So this week has been crazy busy!! Last weekend was the annual Coweta Fall Festival where a certain little girl I know, performed in front of the grandstand with her gymnastics class...she was the cutest little lion out there...

My two pretty nieces...Maddy and Haylei

So all day Saturday, we spent getting ready for the big night!

On Monday, I had my endometrial biopsy done. It wasn't quite as bad as I thought, I think! Does that make sense?? Once I got to my appt, Claudia, the lab tech/nurse pulled me back and explained how he would do it, from then I really began panicking...."He's going to do what?!?! with what?!?" I sat back in the waiting room awaiting for my name to be called. I had huge, giant tears in my eyes and so my bestie, Amber called me and then my sis-in-law, Valarie called and they helped me to calm down. Once I went back to my procedure, it went pretty quick, Dr. Bundren asked if I had any questions and then explained why he does the biopsy. So with that said, he began. I felt some "high pitched" cramping for a few minutes and then it was all over. Took maybe 5 minutes and I as able to go back to work afterwards. I should get the results sometime next week. I will be anxiously awaiting!!

At work, we've been working lots of overtime, with our merger with two other hospitals in the Tulsa area, we've had a lot of work to do. But it does make the time go fast and for nice paychecks! I figure, I might as well take all of it I can get for now!

Now for a few more pics from the Fall Festival

Long week

Whew! It has been a long, emotionally taxing week! On Monday, Matt, Eric, Haylei, and I made a trip to the Tulsa Zoo! It was the perfect weather and the kids had a blast!!

Haylei and Eric

Monday afternoon I found out one of my sister's good friends for nearly her whole life had an accidental overdose and was in a coma. She sadly passed away early Tuesday morning, she left behind her two little kids who are 11 and 4. It is just heartbreaking. I just got home from her funeral a little while ago. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with those little men.

Also, on Tuesday a friend of mine, after waiting for 13 years and being told she'd most likely never have a baby, gave birth to a beautiful little girl!!

Wednesday was the 4th anniversary of the day the baby I was supposed to get to adopt, JLS, was born. I remember that day 4 years ago, while sitting at work, getting the phone call that he had been born, but that there was a problem, and I wasn't going to be able to go to the hospital to get him.

So needless to say, my emotions have been all over the place this week. I am so glad it is Friday and maybe my head will quit pounding as we just spend some much needed time at home!!

Catch up!

Whew! Its been 3 weeks since I posted! Here's a little about whats been happening at the Simon household....

August 15th I turned the big 29! Holy cow, where did the time go?!?!
August 22nd-I had my follow up appt after my surgery and we got to go over the plan for getting a baby! Dr. B started me on Progesterone since I hadn't had my cycle since June 21st. I began Progesterone that night and took it for 7 days. Once my cycle started, I was instructed to call Mary Catherine, his nurse. She called me in Clomid to begin taking day 3 and continue through day 7. I was also scheduled for an endometrial biopsy to be done on day 24 of my cycle. The biopsy will show if the Clomid actually made me ovulate as that is all the Dr believes is my problem at this point. Since I take Glumetza for the PCOS and had my endo lasered, if he can get me to ovulating, I should be fine. If the biospy shows that the Clomid didn't work, we'll begin Follistim injections the next month, if the biopsy did show I ovulated, then i'll just continue on it for a couple more months and if I don't get pregnant on that, we'll switch to the Follistim. Whew!

So today I am taking my last pill of 50mg Clomid. I have had hot flashes galore, but haven't much felt like doing bodily harm to anyone, so thats a good thing!! HA! My biopsy is in two weeks and I am already nervous about that, but I know it'll all be okay. I trust my doctor completely and I am willing to do whatever it takes to have a child.

So we get a long 3 day weekend!! Yay! i am a little sad that we aren't going camping this Labor day weekend, but it has just been way to hot to be sleeping outdoors and sweating on purpose! Miss thang will have gymnastics tomorrow and then as soon as that is over, we're heading to the lake for the day with Nana and Papa and all Haylei's cousins!!
