Cha Cha Cha Changes.....




I think he's slightly ashamed of his "manboobs" in this one....
This past week has been crazy. I started my new job Friday, training, and then worked Saturday and Sunday mornings. It is good, very fast paced, and I like helping all these people on their road to parenthood. I can really empathize with them also, since I have had infertility issues. I have also realized that Jason and I made the right decision when we decided to not do infertility treatments. They are all consuming and look very uncomfortable. I helped inseminate 21 women on Saturday. I wonder how many of those will actually have a baby nine months from now.... It was hard being away from Will, even just for the morning. Daddy and he had a good time together though. Sunday was also sad at our house. Since I became pregnant the cats have been peeing on our bed. It wasn't very often, but it is really gross!! Since Will came home they have been doing it more and more. It finally reached a level where I can't deal with it anymore. I love my cats, but I certainly don't love them that much! So, Sunday while I was at work Daddy and Will took the kitties back to the no-kill shelter where we got them. I feel awful, but I didn't know what else to do. I tried extra litter boxes, shutting them out, extra attention, everything I could think of. They just didn't like having the baby here I guess. The vet also said that I smell different when pregnant, that's why they were only peeing on my side of the bed. So, farewell Maggie and Lucy. I love you both, but I love the baby more, and I never learned to appreciate sleeping in your litter box! I hope you both find wonderful homes that are kid free and will give you lots and lots of attention.

Glad to hear that your job was great! Do you ever get to hear about who was a baby makin' success? As for your kitties. Sad though it may be, I think you had to make that choice. Peeing on your BED?!? that is unacceptable in my book. Phoenix just was peeing on the carpet occasionally and it made me see red. That you stood it for that long makes you qualified for kitty lovin' sainthood in my book!

It was horrible. I would be so exhausted and then finally crawl into bed to find my feet enter a cold, wet, icky spot!!!! And I tried everything the experts tell you to do. I had enough! And, yes we do hear about the outcome of fertility treatments. We follow the women throughout the first trimester and then keep in touch via the OB's.
