Beta #2

We officially have doubling betas people. And considering I'm a finance person I should be good at math, but I'm actually quite terrible at math in my head. Now give me an excel sheet and I can rock the crap out of those numbers, but in my head forget about it. But so this is more than double in 2 days, and we're aiming for double in 48-72 hours so this is good right? The nurse of course assured me both my hcg of 618 and progesterone of 122 were great, but somehow coming from you guys puts my mind even more at ease!!!

And of course the minute the nurse says, okay and we just want to see you for one last beta on Monday the worry returns. Now I have to spend all weekend waiting, again. And to make it worse hubby is off to Vegas for a bachelor party so I'm packing up and staying at my p's. And I just keep reminding myself if nothing else I have at least one baby in there who's rocked two betas so far. Keep it up Scooter (and maybe Skeeter)'re making mommy so proud!!!

The Results Are In....

And I can't believe I'm even typing these words but....I'M PREGNANT!!!

The Dr. just called and my HCG at 10dp5dt is 234 and progesterone is 84, both of which he said were awesome. And I made a confession to him, which I now need to make to you guys. I totally already knew!!! Sorry to those of you I had fibbed to about testing, I never intended to test...I'm usually not a tester, I can typically hold out and with the pressure of IVF I wouldn't have been able to take a BFN.

BUT, remember this post when I said I was testing the HCG out of my system in case I had the urge to POAS. And hubby told me the line on Tuesday was basically gone but I could still kinda see it. Well, I needed that stark white absolutely no line after hubby left for work on Wednesday (4dp5dt) I got up and took one more test. And of course the super faint line that had showed up on Monday was back!! So now in my mind I'm like wtf, that dang trigger shot still isn't out of my body yet...and I'm 9dpo. I researched online and they said it can last up to 10dpo...but then I realized we only did half the trigger since my levels for so high! So could it actually be a BFP?!?

Well now I'm hooked, and of course when I get home from work on Wednesday I POAS again and the line gets a tiny bit darker...and I don't have to squint to see it. I didn't have any more tests so I had to wait until Thursday when I got home from work and that's when I attempted with a digital FRER...and sure enough Yes+ popped up!!! I sent the pic to hubby and told him this may actually be the real deal. We decided to keep it to ourselves until the beta, it was one thing to get our hopes up...but we couldn't risk doing that to our families only to let them down if this wasn't for sticking around at least until the beta.

We are so excited and thrilled and cannot believe how lucky we are, but at the same time it really is hard to believe. This last year has just been negative and negative and then boom, a BFP. Its really hard to let that sink in, and truly believe that this is all us...finally...almost a year to the date from our last BFP. Everything in my body wants to believe this is it for us, that all our struggles were just leading to this time around when the stars would align, but after a loss, even if it was a year ago...the doubt creeps in oh so quickly. I promised hubby to try my best to just remind myself each day that today I'm pregnant and that's all I can really do. I plan to take it step by step, and just enjoy every frickin second along the way. So next step, beta #2 on Thursday. Cross your fingers for good doubling times!!!

Sounds of Music & 6dp5dt

So there's been a few people who have posted about this song. I first saw it here on SS's blog, I remembered hearing the song once or twice and liking it, but once I read the the perspective of IF I was hooked. I immediately downloaded it that night to my and have been listening to it on repeat ever since. And I'm going to tell myself its not just coincidence that hubby has heard the song 4 times so far in our tww! Whenever he was running out to get me food or something he'd come home all happy cause he heard that song on the radio! He called me the other day, and he just held the phone up to the radio...such a sweetie my guy is!! So if you need something to pep you up this Friday, go download Mr. Bu.ble!

I Just Haven't Met You Yet
I'm not surprised.
Not everything lasts.
I've broken my heart so many times I stopped keeping track.
Talk myself in.
I talk myself out.
I get all worked up, then I let myself down.

I tried so very hard not to lose it.
I came up with a million excuses.
I thought I thought of every possibility.

And I know someday that it'll all turn out.
You'll make me work so we can work to work it out.
And promise you, kid, that I'll give so much more than I get.
I just haven't met you yet.

Mmmm... I might have to wait.
I'll never give up.
I guess it's half timing, And the other half's luck.
Wherever you are.
Whenever it's right.
You'll come out of nowhere and into my life.

