IComLeavWe – July

Sorry this blog has become inactive since I signed up for ICLW this month. With the last failed cycle we have taken an extended break. I am still waiting on AF to arrive naturally without having to take provera. If you would like to stop by my non TTC/IF blog you can find me here:
Two Kids and a Party

It is a party planning blog so there are baby showers and kids birthday parties. If you stop by please don’t mention TTC/IF

AF is still MIA.  I had another midwife appointment today, and another BFN.
I actually didn’t think she would do another test so I emptied my bladder before they called me back.  The nurse did my BP then put me in an exam room.  The U/S machine was on and still had the screen shot of the last patients baby.  It was little, only 8w 5d.  I didn’t cry, so that is good.
My midwife came in and we talked about my cycles since March.  She wants me to up my Met to help with the weight loss.  Then she said she wanted to do a repeat test.  I told her I had already gone and she said they only needed a few drops.  I went and sat in the bathroom and finally got out a few drops LOL.
I stood there while the nurse did the test.  She drove me nuts.  She kept glancing at it and walking away.  Finally after a few minutes she picked it up and tilted the test and squinted at it.  I was gonna scream! I did not need her analyzing the test like that.  I do that enough on my own. Finally she said that it looked negative and so I walked to the check out counter.  My midwife met me there and said that yes it was negative.  She wants me to take provera again to induce AF, but I don’t want too.

Since we are stopping treatment right now I don’t really see any need to make her come.  It is too hot to deal with provera side effects and then deal with AF.

Scavenger Hunt 2010

I have been a part of a GREAT photography site for a while, Clickin’ Moms.  Yes, it is a membership only site/forum. I originally signed up during a promotion and got a discount. I now pay the monthly subscription and I don’t even miss the $8 I have learned SO much from the women on that site. I am just a hobbyist, but I want to take good photos of my family and friends. I think my photos and post processing have improved since I joined, but that is just my opinion. I did buy my DSLR from a member on that site and saved myself about $200! That alone is savings enough for me.

Yesterday they started a fun new contest for the month of July! It is a photo scavenger hunt! I printed out my list of items and it is about 4 pages long right now, they will be adding items during the month as well.  It isn’t too late to join in the fun because you have all month to take your photos and post them.  I can’t wait to get out and start snapping photos with my sign.

I will be posting some of my pictures from the Scavenger Hunt during the month. I hope you will join me!

COHEN

Michael Cohen Marshall

Born in Dallas, TX on June 7, 2010, the first child of Megan and Brent Marshall, Michael Cohen Marshall came into the world at 7 lbs. 6 oz., with a hearty cry and a congenital heart condition. He was known as The Mighty Cohen in his short little life, for he endured multiple surgeries and procedures. For twelve days Cohen fought with the heart of a lion, but on June 18, 2010, his little body could not match his fighting spirit. He was delivered into the Kingdom of Heaven at 8:35pm in his parents’ arms. He was loved and adored by his parents, their families and friends every day of his life. Cohen touched thousands of lives with his story. The world came to know him through Megan’s blog and many felt they knew him long before he was even born. Sometimes the smallest feet leave the biggest footprints in this world and Cohen has left a lasting impression on us all; he was truly an amazing little boy. His parents want to thank all of his supporters, doctors, nurses and prayer warriors for their care, concern, support and prayers. Cohen is survived by his parents: Megan & Brent Marshall; Grandparents; Aunts; Uncles; and countless cousins, family and friends. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Cohen Marshall Memorial Trust.
