Thanks for the love, and sorry for the lack of updates. The last 2 weeks have been crazy with a captial "C"! Since I quit my job, I needed to start looking for a new one. I apparently had job-hunting amnesia and forgot how isane it was! So I now have a new job that starts this week. Whew.

On the fertility front: Of course, during all of the job craziness there were also 3 doctors appointments. They were all good news so far. MRI results = no surgery needed, just a wierd shaped uterus. We also had 3 follicles this month (yeah!) and an IUI so we are VERY hopeful that at least one of them will stick (preferably not all 3). If they don't stick, then we are breaking out the big guns. Bring on the IVF. I am not sure how the IVF and the new job will mix but it should be interesting. I really hope that this month works and that I am balancing OB appointments and the new job instead. Of course, we just have to wait.

In the tube (MRI)

I spent 2 hours in a very loud tube today. It was way fun :-(
I guess it wasn't so bad. I got to wear pants (which is more than I can say for most of my appointments). I had been warned about the tube and the noise but I did not know that they were going to shoot me up with all sorts of stuff. An IM injection and an IV were not on my radar. Although I am not afriad of needles, whatever they gave me made me sick. It did give me an excuse head straight home to my comfy couch. I am feeling better now. I even got some sympathy from hubby. He ordered us some pizza and we are watching one of my favorite movies. I doubt I will hear about the results for a week or so. Since everything takes so frickin long we figured we could get in one more cycle before doing surgery. So tomorrow begins yet another round of drugs and fun. Yee Haw!

Not too much to update with. My MRI is tomorrow and I am not sure what to expect. I understand what they are in theory, but the last time I was told a procedure would take no time and be painless, it was the exact opposite. So we will see.
Today begins another cycle and I am not sure what we are doing with it. I am assuming that we are doing the same old thing and then will maybe do surgery next month depending on the results.
In the meantime, I am looking for a new job and keeping busy.

Don't get too excited...
Another negative result but my positive outlook is intact this month (no ice cream necessary :-)

I didn't expect much this time around with my one measly little follicle, ovulation during my red-eye flight, and being surrounded by a house full of family during primo timing. I did hope that it would happen mainly so that I could tell my future offspring that they were truly a southern child. Not in the cards I guess.
What is in the cards is an MRI for me on Friday. Oh boy. I have never had one and am not looking forward to it, but if it brings me one step closer then I am all for it.

As for now I am polishing my resume and reading lots of newspapers so I can sound like I know what the hell I am talking about in a job interview that I hope comes my way. Somebody's got to want me, right?

Happy New Year!

I hope all is well and everyone is starting off 2007 with a bang.

I started mine off by quitting my job. I gave notice yesterday but will probably have to work for another month or so. I need a break from the mom & baby biz. SO my New Years resolution is to get myself a new j.o.b.
Almost all of my experience and education falls under the mom & baby catagory (ironic huh?) so now I am entering new territory. Wish me luck!
