RE Appointment and other stuff

I can't believe I forgot to blog about this! I had my appointment last week and it went really well. The Dr. D thinks I have PCOS and I will be going in for testing for that on CD3 (assuming I'm not pregnant which seems to be a fair assumption at this point). I really liked her. She wasn't sure about the protocol followed by my OB/GYN office and asked about things that I had mentioned to my OB before and he just shrugged them off. She wants Mr.G to go in for another SA since his was a year and 2 doctors ago. He'll go in with me on CD3.

Driving over an hour to get to the clinic wasn't as bad as I expected. We got to eat Panera for lunch and if you know us you know that's a huge plus! :) I hope we can get this under control and I hope it helps me lose weight and keep it off!

I'm on a mission to change our lifestyle a little bit at a time so I don't send Mr. G into shock mode. I'm determined to be more earth friendly and in the process save money on products that I could make at home. I was going to start with making my own laundry detergent but that has been put on hold because I can't find one of the main ingredients ANYWHERE around here! It's so frustrating! I've also tried the Oil Cleansing Method and as crazy and off the wall as it sounds it's working GREAT so far!

I have a prospective job opportunity that I am interviewing for tomorrow afternoon. It's teaching piano lab at a middle school and it will be 1,000 times better than what I'm doing now. I've quickly become really frustrated this year with my schools and I just don't like teaching elementary music in general so this new job would be AWESOME.

I think that's about it!! :) Happy Hump Day! Friday's almost here!

New Favorite...

So there's this blog/website that I LOVE. She has tons of cool stuff on it. My favorite section is her cooking section. I've got baking down pretty well but I'm still working on the cooking side of that. I'm getting better but this recipe right here takes the cake. (pun intended). It was too good not to mention and the pictures in the recipe help me out SO much.

I brought a piece with me today to eat at lunch. Best idea I've had in a long time. I was going to send the rest of it to work with Mr G to get it out of the house but I may have changed my mind. Bringing a piece for lunch each day will help me survive the week.

I'm going to add a pic when I get home. I can't see them here. Lunch is almost over. Happy Monday everyone! :)

Cycle #24.

Going out to dinner with Mr.G.

Happy Saturday :)

Oops! :)

I have been neglecting my blogging!! Probably because all I do is whine and complain about IF, my incompetent doctor and the job I hate.

Labor day weekend we played parents with the little girl we borrowed last summer and took her to the zoo. It was a fun trip but I felt like I had ZERO weekend and have been exhausted all week.

I'm nearing the end of my 2 week wait. My temps dropped then went up again 2 days in a row but I got a BFN. Today they went down again. Looks like cycle 24 is right around the corner.

I've been thinking about adoption a lot. I know it will in no way take the pain of infertility away but I feel like it would at least take the edge off. Plus I'm not a big gambler. I feel like we're spending money on things that aren't certain (IUI, IF treatments) that aren't going to guarantee anything in the end. If we took that money and put it towards adoption we would at least be working toward something more solid. I need to pray about it more and talk to Mr. G about how strongly I've started to feel about it too. I've always wanted to adopt but I had just always dreamed of having my own first THEN adopting. Maybe God's plan is different than what I had in mind(imagine that! story of my life!).

I don't know how it suddenly go to be 11:30 - I feel like it was just 10:30 so I'd better get to sleep. Yay for Friday and the weekend to come! :)
