keep calm & carry on

I've been such a slacker when it comes to blogging.  Partially because I started "Fifty Shades of Grey" & oh.my.god. I can't put the thing down.  I am on book two & so wrapped up in them, I haven't found time to do much more but read.  I highly recommend these books to ANYONE.

So yesterday was my dreaded annual exam, but I had actually been looking forward to going & talking to my doc about trying to get pregnant, & what comes next after we've tried for a year.  She is recommending that we give it another two months, which would bring us to a solid year of trying & then seeing the fertility specialist.  They would order some testing for me, for Joe, & then based on the results, would start me on Clomid.  I'll be honest, the thought of having to go on medication is off-putting, but I am willing to do whatever it takes.  She did say that it's possible that the trauma of our motorcycle accident could have put a hold on things.  I am optimistic that we won't need to even be tested & will hopefully end up pregnant in the next two months.  I was glad to find out what the next steps will be if we can't get pregnant on our own.  She said that my current methods (temperature, ovulation tests, tracking, prenatal vitamins, & exercise) are all great & I should continue them.    So I'm trying to stay optimistic, positive, & stress-free so that things can happen naturally.

This past weekend our good friend Mike had a Western themed house warming party.  It was fun.  We didn't win the costume contest, but we both looked pretty good if I do say so myself!

And, in honor of National Dog Day on Sunday... my sweet potato Frankie J.  My little peanut, puppy, stinky, baby.  So, so, glad that his foster mom thought that we were a perfect match, because we are! 

Lot's of great things coming up to take our minds off of baby-making.  This weekend, bachelorette party, then camping at Poopy's in Savanna with some friends, & riding all day Monday.  Hoping to visit the Potosi Brewery in Potosi, Wisconsin.  A wedding next weekend, bridal shower the following, then finally our 1 year anniversary getaway weekend!  I can't wait.  I have a couple of surprises for Joe, I can't wait to give them to him.  And of course, looking forward to the hot air balloon ride!  

Rain-check on the photos of the house... again.
