I can't wait to hear details about the trip! How late did you all bd? And do you think your meds are working?
Expecting our first child in February... Team pink!
1st beta 14dpo = 150
2nd beta 18dpo = 782
3rd beta 23 dpo = 5,362
Missing my puppy, but grateful to have shared a bond with her for two years.
We only got to BD ONCE! oi. Could not get Reme to crash, and since we were all in the same area, we needed him asleep to do it... and in the early am hours we were both too tired/drugged on sleep meds to do anything about it. It was cd 10 when we got to BD, so it's pushing it
But it's ok... another month or two will be a good thing. He's looking at a job in Colorado after that, and Nola and I would fly down there (since I think Driving would take me too long.. like a week) for the 8 weeks he would be there and we'd start trying.
I'm not sure if the meds are working or not yet....course I missed this mornings dose so I will have to skip my prenatal ( can't take them with calcium) tonight. What I did notice (and some may have noticed on fb) is my summer capris needed to be tied tighter to stay up. Last year they were tight.. and I packed extra sweaters so no one would notice they were too tight.... and instead Reme managed to almost pants me twice! I was stupid and didn't take initial measurements. I'll take some this week thought
No Reba, the thyroid meds should spurr some weight loss. I still have some of the cough from my cold... so I've yet to venture to the pool. I might try later this week. Course it's allergy season, so that doesn't help!!!!!
The BEST part? My engagement ring fits. I haven't been able to handle wearing it since our Anniversary in Sept. I feel more complete being able to put it on again!!!
DH is really depressed. This is the longest he's ever been away, and with him staying for another job it means it's gone even longer. We really need the money though, so it will be worth it. He did go all jerk on me and try and lecture me about spending money while we are trying to save it while I was there this weekend....I wanted to knock his head off.
I mean, no, we did not get as much put back as we wanted. But $1200 in car/medical bills. $1100 in monthly bills. Two 1000 mile trips.. not to mention food and gas in general... Oh, plus the $167 in weekly child support he pays. this stuff adds up! Man doesn't pay the bills, so he shouldn't complain about them.
This job is 3-4 weeks at least. And is another $600ish a week... so that will help make up for the fact he will spend more in gas and living for this part of it. By the time he comes home we should have about $7000 in the bank!!! His unemployment is MORE than enough to cover our bills... we just need to cut out the eating out and wasteful grocery trips. And there's no guarantee he will come home when the job is done, he might get another, or stay there and work base crew. Never know with him.
And of course, there are 18 jobs going on around the country... so there are lots of opportunities. I will be going for the next one we figure. In fact, I will probably sell my car prior. We are going to sell it anyway, no reason to just leave it parked here for months. Better to just get rid of it, and I'll buy something else when I come home (we are going to buy me a van).
I'm glad your engagement ring fits again! I hope that you are able to get down to the pool and swim a little once you are feeling better.
I'm sorry that your DH is depressed. He shouldn't have lectured you about money, though. That's really annoying. You are an adult and you know when to spend or not spend money.
DH has about 100k in debt from unpaid bills. Bills they HAD money to pay, she just didn't. He's terrified of it happening again.. but he just goes about it the wrong way. You should have seen his face when I told him last night he had to keep his spending under $400 a week so I wouldn't have to touch the income to pay bills. Was priceless.

Your poor DH - I am sure he is so lonely with out you and Reme around. At least he has you going with him for the next one to look forward too!
I can't seem to remember to take the meds. I was never told anything special, until doing some research last year. it has to be taken at a certain time. Has to be taken at least FOUR hours before any other vitamin or mineral. Empty stomach etc.... had no idea and I took this drug for over a decade!
Other than that it's pretty routine for me. As long as it gets my levels down far enough to get knocked up I will be happy.
We realized tonight if I hadn't h ave gotten Nola, I could go down there now and stay with him. But alas.. I can't, plus Reme has gotten used to having me around. He was M-A-D when I said today I might go for the next one. LOL.
This cold is kicking my butt. This is terrible... my head feels like it's got 100lbs of goo inside it. And my taste buds are suffering. I worked so hard on potato salad and ham.. and I can barely taste it! Of course, I work tomorrow night... which isn't going to help at all.. not to mention with DH being in a different timezone there's no chance of an after work phone call
I slept like crud last night. I ended up running to Walmart at 1am for Mucinex tablets... blah.
after all the complaining about money.. what did we go and do? drain our checking acct and get an nsf fee. I'm always so freaking careful, but gas stations never accurately report when we fill up.. and of course we filled up over 8x this weekend.... *head desk* I'm not telling him. LOL.
And then there was the pesky matter of our Credit card with a 50 balance, 200 limit.. and $70 in available credit? I know I'm bad at math.. but not that bad!
lol I've yet to find "crazy expensive" gas anywhere in the US. I came down here being used to spending over $5 a gallon at all times (We paid over $6 a gallon after Hurricane Katrina in NS!), so $3.80 is still super cheap to me. Where DH is, gas was 3.25... it's more the fact I drove 1100 miles (more like 1200 since the GPS was having fun routing me to nowhere...) that did it.
Thankfully our CC is showing the proper amount this morning, and I paid the balance since DH got paid today. So I feel a little better. Just sucks that I was going to get my new Cell this week, and now I feel guilty so I won't do it.
My credit card does that sometimes too!!! it is so weird when the amount spent + credit left do not = credit limit. I never understand that!!!! I hate how gas pulls out random amount too. It is so annoying - I have had that happen in the past too.
Hope you are feeling better soon!
Thank you *Kiliki* for the amazing siggy!!
Nope, I ended up in FastCare today. I have a chest infection, ear infection and sinus infection. YAY! Steroids and Antibiotics along with my puffers and they hope I will be feeling better soon.
I made a post on the main board, but I'm thinking of quitting my job. My boss ignored my availability for next week, and made DH cry (he's depressed). Not to mention it doesn't appear to be benefiting us at all in taxes, since every dollar I earn here the govt taxes DH even more for.... ugh. Not to mention I'm afraid to work out at all because it might make me hurt at work... and that's just not healthy.
I haven't decided for sure yet... But he said I can quit if I promise to work out more once I'm not sick. It does mean giving up my new cell phone. Well, he didn't say that, but I won't buy a $350 phone and up my bill by $5 if I'm not going to be working at all. Course, DH might have other things to say.. he's been looking forward to obtaining my Ipod when I got a new phone
DH isn't allowed to put Gas on the Credit Card, only out of our bank account. the limit is so low on the card, one meal and one fill up and it'd be maxed until the holds came off. The card is handy... Every Thursday morning I login to both accounts, get the balance, and then pay the credit card. Then the 4th week I leave it, let it cycle to a bill, then pay the full bill off. I hope in the end this will start having a positive effect on our credit.
