The Blog Crawl

When nothing much is happening in my life, I do the blog crawl. I've got a list of blogs I visit - folks I have come to know through their blogs, their IF challenges, and right now a lot of them are pregnant. It's so very cool - and in my newsgroup (alt.infertility.primary) I've watched and lurked while one and then another and then another "graduate" to the next stage. I read about their scans, and how big they are getting - and it's hopeful. It's a funny thing - I feel sad sometimes, just at the instant I hear someone is pregnant, and then I feel hopeful that maybe, just maybe, I might be next. And I love seeing them post pics of their baby bumps!

So, I am still taking the naturopath stuff. Ugh. The taste of the liquid stuff does NOT get any better - and each morning and evening you'll hear a gagging noise in the kitchen as I swallow my spoonful and follow it up with four or five shots of yoghurt to soothe my burning throat and take away the taste. Even hubby says yuck as he can smell it! Haven't noticed any major changes as yet, though I am feeling a wee bit more energetic, though we had a late night last week at a work function, and I definately don't get over hangovers the way I used to when I was young!

In other news, Jack is great. He is sleeping through the night (although I do get a cold wet lab nose on my face when he tries to get up on the bed in the wee small hours!). Katie is lovely as always but embarrassed me at the park the other day by going nuts and barking at a man in a hat. Note to self - wear a hat around the house in the evenings so she gets used to it. It's been pretty cold so the cats are sneaking back inside - though our big cat, Dream, does NOT like Jack and he has been the victim of several swipes for just sitting somewhere! Hubby is still running lots and has a couple of half marathons coming up. Sorry, but you just could not get me outside in this cold weather wearing shorts and a singlet. Rent me a treadmill though, and I'll be as happy as Larry - whoever he was.

Oh and for my Kiwi audience, and you read it here first: Team NZ, now the winner of the Louis Vuitton Cup and with the right to challenge Alinghi from Switzerland for the America's Cup, will win. I am picking a final score of 5-2, so watch this space!

Finally, in the "oh my gosh what a nice thing to do" category, one of my workmates (she has a gorgeous wee girl, and last year when I was doing my IVF we were trying to get preggers together) told me that she has nominated me for a competition run by a radio station - $10k in cash and lots of baby goodies for a pregnant, or trying to get pregnant mother. She thinks it's positive thinking - I just thought hmmm...that could pay for another IVF! It's a lovely thing to do, even if I don't win (and if I do, I promise to slip her some of the nappies!)

Paula--
Hi there! I had left you on my "favorites" list but had just about given up on seeing any more posting.... but was wondering from time to time how you were doing! The contest sounds exciting-- I hope you win! And are you noticing anything from the potions yet?

I am glad that you got good news from meeting with the Dr. and Jack is adorable! I don't mind that you have taken a break from posting-- I check in and read much less now than when I started blogging as I find that it can take over if I let it. But it's nice to hear from you and know you are well.
