I finally got back from vacation on Sunday evening, rested on Monday, and went back to work on Tuesday.  And since I don't work on Fridays I have had a nice light week.  Which is really good because it has helped me relax since coming home.  It is sad that vacation tends to wear a lot of people out me included. 

Some of the highlights from my trip were going on a zipline tour, a zorb ball ride, and a show called Cirque de Chine.

This is a picture of the Zorb ball ride.  You are basically harnessed into the center of this ball and rolled down a long hill.  Doesn't sound like something a normal person would do, but it was pretty fun.

I think what wore me out the most that week was spending it with my mother.  Don't get me wrong, I love my mother very much, but it is difficult for me to spent many consecutive days with no one but her.  It doesn't help that we are both on different medications that affect our hormones.  The main issue we had I think was that she thought my husband and I called each other too much.  We can't help it.  We are madly in love with each other and we are also used to spending all day together since we work at the same place.  We misseed each other very much and talked whenever we got the chance. 

My vacation really did give me a chance to relax before starting my next round of meds.  I really have a positive outlook on this round.  I am really hoping for a BFP, but I will be happy if I even O this month.  Of course it will be sometime next month before I even know if I it happened or not.  Tommorrow is the last day of the provera so AF should come around Monday or Tuesday, although it is Monday 99% of the time.  I time my pills out so it happens this way.  It gives me and hubby the weekend to play if you know what I mean, lol.  So that puts me starting the clomid around next Friday, and having progesterone levels checked around the 4th of November.  My Dr said she would only do 6 rounds of the clomid before referring me to a specialist, but each round is taking aprox. 2 months so this might be a year long process.  If it wasn't for the fact that I have to take the provera it wouldn't take quite as long, but if I finally do ovulate I should start AF on my own and shouldn't need the provera and that would speed things up a little.  Either way I will do whatever it takes.

I am so superstitious that while I was on vacation if someone said something would bring me luck I did it.  That included getting showered in "cave kisses" (water droplets falling fromthe roof of a cave),  rubbing rocks shaped like eggs, and tossing pennies into wishing wells.  I just feel like something is going to change this time for the better so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
