My Apologies....

I feel like I should start this off with an apology for the radio silence! Things have been incredibly hectic lately. I know, it's no excuse for leaving you in the dark for the last almost 2 months! So.... Let's get to the updates....

I survived (barely) my first Clomid cycle. Let me tell you, it was no picnic. Especially for my poor husband. I'm pretty sure he didn't know what to think of me. I didn't have the physical side effects that I've heard so much about, but man.... the emotional side was a trip! I cried at everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Let's get something straight here- I am NOT a crier. Well, unless it's 4 am and I've had several drinks. Then, you can probably get tears out of me. But Clomid turned me into a blubbering heap. I even cried at Super Bowl commercials. In my defense, the Budweiser commercial with the horse was pretty sad. If you didn't at least tear up to that one, you have no soul. Anyway, so I go through the cycle crying and bitching and being completely out of control of my emotions. And guess what? NO BABY. Sheesh. You mean I have to do this again?! Ugh. I guess it was a good thing (if that's even possible) that there wasn't a pregnancy, because I had to get a second varicella (chickenpox) vaccine for nursing school. Which meant that I had to wait a month before we could try again. So, we're at that point, and I went to the RE today, and start Clomid tonight! My poor husband. Let's hope he survives this round. I did buy him a book (at the suggestion of a friend). "What He Can Expect When She's Not Expecting." I will tell you that it is incredibly good advice. My husband said that it put things in perspective for him. If you and your significant other are at each other's throats over TTC, I highly recommend it. I read it myself, and I honestly enjoyed it. I learned a couple of things, too. So, that's where we are as of right now.... I will try to update after my appointment next week.

Wait, there's more, you say? Of course there is! Since my last update, we got a puppy! His name is Coco, we call him Glen Coco (think Mean Girls). He is a Chihuahua, but not the yappy kind. At least not yet. So far, he sleeps and poops and follows me around the house. He's my shadow. I LOVE him. I think he's exactly what we were missing. I also have been insanely busy with school. It's overwhelming at times, but I love it. I know that I'm working hard to make a great life for my family. Even if I do want to quit every other day.  ;) So NOW I think I've updated you on everything. Stay tuned, and keep the good baby juju thoughts flowing!
