All About Me :)

My photo
I was born in Sitka, Alaska in 1983. My parents divorced when I was 5, and I spent my childhood and teens moving back and forth between parents. So, I grew up in Anchorage, Sitka, and Juneau. But, I call Sitka home. I graduated in 2000. I should have gone to college - but didn't. I met my husband in 2002, let him marry me in 2003 :), and had a daughter with him in 2004. She is the pure JOY in our lives. My husband is AD in the United States Coast Guard. This means that life is never boring, and if it is- hey! we get to move every 3 or 4 years. He is currently a DC (Damage Controlman) 2nd class - working on making 1st class. You can also find me on

BETA is 44. Which according to the nurse who called, is good. It's still a tad on the lower end, but it's risen and that's the important part.

Think STICKY!!

I Loathe Waiting

.. because it feels like that's all I ever do.

Got my other blood draw today, and the fucking bitch drew blood from my wrist.


This was after she blew the vein in my left arm *eyeroll*

So, on the way out, I got all freakin' shaky, sweaty, and threw up - thank god I made it to the bathroom JUST in time. I was SO embarrased, nurses all around me...
The lady took 3 viles of blood, and I think it was just too much, too fast. Not to mention, how my vein swelled up was just plain odd.

Anyways, they said they should have the results tomorrow early afternoon. They called Tuesday at about 10:30am, let's just hope that tomorrow it'll be the same time.

I hate waiting!

Well, shit.

So, my BETA number is 28. You are considered pregnant is your number is greater than 5. your HCG levels should be within a certain range depending on how many DPO you are (Days Past Ovulation).
My number is on the lower end of the scale, so I'm going back in tomorrow to have more blood drawn.
Your HCG should double approx every 48 hours. So, we shall see.

The blood has been drawn, and now... we await the results!
Fingers crossed here!!

Last Chance

If you take Clomid for 5 days from 9/29/2008 to 10/3/2008,
you would expect to ovulate between 10/8/2008 and 10/13/2008.

You can start LH testing for ovulation on 10/6/2008.

Optimally you would start making love every 1-2 days starting on 10/6/2008.

I went ahead and plugged my Clomid info on to an online calculator. I've decided to switch up my Clomid taking days from 5-9 of my cycle to days 3-7. What I've been doing hasn't worked, so I figured what the hell. It's my last month, last shot, why not...

Dreamsheet is almost done. I'm looking forward to just hitting the "submit" button with Russ and having that just over and done with. Then the agony of waiting for orders will start.. Still though, it's one less thing to sit and have occupy my brain each day.

As long as we're getting out of here, we'll be happy :)

Holiday seasons sure are coming up fast, can you believe they're already almost here? I'm so glad the weather is finally starting to cool off. I just am NOT made for LIVING in this kind of heat. Vacations and visiting, yes. Living, hell no!

Every day is a day closer to being out of here, and every holiday from now on is a month closer to being out of here. I'm SO excited!! We'll be thrilled with anything we get off our top 5 on "The Sheet", and down from there, we'll be fine too because we'll be leaving!
