My Penguin Necklace
So let me explain the penguin. I joined an infertility message board a few months ago. I am an information addict. I want to know every.little.thing.about.every.little.thing when it comes to this whole IVF process. I tend to be one that if I prepare myself for the worse...what ever happens in the end is something I can handle. Case in point, I thought I was going to have to do PIO (progesterone in oil) shots after the ER and ET. I was all in a panic because these are IM shots and I could not wrap my head around the fact that I would have to give them to myself. Sub-Q into my belly...sure! IM into my rear...hell no! But I gathered my info and all but accosted every nurse I met with a plea to do the shots for me. Well, I found out yesterday...no PIO shots!....I have to do progesterone suppositories. Easy! Phew! So back to the penguins, this board I joined adopted the penguin as their mascot because of the lengths penguins go to have a baby. Both penguin parents share the responsibility of carrying the egg through the harsh weather and then when the chick arrives they both care for the chick...feeding and protecting it. So the ladies on this board send each other PPV and put pictures of penguins on their siggies (the info that appears at the end of their posts). So a few weeks ago, I was out shopping and while I was at Walmart...I saw this necklace. I nearly fell over. I told BJ about it and he got me this necklace to wear during our treatment. I plan to wear it to every appointment. It is my good luck charm. :) So far it is working!
So I have to share my recent splurge.
I kept seeing a commercial (I have no idea what it was for) that one of the actors is wearing these adorable red shoes. Every time I saw it...I loved these shoes more and more. I finally decided to try and find them. Zappos to the rescue! I searched for red shoes and scoured every page...then I found them. At first I was bummed because they did not have my size. But I read the reviews and everyone commented about how they run very narrow. I checked my size in a wide width...they had them! So I ordered them and two days later they were delivered! The fit is perfect and I can't wait to wear them. I figured since I can't really buy clothes right now...refuse to buy maternity before I am official pregnant but don't want to invest in clothes that I may not be able to wear at all...shoes are doable! And my other reasoning...while pregnant, I can't wear heels but I need nice shoes to wear to any events that I need to attend. Hence these shoes...
