|At My Monitoring Appointment|
Tuesday - I never heard back from the clinic about my blood work, but I'm assuming all looked great because my agency booked all the travel. Yay!!!!! I spent all day shopping for odds n ends (like gum, socks, and a new shirt... exciting I know), packing my suitcase (more exciting stuff), and cleaning the house (wow, that was an exciting day!).
Wednesday - I woke up at 2am too excited to sleep and finally got out of bed at 3:30am to get ready. Yep, I had an early bird flight at 6:30 am and I didn't want to be late. My first flight from Fresno, CA to Pheonix, AZ was about 2 hours. Not bad at all. I had a cup of coffee and read my book. The second flight to New York unfortunately was 5 hours. Gah! That's not good news for a girl with a butt as boney as mine. I really should bring a doughnut or something for a booty cushion. On the plus side, this flight had wifi, so I got to quench my social networking needs. Yay! When we finally landed I instantly turned into, OMG I'm a tourist mode! It took me an hour to find the rental car location, I forgot to turn on my headlights because my car normally does it for me, and I dropped my money twice while paying for tolls. Gah! Way to play it cool [palm to face]. In the end I got to Stamford in one piece though. Enjoyed a room service burger, remembered that Survivor was on (yay!!!!), read my book till way too late, and went to bed.
|Central Park, New York|
So today after my appointment I headed out the NYC. You really can't come all the way out here without doing some sight seeing. I kept it to a minimum though. I just walked around Central Park and headed out to the row of statues that I keep wanting to see, but never get around to. After that I headed to lunch at the Plaza across the street (OMG yum!) and then started my trek back to the hotel. I tried to stay as relaxed as possible, but how can you in that traffic???? Thus, when I reached the hotel I got a much needed massage. Let me tell you, this was the BEST massage I have EVER received and I just know it is sure to get us pregnant tomorrow!!!! Belle and Adam, we are sooooo close to a due date!!!!!
Ok, I'm super tired and ready to head to bed. I'll update tomorrow on how everything went. Wish us luck!!!!!
