This sounds like fantastic news about Jace! Are you still worried?



I wanted to get a gastric bypass but then I went and disqualified myself by losing a bunch of weight. :oops: I guess I'm okay with it though. =p

I'm a little worried still. We have an appointment with a geneticist next month. I think he'll catch up, though.

Our thread is quiet :(



So I was chatting with my mom on the phone this morning. They live in southern Utah. We're visiting next month. My poor mother... she's finishing her bachelor's degree in accounting. The end of her term is the end of July. She found out yesterday that they're raising the rent of her home by a significant amount and making her sign a lease. So she's basically going to have to move in the middle of her last term. I'm trying to talk her into moving back here.



She also informed me that my sister is going to TTC in June. I don't talk about my sister a lot but we don't get along at all. She's 3 years younger than me. She sided with my ex when I got divorced. She still talks to my ex. Why? I couldn't tell you... I asked her why and she's like , "well he's a person too and he deserves my respect because you don't give him any." Yeah there's a reason for that. We don't talk, like ever. She sent me a happy birthday text earlier this year and a, "Sorry about your ectopic pregnancy" text the day of my surgery. We're not competitive by any means but seriously she better not get pregnant before me. Is that weird of me to say that??! My mom also told me she's going to be moving to Seattle shortly. I'm not too thrilled about that. I don't really want to see her or have her in my or my family's life at all. I know that sounds really cold of me.

Also... in light of my sister... it makes me want to go ahead with IUI in June if my left tube is all clear....

I know it sounds terrible but I would be devastated if my sister had a child before I did. We have a strained relationship as well. I love her and she loves me but she's extremely flaky and I just can't deal with people like that.

My sister is too. She's very... what's a good word here... she really looks down on me but she has no reason to. She's very two faced. I wish we could work things out and have a normal sister relationship that we used to have. I guess we've just grown apart.




I feel like she'll look at TTC as a competition as well. I'm sure she looks at us and thinks there's something wrong with us because we haven't conceived yet and the one time we did conceive I must have done something wrong or something was wrong with me.



I do kinda think if my scan is clear next month that we're going to go ahead with IUI in June. I don't see a reason to wait. Lots of people with ectopics have had successful pregnancies from the same tube. Plus I might get pregnant before she does :wink:

In two weeks DH is getting an S/A done to see if the surgery helped.. I'm not even sure what to think about the S/A, I'm worried nothing changed and the surgery was useless.
