Darn you AF!

Just got off the phone with the RE's nurse and the appointment is a no go for today.  They need to have the saline sonogram done first before the RE can give me a plan on how to proceed, which in turn will tell me costs.  On the bright side I was able to schedule the sonogram for next Wed.  On the not so bright side the first available appointment with the RE is two weeks later.  Darn you AF for messing up my schedule! 

Welcome to the TTC roller coaster ride.

I have been quiet as of late

I have been quiet as of late.  No particular reason other than I haven’t had much to share.  I have been waiting and waiting for AF to show up.  45 days thus far to be exact.  I started spotting yesterday so she should show up tomorrow, which means the saline sonogram won’t happen for another week.   
I have my follow up appointment tomorrow with the RE.  The timing didn’t quite work out the way I wanted it to, but to reschedule means I wouldn’t see her for another month.  Either way, at my appointment I will learn if my test came back positive, though I think they did based on what I have researched.  I also will find out what route she wants to take – medicated, not medicated.  I have irregular periods in case you haven’t gathered and I’m interested in hearing how she is going to handle it.  What I fear is that it will cost me an arm and a leg on top of the costs for the IUI.  I am trying hard to not put the cart before the horse, but I’m getting really worried about the cost and how many times I can afford.  I will know soon enough I guess.

The Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you kindly to The Baby Chase Project for awarding me for The Versatile Blogger.  I'm excited to win my first award here in the blogsphere!

Here are the rules to those I pass on the Versatile Blogger Award:

• Thank and link back to the person nice enough to give you the award
• Share seven things about yourself
• Pass the award along to seven other bloggers who you think are fabulous
• Contact the bloggers you chose and let them know about the award

Seven things about me:
1. My Myers Briggs personality type is ESTJ though I think I'm a closet I (introvert). 

2. I can't balance my checkbook to save my life.  I keep track of my expenses and even have a monthly budget but I can't seem to balance it.

3.  I like Mexican, Italian and some seafood and that's about it.  Ok, that's not true.  I love sweets but is that really a cuisine?

4. I like bright and bold colors.  You only need to visit my house to see that it is true.

5. I like kittens, but I don't like cats.  Of course, I'm also highly allergic to cats so that helps explain why I don't like them too much.  And yes, before you ask, I am allergic to kittens too, but kittens are cute.

6. I love dogs.  At one time I use to foster dogs, but had to give it up when it caused too much fighting between my own dogs.  Dogs give unconditional love and can make any day brighter how could I not love them? 

7. I just got my first blackberry a month ago and I love it.  I'm not addicted to it, but I certainly like having it.  A lot.

Enough about me.  My next task is to pass the award along to 7 other bloggers.  I'm pretty sure that some of you have already been given this award so I apologize for the duplication.  For those of you who have not been awarded  congrats and pass this award along!  And the award goes to:

Waiting for Mommyhood
Baby thoughts while reality bites
Ticking Clock
