Friday was my birthday..28!!! I had a great day. Brandon made me breakfast...cinnamon rolls and bacon. Then I went to school. My aide and my class had planned a surprise for me. The two prek classes came in with a cake and some flowers they had made from model magic...I love them. They also made a card. It was really cute!! They are 4 years old so they were so excited about throwing a party for me:) We also had a ice cream party for Valentine's Day...needless to say I had way to much sugar!!! Here is some pictures of what they brought me.

When I got home Brandon gave me my presents. He bought me a fertility necklace that I wanted.

That was the link for it...I changed the chain because it didn't look like the picture. I put in on a chain that held a past present future diamond pendant on it.I thought it went good with the whole fertility thing:) Then we went out to eat and came home to watch a movie. Right when we were starting a movie my sister-in-law called and said she had a flat tire and couldn't get in touch with her husband. Brandon and I went to help her. For Valentine's Day we did yard work:) Then we cooked supper together and watched Nights in Rondanthe. Today my mom cooked for my birthday: shrimp and corn soup, crab cakes, roasted asparagus, bread, apple pie and ice cream!! YUM!! I hope everyone had a great weekend!!

I sure do love my husband!!

I didn't cry all day. I had a good day at can't be sad in a pre k classroom. I rushed home because I wanted to spend time with Brandon before he left for an all weekend drill. We cuddled on the couch for an hour before he had to get ready. I got soooo sad when he was about to go. He kept hugging me and telling me he loved me and he didn't want to leave me for 2 nights. Tears were filling my eyes and I tried to hold it in until he left but a few ran down my cheek. When he pulled out the driveway I burst into tears...sobbing crying. Isn't that crazy...hormones do some funny things. I'm always sad when he leaves but I usually don't cry like that. I hate being here without him, especially in bed at night. I can't believe I was away from him for 18 months when he went to Iraq. I don't know how I did it. When he was gone, I always said when he leaves for a day or two, I will take it in stride because I've been through this but it's the opposite now I don't ever want him to be away since I got him back!! Anyway...I hope yall have a great weekend:)

Only God Knows When....

Well I started my period this morning bright and early at 5:30. I didn't even really cry. It's happen so many times that if it ever didn't happen, I would probably have a heart attack:) Brandon hugged me and said that it would be ok and we would get our baby one day. Then on the way to work he called me again just to say that he loved me. I'm so blessed to have a wonderful husband!! I couldn't ask for a better husband and best friend. He is definately my rock. I guess IVF here we come!! I called the doctor's office and they told me just to take the month off and start birth control when I start my next period. I have to take the month off because I'm too late for the february cycle. There is no march cycle because the february cycle runs into the first week of we have to wait until April to do IVF. You never know maybe it will just happen "naturally" this month!! Only God knows.....

Possible Career Change...

This week at school my class is learning all about safety: fire, bike, not to talk to strangers, etc. Their favorite part has been talking about fires, stop drop and roll, pretending they are firefighters, etc. We surprised the whole grade level yesterday by having some firemen come and talk to them. One of the firemen asked me to put on his gear. He said that it helps kids not to be scared of firemen if their house is burning down. They have had children run and hide when they are trying to rescue them because they are afraid of the suits. It was really fun putting on the gear. I never in my life thought I would do that. Maybe I should try firefighting on the side:) My students LOVED seeing me in the suit as much as I loved walking and talking to them while I was in it. I hope you enjoy the pictures. By the way that is not my classroom, it is the other pre k class. My class is jungle theme. I will have to post pics of that one day.

On the 2ww wait front...I am suppose to start tomorrow. Still praying and crossing my fingers and toes but trying not to get my hopes up. Please say a prayer for us tonight!!

11 DPO

Well people are asking me to update. I'm 11 DPO or IUI. I'm still bloated but not any other "symptoms". I'm not going to test because I've seen way to many negatives in my life!!! Friday is the day I am suppose to start my period. Hopefully I won't....say some prayers!!! Other than that I've just been trying to take it easy. I haven't been doing strenuous ex cerise....just Pilate's and walking. I haven't been having that much of an appetite. I am usually hungry every 3 hours but I haven't been eating too much...that's very unusual for me. I hope everyone had a great Tuesday.
Also, my husband has been smoke free for almost 2 weeks. It has been hard for him but he has done it!! I'm so proud of him:) I have also been coffee free for 3 days...I never thought I'd be able to do it but it hasn't been too bad.

Melody asked if I was feeling better so I guess I should post an update. I forgot one small detail when I said I threw up....I didn't want yall to think I was crazy. My stomach hurt so BADLY (it's never felt like that)...I kept waiting and waiting to throw up so I could feel some relief. After 2 hours of pain I did what I NEVER do...I made myself throw up. After 2 more hours of pain..I did it again. This happen 3 times. So I wouldn't call what I had a virus...I'm not sure what to call it. Yesterday I was fine just a little tired. I cleaned house, grocery shopped, played with my nieces, it was a great day. Last night at the SAME EXACT time I started to feel bad again. My stomach was so bloated that I couldn't get comfortable. I told myself that I was just going to have to deal with it because I couldn't make myself throw up again. This morning I felt a little nauseous but I still ate breakfast. Felt a little better but felt very week and tired. I'm doing better now. I hope it doesn't happen again tonight...unless of course this is because I'm pregnant and in that case break it on:) I hope everyone had a great weekend!!
