Sprout | -2 days past EDD

I'm still here.

We didn't have the baby yet.

I am at work and if I could just get my co-workers to stop coming by my desk and asking, "no baby yet?" that would be awesome.  But they won't.  It's annoying for me especially since I still have a baby in my belly, but from what I understand it's especially annoying for my husband since he doesn't have the physical appearance of a pregnancy with him daily.  His response is going to be, "I'm here and decided that it would be best to be start out as the absentee father..." They'll love it but maybe stop asking him about it if he starts there.

The comments and things surrounding him not arriving are much more annoying than the fact that I'm still pregnant.  I'm really okay with it.  Seriously.

I know that I'm just prolonging the inevitable, but we chose to be here and we are.  This week will answer some more questions for us and we'll see how things have changed.  I'm hoping that something has changed, but you just never know.

I see my dr. today at 4:10pm.

More updates to come as I have them...

Happy Monday!

ha! yes, this. why do people ASK?! if you're at work you clearly have not had a baby. yet another instance where I think people are just trying to say something to you without thinking about it and out comes something stupid.

one woman at my office had the gall to say she was so sad and upset that I hadn't had my baby yet. really lady? really? you say that to a hugely pregnant grouchy monster? I could have socked her. I guarantee I was sadder than she was.

That has to be the most annoying thing ever to endure those comments. I always got them before I was full term because I was so big. So nice. Good for you for going to work. I know lots of ladies who started their leave on their EDD, and then sat at home going crazy (and had less time to take off when the baby actually came). Going about your routine and keeping moving should help get things going. Sending good labor vibes your way...

People make the stupidest comments! Hello? Baby belly! Still here!

I'm thinking about you! I can't wait to see his little face and to hear what his name will be!
Oh, hang in there. And ignore those comments.

My favorite one was always, "OMG [insert look of amazement] you are STILL pregnant."

Shut it. :)

(So excited for you!)

I think you have a great attitude Jill! Keep it up!

I'm hoping for a very encouraging appointment!

Oh boy, I can only imagine the comments. My co-workers were horrible too, which is why I went on early maternity leave (days before my due date). I couldn't take it anymore - and they had already given all my work away to my 'fill-in', so I was bored to death on top of the annoying comments.

Hang in there!!!

You probably won't want to hear what I have to say...but I'll say it any way!

My sister-in-law went two weeks past her due date with her first child AND she had to be induced!

Hopefully this doesn't happen to you! I keep checking to see pics of little Edgar!

Hang in there!

Girl, I can't imagine how annoying the comments must be.

I'm sure everyone is just anxious to meet the little bugger ;)

No one more than his mama, I'm sure!!!

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 …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on webmd.com just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