And I know that we can be so amazing.
And baby your love is gonna change me.
And now I can see every possibility.

Mmmm... But somehow I know that it'll all turn out.
And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out.
And I promise you, kid, that I'll give so much more than I get.
I just haven't met you yet.

They say all's fair.
And in love and war.
But I won't need to fight it.
We'll get it right and, We'll be united.

And I know that we can be so amazing.
And being in your life is gonna change me.
And now I can see every single possibility, mmmm.

And someday I know it'll all turn out.
And I'll work to work it out.
Promise you, kid, I'll give more than I get, Than I get, than I get, than I get.

Ohhh! You know it'll all turn out.
And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out.
And I promise you, kid, that I'll give so much more than I get.
I just haven't met you yet.

I just haven't met you yet.
Ohh, promise you, kid, to give so much than I get.

(I said love, love, love, love...)

I just haven't met you yet.

I just haven't met you yet.

So that's my happy place I just know things really are going to work out some day song, but let's be honest with IF there are times you're not so sure, and you feel beaten down you wonder if you'll ever find your way out. And when I'm in the sad place, I turn to the following song by Kendall Payne. I can't tell you how many times I've blasted this song in my car and just bawled my eyes out. I first heard it on Grey's Anatomy, and its now definitely one of my favs. Lately some awful things have been happening to some amazing women in our little bloggy world, and my heart goes out to these girls, its so unfair and I don't understand why anyone should have to endure some of the things we've all been through, or are going through now. But despite all of these terrible awful things, this song reminds me there is always hope.

I Will Show You Love

I will show you love like you've never loved before

I will go the distance and back for more if you just say the word

You will come alive again and call the trying times your friend

The pain that you have suffered through will never get the best of you
You will hope in something real that won’t depend on how you feel
When you call my name then I will answer, answer

I am on your side though the wind and waves beat against your faith
You were on my mind when the world was made
Trust in me my child, Trust in me my child

Walk out on the water where you have no control
So scared to death of failure you sacrifice your soul, please let that go
You have climbed an uphill road, You have worn a heavy load
You have cried through endless nights and nearly given up the fight
Watched your dreams like falling stars the heartaches made you who you are
Now looking back you see that I have always been there

Cause I am on your side Though the wind and waves Beat against your faith
You were on my mind When the world was made
Trust in me my child, Trust in me my child

Where you gonna hide? Where you gonna hide from Me?
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go that I can’t see?

Cause I have heard your cry
And it breaks my heart, for I love you so
I will never lie
This is not the end
There is still a hope

Cause I am on your side
Though the wind and waves Beat against your faith
You were on my mind When the world was made
Trust in me my child, Trust in me my child

Happy ICLW & 4dp5dt

Welcome ICLWers. Very exciting times here!! To give you some background we're unexplained infertility, and have been trying since Jan '09. We got our first BFP au natural last year on 4/24 but sadly miscarried two weeks later. We've come full circle and just completed our first IVF cycle (4 failed IUIs prior), and oddly enough I am again hoping for a BFP this year on 4/24. My beta isn't until 4/27 and I'm not sure if I'll try to wait it out or not. Today I'm 4dp5dt which means I'm technically 9dpo. We transferred two beautiful embabies which now go by Scooter & Skeeter, and we have two snow babies that we can hopefully save for down the road. I'm hoping with everything I got this will be my cycle!!

And to update my progress so far, this has basically been the most agonizing week ever. Saturday and Sunday after the transfer were fine, since I was basically a huge waste of space on my couch, watching movie after movie, napping with the pups, and hubby doting on me 24/7. He was seriously the sweetest little nurse ever!!! He must have gone on 8 different food runs, and made this super comfy bed for me on the couch that he would not let me get up from except to pee and eat! But come Monday and Tuesday, and I had decided to work from home just so I didn't have to do the whole trek from the train to work and could maintain my light activity status. And my thoughts and my arch enemy google got the best of me.

