Today is cd 11.

We rode our horses today. It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and it was about 70 degrees.

I have had a killer headache for the past new days. I don't know if it is my hormones or the lower dosage of synthroid or the weather or what, but it will not go away.

Now without, further adu.....Here are some of the pics I have been promising! More will come soon. These were all taken on a Sunday afternoon in our backyard. Noah was helping Uncle Burt water the trees and flowers.

Burt is going to be such a good Daddy some day. I can't wait!

This one is my favorite. It is like he is saying "Ok Uncle Burt. You said pick up the hose. Now let's Go!!!!"

I can hear Noah now. When he falls down he says "Uh-Oh Fall Fall"!

Quick Post

Quick Post. I have to run. I'll give full details later. And I promise the pics will soon come. I have then downloaded I just need to open them in PhotoShop and change the resolution so they won't ake so long to upload. I am about halfway done.

Went to the Thyroid Doctor today. levels are going nuts again. Changed from .137 mg of synthroid to .125. Oh, and he is said that he will be worried about me when I do get pregnant.

BUMMER! I think I am going to scream.

I have been so super busy. Mom, Nannie, Papaw, and my nephew Noah were here last weekend. Then I spent Monday and Tuesday cleaning like a mad dog. I had to teach Wednesday and Thursday night and then my sister, bro-in-law, Eli, and Noah came to visit for the weekend. We have had a good weekend. We don't get to spend much time together, so this weekend was nice. I have tons of pictures to upload. Maybe tomorrow night after they leave. I just wanted to give you a quick update in my TTC world. Today is cd 4. AF came a day late and I so had my hopes up. I was really upset on Wednesday, but now I have newed optimism. Basically b/c even if I don't get pregnant I am one cycle closer to IUI. I have this cycle I am currently in and one more before IUI. I will start the Letrozole tomorrow. I have to go see my thyroid doctor Tuesday for a recheck from when my levels went nuts back in the Spring. Hopefully everything is ok. Since I don't have a thyroid there is no hope in this ever correcting itself. Only by medication.

I ovulated!!!!! It took an act of Congress to get my results, but it doesn't matter because now I KNOW that I ovulated. My progesterone level was 20.57. Keep your fingers crossed and keep us in your prayers!!!!

I have to go clean my house now. Mom, Noah, Nannie, and Papaw are coming to visit tomorrow for the weekend.

Well, I went for my Progesterone level yesterday. I drove to Vicksburg to my Ob/GYN clinic. It is only about an house drive. I didn't want to go to the local hospital b/c we just fired a girl at work and she is suing the agency and she now works in the hospital lab.

Anyhoo, I left the clinic at 2 pm yesterday. The nurse said she would fax over the results as soon as she got them. She should have had them yesterday afternoon but I understand the lab could have been backed up. Dr. Issacs office said they would call as soon as they received the results. At 2:30 this afternoon I called them and they had NOT received the fax. So I called my clinic back and had to leave a message for the nurse. I still have not heard from Dr. Issacs office. I will give them until lunch tomorrow and then I will call again.

Boring Week

Not much to report this week. I never got a positive on my OPK (big surprise there, I never have). According to my temperature charts I ovulated on Tuesday which would be about right since I saw the fertile CM on Monday. I will go Tuesday to get my Progesterone level done.

Burt is refereeing a high school football game tonight so he won't be home until late.

I went and bought mums and pansies to plant tomorrow when I got off work today. I got home around 5:30 and I have been grading papers ever since. It is now 9 pm.

Happy Birthday to Me!!!!!

Today is my 28th birthday!!! Friday was Burt's 29th birthday and Thursday was my niece's (Anna Kate's) 3rd birthday!!! Burt gave me a watch and a North Face jacket. I gave Burt jeans and a gun cleaning kit.

We went home this past weekend to see the family and to go to Anna Kate's birthday party. I will have to upload the pics later, as well as the pics of the new truck. I am too tired tonight. We didn't get home until 9:30 last night and had tons to do when we got home. I ran errands after work today and then we planted 2 crepe myrtles in the yard. Since then I have been cooking food for a going away party for a girl at work. One other lady and I are going to prepare all of the food. It is easier that way.

This will be a busy week for me. Tons to do. I did finally get a paycheck from the college for the classes I have been teaching so now it seems worth it.

Today is cd 16. Keep your fingers crossed!! I have had or the past couple of days egg white CM. This is a first ever for me. I have never had it before. Things are looking up for me. It may not happen this month, but at least I know the new medicine is doing something!
