Just What I Needed

Yesterday was just the sort of day that I needed to take my mind off the obvious. (I really need to write about that, but I just can't bring myself to do it more yet. However I did take another HPT Thursday morning as directed by my Dr. and it was still faintly positive... so it's looking like I'll be in D&C territory next week probably.) Any how, let me paint the picture for you. Today was a mildly warm and extremely sunny day. DH and I took the Monster to the park to blow off some steam and to go fishing. This wasn't his first fishing excursion, but it was the first one that he cared about what was happening and got involved. Of course Mommy took her camera, and *B* and Daddy didn't disappoint once the fish started biting (which took about an hour an a half, b/c *B* kept throwing in rocks at first scaring off the fish), so I got lots of pics and a couple videos.

Getting the line ready with the hook and bobber.

The bait.

Holding a night crawler.

Getting a wax worm for the hook.

Sitting on the bank waiting for a bite.

The first catch... a blue gill.

Touching a fish for the first time.

The second catch and biggest of the day.

Another catch.

Learning how to take the hook out himself.

Realing in the first catch and Kissing the First Fish For Good Luck!! (I was totally grossed out by that, DH says that it's a fisherman's legend or something. *rolling eyes*)

After the fishing was bait was gone, we went to get some subs from Sub*way and then back to the park to the playground area. We ate and played. It was lots of fun. An hour passed of playing and *B* asked if he was getting his haircut today, b/c we had been jokingly messing with him calling a "Shaggy Dog." So, we decided to leave and see how busy the hair place was. Lucky us, we were the only customers at the time, so he got his head buzzed for summer. (I'll have to take a pic of that tomorrow, b/c I forgot.) Across from the hair place is D*Q, and b/c *B* had been such a good boy all day and noticed it was the ice cream place, we went out for a treat to reward him. When we were done there we had to head to Wal*Mart for some more pull-ups, and on the way home, the little man was out like a light. Of course we woke him when we got home to get him bathed and ready for bed, but he was ready to go straight back to sleep afterwards. All in all it was a perfect day and my focus was on being a Mommy to the precious ever-so-fast-growing little boy I already have.


  1. Hey! Here from ICLW and so glad to have found you. Am in a similar boat-secondary IF, one wonderful living child, multiple losses. I'm so sorry you're going through this!!
    I'm going to follow and catch up on more of your story soon. In the meantime know you have a new friend!!
    PS. Gorgeous pics!

  2. Catrisha, I'm glad you at least found a small ray of sunshine in the midst of life's current storm. I'm praying for you, for although I don't know how it feels to lose a child so early on, I can only imagine the grief. **HUGS**

  3. Adorable! Glad your little man was able to cheer you up! I'm thinking about you girlie!

  4. It sounds like an absolutely wonderful day.

    I was reading a little about your TTC history. The pattern of losses and when they happened sound a lot like mine. It turned out that I had Luteal Phase Disorder...basically a progesterone issue during my luteal phase that prevented a successful early pregnancy. If you haven't had it checked already, have them do a check at 7 dpo. Most REs (and OBs for that matter) say your progesterone level should be at least 10 in order to support a pregnancy (mine was only 8.2).

    Good luck and I am praying you find answers.


  5. What a picture perfect day! I loved the little videos. I doubt you could ever get a little girl to kiss a fish. Too cute.

    Hang in there sweetie.

    You're in my heart and prayers.

  6. Looked like a fantastic day. Monster is a handsome young man :)

  7. Your men are sooo sweet-- love these pictures! But I still find myself incredibly sad for you knowing what you are suffering even as you try to put on a brave face, distract yourself a bit, and get on with life in the midst of yet another heartbreak. I am so sorry.

  8. Kissing a fish for luck? Ewww....

    Sending hugs your way...


  9. What a great way to spend the day!


    Looks he had a great day! I hope you get answers really soon! Prayers coming your way!!

  11. It sounds like you had a wonderful day, a perfect way to take your mind off the tough stuff.