Yesterday I had a mild panic attack when it occured to me that my lining could potentially be too thick, a thought which randomly popped in my mind. So I start crazily googling this and of course find some mixed findings. People saying your lining can't be too think, people saying anything over 14mm is bad and can affect implantation, so cue the tears streaming down my face as I realize mine was 16.5. Great, so my overly ambitious lining is the thing that is going to ruin this. Hubby suggested I call the nurse, who assured me I shouldn't worry about it and if I was really worried I should call my dr. Well, I've been saving my call Dr. S card this whole time, so I thought this was the perfect time to play it. Of course I still had to go through his nurse, but she relayed his message that my lining was 15.5 at the time of transfer which is perfect, and he's seen many women with linings thicker than mine get preggers, and to STAY OFF THE INTERNET!!! Hah.

Today I'm back at work, and I never thought I'd be so happy to go back to the office. I also scheduled a very needed acupuncture appointment for after work today...need to get zen again. As for symptoms, well my boobs effing kill. Which I blame entirely on the PIO shots, since this started before the transfer. And aside from that I really don't feel anything, which is just adding to the crazies! I did POAS Monday & Tuesday to test out the trigger shot, IN CASE I decide to test for real. Monday I had a super faint positive, and Tuesday was basically negative. Although I think I can still see a shadow of a line...hubby thinks we're in the clear. And that's that, we just continue to wait and hope and pray for the best!!!

I'm Pupo!!!

I can't believe I'm saying that, in a way it seems like this whole IVF cycle has been a blur! I remember popping my first bc pill thinking the end seemed SO far away. But now I'm entering the home stretch, and I just hope this final week isn't quite as agonizing as last...but I have a feeling that won't be the case! Hello worst tww of my life! Please be kind to me, and if its not too much to ask a BFP would be amazing!!!

Okay, so now to the details of the transfer! Friday night I don't know how I slept at all, hubby and I were so nervous...especially since we really didn't have any details about our embabies since the call on Wednesday. I swear I kept waiting for the call to tell us there was no need to come in on Saturday for the transfer. Even on our way downtown that morning I kept praying that my phone wouldn't ring.

So Saturday morning arrived (with no cancellation calls), and I got up and showered and then we headed downtown for my first round of acupuncture at 8:15am. On the way down I downed a V8 to start the whole process of filling my bladder. I finished up around 9, and we headed over to my clinic which is next door. The nurse had told me to arrive at 9:20 so we were a little early which turned out to be brutal because they didn't end up calling us to go back until close to 10. Probably the longest hour of my life! So they bring us back and I think okay, finally!! But no, we sat in that dang room for another 50 minutes. I wasn't nervous for the procedure, we just wanted the news on our little embabies...because hubby and I were still waiting to make our decision on transferring 1 or 2 until we knew what we were dealing with.

I was also pacing my water drinking for a 10:20 transfer time, and not an 11:15 transfer. And let me tell you when someone tells you to drink but not pee, pretty much the ONLY thing you can thing about is how badly you want to brutal!! So finally my Dr. arrives a little before 11, he gives us the low down on our embabies. We have 4 very good quality, and the last little guy is moving a little slow but they're going to keep watching. I was totally shocked, I had pretty much given up the hope of freezing any of these guys and here we were with 4 blastocyst babies!! Hubby and I took a few minutes to decide what to do, the Dr. said we only had to transfer 1 with our quality and informed us that transferring 2 would give us a 5% chance of having triplets, which he definitely wanted to avoid with me being on the smaller side. We made a game time call to transfer 2!

The procedure itself was super fast, about 5 minutes and very similar to an IUI. I was beyond nervous while they did it though, almost in tears. I kept my eyes closed the whole time, and just concentrated on not peeing on my Dr. And yes, being me...the person who is always saying inappropriate things...totally told my Dr. I was scared I was going to pee on him. I couldn't see if face, but hubby said he looked VERY scared when I said that, hah! But my god, these people were an hour behind...can you imagine how my frickin bladder felt!

So to wrap this up, I'm now PUPO with two little embabies...who are nicknamed Scooter and Skeeter. The embryologist called yesterday to tell us they successfully froze our other two blastocyst babies, but unfortunately the last guy didn't make it. She also said we transferred to really really beautiful embryos so hopefully I won't be needing the frozen guys for a little while. Oh man, we can only hope!! So begins what I imagine will be the longest and most agonizing tww so far. My beta isn't even until the 27th, a week from tomorrow!! I swear that seems like a really long time, and still haven't decided if I'm going to try and hold out (hubby's preference) or POAS. I guess time will tell, which me luck girls...this is it!!!
ps...That is not my picture (apparantly my clinic doesn't do that, bummer), I do have a pic of the screen shot of the u/s with two teeny tiny white dots when they shot the embryos in my uterus. But its pretty blurry!

