One Fabulous Friday

Sorry I've been MIA for the past couple of days. I have been busy at work and actually caught up for once and trying to make some final decisions on the house at night. It has been a great couple of days.

Wednesday we got the best news we have had in a LONG time. The house will be ready at most in 5 weeks!!!!!! That is only 35 days!!!!!!!! However, since things are moving so fast, we have to hurry and select everything. So, this afternoon Michael and I are both leaving work at lunch to go look at granite, hardwood, and lighting. I am getting so excited! I can't wait to be back in my house, organized and decorate, and just sit on the patio! It won't be long now!!!! We will be going by the house today and I'll take some pictures. You won't believe how much has been done this week!

Yesterday we all got great news when Baby Harper went home after spending 20 days in NICU!!!!!!!!! I have never been so happy for a family as I was for them yesterday! I hope they are doing well today and that they had a good first night at home. :-)

This morning I went to my OB for my follow up. Everything is looking good and my HCG is back to zero, which is awesome because it took almost 6 weeks last time, so that is half the time! I love my OB more and more each time I see him. First, I never have to wait, and he seems to understand my situation. Today he said something that I have never had a dr tell me and it made me so happy to hear. He said that he knows that it is hard for me to deal with everyone around me having babies, coming in his office, or when someone asks about it. He takes so much time and really tries to understand how I feel. That is a lot more than I can say for my old OB, and she was a woman! Anyway, we are starting my workup on March 4 with an ultrasound with dye injected to check for any uterine problems. If that doesn't show anything, then we move onto genetic testing if I choose to do so. Yes, I will choose to do that. I am not comfortable trying again until we have a cause for all of this.

Be sure to check in tonight for pics of the house and maybe some pics of some of what we select this afternoon! Oh, and I am super excited because since it is Friday and I don't have patients today, I got to wear my super adorable purple ballet flats (my most favorite shoes!)!!!

Good luck with your house and with your HSG test. I too suffered from infertility for 2 years and had the same test done.

I hope you get some answers.

You sound so happy and excited today about all that is going on in your life. I'm glad I stopped by and checked in with you.

How come I haven't been following your blog all this time? That's totally random.

Glad you dropped by to say hello, so I can keep up with you!

Will be praying for your testing!! May God shed some light and bring forth some answers.

SO SO glad everything is looking up!!! I saw somewhere (maybe on a comment on La's blog?) that you might be coming up soon! I'd love to see you too, so let me know!

And, by the way, if you decided to move to Murfreesboro, that'd be okay too! ;-)
