IVF Consult and Start Cycle Day

Well ladies and we go! My meds are ordered and will be here tomorrow. I start taking them on 12/30. I go back on 1/2 for the first look at my ovaries to see how they are growing. I will be closely monitored and I won't know when I will be going back. I have appointments scheduled every day from 1/2 to 1/7. I won't need them all obviously...but just incase I do, I have the times I need to be able to take a half day at school.

I know I will be on Follistim, Monapar, Ganarelix and Ovadrel. I will be shooting up twice daily. Now don't you guys be to jealous...and no I will not share!

I'm excited and scared and then excited again. Here is the basic idea of what will happen in the next couple weeks. I will shoot up with drugs, again I'm not sharing. They will grow as many eggs as they can get me to grow. Once the eggs are mature they will extract the eggs from my ovaries. They will put them together with Jeffrey's little dudes and fertilize my eggs by hand. (I think his little dudes haven't been asking for directions to the!) They will let the eggs grow in the dish and multiply. After 5 or 6 days they will pick the strongest ones (2 or 3) and put them back. We then wait and HOPE that they attach to my uterus. I can then become pregnant...we hope!

So say your prayers and help us hope that this is the last step to help us complete our family!

Christmas Program Season

Well Jeffrey and I got all of our blood work done for our IVF cycle, on Monday thanks to our Health Department. They did it all and saved us a trip to Indy.  We will start getting my meds in order and everything will start coming together soon.

It is time for Christmas Concerts and Christmas Programs. We had ours last night and the Kindergarten kids were adorable! I love my job!! Jeffrey has a concert tomorrow and has his junior high concert next week. He has also started musical practice. Needless to say I don't see Jeffrey much during the week anymore.

Christmas is 2 weeks away. I can't wait to go home and see my family. I miss them more and more. It will be so much fun to be in a crowded house with everyone talking and no place to sit. Just to be surrounded with all of my aunts, uncles, cousins, close friends, and my family.

Holy crap batman!!

Well we had a phone consult with my doctor this morning. Jeffrey and I sat and listened to what she had to say. She is very sweet and doesn't sugar coat anything for us. She gave us all the info my brain could process and we were shocked. She wants to start our IVF cycle this month!!! I mean like I go in for my first appointment December 26th! Yeah crazy! She is so great and I'm so excited that she is willing to do it this way.

Needless to say I don't know what to think...I'm excited and scared. Nervous yet ready to get going.

Even though Jeffrey's swimmers are strong they are going to aid the process. They are also going to let them get to the blastocyst phase (Day 5) and then they will put them back and we can just hope and pray they attach.

We will enjoy this Christmas season with a renewed sense of hope. Knowing full well that my doctor is on the fast track to knock us up!

Our IUI Journey is taking some turns....

Well its been wild this past weekend. We had Thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws and it was absolutely delish!!! They had SO much food!! Then we were part of the crazy people and went shopping! We got a lot of great stuff and we didn't run into one rude person!! People are so nice down here. I even struck up conversations with people. Weird for me...I know.

Well we also found out that our last IUI wasn't successful either. I took this one harder than when I miscarried. I don't know why its just I had so much hope for this one to work and when it didn't I was miserable. I was thinking why me. Have all my prayers just been whispered into the wind? Why should I keep thinking that things will go right for me and then realize they usually never do. Not for me. I was so mad at my belief/faith I refused to go to church Sunday. Yes, I was that angry. I couldn't comprehend why this was happening to me. I then chatted with my TT girls, Jeffrey, and my other half, Adam. It was hard for me to admit that I felt like a failure. The guilt I feel is horrible!!! I was a couch potato for two days. But talking it out helped. I still have some built up anger and I know Jeffrey has paid for it and I feel so bad.

I have also been scarce on FB...for a reason. No offense to anyone so please don't take this the wrong way. I can't really handle all my friends and there baby posts. I go through phases and right now it hurts and I can't handle it. So it is safer for me to just stay away. I do pop on every once an a while. It is me...thats all and that is how I will deal with my feelings right now.

