Hey Ladies. Been MIA for awhile. Been trying to get the house ready and been anxious about tomorrow. I look forward to the transfer tomorrow. I am going to be on bed rest for two days. So Saturday at 11am I am done. We are staying up near the RE office since it takes 2.5 hours to get there. We are going to drive up tonight, and leave Friday morning. That way its not so stressful on us and we can take it easy. I will be able to catch up on all my personals then and I hope that you all have a wonderful day and I hope that you all are doing well. I think of you all everyday!

Julia you are in my prayers as well, I'm wishing you the best on your transfer tomorrow.

Blessed, I agree it is easier to spend the night at hotel with our long commutes. Friday will be here soon, I'm praying everyday.

lol Kerpupples so Vegas IT IS for the 15th wedding anniversary to renew our vows along with Leorira and her dh. Anyone else want to join us? How's the snow in the Rocky Mountains, I love Denver! Great name for a boy by the way. Since I got on names, I also like Anders from Anderson, and Carter but really need something unique. Not sure why I'm on boy names when I'd love to have a little girl, ok I'll settle for one of each lol. Someone please WAKE me up from daydreaming...really need to be grocery shopping sometime today! When I ask dh what he thinks about names he changes the subject but it doesn't stop me, ha the name will already be chosen, why does it seem easier this way. If I were 6 months along I would be stressing over a name, so what I decided to do is select 3 great names for a boy and girl put them in a box and let dh draw when the time is right!

I love coming up with baby names, but you know, I did that with both of my boys (except I was convinced that my youngest was a girl, so I only picked out girl names...hehehehe) but with my first, his name was going to be Christopher Michael ( I knew the middle name had to be Michael after my brother) and when he popped out, he sooooo didn't look like a Christopher, and the name Timothy popped in my head (not one that I would have EVER even considered) and he is totally a Timothy. So with my youngest, his name was going to be Ashley Marie, Sarah Michelle or, shoot, now I can't remember the other girl name..... even my doctor at 7 months along told me it was a boy, I told him that he was wrong.....so, HE pops out and i was really shocked....so I named him Matthew Steven, although i wanted to name him Andrew David (middle name after my x husband's brother, but he said hell no!) I am into the streamline names, although I have always wanted to name kids with different names...but never had the guts to do that. I always wanted twins and I swore that if they were boy/girl twins, their names would be Stephen Michael and Stephanie Michelle.....my husband thinks I'm smoking the crack pipe and said that he wouldn't be ok with me naming them with the same initials.....I think it would be cute, but now I couldn't do the Stephen Michael because that would be my current kid's middle names...hehehehe (minus the spelling of Stephen)...... i love to hear what people want to name their kids...it's fun. I about died one time when my friend told me she named her daughter Autumn Storm....which on it's own is super adorable, but the last name....Sancho.....think about those initials.......

Sunshine - and I love Florida! Did a co-op in Boca Raton in college and had a blast. Snow is here today! Looks like we could be in for an interesting winter.

Names - well if we have a boy he will be Colin Mitchell. We had already settled on that for a boy with DD. Now for her name, Morgan Stella, we didn't actually settle on that until the day she was delivered! So for another girl, we'd go through the same ordeal. I am partial to Samantha, Catherine, Audrey, Gemma, Phoebe, and Sabrina. DH is very very picky about girls' names, so we shall see! Oh, and I'm having premonitions of boy twins this time for some reason. Second boy name I like is Theodore Andrew, with Theo as a nickname.

Autumn Storm Sancho...oy vey. I am VERY conscious of initials when thinking about names!

Amanda~Sorry to hear about your mom. Wishing the best to you and your family. Cancer is never easy. Hope PET scan goes well.

Julia~ cramping is totally normal and can actually be a good sign because the embryos are implanting.

Leora~ I won't tell anyone. I know what you mean about the craziness part. It gets harder as each month passes. I remember walking with my friend at the zoo and we were both talking about how hard it was to get pregnant (we had both been trying naturally for 6-8 months) and that was almost two years ago. She got pregnant shortly after that visit and her little girl just turned one. Reminds me how long I've been "trying". And yes, everyone must see Vegas at least once. It's quite a place.

Sunshine~I think it's hilarious that your husband hides your sticks. Mine knows better... I would just run to the store and buy more. Men would never last a week with all of this stuff. My DH was complaining about his 3 days of antibiotics and his one blood draw. I was like... "you're kidding, right"?

Gina~Sorry to hear about your grandma. I'm an ICU nurse so I see a lot of family drama. Why is she peeing so much? Is she on diuretics?

Kerpuddles~Good luck on your retrieval. If you can't find "the help", moneyball is an excellent movie too. They just opened a new theatre by our house that has reclining chairs and a full service menu (alcohol too... no more for me though). Even a waitress. It's a fun date night.

Blessed~how many are you going to transfer? Good luck.

Laura~I'm with you on your friend's DD name. No good.

AFM; just got a call from the clinic and they have nothing to freeze. I was expecting it but it still makes me a little sad. I really hope this cycle works. Now I'm eating a gross plum because I'm constipated. Urrr.

