It has been awhile. I am using my husband's little netbook because my laptop died on me. I have been so empty without it. It has been so great being able to read and catch up on your blogs. And I have to say I am a little blogger has been so long since I have bared my soul with this community. Well, let's see. Where to begin. I just want to say to many of you who got a BFN this month, I was watching the new Karate Kid 2010 version.  I thought it was not so good, but one line from the movie made me think of all of you. Mr. Han, the kid's teacher say's to him:

"You have taught me very important lesson, Xiao Dre. Life will knock us down, but we can choose whether or not to stand back up. "

I don't know what happened but I started weeping. You all are so strong going through these procedures for months, and sometimes years!! YOU never give up! And some of you, have such grace about you. I am so proud to be part of this community.

As for you all with BFP!! Wow!! Congrats!! I am so happy for you..and you give me strength and hope!!

the latest with me:
I got my period this month. I actually thought for a couple days after I was a week late that maybe my husband and I made a baby!! I started going to that happy place. You know the relieved that the hormones and money was not a factor in starting a family.  Nope! That was short lived. My period arrived. I think I handled it pretty well. Only a few casualties. Oops. I can not help it. Well, I think everyone understands, I am on edge lately.  I am not doing the hormones yet:( I hope March will be my start to the hormone journey. It all depends if money is coming in. Unfortunetley money is a huge stress behind my IVF process. 

Besides the lack of IVF beginning, I think I am getting a little lost within it. I find myself stuck on what to say to friends and family when they ask me what is new with me. Besides the baby urgency and emptyness, I feel there is nothing else.  That makes me think, I may need to get  a life.  But the reality is that all my friends and family have kids or have just recently announced their pregnancy. HMM...and the other friends, we complain together that we are not pregnant and everyone is telling us they are pregnant. It is kind of funny. I am not sure why I laugh about it, but it is kind of hilarious!! I wonder if there is any comedians and funny movies about this.

Good things, a family relative who needed to get into rehab has finally checked in, way past due but better late than never!! I am nervous for this person, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that the seed is planted and this person gets some healing done quickly!

My health...I am going in to the lab to get my blood taken tomorrow. I am checking on my thyroid. I really hope it is around 1 so I can start the IVF process. I am also going to check if I am immune to toxoplasmosis. My cat was tested and he does have Taxosplasmosis. Which means, it is not good to be around his litter while I am pregnant. That makes me really nervous. 

My cat is a major stress for me regarding having him around me when I get pregnant. Not only when I am pregnant though. When the baby is born, I do not trust my cat. He is an indoor cat and he is the king of everything. He also has a temper all of a suddenly. Most of the time he is a lovebug and just wants to cuddle. But then, all of sudden, he bites...hard. I do not want him harming my child. I do not know what to do. I get so mad every time he bites me or scratches me. I love him though. He has been my baby for 9 fun years. He has been through so many hard times with me and my husband. I do not know, I guess one step at a time. 

Anyways, I guess that is enough for now. I hope you all are having a great weekend.



  1. great to hear from you again. and you sound like you are coping well enough. The damn waiting really gets to us, doesnt it. and money is the bain of all evil. damn it!

  2. Hi, stopping by from ICLW.

    "I find myself stuck on what to say to friends and family when they ask me what is new with me. Besides the baby urgency and emptyness"

    I completely understand what you mean. I have to stop myself from talking about it all the time (with my mom, and the friends who know) I feel like I've become such a boring person lately because it's all that's on my mind. I think I need to get a life too :)

    Fingers crossed for this upcoming IVF cycle. I hope the month passes quickly for you!

  3. I reckon cats are more scared of babies than they are of cats. With 4 cats we bought a little mesh tent for the cot to discourage investigation, and didn't have a single issue. Best of luck with the upcoming cycle - happy ICLW!

  4. That movie quote it is great. It sums up this community perfectly.