So here we are...I went to Indy today to get my baseline for our next IUI. Well we get on with the ultrasound and there is a HUGE black spot in my right ovary. Yep...some of you guessed it. I have a 23mm cyst hiding in there. So no IUI this month. I will be on BC for this month to get rid of that cute little rock. Then as I bargained with Jeffrey after the new year we are moving on to IVF or Invitro fertilization. I will be on BC this month and in January. We will then start our road to IVF in February. This road will be a hard one. Its pretty scary and i'm really nervous about it, but I'm lucky I know a few people that have successfully gone through it. So if I have questions I know who to go to.

Please lets hope and pray that this is that last thing we will have to do to complete our family. We will need all the extra thoughts and prayers the next couple months. I say it once we go!

Woot! UPDATE!!!

Hey all!! Here we go....

Ankle is better it turns out I have tibular tendonitis. I had to do a month of PT, and I have to wear gym shoes all the time with the in-soles they gave me. Just FYI...gym shoes don't go to well with my dress clothes...yet I digress.... the fertility side of things. It has been a ride for sure this round. Well i didn't really start, I did however have some spotting. She counted it. So I started my shots on 11/02. It is now 11/13. So yeah 11 days on shots. I have one follicle at 18 and one at 13. SO what this means is I will take my last shot of follistim tonight. I will take my trigger shot at 8pm tomorrow. So that mean our IUI is scheduled for Saturday!

Lets hope that this one is it! I'm hopeful so please please please plenty of prayers and thoughts Saturday morning!!!!!

Ankle and Indy and UPDATE

Well I have done it...I have screwed up my ankle! Yep yesterday I had an x-ray done and next Wednesday (10/2/13) I have to get an MRI of it to check out the ligaments and such. I have always had flat feet and now my right foot is turning in a lot more than normal. So I'm hoping it isn't structural! eeeek!!!!

On the fertility side of things I talked to my doctor today. She is faxing over some prometrium to get me started again. Then I will be starting follistim for the whole time. She did say this, "I need to tell you that doing this (follistim) will increase your chances for multiples. *pause* BUT i'm sure you and Jeff are ready for it." How lucky I am to be with a doctor that cares about my current situation and cares enough to call me personally and talk about things. She also asked if we wanted to switch to Carle Clinic in Champaign. I told her the drive is just the same (time wise) and that i'm very comfortable with her and her staff at the Indy location. She is very sweet and so upbeat. We are so blessed to have her and Nurse Shelley in our lives.

In other news from this weekend to the end of October we have band competitions! WOOOO!!! GO MARCHING EAGLES! Ahhhh...yes...The life of a band nerd...

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Food for thought....

Well I have been thinking about this and it has bothered me about myself. OK here we go.....

 I'm absolutely HORRIBLE about staying in touch with people if they are not around me on a daily basis. Even my immediate family! I don't know what it is. I feel awful when I realize that I have gone months sometimes without talking to them. Its not only just them! If you aren't in the forefront of my mind right now the chance of me texting you on a whim is SUPER slim.

I don't mean to offend anyone. It is nothing personal...I'm just a person that is pretty one-tracked most of the time. I'm a scatter brain and I forget things and now apparently people...

I'm SO consumed with marching band/colorguard and school that if I get any free time i'm a vegetable on the couch. This time of year is very busy and I have a million thoughts running through my head. "Change this set...don't forget to say that...get uniforms re-hemmed...etc" UGH!! So honestly if you are offended that I haven't tried to get in touch with you lately, I'm really really sorry. I want to get better, but I'm not one to sit and talk on the phone (unless its my parents).

So moral of the story is...shoot me a text, tweet, or FB message. I will eventually see it and know there is more people/things going on OTHER than marching band. Until then...or November....

Job, School, Band, COLORGUARD

Well a lot has changed in the last 3 weeks since I last posted. Well one huge thing...

I GOT A FULL TIME JOB!!!!! I'm a teachers aide for Jasper Unit #1! I will be teaching Title Math in the morning and I will be a one on one aide to a child in the afternoon. I'm so excited!! This means one HUGE thing...INSURANCE!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so pumped!! My insurance kicks in September 1st. So you can guess we will start going back to Indy after that. I'm excited!!! It makes me happy to know that we won't have to pay out of our pocket. We will be getting some assistance and it makes me finally able to relax! Because of the PCOS I was not able to acquire insurance  one my own because it is a "pre-existing condition". Yep!! You heard it right. I'm so happy to finally get into group insurance and they can't tell me no. Finally, I will be told yes!

