Jayne- Congratulations on TWINS! I know you and dh must be over the MOON...maybe it will be one of each flavor!
Maria- How was your walk with the girls? So good chatting with you AND thank you for answering my question about bcp.
It's been a while since I've cycled with IVF but cannot wait to get everything started. We'll hear back next week on the ATTAIN program.
Leora- How are you doing? I know it seems ridiculous and I hate waiting until Friday to find out. Yes we finally got the loan approved YET now it all depends on the AMA test coming through AND hopefully this makes up for the FSH test since they drew b/w on day 10 instead of cycle day 3. All shrewed up but we shall see!
Gina- Hey girl, I was just thinking of you! Wahooo 61 days cannot get here any sooner!
WaitingKay- I'm glad that the surgery went well and you got to keep the ovary and couldn't be happier to hear about the twin catching up. This is wonderful news and I glad you are home now!
Pocos- Yeah and use that razor to cut somebody's head off! lol sometimes laughter is the best medicine! On Friday I struggled with anger management issues...FIrst my car would not crank, so I took what I learned from my mailman last Monday and used the boat battery to jump off my car. lol I really couldn't remember exactly how so I went online and learned the red is ALWAYS positive and after a few minutes of studying how to do this I took a chance and omg it actually worked, I got my car jumped off with my husbands boat battery. I was so excited that I nearly peed in my pants!
This was a big day for me since I know very little about cars and such... Anyway I pulled into the mechanic's shop and left it running while I had a mechanic pull it into the garage. Minutes later they confirmed it was the battery AND would cost me 204.00 for labor and the battery. I called my dh thinking that was alot to pay he couldn't believe what he was hearing. Told me we could go to Autozone and replace it ourselves for under 100 bucks. So I told the mechanic because we are budgeting money with our jobs and such we decided to take care of the battery...he then bills me for 44.00 I was like are you kidding me for what? He said for diagnosic testing, I said but it only took 10 mnutes he said had it been an hour he would of charged 88.00. So I call my husband back and he said just pay it and get out of there. He was fuming too and so I got my visa card out and the mechanic said times are tough for everyone right now. He went on and said my wife left me with 5 kids to feed and no child support some nights I'm wondering how we're all going to eat. I know he was trying to make me feel a little sorry for him..But I was so mad about the bill I interrupted him and said 5 kids huh you have no idea how much I would give just to have one kid do you? I spend thousands of dollars of fertility treatment and years of trying to start a family no sir it's not supposed to be this way either! He repsonded I'm sorry to vent to you ma'am. I know I was being out of my normal compassionate complex but I paid and said have a good day. I felt mistreated and robbed and when I told dh about the way he made me feel he first asked was anyone else in there, I said nope. He said good because I used to deal with this place all the time and it's only 5 minutes from his work but after this he's not ever stepping foot in there for sure now knowing they know about us. Oh crap I was so caught up I didn't think about how it would make dh feel. When I apologized for talking to a mechanic about our personal stuff he said you are more important then any mechanic so don't you feel bad. So that was my rampage for the weekend and dh got my car taken care of for a lot less! We had a warranty on the battery at Autozone. Dh really thought it was the timing belt and had me convinced it was since he had tested the battery at home it was fine. I don't know but someone at work once told me don't sweat over the small stuff, these things are only temporally.
