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.

Mmmmm. Cold Stone. Half cake batter, half dark chocolate mint. A great way to relax and chill.

I hope you'll stay healthy and well with your new treatments and the side effects will be minimal. I think about you a lot and I hope you'll have news to share soon.

Take care,
Carra

I am glad you had a weekend to relax. I just finished writing your and Eddie down in my prayer journal I carry with me. Please rest in that I will be praying for your guys daily. I am asking God to give you patience as you wait and to help you see and feel HIS prescence.

Jessica...I found your blog from Krysta's. I felt EXACTLY the same when I found out my brother-in-law and sister-in-law were pregnant, my husband's cousin, and now my very own cousin. It is so difficult...you ARE happy for them, but you just HATE how things are for yourself. I understand friend...but we'll get through this. My hubby and I haven't gotten to the point of wanting to adopt yet, but I have read TONS of blogs about women who have adopted babies and it is starting to draw my interest. We have gone through two IUI's and two IVF's and are hoping to try IVF again soon...when we can afford it.

Good luck and take a look at my blog too...www.bethouaknight.blogspot.com . I also created an IVF blog too www.growingourowngarden.blogspot.com . I'd like to add you as one of my IVF buddies :)

Blessings!
