Lots of updates

It has been way too long since my last post!! I have been keeping up with everyone via my cell phone. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & New Year! Ours was great! We usually go to my grandmother's every year, but this year she came to us.  It was wonderful not to have to go out of town, but I sure did miss my aunt, uncle & cousins!

As far as IVF goes........i did start the birth control, but I had to stop taking it.  My cycle last month was a disaster! After my surgery in October I had a decided to last FOREVER!! & by that I mean I started taking Prometrium on day 46 & finally started on day 50!! BLAH! Day 1 fell on saturday(new years day) & I called my RE on Monday & I went for blood work & an u/s on Tuesday.  Everything looked good so I started the BCP Tuesday evening.  I made an appointment to go to Mobile on January 17(Yes! this past Monday) this would be our "Timeline" appointment.  We were so excited to finally be doing this process!!! Well after being on BC for over a week, i was still bleeding!! UGH!  It was terrible! I called my RE & she said this was not good news......i was probably having breakthrough bleeding! She said for me to continue the pills & hopefully it would didn't. I called her back saturday morning(I will tell you why I called her on a saturday in a minute) & she said to stop the pills because they were obviously not doing any good.  I finally stopped bleeding today!! Whew!!

Now......the reason I called my RE on saturday is because.......Friday night i went roller skating.  & for anybody that knows me, they know I LOVE to skate! Well, the night had been going good, i was having a blast!  Then, all of a sudden, it was going not good!! I was skating & went to turn around & fell! & boy did I fall! I hit my head & ended up at the ER with a concussion!! Only me ! GEEZ!! So, that's why i called my RE.......I had to cancel my appointment. She told me to stay off the skates!! HAHA!  It would've been pointless to go anyway because of my cycle being so wacko.

I'm doing ok from my's just taken me a few days to get back to normal. A concussion is definitely not fun!!! I will be starting the IVF process again very soon! I will try to do better with keeping everyone updated!

I hope you all have a great day!!
