Some really important updates.

Well kidlings.  While I would like to come up with an awe-inspiring post… I have been knee-deep in the shit I call homework.  Seriously I die a little inside knowing I am only able to pick and choose blogs to read right now, when I used to read many.  55 days left of my Bachelors program.  Ugh.  The end is in sight.  Just beyond those four papers and yonder.

Remember how I said in this post how I was fat? Ok, well I still haven’t really done anything about it except whine and spent an inordinate amounts of time staring at myself in the mirror in sheer horror.  Oh, and eat Girl Scout cookies. 

Now, I have decided to do something about it.  I have joined Nutrisystem.  I did it a few years ago and lost about 20 pounds.  I’m doing it again in hopes of losing some weight before my sister’s wedding.  My first batch has just shipped out, so I am excited.  So ready to get going on this stupid weight loss.

My beta has been officially scheduled for Thursday.  THAT has been a whole lot of fun, let me tell you.  No, seriously I’m going to tell you because this shit. pisses. me. off.

This morning I called my Women’s Health Clinic to ask if they received the beta order that CRM had faxed them a week and a half ago.  Just like the first month, they hadn’t.  Of course not.  Pop on over to this post to refresh your memory of this stellar customer service experience I had with the women’s clinic.  So I had CRM fax over the beta order again, but it may take 1-2 days for the order to get scanned in to the computer.  I finally called CRM and scheduled a 7:30 beta on Thursday just in case the order goes missing again.  Seriously.  I try to make it easier on myself by getting the order sent over to my clinic by my house, but it seems easier to drive an hour in morning rush hour, get my blood drawn, and drive ALLL the way back into work.  And that’s sad.

Little update on my ehem, lady bits.  We are doing much better.  I like this oral progesterone much better, except for these gnarly dizzy spells that come on about 20 minutes after taking the pill.  Every. Single. Time.  And heartburn.  So bad it makes my mouth water.  But at least I’m not scratching my naughty region out, right?  Give and take.

Pregnancy symptoms?  None.  And I am not analyzing any either.  Although I am tempted to cheat and pee on a stick Wednesday night.  I don’t know.  I don’t feel pregnant.

Your will power is amazing!!! Can't believe you haven't peed on a stick yet! Sending lots of prayers and good wishes a your way for great results this week!


The lozenges made me dizzy too. I had forgotten about it. For that reason they recommended taking them with food. But it didn't seem to make a difference. Sticky baby dust your way!


Just had to share that the code I had to enter to leave that last comment started with ept. 🙂


OMG, I just read your prior post, sorry about your experience with the rude nurse at CRM. I bust out laughing at your line about the order coming from the Centre for Reproductive Medicine, not Teen Crack Whores! Oh you should have said that to her!

Hang in there.. I always POAS…i just feel like it helps me prepare. What fertility center do you go to? I was just curious because I go to CCRM…CRM…Sounds similar! 🙂

I'm on the PALEO diet/Fertility diet and am down 11 pounds in 3 weeks!! It's a lot of hard work but worth it. Good Luck on Nutrisystem!


Yeah, I've tried to have my blood work drawn at other clinics so that I don't have to drive all the way to the fertility clinic, but it NEVER goes well. There's always some sort of mix up, so I've given up on that.


Those damn Girl Scouts! I have the same problem with Thin Mints (I think since "crack" is one of the ingredients, they should really list that and warn people). Best of luck on your beta!


We spend so much money on medical providers and they never can get their crap together, right? I'm hoping you'll never get to lose weight this time because you'll be pregnant before you can! Best of luck Thursday!

Hi, new reader here! 🙂

I know how you feel, Girl Scout Cookie season is going to be the death of me…I had blood work done this morning and probably bled chocolate from all the Thin Mints and Samoas I've been having lately…

Good luck tomorrow!

Praying for a BFP on Thursday! I was killing the Shortbreads and totally avoiding my Thin Mints until our appt last Thursday when we found out about the m/c. No Shortbreads since then. Just killing the Thin Mints and put a major hurting on a bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs today! I would totally drive an hour out of the way to avoid the awesome service you received last time. I was actually telling my hubby about that after my transfer. My RE was in the room typing notes in my chart, but I figured he wasn't listening. As soon… Read more »


Only 55 more days and you will be an educated woman! Good luck! I know what you mean about not being able to keep up with all the blog reading. Now that softball has started, I am waaayyyy behind.

Good luck with your beta!! Is that tomorrow? Ahhh!!! Can't wait to hear about it. Hopefully you won't be needing to worry about losing weight for another 9 months!