Also, band will get into full swing soon. This week is the first full week of band and we have our first outing on Friday for our media night! I'm pretty pumped and I hope my girls are too! We have made a lot of progress. I feel like I have been hard on them but they have made so much progress since band camp it is unbelievable! These girls are amazing and so is my assistant miss Kylee! I wouldn't be at the place I'm at if I didn't have her help! I also can't wait that in less than a month we will be out in full uniform with full make-up and hair. Which I will need to give credit to my guard mom Becky!! Here we go people...its officially Marching Band season and the Newton Marching Eagle colorguard is a force to be reckoned with!!!

July is almost over...ALREADY?

Well here we are and its almost the end of July! I'm still here at SWC and will be done in 3 days. I hate the fact it flies by so dang fast!!! This year was my 10th summer here. I was a camper in 2003 and now I'm on Admin staff. The time here sure flies by thats for sure. This camp has changed me as a person and has given me a lot.

"This one time at band camp...." Well folks no band camp is EVER like the one in American Pie. Sorry to disappoint you. SWC....Its more than just a band camp. There is a fraternal bond here that can't be re-created anywhere else. Our staff is top notch! We have a lot to offer our students. There is also a special bond here with our staff. We put in a lot of long hours and yet at the end of the day we still find time to chit chat and laugh until our stomachs hurt. I have seen a lot of relationships formed here. A couple have turned into marriages, others are friendships with bonds that can never be broken. I have met a lot of people here that I would consider my very close friends. I also met my other half here (and no it is NOT Jeffrey). He and I bonded pretty quickly and it blossomed into a friendship I have never had before. He knows me better than I know myself sometimes and its scary. ;) But, I know, if I didn't have him in my life I wouldn't feel whole, a part of me would be missing. It is truly hard to explain or put into words.

Even though the staff only sees each other once a year, here at camp, when we are together it is like we haven't missed a beat. It is kind of nice actually to have this...they have become my second family.

Well no news on the baby front from me. We did try again in June and it didn't take. So since I have been here at EIU all July we weren't going to try. So we wait until Aug to see what will come of my future. I will FINALLY have insurance and these visits will become cheaper and I won't have to worry/feel bad about our situation. Its pretty expensive for people without insurance. I could estimate we spend $2000 a treatment. Thats the procedure/medicine/gas to and from Indy/ and meals.

Bring on marching season...

....Where has the time gone....

I know most of you have been missing my updates. Well sorry!!! I know I have said I was going to document our journey. Well I know I have up to this point. My worry is when I do get pregnant you all will figure it out and I don't know if I want that. I will update from time to time. I can tell you that I'm going back in June for IUI number 3. We won't be giving up so don't think that is what is happening. Those that I talk to more on a consistant basis you know that you can message me.

In July I will be at EIU with SWC. For all of you non--band nerds its when I work band camps for three weeks.

In Aug marching band really takes off and doesn't stop until the end of October.

Sorry everyone if you are disappointed, but when our miracle does happen I want to be in control of telling folks when and how I want to.  :)

No April Fools...

IUI DAY!!!!! Omg.....I know you all have been waiting...

So we got up at the butt crack of dawn...fueled up..and hit the road. The drive to Indy went as usual....uneventful. We got to Indy and Jeffrey went in. After that we had an hour to kill! I convinced him to go to Mejier and we walked around and all of a sudden I start to feel cramps. I thought nothing of it especially because of how much we ate yesterday. It was different.... It didn't get any better either. So I tried to go to the bathroom and that didn't help. Then it dawned on me..."Oh guess what stupid, you may actually be ovulating!!" Some of you need to realize that I'm experiencing (what a normal women feels monthly) these things/feelings for for first time. My body is being forced, thanks to meds, to actually work like it should. So this round of the IUI was actually more painful. I'm really REALLY uncomfortable. I feel like a stuffed sausage right now. I'm having very bad cramps...hopefully this is a good thing.

ANYWAY this Saturday I will need to get labs done to check my progesterone levels. They will then decide if I will need to take progesterone supplements. SO here we go ladies and gents...round two...

Now the 2 week wait begins....

Passing over Easter

Well we were off to Indy bright and early this morning. On our day off none the less :P. These appointments are working out on our days off or snow days...quite convient if you ask me.

