Midwife appt and ttc again

I had an appt to see my midwife Jamie 12/15..but instead of seeing my midwife in Waconia(she got called to do a delivery), I had to go see a different midwife Gina in Chaska. I loved Gina, she's so nice. When the time comes, I think i'll see them both lol..not sure if that is possible though. Gina told me to keep taking my Metformin and my prenatal b/c there are studies that have been done that say that women with PCOS become pregnant, the metformin helps to reduce the risk of miscarriage. I havent started taking the metformin yet, because I need to call Jamie or Gina's office Monday and see what was said about my next steps (gina was going to call jamie to talk about what i had discussed with her at the appt). I have positive thoughts, and I just do not want to go through any infertility treatments--no more than clomid/femara or injectibles, mainly b/c we're still trying to pay off our debts and we are not fully starting the TMMO until next week or january. We're hoping to have my one small hospital bill paid off at the end of the month and that would help us tremendously. We then would have our clinic bill (close to 4k), my car (5k), and DH's hospital bill (23k). I am still hoping to be almost debt free come 2015..but that is a hope not a goal, because i have student loans that will come into repayment Sept 2013 6 mo after I am due to graduate college, and then there is our house too..which is ok to keep paying the amount, because we are in no hurry to pay off our house..but after all our debts are taken care of, we'll probably pay more a month since we'll have the money to do that.

As far as getting pregnant goes, we'll continue to try probably starting again in january or february it depends on a number of things though. We have talked about it and we'll try naturally until april, then after that we'll try clomid/femara and injectible if need be. We are also excited because we're finally going on vacation! We're going to Kississimee/Orlando in March and we're staying at the Westgate Vacation Villas -- my stepdad's condo! so excited! we'll be there for a week..and it is so much needed!

TMMO, WTT and updates! {early christmas present}

Since we are WTT, we decided to start Dave Ramsey's TMMO and as of right now, we have 34k in debt (includes medical bills and car loan). We just paid off nearly 2k of our debt last month. After Seeing my friend Molly, start the TMMO -- that was when I really started to look into getting the book. I bought the book months ago, and have even read it...but my husband has not read the book and did not really understand how the TMMO works, so I was finally able to sit down and talk with him about how it works. It makes sense though. I am hoping to have atleast half of our major debt paid off by this time next year...*fingers crossed*

I ended up getting a D&C done 11/23/11. My post-op is 12/7/11--and i'll be asking the doctor when is a good time to start ttc again, we are however, waiting the recommended 6wks which would put us at Jan/Feb. The doctor who did my surgery, said that she recommended we wait 2 cycles to start ttc again, so my 1st cycle after the d&c should be around 1/6/12..if it shows right after the 6wks following the surgery. If all goes well, my 2nd cycle should be around 2/2/12 and we will just hope for the best. I will not be ttc just to have baby, we did that for 2 years and all we got was early losses. The minute I focused on something else, we had a sticky baby..but the baby just was not healthy...even though that was the case..we were excited we had a sticky baby--it's hard to understand, but unless you've been there you probably won't. Since I had a very good idea baby was a boy -- we decided to name him Hudson James--even if we won't be seeing him in june :(

We went to Wal*Mart yesterday, only because I needed a few things to make my moms homemade chicken noodle soup, beef stew and to use up some coupons. I told my husband that I wanted a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer and when I seen that it was on sale for $180, I told him that we could put it on layaway and pay it off in another week or so..but when I seen it was in stock at the store...what did my husband say? My husband said, "This can be your early christmas present, I know you've wanted one of these for a long time". I was so happy! I've been scouting online stores to find the best deal, and I could not find one for under $200! I asked him if it was for christmas or early christmas...and he said I could have it now for early christmas. I told him I wanted a Kindle for christmas too..and I think he'll get me one of those too! because, I read alot of Jennifer Cruisie books and it would be a little bit cheaper, and save some space too. We will see.
