Almost time!

I'm getting excited about IUI #3! It will most likely happen next week some time.  I've been taking the Femara for 2 days now and I'm not sure if I'm having side effects or not.  I feel nauseous and very tired, which are some of the side effects, but who knows if that's why. As long as it doesn't make me feel like I need to be in a padded room like Clomid did, I'm fine! I realized that we'll find out if it took right before Christmas.  I'm hoping I'll have a Christmas miracle, because it will be difficult to get through the holidays if I don't. But, I need to think positive, so I won't dwell on that.  I'll keep you posted! :)

While I don't celebrate Thanksgiving the "traditional" way, I do believe it is a day to reflect on what we are thankful for.  I think those of us dealing with infertility and TTC sometimes get caught up in what we want so desperately, that we forget the good things we already have. (at least I do) So right now at this moment I'm going to concentrate on the things that I am thankful for...

  • C- He has been in my life for 10 years now and I can't imagine a life without him.  
  • My family- Even though I am very far from all of them, I know if I needed anything at all, they would all be there. 
  • My furry babies- They drive me crazy some days, but I love them. Yes, even Lucy :)
  • My job- I actually have a job that I like and work for an organization that I'm proud to be a part of. Do I make enough money? No, but sometimes money isn't everything.
  • My friends- I may not talk to them every day or even every month, but there are a few friends who have been in my life for awhile that always will be.
What are you thankful for?

*Not* trying not to get my hopes up

IUI #3 should be happening in a couple of weeks.  Everything feels very different this time. I don't feel as stressed or worried.  We are using a different donor and instead of taking Clomid, I'll be taking Femara, which has less side effects I'm told.  Everyone keeps telling me not to get my hopes up, but really that is impossible.  There is no way I can't get my hopes up.  If it doesn't work this time, I will be upset and I will cry.  These things are inevitable.  I think I stress myself out way more trying to stay "neutral".  So, I am done with staying "neutral" and am so excited for this IUI! I feel positive about it.  I also know that if it doesn't work, we can try again.  Cycle Day 1 should be around Thanksgiving.  Third times the charm right?

Wordless Wednesday

Brought to you by my aching ovaries...

Too bad he isn't ours. *sigh*...

Our "Wedding"

For those of you that don't know, I am a married lady now! I think we had the shortest marriage ceremony in history.  We got hitched in our kitchen. (Yes, I said kitchen. Don't judge us)   We were actually babysitting a friend's little boy too.  So, yes, C and I got married surrounded by a baby, a barking Lucy, and 3 confused cats.  It was very romantic.  All that being said, I am very happy and surprised that it actually feels a little different, in a good way. Here are some pictures:

C and our "witness". He is adorable. 

It's really legal, I swear. We have the license to prove it!

We had champagne to celebrate

The happy couple

The End...
