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. :)

Wasn't so bad...

Sorry to keep you all waiting, LOL. :)

It wasn't so horrible.

I got to school a little earlier than normal, and spent the time marking papers until our meeting time at 6:50. I was so nervous and worried, I was making myself sick to my stomach (would be nice if I could say it was morning sickness, but I am 99% sure it was just my nerves).

It was about 6:47, so I gathered my stuff up to head up to her room. I got there, sat down, and immediately confessed that I didn't have a unit, that I felt copmletely stupid and incompetent because I couldn't figure it out. LOL. She was good about it. She looked at what I did bring (my brainstormed list of activities), shared with me some more ideas and told me to plan the first week and then we could re-evaluate.

Anyway, then the rest of my teaching day was fine...

After school, I headed into Seattle for an acupuncture appointment. My appointment went well, and it seems this is my last appointment until my next cycle...Then, I went down to get my car from the garage, get to the window and it is 4:14 (the meter that scans your tickets, shows the time as you drive up...). At 4:16, the cost for my parking goes up by another dollar. It seems like I was lucky, right? Wrong. The parking attendant is not there..and she doesn't get there until 4:19, scans my ticket and insists that I pay her the extra dollar...I was not impressed. I argued with her for a second, but there were four cars waiting behind me, and she kept insisting she was gone for "2 minutes", so I gave in, but was very unhappy...LOL.

Then traffic was bad and it took me an hour to get home. I was hungry, and I had a craving for KFC (that happens like once in 5-10 years! LOL), so I drove that way, and assumed there was an entrance from the main road, but as I drive by, it said "exit only", so I missed it and had to keep going and gave up and went home. LOL. In the end, I made a frozen dinner and it was good and likely much better for me anyway.

Well, that was my day.

Kenya, you asked about why the Prometrium. I have a luteal phase defect which means that my body does not produce enough progesterone on its own after ovulation, so I supplement with the prometrium vaginal suppositories. They are messy, but they definitely do the trick! My luteal phase has gone from 8 days to about 16!