Waiting for the Call - Updated

Ahhh, waiting again...will the waiting seriously ever end!?! I'm so close I can taste it, which only makes me all the more nervous to see what all this waiting will end with. But here I am waiting for the call to tell me my embabies are still going strong, and what time my transfer will be tomorrow. And I apologize for the suspense, but they did call on Wednesday the day after this post to tell me all 5 embabies were still doing their thing, and I had been pushed back to a 5 day transfer. Cue tears of joy, you would have thought she just told me I was preggo or something! And thank you as always for all the kind comments, with so many people hoping and praying for my embabies I just feel beyond blessed!!

So I literally didn't want to let this woman off the phone, I wanted her to tell me a million more times that my embabies were okay, and made her assure me over and over they would continue to check and call me if anything changes (duh). Still, I needed her to say it. So also told me now I just had to wait until Friday for the call with my transfer time tomorrow. So now I'm waiting again, I'm dying to know how my embabies are doing.

Its funny because if someone would have told me when we were getting started that the hardest week of IVF would be the week between ER and tranfer, I would have laughed and said why? You're not doing shots (except PIO which really aren't as bad as I was expecting), you aren't all hyped out on drugs, you aren't pumping your ovaries full of follies, you get a bunch of eggs and just bide your time until the transfer. So wrong. So very wrong.

I mean this waiting for embaby updates has been just torturous, truly. And the post retrieval side effects really caught me off guard. Sure they told me to drink Gato.rade which I did at first, but by day 2 I felt fine. Then comes day 3 when it literally feels like I ate 7 thanksgiving dinners and can not make that feeling go away. That night my throbbing ovaries literally woke me up twice. It wasn't super painful, more just freaking the crap out of me...hubby got me some tyl.enol and a heating pad which seemed to help. I was convinced my ovary was twisting (something I read while researching OHSS that day at work when I was having the stomach issues) which can result in actually losing your ovary. This is supposed to be extremely painful and very rare, but hey at 2am I was probably not thinking rationally!! In any case I was convinced I was having OHSS and my transfer would be cancelled.

I went to my clinic yesterday morning for a scan, to which I checked out totally normal. No fluid buildup anywhere (a sign of OHSS), and my ovaries are just super swollen. They're normally 2 cm (is cm right), well the u/s lady said they're normally 2 and right now mine are 8 each. So its kinda like having 3 uteruses in my body, which is putting pressure on my bowels, intestines, stomach...pushing everything up. And gravity is pushing everything down onto my hugely swollen ovaries, which apparently takes a week or two before they shrink back down. So while my internal organs battle for space in my body, I just have to grin and bear it. Really looking forward to the days when I don't have to feel my ovaries on a daily basis, ugh!!

Wow, so this post just got really summary today I'm feeling much better. Ovaries are still a rockin, but stomach pressure is better. And my emotional state will hopefully be better once I get this frickin call! C'mon my little embabies, make mommy proud!!!

***Just got the call from the nurse, transfer is scheduled tomorrow for 10:20am!!! I'm so excited we made it. She didn't have an details on my embabies, just that the lab noted they were still being cultured. Really wanted more info, but one more day will hardly kill me. She did say that typical protocol for a 5 day transfer was to have at least 4 good quality embryos. And she said they definitely would have called if something drastic has changed!! And my Dr. is the one on call tomorrow, so he'll be knocking me to speak! I was wondering if he was going to get through this whole thing without seeing my whooha at least once, hah!!!

From Over to Under Achiever

I really wish that title could be different. I really wish a lot of things were different, but if there's one thing I've learned from my past when things seem to be going smoother than they should...expect a blow to hit you when you least expect it, for me at least. I wish I could go on about how my egg retrieval was super easy, and we got 15 eggs, and how yesterday I was on cloud nine that it was over and successful. I wish those were the details I was sharing with you.

But today the fertilization report call came, of my 15 eggs, 12 were mature, and only 5 fertilized. And remember we're doing ICSI so they're literally placing a sperm in each egg. Last night I was happy with 15 because I thought even if half fertilize I'd be more than okay with that number. But today our fertilization rate is at 40 something percent. I looked up one stat online and with ICSI they estimate 75-85% of eggs will fertilize. So what's up with my frickin eggs. No wonder we haven't gotten pregnant yet. And how the hell did we ever get pregnant on our own a year ago?!?

