I am such a slacker! I need to go get some pictures printed at the library for class tonight, and here I am, surfing pg.org!! I wish DH hadn't broken our printer - life would be so much easier!
I've been trying not to get my hopes up about getting pregnant, but now that I know the OB's going to see me, I am starting to get excited again. I really hope our only problem is that I have irregular cycles and nothing more! DH thinks I should call them on the 20th and make sure that the PA put in my referral. I think she was intimidated by me, because I knew so much about my body and the reproductive cycle. It's weird, but some military docs hate it when you know a lot more than the average patient. I would think they would be happy that we're being proactive and learning. It's not like my information is half baked either, I really know what I'm talking about! Maybe I should've pointed her to pg.org so she could see for herself how smart the ladies on here are!
Well, I guess I better get ready and head out to the library! See ya!
I was getting ready to go to the library when I decided to take an OPK, just in case. Well guess what! It was almost positive! I took one a few days ago and it was a definite negative, so I think we're going to BD. I've been having O pains, so this might be it! I really, really hope so. Wouldn't it be awesome if I got my BFP before I had to go in to the OB?
In case you're wondering, I did go in to the library and get those pictures printed out. Now I just have to work on my paper!
I'm definitely having O-like pains! I read on peeonastick.com that you can have O pains as early as three days before you O, and even after. So DH and I BD'd tonight, just to be safe. I'm feeling pretty positive about it this time - I hope my feeling turns out to be right!
I am getting so frustrated with my body! Today I have pinching on my right side and cramping like AF is coming, and my boobs are sore. So now I'm really bummed. *Sigh* Oh well, at least I get to see my OB and get some help.
Today's cleaning day at our house. Yuck. I HATE to do anything housewifely, even though that's what I am right now! Poor DH. He's definitely the cleaner of the two of us. Blame it on right brain vs left brain! That's what I do!
Well, AF is still not here but I am definitely feeling weird. Stomach pains, gas and a feeling of 'wetness' down there even though my CM completely dried up. I just wish I knew what was going on with my body! Why did my OPK turn up positive and then my CM dry up??? WTH??? Stupid TTC. I am starting to remember how frustrated I used to get with it. Can't wait to go in to see my OB!
I got another brochure from an agency in the mail today. I am not sure we'll go with them, but I have heard a lot of nice things about them. And they're local, which is nice. The thing that ticks me off is that it took them a LONG time to respond to my emails, and that just makes me wonder if they're overworked and underpaid, you know? Also, they only work with agencies in two states, and one of them is LA. And recently, LA adoptions have been going slow because of Katrina. So we might just end up sticking with WACAP. They are definitely looking really good to me right now.
I have also been keeping up on my 'baby education'! Being that I have never had kids, sometimes it's terrifying to think that I have absolutely no idea about what's normal and what's not! I got a few free magazines and was reading them, and I feel a lot better now. I absolutely love American Baby (they had a promotion where I got a few free magazines from them - I might subscribe once we actually adopt or get pregnant). I also like Baby Talk, which was free at Baby Depot (Burlington Coat Factory). Btw, I love Baby Depot! Their prices are great!!!!!
Well, I better go get some chow. I am starving!! See ya later!
I have an OB appointment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's for March 30, 2006. Apparently they had called DH's cell phone a few days ago to try to reach me and he forgot to tell me. But I don't care, because I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT!!!!!!!!! I am so excited!!! Finally, we'll be making some progress!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, I went into town today to fill out two applications - one was for a preschool teacher job and the other was for a bank teller position. I really wanted the preschool teacher position, since it's more along the lines of what I want to do when I get my degree. Well, the lady said they were desperate for a teacher, and that my application looked good! She also said that she'd have to speak with her husband since they both owned the place, but she could say with confidence that they'd want me to start on Monday!!!! I am so excited!!! I am trying not to get my hopes up just IN CASE her husband doesn't want me to work there for whatever reason, but she said she pretty much runs the show so I can't help but be excited. Apparently most people who came in for an interview weren't qualified (you have to have some college) or they didn't want the responsibility of being a teacher, and just wanted to be a darcare worker instead. She said her first teacher quit to be with her husband (I didn't ask her to elaborate) and the second teacher got pregnant and decided she just wanted to stay home. The atmosphere there seemed really relaxed and they all seemed to be really friendly. I am going to look into getting CPR certified because mine expired in May. Yay!!! I am so excited! This means more money goes towards our adoption!!!
I spoke with my MIL last night, and she was so excited for me about the job! She is really sweet. She made me promise that I'd call her on Monday to tell her how my first day went. I'm so glad DH's family is so nice and warm. I am so lucky!
I have to go run errands in a little bit. Blah. I am so glad I am getting this job because I never seem to want to go do anything when I stay at home! I would rather just lounge around in my sweats all day.
Oh! It turns out I did O on either Friday or Saturday last week. I am now either 4 or 5 DPO today! Yay! We'll see how this 2ww turns out. Everything crossed!
I was formally offered the Preschool teaching job today!!! I am so happy! I start Monday. My classroom is really cute, but it could use some work. This weekend I'm going to spend some time making some charts, etc. to brighten it up a little more. I am going to have between 6 and 10 kids in my class at any given time. They also gave me a curriculum to follow as I need to. It's going to be so much fun! The owners' grandson is going to be in my class too, and he's a cutie. I got to meet him today. When I was leaving, he was playing on the swings, and he yelled, "Byeeeee!!! BYE!!!!" until I turned and acknowledged him.
We got Scrubs from Netflix so I'm off to watch that with DH! See ya!
I had my first day at my new job today as a Preschool teacher! It is so much fun!! We had a ball! The kids are awesome. I started out with 4 kids, and by the end of Preschool time, we had 6 total in the class. Tomorrow I should have one more. I did a Windy Spring theme in class today, and we talked about wind, and did a couple of activities with that. They are such cute little sponges. They just soak up everything!! We also had some free play time for them to just do whatever they wanted, and they were pretty good for the most part. My TTC friends are so sweet (especially Carrie! ), they posted a "good luck" message yesterday for me and today Carrie wanted to know how it went! I love them all so much!!!!
