RE appointment...

I had a "NO PERIOD" appointment today at my RE's office. They drew some blood (FAV blood lady) & then popped in a surprise ultrasound(FAV u/s tech). I wish I would have known this because I would have shaved lol. I guess Mr. Wandy doesn't care one way or the other =) So they said I have 20 follicles on my left & 18 follicles on my right. They said my lining was thick-ish. The nurse thinks I either had an anovulatory cycle with no bleeding or I just haven't fallen into a regular cycle since my ER. I got a prescription for Provera & will know later this afternoon if I am supposed to start taking it or not. My nurse said she would like to put me back on BCPs until we are ready to start my next IVF cycle so that I remain regular. I never had any period problems prior to IF...ugh gotta love it.

In happier news, I got an 80 on my test Wednesday B-) I only have 2 more classes, 2 more finals, & 23 days until I graduate!!! Then NCLEX-RN here I come (state boards for nursing) WOOOOOHOOOO!!!

I got myself an interview

Well ladies & gentleman I got my first real legit interview as an RN. No I didn't graduate yet, but I am trying to think ahead. I work for a hospital right now on a cardiac step down unit. Our unit recently got approved to hire some more RNs & CNAs so guess what...I got an interview. This would not be my dream job & deffinitely not my long-term goal but it's a nice start. I would be able to start my career and gain some experience. I will be working toward my goal; MATERNITY NURSE. You guessed it ladies & gentleman I want to be a maternity nurse =) My interview is set up for next Friday morning so keep your fingers crossed for me please!

Random acts of kindness & PG announcement

I have been a really bad blogger lately...SORRY! This is gonna be a 2 for 1 kinda post to make it up to you guys =).

I was working Friday night, me & some of the other girls I work with were sitting around chatting. We were all talking about our plans for Easter. My in-laws don't celebrate Easter (Jewish), My mom's family was doing dinner over an hour away from my house, & I wasn't invited to my grandparent's house because my dad was goin (damn daddy issues). I told the girls I normally make up an Easter basket for my god-daughter but this year I am just really broke because of school (&IVF but i didn't tell them that). Well when I came in to work Saturday night Tara, a respiratory therapist stopped me & said, "I have something in the lounge for you." I thought she was confused, I said, "FOR ME? really?" She proceeded to tell me that she went to WalMart to pick up some last minute Easter stuff for her kiddies and she picked up a basket for me to give to my god-daughter! I was so thankfull & immediately hugged her! What a great, super duper nice thing for one person to do for another person. Random acts of kindness like that restore my faith in the world!!!

Part 2 of my post...I have become really close friends with one of the girls in my nursing class-Sarah. She got married last year in August & lives about an hour away from me. She decided about 2 months ago that she was going to start trying to get pregnant. I was super supportive and excited for her. So guess WHAT?!? She's pregnant. Son of a bitch... She got pregnant on the first freaking try! UGH what a kick in the ovaries. I am very excited and love her dearly but why did she have to get pregnant first?? I am trying to be the nice friend & I congratulated her & listened to her talk about it. Hopefully I am not to far behind her and our babies can be best friends lol (Super cheesie, yes I know)
