Whatever Floats Your Boat

Back from a week long cruise and finally have my land legs back, and now I am on the IVF crazy train.

First things first, the cruise. We (Scott and his family) took a week long cruise to Alaska. While I would not recommend NCL for a cruise, but Alaska is beautiful! We stopped in Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. We also stopped in Prince Ruppert, Canada. Nothing too exciting there but it was nice to say that I walked in Canada. Canada, eh?!

I really thought I would have a lot more to say about this cruise but amazingly, I don't. Odd.

I am been in a real funk lately. I know it is directly related to my upcoming IVF. This is my last chance. My last chance of getting pregnant. My last chance to have a child of my own. I won't hold out hope that I can be one of those women who get their miracle after all this time of trying.

Ok, add the IVF funk to the fact that once again my house is a mess and it makes for a grumpy and funky me. I need to get my booty back to the gym and get those endorphins pumping. Then, do a serious shopping trip so I can finish up Scott's birthday shopping. After that, I need to take a can of whip ass out and whip this house clean. Ok, cleaning does not make me feel better but chilling in a clean house sure does. Gosh, I wonder how long it will be before the boys get it that I expect them to clean their bathroom. Maybe I should do it myself and put the rugs back and the rug on top of the toilet seat. Muuuuuhhahahahaha!

I am not sure how I am holding up. I had a few moments of sadness and threatend tears but no crying yet. I sorta viewed my FET like a IUI. I went into my FET, esp. after finding out that 1 out the 3 survived with caution. I knew it could work but I also kept in m mind that it may not work.

Onto IVF #2. Wow...whoda thunk it?

Sad day for hockey fans

Hockey fans today got the heart breaking news that Jeremy Roenick retired. He will be missed. I would write a long commentary about him but to be honest real tears will flow from my eyes.

Inspiration Award

Sherry at My3Doggies nominated me for this award. First of all, I would like to give a big hug and thank you to Sherry. I believe she is such a wonderful person and feel her blog deserves this award. Every time I read her blog, I smile with her, cry for her and wish I knew her in real life. Sherry, thank you!

I am going to pass this award onto the Infertility Warrior, Barb at Fertility Challanged in Fl. and Dee at I'm Not Ashamed. I am not linking these blogs to respect their privacy. These ladies are wonderful bloggers, wonderful people and great inspirations.

Hee, bet you were all expecting a FET update. I don't have one. ET went fine, transferred one 3day 8 celled embryo. Now in the dreaded 2WW until my beta. I want to know either way since we are going on a cruise a few days after my beta. I don't know how I feel I right now. I alternate between thinking positive, not thinking about it at all to thinking completely negative.
