Playing catch up...

I haven't been blogging so much lately because, quite frankly, I haven't had the time. I am so busy this time of year, as are all of us. On top of the holidays, we are approaching year end at work which literally means, I must make sure all the "t's" are crossed, and the "i's" are dotted. Busy, busy, busy. So, the excitement that I once possessed for this time of year is starting to dwindle, as it does each year about this time. Now I start feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and restless until about mid-Feb when I finally feel like I can breath again.

Not too much to share on the infertility front. AF should be arriving on Thanksgiving day unless by some unforeseen miracle she doesn't come. However, we been trying for FOREVER (2 yrs 3 mo. since my last miscarriage; 4yrs 4 mo. all together), so I'm not really looking for any unexpected surprises. I did begin an herbal supplement a month or so ago to improve my reproduction health. I hope it will help to get my FSH to decrease. (Last checked it was 14 which isn't too high, but should be less than 10.)

K and I haven't talked any more about IVF. I think we both know that we just don't have the funds right now to do that. If we must resolve to do IVF, there really isn't so much of a time restraint as I am 28 now(he's 31), and have been told we'd probably have to use donor eggs anyway. I think about it everyday still--should I? Shouldn't I? I just can't find enough pros that out weigh the cons, especially taken on the emotional and financial stress should it fail since our insurance doesn't cover IVF. Point blank--I'm scared!

Something to look forward to, K surprised me with an early birthday present by buying me tickets to go see this band. They are my favorite band and I can not wait to see them live again. They will be playing in Charlotte 2 days before my birthday. How exciting!!!!!

Thanksgiving is 2 days away. I can't wait to eat, nap, and eat some more. I love taking naps on Thanksgiving. I love napping any day actually, but I love that I can eat as much as I want, and blame my sleeping on the turkey.

As you gather around your tables this week and thank God for all he has given you, don't forget those unable to attend the festivities with his/her family who are serving in the military. Whether you agree or disagree with the war, at least support our troops while they are there.

Happy Thanksgiving!
