Short & ... eh.. short.

Round 1 was a no go... Gall bladder surgery is scheduled for Friday. (will be confirmed on Thursday) DH & I are moving 2 hrs away on the evening of my surgery. Yeah, nice timing. Hince, the reason I haven't blogged--packing!! And the fact that we've canceled internet and I only have it now and then when a nice neighbor wants to send me some WiFi. :) Off to pack some more! ...

I know---In need of a specialist...

I went to my "random d25 OB appt" today. I waited an hr and a half in the waiting room. Then they told me that my doc had to go deliver a baby. So, I went home for lunch, then came back an hr later. I wanted for almost ANOTHER hour and a half... and the nurse said "Umm... he said it was too early for you to come in. Come back next week." ---- SERIOUSLY??? I mean, I knew it was too early to come in anyway but I thought "Jen, you're not a dr.. just listen to them. You've never done this b4." *sigh* So after sitting in the waiting area for a total of 3 hrs & seeing lots and lots of preggo bellies, I decided to go get an iced carmel mocha. It was delicious.

Now, I get to twiddle my thumbs again until the 18th. :/ I'm telling myself it's okay. God is good. His timing is perfect..... Patience.... Faith.

Monday, August 10, 2009 bonjangles

After my last post, I got a positive on my OPT. Since it's the 1st BFP on an OPT in my LIFE, I was a little psyched to say the least! So, I ran a quick 3 miles to calm my nerves. (Yep, it was definitely about 3 min faster than my normal time...)

Right now I'm just waiting for my random appt on Wednesday. Still not sure why the OB is wanting to see me on day 25, but we'll see. We'll be moving back to our hometown the end of the month. So, I'll be switching doctors soon anyway.

As far as the computer situation-- we got a 'hand-me-down' from my family. Yay! We already cut off our internet, so now I have to park at the Bojangles down the street and steal free WiFi. :) ... ghetto.

Apathetic Doc???

Hmmm-- so should I be concerned that my doc is not monitoring me until day 25? I've looked at several blogs who are being monitored a lot more frequently... :/

Computer Viruses & BFNs...

Okay-- so I'm trying to type as fast as I can. I have no idea how long my computer is going to hold up before it crashes again! It has a lovely virus & has prevented me from responding to several of you who've commented on my blog. :(

Quick update: I'm on day 18 and still getting BFN on my OPTs. (by the way, if I misuse an abbreviation, just smile and knod and think "well, she tried.") :) I'm a little frustrated about not getting any positives. Charting my temp also aggrivates me b/c I can't remember to do it every day!! Grrr.. I have a dr. appt on day 25. So hopefully he can give me a little bit of insight.

However-- another factor being thrown into this: gall bladder. I've had issues with mine since I was in 2nd grade. I've had 2 ultra sounds on it, both showing no stones. But since ALL the women on BOTH sides of my family have either had it out or wished they had it out, I know it's going to happen. It's been bothering me A LOT lately. I have always watched what I eat (little to no greasy, spicy, or dairy food). But now, it doesn't matter what I do, I'm getting that stabbing pain in my back shoulder. A lot of times it's not too painful, but still there when I breath in.

So-- here's the plan. If this round of clomid doesn't work: I'm going to beg my doc to take that thing out! My mom had a HORRIBLE pregnancy with me b/c of her gall bladder. If the clomid does work: I'm going to see a nutritionist to see if there's anything we can do naturally to keep it in check.

Ultimately? I've been praying ... but not really one way or the other. God knows how badly I want to be pregnant, but He also knows how much of a wimp I am when it comes to pain. I'm just trusting Him. We'll see how it turns out!
