My boy has godparents 

I haven’t had much time to post with the move at work and Joey needing so much attention because of his reflux but I wanted to share a couple pictures of his baptism.  I am in the bath on my phone so this is a little jumbled, I promise to pretty it up at some point when I can hop on the computer for personal use but I don’t know when that will be!!  A full time working accountant momager makes finding personal time pretty difficult!  Adding school in the mix in 3 weeks is only going to make it more strenuous but a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do to make big strides in making a better life for this little family!! 

Much love to my mother for taking pictures and not being in a single one. We will have plenty of celebrations for her to be in them though…she is a HUGE part of Joey’s life and counts down the minutes until she can see her little man again!!

Preparing for the get together afterwards was a little difficult because Joseph (hubby!) was sick but this mama got it alllll done in time!  All with the help of the k’tan!


Finally…here’s some pictures of the many faces of Joey and the last weekend we spent just hanging at his very first attendance at a birthday party!

I am trying my hardest to keep this updated!!  We have a follow up reflux appointment in 2 weeks so we are hoping things will improve with him (comfort wise) soon…until then they don’t want to increase his medication until the follow up.

Four more sleeps :)

Wow…I took my final bcp yesterday.  Now I just wait until Friday for my baseline appointment for instructions on when to begin.  I will start this stim phase with a whole vial of Menpur and 300iu of Gonal-F and we will go from there eventually adding Ganirelix in again (my favorite =/ ). I’ve never had this much medication all at once before.  I can’t believe that in a little over 2 weeks I will be having the egg retrieval again.  It’s both upsetting and surreal at the same time because it wasn’t supposed to happen like this…but I am working to make sure that I am in the best state, mentally, to take this on again in search of my rainbow baby(ies).

Over the weekend I officially became Godmother to my nephew, Benjamin.  It was an honor.  Here’s a picture of little Benjamin and his Godparents, myself and his Great Uncle John.

And here’s myself with my adorable niece Paige…she was so well behaved during mass and when she was baptized as well.  She had the whole congregation laughing when she announced her intentions on going swimming in the fountain.  It was cute as hell!

It really was an awesome weekend.  It’s going to be a lonely next few weeks as we jump on this roller coaster ride again being so far away from my family, but my decision to stick close to home for the next several weeks is for my health, sanity, and best interest of my potential rainbow babies.  I intend to stay as calm and relaxed as possible and will be avoiding stressful situations…I intend on doing everything I can to make this attempt the one that sticks.  BOB has been in my dreams so I know he is watching over me and guiding me through it.

So 4 more sleeps and I will know what we are doing.  Wow.
