I just read your update and yes it's sooo hard when "we're left in the dark" with no explanation. But the fact is you are not giving up and that makes you so much more determined and more likely to make this dream happen! I sincerely wish you all the best and I know your doctor thinks it's NOT over yet either. I never heard how many eggs were retrieved and fertilized in this last cycle. Although maybe he can change up your protocal to help you have better response with stimulation i.g. helping you create more eggs for PDG testing purposes. We never know what's going to happen, but I can say ALL this IVF cycling makes us so much stronger! You keep your head up high and know we are right here supporting you every step of the way. x
I'm so sorry to hear about your "uncle", I know you wish more then anything to be there for the service tomorrow, but you will be there in presense and all those memories you will always hold so close to your heart and that is what he would of wanted.
It can't be that much longer until they get all the paperwork with dh's retirement finalized. Aren't you glad you guys didn't wait until the last minute to apply? Nevertheless it sounds like this has put you through toooo much chaios already, I will praying the rest of way goes smoother, I guess that's why we plan these things early to allow for hiccups to be resolved. Like you said dh has already put in 20 yrs of service so once the details get worked out you both will be on your way! Certainly planning this retirement far ahead as much as you have will help make this move possible. And once you get your house, you'll be planting a garden with dh in your big backyard with a muscadime running along the fence-line!
Kynlee, Sounds good certainly looking forward to hear what your RE says tomorrow, hopefully it will reconfirm that you're cycling with me in May!
Today dh asked me if I wanted to take a weekend trip up to Chicago for a 2 hr workshop and get paid $200 on APril 15th. While we were looking at flights I asked him is Chicago anywhere close to Rhode Island? Oh well it was fun for a moment but knew it wouldn't break even, even for a one day trip. He was trying to find a way to earn some money while taking me to a Jazz Club all in the same day.lol knowing him he'll find a way! mentioned we could ask my mother to book the trip but he's not kin with stand-by lol too many not-so-good experiences with airport layovers and not to mention it's also Spring Break so maybe not? Then again who knows what will be going on in 2013 hopefully we'll be too busy with our bundles of joy! Now this makes me want to go to Chicago even more now wish he hadn't even told me about the chance to go! lol he can be so spontaneous at times... We had the contractor out this morning extending out the patio on both sides of our home so I should be a little more conservative with money I guess but distractions are nice aren't they! And to top everything that's happened today...in the business district with all the air conditioners running, a transmitter was blown downtown so dh's campus where he works closed at 9 so he got to take today off and we spent the morning planting more cantaloupe as the contractor poured concrete. Never like anyone working on the house with me just there so it was so good to have him home.
Have you called your nurse to see what they recommend taking for heartburn, that is the best thing you can do in this case.
Keep resting and reading a novel to help the time pass by.
Interested in hearing more about how you are doing overall. Any new job perspecitives? My dogs are going stir-crazy out in the garage as we allow the concrete to dry, but I need someone's decorating expertise! We had a big birthday bash for dh last weekend and Sara (Annabelle's mom) brought over her patio table and chairs for us to borrow since we had 12 guest. I might take advantage of eatting outside while my mom is down next week visiting us, so I have to figure out a scheme. Have you been entertaining much lately? Anyway I almost forgot to tell you on my way home from picking up dh's birthday cake last weekend I stopped by my old neighbor's new place and picked up Annabelle so we could have a little girl time together before guest arrived. She loved her new pillows custom-made for her bedroom and I found out her mom had taken back her danisk black and white duvet cover since it was more beige-looking then white...so anyway will have to research the internet again since it's so expensive to make a comforter, already tried well over $200 just for material alone.
So anyway she told me how she's missed her old neighborhood I could imagine it being weird coming back to familar surroundings, I told her she will always be welcomed to come over here anytime. She showed me her dress she picked out for our party. I was teary-eyed it was the same dress (brown and teal) I had made her last summer! (I was surprised it would still fit, but her mom had asked me to make it a size 12-14 so she could grow into it.) She helped me so much around the house! I mean she cleaned the sliding door and the front window the told me not to look that she had a surprise...When she finally showed me she had scrubbed the vinyl siding (from pollin) and hosed it down...I was so amazed her OWN mother was more amazed she said she can't even get Belles to make up her own bed! lol I never seen a 10 yr old work so hard and here's the thing I never had to ask her to do something my husband normally does, I brought him out there and smiled so big, said he was so proud. Earlier that morning her dad brought over the lawnmower they had borrowed last Fall and he ended up mowing our yard! I must say dh HAD a very NICE birthday especially to get out of doing yardwork! I got him a pair of blue jeans, a teal long sleeve button-down with sky-blue, gray and teal striped tie, bown loafers with a fossil watch. His friends from the college got him a tackle gift card lol...with a birthday card that had us laughing so hard pictured this a 60 yr old women in her bikini. The card read "it's your birthday your fantasy- not mine!"
More personals to come, I honestly think I wrote you ladies a novel today! I did get a contract today for the IVF Attain program
but waiting until mid-April to sign the loan paperwork (to save us money on monthly interest). Anyway Belles just texted me.
