Brie- I know what you mean about doing what you got to do and just doing it. Still sucky to have to miss out though. You can always dress her up and take pictures for yourself. I love our dogs, but also have the same feelings about them some time one more than the other. We have a highly energetic dog that is sweet, but barks like crazy. She has a way of really trying your patience. Sometimes I think I could give her to someone that would cope with her better, but another part of me loves her too much. It's difficult feeling torn like that. I had a dog growing up that I was really attatched, too. I feel like my relationship with my dogs don't compare all that well. I feel like it's our fault too for not training them better, but at the same time no matter what we've tried hasn't stopped the barking.
Alix- That's exciting. I hope that baby cooperates and that they will be about to tell!
AFM- I have to work an extra hour cause of day light saving time which I'm not very thrilled about. Blah. Still fighting the nasal drainage and cough. This is getting old really fast. On the otherhand I hope this means I can get it out of the way so I don't have to deal with any sickness while going through all the IVF stuff.

Amy: Turk is very special to me and DH, he is what started our relationship and we definitely feel like hes our kid. Kasey saved my life, and I loved her more than anything for a very long time.. I'd give anything to have her back, but of course, thats nearly impossible. I worked in rescue for years, and I hate it when people view their pet as "just a dog". It seems to just make them like "oh, thats just a purse" "or just a couch, bed etc".. Your pet should be special. Especially if they came from the shelter or rescue. Someone else gave them up because they weren't special or whatever. idk. I don't baby my dogs, but I do believe they are family. I feel horrible that I can't feel that way about scarlett and therefore, I dont believe I should keep her.. I do care for her, but I dont at the same time because she really drives me crazy and is always eating things she shouldnt.
Alix: Your DH needs to get over himself!! Oh my goodness! The man is a medical professional, he's seen a million hoo hoo's in his career, im sure. That is ridiculous. If he was some creeper who enjoyed sticking his fingers up you in uncomfortable ways for his pleasure, I highly doubt he would still have a medical license! He was trained in that field, its not like hes a random off the street person sticking fingers inside you.He really needs to get over himself because what if your doctor isnt on call when you go into labor and a man has to attend?
It is uncomfortable when you do have a man doctor, but you'll adjust. I have always had Dr. M, until I got PG, and several of my appts she was on call at the hospital and was gone when I had my checkups. I had several men doctors at the practice, and you know what? They were excellent!! In fact, I even liked one of them so much, I refused to be induced unless i either had him or Dr. M. luckily, i didnt need induced and doctor m was on call! I did have a male for my epi, and etc. He is really going to accept that and quit being jealous. An old coworkers husband got so jealous of his wife having a male nurse come to check her, he got asked to leave the premises!
Tara: I've had these feelings about Scarlett, pretty much since about 2 days after I got her. I thought it'd go away as she got older and matured..but shes gotten older and not matured any lol. She just doesnt have what I want in a personality in my dog.. Turk has it, Kasey had it.. Scarlett just doesnt have it..and shes either too inbred to get it or is really just missing a few screws. Not sure which.

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't been on in so long. A lot has gone on.
I got a HUGE promotion at work and I work graveyard now. So I will be posting really late at night/early morning from now on. lol
Started Clomid on cycle days 5-9 of this cycle and have been busy baby making for a couple weeks. I have been talking ovulation tests regularly and they are all negative BUT I didn't take one yesterday or today and I have been having consistent cramps on my lower right side and kind of in the middle. So, I told DH and we got busy and hopefully there is a baby in my near future! I'm not really sure when I'm supposed to test...i'll just wait until the end of the month...I'll test 11/28.
Also, Booger is 5 today!!! Happy Birthday Mr.!!!

Hi everyone! Sorry I didn't really post much this past month! I had gotten my AF October 12 but I also had out of town visitors at my house visiting the kids for the fall events and halloween. It's so nice to have my house back to myself! Anyhoo, this month we tried something a little different since we have been trying since July. I took mucinex right after my AF ended in October up through ovulation. I had a sneaky suspicion that it worked and took a hpt this morning (I'm not due my AF until sometime between this friday and next tuesday) and there is a very faint line! I thought I would share with you! So my EDD from what I am gathering so far is 07/19/2014. I am one happy chick over here! How are all of you ladies doing in your TTC journey?

Alix- Hope your appointment went well.
Faith- Congrats! How exciting!
AFM- Had my first appointment earlier. Got all teared up driving home again... that first little heart beat on the monitor gets me every time! I'm measuring to be due June 27th, so right around what I figured. Go back Dec 11 for my 12 week ultrasound stuff. So exciting.
