

I've been watching a lot of discovery channel lately. They have a show called special delivery, a baby story and a couple other ones about pregnancies and deliveries. DH thinks I shouldn’t be watching them. Especially the special delivery ones. The show is usually about some type of trauma the mother or child is going thru and why it’s a special delivery. I am so intrigued but it. However as I get closer I might stop watching it for fear that it will scare the crap out of me. But the shows are very interesting and I’m learning a lot. Which should really annony my OBGYN when I tell him to try what I saw the doctor do on TV. lol :roll:

Wanna.....you crack me up with your stories!!!, have some donuts for me please!!!!, I am "trying" to lose some weight in the 10 days I have left until going to Argentina (I say trying in between quotes because it's hardly true :oops: ), the problem is that I look like I have eaten too many donuts as well with all this f**king hormones and I was hoping I would be pg by the time I went to Argentina so at least I would have an excuse for being fat, but now I'm screwed, I am just fat LOL :lol: ......oh well!!!

Fee.....I am happy Noggin/Noggella is doing ok, I understand about the worring status, I will probably be the same way when I am pg. I was talking about that with DH the other day, and he was already suffering thinking how I would be during the whole 9 months LOL!!!. When is your next scan?.....about your question, I am going to Argentina next Friday, and I will be there for 10 days, until after Memorial weekend (coming back on May 29), but I will be connected from there, so will not leave my sistas behind!!!!

Nickster.....I hate it when doctors make you wait, we all get so nervous thinking it's bad news, but the truth is most probably he saw his last patient at about 6pm and by the time he finished he had 1000000000 phone calls to do and that is why he couldn't get to yours, so don't worry, he will call you today, otherwise just call again and tell them that you are still waiting... :roll:

Meg......don't do that again of trying to open the garage door on your own, you scare me, so promise me you won't do it again, ok??.... :wink: , when is your next scan??....you should arrange with Fee to have them the same days so we don't have to be remembering so many dates and we can all worry at the same time :lol: .......I am sure your little princess is doing great, but as I told Fee, I will probably be the same way when pg, so can't really tell you not to freak out.... :oops:

Robbo (loved the nickname Fee...)......most probably it's just your hormones all messed up as Meg said, but you should call your RE and find out what he thinks about it, hope you are better.....

Mel......I am going to Buenos Aires, that is where I am from, I am a city girl, :wink: . I am sorry to hear you are still having that bloody discharge. But as you said, Monday is almost here and we will all be able to relax after that!!!! :wink:

Sassy.....that trip sounds so great, and the pictures are fabulous!!!!!!. I so want to be there!!!!!. I have been reading your blog and I felt totally transported to Austria for a moment, mostly when you told your story of when you went there for the first time.....send more pics!!!

Well, so AF is here, which is good, so today I just called the RE's office to schedule CD2 scan and bw for tomorrow. It was so weird, the secretary was wishing me luck on Monday and today she was scheduling me to start all over again, it sucks.... :( , oh well. And the other thing is that I have been trying to avoid telling anybody about my cycles, and during this last one when people would ask me about my cycle I would say "we won't start until when we come back from Argentina" (but of course we were cycling at that time, only that I didn't want to tell them), but now everybody will start asking again when I come back from my trip, and I don't know what the hell am I going to tell them :cry: , DH says I should tell everybody for once and for all that "you will find out when I am three months pregnant, in the meanwhile please don't ask".....but I think it's a bit too harsh......
So I will be starting BCP againnnnnnnnnnnnnn tomorrow.

Hey girls...

Fee: oh yes, the "Food Files". I have been trying not to totally lose my will while here (gained a few pounds while in Austria... :roll: )... but yesterday, i had... lots of cheese (of all kinds... my fave!), a little bit of chocolate, some fantastic veal... and some pasta on the side (and a salad for good measure)! I am usually a fool for gelato... but have been trying to be good, so just having one every other day... and savoring it. We are going to a hoity-toity place for some 7- odd course meal tonight... i will give you all the gory details tomorrow...

Nickster: no, not my inlaws in that picture... they are acutally my "austrian parents". Glad to hear the CT appeared ok. i imagine that since it was ok, the MD's office is taking their sweet time to get back to you. Now.... if we still had Amy (aka AG) around, she would sooooo go over there and kick some a&&.

