Five day weekend! Does it get any better???

I have been MIA over the last week or so. Since my cycle got canceled I have been in a bit of a funk. Combine that with the long holiday weekend (which I worked everyday of…gross) and I just haven’t been quite myself. Anyway, I now have a five day weekend off of work for which I am super excited about! I am participating in a Walkathon on Saturday for the local NAMI affiliate that my mom works for. (You can check out their website at I am taking my two nieces with me in the double stroller. A couple nurses from the psych floor I work on at the hospital are walking with me and I can’t wait to show off my adorable little babies!

I had been told that I wouldn’t be able to get into the Nursing program until the fall of 2009, however the other day I found out that I am number 2 on the space available list for this fall 2008. So while there are no guarantees, it is possible that I will get into the program this fall. This presents a debate in my head. Since nothing in my immediate future is a sure thing, I am going ahead with everything. I am still going to complete this next IVF cycle, because as I know far too well, who knows if I will even get through the damn cycle this time, let alone the unknown of if I will get pregnant or not. Yet at the same time I feel like I need to go ahead with the possibility of getting into the nursing program. Yuck right now I feel like my life is a big unknown. I don’t do very well with unknowns. I like to have things planned out and know ahead of time what is going to happen. Too bad life doesn’t work like that, right??

On the IVF front, I am waiting for my period. Today was my last day of provera so now I am just waiting. Fabulous. More waiting. The birth control sitting on my desk is taunting me, I swear it is. Hopefully my period will start soon and I will be able to start BCP soon.



  1. I know how you feel about needing plans and everything set out. When everything is up in the air, it’s just so unsettling. I hope that everything works out for you this time around. Much luck!

  2. Good luck on getting into the nursing program this fall. I know what you mean about being unsettled. I too, am unsettled. Waiting for DH’s SA results, waiting to know if we have to use donor sperm, waiting for the next cycle to start…and no “calendar” for any of it.

  3. Sorry about the cancellation. A change in protocol can make all the difference.

  4. So this time you will be cycling ahead of me. We are sort of taking a break and will be starting stims in mid July. Read blog…

    I hope we both have MUCH better luck this summer! 🙂

    Also, number 2 is so close!
