I saw Dr Sebastian today for my first fertility appointment. I will be starting femara on cycle day 3 of my next cycle. I am incredibly excited. This is supposed to be more effective than clomid which is good. I need to lose weight per his orders as well since that will increase my odds. I'm optimistic that Lex will be a big brother in the next year to year and a half. I hope we get lucky.

Letter to Santa

Dear Santa,

How are you doing? As you know I've done my best to be good this year so I'm hoping to ask you for a couple of things. The first being a bfp. I would really like a second child so Lex has a little sibling to love just as much as I love my brothers. Next, I would like Nate to be spoiled rotten. He has worked so hard between school and work and taking care of me and Lex he definitely deserves something wonderful. For Lex, can you bring him a couple of books and some more snow? He loves playing in the snow and I want there to be plenty for him to play in.

Thank you Santa and have a safe trip.

I ~LOVE~ my dr

Last week I had a mole on my leg removed because it had been changing and there is a history of skin cancer in my family. (I had some atypical cells in the mole, not cancer yet but headed that way.) This week when I went in to have the suture removed my doctor brought up our attempts at trying for another "beautiful" child. (She absolutely loves Lex and gushes over him everytime I see her, I'm honestly tempted to see if when I take Lex to see Santa this weekend Santa'll let me sit on his lap for a picture too to mail her in a Christmas card). Since she knows I know what I'm doing when it comes to ttcing she wanted to check on how things are going. She offered me metformin and more prometrium and I gladly took them. She also made me a referral to get assistance with fertility treatments, mainly clomid. I'm really excited about this. I've never had a dr take such an interest in me.

Sorry I haven't been blogging more lately, it's been a very busy couple of weeks at work and so my life has been very boring. There is good news from that front. The manager at the clinic I'm at insists that he will be hiring me for one of the upcoming openings. If he had his way he wouldn't be putting the job up as open but there are rules about that. It's always great to know I'm needed at that clinic.
