This and That Friday

I have been vacant this week, but for good reasons, nothing bad.

DH was out of town for work and I had a friend come visit me to keep me company, keep me sane, and (to be honest) help me the heck out.  The days of DH being gone and me just "handling it" are o-v-e-r.  I'm too big, too tired, and too big and tired to go it alone.

So, my wonderful friend K, came all the way from Y-town, Ohio to spend a few days, share a bunch of laughs, and make a freezer full of meals to keep us going on days when it's all just too much.  This is incredibly kind of her, as she works a job where when she does not work, she does not get paid.  Also, she is struggling with IF herself, and will be going down the path of donor eggs starting this summer. I know it was not easy for her to be here, but we talked a lot about it and she knows I am there for her no matter what. She, in turn, is there for me - no matter what.  Our friendship is one of my longest and dearest.

I did go to the OB on Monday, all is well and next visit is my glucose test - blech.

I also saw my specialist for my monthly u/s and the boys are growing great. Almost two pounds each! Back for another u/s in four weeks with him.

Also, I am STILL participating in Scrambled Eggs' March photo challenge. You would be surprised how excited I am to capture each day's photo when you compare it with how much I loathe uploading pictures. I have a post with all pics forthcoming!!

Signing off, I had my maternity pictures done last week and although the proofs will not be ready for another week, my photographer posted a "teaser" photo on her blog and I thought I would share it. For anyone who wants to see it, just click this link!
