Vote early and often!

in IVF #2 (second try)

I should really be going to bed now, as it is almost midnight and I need to be getting as much sleep as I can right now… But I had a few things I need to get done on the computer tonight, after part one of the season finale of So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) was over and decided I would check in quickly tonight before I retired to for the evening! 😉 For the record, I voted way too many times to count for my favorite dancer SABRA!!! 🙂 I didn’t want to take any chance this time, that my usual attempts at voting (the number of times which I could count on one or two hands for my favorite dancers) could keep her from winning… While I was reading Sean’s bedtime story I even had Bob hitting redial for me! 😉

I really like Neil, Danny and even Lacey (in that order), but taking into account the whole season, not just tonight’s performances, though they were awesome, Sabra still stands out to me as the best all around dancer in the competition! Though in the past I have always voted for more than one dancer, tonight I focused all of my dialing energy on just Sabra! I think Neil had the best solo tonight and is the best performer. I think Danny has the best technique and that Lacey, as one of the judges said tonight, is consistently very good. Anyway, if you didn’t know better you might think you were reading a blog about TV shows, specifically a reality dance competition, as opposed to Bob and my quest to expand our family! 😉 If only being able to achieve and sustain a pregnancy were as easy as getting all of your family and friends to call in as many times as they could, over a few hour period, and then the couple that got the most votes were allowed to conceive that cycle… Surely by now Bob and I could have recruited enough people to dial their hearts out for us! 🙂

So getting back to that little old topic… Today (well at least for the next 15 minutes or so), I am 8dp5dt (13dpo). Only 1 1/2 days until we get the news as to whether I have a sticky bean inside me right now!!! 🙂 Today was a somewhat busy one and I also really just don’t have that much to say about this cycle right now, as I really have absolutely no idea if it worked this time around and nothing to base predictions on. I do know I had an embryo inside of me as of a week from yesterday, but whether or not it implanted is yet to be seen… I am encouraged that it was of higher quality than our 1st IVF cycle (2bb vs. 3bb), but I realize higher quality may increase our chances, but is no guarantee. If I am sounding pessimistic, I think it is because after three plus years trying to conceive #2 (TTC#2) and being on round #3 of assisted medical technology, one starts to wonder if it will ever happen and one doesn’t want to get ones hopes up too much, only to be let down.

I was talking with one of my girlfriends earlier today about how growing up I never was close to anyone who had a birthday in the month of April and thus I have always had a feeling that I might have a baby someday in April and then it would become an important month in my life… (if we are pregnant now, our baby will be due in April 2008). Well, she pointed out that we have actually had this conversation a few times before, four to be exact! That is because this will be the 4th time, since Bob and I started TTC#2 in July of 2004, that we will have had the opportunity to have a baby be due in April! Pretty crazy, eh?! That said, despite my apparent cynicism, I WOULD SOOOOO LOVE TO FIND OUT ON FRIDAY THAT WE ARE EXPECTING!!! And I have not given up hope that we could be and if we aren’t that we still can be in the future!

A quick update on one of my prayer requests… My friend who has been dealing with pre-term labor is hanging in there on strict bed rest, with no major changes to her status one way or another. She has an appointment with her OB/GYN tomorrow, but since basically every time she stands for more than a few minutes (to go to the bathroom or something like that), her contractions kick in, she is guessing she will be remaining on bed rest for sometime. Please keep her, her baby and her family in your prayers. Thank you!

Okay, it is way past my bedtime, so I should really go to there, to bed that is, which Bob did over an hour ago, which is rare. We usually make a point to go to bed at the same time, even if we don’t go to sleep at the same time. We have just always been that way, but when he was heading upstairs, I told him I still had some things to do, but to go ahead, as I know he needs to get up early tomorrow for work. I know I am totally rambling/typing stream of consciousness (to show you how tired I am, the first time I proof read this it said “steam or consciousness”) and sharing TMI, so I will wrap it up.

Thank you for your support, thoughts and prayers! 🙂 It won’t be long now… Though sometimes the time between now and Friday afternoon seems like an eternity! The phrase TGIF is going to take on a whole new meaning this week for me! 😉 Good night and sweet dreams!
