.Peculiar Baby. {10}

The last time we talked, it was in December when I had a +positive+ pregnancy test and then started my cycle 2 days later. After having blood work done, we found that it was just a "faulty" pregnancy test . How rude right?! Well it didn't help with all the hormones I was taking at the time either.
January we started seeing Dr. Craig in Tempe. He is a goofy looking fella, but he knows his stuff and was to the point about everything. And his nurse practioner Shannon, it was love at first sight for me. She was so nice, informative and didn't make me feel like a fool for any random questions I had. Also, with Dr. Craigs staff. You saw the same nurse practioner, the same girl who draws your blood, the same lady to talk about insurance too, and the same doctor every time. Phew!! What a relief! I felt as if they always knew who I was and really cared and were interested in what was best for me and what I needed in order to fix whatever it is that is wrong.
We had to wait a month for insurance purposes to do our 4th IUI. Which I was totally fine with. At this point, I had quit my job/walked out on the spot the 3 days before Christmas. A decision that Levi had been telling me to make and do since last August but I never had the guts. Dr. Craig had me on different progesterone, more shots, I wasn't allowed to raise my heart rate past 130-so I had to be careful with cardio, and no caffiene.
It was a Friday Feburary 3rd. Levi was waiting for me infront of the building as I drove up. I always get nervous before going in to these appointments and he is always there for me ready to hold my hand through the entire thing. Each time is a different nervousness, maybe this time was because they were doing the IUI 2 days prior than when I showed I was supposed to ovulate but because of how my follicules looked-not off my blood/hormone levels. We get in, Shannon calls us back, I get ready and we see that Levi has plenty of swimmers and that I had 4 Follicules that were ready with 1 "Cheer Leader" aka, it wasn't big enough to be considered a canidate (follicles are what they call the "eggs" before they drop and actually become eggs). Levi always like to watch how the procedure is done and the nurse always lets him stand behind her and watch every step. Well this time, as Shannon was getting ready to inject the swimmers, she looks up to Levi and says "actually, do you want to inject the swimmers?", Levi got more giddy than I have seen him a long time and glady accepted the invitation to do so. Shannon gave him all the instructions needed and he injected all 53 million little swimmers, smiling ear to ear.
This 4th IUI experience was the best one of them all. I felt at such peace knowing that whatever happens will happen. My family and close friends did a fast for us the previous Sunday, Levi and I have grown so close through this trial, I finally had a clear mind with no work stress and we could feel all the prayers coming our way. It's incredible the path Heavenly Father leads you down, and the faith you have to have to just know that whatever is going to happen, it will be for the right reasons.

. $30 Round Trip Tickets.

When the airport 10minutes from your house has $30 Round Trip tickets to Vegas and you already have a free weekend stay in a Hotel on the strip, you just can't say no...right?!
This trip was one of the best Vegas trips we've taken yet. We went Thursday-Saturday, got free 1st class upgrades on the way there, saw the show La Reve and loved every second of it, went to the wax museum for free, went shopping, ate way too much, walked a ton to the point where I bought new running shoes and had no shame wearing them at night bc of how bad my feet hurt, found out that I've already had the chicken pox because I broke out in shingles and got some of the best quality time with Levi! I have to admit, I've been one to be super attached to my phone. Guilty as charged and not proud. But this particular weekend I left it in the hotel quite a bit and let me tell you, not being tempted to check instagram, Facebook, pinterest, etc. texting friends and clients back, was the BEST!! I didn't even have an itch for my phone when I didn't have it, more of a relief to be honest.
I love quick weekend getaways, especially when we can do them under a budget and still have the greatest time.

.Where the Weather is Always Pleasant.

Back in uhhh...January...we took a quick weekend trip to San Diego to visit my sister Hillary. Christy and Chris had to deliver some furniture for Hillary's in-laws, so we jumped in the back seat with Mason and took off!
We always stay with Hills in-laws, they have the best.house.ever!! Went to the swap meet, slept in, see our nephews, traditional Mexican food and donut runs and seester time.
I forget that the drive to Cali really isn't that bad. With the weather already hitting the triple digits, I've got a feeling we are going to be out there quite often this summer...
