    Can I jump in?

    Meg I am jealous of your pond! DH is hoping to put a small pond in our yard one day but we're still trying to finish the inside as well as get the general landscaping (trees, grass, gardens, etc) done - we moved into our house 4 years ago. We live on a farm in Northern Alberta

    Jina, I didn't know that about the BCP either and I'm due to start them in a month or two. I'll keep that in mind for sure. I'm sorry you were in so much pain

    Yesterday I worked - I work part time as an Administrative Assistant in a local electrician company. I love it My hubby was on nights, so my DS and I got to hang out together. I did a quick workout and caught up on some emails, etc. Today I am working again but am anxious for my evening - I am doing Weight Watchers and tonight is my weigh-in. I missed last week due to travelling to the city for our consultation appt. I am praying for a loss again.... Then, after that, I have my Zumba class which I haven't done since the start of the month. It's my therapy. I can have the worst day ever and go to Zumba and come out thinking I'm the best most fantastic person in the world LOL. I have always struggled with my weight and am so happy I found something that burns a ton of calories that is fun.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Here is a pic of our pond. It's a couple years old and it looks like some things hadn't grown in yet when it was taken. Behind the big bush on the right is a little bridge and the rest of the pond with a waterfall. This pic doesn't show it well.

    And for fun a pic of DH and I from this past weekend. We were at a Gala event. It's a fundraiser for the local private school. It's like an adult prom.

    The reason BCP cause breakthrough bleeding is because of the level of estrogen. If the level of estrogen in the pill is too low, then you'll bleed. I bled on the pill I was on a few months ago because it was a low dose estrogen pill. The one I just got put on is in the midrange for estrogen. I remembered being so worried when it happened to me during my IVF cycle because I was afraid my lining would be too thin.

    Yeah. DH joked yesterday and if it weren't for bad luck, we'd have no luck but I'm not too sure about that. We have 'annoying luck'. We are so blessed with a roof over our heads, money in the bank, food on the table, and people who love us. But it does seem to be a little more "difficult" for us than most. But it builds character right?

    I work for the State in Health and Human Services doing eligibility benefits. I basically read medical records all day and decide if people meet the criteria for the program. I was lucky enough to get the job about 6 months after graduating college and 8+ years later here we are. I have tried several times to find other jobs but can't. At this point I'm just waiting for a career change to "mom"
    DH does IT for the railroad (freight trains). He has a engineering degree in computer service but does a little more on the business side now. He works with goverment agencies (border and customs, TSA, Homeland Sercurity) and committees to make sure that the railroads are complying with all of the laws for trade. It's a great match for him and the benefits are amazing!

    Meg, OMGosh, your pond and your back yard is BEAUTIFUL! Wow! I'm seriously speechless! How big is your property? Hehe....I'm jealous....we have a pretty small yard. You have really beautiful eyes as well...what a beautiful couple! Thanks for sharing!

    Mimi, I would have been livid!! Wow....I don't even know what to say. I don't think you're over reacting at all. In fact, I think you're an amazing person to throw her a shower after the stunt she pulled. ((HUGS))

    Harmony, I hope you have better luck with bcps. It's not fun for sure but hopefully they won't give you too much trouble. I'm glad you found a form or exercise that you love to do. Hehe....I wish I could find something that I enjoyed....sigh...I just really don't like working out. lol

    Jenni, yes, I believe that we will be better mothers for going through so much more to have a child. Very true....at least we are fortunate enough to have IVF available to us? right?

    AFM, I am a sahw. I thought I would have been a sahm by now but it's taking a little longer to get there. Hubby is the Lead Senior Developer at 3M and also owns a software company. After I quit my job a few years ago I planned on going to culinary school but sadly this whole ttc and m/c business has taken over my life it seems. I no longer care about anything else....it makes me a little sad.

    Thanks for the tips on the meds. I didn't know they had to be refrigerated. I wonder if I have to sign for them? I hope I'm here when the package arrives. I didn't know I'd be attending a class. For some reason I thought I would have a one on one with my nurse....eeek....a lot to learn!

    Mimi - I think you are handling this as well as anyone could! That is very sweet of you to knit the blanket. It's so hard to deal with people like that. I try really hard to make sure that I keep my hands clean in situations like that - KWIM? That I don't react and do something that gives them something to bring up against me. I'm sure it's of no benefit now but they have to live with what they have done and how they have acted. You can only hope that one day their consciences will get the better of them. Plus your room will be better because it will be for your baby Good luck with the shower! Clearly you have wonderful ideas (or else she wouldn't have stolen them ) and I'm sure it will go well.

    We own two lots. I'm not sure how big our yard is square footage wise. We really like where we live because it is in town but so quiet since we live on a culd-de-sac and have a creek and no houses in our backyard.

    Jina...I'm sure you'll have to sign for your meds. I always did when they were delivered. I kept all of mine refrigerated except for the PIO. Double check when you have your med class tomorrow though. I know some of them don't need to be refrigerated but can be. I chose to keep them all in the fridge. I always though culinary arts looks fun. They have a program at our local community college and we eat occasionally at the restaurant they cook at. I don't think I'd like to go through the program though. It seems pretty strict. I'd be fun to just take a couple cooking classes, that'd be more up my alley.

    I do Zumba also twice a week. I haven't done it this week since the studio is closed for the week. I also do yoga. I find I exercise better when I have a class I need to go to. I need the structure.

    Thank you for making me feel better about all this nursery drama. You are all right, there is no point crying over spilled milk And Jenni I agree with you, I should probably take it as a compliment

    Meg and Harmony - I have been thinking about trying Zumba for a while now. I am just too cheap to pay for exercise so I have never joined a class. Would you recommend it? Would it be safe to do during ivf?

    Jina - You'll have to sign for your meds. Do you know what carrier will deliver them? If you can find out I would call the carrier directly to see what time they usually deliver in your area.

    Jenni and Jina - I am so envious of you. I will not be able to be sahm. DH owns couple of businesses and I am an accountant. Don't get me wrong DH does very well, he is a great businessman but I like the security of my job. Plus we depend on me to get health insurance.

    What do you guys do in your "spare" time? I like photography, reading, knitting and redecorating my house. I do most of my redecorating myself, I am very much a DIY person. Currently I am reading a biography of Ava Gardner and knitting a blanket for my future niece. Oh and here is a photo I took few days ago:

    DH bought some flowers and I loved the green/white combination

    I never had to sign for my meds Good luck with it all!

    I'm so glad to "meet" another knitter!! I taught myself (actually DH did but that's a long story) how my junior year of college almost 10 years ago. I'm getting more adventurous in my patterns. My next goal is to learn how to make socks. I've heard it's super-easy but it's so intimidating for me. Other than that I love to read. I just finished the Hunger Games and am looking for my next book.

    I can't wait to get home and see the pictures!! Our server here at work blocks almost everything (except p.org )
