Off to Mexico!!!

We are leaving for Tulum, Mexico (near Riviera Maya) tomorrow morning at 6:30 a.m. Of course, we're super excited about some time away! I wish I could leave all of this infertility nonsense behind, but I still have to take my temp every morning so the chart is tagging along too. As well as my meds. But it could always be worse.

We're not sure what we'll be doing when we're there yet, we aren't plan-ahead kind of people. I definitely want to check out Xel-Ha and maybe some cenotes, but otherwise I'm pretty content just lying on the beach or swimming. Oh, and eating ridiculous amounts of food! I may show before and after swimsuit pictures. It's something like Jenny Craig in reverse.

My next doc's appointment (aka: "stirrup day") will be 6/15 which is the day after we get back. And my first day back at work, which is awesome because that means I'll get to wake up even earlier for my first day to make it by 7:30 to see the doc. But I'll be anxious to see how the ol' ovaries are doing. I hope everyone has a great week and I'll post pictures and stuff when we get home. (Of vacation, not my ovaries)

Off to catch some sun, relaxation, and swine flu- Amber


  1. Have a great time sweetie! Relax, have fun and eat lots of food (love the Jenny Craig comment, lol)! And please leave the swine flu in Mexico! :)

    I battle with this too...going on vacation but taking infertility with me. One thing I do try and do on vacation is I actually try to enjoy being kid free. I pretend that this is the last trip that I am going on kid free and that I need to enjoy it because next time it won't be so easy and care free...unfortunately I have gone on 3 of these trips-maybe 4, lol, but I do it! I live it up and pretend for a few days or however long the trip is that next time I will have a baby with me!

    Take lots of pics and if you can get in there, take a few of the ovaries too, lol!

  2. Have a wonderful trip and try to relax and do a little for me too. LOL. Enjoy!

  3. You commented so you must be back! Did you have a great time? I hope you did and I hope you had a relaxing time too! I can't wait to hear about your trip! :)

    Good luck at your doctor's appointment tomorrow!

    I'm going to comment about your comment here because I don't know if you will see it if I write back on my blog, lol. I'm trying to not get too down but sometimes I feel like a lab rat! I feel like I keep taking different kinds of meds in hopes to find the right one! I lost 5 pounds on metformin, so I think it may be working because my doctor also wanted me to take it because he hopes it will help with IF and my weight.
