Long weekends are the best...

T and I just got back from a lovely long weekend (its a holiday in BC...actually "BC Day" today) camping on our property in Washington State. Honestly, I think I only made it through last week knowing that we had the weekend to relax, surf and not think about babies (although really, who am I kidding, that's all I think about!). Saturday was the nicest day we've ever had down there. I spent most of the day in my bikini sun-tanning and reading while T surfed. He took me out for a bit and I caught 4 good waves which is HUGE for me...I'm not the most coordinated person in the world! Unfortunately Sunday and today, the weather was cool and misty but still nice to be away and relaxing together.

Wednesday is our big appointment with Dr. N. I'm kinda worried he is going to want us to do more IUI's, since we are "unexplained" at this point but I don't know, I'm ready for some higher success rates and even though it means so much more $$$, I'm done with waiting. It's been 2.5 years of waiting, thank you very much! Oh well, we'll see what he says. I'd be OK with maybe one IUI with injectables but the risk of multiples scares me so much that I don't know if I could go through with it.

I have yet to talk to my friend, M, who announced her pregnancy to me last weekend. I'm guessing that I need to be the one to make the first contact considering she is probably terrified to reach out to me after my "not so successfully hidden" reaction to her news. Also, with my job, I know a cruelly huge amount of stuff about pregnancy/birth/babies for an infertile, and I want to make sure she is getting the care she needs. Maybe I'll send her an email this week. We live almost an hour apart so its not like I see her that often but I don't want to destroy a 17 year friendship over this. Sigh....maybe I'll get pregnant this month and we'll have babies together....yeah right...


  1. I grew up in Washington state and we used to vacation in BC,ha! Good luck at your appointment and don't be afraid to get what you want from your RE, you and your doc are a team.

    1. Really? Where in Washington? Our property is in Westport.

    2. Originally a town called stevenson on the colombia river and then Tacoma/Seattle area.

  2. OHH a weekend away and a surfing sounds so amazing! Hoping you are having fun despite the weather.
    And hopefully Dr.N will guide you in the right direction for treatment! I'm sure he'll understand why you DONT want to do another IUI - LETS GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD!!!
