P.I.O…

After a couple of months of hitting this full on, I'm getting the hang of using these acronyms.  Some may say that I even sound like I know what I'm talking about....They are mistaken, but at least it looks that way on occasion. PIO's are the new fun to help fill the time during the …

Game Day!!!

The last that we were told was that we would get the appointment time for the baby making the day before.  The call came as we were driving.  I have to say that all the nurses at the clinic are just awesome, but the one that called is usually the one I laughed the most …

Force Fields

Follow up day and we could feel it.  We dropped the little one off with Grandma and were on our way.  The drive to the clinic was a fairly quiet one, as both of us were rather anxious about the news we were driving toward.  Is my force field finally in check?  If not, will …

How to Kill Time

The worst part about this whole thing is the waiting.  All the while we are supposed to be "regulating stress levels" which is so easy in this world of unknown.  Luckily I am well trained in the hurry up and wait world.  I did after all survive the military, and currently work for the government, …

Part Deux…

Okey dokey.  After a nice few weeks at home and being able to live in our normal routine again, we were ready to knock out part two.  Day one came and I made the much anticipated call to the clinic.  It was on a weekend, so I got to leave a voicemail. "Hey, just calling …

Let’s Do this

It's about bloody time!!!  No pun intended of course...Day 1 finally decided to show up, which means the next stage can start.  21 days to go, then I have to wait for another period (FML).  But once that stubborn SOB shows up, things really get interesting.  I start taking lovely hormones again and will have …

That Kid!

Recently we have been staying at my parents' place.  Our room and our daughter's room are next to each other on one side of the house, and the TV room is on the other side of the house and two floors down (basement).  In order to not keep the little one up past bed time, …

Gearing Down

Day 5 post retrieval came and I got another call from the egg dude.  We had 13 that were ready to put into the game,5 more that were still warming up and one more said "Peace!" and dropped the mic before walking out.  13 was already a good number, but back up is never a …

Eggs are a cooking!

Got the call from the egg dude today.  I'm pretty certain they have a fancier title than that, but I have not clue what it is.  Anyway, he let me know that all 19 fertilized eggs are holding strong and made it to Day 3.  16 of them are just solid and taking on the …
