An unconventional journey through assisted reproductive technology (and hopefully pregnancy and parenthood.)

About Me

My photo
They say 30's are the new 20's. My wife and I have been together for over a decade now. We both work in the fast paced world of academia. Our state (and recently all others across the country) have finally allowed all marriage so we made that happen October 2014.

I'm a pretty big nerd, I'll be the first to admit. I love video games (yes, as a girl and yes, at my age). I have lots of other nerd hobbies and since I was unceremoniously banned from RuneScape, I've been playing Civilization and Skyrim. My real first nerd love is Magic the Gathering. 10,000 cards and growing, but that's an expensive hobby when you have two babies.

I have other grown-up interests too, especially reading. I like reading so much I have 3 Kindles and I also used to be a martial artist (one belt away from black belt. I'll finish someday.)

But now I've got twins and I have a feeling a lot of those hobbies are going to change.

Upcoming Changes

I realize my updates have been far and few in between, but that's the nature of this process. it's a lot of waiting. My period, which was due around the 12th didn't come until the 19th. I called Monday and went for an ultrasound today. To be honest, I don't know what they're even looking for right now but they also checked my FSH and HCG this time in my blood also. I start estradiol tonight and I go back on the 31st.

I also am waiting to hear from the financial coordinator. I hope she calls me tomorrow. I just want to know what we're getting in for, what we have left from the package we paid for (if anything) and most of all I don't want any surprise charges.

Other than that, we've been keeping up with our geocaches and both of us are getting ready to start a new school year. Summer is coming to a close and it's time to go back to work. Now that my lady has graduated she'll be making more money, which is great. My union and district can't even agree on a contract so I have no idea what's going on but I still have a job. And kids are coming Monday.

Speaking of which, if you recall, my school has been undergoing construction. It was supposed to be done on August 18th. But it's not and it's not expected to be done until into September. It's big things that aren't done too, like the MPR and computer network. Typical, and I should have expected it, but it's still an extra stress I wasn't planning for.

To end on a happy note, I recently celebrated my 32rd birthday. A year older, maybe wiser. I don't know, but it was fun celebrating with my friends and family. I got a new laptop, which I desperately needed. My old one was about 7 years old, which is incredibly old for a laptop nowadays. It still had Windows Vista, for crap's sake!

So, if you're still hanging in with this blog, thanks. I can't promise I'll write more often, because it just depends on timing. But I will for sure update any time I go to the doctor, which right now is next Friday.
