Donations for the Philippines

As many of the readers to this blog know, We have a Filipina Nanny. She is more like family to us! I always pick on her and say she is the most spoiled nanny in Kuwait.
Our sweet Mary Ann is from Cebu. 
She was able to get ahold of her family members and most importantly her MOTHER! (Maria)
I was checking my email today and I saw that the KLL (Kuwait Little League) is having a bake sale to raise money for the victims of the typhoon.
I spoke to my husband about all the clothes that we have packed up and ready to send to relatives in America... I asked, "Can we donate them?" He said, "Yes Babe" 
I love that he has such a giving heart! It is hard to find good charities here in Kuwait!
If you can, take advantage of this opportunity!
The holiday season is just around the corner! And maybe there is someone else out there (other then me) who does Winter Cleaning! 
(I LOATH CLUTTER)
If you would like to make a monetary donation, Please visit the Philippine Red Cross.
Salamat

More Menopur

I went to the doctor last night. I got my blood drawn and then a "WANDA" scan! I have 16 eggs! Basically, I have 8 eggs in my Left ovary and 8 in my Right as well. The biggest are 14-15mm. She said that is good for my 8th day! The goal is to get them to 18-20mm. I have a bit further to go. So... Now I have to take 5 menopurs/2 water injections.
1) 3 powder/1 water (Injection into one thigh)
2) 2 powder/ 1 water (Injection into the other thigh)
3) Gustavo also gives me an injection at home... To keep my ovaries sleeping
 
 


We go back on Tuesday! I am hoping that they will be big and fat! I do not know if we are going to do the retrieval on Thursday or Saturday... But I do know that it will be this week! And that is exciting. It is taking longer then I expected it would. This is day 34! Not that I did something EVERY day!
I am ready to get everything done! I know that the WORST thing will be waiting to see if I am pregnant! That will be the longest WAIT! With everything that we have coming up, I think that I will be busy enough to keep my mind occupied!
I am already making the vacation calendar! So much to do!

Will there be more Menopur?

Tonight I will be getting my LAST dose of Menopur. (I hope!) I was directed to have 3 ampules: 1 water for 7 nights.

I am hoping that at my doctor's appt, that my eggs are going to be plenty and 20mm!
I have to get my blood drawn and then a scan.

How am I feeling???
- Emotional
- A bit bitchy
- Bloated
- Hot Flashes
- Soreness (My thighs)
- Head aches
- People piss me off... QUICKLY (Not the kids... Just the adults!)
- Cramping
- Some short SHARP pains in my stomach
- Lower back pain
- Tired

I have NO idea what they will say to me tomorrow. I just hope that it is good news! I hope that my doctor gives me some kind of answers.

Generally when I ask questions... My doctor always says, "Let's get this step done first"
***IT DRIVES ME CRAZY!!!***
I am glad that things are SLOWLY progressing!

Everyone in the house is waiting for this to happen! I already feel pregnant!

New Tattoos

By looking at me, people would not know that I have any tattoos. I actually like it that way!

I realized that I couldn't see any of the tattoos that I already have... So- When on vacation... I got two!
I didn't think that I was going to have the time, but we had a layover in Dallas...

This tattoo is OUR Wedding date. I really wanted this tattoo. Gustavo also has the same tattoo in the same spot:) Now he will never "FORGET" our anniversary! LOL.
(Wow- I have more freckles then I realized, gotta love FLA)

Now- This is actually a completely sweet and intimate story...

I was looking around and found a verse that I really liked...
"Love Never Fails" 1 Corinthians 13:8 (NIV)
I wrote it down on a sticky note and stuck it on my computer screen...
Fast Forward...

When Gustavo and I got married, the man there asked if we would like to have a scripture read, we said, "YES"
Guess what he read??? You guessed it!
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (ESV)
And his last words were, "Love Never Ends" 
So- I decided to get that as well...  in My own handwriting!
 I know that you cannot tell from the photo... But this is the inner/upper arm...

We went to a place called "Tiger Moon"

The owner (Britt) was so nice to us and even gave us a ride back to the hotel! The taxi NEVER showed! We waitied FOREVER!!! The place was super CLEAN!
