We got through the weekend....

We both worked Saturday and yesterday we were very productive. K is working on the basement putting in can lights and running more electrical down there. Our basement isn't technically a finished basement but when we're done it will look so good you will think it is. :)

The basement is the first thing that has to get finished so we can get the rest of the house ready for a baby's room. Yes, I said baby's room. K and I feel like the best thing to do is move forward with the plans for the house and preparing for getting pregnant again.

K goes in for bloodwork tomorrow and she'll talk to the RE's office about what the next step will be in this journey. I don't know if we'll get the green light to start again right away or if we'll be told to take off a month to rest.

We leave for Arizona in 9 days. That will be so nice. We'll spend a couple days in Scottsdale relaxing in a nice hotel with room service and then spend a week at K's Mom's house. It is probably the most relaxing place I have ever been. The house is up in the mountains with a wonderful view and it is just so peaceful. K's Mom is a great cook who insists on taking care of us. It is wonderful. Nothing to do except read a book, hike in the mountains and just relax.


  1. Its amazing how doing house stuff that you put off forever can make you feel ok... it sounds exciting as does your trip away!!
    Hugs to you both

  2. I'm so glad that you both are pushing through and looking to the future. Isn't it funny that when you own a house, the "to do" list never ends and can always distract you from whatever heartache you may be experiencing? Ahhh..Scottsdale. I'm positively green with envy. I was there a few years ago and even traveled to Sedona for a day. That is sure to be a fabulous trip. I hope you two enjoy yourselves immensely. You absolutely deserve it.

  3. sounds like you are both in a healthy mind frame. the week in arizona sounds great! let someone take care of you for a deserve it!

  4. I am glad you are going on vaca, you deserve it. And what a great attitude about getting your house ready for a baby!!! If you try again and need that Menopur let me know. I would ask your doc for the real expiration date. if it says 2/24, could it still work for antoher 1-2 months after? Either way it's yours if you want it. :)

  5. Small steps. I am so pleased to hear that you guys are going to try again. And that you seem to be healing a bit. I hope the vaca helps.
