I have the toots

Warning... possible TMI alert....

...if you don't like the word "fart" you probably should skip this one...


So I was a little gassy yesterday, nothing really noticeable. Then last night I had a feeling like I had to fart real bad but couldn't. My belly was distended and painful. I spent the entire night telling hubby, "I wish I could just let out a big fart!". He thought this was hilarious. I tried "sitting on the pot", as my family calls it, squatting, bending over, nothing helped. When I woke up this morning it was the same way until I finally got a little relief here at work.. hehe. I'm still pretty gassy and bloated but it isn't as painful as before. I do feel bad for the people that sit around me though. I think that all the gas is from the Prometrium. I was reading online today that progesterone can cause a lot of bloating and gas.

Anyone else had this side effect?

Clarification

Ok maybe I should clarify....

AF isn't here yet. I just have cramps. Sorry about the miscommunication...

I am 11dpIUI (days past IUI) today. Yesterday I woke up and my boobs and nipple were enormous and hurt like all get out. Last night I was so tired I fell asleep somewhere around 8:30. Of course I thought I was pregnant! I mean really, why wouldn't I think that? It doesn't matter that those are all symptoms of AF, cause I was sure I was pregnant.

Then today at lunch I was sitting foward, leaning over the table and the cramps started. I felt like a brick had hit me in the chest. I froze, panicked and ran to bathroom where I sat and cried. I just don't understand why this isn't happening for me. Why can't I just get pregnant? It's getting to the point where the hurt is starting to feel like I just can't take it anymore.

Oh and FYI, hubby and I DO NOT have a $1,000 lying around to do another IUI with next month. I don't know what we will do.

Blankness

I can't really think of anything to write so I will leave you with a picture. I totally forgot about this film, it's from about a year ago when we took a trip with my family to the beach. It's of my hubby.


He would probably kill me if he knew I was posting this on the Internet... he he

Faced my fear!

Scariest part is complete! I just got finished giving myself the Novarel shot. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (of course). After I said a prayer, I numbed my stomach with ice and just went for it. All I can say is that it's a good thing I have all the extra belly fat to squeeze. :)

On another note, I'm thinking that maybe a girl that is on artificial hormones who is about to give herself a shot that scares the crap out of her shouldn't watch shows like Grey's Anatomy or Private Practice. They tend to be tear jerkers.

Stay tuned: IUI to come!

Jade

I am going to copy two of my blogging buddies and post about my baby! She is 2 years old and spoiled rotten. She sleeps in the bed with hubby and I and goes with us where ever she can. But hey, she keeps me sane so it is totally worth it.


I think she is about a year old here

This is the robe her daddy insisted on buying her. She NEVER wears it.

Her and I snuggling...

Silly puppy-ness

Her and her daddy sleeping

Her favorite activity- playing ball! If she had her way she would do this 24/7

Pity Party

I went to the RE again this morning. The nurse said that I am ready to get started! I have one large follie on each side, a mid-sized one on the left, and several smaller ones on each side. My lining was "perfect" at an 8. I am supposed to take the trigger at 9:30 pm tomorrow and the IUI is scheduled for Saturday morning.

Now, confession time. I lied to my boss and told her that I didn't realize that the appt was going to take all day so I wouldn't be able to come in. I just needed a mental health day, bad. I HATE that this is what this has come down to. I hate what these hormones do to my mental state. I hate that I can't let myself get excited or feel positive because I am so scared of getting hurt.

That is why it is 4:02 pm and I am still in my pajamas. Lovely.

Follicle Check

A short update:

I just got back from the RE this morning. The nurse did an ultrasound to check my follicles. She said that I am not quite there yet. I have 3 that are good sized but aren't quite mature enough yet. (I didn't ask for measurements.) I go back Wednesday to check again. It's gonna be a long 2 days!

My couch is smiling at me....

My husband broke my couch last night. IN HALF. (ok maybe not in half, in half)

See, we were having an X-Men marathon. We both love the movies and had a rare night of being off together. He got up to get a drink and I guess he thought I looked too comfortable because he came running. He ran and jumped onto me. My hubby is not a small man, at all. He weighs over 200 lbs. There was a huge cracking noise and a drop. The support on the bottom in the middle is broken in half. The middle cushion touches the floor.

Now it wasn't a nice couch. We got it as a hand-me-down from my mom when we got married and had planned on buying a new one in the future. It just would have been nice to be able to wait until this summer considering how much money we owe the IRS.

It's a good thing a have a sense of humor, cause my couch is smiling at me!

Sibling fun


I am ashamed to admit that one of my favorite words is "turd". I call everyone turd. It drives my mother insane. The other night I was texting my brother and I called him a turd. It then turned into an all-out "make up a word" war. Here's how it went...

Me:
Turdy-turd
Him: Mc-Turd-stein
Me: Turd-alicious
Him: Re-turd-ation
Me: Turd-erific
Him: Turd-tastic
Me: Turd-ishness
Him: Turd-ucken
Me: Turdy-fruity
Him: Turd-olonni
Me: Turd-eronni
Him: Turd-iculous
Me: Turd-le
Him: Nice.
(five minutes pass)
Me: Give up?
Him: yah :(
Me: Ha! See you turd-sday! HAHAHAHA!

Every time I read this I laugh hysterically. Guess that says something about my maturity level, huh?
