I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

Quick Post

I just got home after a long day. A good day, though. :)

You may have noticed that last evening, AF finally decided to show her face. At 2:00 am she returned with a vengeance. Cramping worse than my good old high school days (and those were pretty bad). I was in so much pain, I eventually gave in and took an aleve so I could get more sleep.

When I finally got up for real, I had planned to write at least one of my papers before heading out for the door, only to realize that I had left everything I needed at school. So, instead, I just wasted time watching tv and catching up on emails.

This afternoon was the monthly SMC meeting. I didn't make it to last month's meeting because it was being held at a coffeeshop and I thought I would find that more difficult to socialize. (I am way too shy in big groups of people I don't know...) So, this was only my second meeting. I recognized many (most really) of the faces there from the previous meeting and got to meet a woman on one of my online buddy groups. I had a great time and left wondering again why it is that I get so nervous to go to these things. LOL. :)

At 2:00, I excused myself and ran back to the school to pick up the material I needed to write my papers. I also quickly marked two classes' assignments and then headed down to my aunt's.

My aunt has prepared baked goods for the teen shelter once a month for years, but is now having difficulty doing it because of the Parkinson's. So, I helped her decorate all the cupcakes and then taught her and my uncle how to access some bulletin boards for Parkinson's and registered them for a couple yahoo support groups for Parkinson's. She went to a naturopath on Friday who suggested a treatment of glutathione by IV. She had wanted me to find out what others had said about it...we found that most people did not suggest she take it. She goes back to see the neurologist tomorrow...I just hope they can find a medicine that she can tolerate. It is so sad that this disease is taking over so quickly.

After we learned how to use the internet, we went out for a wonderful Chinese dinner. The place was packed...I guess people went for an early Valentine's dinner? I don't know.

Now I am back at home and need to write TWO papers. OK, one is only a page, and the other only 3 pages...but the 3 page one is a research article evaluation, and I haven't found an article to evaluate yet....I better get to work.

OH, and I start 100 mgs Clomid tomorrow night...come on little eggies!!!!