Well we went into the appointment kind of optimistic. I had three follicles this time. I only had one last time and I thought that was awesome. Three was great! Well she starts the ultra sound and I saw not three follicles...but...FOUR!!! I have FOUR!!! For them to be considered mature they need to measure at 18 or higher. Well I had 18, 14, 13, and a 12! SOOOOOO.....I will do one more day of Follistim at 100 and then I will do the Ovadrel (HSG) Shot tomorrow night at 9:45pm and we will do the IUI on Monday! Round two is coming to a close and my body is actually reacting correcting to the medicine and shots. HOW COOL!!!! **Happy Dance**

Well after our appointment in Indy we went to pick up the Jeep at the dealership since it was leaking anti-freeze. It wasn't done yet so we started thinking that WHEN I do get pregnant we will probably trade in my Avenger. I will most likely want an SUV of some kind. So we test drove a Dodge Durango Citadel and a Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Citadel is AWESOME and would most likely be the one in the running. The Grand Cherokee was nice but I liked the Citadel better! To bad the one we test drove costs about half the value of our house! :) Oh well we were just looking, right? ;P

Easter Sunday and my eggs?!?!

Hello fellow readers/followers/stalkers!!! I'm back!! What a crazy couple weeks. NCHS did their musical The Music Man this past weekend and let me tell you if you didn't see it you missed out....BIG TIME. Not that I'm biased or anything but my husband, the kids, the assistant directors, volunteers, pit members, and parents seriously ROCKED OUT! This was the best musical they have done in a long time!!! Even with finding out that one of the adult males couldn't do the show because of a death in the family my hubby learned his song parts/lines and was not only the director but a member of the cast also. I'm a proud wifey!!! Again...not biased at all....

Well we got an awesome snow storm that made us a nervous wreck. Oh yeah we had an appt. today in Indy. It took us almost 4 hours to get there last night. Thank God school was canceled today. We got a hotel room and stayed the night. It was kind of nice to relax especially after the week we just had.

Yep quite awful.....this is I-465 near Indy. A main interstate and it wasn't clear at all! Good thing we took the jeep we had it in 4 wheel drive.

This was at a rest stop outside of Indy. :)

So anyway we get to the office they do the ultrasound and guess what?!?! Well you will have to wait...

So when we went last time I had only one follicle from my left ovary and he (yes, I gave it a gender...don't judge me!) grew to a 22! 

OK you have waited long enough. I have (drum roll please) .... 3 follicles this time!! Two in the right ovary and one in the left. 13, 10, and 8! For the follicles to be mature they need to be at 18 or higher. Sooooooooooooooo I will be uping my follistim to 100 and I am going back on Good Friday. Our next IUI maybe on Sunday...Easter Sunday of all days. Is this fate?? Only the big guy upstairs knows...

so...until next time my friends....

Monday, March 18, 2013

What will the Easter Bunny be bringing me this year?

Well we headed over to Indy this morning and well i'm in a whirlwind again....this is good!!

I'm on Day 3 of my cycle now. So today I start Letrozole for 5 days. Just like we did last time. This is where it changes. :D On Day 7 (Friday) I take the last of my Letrozole and I start Follistim shots at 75, also. I take the Follistim at 75 Saturday and Sunday. We then head BACK to Indy next Monday to get a peak at my ovaries to see if we have any follicles ready and we will go from there.

Ok...Quiz time....Do you guys know what this means? We will be attempting ANOTHER IUI BY EASTER!!!!!! Holy poop sticks Batman!

On another note this weekend is Musical weekend so from Thursday to Sunday I will be totally unavailable. I will be at Newton Community High School supporting my husband and all of his talented kids! I'm lucky to be up in the light box helping! I wore a lot of different hats for this musical and I'm OK with it. I got to help with building/painting sets, be the assistant head light, being the DW (Directors Wife), choreograph the baton and flag for the finale, and help with hair! It has been fun and I enjoy working with the kids. It is amazing what Jeffrey and the other adults helping put together! I'm one proud wifey!!!

Also my PARENTS and my little (but taller than me) sister is also coming to see the musical! How cool is that? They are driving all the way from the Chicago no pressure kids.... ;)

Alright y'all....ROUND TWO.....Here we go again....

