Cheese Life

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

I forgot to mention that on Monday before the dogs got into it, Glebe's owner turns to me and goes, "What is on your license plate? Cheese Life? I saw the bright yellow, and I couldn't exactly read the first word...?"

Yes. I am advocating a life devoted to cheese. Don't come between me and my parmesean!!!!

(edited to add that my license plate is "Choose Life"...not any reference to dairy!)


Thanks so much for your encouragement to me about my afternoon/evening on Monday!!! Luckily, I'm sure thanks in part to your prayers and hopes, yesterday was great (i.e. noneventful)!!!

Mr. A feels strongly that he should accept the trip offer to go to the conference for his company. And as the leader of our family, I am deferring to his judgement here, but it's not without some fretting on my part. To his credit, lest it seems that he cares only about his career, before he considered the trip further, he did have me check with my RE to see if his absence those days means absolutely 0% of success. My RE's nurse noted that it is fairly impossible to predict how I will respond to injectibles, but most of the time injectibles bump up ovulation a little bit and alot of women are ready for IUI on cd12. Since we're not doing an IUI next cycle, I just substituted in the idea that most women are ready for some optimal babymakin' on cd12. And she noted that the swimmers can live up to 72 hours, so even if I didn't ovulate till cd14 or something, it might not be a complete lost cause. She said since our meds are mostly covered by insurance, she'd probably go for it.

Sounds good to me! And Mr. A, who is walking the fine line between providing for our family and expanding our family. Haha! God bless him :)

And after some prayer and reminders to myself that my ways (plans) are not God's ways (Is 55:8-13), I am feeling pretty peaceful about this new developement for next month. Who knows what God has in store for us between now and then...I am so excited to find out! I pray that God will use all these things to bring us our first child(ren). I know He is going to be beside me always, for I am worth more than many sparrows, and not one of them is forgotten by Him!! (Luke 12:6-7)

I hope the whole timing of things work for you two. I had similar issues the first month I was on clomid. We decided to just go ahead with the clomid even though he might be gone the times I needed him just to see what the clomid would do to me. Things worked out in that I learned I needed a higher dose to have anything happen. I'm glad I didn't wait a month for that.

I am also being reminded that my plans are not always God's plans and ultimately, I want His plan for us. Sounds like a good plan you have right now and having peace with it is even better. Lots of luck...and prayers!

So glad you had a better day.

We've had the timing issues, too, but I was always grateful we went ahead and usually there was some indication my body wasn't responding the way it was anticipated and I would need a higher dose/different meds. With you, it looks like your timing will still be great.

My husband travels for work, too, and often at inopportune times...hoping it works out for you regardless of the inconvenient travel. Plus, it sounds like this will be very good for his career. You always have next month :)

I love "cheese life." When I was in undergrad, one of the guys in our pro-life group was updating our display case, and another student saw the shirt that said "[School] for Life." He asked, "Is that some sort of alumni group?" My friend explained that it was, actually, a pro-life organization - and the other student said, "Well, I think you should change it. It would be a lot more popular if it were an alumni thing." :)

So glad you are trusting the Lord with the situation -- it will be exciting to see how he works in the midst of the new meds and the traveling.

I did have one thought, can you take a vacation with him? :)

"cheese life" - oh that made me laugh! Praying for the timing to work out perfectly and for God's perfect way and timing for the children He has planned for you.