I know I should be happy and grateful, and believe me I am. I have 5 little embabies that I didn't have yesterday, and that in itself is a success. But embabies will only get you so far, and with my history of miscarriage and possible multiple chemicals...I can't help wondering how far these embabies will make it. What will the call tomorrow be, how many will make it through the night. Forget freezing...I'm worried if any will make it to transfer. I know I'm probably being super dramatic, but I'm scared. I thought the hard part was over, but this is unbearable. I thought with 15 eggs I wouldn't have go through the drugs again, but now I don't know. All I know is nothing is certain...and like I said going into IVF there were no guarantees. I knew this going in, and I'm not even out of the game yet...but I'm just so scared.

I'm trying so hard to remain hopeful, I'm praying so hard for these 5 little embabies...the woman who called said I should be happy and she often has to call with news that no eggs fertilized. I'm just so worried that call is still coming for me, that my eggs are shit, and even IVF can't help us. I'm so sorry for the downer post, I want to be happy, and positive for my embabies...they deserve all the hope in the world and I should not be giving up on them now. But I'm just so scared, and I don't know how I'm going to make it until tomorrow for the next update.

Here We Go...

Just a quick update, went for a follie check yesterday and nurse called in the afternoon confirming we were ready to trigger. Official trigger time was 9:00pm last night, meaning our retrieval is set for tomorrow at 9:00am!! I of course can't wait to get this part over with, but am super nervous because I've never been under before and don't really know what to expect. Yikes!!

And so far with this whole IVF process I feel very lucky for many reasons, the ER came pretty fast, while the shots sucked they were definitely bearable, and my follies are definitely cooperating. On the other hand I know a million things can go wrong, and we're hardly out of the woods yet. This is going to be a long week waiting to find out how many eggs fertilize, continue to develop, what the quality will be, will we be able to freeze any, etc! All things hubby keeps reminding me I can't control so let's just get through tomorrow, and take this one day at a time. Ahhh, if only it were that easy!!

Wish me luck girls, and thanks for all your support so far! You're the best!!!

Monitoring - The Sequel

So two days of waiting for you next monitoring appt is way more bearable than four! This morning came super quick, and I was of course totally excited to get another glimpse at my growing follies. Even though it meant getting up an hour earlier, for the fourth day this week so I could drive my butt downtown. I miss my morning naps on the train, ahhh...the good ole days. So the headlines are my follies are bustin, both the u/s lady and the nurse who took my blood called me an over it! I've graduated to the daily monitoring so I go back again bright and early tomorrow, and this nurse is guessing trigger Saturday and ER on Monday!!

I'm already so excited to get these eggies out of me, my ovaries are acting up. It's not painful, more like constant twinges or throbs! Its almost like there are two little parties down below, and not quiet little cocktail parties...I'm talking frat guy style keg parties, lots of action!! I much prefer knowing they're there and doing their job without actually feeling it. But a small price to pay for some great looking follies. Here are my stats:

Right ovary: 16, 16, 15, 14, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 10, 9
Left ovary: 17, 14,5, 14, 13,5, 12, 11, 10, 10, 10, 9
Lining: 14
Estradiol: tbd

The nurse said they like the follies to be between 15-20, so we're getting close here people. Tonight I continue my meds, 10 iu's Lup.ron, 75 iu's Men.apur (which stings like a mother...ouch), 75 iu's Folli.stim (which was lowered from 150 to 75 on Tuesday because my estradiol was on the high side for CD8).

So I'm sure you can tell IVF has pretty much consumed my life this week, and I plan everything around monitoring appts, acupuncture appts (so excited for this afternoon), which days I need to drive (every day), giving shots at the right time (which hubby had to do last night in our car while parked in a parking garage downtown), and planning for my ER so I can attempt to give work some notice I'll be out. I think I'm going to shoot the email today to my boss that "the little procedure" I had previously mentioned may end up being this Monday, but I won't know for sure until Saturday so I'll email him this weekend and confirm. I'm sure that won't confuse the crap out of him, I'm dying to know what he thinks this procedure might be, hah! Okay, and now time for some serious blog catch up!!!

