(First off, hello to everyone coming from ICLW. You can read about our journey from start to finish at the page at the top. Right now, I'm in purgatory waiting to find out if I passed the NCLEX (the licensing exam to become a registered nurse){and also on call waiting for a doula client to go into labor so no getting drunk to mask the anxiety}. We're not currently doing anything special to try and make a baby, just hoping for some better insurance in our future.)

And for my NCLEX drama, I finally got the courage up to call the state board yesterday afternoon and spoke to a really nice lady about figuring out my test score. I explained to her what happened with the website and she didn't understand, so I explained it again. She took my name and SSN and put me on hold. Then she came back on and said she couldn't find a record of me registering to take the test. She put me on hold again and switched to another computer where she finally found where I took my test on the 15th but didn't have the results and she didn't know why. She took my phone number down and said she was going to do some more investigating and get back to me. She didn't call at all today so I decided I will try and swallow it up and call them back tomorrow morning. So I still don't know what I made and I'm losing my rate at a slightly quicker rate than usual.

I've also decided this must be what it feels like to be close and/or past your due date while pregnant  because everyone that loves me is texting, calling, facebook messaging like mad to ask if I know anything yet when they're all aware that I would be shouting it at the rooftops, whether I passed or failed, just to be out of this place of waiting waiting waiting.

I got to try and help a friend on a rough day this morning. It was the EDD from her miscarriage earlier this year and she had a major breakdown at work (which isn't far from me) and called me to see if I could get her drunk. It was like 10:30 this morning when we decided to go to a more adult friendly coffee shop and then we came back to my house to watch some trash tv while she sobered up. I was glad I could be there for her, coming from a place of understanding since I spent my EDD super drunk and miserable.

Then Matt and I spent the rest of the day together. We fetched my nanny guy's dog from their place while they're out of town, we spent some time watching a comedy show at our friends' home, and then came home and I cooked him some barbecue chicken, cheesy scalloped potatoes, and chocolate chunk cupcakes. It was all super, super yummy. Now we're going to watch the series finale of Smallville (and I will cry.)

Hi from ICLW (#21)! I have enjoyed reading your blog. I have to ask, what is NCLEX? I saw on the ICLW list that you also have endometriosis. I am sorry about that. It is a suck disease (one that is SO common, the computer still FAILS to recognize the spelling!! GEEZ!)

I will be following your story!

Hellow from ICLW as well :)

I too am not sure what NCLEX is, but I can see it's important and hope it all goes well for you!

That was such a nice thing you did for your friend, and it's great that you both understand where each other are coming from. Not many people have close friends that understand the tremendous TTC journey we face. Hopefully you both will be sharing pregnancy too.

Hi from ICLW! I enjoyed reading about your journey and appreciate your honest way of writing. That's cool that you're trying naturally and pursuing adoption at the same time. I've thought of that too. Hope you get your BFP, though! :)
