Jenni, I hope you are feeling better today! Update us when you can :)
Meg - Coconut cream pie :D Yummmmmm! I love anything coconut! Have fun this weekend with your family :)
I am waiting on a call from the RE. I will be triggering tomorrow or Sunday, Lord willing of course :) I am little nervous and excited at the same time. I was planning on being off work day of ER and a day after. Will that be enough? I have to clean my house this weekend because I don't think I'll be able to do anything next week. I keep thinking I am forgetting something, like there is a bill I did not pay or something. Thank God for knitting, it really calms me down :eek:
Yay Mimi!! You are so close!!!!!!
Enjoy your baking Meg. I love to bake. Might have to make some bread before Sunday...
Just heard from the clinic. Only 2 embryos made it :( I'm trying really hard not to freak out. All it takes is one. No one IRL showed support yesterday (not even my parents) so it means SO much that y'all were thinking of us. Our transfer is set for 7am on Sunday. If you are so inclined, please pray that at least one makes it.
Have a good Friday. Mimi - all my T&Ps are with you!!! You got this!!
Meg, I <3 your love story and esp the pic of the two of you on your first date. What a beautiful and happy pic!!
Today, is what I like to call PANIC cleaning. I have my mom and sis coming into town first thing tomorrow morning and we need to do a thorough cleaning of the place. I've not been too consistent about it as I've been on the computer a lot today. Ooops.
Mimi, I'm bracing for my mood swings. Before I had my kidney transplant I was on a couse of high dose prednisone in the hopes of slowing down the progression of my kidney disease. Prednisone is so horrible on me emotionally - I was often angry and emotional. So my being on these meds should be interesting. You have got a great DH who understands you!
Good luck on the trigger! I hope it all goes well!
Jenni, good luck and praying for your embryos stick stick stick!!!
Enjoy your Easter ladies!
Jenni, I am glad you are feeling better today. Try not to freak out, 2 is plenty when all we need is 1. I am praying, praying, praying really hard for both of us. My MIL asked our imam to do a prayer for me and I called him to tell him to include Jenni from NC. I am sorry your family did not give you the support you needed, but you can be sure that there is a family on pg.org rooting for you and Chris :bigarmhug:
Sophie I have a mild asthma and have been on prednisone a few times. It makes me so hungry! Try not to worry about cleaning the house so much. Its your family, they wont judge ;)
Well I will be triggering tomorrow and ER will be on Monday. I still do not have the ER time, they'll call me later today. I am starting to panic a little. Eeek!
Jenni...I read your update in your other post. I'm sorry that two only made. I'll be praying that the strongest survived. That's so exciting that you'll be PUPO on Easter. I'm sorry your family is not supporting you.
Sophie...hope you can get your cleaning done. I finished mine up today. I was jamming to music mopping floors when my in-laws came. Luckily, they don't really care. I really wouldn't have to clean my house good for DH's family but it's always nice to have it clean. It gives me a good reason to do a good cleaning. How long ago did you have your kidney transplant? If you don't mind me asking.
Mimi...glad you get to trigger tomorrow. It's so fun to have ppl cycling so close to each other! I love anything coconut also. I hope the pie turns out. I using some of the review changes ppl made on the recipe and putting some coconut milk in it. I've this pie before but never with the coconut milk.
I bought a new Easter outfit for myself today. I really wasn't going to because I'm cheap and couldn't justify it when I have so many clothes. I justified it though by saying I'd wear it a lot. I'll wear it for Easter, violin recital and we have a couple weddings this summer.
My mom met me to go to church at 11 this morning. Afterwards we went out for lunch and she went shopping with me for my outfit.
Tonight DH and I are going to go to a wine thing. A local restuarant has what's called "First Fridays." They always do something different on the first Friday of the month and is geared towards adults. Sometimes they bring in a comedian or band. Last month they did the wine thing also and we went and had fun. Idk if DH's parents will come with or not. His brother and wife will get here later tonight. I really don't mind if I'm here or not when he gets here.
