Cautiously optimistic!

Well, the Clomid seems to have worked this month!!! WOOHOO!!!

We are now in the dreaded waiting window and I go for blood work on Monday to confirm that I did ovulate and they are going to do a pregnancy test as well. We will see.

The house is moving along slowly, I am not sure at this point if we will ever get everything done or not! Even with it being a new house, there are still issues to deal with many of them are because the house has been sitting empty for so long that things have just got to be adjusted. It will get there eventually, just kind of frustrating in the meantime.

Long time no update

Well we are moved into the house after much drama.

Stupid banking that pushed back our closing to the following Friday, we had to apply for an extension on the contract so we didn't lose the house.

Moving day came and went without too much drama, just me cutting my finger on a chopper blade, then dropping things on my toe to the point I thought I had broken it! We are getting settled, our first trash pick up is this week and it's going to be a big one! We have tons of boxes and trash to go out and I hope our trash people are understanding about it all!

It's so exciting to have our own place for the first time in 2 years, it's nice and quiet. We don't have to worry about bothering someone else or touching someone else's things...what a wonderful feeling! Plus, we just have the space to move around. We had been staying in one room for 2 years so to have a whole house to stretch out in is a little strange, but wonderful.

I had my annual doctor appointment and we are moving forward with the next step in fertility stuff. I started taking the meds last Thursday and have to start testing for ovualation this week just to see if it's going to work at all or if we have to adjust the dosage a little bit. I was pretty happy not to have any side effects aside from one little bout with frustration during the move, but I think that was more move related as opposed to hormone related. I go for follow up blood work a week from Monday to see if it did in fact work this month. I am not going to hold my breath that it did until the bloodwork confirms it!

Okay, I think that catches me up...we don't have the internet at home yet, so I can only update at work, but I am going to try to get better about writing more. I think it's a really good thing for me!
