I called Ci.gna again yesterday because they can’t seem to repeat the correct things about my order two times in a row resulting in a different error every time they mail me meds or needles. That is five times now. Geez. One of these days maybe…one can hope. Weight gain and eating has slowed down to half of what it was before or more, probably because I am on half the progesterone and out of the first trimester. I got a progesterone draw today so hoping I can remain on this dose, but armed with my super strength progesterone in case I go back up to four shots a week (then it will only be two like now-yeah!) Also, dh and I just finished our ten days of orals that we go on every 8 weeks of the pregnancy per Dr. Toth. I am amazed at how well the Syn.tol is working at keeping any yeast at bay-for the “small” price of $70 for 180 pills-yikes!
On to fun topics, Dh and I had a little getaway last week to Vegas. It is funny, I would NEVER choose Vegas given the option, but I always have a good time. Dh had to go there for work and so I tagged along. We had an amazing hotel, oh my gosh (Ar.ia in the new City Cen.ter-paid for by his work)! A remote control worked the tv, lighting, do not disturb sign, curtains…it was crazy. I enjoyed days by the pool while dh was at his conference during the day for two days plus we had the whole day the day we got in to bum around. Dh did want to play some blackjack, and so we were able to find a few good alternatives to dark and smoky casinos. We especially enjoyed Harrah’s outside where the dj was good and we could sing along and enjoy the 75 degree weather (at night). Perfect. And we saw “O” which is absolutely incredible. It is the Cirque d’ Solei water show and it featured 9 former Olympians (divers, synchronized swimmers, and gymnasts). It was right up my alley (I don’t get into the other shows as much) and dh enjoyed it as well. And there was plenty of good food to be had the whole trip-I have a weak spot for Smit.h and Wolens.ky’s and envy those of you that live in Chicago. We don’t have one here, not that I could afford it more often! I wish I had pictures other than the hotel (the remote control is on the left side table), lol, but I didn’t take my camera around much and I have none of dh and I :(
It was also nice that Charlie did so well with my in laws, that went a long way toward us relaxing; they kept him on schedule and he slept great, which is probably why they were amazed at such a good boy he was. Sleep is imperative for that! They live 3 hrs away and I could tell they had a whole new bond when we got back so that was great too. Dh and I needed some time for just us. It was only the 2nd time we have ever left him for more than a date night. The first was only about 30 hrs (a quick getaway to a nearby bed and breakfast).
Speaking of Charlie, I know I rarely talk about him here, but that guys just melts my heart daily. He language is growing, but it is still the things he says wrong that I love so much, like “wiwi” for kiwi now and “wawa” for water. He gives tight hugs and pats our backs and comes up for random leg hugs or arm pats before running off to play with his trucks. His summer sitter is a friend of mine (speech path with the summer off-I have the best sitters!) and she has a 2 ½ year old daughter. She led him all over the house yesterday by the hand and it was cracking me up seeing him be her willing follower. I need to post a video or two of that man in action. He does keep me humble though! The other day we hit the library for the first time by our house and he saw a huge stuffed dog. He ran over, mounted it, and started “vigorously” riding it screaming “go horsie go” and other things I couldn’t make out. Let’s just say we had all eyes on us! He is definitely full of personality.:) Here is a pic of another friends' daughter and him cheesing it up!