Julia, yay you are officially PUPO girl, four sounds awesome maybe there will be twins brewing you never know, but if it's more then twins promise me you will ship me a bundle of joy. xoxo

Lauren- :lol: Autumn Storm Sancho, your friend's child would be scarred for life! I think it's funny how couples buy those namebooks for 29.95 and before you know it every other child is named Emma. I really wanted to use a family name but all of my SILs got first pick, but seriously I have 6 family members already named William so it's best to be orginal whatever that name might be. lol

kerpuppies- send me some snow and I'll send you boxes of sand...my whole backyard is more sand then grass oh well, that explains why you don't see much carpet but mostly tiled homes!

AFM, procrastinating on the cleaning, but I did make it to the grocery store. Forgot the turkey pan, texted dh... I'm not worth much right now. :)

Jayne- Well she's had lots of diarrhea along with that. It's uncontrollable. About a month ago she was turning yellow and a blockage in her bile duct was found. They cleared that out and that's when it started. She got her appetite back after year but still couldn't gain weight. She got dehydrated bad from going to the bathroom so much. Now they say she has congestive heart failure and she's leaking water out of her legs. That has stopped after several days. She's in the hospital with dehydration and now they say her bile duct is blocked again. She does have a cyst on her pancreas also but she doesn't want them to send it off for test. She's beat cancer twice, eye and breast, but that was 13 +yrs ago and being 89 that would be hard if it is cancer. This has happened all within a month. It's just crazy how she can't stop going to the bathroom and now she can't again.

Gina-I'm so sorry. Keeping you and your family in my prayers.

Becca-congrats on being PUPO.

Sorry for no more personals. Still trying to do my best. Keeping really busy at work. I started my Math tutoring this week. I haven't been in school since 1997 so I need to brush up on my Math before classes start on January 4th. I have an appointment with advisement on November 14th in order to choose my classes. I'm nervous but excites at the same time. It's going to be a challenge but I like challenges. This is a nice change for me. It's nice to think of something other than IVF for a change. I also spoke with my IVF nurse today. It looks like, as long as my Beta is zero on Monday, I will have the hysteroscopy, D&C, and endometrial biopsy on November 18th. Then the RPL blood work panel two weeks after that. I'll have a bit of a break from all of the IVF craziness for a while before our FET sometime in the befining of January. I'm sure that will be here before I know it. Right now we are trying to decide what to do with the kids for winter break. Thinking of possibly a 5 day cruise or going to New York. I'm really looking forward to getting away before we begin another cycle. We both need the break from all the stress. Emotionaly, I think we are both doing better. Time, faith, and our love are making this whole process easier to deal with. Still looking forward to meeting some of my Fall Board friends via skype. Ninde and I have communicated several times and I am so greatful for the friendship. Just in case anyone else is interested my skype name is tpmf143, just send me a contact request on skype and I will respond.

Sending you all my love,

Becca, Yes you let dh wait on you hand and foot, those embibabies are snuggling in. I hope the 2ww moves swiftly for you adn I will certainly be keeping you in my prayers.

WeHaveHope, it's really good to hear from you tonight! I am excited that you are taking classes to accredit you, Are you looking into Nurse Practioner? I received a postcard in the mail yesterday and it was driving school. Imagine that? I got a ticket last week for YIELDING at a stop sign, the cop just so happened to be there and siad he clocked me at 15mph. It was a $160.00 fine and I'm woderig if I might could get the ticket reduced if I went to drving school, I thought about just paying it but I know alot of other things I need to spend this money toward. I'm still in shock that I wasn't able to talk my way out of this one!

Ninde, Not at all because, everyone goes through emotions differently. I think my nurse was trying to tell me that after going through 7 miscarriages she became "numb" and didn't get attached to the idea because she was afraid of the same thing happpening again. I didn't tell you with all distractions of going through a divorce she found herself moving along fine in this particular pregnancy. It never makes any sense why things happen the way they do, but she went on to having a healthy baby boy. Maybe it was the distraction, maybe she was not worried about this pregnancy and her mind was sadly on the divorce. I would think the stress of something like this wouldn't be good for the baby, nobody knows. Later on she remarried and had to try several more years before having her second and third child. We ask ourselves if it was so hard the first time why do we want to go through it again? I think it's more about the resiliance, deeply we want whatever it takes to have a family. We never understand why it's so hard, but at the same time we realize that it's going to take more then we ever imagine to bring home a baby. Nobody can put a timeline on it, and it may take several attempts but we know it's worth every injection. Dh agreed that it was a grounded way to look at things, because we never know what can happen. Yes we want the best but unfortunately once you go through this you have a challenging time accepting that everything will be ok and truly enjoy every moment of being pregnant. In the back of the mind I know dh and I both will be terrified if we ever become pregnant again, and I don't think there is nothing anyone can say to make it easier to deal with these thoughts. We can only take it one day at a time and that's all any of us can handle right now. All I know is prayer can move mountains so I definately want to pray that we can let go of these feelings and try to move forward. What are your next steps?
