Yo Yo Yo! An Update and Stuff...

I'm so sorry I left ya'll hanging. I didn't have bloodwork done until late afternoon on Monday, and then didn't get the results until late afternoon yesterday. My hormones are continuing to drop. Albeit, they're being painfully SLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOW about it. But, that compounded with the fact that things are starting to get ugly down there...well, it's over. Or will be soon, anyway.

Thank you ALL for hoping AND for encouraging me to hope when I felt kind of stupid about it. Seriously.

There are a bunch of things in the Zube's future, after discussing our miscarriage situation with the doctor, including but not esclusive to: Progesterone supplements, a baby aspirin a day, a thyroid test, chromosomal testing (maybe, that ones still lingering on our marital discussion table), and much, much more.

There are also some things that I've decided I'll do before we try again which includes, but, naturally, is not exclusive to: acupuncture, NO caffiene, exercise, no more Happy Hour at all, and la, la, la.

Zube Boy has suggested that we ask our friend Zig to be a sperm donor, if it's true that his and my chromosomes aren't working out. Heh. He was kidding. And Zig is NUTZ, yo! So we'd have a fucking crazy kid. And if it's true that your children are worse than you, well then, Zube Boy doesn't deserve that really. Or maybe he does. Who knows. The man's a mystery, I tell ya. Anyway, we're robably not gonna go the sperm donor route.

In OTHER news! I'm an auntie, remember? Miss I and The Englishman and little Alexandria Jade AKA Alex are all doing wonderfully. And? Miss I grills one hell of a steak. Since I can't cook steak FOR SHIT, we'll surely return again and again. Here are some photos:

Miss I, Alex and I (You can probably figger who is who, but in case you're wondering, I'm the one hogging the baby!):


Oh my, how embarrassing! She fell asleep right in the middle of a good joke! YOU GUYS! I thought you told me I was funny!!!


Zube Boy (AKA - The Godfatha) and Zube Girl and Alex. Zube Boy was one of only two men besides Dad to hold her. What is it with boys, eh? Babies, believe it or not, are FAR less fragile than we fear. Anywho...Zube Boy lost his wallet that night. He's convinced that little Alex is a klepto. She's surely got the innocent look down pat. Hee.

Awwwwww- a baby picture! Hubby always calls me in the room when there are babies or monkeys on TV. I'm a sucker for babies and monkeys.

Cute baby. Cute aunt.

You sound a lot more optimistic in this post, and I'm happy that the glimmer of hope has one again emerged. You were right to say that you'll get through things on your own terms, and in your own good time. I think more women need to approach emotional pain that way, myself included.

Even though I'm only starting the journey to getting pregnant, I wanted to say that regular exercise and a small iron/folic acid supplement have made a significant difference in my cycle. My periods are a lot more regular and predictable, and my ovulation time is a lot more obvious, too (more cervical fluid than I know what to do with it!). You obviously have no problem getting pregnant, which is my goal at the moment, but exercise and a few nutritional supplements (if you're not already taking them) can only increase your odds of overcoming your recurring problem.

Best of luck to you, my dear!

Beautiful and gorgeous and perfect of course my dear. You and ZB look so perfect and natural with a baby. You know I'm thinking and thinking and hoping that things will be working out just so. LOVE YOU!!!!

denise said...

Sounds like your specialist had a lot of good idea. Good luck, I know that things are going to work out for you.

Enjoy your steak. It is so easy to grill steak. I can only grill a couple of things but steak is one of 'em.

I think the most amazing thing about you, Zubegirl, is that despite your own issues, you are so genuinely happy for this couple and enjoying their new daughter as much as they are. Not all women could do that if they'd been through the things you have.

My hat's off to you.

Little Alex a klepto? You gotta watch those young ones, they get you with those innocent eyes every time. Start watching the credit card bills, if Toys R Us shows up - its a sure bet it was her.

Plunky said...

Options, options. Gotta love the options. Hope rocks.

How cute is that puddin pie????

LaLa Lisa said...

*lots of hugs* Because you deserve them and are such a strong, kick ass chick. Love the pics. Everyone looks so happy and the little peanut is adorable!! That's right, capture all the peaceful and quiet moments on film while you can. Hehe!

Bonanza Jellybean said...

No more Happy Hour!? Isn't that a bit extreme? I mean, honestly- I know PLENTY of people who have kids BECAUSE of Happy Hour... :)

(Just being totally inappropriate again, but not nearly as bad as on the phone...)

You sound like you are doing a lot better hon. Maybe it's a good idea to change your focus for a bit. :)

lysie6211 said...

BTW - I once gave up booze for year so...it is possible. hehehe

Oooh the sweetness of that last photo! Look how cozy the baby is in Zube Boy's arms?
You are such a cute couple. It just makes me gush.
