I didn't call for the results yet, figured I would tomorrow morning. I do have some questions for the nurse as well. I have never used progesterone to induce a period so I don't know if I start before the end of the pills do I still continue taking them. The tech taking my blood asked if I had booked an appointment at the lab for my other tests..um, no, have to have AF start before I can do that! :confused:
Woot for getting the painting done! That is always a bigger job then you expect.
I still have unpacking to do, plus put up pictures and such... we have been here 4 months now. I just want to sleep...no energy at all.
Idk the answer to the progesterone question either. I'm thinking you take the progesterone, stop the pills, then get a period. When you do an IVF cycle you take progesterone, then if the cycle fails, stop it, then get a period a few days later. Sometimes lab ppl don't think. m/c mentioned...The worst was when I had to POAS before my D&C. That was a total slap in the face to see those 2 lines pop up.
I think we just went through some boxes of stuff we never unpacked when we moved in 5 years ago. There are just some boxes that you don't have time for and get shoved away. I don't mind painting and this room have lived with how it was for 5 years. We decorated around the color. It wasn't my favorite color but was "doable". It was a minty green, if it was more sage green I would've been ok. I like warmer colors better so this makes the room feel more cozy.
Phone call into the nurses..now to wait for them to call back. I leave in 1.5 hrs for my dentist appointment. Counselling session cancelled for today (child ment) Robbie is home sick :(
Good luck with your dentist appt. I hate going to the dentist. I'd rather see my ob/gyn.
DH was supposed to have the day off. He got a call at 8:25 saying the ER doc no showed and there was a pt in the ER so could he be there now. So he said yes. He'll work until 6pm so he'll have the evening off.
Here is a small portion of my garage door with these darn boxelder bugs! They are so annoying. DH tried to use his bug fogger to get rid of them and that didn't faze them. The warmer and sunnier it gets, the worse the bugs get.
Yuck! Those bugs are gross.
The dentist appointment is with my tmj specialist so I don't mind them so much. I go back in November, my splint seems to be helping some.
Beta results: not pregnant but I did ovulate (woot), so the nurse said not to take the meds unless they call back. I have heard nothing yet. If AF is not here by next Friday to call back in.
(m/c, infant loss ment) Tomorrow we are going to "A Walk to Remember". It is for families who have lost a baby through m/c, still birth or death in infancy. I am sure it will be an emotional time for us. Tonight we are going to pick up a few teddy bears to donate. When you suffer a loss they give you a teddy bear to remember your baby by. There are days I hold my Bailey Bear and just cry.
My church in Dallas had a special garden for those who have lost little ones (either miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death). It was a very peaceful place with shade, bubbling fountains and some nice scripture. I think it would be comforting even for non-Christians. I am lucky to not have suffered a pregnancy loss (yet)... but I have known a lot of people that have, and have seen a lot just in my work.
I think a walk with others would be good, but it would also take great strength to do it. Good luck with that tomorrow.
My dad is flying in from Texas (with my brother), so we have a full house. I've got the cheese and wine laid out (its 2am and it has been a loooong day of traveling for them - in a small airplane).
We really have no support here for infant loss/m/c that I'm aware of. The walk and teddy bears is a really nice thing. I'm sure it will be an emotional day for you Margaret. Glad to hear you ovulated. Do you have any idea when you did?
Children mentioned...We got DD2's bedroom put back together yesterday. We have to hang a couple things on the wall and get the rest of her "stuff" back in there. It looks so sharp. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Today DD1 has a marching band competition that we are going to go to. The parade is 1 hr 45 min long. Our band marches 9th so I'm not sure how long we'll stay.
Tiffany...have fun with your dad and brother. Did they make it safely? I'm sure they enjoyed the wine and cheese. Sounds like a long day for you also.
I had no clue that we had those supports until I needed it. They also do a baby memorial every year, it changes between 3 funeral homes. It is a nondenominational service, families can light a candle for their baby. They also so a little grave side service where the babies from the last year were buried. This year we went to Bailey's grave.

Tiffany - enjoy your company.
Today we were supposed (meaning expected- though I had sent my regrets) to attend a wedding for dh's cousin. We are having them over for dinner on Tuesday and sent a nice gift- but kept getting texts of the "please come" sort from my MIL all week. No one got more than 2-3 hrs of sleep and my dad and brother are here for 48 hrs. For obvious reasons I cannot travel right now. Its one of the downsides of moving closer- family is going to have to deal with we have our own very full life. My husband has insisted all week that we would not go- but it is hard for him to tell his mom a straight no. So, Ive had the fun of that.
Now of course, I cant sleep.
