would you look at that...

... their swimming, they are really swimming! All over the place too! It was wild.

So yesterday I went for my post coital test yesterday. It wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I imagined an internal ultra sound with a probe. I saw the probe, I wasn't thrilled with the thought of that going up inside of me but I thought I would just stick it out. Dr. Schmidt came in, he confirmed that we had intercourse either the night prior or that morning, I laid back and it literally felt like a pap smear. He (the doctor)was in and out before I knew exactly what he was doing and he never touched the probe. (ha, another perfect opportunity to say, that's what she said? I think so.)

He walked out with a syringe of sperm/cervix mucus, told me to get dressed and then open the door. I followed his direction thinking, seriously, that's it? He walked me down the hallway and into this little room with a microscope and a very tiny t.v. screen and there it was! Little swimmers all over the place as well as excellent movement and nothing slowing them down unless they were tired themselves. My cervical mucus wasn't stopping them either.

So, I asked, what's the next step? He said I need to get my blood drawn (which I did yesterday following my appointment) and wait for those results. I was getting a thyroid and a prolactin test done and luckily I actually got a tech that could draw blood smoothly! Once I have those results, he'll know how to move forward. The results should be back to ORM in two days, so here's hoping I hear something toward the end of this week.

In the meantime, he said that he could tell I hadn't ovulated yet so to keep practicing and we'll be in touch.

Again, nothing to report or prevent us from becoming pregnant. I've been thinking about whether or not we aren't doing it right, but we had confirmation yesterday that we are! We just need to keep practicing. I'm glad to hear that the CM isn't holding us up because if that were the case an IUI would be out of the picture but currently it's still in the running, just no confirmation on that procedure yet.

Here's to a week of practicing...

... and hoping the swimmers find the egg!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