Mego: oh, yeah, right. The 'ol "car is trapped in the garage" ruse... used it a hundred times :lol: . Glad to hear the little one is a busy beaver moving around. btw.... what are we calling her now????

Wanna: glad to hear you are finding some nap time, those cramps sure DO NOT sound like fun. I like "twinglets". But agree they could also use individual names. I'm sure our creative director (aka HRH Fee) will come up with something smashing.

Mel: OOOO, bum fun, AF and clomid challenge all in one week... how lucky are you? :lol: glad to hear your salmonella test went well.

btw.... i don't think i shared my meds drama with you all last week... I decided to go back on bcps after this AF to help regulate in case i want to cycle at the beginning of July. BUT i forgot to pick them up before leaving. I had emailed MIL and asked her to pick them up for me... but we wouldn't be meeting up until cd39, so i thought i was screwed. Considered having my friend in Vienna get me some (he is an OB), but didn't want to unless i had to, and wasn't sure what hormone doses were in the ones i was using... etc. So i knew if AF didn't come until cd 37, I would be safe 'cuz i could start the bcp from MIL on cd3... o/w it was taking another chance on a natural month, or making an educated guess on some austrian bcp. Guess what.... AF showed up... on cd37. For once i wanted her to come late... and she did. Go figure.

The BIL Files: Well, the sh*t hit the fan (now we just wait to see if MIL/FIL are going to stoop and pick it up again :roll: ). Before coming to Italy, FIL/MIL actually kicked him out of the house he has been living in after he attacked his (ex)girlfriend while trying to steal her car (slammed her head into the steering wheel). She filed a police report b/c she told MIL she wanted there to be a record in case he kills her. We found out last night that BIL arrested yest trying to cash a check with FIL's name using an ID in FIL's name. Casino got suspicious, called the cops, and he was picked up. Finally. At least we know where he is and that he is relatively "safe" and off the streets.

Vicky--I totally agree with DH, but then again I am known to be harsh. :-) Proud of it too. But I don’t think that is too harsh. No one knew we were doing IVF but when they would ask about us trying I would tell them, you'll know when I start to show...being the smart ass I am. :-) But seriously, tell them that you would rather they not keep asking. It's not something you would like to discuss on the regular. Tell them when you have something to tell them you will but please do not ask you. Or you can just tell them....we haven't given up. We are still trying. Let their imagination run wild. Trying could be naturally of with IVF. They don’t need to know the details.

When I talked to people about IVF. I would constantly tell them that we were "thinking" about doing it. I never told them that we were going thru it when we were. Then when people asked I would say..."we're still trying to decide. We want take into account all factors."

Another thing that worked for me was directing the conversation back to them very quickly. lol For example..."Is your hubby still acting like an ass?" ,"Is little Tommy still throwing temper tantrums in public?" People love talking about their children.

Hopefully, people will ask you about your vacation and not IVF.

Melissa~ Hopefully AF will be late so you're able to get the colonoscopy out of the way before she comes! Wow, that's coming up. I bet you'll be glad to have that over with so you don't have to think about it anymore! Should we start a countdown to throne time?

Wanna~ I see absolutely nothing wrong with a donut (or three) when you want it! You need to treat yourself sometimes. And, I'm sure you are the only one that thinks you look like you've eaten to much. Even if you don't look very pregnant yet, you will soon!
So you've been taking your relax time from work and watching the baby shows huh? I used to watch the baby story. That is before I started delivering babies for a living. Now I can't watch. It's like when you look at computers all day at work and then don't want to come home and look at one..same thing. Yeah baby story is a good one but don't get too caught up in some of those others. Some of those others where the moms have all the problems will make you crazy (at least it would make me crazy worried if I was pregnant).

