Lots of Updates!!

Ok, quite a bit has gone on over the last 24 hours.

I had a job interview yesterday afternoon. It lasted over 4 hours. I think that is a good sign. I didn't get home til after 7:00 last night. It is for a Risk Management Administrative Assistant. Sounds good to me...Hee-Hee. I will just be happy to have found a job. Hopefully I will know something more about that by the end of this week or early next week.

A lot of people already know this, but after 3 years of trying, Justin and I are going to be parents. We are very excited about this. We will have our first doctors appointment tomorrow - to confirm it. My rough guestimate of a due date is around Dec 19 to the 21st. We will see how close I am. I wanted to wait to say anything about it until we were a bit farther along, but with everything we have already been throught just to get to this point - I really couldn't stay quiet.

For those that didn't know -
We started trying to get pregnant right after we were married. It was a year after that, that it was determined that I did not ovulate. Great - Can't get pregnant without doing that. After many tests, I went on a 9 month round of Clomid. It seemed to be working as I would go have blood work done every month and every month my progesterone levels would come back very high. That meant having to have a blood pregnancy test done. Month after month it came back as negative. I think that was about the lowest point for me. Every month, we got our hopes so high only to be shot back down. Every month I actually contemplated if it was worth the heartache to do if for another round. Last September I had a scope surgery done to check my tubes. That came out very well. My tubes were clear, so now it was Justin's turn to be checked out.
After all of this, they could not determine a reason for our infertility. I had actually made an appointment with a doctor in Lincoln to look into my other options, when we got the word that we would be moving to Georgia.

I canceled the appointment and got busy focusing on the move. Must have been all of my focus on moving, because we actually did it on our own. I'm not sure how I feel about this whole morning sickness thing. Whoever named it that needs to be shot. Should be called "All Day and All Night Sickness". I will be glad when this part of it is over. Yesterday, I woke up and felt really good. Not even a little bit queasy. I thought "Yes, this is going to be a good day". Teaches me to think. About 9:00 last night it hit. Needless to say, I went to bed pretty early.

Guess that is about it for now. Will post more after my appointment tomorrow!!!
