Nothing to write home about

I'm just hangin' out waitin' for the end of the week. 8dpo, 6 days to go.

In the meantime, I thought I'd write about my thoughts, as well as a few things I'm doing to keep myself busy and distracted.

1. Dinner tonight - we're having our poor realtor and his family for dinner. He has been working with us for over 2 years and hasn't been able to sell us a house yet. So we're having a multi-course dinner for his family - probably around 4 appetizers (scallops stuffed with basil and garlic, boiled prawns with homemade mayo, bruschetta with lardo (an Italian meat), and pickled vegetables), handmade pasta (with either leek and butter sauce, or porcini mushroom and tomato sauce), some sort of pork cooked Italian-style (by my super Italian husband), asparagus with butter and parmesan cheese, and finally dessert - hazelnut cookies with nutella and mascarpone filling and homemade vanilla ice cream. I'm expecting to feel sick from eating too much. But OMG it's going to be so yummy.

2. Banff Mountain Film Festival tomorrow night! Not sure if anyone reading this is into mountains and being outdoorsy, but I can tell ya, I'm excited!

3. Thought #1 - this month will not result in a BFP, because we have not been able to get pregnant from timed intercourse before, and the addition of one egg doesn't raise our chances by all that much.

4. Thought #2 - this month maybe has a better chance of a BFP, because we did have two eggs, and the clomid, HCG, and progesterone will hopefully solve the spotting-before-period problems which may solve the infertility problems.

5. Thought #3 - I have no idea whether either Thought #1 or Thought #2 are accurate or will even matter in the end - I think it's probably all just random luck and what happens, happens.

6. In general, I feel much less stressed this month (except for TAXES, OMG), so hopefully "just relaxing" may actually help.

7. TAXES. OMG. I haven't even STARTED yet. Freaking out to commence in 3 ... 2... 1...


  1. OK, so I'm getting on an airplane RIGHT NOW and you can pick me up and I'll be there for dinner. Sounds like a good plan, right? No freaking out!!! Enjoy your dinner tonight and your friends!

  2. I think I might have to change careers and come be your realtor: what a great dinner! I'm with you on the alternating positive/negative thought cycle. It's exhausting. But enjoy the dinner! And hopefully we'll both have good news at the end of the week. :)

  3. So how many days are you past ovulation? I hope you get a BFP! :)

  4. That's great that you don't have any symptoms from Prometrium. I've had the symptoms listed in my last post during all three IUI cycles. My period usually comes 14 - 16 days past IUI while I'm still taking Prometrium. And sadly I usually have spotting -- even with Prometrium! :( I hope you don't though!

  5. That dinner sounds wonderful. And I'm with you on the taxes. Ugh.

  6. Wow. Dinner sounds good. I make it a habit to do nice things for my realtor too. She had no problem selling me a house. That was quick. The problem now for almost a year is selling my house to someone else. Yes I picked the worst time to sell. Hope dinner goes well and that you find a house soon. Hope that the next 6 days go by peacefully too with a positive result at the end.

  7. Glad you like your socks. I can't wait for your post. When you get a chance, email me and I can answer all your questions you asked in my last post. I know I have your email, but I'm not sure exactly which one it is. I didn't put your name on it because I fail at thinking ahead ;o)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
