Go Celine!

Celine Dion is expecting twins via IVF! She is like my favorite singer ever and I am sooooo happy for her! I love reading stuff like this in the news because I think it really makes people open up to IVF and the fact that IF can touch anyone.

Well this pissed me off...

Vent time ladies! So I'm at my in laws enjoying a cookout when my SIL proceeds to tell me what her cousin said about me the other day. Apparently this girl that barely even knows me but is friends w/my cousin said "I heard Jayme still isn't eating. I feel sorry for her baby." WTF! First of all I've never had an eating problem. I eat what I want, when I want. Lucky for me I just don't gain much weight. I've always been like this and my mom is the same way. I've gained 20lb so far in my pregnancy which is text book freaking perfect. I can't even believe that this chick said this about me and it pisses me off that she feels sorry for my baby! Like he isn't getting enough nutrients or something. I'd be damned if I were to deprive my baby of something because I don't want to gain weight. Who the fuck does she think she is? Of all that I went through to even get pregnant and she thinks I'd be worried about gaining some pregnancy weight. Whatever. DH says I shouldn't even worry about it, she's a moron, who cares. I just want to hunt her down and punch her in the nose & my cousin who supposedly told her this crap to begin with. UGH!

It's hump day!

Hi Ladies! It's Wednesday! Thank heavens. I'm off this weekend. 3 days! Woohoo! DH and I are going shopping Saturday for some maternity jeans & shelving for our little guys closet. After that the room is pretty much done. There isn't much on the walls but I figure that will come in time. I'm 29 weeks today! I know you ladies are wanting a belly pic. I PROMISE I will post my 30 week one next week. I had a OB appt on Monday and things are looking good still. No problems other than the groin pain. Doc said he's probably just laying head down pressing on a nerve. Our next appt is June 7Th & we get an u/s! Yeah! Can't wait to see his cute face again! Next Thursday we have our first labor & delivery class! I'm really excited! I can't believe how fast everything is going. Oh an my boobs have started leaking Colostrum, which is a premilk that the baby will feed off of until my milk comes in. They have been hurting pretty badly so I figured it was coming. I now get to wear the lovely breast pads in my bra! No more boobie touching for my hubs!

Our A/C is fixed! Ahh thank god. Apparently the fan motor broke. It cost $245.00 to fix but man was it worth it! There was no way I was going to spend another night in this house w/out it. It was up to 87 in my house at one point. I ended up sleeping in nothing but my underwear on the couch. Our couch is leather and man was my sweaty body sticking to it! I'm sure it was a site to see!

Hope all is well w/you girls!!

I am getting so hot

I'm gonna take my clothes off! Yep that's right... I'm rapping that song. The a/c in our house has decided to stop working on the hottest damn day of the year so far. The first day I broke down and turned the damn thing on. OMG I am miserable. Its currently 85 degrees in my house and just typing is making me work up a sweat. I'm sitting here in the shortest pair of pj shorts I own and my shirt rolled up under my bra. This friggin sucks. I really hope the a/c guy can get here soon or I'm getting a hotel for the night!

Accomplishment!

Wow I feel such a sense of accomplishment this weekend! I had to work yesterday, which sucked! Our computer system was down 1/2 the morning & on a weekend... customers were not happy that we couldn't give them balances! Oh well I enjoy a good bitching on occasion =) Anywho... so after work I got my house clean, did some laundry and even got a nap in before going out to dinner w/the hubby. After that we came home and played C.rani.um. Fun game if you've never played. Your supposed to have at least 4 players but DH and I play together just for fun. Today we slept in until about 9 then went to Ko.hls to get me another pair of maternity jeans. Yeah, they have NO JEANS! Not one pair. Just shorts & capris. I don't wear either because I hate my legs. So it looks like I'm stuck w/the one pair that I actually like until we can get out of town in the next few weeks. After Ko.hls we went to Wal.Ma.rt and did some grocery shopping & officially completed our Baby Registry! I'm go glad! I feel so much better knowing that I have everything on there that I need and if I don't get it at the shower I can just go down my list and get it myself. DH pretty much finished the nursery this weekend as well. All we have left to do is get the shelving for the closet. I really want to get the closet organizer thinger that has shelves & bars to hang stuff up. I think it will help keep stuff organized and give us more space as his closet is pretty small.

I'm feeling pretty good most of the time. My sciatica has been a lot better this weekend but I now got this aching groin pain. The OB nurse said it's just because he is so low and it will most likely keep getting worse. As soon as I get off here I'm hooking myself up w/the heating pad & watching a movie! I passed my glucose test! Thank heavens. Also I wanted to say thank you so very much ladies for the BF advice! I signed up for a BF class at the hospital so I'm really looking forward to that. I registered for the Playtex drop in bottles. I've heard the best stuff about them so hopefully he'll like them!

About his name... as of right now it is COLLIN! It could change but that has been what we've been calling him for about a month now so I'm pretty sure that's what we are sticking with. We need to finalize it though so I can order the wooden letters for his room!