Fee~ I agree with you on the "apples should never be a beverage" thing! Actually that drink was an insult to apples! It was more like chalk with MAYBE a hint of apple flavor! It was just disgusting. I used to work on a medical floor, so people had to drink that crap all the time. Let me tell you, I now have a whole new respect for them. And you're right, I probably could have found a junkie to do a better job doing the IV! I wanted to smack him, every time he stuck and missed, he would say "ooh i'm sorry that one's really going to leave a bruise"! Oh well, it's over!
Fee, I know this is real easy for me to say but please try not to worry so much about the baby. I really do understand where you're coming from and I really do think I might be the same way if I were pregnant. I just hate to see you so stressed and worried. I just wish there was a way we could make all you ladies feel better, but there isn't. It's like we said before, it all comes from the fact that you have wanted and waited for this baby for so long. I can't remember how many weeks you are but I know you're getting up there and you should be feeling that baby swishing around in there anytime now!

Meg~ How are you?
So you weren't an Amber fan? I actually liked her but I did think she was young for him. I think the college roomate sealed that deal! Talk about immature..that girl definitely was! But I really think he will end up with Bevin. He seems to really like her. But who knows, it wouldn't be the first time for a surprise ending.
How's your noggin in there? Still movin' around a lot?
Any swimming lately?

hrobinson~ I like robbo too...is it ok if we re-name you???
I hope AF slowed down for you. I know those bcp's can really mess with your cycles. But I do think in most cases Lupron will stop it completely, won't it? At least it did for me.
Ok so more show talk...
I agree with you about the beauty queens. I liked them but I really didn't care who won as long as it wasn't Charla & Mirna!
Survivor- I am always sad to see Survivor end! I read in my magazine the other day though that they were going to have another Survivor all-stars, this time with the losers.

Patie, Jenn, Angie, Coco~ How are you girls?
Angie~ I think it's almost time to move in to your house (if you're not already in it). Let us know how it is!

Sassy~ Hope you're still enjoying your vacation. Keep snapping those beautiful pictures for us!

I am STILL waiting to hear from my dr. I don't think that girl yesterday gave him the message. I worked last night so I am very tired but I guess I have to stay and wait who knows how long for them to call me back.

Vicky-- missed you whilst writing my epic post. I hope you have a fab visit home. As for everyone else. They can go to hell. Tell them only what you want them to know (coming from the biggest IVF blabbermouth :wink: ). And, btw, i don't think telling them they will hear when you are 3 mo preg is too harsh... as long as you say it nicely.

Robbo: see... we here at the sisterhood have a tendency to rename people/things on a whim. So unless we hear o/w, Robbo it is. I'm hoping the whole bleeding thing gets sorted out. Really no advice for you there.

There were posts going on while I was posting.

Sassy~ Wow..your bil is something else! It's a good thing you got the right brother!! He's a mess! Can you imagine being his ex-girlfriend? That would be a horrible way to live. Like you said, at least he is FINALLY where he belongs and hopefully nobody will have to worry about him for a while!
I hope you're able to get your pills.

Vicky~ Your upcoming Argentina trip sounds amazing! You girls are really making me jealous now! The rest of us will just have to live vicariously through you and Sassy!
I'm glad to here AF showed up in a timely fashion and you'll be back at it. As far as all those nosy a*s people, I don't think you would be too harsh by telling them to back off a little bit. It's ashame people have to pry in your business so much that it puts you in that position. But for God sake enough is enough! Why don't people seem to get that concept?

Hello girls~

Well Nickster- I hope they call back with the news that you are fine soon! Doesn't that suck when you are told you will get a call back and you wait and wait?

Vicky- I agree with DH I don't think it is harsh. I wish I would have thought of that. People ask me how it's going or if I'm cycling and I blab my whole story to them. Then I regret it later. I told myself I wasn't going to tell anyone this time and I have told more people than last time. Now before I go out with anyone I have to repeat to myself "I will not talk about IVF, I will not talk about IVF!" Then I usually do. I can keep everyone else's secrets but my own. Why is that? Your trip sounds great! Can't wait for you to tell us all about it!

Sass- I am so jealous of your trip. It sounds great. Glad to hear BIL is "safe". When will you be home?

Wanna- EAT the Donuts!! I know what you mean about looking pregnant. I can't wait for that either. I want to look 5-6 months the whole time though. That huge 9 month look I could do without! I think you should try the ivory soap thing. I want to know if that works!