Warning...major pity party/vent ahead. Children/pregnancy/m/c mentioned
So DH's brother and his wife got here last night. We had to sit and listen about their wedding and look through a photo book. It would be all nice but his brother is something else. Everything has to be about him. Then after we hear all this his brother says "we have something else we'd like to tell you. We are expecting our first child in October." I asked when her due date was and it's Oct. 19. Their one year wedding anniversary is Oct. 15 so I said that's almost on your anniversary. He said "yeah I hope it doesn't come then so we can celebrate our anniversary." Even though I've moved on and accepted that I'm not going to have kids it's still hard for me to hear pregnancy announcements and see pregnant ppl. I think it's something I'll never get over. It reminds of what I didn't get to experience and share. I wanted to have the experience of announcing my pregnancy, being pregnant, giving birth and raising a child from birth. He's so selfish and self-absorbed I'm sure he doesn't even take into consideration my feelings of it. He knows we m/c'd 3 years ago. So they were married for 3 months and I'm sure got pregnant right away. Then I have to sit and watch her about 1/2 fall asleep in the chair when she gets here and I'm sure I'll have to hear about everything. I was just planning on having a brunch today and an early dinner but DH's mom told her she can just eat whenever and as much as she wants. This is the 2nd pregnancy announcement of someone we know that I've heard in the last few weeks. I should be happy, but I'm not.
Then when I went back to bed and plugged in my iPhone, it goes completely dead. Like won't turn on, nothing. It was strange as I had just looked at it to set an alarm. I fretted over it for a while then decided to just let it be until morning. Morning comes, nothing happened. I went online to troubleshoot and ended up resetting it and that worked. Idk what happened to it. That and last nights new made me wake up on the total wrong side of the bed. As I'm trying to figure out my phone my oldest comes down to tell me the cat puke or pooped or peed by the stairs. I told her to pick it up. I was so frustrated I didn't want to hear it. And I think she's about 12 years old, she can start picking that stuff up. It rarely happens. I'm sure the cat is just stressed with the extra ppl here. I really hope my day gets better. Maybe once I get some coffee in me that will help.
Mimi - you have me in tears over here! Thank you SO much. You ladies rock. I've been praying so hard for all of you. I told DH about my "internet friends". He thinks y'all are great too! Happy Triggering tonight!!! KUP as to the time on Monday. I'll have everything crossed for you.
Meg - Big hugs! I'm so sorry about BIL. Aren't self-absorbed people the worst? I'm glad you got yourself an outfit. I think that you never outgrow the need for an Easter outfit. I'm sorry about the gadget but glad that you figured it out. How was the wine event?
Sophie - good luck cleaning! Have fun with the family.
I used a gift card for a massage that DH got me this morning. Wonderful. Still a little nervous about tomorrow but nothing I can do about it. I'm not sure what's going on with everyone IRL. It's like we've just been forgotten. But nothing I can do about that either. DH and I have each other and that's all that matters.
Hope everyone else is alright.
The morning is going better. We've dyed Easter eggs, I've made my rhubarb pie and deviled eggs and am moving onto making the coconut cream pie.
I just don't get my BIL. He had to make such a big deal about telling our girls about the pregnancy. Our youngest's first reponse was "already?" She's probably thinking that her daddy and I have been married for 5 years and haven't had a baby yet. Esp since she's the one that wanted us to get pregnant so bad. The girls really didn't ask when she was going to have the baby so they had to make a big deal about that. After they told them the girls wanted to go play. He kind of pouted off down to the basement with them and my MIL said "well they do have a lot of cousins." His response was "so having one more is no big deal to them." So he was being a big baby because they didn't jump up and down for them. Not everyone is going to be as excited about it as they are. Then we were sitting eating breakfast and he said to his wife "what kind of pill are you taking?" Then went on to explain what prenatal vitamins were to the girls. I just can't handle him. I've been txting back and forth to my SIL (DH's sister) who also can't stand him about how "wonderful" of a time we are having. Everything is all about HIM. Sorry for the rant.
Sorry, I just realized I made that post all about me after I was complaining about BIL being selfish.
Jenni...I'm sure the massage felt good. I got DH a couple's massage for V-day and he really enjoyed it. You have a really good attitude about everything. That's good! Hope your wonderful positive attitude gives you many rewards.
Hi ladies! I just got a call from the clinic. I will be triggering tonight at 9:15pm, ER is Monday at 9:15am. DH and MIL are being super supportive. MIL cooked breakfast, DH took us out for lunch and I'm told dinner will be served at 6:30pm. DH is insisting I get a nap, but I wanted to check on you first :)
Jenni, massage sounds great. DH loves getting massages so we often get them together. I'll remind him to schedule one for us next week :) I am still praying for both of us. I told DH how much I enjoy talking to my internet friends and he thinks it is great that I can share with people who understand me. Good luck tomorrow! I'll be thinking and praying for you. Update us if you feel like it :)
Meg, I am sorry your BIL is such a pain in the a**. Good thing is they are not staying long. I too cannot stand when people want me to be overly excited about their good fortunes, even when I'm not envious. Good for you, now let me be! Ugh!!! I will be praying for God to give you strength not to strangle him this weekend :) How was the wine thing? I hope you enjoyed it :)
