What an emotional day!

My day started off so peaceful. I was excited since our NT Scan was today, and I couldn't wait to get past this milestone. I left work mid day to head over to Kaiser for the u/s only to find out it won't happen (explanation here)

Then, I get off work and drive home.... I head to our front office to pick up some paperwork... and come to find out there is some extra work MH and I have to do before the papers get signed. Wish we would have known 3 weeks ago when I brought them down to you! Now they are due this Friday!! ::Sigh::

Aaaaaand theeeeeen, my mom happens to call just as I walk through the door and had burst into tears. I answer thinking she might sooth me and make me feel better, but she goes on to tell me how bad stress is for the baby. Geeee, thanks mom! After I told her how I felt about that, we made up and got off the phone :)

Now I'm just tired again, hoping to hit the sack at 8pm again tonight! Going to bed so early has never felt so good. Just call me g-ma Papps!

What a month!

I'm so sorry I've been slacking in the blogging department. Time has just gotten away from me!

Fatigue has been visiting me since my BFP, so I basically come home from work, and veg on the couch.... then in bed between 8:30 and 9:30 (I live an exciting life right now) :o)
I count my blessings daily that my ticker continues to grow each day, and that today I am still pregnant. It's starting to sink in that this might be my take home baby, and I'm thrilled! MH and I decided to spill the beans and go public after out NT scan next week if all goes ok, well at least we'll start sharing.

My best friend has been staying with us since Friday..... she lives out of state and is hoping to move here. She dropped off her resume yesterday and already got a call back for an interview today! I'm so excited for her! I think it would be awesome to have here here, especially once baby Papps arrives :)
I'm hoping to muster up enough energy to stay up late and do the underground tour here in the city. I think she would love it!

So yeah, this is my uneventful and boring life right now. I haven't written much mainly because there is not a whole lot to talk about LOL Hopefully in the next few weeks I get more energy and hopefully will have more to write about :)

There's still a baby there!

I can't tell you how relieved I was to see a flickering heart beat again. When the RE was moving the wand around, the baby waved at us a few times! Totally melted my heart. HB is at a strong 170, the sac and everything else looks good :) I have officially graduated to my midwife & OB!!

Here's a picture of our little gummy bear

Free Femara Prescription

So, when I cycled I used this website, printed up this coupon, and had my RE sign it. I brought it in to a pharmacy and got my Rx for free! (so I know it works)

The only thing is I only got 10 pills (based off of my dosage needed for that cycle) instead of a months worth because the RE's nurse only filled it for what I needed. BUT STILL, saved me over $100!

Try it out, I promise it works :) Just click on Print, and you'll get your unique code Click Here

A new car!

Ok, well not really a new car just yet, but I brought my car in Tuesday for a new clutch, new brakes and suspension so it's kinda new right? lol

I decided to keep my 2001 Honda Civic for at least another year just to be on the safe side money wise, so since my car needed some major repairs, I figured when is a better time to fork out the cash than when I get my taxes back!?! Well, I get to pick it up today and I am beyond thrilled!

I'm very grateful they gave me a rental car to use, but man every night as soon as I walk through the door it's straight to the shower. This car makes me feel so dirty! Today I'm exchanging it for MY car and I'm so happy!

My car will be brand new! Well kinda sorta ;)
