    Jenni - We had to freeze a sample because we were afraid of going thru cycle and getting 0 sperm on ER day. Oh I really wish you were closer, we would be great friends. Also, because I would like to sit you DH down and give him a lesson on surprise birthday parties. It doesn't require a huge attendance Chris!!! Lol, I would, I'm not kidding I have lots of "friends" but if I threw a stone the odds of hitting a true friend would be very slim. Hang in there hon! I too am hopping for some "mommy friends."

    Kara - Lunch and shopping with the girls sounds great! Have ton of fun this weekend

    Jina - I'm happy you are feeling better today. I love to paint, there is something exhilarating about a really clean room for me I get excited about weird things

    I have a question. So today is stim day 2, so far I have done 2 lupron shots, 1 Bravelle/Menopur, and 1 dexamethasone. This am I am starting to feel my ovaries. I am still spotting so I don't know if this is AF cramps or if I'm already getting stimulated. What do you think?

    Thanks Mimi! I think that we would as well. I was sold when you talked about your grandmother. My Nana (non-na) is one of my most favorite people in the whole world! As for your question, that sounds about like me with the spotting and the cramps. The spotting stopped by day 4. I still get an occasional tug here and there. Maybe it's a good thing for you as well!!

    You ladies have been chatty this morning. I'm glad to see this board picking up!

    Mimi...I'll have to check out that photography book. I do need to get out of using the manual setting and be a bit more adventerous in it. I would think the feeling you are having is your ovaries enlarging and producing eggs.

    Kara...Have fun with your friends and shopping. That sounds like a fun day.

    Jenni...It seems that's how things go. Things always happen on the days where it can't. I'm glad that you are responding so well. I remember trying to plan our cycles around DH's schedule or him trying to plan his schedule around the IVF cycles. With his job he has to be there. He can't call in sick since there is no other doc nearby to replace him. It was so stressful. During my 1st IVF cycle we were trying to plan DH's great-uncle's funeral around ER and ET. We weren't going to tell his family about IVF but kind of had to because some of them were getting frustrated with us trying to plan the funeral. It was not fun. We had to pick up his brother and sister from the airport right after ER. I hope you can find someone to go with you. That's sad that your DH said that about a party for you. I'm a person that wouldn't want a surprise party. I planned one for my DH's 40th bday. My BIL planned one for my sister's 30th bday and it was real small with just family and she enjoyed it.

    Jina...glad you are feeling a bit better today. It's hard news to take when it's something you've been anticipating for so long. I like to paint but I don't like the clean up. I woudl rather just throw everything away when I'm done but DH likes to clean and keep it all. I guess if he wants to do the clean up I can't argue.

    Children mentioned....

    I, too, feel like I don't have many friends. Our town is very cliquey. I have a couple women I would consider friends but they are much older than me because I met them through my daughter's friends. It's hard for me to meet ppl my age. I was hoping I would have a baby and could meet ppl my age. They all meet in playgroup but my kids are too old for playgroup. I do have a friend that I met working. It's the PS wife that I work for. We live in the same town and carpool to work.

    I'm sorry if I forgot anyone. I was reading all the posts on my phone and am now replying on my computer.

    I read an article once that said that adults tend to have a harder time making friends. I think there is even a blog about it. I'll have to research it and get back to you. Meg (or anyone else interested), have you heard of or read "Meditations from the Mat?" http://www.amazon.com/Meditations-Ma.../dp/0385721544
    It's one of my instructor's favorite books and she reads passages from it sometime. Last night she read one about "The Truth of what is" - it was all about how this is your circumstance right now and it's up to us to honor that. Very powerful stuff!

    What's on tap for everyone this weekend? We have a wedding tomorrow night. My co-worker is getting married. She's Indian (country of) and he's a good ol' country boy. I've been helping her plan it for a while and can't wait to see it all come together. Other than that we don't have much going on. Our kitchen is still in shambles but DH is meeting w/ the contractor right now so here's hoping that it will get fixed in the next week or so (But not Tues or Wed )

    I can beleive that adults have harder time making friends. The older women friends I have have so much drama. I can't handle drama. My DH doesn't have a lot of friends either. He calls most of his "acquaintences." I did hear that physicians have a hard time making friends and I think that is the case with me being "the doctor's wife." I think everyone is afraid I'm the sterotypical doctor's wife when I'm far from it. I'm your average Iowa raised girl and my DH is an average guy. Our new neighbor a couple years ago said she was always afraid to talk to me because my husband was a doctor.

    Is your friend putting a lot of Indian culture into her wedding? That could be a fun wedding. We have a pretty laid back weekend. We are going to go to a home and garden show tomorrow. Last year when we went we decided to put geo-thermal in our house so we'll see if we leave there with any new ideas. We want to remodel our kitchen and bath so maybe we'll get ideas for that. Then tomorrow night we have a bbq bday party for a friend.

    I'm sorry. I'd be your friend

    She is. They both are going to wear the traditional clothes. His grandmother is going to officiate the service. It's going to be a mix of both cultures. It's really sad though - her parents have basically disowned her because she is marrying him. Even more reason for us to go support her.

    Have fun at the show. Hope you get lots of good ideas.

    That's too bad about your friend's family. Hopefully they'll come around some day and see how happy she is.

    I just went through my 500+ pictures on my Canon DSLR camera from last summer and deleted lots of them. I got it down to 250 pics. I'm going to upload them to shutterfly and erase them all. I need to be better about erasing pics as I take them so this doesn't happen again. My SIL never erases pics. Even if they are bad pics or pics of nothing. She leaves them and always buys new memory cards. That's too expensive for me.

    Ok...I'm annoyed with photobucket. I was going to post some pics and I resized it all the way down to tiny and it still shows up huge. Am I doing something wrong?
