WE really SHOULD invest in a new one and I'd love to go the whole wireless route especially with Minnie Mouse on her way to not be "trapped" in what is currently the den but will turn INTO the guest room/den... but alas... Husband does need wheels to work first and foremost! :)
So... just a little fun for a FRIDAY....
How far along: 22 Weeks
Net weight gain/loss: up 16lbs at my appt yesterday (YIKES)
Maternity clothes: yes... though funny, I'm not wearing ANY today :) just a stretchy skirt and tanks that are long enough to cover the belly :)
Stretch marks: none that I have seen so far
Belly button: still an innie but turning white at the top from stretching... weird
Sleep: comes and goes...up 2-3 times to p at night and weird dreams keep me tossing and turning
Baby movement: YEP! Def. getting kicked and poked. Husband has felt it a couple of times and Sky got to feel it in church on Sunday :) Loved seeing her eyes get all big :)
Food cravings: Juice and those that know me know that I don't waste insulin on things like JUICE (empty calories) but I could SO go for HUGE glasses of JUICE!!!
Food aversions: Hamburger BLECK...(still)
What I miss: Long DEEP sleep (still), being able to sit comfortably in my work chair
Looking forward to: Starting vacation this afternoon and getting a BUNCH of projects done around the house next week!!!
Best moment this week: Sky feeling Minnie Mouse kick her
Milestones: She's bigger than a Bar bi e doll :)

No pics were taken at FND (Friday Night Dinner) but I think I made up for it on Saturday! :) We had an impromptu hang out with friends and family at L&L's pool! The weather was stella (that's Northern New England talk right they-yah) :) and the food was even BETTER! Right Mama H?? I like that she grabs hold of Sky to try and make it seem like it is SKY who ate all the straight up chocolate sauce but we all know better... wink wink! :) There was also some fun of trying to figure out who had bigger/STRONGER arms!? Mama H or Mama S?

Do you have a guess?? (Do you LOVE the foot above the nose? hee hee hee)
How about NOW? :) Oh yes... BRING ON THE PINK! or rather the funky celery green, bohemian crunchy hippy clothes and dirt under painted finger nails... The house is now "even".... two boys... (Husband and Reebsie) and two girls... (Mama and yet to be named but for the blogs sake...AND THE BLOG SAKE ONLY BECAUSE I'M NOT A DI$NEY FAN...) MINNIE MOUSE!
We could not be MORE thrilled :) She was healthy and measuring right on track...
I am psyched because Husband will be THE BEST Daddy to a little girl (puh-leeze, how much experience with little ladies has he HAD!?) :) and I can't WAIT to get started on HER room. Can you say funky, eclectic and hippy-crunchy? :) Can't WAIT!
Plus... someone is going to have to boss these two around! :) Watch out my little men...you'd better HOPE she is more like your Uncle than your Ant who likes to coordinate and ORGANIZE! :) HEE HEE HEE

On Friday, March 27th, 2009 I called Pat. I was sad, frustrated and disappointed in my body. She asked what cycle day I was on and I told her... 50. I had not had a period in 50 days...my body had not done what it was "supposed" to each month and what it HAD done med free in both November and December... her response "What are you waiting for?" :) Love her. I told her it was time and she probably needed to call me in an Rx for Prometrium in order to induce AF so we could run another cycle. She told me that to follow protocol I had to take a PG test before I started the meds. (BAH!)
I called Husband and asked him to pick it up so we could start it that night. For those of you that know the family well, you know that more often than not we have "Friday Night Dinner" (FND)at Mother in Love's house. Well, that particular Friday night, SIL L had a Dr's appt at the town next to our house and MIL was going to be in the same town running errands anyway so I suggested that we just have FND at our house and order pizza.
After dinner the family all left and Husband and I had to run out to vote in our town. Begrudgingly I p'd on the stick that I knew would once again pop up negative and ran down the stairs to head to the town hall with Husband. Nope. Did NOT wait for the results. I KNEW what the results would be... I didn't need to wait for them.
We got home about a 1/2 hour later and I dragged myself up the stairs to throw the test away...but something caught my eye... wait. What WAS THAT? Was that TWO lines? NO? Seriously?
I grabbed the test (So much for romantically telling Husband over a candlelight dinner) and RAN BACK DOWNSTAIRS!!! I threw the test in front of his face and screamed "HOW MANY LINES DO YOU SEE!?!?!?!?!?!?" His classic response.... "Two. How many are there supposed to be?" :) I love that man! I seriously and purely and with all my being LOVE that man! :)
Neither of us believed it. I was spinning around the living room and we were trying to figure out how much longer before I could take another test... I drank more water and took another one about 15 min. later. It read the same thing. POSITIVE.
We decided (read: I decided) that I would take another test in the AM and then he was going to Wal*Mart to buy a digital test if the generic one showed up positive because I wanted one of those tests to actually TELL ME I WAS PREGNANT!
I called Pat that AM and had to leave a message on her cell phone (you know you are REALLY into infertility treatments when you have your RN's cell phone) letting her know that I wasn't going to take the meds. She called me back worried that something happened and was wrong and I told her that no... I just didn't NEED to take them because... I WAS PREGNANT!!!! She was BESIDE herself thrilled and got me scheduled right away for bloodwork and an ultrasound that Monday AM to see if we could determine how far along I was. It was still really early so we went again 5 days later... and there... we saw "Rice Baby's" heartbeat for the first time... At which, of course, I SOBBED :) And then... a few weeks after that... sure enough... there was the begining of "Teenie Mouse" :)
And here... on the date that marks 1/2 way through my pregnancy (20 Weeks Today), concludes, Fertility Friday posts... It was not the journey I expected to take, nor the outcome I expected to happen WITH NO MEDS but I'm SO thankful that is OUR story and that we can give ALL THE GLORY TO GOD for this little person set to arrive in Nov/Dec.
Thanks for all of you for being on this journey... now which one of you is with me when this little teenie person comes out and is screaming in the middle of the night for no apparant reason? Hello? Is this thing on? WHICH ONE OF YOU? :)
