Fun stuff for Friday

TGIF!!!!! I spent all night obsessing about my low E2. Praying for at least a doubling number at tomorrows monitoring appt. If it keeps doubling, I'll be happy.

I *am* starting to feel some stuff going on in the ovary area. I'm getting a little discomfort, almost like constipation. Also, my EWCM is kicking into gear, so seeing that this morning made me feel a little bit better. Here's to hoping I'm just starting out slow. Worse case scenario...they cancel my cycle. So far, all I've had is b/w, so it would be a relatively cheap "mistake." Another worst case scenario is I guess they might convert me to an IUI, based on how many mature follicles I may have.

Alright, enough of that.

A very good friend of mine is due around the time of my ET. Her shower was a few weeks ago, and I made this blanket for her new little boy:-) It's a bittersweet situation, in that she got pregnant with Dr. K's help, on her first IUI + Clomid cycle. It's hard for me to grasp why I am still trying when it worked for her the first time.

In book news...I just read a really great history fiction book about Mary Lincoln. I highly recommend it! http://www.amazon.com/Mary-Janis-Cooke-Newman/dp/015603347X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1236357924&sr=1-2

I started The Bluest Eye by Toni MOrrison, but could just NOT get into it. I hate to not finish a book, but there are so many other good ones to read, so I threw in the towel.

I'm now reading The Girl Who Stopped Swimming, and like it so far. I've read the authors other 2 books and really liked them. http://www.amazon.com/Girl-Who-Stopped-Swimming/dp/0446579653/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1236357997&sr=1-1

The family drama continues. I want to write about it here, but I just don't want the wrong eyes to see it. Technology is scary sometimes.

I'm hoping to have a good weekend, and maybe get Sally adopted:-)
