GTKY (spring time) — The Bump
Trouble TTC

GTKY (spring time)

As the weather just started to break-here in ohio, of course
it snows all last night and this morning---but i cant help think of spring time !

SOOOO. . .whats everyone looking forward to with spring time?

1) my new litter, i work in wildlife rehab and im L/O in the winter bc we just dont get the animals, so spring time means BABIES ! lots of baby animals, im so excited, we get so hammered, but i need to get out of this house and get busy. !

2)we bought our forever home in sept, and it had ZERO landscaping, so im looking forward to buying those tree swings (fabric hammocks) a patio set, flowers, trees, making a raised garden bed for my skunk rehab, and making this house a home, and inviting. all of the possibilities i guess.

Re: GTKY (spring time)

  • I'm looking forward to warm weather! I live in South Louisiana and we have had two hard freezes this year and that is not common in these parts! Maybe a few mini-vacations with the DH! Hopefully, talking the DH into building a chicken coop and start raising some baby chicks!

  • Just getting out and being active.  Normally, I'd say patio drinks...but with a new dog and IVF coming up, I am excited to be healthier and enjoy walking along the lake, working on the yard, etc.  Two years ago we had a great veggie garden but last year it was crap...I want to be a bit better on that this year.

  • I'm definitely looking forward to painting our porch, it needs some TLC.  I also need to do some landscaping, and I really really want to do a garden this year.  We did one two years ago and I had never had one before it did ok, nothing great but worth it to me.  Last year we didn't do one so i'm hoping this year we will do it.

  • Everything here is starting to perk up and grow. My grass is getting green and some plants are sending up new growth, it makes me so excited.

    I actually can't wait for the garden show so I can buy all my unique plants and spend all day in the yard planting things and then the evening sitting by the pool and grilling and hopefully not drinking an alcoholic beverage. :-)
    Fucking bump!!!!
  • I miss my daily walks in the nice weather and spending the weekends with DH biking around.  I've got a severe case of cabin fever and I'm tired of always being cold!

  • I would give anything just to be able to sit outside on my lawn chair and grill some burgers.  With American cheese.  And grilled asparagus.  With a cold beer in my hand.


    We're expecting another winter storm this weekend :( I am so, so, so over this winter.  It's impacting me more than C.  It seems to roll off her shoulders but I'm very sad.

    We have friends coming in from out of town at the end of March - one who's from California and can grill carne asada like a champ.  I'm hoping so hard that the weather will be good enough for her to cook for us.  If not, I have my famous pollo poblano and Mexican rice recipe to fall back on.  And I'm making tiramisu regardless of the weather - because it is fabulous.

  • As I look outside on our snow/ice covered yard and think of the next cold snap coming to stay through the weekend, it's hard to imagine spring will ever get here. But, I'm looking forward to canoeing. It's probably my favorite thing DH and I do together. We've only gotten into it the last few years, but I love it. This year I want to get wading pants so we can go early in the year and not have to worry about getting in and out of cold water.

  • The first day of spring, March 20, is our 10-year anniversary! Unfortunately, we're not doing anything big like we thought we would 10 years ago.. of course we didn't know then that we'd be spending all this money now! Plus we did just take a big trip in November. But I'm still excited!

    Me: 32  DH: 33  Married: March 2004

    July 2006: started TTC
    2008: HSG (normal), couple rounds of clomid through gyno

    2008 - 2010: dragging my feet out of fear and procrastination
    October 2010: first consultation with RE, dx PCOS and fibroids (DH slightly low count/motility)
    Oct. 2010 - Dec. 2012:  In DENIAL! avoided the issue because I was scared of surgery
    January 2013: returned to RE, fibroids grew significantly
    February 2013: second HSG, fibroids pushed on tubes which blocked them somewhat
    March 2013: MRI to determine what type of surgery may be necessary
    July 29, 2013: fibroids (5) removed via robotic laparascopy
    August 2013 - Nov 2013 : benched due to recent surgery

    IUI #1, Dec. 24, 2013, BFN

    May 16, 2014: wtf consult, start prepping for IVF in June and add injects for one last IUI in the meantime
    IUI #5 started letrozole and bravelle but canceled after HSG led to new diagnosis
    May 21, 2014: third HSG, tubes blocked, one at the beginning, one hydrosalpinx??
    June 11, 2014: consult, approved to move on to IVF because the hydro is not completely blocked therefore allowing fluid to move through slowly rather than backwards
    IVF #1 August 8, 2014 - 3dt of 2 embryos, BFN
    September 17, 2014 - 4th HSG, the right tube is very patent (open!!) dye went straight through this time. Weird!
    October 2, 2014 - started metformin treatment
    November 14, 2014 - blood work, brought A1C down from 5.8 to 5.5
    November 26, 2014 - RE finally back from vaca and reviewed my chart, no more IVFs for rest of calendar year
    December 1, 2014 - Right after Thanksgiving, I called a new clinic and got in right away! Plan for IVF
    December 17, 2014 - ER! 29 retrieved (!!), 16 mature, all 16 fertilized (ICSI)
    IVF #2 December 20, 2014 - 3dt of 3 embryos, BFN

  • Warm sunshine!!!!!  I can't wait for days warm enough for me to go outside and read in the back yard. Also, I'm excited to be able to landscape our yard.  We bought our house in June and in Arkansas the grass is already brown at that point because it's so hot, so we decided to wait on the landscaping till this spring.  I'm so excited to plant some maple trees that will be BEAUTIFUL in the fall and flowers in the flower beds!
