What I Learned from my Mock Transfer

I learned that I still have an unremarkable, ordinary, nothing worth talking about uterus. In other words, it’s perfectly normal. Hell yeah!

I also learned that it’s not good to hold your pee. Yep, that’s right ladies. Dr. M asked me how badly I needed to “go”. And I told him that I went when I got there but that I drank water on the way up because I couldn’t remember if I needed a full bladder or not and that I’d been waiting for about 20 minutes so the bladder was filling up again. He said that by looking at how full my bladder was I should have to go pretty badly. He said that it’s not good to hold it because it makes your bladder larger over time and when it fills it gets pretty heavy. He says that it can cause problems later in life. His advice is to try and keep the bladder as empty as possible by going as soon as we feel that we have to...not to wait until we have to go badly. Makes sense to me. Now tell that to my job that often keeps me at my desk until I feel like I could burst. I will try to heed his warning as I do not want a leaky bladder down the road. :-)

I have sent 3 e-mails to the financial coordinator to set up a phone consult. I haven’t heard a peep from her. While at my mock this morning I spoke with my “old” financial coordinator and she gave me the number of the Team Leader and suggested I call her since I have not heard back from the other lady. I called and left her a voicemail. About an hour ago I received a call from one of the team members. She began telling me what I needed to do before I can get my full time password to the database. As she’s telling me things (see counselor, get Mock ET) I’m telling her that I have already done all of that. She’s impressed. She said that we need to get our Infectious Disease testing done even though it hasn’t been a year since we got it done. It’s close enough as we did it last year on 2/22. She will send me lab forms. The next thing was the financial consult. I told her what I had been up to on that front and she said she would speak with A (the girl I left a message with today) to make sure she gets back to me.

So ladies, I guess we are inching even closer to making this a reality. I have a post in my head that I’m working on about this but I just haven’t had the time to get it out on paper. Hopefully very soon as I have some things I need to work through and hearing from others might help me do that.

On another note, the Superbowl party went very well. At the end of the night, however, one of our neighbors decided to drop her Pyrex glass pie plate full of buffalo dip on our ceramic floor. Needless to say we had about 2,000 pieces of glass to sweep up and then vacuum up because the broom just didn’t get it all. She’s not one of my favorite people anyway and this just irritated me. Thankfully, she did not crack our tile. I was not sad to see her leave. And believe it or not, I do have other things going on in my life that I’d like to write about if I could find the time. There’s lots to about the house, my scrapping hobby, the LG, the LG’s mother etc. I’m hoping to start putting some posts together as my life does not fully revolve around trying to get knocked up.  :-)

Doc is right about your bladder. Once you're PG you'll see how important going right away is... because every time you laugh, sneeze, or cough, you will leak! Practice your kegels now!

I didn't know that about the bladder but I'm glad that I know now.

That is really good news about the mock transfer. Yay! I really hope this goes well for you. Hopefully by next year I'll be doing the same.
