To do List-Part II

Ok, so I finished my previous to do list. The next one was a little more difficult. At the top of that list was Learn to give self injections...YIKES! The injections have been a bit of a sore subject for me, excuse the pun. Although I have tried, for some reason my hands don't listen to my brain when it comes to causing bodily harm to my self. (I guess that is a good thing?) I was determined to get this checked off my list before I went to LA so the night before I left I went to work. I tried standing, lying down, and sitting. It turns out there is no "good" position to inject yourself in the rump. I had to have a pep talk inside my head. I felt like a football coach..."You can do this...Don't be a baby...etc..." Finally my strong will paid off. I was able to coach my hands to do what my brain didn't want them to do. If I can do that, I can do anything! Right?
So I kissed my sweet boys and my hunny goodbye and went out into the big world. My hubby told me to go ahead and get prego with another man's baby and to have some fun too...What a comedian.
So the list goes on...
9am Have a delicious breakfast-Check
10:30 am Embryo Transfer-Check
Now comes the fun part...bed rest. I can still remember the days telling my parents, "I'm bored." "I'm not tired." "There's nothing to do." etc... Look how far I've come. I have nowhere to be, nothing to do, and I have to stay in bed. I love it!
D (intended parent) has brought me lunch, cupcakes not once, but twice today, along with 3 pints of REAL ice cream (no low fat about this stuff). So sweet! (excuse the pun) I guess if I have trouble sleeping, I could just lay there in a self induced sugar coma. This is the life, eh?
Now we keep our fingers crossed for the next 10 days until we get our positive pregnancy test...

To Do Lists

I am preparing to go to LA for our second embryo transfer in the next few days. This time around my hubby won't be joining me with duty calls for work. :( So anyway, I have been going along and busily making my to do list and checking it twice, (for those who don't know, I love lists). I've been packing, doing laundry, cleaning, painting my toes, etc... (you see why I need the list) for the big day (part II) when I had the thought, "I don't think I have ever traveled with out my hubby!" I know it's not that big of a deal for all those seasoned travelers, but I have to admit I'm feelin' a bit nervous. I'm such a home-body!
So I decided to make a mental list of reasons my hubby should come with me. I spoke to him last night and he just gave me a big hug and said "I think this will be really good for you." He reminded me of all the day to day "stuff" that goes along with being a stay at home Mom. The cooking, cleaning, fighting kids, whining kids etc...He didn't get very far in his list of reasons I will love some time alone when I had an epiphany...It's going to be great! Yes it will be different and I will miss him and my boys...but I am really excited to go. I get to have adult conversation, spend time with my IP's, not to mention some R &R. When was the last time some one said you have to stay in bed for a few days? I am really feeling good about this. I guess I can cross "convince Jeremy to blow off work and go with me" off my list...Wish me luck!!!

Happy "Surro-Mamma's" Day!

Just had to give a quick shout out to all my Surro-Mammas out there. As if being a Mom isn't enough, a select few Moms have decided to help complete other families. It is truly a labor of love. Enjoy your day Surro-Mammas, you deserve it! I can't wait to join the club...my transfer date is quickly approaching.
