Sorry it's been so long

But there is just not much to post right now. We did another Femara cycle and today is day 19. We leave for vacation this friday and I should know if I am knocked up or not by the time we get back. Yes, I am packing pregnancy tests in my suitcase.

I actually had a really good month with the Femara. No side effects at all.

Of course several days after the drug was totally out of my system I started feeling that achey feeling I have had several times with the Rx. Turned out to be some weird bug. I was fine that morning, started feeling horrible after a few hours at work. Left early with a fever, chills and the feeling that I had been hit by a semi.

I spent the rest of the day sleeping with the exception of a small break to whine until the Husband cooked me chicken and dumplings. It was pretty good chicken and dumplings too, but it would have been better if he didn't have to wake me up every step of the process to ask what to do next.

My fever broke around 3:30 the next morning and I have been fine since.

We are waiting for the rain and winds from the Hurricane/Tropical Storm hitting the area. We don't expect too much from it, but it's best to be prepared.

All in all it has been a pretty boring month and I am looking forward to vacation and coming back here with good news.

Why won't they just return the call?

Okay, so I'm not pregnant and I need to refill my Femara rx. I started my cycle on Friday and was busy so I didn't get a chance to call the Dr's office to ask them to call it in to my pharmacy. Shouldn't be a problem since I don't need to start taking it until Tuesday night.

I call them first thing Monday morning. I leave a very detailed message about who I am and what I need and that I need it soon. They don't call back. So I call again Tuesday morning. I tell the receptionist my issue. I always leave messages and they never call back. She transfers me to another person's voicemail. This one has a message promising a call back by the end of the day. At 4:43 P.M. I place another call stating that I need the meds now and I know they are getting ready to close. After another 10 minutes on hold, I finally get a nurse who promises to call it in. I really could have saved myself a lot of trouble and just called in 5 minutes before they closed.

All I need to do is blog

Apparently, all I need to do is blog to get my next cycle to start. Guess I need to call the Dr's Office today to get a refill on my Femara. I used my last refill last month.

I am trying really hard to not get too worked up or discouraged, but it is getting harder and harder.

The son and girlfriend of a friend of a friend are pregnant. Three months so far. He is 19 and in college, but taking a break to work off some debt . The girl is 18 and works part time at a decent job considering she is young and only a high school graduate. They are living with his mother (the friend of my friend) because the girl's family life if highly unstable (Mom's in jail for a domestic between her and her pregnant daughter) and the friend of my friend ( we will call her Marsha) feels that the only reason the girl (who shall now be known as Suzy) is having the baby is because she thinks it ensures her of a place to live with the boyfriend (not known as Rob)and Marsha.

Marsha sat down with Bob and Suzy and explained to them that this was their decision, but the needed to understand that she would not be supporting their new family and that they needed to figure out how they were going to make this work. Bob seems to really not care what happens, but Suzy is caught up in the baby excitement and convinced it will all work out.

Marsha mentioned adoption to them and they did not shoot the idea down, but they didn't jump at it either. Suzy is taking the lead and all she has on her mind is how cool it will be to dress the baby up and play house. Marsha is convinced that they will see the truth soon enough and maybe meet with the Husband and I to discuss the option of us adopting the baby. We are happy to involve them in the baby's life to a certain extent. Lots of pictures and updates, invitations to birthday parties and maybe a few visits a year.

Who knows if they will decide to consider adoption and if so, if they would even consider us. I can't help but be a little excited thinking about it. We never intended to pursue private adoption. The whole thought is a bit scary and uncertain, but so is life and if something falls into our laps, then who are we to dismiss the possibility.

The baby is due in January. There is still plenty of time for all kinds of things to happen. I will post as we hear more.
