Where is everyone? Taking fun summer vacations? Swimming in the pool? It's been so incredibly hot in Texas, you just can't do anything. I think we are on the 27th day of temperatures over 100 degrees. So many people have moved on to TTC already or are already pregnant. Who's still here and what's everyone up to? I think we need a check-in post. The chat thread no longer exists.
I've just been working, studying, and planning the wedding. We are going to Austin this weekend for our engagement photos and to visit some good friends. I can't wait to get away and drop the dog off with my dad for a few days. My dog has been horrible lately. The other day she ate broken glass, I nearly had a heart attack and cried for hours, the vet told me there wasn't a lot that could be done. She is fine though, intestines of steel that pooch. But she has just been unruly lately getting into everything and lots of accidents.
And on the baby front....I'm really getting the baby bug lately. My friend, who I work with and sit right next to, is 35 weeks pregnant and we talk babies everyday, all day. I've been saving money, as much as I can with a wedding on the way. And researching costs, daycares, houses/condos.
Whoever recommended that I ask a doctor about cash payment plans, I'd like to say thanks! I called my obgyn and asked for an estimate for having a baby and they straight up told me the cost for vaginal and c-section deliveries. AND its a LOT less expensive than what I was thinking it would be. YAY!!!!
So I'm still hoping we stop preventing in October/November. I think we will TTC on our 1st anniversary. In the meantime, I'm saving up for a new car and studying still. It would be ideal to have most of my tests done before we really start trying. But I would be super excited if we got a surprise before then!
Anyone else's plan changing soon? Pop in and say a quick hello!