Mel- your medical debacles amaze me. I don't know how you do it. I'll pray for you that your bum heals and your colonoscopy goes well. I can imagine you are scared! I have only been miserable and wondering what was wrong with me one time in my life. It doesn't compare to you, and it is a long story about an infection down there that would not clear up. So after many Dr. appt's and treatments I ended up taking someones advice and using this stuff called Gentian Violet and painting my "parts" purple. It took weeks to get the purple out! I ended up at the dermatologists office (who does not have stirrups I might add) he had to look at it...and laugh at it, and determine I had a reaction to the cream my Dr. precsribed to clear up the infection in the first place. Since it was itchy and burny they just thought I still had the infection and had me keep applying the cream. Most humiliating medical experience ever for me!

So...now it is really no big deal to get in the stirrups because I figure it could be worse- they could be looking at my purple parts!!

Well I have been shooting up! 3 in the stomach and one in the rear every day. My tummy has little red spots everywhere. I go for a scan tomorrow. Hopefully we will see some action. I'll let you know. I got a job for next year teaching third grade! I am excited. We are planning on a trip this summer to Paris, London,and Rome. I am THRILLED!!!
Gotta go! I write more later!
Jenn

We are totally on a roll, the sisters are back! I thought being caught up on personals yesterday was fantastic and I'd have some time to do personals one by one, but I don't and I love it! 8) We totally rock!

Jenn- I know this medical crap right now is crazy, when it rains it freakin' pours, oh well, one thing at a time! And uh, purple coochie syndrome is awesome, I love it, but that is terrible! How crazy is that!!! You poor poor thing! Don't you love when you have a bad reaction to something that is supposed to heal you! I hate that! That has to be the most humiliating and embarressing medical thing E..V.E.R! You win! :D Hooray for shots! And Hip Hip Hooray for your new job teaching 3rd grade, and London, Rome and Paris!!! (I just saw some great rates on Expedia for London - you might wanna check it out!

Nicki - The flip side ticker is my nice way of putting the backside/bum count down... :lol: I know I have a sick way of looking at things. I made my Jello last night, I think I'll need more though, I mean I really can't eat anything on Sunday, I was looking at the list - Popsciles (lemon, lime and banana flavors ONLY) Jello, Boullion... that's it! So I need to make more Jello (and nothing Red colored - do you know that most things Jello are red! Like Cranberry, Stawberry, Cherry. Strawberry Banana...) Your needle story made me think that a junkie could have done a better job, and then Fee said it... she took the words right out of my mouth - Great minds think alike!

Vicky - You are totally a city girl! I can picture you with your hair flowing as you are walking down the streets of Buenas Aires, shopping, drinking a coffee - it's totally you! I think it's a good idea to sort of leave others in the dark while you are cycling, it's probably easier that way. I'd do the same thing. It's a personal matter and you don't need the added stress of other asking all the time, "what's going on now?" or "how are you now?" it's alot of stress!

Sassy- How' the trip! I can't wait to see more pictures!!! Cheeeeeese, I love cheeeeese! And I love gourmet food, you'll have to tell me course by course what you had - DH and I are foodies and wine-o's - DH's goal when we built our house was the wine cellar... well it's a closet that he converted into a cellar... but it's awesome! Down the street from our house is a Gelato bar - it's not open yet, but just you wait! I am totally excited for it! I heart Gelato! If you like Veal, I just made the bestest Veal dish the other night- it had Fontina and a weeeee bit of spinich, in a white wine reduction sauce, SO good and SOOOOOOO easy! (Lucky break on AF, huh! That is fantastic, I hope mine is late too!) Send some late AF vibes to me, would ya! Thank GOD that BIL is safe for a while - that is sadly probably the place for him right now.

Robbo - Don't worry they (meaning the OTHERS- the other sisters that is) quickly changed my name to Mel, I mean Melissa or even Goodness forbid Melissa112 is too much to type. :lol: I like Robbo, sort of makes you the Genius of all.

