Sarah and Matt came up to hang out with us on the water on Saturday.
Thank you David for trying to make my birthday extra special. And thank you to all of my friends and family that sent me birthday wishes all weekend long!
BTW: My progesterone was over 20 yesterday so that means my lining is good and I don't have to take any supplements this week.

It's impossible to think positive without getting your hopes up. And it's extremely easy when you're just trying to prepare yourself for the worst. So I'm not sure which is the better way to go. But right now, I'm doing the first one and I'm totally expecting that I'm setting myself up for a huge disappointment and I feel like this one will probably be the hardest because it will mean that we will be moving on to the next and final step as far as we can see.
Anyway, on Friday night (before all of this madness started playing out in my head) David decided to run a 5K 105 degree weather. I wasn't pumped about going and sitting out in the heat but I needed to be there in case he passed out from heat stroke! He did pretty good for not doing anything like that in a while. There were 35 people in his age group and he finished 13 out of those 35.

I'm frustrated and I'm just ready to get all of this over with and find out if we need to move on with IVF or not. I just ready to be done with the Fertility Clinic and the people there. I always leave there more upset than when I went in and I don't feel any sensitivity from the people there. They see people in my situation every day and they must all just be numb to the fact that this is the most important thing in some people's lives. I'm ready to move on.
On a happier note, I wanted to share some pictures I took at Jaxon's birthday party this past weekend...

Then I had to leave the lake to head to Sarah's house to take pictures for her son Jaxon's 2nd birthday. They had tons of family there and I just went around trying to get pictures of everything. Jaxon looked like he had the best time at his party and his mommy Sarah did such a good job. I'll post some pictures from the party after I get them edited and to Sarah.
But for now, I'll post the invitation Sarah made using my pictures from the splash pad photo session of Jaxon.
I'm so happy that everyone loved the pictures so much.
In fertility news...today was my last day of taking the oral medication Femara and I'm really happy about that because I've had non-stop headaches the whole week on it. It starts about an hour after I take the medicine and it lasts all the way until I go to sleep. It's miserable!!! Tomorrow I start the injectable Follistim. I'm really comfortable with the shots and I'm ready because that means that I'm getting closer to my appointment on Thursday to find out how my follicles are doing!

Well, I tried my hardest, but it's difficult when his birthday was on a Wednesday night and the poor guy is exhausted from work all the time. So we kept it low key and I think he enjoyed it. When he got home from work, he opened his gifts...a brand new gas grill and all the accessories to go along with it. I think he was really surprised because he never would have guessed I would have gotten him a grill. I'm so excited for him to put it together and fire it up! Maybe we'll grill something out this weekend...
After gifts, we went out to eat at Ruby Tuesday. We love the salad there and we haven't been there in a while and that's the place he wanted to go. Then it was home to watch Big Brother and then bedtime.
He wouldn't let me take a birthday pic, so to punish him...I'm going to post this one until he lets me take one...
David, I hope you had a very special birthday because you are really special to me. I love you so much! Muah!
