Family Picture


I finally got the family picture from my SIL Jessica. It’s not the best picture of all of us but it works. We survived our first round of Clomid. The only side effect I had was a little hot flash now and then. So it wasn’t too bad at all. The other problem that I’ve had is I’ve gained a few pounds. Well let’s say 8 pounds in the past 2 months. I didn’t go last month to weight watchers because I knew I would have to pay. This Thursday I’m going back for my weigh and I’m going to deal with it. I’m blaming it on all the medicine that I’ve been taking. If you are a life time member at WW you don’t have to pay as long as you stay within 2 pounds of your goal weight. But you know I’m ready to be pregnant and gain 20 pounds. I’m praying daily for our little miracle. God listens to my prayers and if this is His plan it will happen.
Hope everyone has a great week.

Taking Time To Relax---

This is something we should all do. But, who does it!?! This past weekend we decided that was just what we were going to do. We stay on the go 90% of the time. Friday night we watched a movie at home. Saturday morning we slept till 9:00. That was a great feeling-For somereason I normally can't sleep past 7am. That night we went to diner at Macaroni Grill. It’s our favorite place to eat out. I normally try to eat a little healthy but this past weekend I decided I was eating just what I wanted and did not think twice about it. It was good and worth all of the calories. I was already bloated and felt pretty miserable from taking Prometrium. Its crazy how taking some medicines can make you just feel huge. Today I started on the Clomid. I’ve not taken this in a few years so I honestly can’t remember all/any of the side effects. I’m hoping that it won’t be too bad. The only thing I do remember is being hot-so I think I can deal with that. Oh, I forgot to mention while I was in the mood to eat just what I wanted-for desert we stopped at Cold Stone Creamery. I will say I did feel pretty miserable that night.

Nothing is happening with the adoption. We are still waiting until September 1st to get an official announcement. But there have been a few good things to happen for 2 families that I know of. Lauren and Jim are in Vietnam right now with their Son River. Also Gina and her family are close to bringing home their Sons.

Hope everyone is having a great week. Here is a picture of Eddie and I taken at my cousin Cara’s wedding.
