Well, needless to say, we did not get pregnant this time either. This will be my third round of Clomid since we started trying again. Hubs decided to share with our friends that we are trying again. I had hoped we could just keep it between us for now. Oh well. Last weekend we went to Gatlinburg. We ate at the Melting Pot, lazed around the hotel, and walked the strip. We had planned on doing a little hiking in the Smokies, but neither of us felt up to it. At least we looked cute in our hiking boots. The food at the Melting Pot was so good! The service, not so much. We had a reservation, but we still waited twenty minutes to be seated. When we were finally seated it took another fifteen minutes before we got drinks. I know our waitress was busy because she had a large group. Still, what is the point in even making a reservation? It took too long in between courses. I am so picky about customer service.
I am kind of down today because I was putting everything I had into that last cycle. I just knew it would work, and when it didn’t I got really upset. Then my period has been really bad. And hubs and I were both on edge because we knew he would be leaving for Japan this week. I never quite relax when he is out of town. Especially when he is across the world from me. I know this will be a great experience for him, even though he is there for business and not pleasure. I miss him like crazy already. We are staying in touch through Skype, but we haven’t quite figured out a schedule where one of us isn’t staying up way late or getting up at the crack of dawn. I think it will work out when he gets up for the day, because it will still be early evening for me.
Today is cycle day 6, and third time is a charm right? I am so hoping for a baby this year, and we are quickly approaching our last chance for a 2013 baby. My progesterone was perfect on my last mid-cycle draw. With any luck, my body will keep it up. Every time I look at the clock and the numbers are all the same digit, I make a wish. It’s always the same wish. This has been happening at least once a day for a while. Has to mean something. I am hoping it means we will get our miracle.
We finalized our plans for our renewal ceremony. I ordered my invites, and will send them out this week. We are borrowing folding tables and chairs from work. I am in the process of looking for pink and black table cloths that look vintage and a little fiesta-ish. We are still planning to have Moe’s catered in. I am ordering the sky lanterns soon, and I am making a list of love songs to play from my iPod. I have an appointment to pick out flowers next month. I have been getting lots of inspiration from Pinterest. I hope it all comes together. In the end though, the only thing that matters to me is having everyone I love surrounding us.
At least I have plenty to do to stay busy until hubs gets back. Then I have buying the new car to look forward to. I also started gathering information about adoption and becoming foster parents. Our first step is taking the PATH classes and do the home study. We will get into all of that when he gets back. I am just going to sit back and do some more wishing, hoping, and planning. ❤