Wanna- Let them eat Cake Donuts! Heck Ya!!! Do it! Do IT for me!!! I am totally jealous, and you should eat and enjoy! That is my 10 cents... and yes it's ten, I cost more than 2 cents! You'll be looking very pregnant soon enough! Oh and your comment, looking like you ate too many donuts made me spit out my Diet Coke... that was hysterical! I love all those baby shows, but I can see why your husband thinks they would make you worry about things, but your debating argument can be that you would like to be edumacated! :wink: Oh and a banana a day will stop those leg cramps in their tracks! I get them all the time, and not from being pregnant... but when I eat a banana that morning, no cramps! I hope you like bananas! And on the McDreamy front... uh, Meredith, you or ME! :lol: I watch Grey's on Friday's because of my Harrison date on Thursdays- so we'll have to talk about this barwhore situation! :evil: I don't like her already! (and she's signed on for 3 episodes next season so far... me no likey!) Might be another use for Redonkulous!

Fee- I wish you wouldn't worry so much about the baby! But know that I totally understand, I mean WE as IVF'ers work so hard to have a baby, and worring every step of the way is something we have to do, because we can't just snap our fingers have alittle s3x and bada-bing-bada-boom be pregnated again... but remember that you worring affects Noggin, so deep breaths, do some Yoga, be one with yourself and Nogin and you'll be good to go! (again, another 10 cents...)

Meg - I hope your garage troubles are over! And I totally agree with Vicky you should totally plan your scans and appointments on the same day as Fee, as it would make our lives easier! Thankyouverymuch!

Patie - How are you doing, sweetie! I must hear more about this magazine! Can I get a copy?

Ang, Coco, AMY!!! Where are you?? I am about to send out the dogs!

So my day started off nicely, DH kissed me 27 times this morning, because he lurves me! :D And then asked me if I wanted to go to Starbucks becasue yesterday they forgot to put the espesso in my coffee! It was milk and caramel! YUCK! But I said, Na, I had a lot of work to do for the wedding we have this weekend... so we got to work, I started organizing my desk and going though files, making copies, calling vendors, I have paper spewed all over my desk, and then Harrison and his daddy come in to talk to DH and I start moving the paper clips all away of his reach because he like them and then the stapler, and as I move the stapler out of his reach it slams into my brand spanking new coffee mug and it slams against my desk onto the floor, and then the full cup of coffee goes all over my files my desk, my chair, my everything! It's a mess!!! Should have gone to Starbucks - that's what I get for not having my Diet Coke this AM! Arrrgggg!

Okay that's my mini rant!

Jello made - Check!
Tray Table for bathroom office - check
New book ready to read - Check!
Clear liquid diet ready - check!

Ready for prep! Mentally NO! Happy Sunday to me! :?

Wow, this has been a really busy post today. It seems like we go in spurts, huh. Everyone must be really chatty today.

Sassy--Great to hear from you. Crazy about your BIL. Jail is probably the best place for him! And don't sweat the gellatos--you're only on vacation for a short time so enjoy it and pay the price later! (That's my theory, anyway. Maybe that's why I'm always about 10 pounds overweight!) I don't have a cute nickname for the baby. I've picked out a name for her, but am trying not to tell people (I'm not good at secrets so we'll see how that goes) so in my head I call her by that name, but otherwise I just call her "baby" out loud. It's my homage to Dirty Dancing! (Nobody puts my baby in the corner!)

Vicky--I agree with the other girls. It's nobody else's business. I found the best thing to say was a simple, "Yep, we're trying and praying and we'll let you know when there's news." People usually (USUALLY) respect that! Good luck with the bc! Doesn't it just seem so backwards that you have to take bc to try to get pg? Life is crazy. When exactly do you leave for Argentina?

Fee--I think we both go in on Monday for our next visits? Is that true? Of course, with the time difference you'll be there before me. Damn, I wish I lived in Australia!

Wanna--Hope the Ivory soap helps! I'd never heard that one before. I've been lucky so far and haven't had any leg cramps. I have heard that lack of potassium causes it, but it sounds like you're all over that! BTW, thanks alot now I'm totally craving donuts. Gaaaaah!

Mel--27 kisses? How sweet is that. I'm at the stage in my pregnancy where I hate my dh. Well, I don't really hate him but everything he does annoys the piss out of me. I guess it's the hormones. Hopefully it'll go away soon....He's been pretty understanding but even that makes me want to slug him. Not good! I'm sorry about the clear diet thing. It just keeps getting better and better, huh?

Okay, I know I missed people but I've got to take a break! Geesh, this is crazy when everyone posts at the same time!
