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

Finally got called back this afternoon, I really hate how long they take getting back to you. anyways, she said the BETA is less than 5, which is a negative test.
I really don't know what the hell is going on now, because I've never been late on Clomid. I'm 5 days late now.
She's going to fax the results to Dr. Blackwood - I have a feeling he's going to want to give me Provera again.

In Roughly 24 Hours...

I should have the results of my BETA. I got my blood drawn this morning, wait this AFTERNOON... my appt was for 10:15am. Guess what time I left? 12.30pm!! Over 2 hours for a urine test (which is POINTLESS, I tell them EVERY time...) and a blood draw.
I totally sacked out in the room while we were waiting, lol. Ryleigh almost fell asleep as well.
I will say, that I'll be surprised if I'm NOT pregnant. Because along with being 4 days late now, I FEEL pregnant. Well, my bewbs feel pregnant. Lol
I really hope this is it! I hope I'm pregnant, and that this (potential) little bug wants to stick around.
It could be some great news just in time - my mom and sister are flying in to Memphis on Thursday, it'll be neat to do something fun to announce it to them in person :)
I'll update as soon as I know!!!!!! Thanks for being supportive *hugs*

Why Does My Body Have To Be SO Ridiculous?!

I mean seriously, a pregnancy test is the most BASIC of things... either the HCG hormone is there, or it isn't!!
I hate not being able to rely on them. Still no AF, still no "+" on a HPT....
So, I'm going to call the clinic and go in. That's another thing that irks me, I hate that I have to wait a day to find out the results. I was spoiled by SEARHC in Sitka, they had results in about 2 hours :)
Will update when I know something - thanks for all the sweet thoughts you guys, it means a lot.

And..... it's "-"

But, if you've kept up with me, we know that for ME... this doesn't mean anything. Last two pregnancies showed up" -" on urine tests, but "+" on blood tests. We'll just have to wait and see!

Until then, I'm like Dory on "Finding Nemo".... "Just keep peeing! Just keep peeing!" haha.

Took the last of my Clomid two days ago. Not too bad so far, I'm definitely getting the headaches and hot flashes this time around. The mood swings don't seem TOO bad, yet.

I'm going to make an appointment to go back and talk to my OB about Progesterone and baby aspirin. They're two things I wonder about that seem like a relatively easy "fix", and even if later on, testing showed that I didn't need them - it won't hurt anything.
This is his last shot, so to speak - if I end up feeling brushed off again, I'm going to just get my own referral to either the specialist in Memphis or the on in Jackson.
Beth has been helping me a lot - she's a very sweet gal <3. She's told me that the doctor in Jackson is easier to get to, so I might try there first.

I'm really looking forward to my NOLA trip with the other Coastie wives :) So, I'm trying to keep in mind that I've got something "big" to look forward to, and plan for.
It helps me to not think about -this- all day, every day.
