I was just thinking about how nice it would be for me to get a BFP this cycle, since it would be right after our anniversary and my EDD would be March 28, which is right before D's birthday. I just wish I could be more hopeful about it.
I also spent way too much time last night researching cloth diapers for a baby yet to be conceived. I'm sure I want to use cloth; I'm just deciding on which to use.

I'm currently on CD 14, so I'll probably o next Saturday, July 5 (CD 21).
D has said quite a few sweet things in the last week, especially last night. I love him so much. I'm really looking forward to him being home during the week in another week or two. We're going to Austin for a party for my aunt, uncle and cousin on July 4th.

I'm trying to figure out how to deal with the fact that we probably won't be moving forward to the RE for a while (at least 6 months or a year). This will especially be an issue if we don't do another round of clomid. I really just want to have some answers about what's going on and why it's taking a while, and I hate that I'm just having to keep waiting and hoping that it will work soon.

The little girl, S, that I nanny had a bunch of bathroom accidents today, so that was great fun. The little boy, W, is starting to cruise and be able to sort of walk if you hold his hands. I hadn't seen them in about two weeks, so W had changed a lot.
My ex-best friend from high school, who I had a falling-out with senior year, friended me on Facebook. I hadn't talk to her in at least 8 or more years.
D will be out of town again next week, but he's off for the 4th of July so he'll be back Thursday. I should hopefully o on the 5th, which is Saturday. If I'm off on the 4th (up in the air right now...I should find out tomorrow), we are going to a party my aunt and uncle are throwing near Austin. It would also mean that I'd get a chance to see my grandparents and possibly my brother.

Update: I call my dr's office and talked to the nurse. I'm now waiting for her to call back after talking to the dr.
Update to update: I'm going in for b/w tomorrow when I get back from Memphis, so hopefully my dr can figure out what's going on.

D is going to go out of town and I may or not be able to join him. I might be able to go up with his co-worker (who is our friend) tomorrow if I don't have to work until Thursday.

I'm so tired of waiting. I'm tired of TI. I'm tired of worrying about whether our timing will be good. I just want to be pregnant, so one of these days I can have a child with blonde hair and blue eyes. Only two more cycles before we hit cycle 12, and with my lovely cycles I'm only going to be on cycle 10 after trying for a year.
I haven't really gone anywhere other than lunch or dinner in Memphis so far. I should probably do something tomorrow.

We are visiting our parents this weekend for Father's Day. We took our dads to see Indiana Jones today and we are going to dinner with both families tonight. I got the bridesmaid's dress for J, my SIL's, wedding and although I ordered 2 sizes too big in case I was pregnant, it's actually pretty close to fitting. The back at the top need to be taken in, but surprisingly the waist fits pretty well. Sadly, I have no chance of being more than about 6-7 weeks pregnant (if that) at the wedding.

I'll be going out of town tomorrow to visit our parents then to Memphis for a business trip with D, since I have a week or two off since the kids I nanny went to go stay with their grandparents while their mom studies for her end of residency board test. I'm very glad that he's going out of town when I can go with him. I'll need to figure out some things to do in Memphis other than hang out at the hotel like I usually do. While we are home visiting our parents, we are going to take our dads to see Indiana Jones.

I’m so frustrated and disappointed. We are almost at 11 months TTC. Only 2 more cycles and it will be officially infertility. I don’t know what to do since we can’t afford to move on to an RE yet. I’m just stuck here hoping against hope that my body can actually do this, which is seeming less likely every cycle. I’m really hoping that the rest of today doesn’t turn out as crappy as this morning has.
There was thunder and lightning most of last night so I didn’t sleep well. It rained earlier and now it’s just grey and overcast. I just wanted to go home and go to sleep, but I got off work too late to take a nap.

D and I spent the afternoon trying to get rid of as much wisteria as possible. The vines were everywhere and we must have dug up over 100 feet of root. I hate that stuff. The problem is that we won't be able to completely get rid of it since some of the roots are on our neighbor's side of the fence. We also washed D's car, and afterwards I realized that my back and shoulder got sunburned :(.
D has been losing weight, partly for a contest a work. I was very excited when he said today that he thinks his sex drive is coming back.

The kids I nanny for are very funny. W is 9 months old and S is 2 1/2 years old. W is crawling and pulling up, but he's not scooting yet. He really loves his walker, and rolls around most of the house with it. He's been a bit cranky the last few days; it may be teething. S is being potty trained so she can go to PK-3 in August. She does pretty well and goes on her own without prompting, but only when she's naked. She hasn't realized that she needs to get on the potty when she needs to go even when she is wearing underwear or a pull-up.

D has got what we think are bed bug bites all over his back and arms. He was out of town for work, and stayed in a hotel. He started noticing them on Sunday I think and we have been giving him benadryl to keep the swelling down. I hope that they clear up soon.
We went home for my youngest brother K's high school graduation this weekend (actually graduation was Monday). We got to see some friends we hadn't see in a while, so that was fun. My other two brothers were in town, and I don't get to see them much. Monday was also D's youngest sister, R's 21st birthday. We went up to visit her on Monday night and then drove back yesterday morning. We are planning on going home for Father's Day since I need to pick up the dress for my other SIL, J's wedding since MIL is picking them up this week.
