Totally Random but.....
So yesterday I found out that two friends are expecting their second child are due a day apart from each other....all while I am enduring my 2 week wait! aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh. Well, I find out in groups of three so here is to hoping I am lucky #3!

Just an update, I went in for blood work this morning and my numbers are looking good. Estrogen is about 1860 and progesterone was like 360 or something like that. The Dr. doesn't want me to do anymore HCG injections which is good because my hormones are doing their thing. I totally had this whole waiting thing under control and out of my head...until I got a call with my results and was told my Beta (pg test) would be Thursday....I thought I had until next now of course I am thinking about it...I thought my girls weekend would be a good distraction to get me through the last few days but I guess I will have to occupy my mind some other way for 3 days. I am so not looking forward to the long wait on Thursday afternoon, last time it felt like an eternity!
I have been unusually tired the last few days, had a dizzy spell on Saturday, go from full to hungry in no time at all- I actually finished ALL of my dinner when we went out the other night which is totally unheard of! I even wanted Tacos & had them for breakfast this morning. But I am trying to not read into it all and get too excited, don't want to get my hopes up again.

So here is to lots of praying over the next 72 hours!

Blizzaster 2011

Posted by PicasaFebruary brought us a whopping 20 inches of snow, the third worst blizzard in recorded history. I was left with 2 extra days in the house and I took full advantage of the extra time, I began a
project and tried to be productive but we all know how that goes.
Just a few side notes about the blizzaster 2011.

1. We had a piece of siding torn off of our house
2. I swear our patio door almost busted from how strong the wind was, it was flexing bad
3. I decided to venture out 3 hours before the projected start time, who knew that the weather men would be right and the storm even hit a few hours early, leaving me to drive home in a bit of it, FUN!
4. There were a ton of cars left stranded on LakeShore drive due to a bus that jackknifed. I would not have wanted to be one of the people stuck out there, scary! I heard a story of a husband who drove as far as he could to get to his wife on LSD, walked on foot when he couldn't get any farther and looked in every car window until he found his wife who was stranded because she was out of gas!
5. Our HOA shovelers informed us the next morning that we had a pile of snow on our front porch that reached well over the top of the door, taking him over an hour just to shovel it out!
6. An ambulance got stuck in the snow drift in our neighborhood, 2 plows almost got stuck trying to get them out
7. Closed area schools for 2 days, I can't remember the last time we had 2 snow days in a row!

Wednesday Words of Wisdom

"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."

Round Two

I didn't blog about my first round of I.V.F and I wish I would have so I could look back on it. So now that I am starting round two, I wanted to document my thoughts. I am three days in on my shots and set for retrieval on Valentines Day. I am excited to try again but am a little nervous about being let down. Last round after learning we miscarried, it was very emotionally straining on me and I am a little nervous about going through it all again. I am trying to remain positive that this will be our lucky month and we will get our little bundle of joy!
