Fertility Update (today is it)

Saturday, August 25, 2007

Fertility update
So this is it, O day, I got my postive read on my OPK Kit and it is time to finally go in for IUI. I can only hope that this works, not getting my hopes up but hope that we get the BFP!!!

I went to the RE on Tuesday and the found 2 eggs on the right ovary nice and big and then 3 on the left that were smaller. Hoping Byron can do his thing today to get the IUI done. There is alot of pressure on him too to perferm on the spur, but considering all of what I have had to go through i'm sure he'll do fine.

So much is going through my head as we embark on this next step. My body is finnally cooperating with me. After a major panic attack and a dr calling me back to reassure me this postive means the world to me. I finally don't feel broken. PCOS is something of a pain, I have had to learn how to eat all over again which is good, lost 18# in the past 9 weeks and kept it off. I will work my butt off to do all that is asked of me if God blesses us with our miracle.

I can only have FAITH. We can help nature along the way but ultimately it is not completely in our hands but in God. I have hope and faith which is how it should be.

For all that read my blog thank you for your prayers and well wishes these past few days!! Hugs!

Sleep

Thursday, August 23, 2007

Do you get enough quality sleep and do you know that if you don't it will hinder your weightloss???

The more I read the more I continue to hear that if you don't have the qulaity sleep and enough of it, it can hinder your weightloss goals.

So each night this week i've been going to bed 15 minutes earlier...

  


Fertility Week is here!!

Wednesday, August 22, 2007

I had an acupuncture appt yesterday to prepare me for my fertility treatment this week. Byron had to attend as well to learn how to apply the acupressure on our treatment day. Today I had an appointment with my Reproductive Encronologist (aka as Fertility specialist) I had an ultrasound done to see how many i have produced with the fertility drugs. It was great I had a total of 5, 2 on the right ovary and 3 on the left ovary. The doctor feels I have a good chance with the two bigger ones on the right ovary vs the 3 on the left they were smaller. So once I get a postive read on my Ovulation monitor we go in for the IUI (insemination) which so far is tentivily set for Thursday or Friday.

Greener on the other side????

Saturday, August 04, 2007

Life is funny!!! Reading today's reflection really made me think alot. There is always peole who try or have to keep up with the Joneses instead of really apprecaiating what they already have. I have co-workers that it is about how much money you have in the bank, or what possessions they have, homes, upgrades etc.... They act happy in front of you but inside they are unhappy. It is because they aren't really filling their hearts and lives with nurishment they need for their soul.

Riches come in the forms of money, love, etc.

How rich are you??? I feel very rich, I have everything in my life I need, a loving husband, family, friends, pets, and just plain love life. I enjoy each day as best as I can, making the best decisions I can and leave the rest in GOD's hand. I know he will never give me more than I can handle. I know if it feels like their is no way out of a prob lem, he'll always open the door or window a crack so I can breathe and move on.

Take time and reflect of the riches you have in your life!!! I have!! I AM LOVED!

  


Pleasing everyone ??? YIKES???

Friday, July 27, 2007


I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

- Bill Cosby, comedian



How many of us try and make everyone happy but ourselves? I know I have fallen into this rout. It down right puts everyone first but ourselves!!!

Being married and or a caregiver to a family member it can be easy to fall into the rout of just going along and putting your feelings, needs and wants a side. Every so often I fall into this rout, but lately I am learning how to put myself up on top instead of below. I honestly believe that is why I am having success this time around with my weightloss. I have asked my husband not to eat in bed (he's a bedtime snacker-loves candy, cookies and little debbies). Drives me nuts because I smell it and want to eat sweets. So, he has kept his bed time snacking to a minimum. If you don't ask you may not get what you want. Learn to ask, all that can happen is a no or you'll get what you want. You wont know til you ask for the things you want. I had a hard time asking at first now it is getting easier. For some reason, I dig this thought I was being selfish for putting me first but a good friend of mine told me if you don't put yourself first who will, that only says to people you are not worth it. So I put me first, by loving me to do and get to my journey!!

Do you do that??
