I have to say, it was very strange not to be taking my BCPs last night. This will be the first time in a very long time...like years, and years, that I have not taken a birth control pill....other than for a surrogacy related pause. I kept thinking all night, gotta remember to take my pill, and then would have to remind myself, nope, it's all good. Very strange I tell ya. It will be interesting to see how my body does without all the hormones I've been pumping into myself for the last 12 years or so. Let's hope my body does what it's supposed to do and we can get onto the business of baby making!
A few days ago fellow blogger Kelly @ http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/ posted about simple pleasures and favorite things, so although I'm a couple of days late, I figured better late than never. So here they are...my favorite things.

Waking up in the middle of the night only to realize you have another hour of sleep
Ok, so while I love the fact that my OB-Gyn is so wonderful, I do not like that fact that so many other women also think so. I already know he is in high demand when it takes about 2 months to get in for an annual exam, but seriously. The waiting room was full, and with only one person checking people in, the line was at least 3 women deep at any given time. My appointment was at 10, but I didn't get called back until about 10:30. And although I had worked a 13 hour shift the night before, and was going on no sleep, I didn't really mind waiting, because as I said, he is wonderful!
Anyway, it looks like I'll be going off the pill after I finish this pack so we can see if I'm ovulating in preparation for the baby making in a few months. Let's all hope my periods come regularly (the best indication of ovulation), so that we don't have to look at the Clomid option. Yay! It's nice to finally be starting towards the baby making in June!
I'm a transplanted Texan, currently living outside of Charlotte, NC, with my husband, Chad, who was brave enough to take on me and my crazy brood. I am mom to 4 beautiful girls, Jordan, Kayla, Kacie, and Gracyn. We are also grandparents to our first grandchild, Tristian. We have 2 dogs, a boxer named Luke, and bullmastiff named Layla, and 3 cats, . I have had the privilage of bringing 3 additional children into the world through gestational surrogacy(their bun, my oven), and am working on journey #4. I am thrilled that I have been able to play a part in something so wonderful. I'm also a nurse in high risk OB Yes, I know it's chaos, but oh well, this is my life, and I wouldn't change it for the world!
