Vegas Day Two

The second day of our trip, we walked through the hotels located on the south side of the strip. We went through NYNY, Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, and MGM Grand. Each hotel is unique and it was tons of fun looking at all the small details. We really liked Luxor; Tommy wants to stay there next time. MGM had a lion habitat right in the casino! They were laying on the glass, chewing on a bone. It was so cute!

I love this one-Palm trees and a fruity drink!

We swung over to check out the Bellagio. I wanted to see the fountain show during the day, since we had seen it the night before. It was so beautiful! Inside the Bellagio was just as breathtaking.

So pretty. See the rainbow?

After a ridiculous amount of walking, we went back to the hotel and took a 2 hour nap. The only time I ever nap is on vacation, and I love it! We did a little gambling and Tom won $34 on a Roulette machine. His grandpa told him black 13 and he won on the second spin! Then, we went back to the Luxor in order to see the Bodies exhibit. They didn't let you take any pictures. The displays were amazing and interesting. Of course, I found the room about reproduction the most informative. I can never escape babies...

We went back to change and headed out for the night. We walked over to Toby Keith's bar aka. my heaven. I am a huge country fan and loved everything about the bar. They had is just like the cover charge, drink beer from a mason jar...

On a side note, I did decide to drink on our vacation. By Friday, I knew the IUI's hadn't worked. My boobs were sore and my face broke out. Those are my two period symptoms each and every month. Therefore, I had a few drinks and didn't have to worry about if I was pregnant.
Anyway, that wraps up day two. We were exhausted at the end of the day. My feet were blistered and bleeding. It was totally worth every bit though. Those days spent in the sun with the one you can't live without are wonderful memories we will have forever.
I will write about day three tomorrow. As far as this months cycle goes, I had a normal 28 days. I go in Friday for my day 3 check to get the okay for this month. If all goes according to plan, we will be doing the IUI's next weekend. My life has been broken up into two weeks increments. Two weeks of dr. appts, clomid, shots and IUI's and then two weeks of waiting. Im not sure which two week period is worse. I am somewhat relieved that this is the last time we have to do this. I am not happy about having to move to IVF, but it seems IUI's do not work for us. I think the IVF process is more of a "fear of the unknown" for me. I need to do more research and start asking questions.

Okay, the lions are absolutely precious and I'm totally jealous that you guys were at TK's bar. Looks like an amazing trip - oh and the blown glass ceiling was pretty impressive.

Can't wait to hear about day three.

I love the Bodies exhibit. I saw it up in Indianapolis a few months ago. As a nurse, i found it amazing. The baby section was cool. Good luck this month. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.
