much needed get-away!

Sorry I've been MIA for a few days... I haven't had much to write. I'm still trying to sort through all of these emotions left over from Tuesday.

So I'm torn. I've had some people say that maybe I shouldn't use the OPK because of me having PCOS and taking Clomid. BUT...Dr S told me that this should not effect the test.

I took a second test on Tuesday night, and it was not in my favor. Yesterday morning, the lines were the same color - so I'm thinking positive - and then this morning the test line was darker than the reference line. Positive.

So who knows what's going on with my body. I'm just trying not to get too down in the dumps about everything...at least not yet.

For the past two days, I have had headaches...lower back aches, and cramping in my abdomen. This sounds like ovulation to me...but again, not getting my hopes up.

Who knows with my body...it truly has a mind of it's own.

Clif and I are going camping with a friend of his from work (and his wife) this weekend. That should be fun... and relaxing. I'm looking forward to it.

We are leaving out around 6:30 in the morning, probably stop and get some breakfast - and then run to the hospital to get blood drawn for my progesterone levels.  Then we're headed out to the "creek" to mow grass and get camp set up.

Tonight is grocery shopping and packing the car. :) I love cooking while camping...bacon, eggs,pancakes, smores...hotdogs..

I love it all. Campfire, the creek (more like a river) running... the smells, the wildlife. It should be awesome. I'll have to take pictures and post them for you guys to see.

I told all the girls I work with that I'm sure I sound like a Hillbilly. :) I absolutely love it at the creek. Get to run around barefoot all day, swim, fish (I LOVE to fish)...snuggle around the fire, we even bathe in the creek. HA! Seriously, I have never seen cleaner water. I love to wash my hair in it. We were told (don't know how true it is) that Demi Moore had water shipped from this particular creek to wash her hair with. Interesting.

So yeah - I'm pretty excited, to say the least. Just a weekend away from civilization...everything. I look forward to being surrounded by nature and de-stressing a little bit.

I hope that you all have a great weekend - I'm sure that I'll have plenty to write about Monday when I get back. :) Oh, and Monday is my #4 appointment with Dr S. We'll do another u/s and go from there. Pray for us! (We are praying that God will knock the socks off of the drs and allow us to "do" this the "all natural" way!!)

God Bless!!!

My husband's uncle has a place down on the creek in Craig. Ya'll should try Claytor or even Lake Robertson is fun. :) There is actually a little place right down the road from where we camp in Craig that you can camp for $5 a night. No electric or anything, but still!

i used OPKs for both of my pregnancies and I have PCOS also, and I used Clomid. They were right on target both times. However, I will be purchasing an oral OPK for our next baby-making moment....just something to look in to, they are apparently easier to read and more accurate.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend camping! I'm not much of an outdoorsy person, but you made it sound like fun!
