    Sis is doing great considering. She came home Thursday. We've just been visiting and watching tv. She's only taking reg tylenol and advil which I thinkis amazing. I've realized how good dh and I are at taking care of each other when things are bad, like when I had my surgury.... water? no problem. Help getting up, i'm there..... Not the same for my sis. Gotta whip her dh into shape before I go. I didnt realize that sheisn'teven allowed to drive for 4 weeks!!!!

    I've been calling around to maybe adopt a puppy to bring home as a surprise to my stepkids. I think i'mready for a puppynow. At least i'll have that for ababy. Dh knows of course.
    Probably driving home tomorrow, then I'll have one day to rest/recover from the all day drive and get back into routine before a crazy week at work.
    Work. Not looking forward to it. Wish I didnt have to work,too much life going on for me to have time to work, too many bills though.

    I've been reading the IVF boards, wishing thebest for those girls... Inmy heart I really feel that even IVF won't work for us. Its sad because I dont know if anything can work for us. I don't want to waste my life trying for something that won't happen and miss out on the NOW.

    I thinkmy hormones are in overdrive, I've got cramps, they started yesterday and today are there too. Almost worthy of advil but i'm waiting till spot shows up. I'm excited to try the herbs my acupuncturist gave me. I'm supposed to start on CD1. Sad, i'm a few days late, we barely dtd but I still hope for a miracle. I know i'm not preg, I took a test two days ago just in case......

    I think i've been avoiding this journal long enough. Its been a good 'break'. I'm definately not 'on a break' ttc. I am however relaxing a bit/ accepting that its not a given that if you have sex you will get pregnant right away. WOw what a concept.

    I"m home now, had a VERY busy work week catching up and training a new manager. Thats a big job initself.

    I did find a puppy. He is my baby. THe kids LOVE him and so does dh, except at 2:30 am when he needs to pee. I"m exhausted, work is nuts and lots of early days and driving... plus puppy.. wow i'm tired. He's sleeping on my lap now, so cute. He is a urine/poop machine though.

    I was supposed to drink the chinese herbs when af came, it was so gross i couldn't do it. i drank over half of the first day's prescription and then didnt do any more. Supposed to do 5 days worth. I"ve been to acupuncture since, last time she 'poked' my tummy. I go tomorrow and its cd 14 so good timing to help. I don't see it working this fast, but who knows. Oh and i'im supposed to be on a diet, no cold food, no wheat/sugar yada yada, not doing well with that either. I'm so tired of trying things and not having them work....


    Looking forward to tonights date night, nachos and beer.. not on my diet but oh well, oh and probably be home by 9, wow party on.


    I said something funny at work today. Talking to a lady about her grandchild to be, they just found out, the girl is prob 5-6 weeks pregnant.... she said something to me about when its my turn and my reply was :

    "oh when I get lucky"

    she snickered. I said I was going home to tell my husband and he would get a good laugh at that.

    Oh puppy just farted, it stinks.
    Good training for a baby

    I had acupuncture yesterday. I"ve been several times, she focuses on my back... though I don't know that all of the points mean. Yesterday however she 'poked' my stomach and head and feet. I go again tomorrow. This is because of the point in my cycle i'm at. Its impossible to temp right now with puppy waking us up every two hours. I have my expired opk's that i've done a few times but not enough to truly know if I missed the surge or not. I think i'll test again now and see. I'm on cd 15 right now so who knows.

    We went to the dog park in town with pup, oh his name is Dallas. He's a good boy, not too many accidents. He made lots of friends. We are all tuckered out now

    HI everyone. Pup is growing like crazy. Still waking me up twice a night.


    DH is across Canada visiting his parents. His dad had a 'bleeding episode' two weeks ago..... been dx with throat cancer. The only surgical option is removing half his tongue and half of his jawbone. Sounds like he's not going for that.

    Having a ct scan next friday so we will know more then. Dh is supposed to be come home next wed, not sure if he will change his flight to stay......

    My parents are visiting us this week. i've really appreciated them being here, making dinner for us when I get home from work etc.

    DH changed his flight to Sat night so he can be with dad for his scan and oncologist appt.

    Pup had a good night, slept till after 5am!

    DH got some supplements (his idea) so he's gonna try to build up his troops. Guess I should start taking prenats again. Just got so sick and tired of taking pills for years 'for nothing'.

    Chart 35

    I'm brewing the chinese herbs as we speak. At least this time I know I can boil it for awhile to reduce the amount I need to drink

    I go next for acupuncture on tuesday..... I think i'll book daily appointments around cd 13-15. I will ask her about herbs around that time too.

    I havn't even tried to stick to the reccomended diet she gave me. One thing is to eat only hot foods/drinks. I drink water at work, i'll take a mug so I can heat it in the microwave. Yummy

    Gotta start taking prenats again, maybe i'll get some baby asprin too for good measure.

    have a head cold. It came on within a few hours. I"m home this morning but going to work at 1. Laying on the couch today. Last night I was up thinking of all the things I have to do.... the insurance money that we got robbed of for my meds, work... on and on. I hate that. Gotta try and turn my head off at night.

    Oh and the bank called at 6:45 am looking for dh. THey were calling from the east, is it that hard to realize when you are dialing a bc number that there is a 3 hour time difference? Then she says oh its no emergency just had some info for him. Oh thanks, I finally got back to sleep and now its game over.

    Puppy is sleeping thru the night now. I can't believe how quick he started doing that. Having dh home to help walk him more has worked i'm sure.

    Gotta go rescue my shoes and underwear the dog is playing with

    I was supposed to work 1-9:30 but had someone cover half my shift. Couldn't get it all covered. At least I had most of the day to rest, well and then time to cook and do laundry and tidy a little. The herbs i'm cooking right now are making me gag but I was a good girl this morning and had my morning drink of it. Guess it doesnt do anything for my immune system

    Being home alone is nice.... dh is home soon. Then we get to talk about bills and unpaid bills lol won't that be a treat.

    my cold is still hanging on and dss now has a stomach flu. I had yesterday off which was good. I"m going in today but sure feel like calling someone in to cover half my day.

    I've been good at taking my tcm drink
    I talked to dh yesterday....... told him I feel like i'm being punished every time I drink the medicine... and keep doing different things with nothing working for us... he answered 'stop taking it'..

    Men.

    Its December now and i'm starting to grieve sprout again. People are coming into my store and asking for gifts for babies turning one. I can't help but think about sprout and how big he/she would have been right now. I know i'm in a way better place than I was a year ago, I guess its normal to have sad feelings come back once inawhile.

    I called in sick today. I dont know how i'll work tomorrow but I have to. DSS is very sick with stomach flu. PUking last night, 4am, and just now despite me dosing him up on gravol today. I hope I dont get that.

    Now i'm wondering if I should make my tcm drink... I just looked. I have two more bags (two days worth) so Ya i'm making it right now. I've come this far taking the meds this cycle why stop now. Gotta give it an honest try.

    Guess its time to start thinking about using my opk's. I have that scope but never figured it out. Maybe I can try that again too.

    All this money spent, I wish I had bought the ov watch. It seems to take all guesswork out. Not that it is the cure for me but it sounds neat.
