Fabulous in First: Happy Birthday To You and Sale!

Came across this and love it! Can't wait to do with my first graders. Might even get my hubby to make us a Dr. Seuss cake!

Month 13

I called my doctor today and had them call in the Clomid prescription. I know the drill. I pray month 13 is our lucky month. Going into TTC, I always thought getting pregnant would be the easiest thing on Earth, clearly I had no clue. We've been trying for over a year, I just thought we'd be parents by now.
 It's been 10 months of BBT, about six months of Clomid, ten months of AF showing up. Then there were those two glorious months when we were pregnant. 8 glorious, wonderful, blissful weeks when I had a little life growing inside. Loosing our baby was the hardest thing I've ever had to endure, I wouldn't wish that on anyone. But it made us stronger, it unified us even more.
I'm not angry or discouraged, it just really sucks when you want something so bad. I believe it will happen for us again. We'll get our little bean. In the meantime, we wait, pray and hope.

So I woke up to major cramps and AF this morning. To quote that 80's song, "another MONTH bites the dust". I'll be calling my doctor and getting back on the Clomid starting day 5-9. I'm sad, we're both sad, but it'll be okay. After our miscarraige, this is just another stepping stone. God willing, we'll be parents soon. In the meantime, I'm enjoying some Pinot Grigo this weekend.

Today was a busy, long, fun day. It was a day filled of hanging with my hubby, shoe shopping, lunch and dinner with good friends and the movies. Now I'm exhausted! Even as I sit here and type this my eyes are closing. How is it I'm so sleepy when I took a two hour nap yesterday, fell back asleep at 10 and woke up at 7:30 feeling well rested?! maybe I should take this sleepiness as a good sign of be pregnant. My period is due to start Feb. 11th, needless to say I'm becoming a bit too focused on that date. Not in a bad way, just anxious. I could POAS, but I refuse too. Not before the 11th, anyway. I tested early last March got a BFP followed by my period two days later and then the miscarriage in November...I just can't handle the idea of testing early, getting a positive only be let down later. I'll sit, pray and wait.

Anyway, for tonight I bid you goodnight.

Turning 31

I recently turned 31 years old. I rather enjoyed it. My students and their parents surprised me with flowers and cupcakes, I got serenaded by pre-k, kinder, first, second and third grades while at lunch. My wonderful husband took me out to dinner and got me the DMB CD I wanted, and we celebrated with friends that Saturday. We hand games night at Casa de Zemog, where earlier in the day my husband decorated my birthday cake in the shape of the Quidditch field from Harry Potter. It was a great time. I wouldn't trade being 30-something for being 20-anything!

I hope 31 brings me many blessings!


School let out early and was cancel today due to "winter weather". Due to this "winter weather", my husband and I have spent a day doing something we never get to do; nothing. We woke up at 6:30 this morning in search of snow, sad to repot we were let down :( so we continued our day by finishing bones season 4, starting season 5, and have now moved on to movies. Do we feel guilty? Nope. We're enjoying our "snow day". Thanks meterologoist in the Houston area, thank you icy streets, artric blast and the creators of Netflix! We have really enjoyed doing nothing!
