Dr Fufu appointment

I had a mid-cycle scan today.  My regular Fufu doc was not in so I had an ultrasound lady.  Not good news for us.  I don't appear to have any folicles to size this month.  It could be because the days for taking the tablets changed from 3 to 7, to 2 to 6.  I forgot to mention that to replacement lady.  Not that anything can be done.  So no pressure this month, which of course won't stop me from hoping, but that's how it goes.

I have had a bit of a nasty cold.  Ended up taking half the day off of work yesterday, and fortunately I had today off, so I should be good to go again tomorrow - yes I get to work Easter Friday AND Easter Monday.  I have to tell myself - time and a half AND a day in lieu.  And if I can save enough money, I shall be a housewife in 6 months time, and I can definitely deal with that.  Each time TJL says 'when are you going to do such and such?'  I say 'In six months time' ... lol

Some people have said that they could not be a housewife, they'd get bored!  Not me!  I am so glad I have my photography, that I can develop further.  Plus I will be helping TJL out on the farm, getting some more experience under my belt before we finally manage to purchase our own farm.

We almost have all the adoption paperwork done.  Will get it sent off straight after Easter.  Nervous as heck, into the wide unknown!  Plus we have to have our medicals.  Very exciting though!  Me more than TJL, but that's probably a good thing, although I wish I didn't have to push him quite so hard.

Basketball tomorrow night - Taranaki Mountainairs v Bay Hawks.  So excited!  I love basketball, plus I do the 'media' for Taranaki, which just involves the facebook page at the moment.  Managed to find the team a song today, I hope the rest of the committee like it.

And off to Waverley on Sunday, to photograph a Pony Club end of season cup day.  Wooop!

Almost 2 months between posts

I can't believe I haven't posted in so long.  Guess I needed to take a break.  So whats the happenings?  Still not pregnant.  Pretty much expected I guess, after how long of trying ... I can't even remember, 2 and a bit years I think.  Last cycle I had 3 folicles to size, but all on the right.  Dr Fufu would prefer to see them in both uteri.  Will get scanned on Thursday to see how we are doing this month.  I'm actually kind of over the whole thing, just being in limbo sucks for me.  I like to 'plan' but its really hard when you keep thinking, it'd be cool to do this, but maybe I will be pregnant then' ... I know we should just do it anyway, but, bah, I am kinda tired of being childless.

We have been to a 2 hour adoption/fostering seminar.  Didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know, I have researched the topic to death!  Lol.  We need to get onto our paperwork, and have our medicals done so we can begin the next step of 2 full day seminars.  TJL is not so keen on these, not exactly a 'sit down and learn stuff' kinda guy, but he will get through it.  I do have to stop speaking for him though!  The man is not an idiot!

We had TJL's nieces 5th birthday a week ago.  It was okay.  Too many children and too much noise.  If one or more of the children were mine it wouldn't have been a problem, but I just wasn't in the mood to be very social ... I hate being the only one without kids (thats in my family, not my entire life ... lol).

Also spent a couple of days back home, watched a bit of basketball with a couple of friends, and hung out with my sisters kids.  Nearly broke my neck trying to rolypoly off of the footstool in a competition with my 7 year old niece (she does a bridge and flicks her legs over backwards, working towards being able to do it off the floor so she can go up a grade in gymnastics).  Me, as I said, could barely rolypoly off the dang thing.  When was it I got old?  But this is why the kids love me, I'm not afraid to look like an incompetent idiot in front of them.

And back to work tomorrow.  But thats only for 6 months, as if I can save 10k TJL said I can quit and be a 'farmers wife' .... YES!  Wish me luck!
