Today has been a perfect souther california fall day. I'm being a little sarcastic, but I'll get to that later. Dh and I went apple picking this morning and then realized when we went to the bakery afterwards that there's no need to actually pick the apples yourself, you can buy much bigger versions of what you're buying at the store and you don't end up with prickly stickers all over your feet.
It was fun though, then we had lunch with my brother and SIL and that was cool. Have I mentioned that they have been trying to get pregnant for almost a year and a half? They did two IUI's with their obgyn and those were unsuccessful. She got some clomid from a friend of hers who got pregnant and had some left over and got pregnant on the illegal clomid. I love that she is pregnant, but I told her I hate that she got pregnant on illegal clomid. But since I'm so over joyed that she's pregnant I'm totally over it. You guys may hate me for saying that and I'll accept the abuse, but it's really how I feel. I'm such a rule follower. (I really was too scared to try drugs, the just say no program really worked... of course now I'm all hyped on progesterone and estrace, so maybe it's my own drugs talking).
Anywho, my SIL is about 3 weeks behind us and it's really fun. We're so excited because our kids will have a cousin the exact same age to play with and it should be totally fun.
Then Dh and I took a nap, and now I'm putting out the fall decorations while watching Whi.te Christmas. I suppose I'm in the holiday spirit. There aren't too many good fall movies (I watched You've got. Mail earlier) so Christmas will have to do.
The reason for my sarcasm is that it was 104 degrees today and even now at 7:51 pm it's still in the low 90s. So by 'fall' I mean it's autumn, but in no way does it feel like fall. The temps are supposed to cool down a little bit next week, but I'm not holding my breath.

Things to look forward to:
Monday is my first OB appointment. So I'm just praying that everything looks good with our little gummy bear (my experience from all of your ultrasound pix is that the 6 week one looks like a wedding ring - yolk sac included - and that the 8-9 week looks like a gummy bear). So this will be one monday I won't have a hard time waking up for. Not until the afternoon, but still, I am excited.

Happy Fall!

Bless your heart on those temperatures!! It's finally in the 70's here and I'm praising Jesus daily.

That is hilarious that your S-I-L got pregnant on her friend's leftover Clomid! I would be way too chicken to take anything without a prescription.

You are correct on your statement about fall movies...I'm already watching Christmas movies too.

Can't wait to hear about your apptm on Monday! :)

I hope your appt went well today!

That is exciting to have cousins so close in age. Our little one and my nephew will be exactly a year apart and were thrilled. I can only imagine how great it would be to have them weeks apart!

my friend did a few iui cycles. one day she called to tell me her doc *wanted* to let her take some follistim that evening but she hadn't attended the "injections course" so he told her she couldn't. they'd just continue to monitor.

well, a certain friend had some extra follistim so she offered it to her. she really didn't think she'd take her up on it but next thing i, er, she knew, her friend was knocking on her front door and giving illegal injections in her master bathroom.

my friend ended up pregnant and we agreed that i own a foot b/c of the illegal follistim injection. would she have gotten pregnant w/o that? we'll never know.

she researched doses and i mentioned the doses i had taken. worst thing that could've happened was she didn't get pregnant that cycle so we were both willing to take that risk.

we, of course, laugh about it now.
