    Got my blood testing done today... Ouch I really don't like needles. Although I have a tatoo - but they weren't drawing blood out of me for that....

    The lady kind of had an attitude with me at first - she was like - that will be $1100 - I was like - yeah, right.... I tried to explain that because my insurance doesn't cover fertility stuff, my clinic has a contract with the blood drawing place and I get a cash discount -she was like I can bill you, but they charge an additional $400!!! So I was like $400 to mail out a freakin invoice!!! So I called my clinic - and they were like - no, don't worry, we have a cash discount - so don't worry. So I'm not going to.

    Anyway, the blood drawing lady was nice after that and she did an okay job of getting my blood - only had to stick me twice - normal for me is three to four times so twice isn't bad.... AND I didn't even have to lie down because I didn't feel like I had to pass out - Yeah!!!

    So, the Governor Schwarnegger was in Auburn today - they had Chevy's all taped off, secret service, the police and I was wondering what was happening - and it was that he was going to be there today - crazy....

    So - on next Wednesday I go in for the HSG... Nervous about that....

    I talked to the nurse at the RE's office yesterday. It turns out DH's sperm are SUPER sperm!!!! She said she sees a lot of sperm and these are some of the best she's seen - in the morphology - she's never seen any better than his...

    So, that is really encouraging news - and means the problem is totally with me - which of course we are working on. I get my HSG done next Weds and I am getting really nervous...

    The nurse said to call the last week in the month to make sure they have gotten all our blood work in and that it is all okay. Then, she is going to prescribe Clomid - which means that I could have my first chance at getting pg in May - HOLY COW!!!!!

    That is keeping in mind that all needs to be good with my hormones and the HSG. I'll be so happy when next week is over...

    Dropped off my prescription for my antibiotics for my HSG tomorrow. So nervous now. I wish it was already over. I think I'll pick up Oceans 12 to watch tomorrow after it is done.

    DH got his blood drawn yesterday. So I can call the end of the month and hopefully get started on Clomid. DH wishes I would get pg at a time when I would deliver between August & January - but that means I would have to wait to get pg a few months. But we have had such a hard time - I said I couldn't wait and he agreed. We wouldn't be guranteed to get pg during those months anyway. But, if I do get pg this next month or two - it would be hard because I will deliver during boat show season - which of course is DHs' busiest time of year....

    But like DH says everything has worked out for us - what will be will be.

    I will call the RE's office next week on the 27th. Can't wait to hear what the results are.

    OT- With some help from me and my broker DH gets to meet Gov Schwarznegger (sp?) tomorrow at a breakfast thing with only 50 people! So that is exciting since he is a mentor figure for DH...

    Just found out my cousin, Deanna, is pg! She is 3 months along. I am so happy for them. She m/c her last pg after telling everyone... Very sad. So glad this one is doing well.

    Can't wait until the 27th!!!

    Met my new ob/gyn today. I liked her. She seems really nice. She said if I have any questions that I can call her and she will be available over the phone. Which is nice. So that means I get to have a personal relationship with a doctor, yeah! Not just a number at Kaiser anymore...

    I will (when I get pg - see I said when, not if --improving on being positive) be delivering at the hospital that I was born at- crazy, huh!!!

    Only 5 more days until I call on the blood tests...

    Well, I was trying to wait until tomorrow to call the RE and find out about my blood work & hormone levels, but you know me.... So I did call today - and haven't heard back yet - which I called late in the afternoon so I didn't expect to hear back today... Sigh, have to wait until tomorrow...

    Hope it's good news!

    Heard back from the RE's office today. Everything came back normal. I am A positive blood type - which DH & I did the at home blood typing and I came out A negative I thought - so that is good to know the right kind.

    So as soon as I can test for pg & start Provera (May 11) then as soon as I start AF (hopefully May 21 or 22) then I call the RE's office and they call in my Clomid prescription. I take that CD3-7 and then test for LH surge CD 11-14 and soon as I get it I go in for u/s to check o and then bd... And then test for pg on about June 14... Just in time for Father's Day. That would be sooo exciting. I'm not going to get my hopes up though.

    So exciting to finally be on a road!!!

    Not much to report these last few days. Today was DH's 28 bday!!! I got him navigation for his Excursion and the pups got him a new pair of Ray Bans - a mirrored pair he's been wanting. So an expensive weekend - but he is so worth it!!!

    Also, had to pop by a baby shower today - couldn't stay because of DHs Bday - but was glad to have the excuse. I love the girl who is pg -but I dont' know one single other person she does and wasn't ready to field all the "are you and your DH trying" questions. Seriously on a baby shower spree right now. One a week for the next three weeks! Ugh!!! All people I care about - but sure makes me crave a baby even more...

    I just have to keep repeating - it will happen when it's time... I hope the time is next month....

    DH is getting really excited about the baby - he's always been wanting one - but finally getting as excited as me - I don't think he'll be that excited (as me) until I have a baby coming out - ha, ha!!! When we were picking up the presents for the baby showers he was looking at furniture at Babies R Us and was asking me which one's I liked best - it seemed so crazy to be even loooking at baby furniture!!! But I would like to look at Goores and at Pottery Barn Baby before we pick some out. Of course even thingking about that - I am getting way ahead of myself!

    If we don't DTD tonight then I can do the pg test on May 8.... Which means I could be on the road to the BFP - three days earlier... LOL!!! So much planning in this babymaking - I never dreamed it would be so hard and cost so much.... But in the end if I get a sweet baby - it's all worth it. Our year anniversary of TTC in a month away on June 3 - I thought I would at least be pg by now - that 's what I get for trying to plan everything...

    Well the girls on my TTC board convinced me to wait to test... So I am testing on May 12 now. It will be 14 days past the last BD - so if by a miracle I o'd last month and some chance I got pg - then I am not cutting off my nose to spite my face. I would be devestated if I was pg - didn't know it - took the Provera and caused myself to m/c....

    So - patience is a virtue - I am being as patient as I can be. I have been having these weird twinge/crampy things in my lower abdomendom(sp?). that I have never had before. But I am not reading into them - because I will just drive myself crazy and then be totally sad when i get that BFN on May 12. But at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel - Clomid at the end of this month!!!

    Until then I don't know how much I'll post in this (until May 12) because there won't be much to report - except my impatience! At least there are some things to occupy me - work, dogs, DH, my back yard getting done, a party at our friends house on Friday - a baby shower on Sat, Mothers day on Sunday - oh wait the last 3 things remind me that I am not pg...
