Dentist, RE, Back to School Night

Hello ladies!

How many of you have skipped out on the dentist during this TTC time period because you keep thinking, maybe I'll be pregnant this month, so I don't want to schedule cleanings and X-rays?
That was me. But now, those 1-800-dentist commercials were getting to me. I thought, crap, it's been over 2 years since I've been to the dentist, I probably should go.
But still I didn't.
Then, I lost part of my filling.
So now I have to.
So I went.
And guess what transpired over the past two years since I have had a dental cleaning?
THE WATER SCRAPER-THINGY!
Okay, now it's not perfect (yup, water up my nose at times), but infinately superior to the whole scrape, scrape-grim reaper type sikle.
And,
No Cavities!
I had to tell them I was TTC though because I didn't want to take x-rays.
Guess who got their period that same day?
Your's Truely.
But at least I got out of x-rays. And the water scraper thing wasn't so bad.
Ugh.

So my next RE appointment is Oct. 8th. I don't even know what I'm going to ask him. We have done 3 cycles of clomid with timed intercourse with lots of follicles each time. I have absolutly zero IF insurance (thank you california), so if IUI's are in the thousands of dollar range, than I may have to wait and save up for IVF. Blech. Any thoughts or suggestions on the types of questions I should ask?

And then last week was back to school night (I teach high school). For all those teachers out there, do you guys hate that night as much as I do? Parent's just want to know how their child is doing, but I still don't even know everyone's name in all of my classes! I just tell them what the standards are, where I went to school, make a few lame jokes, and it's over. I think after 8th grade there should be no more back to school night.
Okay, that's extreme, I'm just ranting. And I know when I'm a parent(*someday*) I'll want to meet my kids' teachers, but for now, just a rant.

And here's a teaser. I know some of you aren't watching Dancin*g with the S*tars this season, but I got tickets to go to this Tuesday's results show. I'll give an update later this week. I'm so excited, but have no idea what to wear! It's formal attire required.

Enjoy the start of a new week!

Blogger ate my 1st comment...I hate when that happens.

That is so weird...the whole "One Month To Live" thing! I don't believe my pastor knows yours but that's funny! Oh, and to answer your question...our pastor didn't start the series with a casket. LOL That's a great idea though!

We would have started with IUI's because they are SO MUCH CHEAPER but our insurance will only pay for IVF treatment, up to 15k in a lifetime (not going to take long to spend that!) If for some reason the IVF doesn't work after the $ is spent, we will save to do IUI's more than likely.

Dancing with the Stars...how much fun!! Post pics of you all dressed up!

Have a great week, girl!

I didn't skip dentist apts, but every time I went, I kept thinking -- maybe next time I'll be pregnant. I think I've had 4 since that. Ugh.

Oooohhh...the water scraper sounds really interesting. I still have to endure the horrible metal pic axe. Big owie! But you deserve a big high-five on the no cavities! Whooo!

Can't wait to hear more about DWTS!