Sunday, March 17, 2013


Well if you saw on FB Friday it was my birthday...and the day I had to test to see if the IUI worked. Well it obviously didn't and I was very obviously upset. My birthday started out pretty crappy. I got through my morning and low and behold a delivery came to school. Jeffrey came through...
Yeah I know he was pretty sweet to do that...and it made himself look good too ;). I married a very smart man! 

The part that got to me the most wasn't the fact it didn't work. It was just disappointment. Thats what hurts the most. The guilt that I carry with me that this isn't Jeffrey's issue its MY ISSUE. I'm the problem. I know call me crazy or whatever you want to...but that is how I think people. The preist wasn't kidding when he said ......"For better or for worse" either...

So after school (we had a half day) I went out to lunch with girls from work and it was nice. I laughed, got to talk (without crying) about normal things and actually enjoyed myself. I hope they know how much that meant. We then went to our teacher inservice. I won't bore you with all the exciting details of that inservice. Later that night we went to a birthday party for a close family friend. Man I'm glad I did because it brought me out of that funk. I started to think "...ok Finley (yes I call myself that in my head...DEAL WITH IT...shesh!!) didn't work....we do it again...your parents didn't raise a quitter". 

So Friday night and Saturday morning I felt like crap, physically not mentally. Yesterday AF showed her ugly face. Yep thats right I started on my own and the day it was supposed to start. My body actually responded to how and when it was supposed too! I'm almost normal!! Although I don't like how she makes me feel...stupid AF.....mmmmmm chocolate.......


ROUND TWO...DING DING DING...Starting tomorrow we are off to INDY again....

Friday, March 1, 2013


Well we did was the day we did the IUI...OMG!!!!

OK sorry I will calm down. I was up at 3:45am and Jeffrey was up at 4am. We were on the road by 4:45. Somehow I had a renewed sense of hope because when we left it was snowing. It was a big flake pretty snow. I just had a good feeling about today. Once we got there and Jeffrey came out from the office we had an hour to kill basically. We went to this little restaurant to have breakfast. We went to Meijer to kill some more time and I got a new book and Jeffrey picked up "Pitch Perfect". Then back to the office and it was finally my turn....

I was actually quite surprised. It was a tad uncomfortable. Almost as uncomfortable as a yearly girly exam...yet at least after that you jump down off the table and you go get on with your life. Not today...after the IUI I had to lay down for 10 - 15 minutes. Then we got our things and we headed for home.

I felt very crampy, uncomfortable, and bloated. I still feel that way honestly. I put the car seat as far back as possible and just laid down. I looked up out the window and texted people as Jeffrey drove.

So here we are...I have my little set up on the couch with my stuff and I'm laying here. Jeffrey asks why I'm getting up every time I do. Lets hope and pray that I don't lose my mind in the next two weeks.

The 2WW, the day I need to test, is my birthday. March 15th...Now it will be a good birthday or a poopy birthday. Either way I need to call the office and tell them the results. And dont think that I will spill the results early either good or bad. You all are crazy! That secret will stay with Jeffrey and I.

Wacky Wednesday

Today is the day I have been waiting for...

We got up at 4am and got ready...we headed out at 4:45am for Indy. My appointment was at 8:30am their time (7:30am out time). We got to the doctor, I gave my blood, and we headed back to the ultra sound room. She started it and I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. Watching her find the one follicle and measure it...I can't explain how excited I was when I saw 22mm. It grew 7mm in two days, thanks to follistim!!!

After I saw that and the technician said it was at 22mm and the lining was looking really good I felt a renewed sense of hope. We are actually doing this. We are going to attempt to have an IUI....FINALLY!!!! We have gotten farther in the past 3 weeks then I have in 4 years with Schultise. He didn't care about me. He didn't treat my situation, he didn't treat me as a person.


This doctor in Indy is treating me like a person, crazy I know! I know of another couple facing the same troubles as Jeffrey and I. Her and her husband also went to Schultise and she also has PCOS like me. Although her and I are going down a different path...but we are aimed at the same goal, an IUI, or a baby to call our own. Now that is a doctor that is personalizing every situation different.

SO....Jeffrey and I will be heading back to Indy on Friday. Jeffrey needs to be there at 8:30am to do his thing and my appointment for the IUI is near 10am. We will drive home that day and I will be on bedrest (per Dr. Jeffrey) for the rest of the weekend.