Monitoring Report

Ah, Tuesday at last!!! Halle-frickin-lujah! Last night I was just on pins and needles all night long, could not sleep, when I finally did pass out had a dream I went in for monitoring and my follies were huge and I had to trigger immediately. They were worried they didn't have enough time to develop, so yah...pretty much my worst nightmare. So much for not worrying about that!! Anywhoo, monitoring turned out to be follies are just right, not too big or small! Here's the current count:

Right Ovary: 12.5, 11, 10.5, 9.5, 8.5
Left Ovary: 12, 11.5, 10, 8
Lining: 9.5

Estradiol: 649

The ultrasound lady said there were 5 more on each side that were too small to measure, but could definitely pop by my next ultrasound. And my follies were "nicely spaced" meaning we want bundles of grapes...all similar in size! My RE said the goal was 10-15 follies, so I think I will definitely be within that range. I'm just Soooooo relieved. I just felt like once I had this first monitoring appt under my belt, it would give me some insight to how at least the follie growing portion of the program was gonna go. And tonight I actually reduce my folli.stim from 225 iu's to 150 iu's, but adding in 75 iu's of Men.apur. And I'm still on the 10 iu's of Lu.pron. Hubby came with today, so he got his Men.apur mixing lesson (there are two viles with a powder and liquid that have to be mixed, similar to a trigger shot), so tonight we're onto 3 shots a night! And I go back in on Thursday morning for monitoring part 2!

So today I'm feeling great!! I have been suffering a little from some Lu.pron induced headaches, which my acupuncturists have been all over, and am starting to feel a bit bloated. But really, so far so good. Except my poor tummy...which is starting to get a little sore, more from hubby trying to get a good pinch each time than the shot itself. My new estimate for trigger is Saturday, 4/10 and ER on Monday. So we'll see, stay tuned!

Friday, April 2, 2010

Finally Friday!!!

Friday has arrived, and I couldn't be happier. Not only is it supposed to be another gorgeous day in the Chi today, and even though I feel like the only one in the city who's working, I'm wearing a new super cute top from my major retail therapy spree yesterday, AND I start stimming tonight!! Wow, it seems like a million years ago my RE told me he thought we should go IVF but now we're are really in it.

And I'm ready, I'm so excited and oh so hopeful. The past few days I've really been going overboard on the worrying, this huge semi-irrational fear that I'm going to be the fastest responder ever and overstim by my first monitoring appt was really starting to get to me. It's just the build up with IVF is almost worse than the process itself, seriously...bring on the needles, the waiting I can't take ANY longer. But hubby and I went on a super long walk last night with the pups, and got out all our fears and concerns about IVF. I know, hubs has fears too, I was totally shocked...hah! But he does, and I don't ask him nearly enough what he's worried/scared I thought it was a great prep talk! And I realized I have to trust the doctors, they know what they're doing, and worrying about things I can't control won't do me any good. That and the nurse, my acupuncturist, whoever else I could ask all assured me the chances of me going in on Tuesday, and having over 35 follicles is near impossible.

So we start tonight and Tuesday am is my first official IVF monitoring appointment. It's funny because I told hubby last night that until this point it almost didn't seem real, like sure hubby is giving me my nightly Lu.pron injection...but I have nothing proving to me anything is actually happening. I really think going in there on Tuesday, seeing a bunch of follies (hopefully) will hit it home that this is for real! Hubby is going to come with me, because as much as I'm not worrying anymore, I know that morning I will be a nervous wreck...Monday is just going to be brutal!

As for the weekend I'm fairly busy so hopefully it will go by super quick. Tonight is couples game night downtown, I tend to be a tad on the competitive game night is my absolute fav. My favorite, Taboo...although hubby refuses to play with me because I can often act like Vin.ce in that scene from the Break Up. Yah, I's not pretty...but I like to win and I'm sorry but when you sit and stare at your card and say nothing for 30 seconds, well...then you shouldn't be playing taboo in the first place, hah! Love you hubs, and you knwo I dominate that game!! Then Sunday we have Easter brunch at my p's and Easter dinner at the in-laws, so all in all should be a great weekend, and one that will hopefully keep my mind off my upcoming monitoring! Have a great one everyone, and for those of you working I hope you get out of there early!!!
