Babies on the Brain and more

It is so hot here. We have a heat warning in the Boston area, saying that between the heat and humidity it will easily feel 100 degrees.
At least there's a decent breeze.
The bad bit is that there are also warnings of thunderstorms.
To swim or not to swim, that is the question!

One friend is coming over after work, probably about 2pm, to spend some time in the pool. Another friend is coming over closer to 5. Fiance will be home around 6, and if it's still so hot, he'll join us.
But the landlord has several people in the pool at the moment, and being a chunker, I'm embarrassed of going out to the pool, in a bathing suit, on my own. At least if I bring a fat friend, I'm not alone.
Isn't that an awful way to view things? I feel like I'm really missing out on the summer.

On another note, I finally ordered The Everything Getting Pregnant Book. It cost me a whopping $4.11 through Amazon.
I'm excited to receive it. Hopefully it won't take too long.

I also have the following books on my want-to-buy list:

Before Your Pregnancy

The Infertility Survival Handbook

Taking Charge of Your Fertility

Boost Your Fertility

Infertility Survival Guide

The Mother of All Pregnancy Books

and for some comic relief:


A Few Good Eggs

Our first appointment with Mass General Hospital's fertility specialist is July 15th. I'm quite excited, and also very worried about what we'll be told.
Long and short of it:
Fiance had cancer as a kid, and as a result, has low count, low motility, and not high testosterone.
I have never been like clockwork, then had a total thyroidectomy after papillary carcinoma, and get my "monthly visit" only, what, 3 to 4 times per year? Recent blood test for PCOS was negative, so I'm not giving up hope.

On yet another note, I've been thinking of creating separate Etsy stores; one for my nicer jewelry, and one for my "candy shop" resin things. It seems that my store has been overrun with the resin things, to the point of where nobody even notices my "nicer" things anymore.
But the dilemma with this is that I have marketing material (postcards, banners, car magnets, small magnets, business cards, etc.) all printed and in use that state I make all types of items. I don't currently have the funds to list all new items and reprint all these materials.
So I'm torn.
Ah, well. More next time!
