four things...

I've been tagged by serenity & amy!

Four jobs I have had in my life:
1. engineering assistant (made blueprints & learned how to use a CNC machine - very exciting back in HS)
2. computer lab attendant (actually I really enjoyed this during grad school)
3. IT consultant (traveling out of town M-F for way way too long)
4. IT project manager/director (oh the fun!)

Four movies I watch over and over:
1. Princess Bride - inconceivable! (hahahaha! all new meaning now...)
2. Pride & Prejudice (along with the other movies in my A&E Romance Collection)
3. Strictly Ballroom
4. any & all cheezy 80s movies -- e.g., Footloose was on last night and I couldn't resist -- I might have even danced around the house a bit

Four places I have lived:
1. Berlin, NJ
2. Ithaca, NY
3. Cambridge, MA
4. Arlington, VA (for the past 10+ years!)
(actually those are just about the only four places I have lived...)

Four TV shows I love to watch:
1. 24
2. Daily Show (Jon Stewart is my TV husband)
3. Lost
4. Barefoot Contessa

Four places I have been on vacation:
1. Seattle - just got back!
2. Stowe, Vermont
3. Virgin Islands (St. John & Virgin Gorda)
4. Tuscany, Italy
(most recent destinations in reverse chronological order)

Four websites I visit daily:
1. MSN TTC6Mos+ message board
2. IF blogs
3. IVF Connections
4. Washinton Post Soduku

Four of my favorite foods:
1. pizza - any kind, anyplace, anywhere - I'm a pizza slut
2. Fatteh bel Djaje (Lebanese Taverna)
3. Bun Thit Nuong Cha Gio (grilled pork and crispy spring roll over rice vermicelli)
4. moussaka (my own of course)

Four places I would rather be right now:
1. Santorini, taking a nap by the infinity pool
2. the beach, listening to the waves crashing while taking a nap
3. laying on the bow of my dad's sailboat, taking a nap in the warm sun with the refreshing breeze cooling me off
4. taking an afternoon nap cuddled up with our dog on our comfy bed

Four favorite bands/singers:
1. Erasure
2. Vivaldi
3. Sublime
4. Dixie Chicks


I am very lightly spotting again and feel a bit crampy today so I'm guessing I'll get my period any day now.

Some good news - my acupuncturist said that I can cut back on the herbs a bit because they were starting to taste yucky. And the acu needles on the right side of my belly were freaking out last night! My right ovary always has more action anyway...more follicles, more eggs...

Awesome - sounds like the acupuncture and herbs are doing things there! Thanks too for the plug in your last post... I'm hanging in there.

To answer your question about IF counselors, my clinic has a mind/body center (created by Alice Domar)- I will work with someone there, I think, if we get our BFN.

But your RE should be able to recommend someone who specializes in IF, I think.

Thanks! I'll have to ask when I go in again -- I'm not very optimistic about this FET but still think I'll be crushed anyway... Might be time to start talking to someone.