This is the beginning of OUR journey....You all are in for a wild ride....hold onto you hats....keep your hands and feet inside the vehicle....we are FINALLY on track for Baby Finley!!!

Just another manic Monday...

So here we go again....I wish I had more exciting new for you my fellow readers but alas I do not....try and follow...

Well my wonderful in-laws drove with me today to Indy so I wouldn't have to go by myself. They ended up driving which was awesome and they took me out to lunch (which they didn't have to do) and it was a neat experience. This restaurant was so cool! It just like a home cooked meal. I really appreciate them taking the day off to take me to my appointment.

We get there I give my blood sample again. Then I head back to the ultra sound room. I was getting excited because the little black spots I saw were bigger! (Those little black spots were follicles the little guys that turn into eggs, btw.) The one they are watching was 11mm on Friday. It was 15mm today. I am once again upping my dosage of follistim to 100 and hoping that by Wednesday that they are at 18mm so by Friday we will be able to do the IUI.

Not the greatest news BUT it is progress...the most progress we have made in 4 years. Although I am completely exhausted and all this driving back and forth to Indy is really wearing me out already.....

Friday, February 22, 2013


We went to Indy last night after school to avoid the snow/ice/sleet mess that came through. After we passed Terre Haute we were in the clear. We got to the hotel, checked in, dropped our bags off, and walked across the parking lot to Max & Erma's to get a bite to eat. We were waiting to get seated and it cut lose! Sleet and Ice...we beat the storm by 20 minutes!!! Lucky us!!

Well we go to the doctor today to see if my eggs we ready and mature enough to go ahead with the IUI. They were not. :( I had two of them that were close but not big enough. But that is OK when I was charting my cycle before all the crazy fertility stuff I usually ovulated on or near day 20. So I wasn't really surprised to find out they weren't ready on day 11. So I will be taking my dose of Follistim back up to what it was and I will be going back on Monday morning to get the lab work done and ultrasound again. Hopefully by then my eggs will be mature enough to do the IUI on Wednesday.

That is all for now my friends....Until next time...or...Monday! :)

Thank you Kim for making the Cheese-It commercial reference for the "Not mature enough" saying...kinda made my day.... :)

Tuesday, February 19, 2013


Let me tell you HOW NICE it is that my doctor personally called me to ask if I had any questions about the shots I have to give myself AND to tell me that she wanted me to dial down my dosage since I'm senstive to it and she didn't want me producing 10 or more eggs for the IUI...

WOW!!! I am so thankful for her. She is like a God send! How cool is that for her to check up on me. Maybe this is meant to be...something good will happen soon...This doctor is going to make it happen!

Sunday, February 17, 2013 brother got married over the weekend...

It was great!! I really couldn't believe it she is the best and I'm so happy she is finally officially family and I have another sister! My brother is one very lucky man!!

Our Fertility Journey starts today....

Here we go people....Jeffrey and I got up at 4:30am to head to Carmel, IN (North of Indy). We went to see a fertility specialist. I know a big step for us. I was sick of spinning my wheels with a doctor who didn't care about me. Who just spouted information and left the room. I'm now with a doctor who actually sat with us to meet us and go over EVERYTHING. Each step we will take and what we need to do in each of those steps. 

Basically, we went today to just meet her and talk to her about our steps that we need to take. Well she went farther than that!! She took blood for blood work, did an ultrasound of my girly bits, and we are on track for an IUI this month. 

I got a shot in my butt to bring on a period. Then when it starts I call the office to set everything up. On Day 3 of my cycle I will be taking Letrozole from days 3 - 7 on days 8 - 10 I will give myself a shot once a day of Follistim. Then on day 11 I will get one shot of Overdrel and I will go into the doctor to check on my eggs to see how they are doing. Then we go in a few days later. Jeffrey will do his thing and they will then do the IUI in the office. 

The chances of the IUI taking this month are ok but possibly unlikely. Would I love for it to happen the first time and we won't have to do it again...HECK YES! But I will take what I can get. I'm just so overly excited that we are finally on the right track and we have a doctor that actually cares about us and isn't after money alone. 

I'm also on a special diet (KINDA) I'm no/low carb and 1200 calories a day. I'm off Mt. Dew. I'm back on Metformin and these next few months will be a whirlwind! Hold on to you seats....We are finally on track for Baby Finley!!
