Man, I'd better be pregnant! Otherwise I have no excuse at all for being so tired. I napped Saturday afternoon, then fell asleep at 8:30 - 9:00 Saturday night and I didn't wake up until 5:30 Sunday morning. I was ready for a nap again at 10:30am, but had people coming over so thought it was best to clean instead. And I was back in bed by 9:30 last night.

Of course, I could be getting ready to go have the blood drawn to find out, but instead I sit here sipping a decaf, reading blogs. I still have the dogs to walk too.

Yes, I said dogs. Sasha came to live with us Saturday afternoon. The dogs are still getting used to each other, so are separated for now. Chet just wants to play, and I think Sasha's a bit more 'mature' than that, so he's bugging her a bit.

Here she is in the kitchen (aka disaster zone #1):



And here's Chet hanging around outside the kitchen, keeping a close watch on things:



Sadly, he is also showing off what the vet so graciously called 'his winter weight'. He is currently at 92lbs! It would appear that me slowing down over the past few weeks was compounded by making it up to him with treats. We're going to have to do a lot more work to get his hourglass figure back. He also has a small lump that needs to be removed from the top of his mouth. As getting your fingers into his mouth at the vet's is always a challenge, the doc isn't sure what exactly it is. He's did manage to get a little feel of it with the help of some treats, and thinks it might just be a wart. Poor dude!

Oh, and the cat has been hilarious with the two dogs. You could almost see the eye roll as she marched into the room and directly between the two of them. After she freaked out so badly when we got Chet, it was nice to see her trot right over Sasha's bed, with Sasha still sleeping in it. No hissing or spitting to be heard!

I've now managed to burn 3 pieces of toast (mad skills in the kitchen!) which is clearly a sign to get my butt in gear.
Who does she think she is?

awww, the dogs are so great -- they're both beautiful!! I guess I thought Chet was bigger than that, but it can be hard to get perspective with pictures. we've had our dogs on a restricted diet since about 1.5 years because Guapo hords the food. I think he's probably about 110 or so now.

good luck on your test. I'll be thinking of you!

Heh, he is gigantor of the huskies though, breed standard is 45-60lbs!

110! How the heck do you walk them? Or do they not pull? Does Ralph get to bike with them?

huh, I never would have guessed the breed standard was that small for huskies. I'm thinking I'm just used to our big piggies.

oh, and they have pinch collars. we used to have a trainer that came every week and the dogs were really good back then, but we never did get to leash walking. then we got preggers and it's been chaos ever since. they do go on a walk every morning with Ralph and they absolutely love it. he lets them off leash up on the hill and they get to just forage.

Thanks so much. Now I just have to make this one stick!

You know, as soon as I heard the number I went to the IVF community archive to see what your beta was *g* - you were tested on DPO 14 though weren't you?. Guess I'll find out on the 24th!!!!

How long will you have the new dog? Glad the cat is coping so well. Our Josie got very bent out of shape when we were dog-sitting Daisy and it made me a nervous wreck!

Ceebee was a mess with Chet, it took months. I don't know if her vision is going and she thought she was seeing double, or if she's just given up. I'm not brave enough to try to bring another cat in tho.

Given that she's a cat, more than likely she just couldn't be bothered. :-)

Not stalking per se, but I remembered you were due for your beta this week and didn't see anything on making_babies, so I thought I'd drop by :P
And... wow... that is some beta! My most sincere congratulations! YAAAAY!!! That is wonderful, wonderful news! It really gives me hope in facing my own challenge, knowing that every now and again there is success for those who deserve it the most *hugs*

Hi! Thanks for dropping by. I figured the mood wasn't really right over at FI at the moment, so I just asked one of the mods to quietly move my profile to the expecting list. Thanks for your enthusiasm and checking up on me.

I haven't seen a recent post from you, but I am glad to hear you still have hope, this process can certainly drain you of that, and a lot more.

Good luck later this summer, I'll be looking for your posts. *hugs*

BTW - Dr. Min did my retrieval and my transfer, he's two for two with me the only person I know IRL *g*

Yes, I know of at least one other recent "grad" that have yet to announce their success for the same reason... We're hanging in, as there isn't much to do until we go for our official consult, which will likely be in the late summer. I was poking around the internet and discovered that an extension of OHIP IVF coverage has been recommended for patients with severe MFI, which is extremely exciting news. The cost of the procdure is so overwhelming, I'm really not sure when we'll be able to go ahead :S
In any case, I'm very happy to hear you had a good experience with Dr. Min - I hope he's able to repeat this success when we get to that point!!!
