HI!! well I am not sure where to reply to now, I just clicked on the FB link you put up Christina and it got me here... I have tried a few times unsuccessfully to get to here but I cant find the thread. So nice to read about everyone.
Christina, thanks for starting the group and linking me here. I miss you girls!
Im sorry Tricia to hear about your loss this summer. Im glad for you that you were able to get away with your family to have some fun.
I am excited for your (Brook, Sabrina and Teshy) impending births. This year is flying by.
Austin and I are good. We keep traveling to Tampa for baseball games, have joined a kickball league and are preparing for marathon (or for me 1/2 marathon) season. I went to the UK with my mom to visit the grandparents a few weeks ago and it was really nice to spend time with my mom and family. I have been in private practice now for 2 months and am starting to get referrals (and be busier, although I have to say, I am totally enjoying having less stress, and more time to work on projects at home).
This coming Wednesday I go for round 2 of fertility testing. I had blood drawn the other month and they say I have enough eggs to party (Im 36, 37 in Dec), no cystic fibrosis and no rubella. This week I go for an HSG where they flush your fallopian tubes with a liquid that you can see on xray. I am told that a lot of people get preggers after this. Austin and I have been trying and not stressing (honestly I wish there were more years in a woman's fertility so he and I could just cruise and travel for a few more years without worrying about it) but I am an oldie (but goodie) so here we go on the fertility stuff. I am actually pretty nervous about the HSG. Its going to hurt- kind of like a DNC bc they have to open your cervix. Nothing compared t childborth I suppose. I wish they would give me valium. I had lasix on my eyes about 10 years ago and the dr offered me valium and it was to best.... nooooo problemo ... anyway. Wednesday is the day. Cross your fingers for no big blocks. (if my tubes are blocked then pretty much the only solution is IVF and thats 12k a pop and like 25% success!
I am not sure if you ladies will see this here or in the group. I will report it there.
I hope all are doing well. I can believe summer is over, I want it back!!
Oh and one last fun thing... Austin and I are going to the Dominican Republic in Feb for a February Destiination wedding.... on my my BMs is marrying her FI there on 2/5 .... they were at our wedding and said it was so fun that they wanted to do the same. Also one of my bffs and one of Austin's groomsmen hit it off in Jamaica and now they are living together in Manhattan (she is from So Cal!!)... Ah love in the air
Have a great weekend!
