P is for progesterone

I am terrified about the progesterone shots!!  I should be having my retrieval at the end of the week, and I know those big nasty needles are coming.  I dont want them :(  

I went to the doctor today and I have a ton of growing follicles.  They took my follistim dose way down.  There is some concern of OHSS so say a prayer for me that all goes well.

Cycle Day 1

Well today is cycle day 1..again.  This time is different though because this is THE CYCLE DAY 1!!  This is the last time I will be doing this!  I have struggled alot to get to this point and now  I don't know whether I should be happy or scared or optimistic or sad.  I just really don't know how to feel.  I know that I do feel scared.  I know that I do feel pressure to get this right (and I really dont have any control over it).  I also feel like the rest of my life depends on what happens in the next month.  Oh I think I am going to be sick...

I know that I only have a few people that even read my blog..and that is ok :)  So you few that are there, please say a prayer for me tonight.   Pray that this IVF cycle goes smoothly.  Pray that the end result is a child for us.  Pray that I make it through this without losing my mind.   I really need the prayers.  Thank you so much!!

O is for Obe

He is our newest edition.  He is a Chihuahua that Janine bought me at Mother's Day.  We love him, but he is driving me crazy!!  I cant get him trained to pee outside.  So he brings our animal count up to 4 (2 dogs and 2 cats) and we are not getting anymore.  I don't know if I will even keep him if he doesnt soon learn that peeing on the kitchen floor is not ok!!!  He is such a beautiful boy :)

Waterfalls and Serial Killers OH MY!!

The boys went to camp last week in the NC mountains.  When we went to pick them up we stayed for awhile and looked at all the beautiful scenery.  This is a waterfall that we stopped at to let the kids swim.  It was amazing..and very cold in July!  We also had to drive through the town in SC where there was a serial killer last week.  It made national news (so you may have heard about it) and we didnt even know he was that close until we got home (he was about 45 minutes from where we live!!).
