What does this week hold for us?

Okay, here's the plan.

Wednesday, I go in for an internal ultrasound with the probe (don't be jealous). If they can see that I'm ready to ovulate they'll give me the trigger shot (HCG or sub-q shot) which basically triggers your follicles to release the eggs. This works in the sense that you can accurately time the IUI or intercourse within 24-48 hours after the shot.

Meaning, Friday will be our day. We are going ahead with an IUI and how things are going to roll are that dh will get a sperm wash around 7:30am with his swimmers (keeping the good and getting rid of the bad) and then I'll potentially have my IUI at 9am Friday. We won't know anything up front, as we are told to treat this just as though we would've had intercourse. We wait out the two weeks and then we'll potentially have good news.

Just as a heads up, we will probably refrain from sharing any news, if any, for a handful of weeks just to insure that things went the way that they were supposed to be. If I change my mind, and I might... it'll be posted here. Thank you in advance for caring but not prying.

So, here's hoping that this is the last cycle that we have to endure... Here's hoping we will having baby in late 2009/early 2010. Here's hoping it's healthy and happy. Here's hoping that it's one and done, wouldn't that be nice! Here's hoping that our infertility journey is over...

As always, staying hopeful...

I know it probably doesn't mean anything and it's probably not what you want to hear, but I'm always thinking of you.

Oh my gosh, I am so hopeful for you two that this will be it! I will pray that it is. I'm totally out of the loop because for some reason when I tried to "follow" your blog it wouldn't let me so I've missed a bunch of posts. Now I have to go catch up but let me just say that I am "hopeful" right along with ya : )

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 …