Hope all is well for you wonderful ladies! Summer is almost here & the flowers are a`blooming! There's something about it that always puts me in a good mood.

Updated on me & baby

Hi ladies! How's everyone doing today? Hopefully the nasty storms have missed everyone and your homes are still intact. It's been rainy & windy here but haven't had any major damage. My poor yard is one soggy mess though! DH is starting to get pissed because he can't get the landscaping done. Getting the landscaping done for the year is his main goal, then finishing the nursery & then onto the bathroom. He's starting to get stressed. He's a great carpenter though so I know he'll get it all done & it will be perfect! Speaking of stress... I'm really stressing about finances. I never realised how much daycare cost. We will be paying the same amount in daycare a month as we do for our house payment! Holy crap! We have him signed up at a daycare here in town, just down the road from us but we are thinking an in home daycare would be better and cheaper so we are looking into that as well. The one thing I hate about this daycare is that I have to pay whether he is there or not. That sucks. I have every other Tuesday off and plan to keep him at home w/me and have mommy/son time and still have to pay for him to be at daycare. I know they have to do it that way but... most in home daycare's don't do that. So far everyone I know of that babysits is full so I'm on a list that goes out to everyone in the town that is registered. Ack. Hopefully someone good comes up. I'm absolutely terrified at going back to work and leaving him w/strangers.

Had my 27week apt today. Baby is doing great. H/B was great. My belly is measuring at a perfect size they say... even though they didn't actually measure it? Weird. I took my glucose test but wont hear back if we passed or not for a few days. That liquid is gross. We start going every 2 weeks now. I'll have another u/s at 31 weeks. So exciting! I can't believe how fast this has gone by. I've gained a total of 17lbs so far! Right on track according to the books. Seems a bit high to me though. Oh well I'd rather gain too much than not enough.

I bought a nursing cover yesterday at a maternity store here in town. It was 20% off so I couldn't pass it up. DH is kind of being an ass about breastfeeding. He thinks it's weird that I will just start breastfeeding if we are somewhere and thinks I should pump. I do plan to pump, actually I wont have a choice once I go back to work but I do plan to breastfeed the majority of time while I'm at home. I'm going to take a breastfeeding class but right now I'm so nervous about it. I have so many questions and concerns. For those of you that did pump, what kind of pump did you use? Did you buy or rent? What kind of bottles did you use? I'm starting to freak a little.

Update on my work friend- her HSG came back great. No blockage. Her IUI was canceled Saturday. Yeah canceled. She is going to a GYNO here in town (moron) who thinks he is an IF doctor. He put her on clomid and had her come in Saturday- CD14 for an u/s, her IUI and THEN GIVE HER HCG? WTF... HCG after the IUI? What a dumb ass. I'm smarter than him. Anywho... so her follies were only at 15mm so he told her to come back next month and they'd up her clomid dose and try again. HELLO! I've never O'd on CD14 w/or w/out meds. He should have had her come back in a few days for another u/s not just cancel her. I'm trying to remain grounded and offer her the best advice I can w/out upsetting her but really... I wish she would see an RE instead of wasting her time w/this quack. She wont be able to get on our ins at work until Nov so hopefully then once IF is covered for her she will move on to someone who knows what they are doing. Poor girl. Her hubby is in the military and wont even been home next month or all summer for that matter so now she's pushed back until Aug or so. GRRR.

So I've blabbed enough & this got really long. Sorry! Hope you are all doing well. Love you girls & praying for you daily!

Prayers for friends

Crazy to think that when I was going through my IF treatments I didn't have a IRL friend that I could talk to about my feelings and what was going on w/my screwed up body. Now I know so many people going through IF and I hate it. It just isn't fair for this to happen to any of us.

My "fertile friend" that I have talked about many times has been diagnosed w/MTHFR. She had a miscarriage many years ago before she was TTC at about 11 weeks. A few years later she decided she was ready to become a mom (right when I started TTC) and got PG on her first try and now has a happy, healthy 2 year old daughter. She started TTC for #2 around Jan and has since had 2 m/c. All of the times I was so mad at her for trowing it in my face how fertile she was I feel so bad about it now. It just shows that you never know... your 1st might come easy but you might not have it so easy the next time. I do hope the meds her doc is putting her on will help and she will be able to have #2 in the future.

One of my good friends from work whom I used to be best friends w/back in HS is having her first HSG tomorrow and her first IUI on Saturday. I'm so excited for her and her hub. She's very nervous right now and I just hope it works for her. Thinking back at all my failed IUI's and just how much it breaks you just makes me want to cry for her. I hate that she is having to deal with this.

I hope all of you are well... we are due for some good news around here for sure. It's been too long! I'm doing well. My UTI is cleared up thank god. Been having back aches and a pain down my right leg which I'm told is most likely the baby laying on a nerve. Little turd!

100 Days

My ticker says 100 days until my due date. Holy crap. This is going by soooo fast. I feel so unprepared. I have so much left to do & so much to buy!
