As for moi, (if you didn't see it on the other thread) I ran my first 5K race this past Saturday. It was fun! I was so surprised that I was passing people during the first half of the run, and would have continued doing so, if I hadn't petered out during the second half and had to stop to walk a little bit here and there. But it's okay, I finished with a pretty good time, and it gave me hope that after a bit more training, I might even be able to "place" (in my age group) in most 'amateur' races! Biggrin

In ttc news, DH had a bit of an incident where our sweet DD jumped on him while he was on the couch and made him sing soprano, if you catch my drift, so he's been sore the past few days and we haven't been able to BD. He's been concerned about BD anyway due to the infection and is worried he could pass it to me, and I'm concerned it might affect the quality of his spermonade Wink These are things we didn't think about at first, in our initial excitement of thinking this has been the cause of his issues all along and anticipating having a really good time once the antibiotics started to get the infection under control. So anyway, we might just wait this month out unless I can find proof online that his type of infection won't affect things. I best get busy looking it up, because I got a +OPK today.

Well I couldn't find much on it, other than ONE post by a woman on a message board, but even that was questionable. I wish the doctor had thought to tell DH whether or not we could BD without protection. Maybe DH can call him tomorrow and try to find out. I'm guessing we probably shouldn't.

Well my thing this week is a vent. I had my follow up Re appt since my ectopic and HSG. RE said my remaining tube is blocked. He didnt offer lap or anything he just said IVF. So me and Hubby fired him. I will continue to bd unprotected but I will look into IVF next year.

Mary-that sounds like a good plan!! I hope it clears up soon!
Renae-so sorry about the news. Hopefully you can get a sticky bean on your own!

AFM, nothing much to report. This cycle is a bust so I'm just waiting around for the next one. I forgot to use my monitor last cycle so I have to take it out. I've lost hope...I really have. I'm still trying but it's not the same anymore. I've slowly convinced myself that DD may be my only one.

I know what you mean, Marisol. I'm starting to wonder if my DD will be the only one, too. I have faith, but I also realize it just may not be in God's plan for us to have another. I'm more okay now about that than I have been in the past.

The one tough thing, though, is that H really wants a sibling. ~Sigh~ We were getting in the van one day after church, and we could have sworn she said to us, "Okay, you guys need to get busy, so I can have a baby brother or sister." ROFL She wouldn't repeat it so we aren't 100% that's what she said, but I'm telling you, it sure did sound like that's what she said! DH and I just looked at each other with our mouths open. I'm sure she had no idea what "getting busy" meant, but still.... too funny that she used those words!

Hey ladies, AF started this week, so I'm "happy" as usual....

Mostly tho, I have been doing more walking and running again, so this makes me happy, as I have been stalling for a few weeks now on the weight and would like it to move downward again.....

Week started pretty awesomely, as work is interesting again and quite busy. Then the new shoes being transferred from another store finally got here and I was able to buy it - on the first day of a footwear sale PLUS 10% off for going to a running clinic recently. Hooray!

Ran a couple of times in the shoes and they seem to be pretty comfortable. Also, despite being slow this week, been able to run 6k! My running clinic finished last week, so I am still trying to figure out when to do my 3rd run of the week without imposing on my hubby, as I want my Thurs nite back for yoga. DH has been so awesome with looking after Evie when I go running.

Also this week, I have also signed up for a few runs until the end of the year. I want to sign up for one more but DH was sounding really unhappy with that without saying no. So I thought I better not push my luck...yet. Heh.

Finally, DD had a really fun Hallowe'en Party at daycare, but there were 7 kids who had thrown up that day and were sent home early. Guess what DD did about an hour or so after she fell asleep?? Yep - and it was super stinky and gross too. She vomited a few times over a couple of hours and it was so sad to see her cry and throw up and I couldn't even help her. She's all better now tho, thank goodness!

So that's my week. /novel

Sorry about Evie, Sophia, glad she's better, though. WTG on the running! Smile

I went to baby shower yesterday. I did pretty good with it, I chose ahead of time to put my feelings aside and just be happy for my friend. She waited a long time for a healthy pregnancy.

(pg ment)
Tonight I just found out on FB (through a third party, no less) that a close relative is pregnant with her 2nd. I kind of wish I could have heard it straight from her, but... sigh... that's the world we live in today. What can you do? I'm happy for her, of course, but um... yeah. It hurts a bit. I'm sure you guys understand what I mean.

Mary, totally understand. BTDT too many times now to count.

Marisol, I also know what you mean, altho I'm still trying to deny the possibility that DD could be our only one. But I've stopped actively pariticipating on the BBs (never stop going there to stalk however) for the same reason.

Renea, *hugehugs* I'm so sorry that your RE wasn't very helpful at all. I would have fired him too.

Hey girls, can I still post here?

Mary- too funny about Hannah in the car after church. How is the new kitty?

Sophia- I'm so impressed with all the running you are doing. I wish I could just start running like that. Me and running have never been the best of friends.

Renea- I think you made the right decision firing your RE. Will you look for another one that will try to unblock your tube before you move onto IVF?

Marisol- so sorry you are feeling down, I think we all understand and know that feeling all too well. It's days like these that I usually drive-thru our cupcake place...

Amanda - Sure! Post away, you are always welcome Biggrin The new kitty is doing great, he is such an awesome cat! He's smart, funny, and great fun. And sleeps around the same time we do at night! Though last night, he thought when I got up to pee in the middle of the night that it was time to eat, but he quickly got the clue when I went back to bed. He is soooooooo cute. Did I mention, cute? He will curl up on me or DH and sleep, or right beside us. And he "hugs" me in the mornings. I'll be walking along and he'll jump up on my leg and "hug" it (paws only, no claws :)). Too funny!

So what is everyone doing tonight? I'm taking H to the Fall Festival at our church. She's going as a Ballerina. I haven't decided yet what I'm going to be (I'll be volunteering at one of the booths). I thought about maybe doing Lucy (Lucille Ball) from the I Love Lucy show, but I have no idea what I would wear. I don't think I have anything that would look remotely like something from that era, lol.

Though it would be cool if DH could go as Ricky Ricardo. He'd have to shave his beard off, though. Lol

My family is coming over for dinner and then we are taking my niece trick-or-treating. She will be a kitty cat! We've been practicing saying "meow" will her, but it really comes out like "maaaa." Oh well, lol.

Well I decided to be a leopard. I looked in my closet and saw my leopard print blouse and went from there. DH said I was cute, but I wasn't so sure, lol.

After all that my tube isnt blocked. I ended up getting a BFP and went back to the RE like WTF. I got a beta done at 13dpo and they said it was like 10. I was suspose to go back yesterday but my truck is out of comission right now. My test are getting darker but not fast enough. Im still scared of another ectopic.
