Yesterday was blah.  My head was pounding half of the day and I felt like I was in a fog.  My chest started hurting and I felt like I did when they told me I needed another surgery.  I wasn't even thinking about the week or anything.  The pain just came on out of nowhere. 

We kept Hayden for Liz last night.  He's the perfect baby!  He was so quiet!!  He ate his dinner and played with all of our superhero toys.  He pulled up on everything and even acted like he was going to walk.  It was nice to get to play with him and get some snuggle time in.

Hayden reminded me of why we're doing all of this. =) Sometimes having a baby seems so far away.  There is always some obstacle in the way; surgery, recovery, sperm, medicines, etc.  We have been trying for about 1.5 years now.  I cannot believe we've made it this far.  I cannot believe we're still getting along (haha)!  This whole process has been extremely stressful for us, but we've done the best we can.  Infertility does NOT come with a handbook. =)

This Week!

Thursday is Brandon's last day with his job.  He's been a Property Manager for well over 10 years.  I am so proud of him, and cannot wait for him to start his new job with HD Supply next week. 

The weekend was great!  After work on Saturday, I went to Rachel's Pageant at PHS.  It's been 8 years since I graduated high school, and I had some emotions walking through those doors again!  Rachel made Top 25 and I had a fun time looking at all the pretty dresses.  =)  Yesterday we got up and went to church, ate breakfast, and took a nap.  I think I slept for about 3 hours, and I needed it.  I was starting to feel like I was getting sick.  Once we were both up, we started preparing our taxes and cleaning.  You don't even want to know about our taxes!  Even though we spent so much on fertility issues, we somehow OWE this year.  I am irate!!  BUT we vacuumed the floors, B cleaned both bathrooms, I did laundry, and we actually put away some of the laundry! ;-) 

Brandon's Mom is coming to town on Friday, so I wanted the house to be clean.  Also, there's no way I was going to sit around after surgery looking at a dirty house.  Hopefully this week will run smoothly.  I have too much to do this week!!

February 3rd

My surgery is set for next Friday.  I am thrilled that Dr. Allemand was able to fit me into his surgery schedule.  They said that they would call me next Thursday with the actual time.

What sucks is that it's the beginning of the year and we haven't met our deductible yet.  I paid $956 today.  =(  I'm glad that we have a savings account, but it still hurt to spend that much money!!  At least we had it.  I know it will all be worth it when I have my sweet baby in my arms!


I had no idea that I would ever reach this many page views.
