So Sucks

I am really bummed for my sister. After her second IUI she is not pregnant. Then to add salt to the wounds she is not able to try again this month since her follicles are still enlarged.


I know she will try it one more time but then I think she is going to try to come to terms with the fact that she may never have a baby.

I wish I could just make this better for her. I wish I could just wish her pregnant. I guess if it were that easy she would have been pregnant a long time ago.

It is just hard because the doctors keep telling them that there is nothing physically wrong that is preventing her from getting pregnant. Yet it isn't working.

How do you know when to stop trying? How do you stop wondering? Again I wish I had the answers for her.

Pregnancy Thoughts

I know I have been a bad blogger lately but I have had so much going on and so much stress that I usually don't know where to begin. I have had a lot things I wanted to blog about but not the time or energy.

But I feel the need to write this down since I am really worried about my sister as I type. She is in the middle of her 2 week wait after her second IUI. She is really really really bloated and had pain on her lower abdomen last night.

She called her doctor who told her to come in right away for an ultrasound. I am worried for her. I know she wants to be pregnant more than anything. I am scared she is not pregnant or worse that something is wrong. She had 4 chances with this cycle so I hope and pray one of those eggs lets the swimmer in.

I hope she is ok. I am going crazy waiting to hear from her.

**update** She just called. I guess her ovaries are enlarged and she is not allowed to exercise and needs to eat light until they are back to normal. This could be from the fertility drugs and she needs to call them back if it doesn't get better. She can take a pregnancy test on 11/25 so I really hope that comes back positive.

Damn Toy Makers

In the latest round of toy recalls is Aquadots. This was a highly coveted item for my daughter and I purchased it a few weeks ago to make sure we had it before the huge holiday rush.

Now it is going back to the store and I will have to break the news that this is not an option.

I am thinking the fact that it turns into the equivalent drug reaction of a date rpe drug is not a good thing for a 5 year old.

What I would really like to know is how do these things happen? And what are we doing about it?

Go Purple for Adoption

Elle had a great idea of using purple for National Adoption Awareness Month.

I am attempting it.

You should too. She has a cool button but I can't get it to work here. :-(

Cancer Free

What wonderful words to hear today.

I talked to my friend's husband who said they removed all of the cancer on the right side during her double mastectomy. There were no cancer cells on the left side. They took 6 lymph nodes and those all came back negative.

She has no other treatments needed other than the reconstruction.

I am so happy for her I cannot even begin to express it.
