Movin' along

Things are moving right along lately. My fam and I made the 3 hour drive to A-Town on Thursday night. It was actually a good drive. The girls didn't even fall asleep, which was surprising. (probably had something to do with the fact that they borrowed my mom's portable DVD player and had their new Ipods too) Oh, and by the way, thanks Mom for getting them those Ipods; when they have the earbuds in they apparently can't hear anything and obviously can't hear themselves singing either! They won't be on American Idol anytime soon.
Anyway, we made it to M&M's house at exactly 10pm, stayed up and chatted for a little while, then got ready for bed. Kevin and I talked about how we felt, even more so after being there, that M&M will be such great parents. They are so loving and have such open hearts! And the IF is a big kid at heart, it's so funny! (My girls really liked all his toys!) I can't wait to help them fulfill their dream.
So my appointment the next morning went well, just a regular physical and ultrasound. The staff was really nice too. Here's what was freaking me know the Dr. asks all these questions and then he gets to "when was your LMP (last menstral period)?" And I answer meekly "um, Nov 30th"...the Dr. looked at me kinda sideways and was like "hmm, so you're late..." And of course M was there too and was like "um, do we need to get a pregnancy test?" OH DEAR GOD NO!!! Can you imagine how that would have gone down? OMG, I don't even want to. Anywho, so needless to say I was totally schitzing when I had to get the ultrasound cuz now all I had in my head was that there was gonna be a baby there and how the hell would I explain that?! Well nothing was there (not that I really thought there would be, but the thought was placed in my head so of course I took it and ran with it), but then the Dr. was like "oh well it would be too early to see anything anyway. Oh great. Thanks Doc. (I swear he said that just to freak me out!)
Anyway, long story short, I did start my cycle and it's TOTALLY NORMAL to have a late cycle after stopping all those meds. :-) So I'll start my BCP's on Wednesday! And depending on how things are moving along with my IM will determine our schedule. I'm excited! And I'll keep you posted.
**Oh yea....HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!*** :-)
