Pardon me whilst I recover from af's butt kicking!

I have a million things I want to tell you all about. There is so much going on right now in so many directions of my life and I can't seem to pull myself into one spot long enough to make a coherent decision on any of them!

I did manage to finally get a wonderful nurse at the ob's office to call me today and she took time to help me feel a little less overwhelmed. I was afraid that my minimal flow would mean this isn't really af and I would mess this all up. Well, I'm safe. Flow is normal and doc said it didn't matter b/c the Pro.vera incident last month would probably mean a light af this month anyway. Whew. I messed up where I wanted the rx to go too. I normally go to a mom and pop's pharmacy for all my meds but insurance won't cover this one I'm afraid and I really didn't want anyone there knowing what I was taking b/c my parents are good friends with everyone there. Thankfully that nurse was so cool and she called them claiming she had made a mistake and then called "World of the $4 (and $9) meds" and sent my rx there! How cool is that?!?!

Yes, you caught that if you were quick. We aren't telling anyone about our journey anymore (well aside from all my wonderful internet sisters). I used to go to my mom to vent and get her advice, but hubby and I agreed that her negativity was really bringing me down. We decided that once we got my cycles in working order and started again we would keep it quiet from everyone.

I'm thought I would be excited about starting Clomid but I'm really just in more of a calendar mode with it. I want to sit and figure out the days and how it will all work out. I'm anxious about the side effects and truly scared of disappointment.

I don't have much time today for a post. We are going out to eat with Dot and Dan and the baby. It should be fun. I asked hubby if they could come along because I'm tired of being stuck in the house. It will be nice to hang out for a while with other people.

I think when I get home I'm going to take a nap though! Af has really kicked me in the tush and I am just dragging around the past couple of days. I promise a more thoughtful and meaningful post tomorrow. Till then...

Thanks for stopping by! I understand about not telling anyone. I'm keeping my stuff pretty secret as well in terms of anything we will pursue with the RE. Good luck! I'm going to add you to my list of blogs to keep up with! :)

That is too bad that your mom is negative...Sounds like your DH is very supportive though - and good at getting you through the tough times.

I'll stop by again - sounds like we have alot in common!
