I love that my husband is home!

We have a consultation scheduled with our RE in two weeks. Michael's travel schedule is pretty light in October/November, so we're hoping to schedule IVF in that time frame. I'm nervous about the whole thing.

Here I was all worried that my period would start too soon, and now I'm wondering if it will ever start! Maybe I'll call today and ask the nurse if I should be concerned.

On my first day on WW I managed to go over my points allotment by 12.5 points, thank you very much! I was doing fine until we went to his parents' for dinner. I can't pass up his mom's cooking - she's a great cook. So, I'll have to watch it today, and try to get some exercise.

We're shopping for a lawnmower on Craig's List. Michael is the new gardener. I think this will be good for both of us. I'll get out there and care for my plants while he grooms the lawn. We learned from one of my brothers-in-law (I have seven of those now!) that we need a rotary, not a reel mower. Michael was all set to get a reel mower until we had that conversation, and that would not be good for our (mostly) fescue lawn. Who knew?

I guess that's it for now. Have a good one!

I am thinking good thoughts for your IVF! I have to say, sometimes it is difficult for me to read, because it brings back so many mmemories of our IF. It is such a rollercoaster...

Joannah, honey, those meds will make each and every cycle different from what you are used to. Acupuncture might help you feel more "normal" amidst all of this. I loved it myself & have heard that it is even more useful when doing IVF.

Hi there J,
I have been a faithful reader of your blogg for a couple of months(just havent commented until today!)

Just wanted to let you know that I have gone through all the pain and heartache that you are going through right now and that I today sit here with a 9 month old daughter!

I am praying that you very soon will experience the same joy!

Keep the faith--and NEVER give up!

(Oh, BTW how many points are you allowed to eat per day when you are on WW?)
